The Help of Aromatheray Massage Oil Release Stress and Provides Relaxation

A massage with the addition of essential oils have been performed for centuries.

For good reason too, according to healthqas,massages aid in de-stressing, relaxation and provide a great form of physical and emotional therapy and massages are enhanced by adding essential oils.

Essential oils have the ability to add a lot to a massage as oils can assist in more deeply relaxing the muscles, to clear up the spirit and to provide an uplifting, relaxing and over all calming massage. .

With sence of smell being as strong as it is – think about it, the smell of the kitchen and a great meal being prepared or the smell of coffee when you walk into your favorite coffee shop (Starbucks?, Dietrich’s?, etc.) , or the smell of freshly cut flowers, and so many other smell, all make us feel so good, and this is the same essential oils.

Essential oils come in divided into high, low and base notes – as in the perfume world – there are the heavier deeper smells, which linger and the higher notes that have a more uplifting immediate effect – citrus oils for example are very bright, cheery and uplifting. When feeling a little down or depressed try having a massage with some Melissa in the blend, or perhaps some Mandarin and you will feel as though that cloud that’s been following you around all day has lifted, or is certainly not as heavy as it was.

The essential oils, when used in massage, can help to eliminate toxins, improve the skin, improve circulation, and effectively give you a work out without you having to do anything – other than lie down and relax (let the therapist do all the work!)

Some oils such as black pepper and marjoram, will help with muscle tension and help release those tight shoulder muscles after a day in front of that computer.

Others, such as rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, can help to boost the sex drive, whilst others can help boost the immune system – such as tea tree, and others that help to detox – such as juniper.
The trick is to find the essential oil you want to use:

Black pepper or marjoram both are warming, circulation and good for relief of muccle tension.
Lavender is helpful with headaches, wounds and bruises..
Rose is mildly sedative and premenstrual tension/pain, symptoms of menopause andreduced libido. Do not use if pregnant.
Rosemary is mild stimulant and is good whenr physically fatigued and also helps with rheumatic aches and pains.
Jasmine and Sandlewood are thought by many to be aphrodisiacs.
Neroli is some what warming, improves circulation, helps with premenstrual tension and pain, and with backaches.
Eucalyptus has a strong mind clearing smell and is very good for muscular aches and pains and rheumatic conditions.

And when you have the time to go online, or into your local health food store, see what other essential oils interests you.

Once you have choosen the essential oil or the combination of oil you want to use you need to select a carrier oil to add the oil to.

What are carrier oils, they are the oils that carry the essential oil. There are a wide variety available and the best ones for massages include:

Almond Oil – easily absorbed by the skin, is very smooth and is beneficial for your hair, as well as dry skin and brittle nails
Apricot kernel Oil – a light oil that is particularly good for use on the face if the skin is dry or aging
Avocado Oil – heavy and nutrient rich, good for dry, sensitive skin
Evening Primrose Oil – helpful for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, does not have a long shelf life
Grapeseed Oil – light weight and good for oily skin
Hazelnut Oil – penetrates the skin very easily and is deeply nourishing
Jojoba Oil – light weight and rich in vitamins, used in shampoos and treats dandruff and dry scalp
Peach Kernel Oil – light, contains vitamins A & E, very good for the face
Soya Oil – easily absorbed, rich in vitamin E

Have you made an appointment for a massage yet?!

Recipe Chicken Stir Fry

Do you struggle with ideas for dinner?  Well this is a simple yet satisfying recipe that your whole family will enjoy.  It is also so very versatile so you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand.

This is also one of those meals that has several steps but isn’t hard at all.

Because of the versatility of this recipe, you can vary the amounts of these ingredients as well. I’m just estimating what was used since I don’t measure with this throw together recipe.

