Cassandra’S PICK

“THE SOURCe”

by Dr Tara Swart

This book focuses on the power of positive thinking and reveals the fascinating science that supports The Law of Attraction as an effective tool for discovering your authentic self and accessing your best life now. One of the reasons I love this book is because Dr. Swart bridges the gap between skepticism and belief in The Law of Attraction by using the latest scientific research in neuroscience and behavioral psychology to explain the power of visualization and mindfulness. She sheds light on the mechanisms behind these powerful systems by including lessons on neuroplasticity, the mind-body connection, emotional intelligence, and self-care practices. I also absolutely love this book’s practicality because it moves beyond theory alone, and offers a compelling call to action. It equips readers with science-backed visualization and manifestation techniques to empower them to break free from self-limiting beliefs and achieve their full potential.

VIKTORIYA’S PICK

“Total reflexology”

by Kevin & Barbara Kunz

I am reading “Total Reflexology” by Kevin and Barbara Kunz. I love this book because, as a massage therapist, it helps me learn more about the theory, evidence, and benefits of different modalities. “Total Reflexology” serves as a guide to enhance my skills in massage therapy. Theory: Reflexology works with reflex zones on the feet and hands that connect to organs and body systems. Benefits: Reflexology may offer relaxation and stress relief, improving overall well-being. It’s considered safe for healthy individuals, though caution is advised for people with certain health conditions. “Total Reflexology” focuses on the specific theory and practice of reflexology, which can be used to achieve relaxation, improve circulation, and promote healing.

Eating

In the area for a spa service? Why not grab a quick bite while you’re at it!

venus’S PICK

the ground CPG

120 S 18th St.
Philadelphia, PA 19103

If you’re in Philadelphia and in need of a quick cup of coffee or a snack before or after your spa visit, check out The Ground on 18th Street! Their matcha with freshly-made lavender sweetener is a must-try. They offer a variety of healthy options for quick bites and delicious pastries. Plus, this cafe doubles as a plant and gift shop, so you can pick up a new floral friend while you’re there!

Purchasing

If you’re looking to enhance your at-home relaxation routine, look no further!

viktoriya’S PICK

Environ
Body Oil Forte

I highly recommend Body Oil Forte to be used at home after a bath or shower. It’s a blend of vitamins A, C, & E that promotes skin health and relaxation, reduces muscle tension, and enhances the massage experience. I use it and have received great feedback from clients.

Obsessing

We are obsessed.

Baudelaire Dry Brush Exfoliate
For example, use Baudelaire’s dry brushes to gently but firmly exfoliate the skin on your body!

cassandra’S PICK

dry brushing

It’s a full-body skincare technique that utilizes a natural-fiber bristle brush to gently but firmly exfoliate the skin. The process involves brushing the skin in wide, circular motions starting at the soles of the feet and working upwards over the entire body. A comprehensive skincare routine, just like the skin itself, should encompass the whole body, not just the face. Dry brushing helps to remove dead skin cells, boost collagen production, improve circulation, and aid lymphatic drainage. After dry brushing, a cool shower can be taken to wash off dead skin cells. Then finish off the routine by applying a natural plant oil or body lotion to moisturize the skin.

Recommending

Whether you are local to our PHL or NYC locations or follow us from afar, Rescue Spa will always have the best recommendations for…

viktoriya’S PICK

foam rolling

I often recommend that my clients incorporate foam rolling into their self-care routine. It helps release muscle tightness, improve flexibility, and reduce the risk of injury. It’s an excellent tool for self-massage and recovery.

To-Do List

See what we’re to-doing this weekend!

Venus’S PICK

green is good!

Exposure to green is good for generating positive, calm emotions. I love gardening because it
