7 Acupressure Points for Migraine Relief

Categories // Wellness Tips

Sometimes I feel helpless when my child is sick and there's not much I can do to help alleviate her discomfort or pain.

Have you felt that way?

This spring, our daughter, may have been going through hormonal changes (she is a tween!) because she started suffering from migraines.

Her symptoms would start with blurry vision, but then get progressively worse with each episode.

One morning her symptoms got unbearable where she couldn't even walk or remember her own name! After visiting the local ER, I was told to keep her hydrated and make sure she naps when this happens again.

"What? That's all!" I thought to myself.

Next day, she suffered another episode and couldn't sleep because her head hurt so much. I felt helpless!

"How can I comfort her?" I asked myself. Then I remembered my practice in reflexology and recalled some important acupressure points.

As I applied pressure to each point (see in the diagram), my daughter felt relaxed and fell asleep immediately. A few weeks later she had another episode and I applied the same acupressure points, and again, she immediately fell asleep.

Sometimes we forget that we have choices and alternatives, and tend to focus only on Western medicine as the answer. I'm guilty of that too! However, as a mother, I was trying to figure out that her symptoms were not related to anything else and it's always best to take that extra precaution.

If you or your child suffers from migraines, test out these points and let us know!

JicamaJicama is very healthy root vegetable that is part of the legume family. It grows natively in Central America, and is a staple in warm climates as far away as South Asia.

Jicama has a similar texture to turnip, and a taste closer to that of an apple. Buy when it is firm to the touch, and store in a cool dark place for up to four weeks.

Will I feel Deprived on the Ideal Protein Diet?

Categories // Wellness Tips

Ideal Weight FoodAs an authorized centre featuring Ideal Protein weight loss method, many potential clients are worried about deprivation because it is  a low carb program. On the contrary, we have had clients join the program and comment on how they do not feel deprived and we believe it is for the following reasons:

·         Ideal protein’s goal is for the client to have a pleasurable and effective experience, and they do that by providing foods that give pleasure like the bars that contain, peanut butter, milk chocolate, lemon poppy, chocolate mint and caramel nut that satisfies the sweet tooth. They also provide chips to satisfy those with a ‘salty tooth’!

·         There are amazing recipes on the internet where clients on this program, from all over the world, have created unique waffles, breads, cookies and more from Ideal Protein foods.

·         Once the blood sugar stabilizes in your body, cravings disappear.

·         During social events, proactive clients make phenomenal recipes out of Ideal Protein foods or vegetables and feed it to their friends – sense of deprivation doesn’t even exist.

No diet is easy and a person is only ready when they are fully committed and are willing to make a lifestyle change rather than looking it at it as a quick fix. This method also teaches you how to eat better during the maintenance phase and we have made this a mandatory part of the program at Shanti Wellness Centre.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Categories // Wellness Tips

04 Hair RemovalPeople who are tired of shaving, tweezing, and waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal has become the preferred option—and a beautiful solution. Hair removal continues to be the #1 requested energy-based aesthetic treatment. While hair removal is most popular among women,  laser hair removal for men is an ever-increasing group, as men seek treatment for areas such as their chests and backs! Darren, one of our male clients, had a lot of hair growth (more than the average man) on his shoulders and back. He was tired of it, especially when going on warm holidays or swimming.

He saw one of our technicians and he couldn’t believe the results just after 2 treatments. He also couldn’t believe the great price point he was getting from us compared to going to Edmonton. After 5 treatments, he is so happy and feels confident about himself. We will be posting a video on his treatment soon!

We carry Cynosure Laser system and it is the leading company in laser technologies. View before and after pictures on laser hair removal here:


Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

Categories // Wellness Tips

Salt lamps release negatively charged ions. These negative ions neutralize positively charged ions given out by computers, televisions, power grids etc. Negatively charged ions create an environment that is similar to being near the sea or a waterfall and are what give the air in these areas that fresh feeling. The salt lamps should be lit at all times as they give off more negative ions that way.

By using Salt Crystal lamps, we can easily improve our environment, not only thorough the ionizing effects of the lamp but through the beautiful light they cast in a room! It is highly recommended to use them near a TV or computer, in a designated smoking room and an air-conditioned room.

Where do Salt Lamps come from?

Salt crystal lamps are made from salt crystal rocks. This salt crystal comes from the ancient seas and is now available in the foothills of the Himalayas in Pakistan. Salt crystals of this quality are rare.

Lamp Full Image5
How are Salt Lamps made?

Explosives and standard mining methods cannot be used when mining salt crystal rock; they must be hand crafted to retain their original structure. This means that every salt lamp is different in size, shape, colour and intensity. Each salt lamp is unique.

Lamp Full Image2
Where should I put my salt lamp?

  • Near a television or computer
  • Child's bedroom - it also acts as a great nightlight!
  • At the office
  • Designated smoking room
  • Massage room
  • Meditation room
  • Waiting room
  • Exercise studio such as yoga or Pilates studios

Over 20 functions the T-Zone Vibration machine

Categories // Wellness Tips

Check out this list of over 20 (and counting!) functions the T-Zone Vibration machine can perform for you. 
Top 20

Every single one of these functions are worth owning a machine just on their own, but in combination - there is absolutely nobody in the world who wouldn't benefit from whole body vibration.

Do you want to lose weight? T-Zone Vibration is a cardio machine.

T-Zone Vibration has the only vibration machine that has aerobic capabilities. Use your magic mat, included with all new machines, and perform stutter steps, high knees, or any number of aerobic exercises shown on our youtube site to get your heart rate up.

  Do you want to work out to get stronger? T-Zone vibration is a strength training machine.