Ingredients:

Three chicken tenderloins, chopped into chunks
1 medium onion, cut in small pieces
Two handfuls of baby carrots, chopped into medium chunks
Two medium zucchinis, sliced
Small bag of asparagus, chopped into one inch pieces after being trimmed
1/2 cup of leftover basmati rice
3 eggs
2 tablespoons soy sauce or to taste
Olive oil
Canola oil

Instructions:

1. Coat cast iron skillet with a little canola oil then place onions, carrots, zucchini, and asparagus in the skillet.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Cook in the oven at 400 degrees until tender.  This may take up to an hour depending on the size of your vegetables.  (This is completely optional.  You can cook these on the stove top if you prefer but using the oven means you don’t have to watch them as closely plus the flavor of slow cooking the vegetables is amazing.)

2. When the vegetables are almost done, using a wok or large skillet, cook the chicken in olive oil (season with salt and pepper).  Once chicken is done put in a bowl to the side.

3. Using the same pan, add a little oil then scramble the eggs (season with a little salt and pepper).  After they are cooked thoroughly place in the same bowl as the chicken.

4. Again, using the same pan, add more olive oil (make sure you pan is hot for this step) and cook the leftover basmati rice.  You want to add a little crispiness to the rice which is why you want the pan hot.

5. When the rice is done (less than 5 minutes) add vegetables, chicken, and eggs to your pan.  Mix together and add soy sauce to taste.  Stir together for a few minutes or so just to incorporate the flavors.

6. Serve and enjoy!

Please note, the amount of chicken may look minuscule but that is because I am cutting back on our consumption of animal protein when other protein sources are present.  Feel free to increase the amount of chicken, if desired.  Also, leftover plain rice is the best.  Fresh rice is hard to crisp.  Finally, be sure not to salt vegetables, chicken, and eggs too much since you will be using soy sauce in the last step.  A light sprinkle is adequate.

World T20 updates Rohit replaces Kohli vs England

Colombo: 12 overs: Rohit Sharma had a fine knock alongside Pakistan in the warm-up match and he has brought the assurance out today. A short-arm prod sends the ball flying to the hurdle off Dernbach’s bowling. India though, slightly after where they would have wanted to be. Three-figure spot yet to come while.

10/3: Swann remove Kohli on 40! He has been a spine of sort in the Indian flesh. The 1st ball of the 11th over goes throughout Gambhir but the keeper misses a chance to base. A single and Kohli get on hit. He swings double, misses and skies the 3rd for the fielder at cavernous mid-wicket. In walk Rohit.

10 overs: India plays spin well and have played Swann well. It is now that only singles have come off his bowling which is not of much value much in T20 cricket. Swann’s 2 have cost fourteen. Bresnan, bowling from the other finish although, has a slightly dissimilar tale. Kohli smashed his 2nd ball of the 10th over with informal arrogance. The bowler cost seven in his opening over but his 2nd went for 2 more. India: 80/1 in ten overs.

8 overs: Graeme Swann bowled the 7th over and was capable to get some admiration from Gambhir and Kohli. Both batsmen negotiate the bowler with singles. Stuart Broad bowled his 2nd and the 8th over. He experienced the batsman with some short delivery but not too much problem for Indians. Kohli even manage to take the aerial route which went throughout the hands of a jumping Swann, and all the way to the barrier.

6 overs: Gambhir seem to be firm to take the attack to the opponent. Slaps Finn for eleven runs in the 6th over. Virat Kohli at the other end is also receiving his eye in and should, as see previous to, sacking soon.

4 overs: Gambhir is at the pleat with in-form Kohli. Kohli’s bat has been quiet so far although he has only faced a pair of deliveries. Tim Bresnan walk in for the 5th.

2.4: Irfan Pathan cascade to Steven Finn. He cut Finn with brightness when the over begin but the bowler replied by knock the stumps

2 overs: Gautam Gambhir looks in very well touch. He has taken Jade Dernbach to the barrier a couple of times in the 2nd over of the innings. India opens with a big hit. Gambhir has Irfan for group.

0.0 overs: Irfan, Gambhir open versus England. Finn with the attack over.

On toss: England wins the toss and opted to bowl 1st alongside India in the final Group A match, here on Sunday.

Tim Bresnan replace Samit Patel for England as India make 4 changes. Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, R Ashwin and Manoj Tiwary be seated out for India with Ashok Dinda get to play.

