What is Reiki?

Have you met our amazing Reiki Practitioner Surani Perera? Surani is a level 2 Reiki Practitioner who loves spreading the good balancing energy of Reiki to those who are interested! She's also a huge fan of retro vinyls (you might have caught her hosting at Lucky Shrike Bar), vintage shopping and delicious recipes. (click here to check out her instagram!)
  
We asked Surani to write a post for our clients to introduce them to Reiki,


Saul’s Beauty shop offers so many wonderful services for taking care of your body in a variety of aspects. Self love and self care is the new black. People are shifting back to remembering that we are all so precious, and taking good care of ourselves, is the best way we can be able to better love those who are near and dear to us. Taking care of and nurturing children can come naturally to us, but sometimes we forget that we too need to be nurtured in order to live our best life. Saul’s Beauty Shop also offers Reiki, which is an ancient practice that is now gaining popularity, amongst celebrities, Athletes, CEO's, and others seeking a holistic way to bring deep relaxation into their lives, in order to restore the body to its natural state of balance. When the body is in balance, it is able to better heal and repair itself.

Reiki is a gentle, non invasive treatment that involves the Reiki Practitioner placing their hands lightly on different positions of the recipient’s body for a few minutes in each position. It helps promote the circulation of energy within the body by releasing blockages caused by stress, tension, illness, injury, etc. Reiki feels different for everyone who experiences it, but the common denominator is that it is deeply relaxing. Reiki can give you a break from your body and mind, so you can relax, recharge, and feel radiant from the inside out. If you would like to read more about Reiki, here is an article that appeared in The Reiki Times. However there are several books, and articles available in print and online for those seeking a deeper understanding of Reiki. (click here to check out an example)  I personally do Reiki on myself as a part of my morning routine. To me, it is a balancing and relaxing way to start my day. If you would like to experience Reiki, feel free to book an appointment with me, Surani, at Saul’s Beauty Shop.



This short video gives a simple explanation of Reiki



A couple of treatments before and over the holidays, can be a great way to help keep you in balance as the world around you seems to get busier. I hope you are presented with plenty of opportunities to rest, relax and nurture yourself.



Have yourself a lovely day.

Keep Your Glow & Energy This Fall

Change are coming! By that we mean season changes. Estheticians tend to be suckers for cycles, we’re obsessed with the skincare cycle, hormonal cycles and the changes the seasons make on your selfcare. Going into the cooler months are interesting because your body really does adjust in a dramatic way, we can also get into more intense skincare treatments because of the calmer lifestyle and lower sunlight exposure. In this newsletter we’ll highlight some changes you might feel physically, and some routine changes you might want to consider to look & feel your best for the pesky holidays!


Sleeping More


On average in October people can sleep up to 2.7 more hours per a day. Low sunlight increases your desire and ability to sleep longer but a Harvard Study showed that your quality of sleep decreases - which explains why you feel groggy despite all that time in bed. When UV rays from the sun hit your retina it triggers a chemical response which strongly supports your circadian sleep patterns. Your body basically gets better at falling asleep, and sleeping hard in the summer so when the sun is out you have lots of energy to get stuff done. This is without even getting into the fact your Vitamin D resources tend to get a touch depleted during less sunny months.

A great thing about sleeping longer is that your nighttime skincare products get to stay on longer! This is fantastic for Vitamin C rich products and ingredients created to boost collagen production like the Age Corrective Products (Bamboo Firming Fluid, Bamboo Age Corrective Mask, Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer, Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream for Face & Neck, Lavender Age Corrective Night Concentrate & Lavender Age Corrective Night Eye Cream).

If you want to help your body deal with changes in your sleeping pattern and energy levels we love Acupuncture for insomnia or troubled sleep patterns & Reiki for re-balancing energy and helping the body de-stress.



Moody Blues


It’s anxiety season, yay! While the understanding of why Vitamin D influences depression is not fully understood (according to a study at St. Joseph’s Hospital), people do tend to feel their energy and good spirits take a hit as it cools down. Those suffering from SAD can also see a melatonin boost, the sleepy chemical that you usually take when dealing with jet lag. There are few changes people will introduce sometimes without even noticing it:
  • Exercising less- In the summer you’re more likely to be out and about, hiking, long walks, swimming etc. all of those will help boost your energy and aid in coping with negative feelings
  • Socializing less- It’s amazing how much a good chat with a friend can help you let go of a bad day, get you smiling and ensure you feel a sense of community and belonging. The cool weather makes last minute park or patio hangs less frequent
  • Eating More Carbs- Carbs are delicious, so so so delicious, but it can also get you into a carb coma and back up your digestive system and trigger increased weight gain.

We all know when we’re feeling down it seems like it shows everywhere and it’s so easy to fall into a cycle and throw self care out the window. Daily rituals, whether it’s masking, serum and moisturizer, recommended stretches or breathing exercises, can help you maintain a level of self satisfaction and content-ness.

We have you covered in so many ways for this, Acupuncture, Reiki and Massage can help your body de-stress and cope with anxiety. Acupuncture can also help with digestion issues or eczema that is triggered from carb overload. We love that we’re not a cold clinical and uppity feeling spa, so if you’re having a hard time getting friends to commit to plans, when you come here you can be in the land of chit chats while we deliver some nurturing “I look great” vibes into your life! (If in a rush I’m a big fan of a lash or brow tint with a scalp massage. [$27 + tax])

Hormonal Shift


In an interesting turn of events (or maybe a built in coping mechanism for all the increased anxiety) Fall & Winter can be a frisky time. Studies show increased hormonal production (especially testerone) in the Fall months, with that can also come different moods, changes in the skin and more frustration if you’re dating in Toronto.
We love the Eight Greens line from Eminence for targeting hormonal shifts in the skin, it helps with breakout activity, hot flashes and hormonal hyperpigmentation while slowing down the signs of ageing! Acupuncture is a very popular approach for balancing hormones, massage and Reiki can help with fluctuations due to it’s de-stressing and soothing approach.

Other Changes To Consider This Season:


Fall is the time to start thinking about Peel Series. Saul’s has two peel series (one is coming in October).

There is the Advanced Acne Salicylic Acid Peel series which is 4 peel treatments, preferably done 1x a week. This is great for clogged pores, break out activity and post breakout hyper pigmentation.

Our Yam and Pumpkin Peel Series is three 30 minute treatments and  one 45 minute treatment, this peel series is bit more firming and anti aging. It will still help bring congestion to the surface, boosting purging, eliminating uneven texture and break out activity. The firming and brightening of this peel are it’s biggest strengths though.
Sunscreen absolutely must be worn when doing these peels though! There will potentially be some flaky days and you are expected to not exfoliate at home during this series. We also cannot perform these peels on skins currently using retinols, prescription acne medication or steroids. You must be off all topical acne meds for at least 2 weeks (preferably a month). Any internal acne medications (like Accutane) you need to have been off for a year. These peel series go BEAUTIFULLY with Cosmetic Acupuncture.
