Life is cooler with COOLA

Dear Friends, Meet COOLA! 

Healthy sun care, you’ll love to wear!

COOLA Suncare uses the most innovative, natural, organic, sustainable, and locally sourced ingredients available.  The formulas are eco-conscious and always use the freshest, most potent natural and (over 70%) organic ingredients.  By incorporating antioxidant-rich Plant Protection® (like Algae and Red Raspberry Seed Oil), their SPF naturally uses fewer traditional—and potentially irritating—sunscreen actives… Thisis amazing, because it means that they weed out all the stuff you don’t want on your skin or in the environment, like parabens, GMOs, and oxybenzone.

SUPER EXCITED to now have Coola Suncare available at Waterside Day Spa:

  • Spray Bottles of SPF 30/50 (Available in Unscented, Pina Colada, or Guava Mango)
  • Travel Size Spray Bottles of the delicious flavors above!
  • Organic Baby SPF 50 Sunscreen Stick
  • Sunless Tanning Dry Oil
  • Mineral Face SPF 30 Cucumber Matte Moisturizers
  • Tinted Organic BB Creams with SPF 30 (such a silky finish!)
  • And so much more we can’t wait to show you!

Mom, thanks for the ridiculously good looks!

Great-grandma Marjorie with three-month baby Cassidy

This past February 2017, I became a mother for the first time. It was about two weeks into my daughter’s life when it hit me like a ton a bricks…. WOW, parents really do A LOT for their children!  The amount of gratitude and appreciation I had for my parents suddenly grew immensely. The real definition of “unconditional love” made sense to me, and I found my heart overflowing with gratitude towards my parents, and theirs, and all of the generations that preceded my teeny-tiny daughter and I.

As a new parent, we begin to calculate this level of commitment that we just took on…  How many more diapers will we have to change in the next year? How many sleepless nights? Then it’s potty training! Messy dinners, eating rocks and way too much laundry… I found my mind racing thinking about all the sacrifices that I would now be making for someone else.

But guess what? Cliche indeed… I wouldn’t change a thing! Being a mother to a cheerful, beautiful, and oh-so love-able baby human is spectacular! My daughter is now 15 months and she’s talking! I accidentally dropped the f*bomb the other day and she responds with “uh-oh”! These are the moments that she puts me in check and reminds me to be the best possible human that I can be for her, like my parents were for me.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mama’s out there that have made the decision to officially love someone else more than they ever thought possible!! It’s messy, unselfish, and filled with daily struggles but the reward is so beautiful and unique.  Keep up the amazing work ladies!

Treat the mama’s you know this Mother’s Day!

Help Your Child Breathe Better

Halotherapy is an warmed and finely crushed dry salt particles in an airtight chamber. Since dry salt is antibacterial and super absorbent it actively kills bacteria and reduces the inflammation in the respiratory system and widens the airways for better breathing.

Studies in Europe and
Russia have confirmed that Halotherapy is safe and helps children effectively manage existing respiratory conditions, support better breathing and build a stronger immune system. Regular Halotherapy, 2-3 times a week, can help prevent the common coughs and colds, runny nose and earaches. In addition, regular Halotherapy also calms the nervous system and helps children to focus better in school as well as sleep better at night.

HALOTHERAPY HELPS CHILDREN TO BREATHE BETTER + FEEL BETTER

While there are many clinical and scientific studies conducted on Halotherapy throughout the world, the FDA has not evaluated the statements made throughout the industry. Halotherapy is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Why Massage is the Best Gift Ever

Deep Tissue, Hot Stones, and Reiki – oh my!

1. The Gift of Self Pampering

Massage makes the best gift because it provides a divine retreat from the hustle & bustle of daily life. Taking time to care for ones self and tend to our bodies is paramount!

Favorite Pampering Massages to Gift

  • Signature MassageA beautiful combination of all modalities and mixed pressures to truly customize a massage treatment. Warm towels and aromatherapy complete the experience.
  • Warm Stone Massage: Warmed Basalt and Pink Himalayan Salt stones are used as an extension of the therapists hand to release tension and promote relaxation. Special placement of the warmed stones on the body balance energy and activate our relaxation response.

2. The Gift of Muscle Ease

Massage makes the best holiday gift because it alleviates pain and stiffness by increasing circulation, improving flexibility, and releasing crinkles and tight spots from areas that hold tension.

Therapeutic Massages to Gift

  • Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy: Also known as Barefoot Massage, the Ashiatsu practitioner uses het body weight and foot compression, while supported by overhead wooden bars.
  • Deep Tissue Massage: Using firm pressure, myofascial work, trigger points, and specific healing techniques for each muscle group- this modality is ideal for athletes and those who tend to carry a lot of stress in their bodies.
  • Cupping: A specialized type of therapeutic (deep tissue) massage uses a light suction to stretch fascia and muscles and to promote circulation/blow flow to reduce inflammation.

3. The Gift of Happy Hormones

A great massage will raise your spirits! When deeply relaxed, the body releases a wealth of feel-good hormones, like oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine.  Once your body releases these hormones, they will continue to linger even after your massage is over.

Favorite Massages for Pure Bliss

  • ReikiAn energetic healing system that utilizes off-the-body hand placements to transmit healing energy from the practitioner to the recipient.
  • Reflexology: Stimulate every muscle, organ and bone in the body through pressure points in the feet… a deeply relaxing treatment that realigns the body as a whole.
  • Double Decadence: Show yourself a little love too, by treating both yourself and a loved one to a Couple’s Massage, avaiable in the same treatment room.

Give yourself the gift of a super-simple present purchase. Massage makes the best gift. Whether you Book Now or purchase a Gift Certificate at the last minute, your gift of massage will be the easiest gift you give this season—and the most appreciated!