With together teams having won their own opening clashes at Afgnistan’s expenditure, the conflict is of no result as far as advancing in the contest is concerned. It however is probable to be a fine test of how the 2 teams stack-up alongside each other and if they have the weapons to last till the title conflict.

England was more believable in their win alongside Afghanistan, compare to India. Luke Wright cracked his way to a victorious 55. India’s reply with the bat although will be from Virat Kohli’s bat who also struck a 50 in the opening match and is fine form.

Teams:

India: G Gambhir, V Kohli, SK Raina, Yuvraj Singh, RG Sharma, MS Dhoni, IK Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, PP Chawla, AB Dinda, L Balaji

England: C Kieswetter, AD Hales, LJ Wright, EJG Morgan, JC Buttler, JM Bairstow, TT Bresnan, SCJ Broad, GP Swann, ST Finn, JW Dernbach

I’m not impressed.

Unless of course Super Hans is the next Doctor!

How to Cure Your Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

How to Cure Your Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The classic definition of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is usually as follows:

“A disorder characterized by at least six months of debilitating fatigue
that begins suddenly and is usually accompanied by mild fever, sore throat,
tender lymph nodes, muscle pain and weakness, joint pain, headache, sleep
disorders, confusion, memory loss, and visual disturbances. Once routinely
dismissed as an imagined rather than a specific physical condition,
chronic fatigue syndrome remains controversial. ”
This quote was taken from the Encyclopedia Brittanica. It went on to say…
” …only a few sufferers become progressively worse; most improve gradually,
and some eventually achieve full recovery.”

The last line of that statement gives us great hope! Yes, It’s true!
Some do achieve full recovery! And of course that is my mission, and purpose
for this page. I have a strong desire to help as many people as possible achieve
a recovery story of their own using non-conventional techniques. Why do we
use what would be considered non-conventional techniques?
Well, just listen to what the doctors have to say about chronic fatigue syndrome.
The following quote was taken from “The Family Doctor” reference library.
(If you have seen a doctor concerning your  own Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
I am sure that this will sound very familiar).

“There is still NO known cause or cure (for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).
With no definitive treatment, the SYMPTOMS are treated with Aspirin,
Sleeping pills & Antidepressants.
The syndrome is certainly one of the more perplexing situations that physicians
have to deal with. It’s called a syndrome because as yet, there are NO identifiable
causes and therefore NO specific treatments available.
The working definition shows our lack of precise knowledge about the ailment.
The outlook is NOT PROMISING either, as most patients do not return to their
previous levels of energy, but MUST ACCEPT LIFE AT A REDUCED PACE,
unless a cause or cure can be discovered.”
From: “The Family Doctor”

Wow! I guess that is what the antidepressants are for. What a negative and
perplexing statement, considering that we were just told  that people DO recover
from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
What they are admitting is that they don’t know how all of those people recovered!
You see, the doctor’s inability to apply one definitive cause of the Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome will keep them from discovering it’s source indefinitely, for it is our belief
that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome IS NOT the result of one cause, (such as a virus),
but is instead the culmination of many different causes working in concert against
the body. In fact, despite previous theories, infections such as the Epstein Barr Virus
DO NOT seem to be associated with this illness.
Keeping that in mind,  we feel that your best course of action  is to discuss this issue
with someone who has already won the battle against Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
rather than have your doctor continue to tell you the same old depressing story
from month to month.

