Tis the Season for Thanksgiving



Where does the time go? How can it be that another year will soon come to an end? With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I encourage you to stop, breathe in deeply, look around, slowly exhale, and remember all that you have to be thankful for! It may sound contrived and trite, but I count my blessings each and every day. Really, I do! I've got a wonderful family, supportive friends, my health, a roof over my head, the BEST job in the universe. AND - I have YOU! The Spa 131 Team and I are committed to making The "SPA 131 Experience" the best it can be, and I am thankful to you, our loyal guests, for making us your choice for relaxation, renewal and refreshment. We all wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Are you HOLIDAY READY? Our final BOTOX AFTER HOURS of the year - and just in time to have you looking your spectacular best - will be Tuesday evening, November 11 from 5-7. Remember that it is "first come - first seen" in the privacy of my personal treatment room. Our guest is, John Newkirk, MD, who was just named BEST AESTHETIC PHYSICIAN in the Cayce-West Columbia Life Magazine. Dr. Newkirk will be providing Cosmetic Botox at $11 per unit, Juvederm Dermal Filler at $500 per vial and will have Lattisse available at $99 per kit. Reservations are required along with a $25 deposit. Give us a call at the Spa to let us know that you'll be joining us. Invite your BFF. You know that she'll be so glad that you did.



I am going to start adding ideas, suggestions, tips and with this issue, healthy recipes. This super easy Roasted Cauliflower idea may make even the pickiest eater enjoy a veggie on his/her plate.


You'll need 1 head of cauliflower, cut up
2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled and coarsely minced
Lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon
EVOO
Course salt and freshly ground pepper
Optional Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 400. Put the cut up cauliflower (you can also use Broccoli, Broccolini, Zucchini or Asparagus) in a single layer in an oven-proof baking dish. Toss in the fresh garlic. Sprinkle lemon juice over all and drizzle each piece with the olive Oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Be sure oven is up to temp before you place in oven. Cook 25-30 mins, or until the top of lightly brown. When "fork testing," tines should be able to easily pierce the veggies. Remove from oven and sprinkle generously with cheese, then dig in. Yum-Oh!

Essential Oil Tip of the Month



Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt, author of Medical Aromatherapy, believes that essential oils, both through topical application and inhalation, can positively impact our immune system. Recommendation for using Eucalyptus, Bay Laurel, Lavender or Tea Tree Oils for immune support are:

#1 BEST - 10-25 drops in 1 ounce of carrier oil (Jojoba, Sesame, Grapeseed). Massage feet and cover with cotton socks before bed.
#2 Good - Add 8 drops to warm bath AFTER you are immersed, but better when mixed with carrier like a tsp of preferred oil, or even a tbsp. of appli cider vinegar.
#3 OK - put 1-3 drops on tissue or cotton pad and deeply inhale. Exhale and repeat.