The classic use of vibration is for Low Impact strength training. Keep your speed low and follow along the routines programmed into your aerobic or golf machines, our Vibration exercise DVD, or any other set of exercises designed to work your core, upper and lower body.

Vibrationmachine3tzone2Are you low on time? T-Zone Vibration is a time-saving machine.

With a T-Zone Vibration machine, 10 minutes = 1 hour. How? Because with T-Zone you are working your whole body out at once, instead of one muscle group at a time. A workout on a whole body vibration takes less time with more dramatic results than conventional exercise.

Do you spend a lot of time sitting? T-Zone Vibration is an antidote to sitting disease.

Did you know sitting has been found to be on par with smoking as a cause of disease? Thankfully T-Zone vibration is all you need to get relief. Sitting is like a lower-gravity environment while vibration ramps up the g-force by a factor of 3, 4, or 5 times - so T-Zone vibration not offers only the movement needed to counteract too much sitting, it offers an increased g-force (or gravity) - which is exactly what is missing when in a chair or bed for hours at a time. 

Do you play sports? T-Zone vibration is a warm up and cool down machine.

Warm up is essential for high level performance as well as injury prevention. Some people use their vibration machine exclusively as a warm up machine before golfing, running, or other sport performance. Use a higher speed and move through the range of motion you are warming up for. Cooling down after exercise can be just as beneficial. Again, a high speed is best - work through a counter motion for the muscles you have been using.

  Do you want to try interval training? T-Zone Vibration is an interval training machine.

T-Zone Vibration's newest models actually come with interval training programming built right in - just press a button and you're ready to go.

VT20 NewApril2012Do you want to get faster? T-Zone vibration is a muscle speed machine.

Due to increased flexibility as well as the muscle growth from your body's reactions to the destabilizing motion of the machine, your muscles will grow and perform faster than they would without vibration. 

Have you had an injury? T-Zone is a therapy machine.

Because of it's low impact and gentle but effective nature, a huge segment of vibration users come to vibration after an injury. They use it to work the strength back up and deal with discomfort.  Vibration can also be used in partnership with your health practitioner by working through a set of prescribed exercises at home. Of course, check with your health practitioner first to ensure you are ready for vibration training.

Do you go to a Chiropractor? T-Zone Vibration is a chiropractic machine.

Chiropractors love whole body vibration for restoring physical function, and allowing their patients to treat themselves at home between visits.  

Do you love massage and to feel good? T-Zone Vibration is a massage machine.

Just lying on your machine at high speeds feels great and can get things moving in the body, giving you that all-over good feeling.

Do you have a bad back, hip, knee, or other joint issues? T-Zone vibration works to restore joint function.

Many people have found vibration to be the only thing to help them with back, hip, shoulder, knee, even wrist discomfort! After trying everything else, vibration has even helped people walk who were previously confined to a a walker or wheelchair.  Talk to your health practitioner and local vibration expert about how to get moving again.


Do you use or think you might need to use a walker, or generally have an issue with stability? T-Zone vibration is a stability machine.

Vibration helps to 'retrain' the body and regain some lost stability for those with ongoing stability issues. It also helps add stability for those who want to improve sport performance or just feel great. Low speeds are best here while performing some mobility stretches such as the broomstick or angry cat.

Do you want to work on those trouble spots? T-Zone vibration decreases cellulite visibility.

Just using your vibration machine regularly has been proven to decrease cellulite visibility! In 6 weeks you are likely to enjoy a smoother, slimmer appearance.

Do you want to look younger? T-Zone Vibration is a facial machine.

Stand on your machine at a high speed, and using your palms and fingers gently 'brush' the skin on your face and neck, always going in the direction of your heart. In 3 minutes you'll notice a brighter more youthful appearance!

Are you worried about toxin buildup in the body? T-Zone vibration is a toxin removal machine.

Using your vibration machine at a low or high speed will help your body work through and eliminate harmful toxins from the body. Natural health practitioners love it for it's drug-free, natural way of helping the body improve function.


Do you want better coordination for sports or for improved daily function? T-Zone vibration is a coordination machine.

The see-saw motion of the oscillating vibration machine helps your body improve coordination. By adding strength exercises you will further enhance the effect.

Do you want to increase your flexibility for injury recuperation, sports, or daily comfort? T-Zone Vibration is a flexibility machine.

This is one of the benefits of vibration that can be demonstrated the fastest. Try rotating your body at the hip and see how far you can turn. Now try after being on a vibration machine for just a few minutes - you will see a huge increase in your range of motion, usually in under 3 minutes. Range of motion is a major factor in managing mobility issues as well as improving sports performance.

Do you want to improve your golf or other sport game? T-Zone is an explosive power machine.

Explosive power is one of the most studied effects of vibration training. Studies show that when doing the same exercises on the ground as on a vibration machine, the vibration machine group will show much higher gains in explosive power as well as other strength criteria. 

Do you want to feel more energized? T-Zone Vibration is an energy machine.

For those who just want to feel better and get through their day with ease, vibration is the best tool for increasing your energy and vigour. Just using vibration regularly will help you see a difference.

Do you want to look better overall? T-Zone Vibration is a tighten and tone machine.

Want to look a little better, in and out of your jeans? Vibration works faster than conventional exercise at getting to your fitness goals.

Do you want the best athletic performance? T-Zone Vibration is a Dynamic vs. Static stretching machine.

If you want to get the best sports performance, you probably already know that static stretching has been shown to actually decrease strength. Vibration offers dynamic stretching, which is warm muscle stretching, widely considered to be the best type of stretching.