So before you run out and buy aspirin, sleeping pills, and Antidepressants,
DON’T !!!
We are not going to take the approach that there is no cause, so let’s put some
band aids on the symptoms.
We don’t want to put a temporary fix on the symptoms. We want to identify
and eliminate the root causes that are keeping you from optimal health.
These “medical fixes” will wind up causing your body even more
damage than good over time!
Just look at the following list of side effects associated with the doctor recommended
drugs listed above:
Loss of hearing, Severe Confusion, Convulsions, Shortness of Breath, Vision Problems,
Unusually High Blood Pressure, Severe Chest Pain, and Dizziness.
This is just the short list. (Many of the side effects are too disturbing to even list here).
Do be aware that the side effects of these doctor recommended drugs may be worse
than the Chronic Fatigue itself!
No, drugs are NOT the answer! We should mention, in all fairness, that our techniques
also come with it’s own set of side effects. They include:
More energy, nicer skin, brighter eyes, thicker hair, and you will see more smiles
on your face! Oh, and there was one other unexpected side effect that I experienced.
As my body began to balance itself, I lost weight (even though I was not trying too!)
I hope this sounds promising to you. But here is also something else to consider.
Many times people are not terribly excited about our recommendations.
They tend to challenge people’s familiar life style patterns, and in many ways threaten
one’s comfort zone.
So the question that you need to think about is whether or not you want the truth
or a doctor’s useless pill. We are going to shoot straight with you, and hopefully,
you will give yourself a chance. But ultimately the decision is yours.
Understand that my road to recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was a
series of Life-Style changes.
The changes were approached slowly and over time. If you make changes all at once
and too quickly, they will fall by the road side,  just like all of our New Year’s Resolutions,
and then you run a higher risk of failure.
It may have taken years for us to get where we are and it may also take some time
for us to recover. (The good news though, is that I have witnessed recovery take
place quite rapidly).
Your body will need time to adjust to some of these changes. And you will need to do
your best to be diligent and faithful to your goals.
You will need to develop my recommendations into habits, and this may take time
to accomplish. As long as you are willing to do what it takes to achieve your desired results,
you will have a much better chance at long term success.
It amazes me the amount of people that complain about how they feel,
yet they do not want to take the necessary steps to reverse their condition.
I remember a conversation that I had with someone concerning cholesterol and how,
in excess, it is responsible for a staggering number of deaths every year. Of course,
my recommendation was to eliminate high levels of Cholesterol from the diet so that
the clogging of the arteries would be avoided.
The response I was given was, “Well, that’s what heart surgery is for”.
If you wish to abuse your body and then leave it to the medical facilities to try to
“fix” it for you, then you are reading the wrong information.  We believe in taking personal
responsibility for our state of health. Therefore, the recommendations that you will find
categorized below are not band aids,  but a new way of life that will be very effective
in reversing your Chronic Fatigue rather than just trying to temporarily mask symptoms.
“The Family Doctor” quoted above:
“The outlook is NOT PROMISING , as most patients do not return to their previous
levels of energy….”
Consider this to be very good news! Why? Because in my case they were absolutely correct.
I did not return to my previous level of energy. Instead, using the techniques below,
I achieved  a new level of energy that I had never before experienced. But please,
don’t tell the doctors about my story. I don’t want them calling me, trying to convince me
that my recovery is all in my mind!
I know that I cannot claim that I have the answer for everyone. What I can do, is share
with you what has worked for me, in the hopes that it will work for you too.
I must also advise you to consult your doctor, especially if you have not been diagnosed
with Chronic Fatigue. Your symptoms may be the result of a different ailment.
I wish you the very best in your journey. I know that it will not always be easy.
So, if  you have any questions or a need for support, feel free to call me or e-mail
me personally.

China auto industry

The automotive industry builds a lot of capital and is important to many people. Materials need to be purchased from someone and they are used to create a product to mass produce and sell to the world. It is also important to those that are provided with a job to participate in the creating or the selling of the cars.

The Shanghai Automotive Industry Group has five different Marques. This short introductory article briefly identifies the third and fourth Marques. The third is known as Roewe. It originates in China and serves the Chinese market exclusively. The fourth is known as Soyat. It also originates in and will exclusively serve Chinese markets.

Shannxi Auto was rightly ranked the fortieth largest motor vehicle manufacturer in the world in the year 2009. Shannxi manufactured 79,026 motor vehicles, which is a little more than ten thousand fewer vehicles than Kuozui manufactured in that same year. Shannxi shows that they manufacture cars more than anything else.

Online Sales On The Rise!

Online retail sales have given birth to a whole new industry over the last ten years. Everything from Mitsubishi Parts Mopar parts, used books, jewelry Jeep parts to military surplus is sold online. One of the most successful online stores of course is Amazon. The online retail sales market continues to grow by leaps and bounds with the entry of larger retailers like Macys and Bloomingdales who can boast about a 30% increase in online sales in one month in 2011. The picture painted for the growth of online sales is impressive and when you consider that many retailers do not separate their online sales when they report their sales it becomes even more impressive.

There are many reasons for the surge of online retail sales. Today’s unstable economy and the price of gasoline keep many consumers at home. Most households have at least one computer. What better way to conserve gas than to surf the internet to find what you want? In addition to the economy, time has become an issue for many consumers. Technology was supposed to save time but it seems that today we are busier than ever. Buying online is the answer for so many consumers that are pressed for time they never shop any other way. Even the groceries can be bought online and delivered to your home.

We are a society of convenience. When you can shop 24 hrs a day in the comfort of your home, online stores make a whole lot of sense. They also make sense for the large retailers because controlling inventory becomes easier and online sales allow them to continue to grow. Moving away from large brick and mortar stores reduces overhead and increases the bottom line. More and more retailers are taking the leap each year and it seems like they all now have a dotcom. In addition to large retailers the online store has opened up a whole new industry for individual entrepreneurs and hobbyists to market and sell their goods online.

So online sales will continue to grow and reporting of online sales will become more consistent when retailers realize that it will be online sales that keep them going. Year after year online sales increases by double digits and year after year more major retailers and entrepreneurs join the world of the dotcoms to sell their merchandise and services. This world may look a lot different in twenty years because the online store will become the rule rather than the exception. Households will do the majority of their shopping from home, advertisers will have to change their marketing direction and entrepreneurial pursuits will increase.

Whether you see this as a good thing or bad thing the change is coming and retailers, advertisers and marketing people need to be preparing for that change. Those who prepare will be successful and those who don’t prepare will disappear from the market place because online stores are here to stay. The growth will continue and there is no stooping it now.

Online Sales Are Taking The Lead

Online retail sales are increasing at a record pace. It won’t be long before they are outperforming store front sales. There are a number of reasons for the increase but one of the major reasons is the growth that we are seeing in the Asian market. From handbags and apparel to music downloaded from various sites Asia is one of the fastest growing markets in the world for web sales. The increase is possible because the technical infrastructure has expanded and the payment options which at one time were a major obstacle are more secure than ever. At present only about 17 percent of the population in Asia has internet access but that is expected to rise to 20 percent per year and in Japan the growth is predicted to be a staggering 40 percent per year. So you can see how the Asian market is helping to increase the total online retail sales. With China and India internet activity the entire internet access population is expected to increase by 4o percent each year.

Online retailers are seeing this as an opportunity to connect directly to the consumer. Even with the world wide economy trouble the consumers who have shopped online are still shopping but may be looking for bargains on second hand goods and using auctions sites more frequently. Online stores are appearing in record numbers as hobbyists and entrepreneurs look for outlets for their wares and new ways to make money in a down economy. In the U.S. stores like Macy’s and Best Buy are experiencing growth despite the downturn in the economy spurred on mostly by their online sales. Sales of everything from Mitsubishi Parts and Hyundai Parts to books, DVDs, music downloads and more on the rise in every segment around the world.

With increased sale in Asia, Europe, Australia and other areas of the world that are coming online retail online sales will explode in the next few years and account for a very large percentage of retail sales in their respective areas. As those sales increase you will see the storefronts slowly decrease in size and find more and more major retailers entering the online market each year.

The online market allows retailers to continue to grow, do specialty marketing to consumers and control inventories easier and more efficiently. The opportunities available with online sales are mind boggling. When we talk about potential growth we have to make sure we include markets around the world as well as web influenced purchase from every international segment. That will give us the true picture of the growth of a new marketplace that is just about to explode beyond belief. It’s something that you can feel when you surf the web or talk with people on a daily basis. More and more people are comfortable with shopping online for all kinds of merchandise. Innovation in payment processing that makes things more secure has increased consumer confidence and trust of transactions at online stores.
