MAY 2017 – Delray Beach, Fla. – Just over three years ago, Ross Bloom and Keith Foulis, co-founders of the biostation, began offering functional medical services to patients in Delray Beach, Florida. They were working out of a small room with Dr. Martin G. Bloom, a 30-year practicing cardiologist, who also has extensive training in anti-aging and functional medicine. Today, the biostation is poised to expand their impact through franchising and by establishing partnerships with member-based spas and clubs.
The biostation’s healthy-aging offerings are geared primarily for anyone not feeling optimal, and, as the co-founders say, can be especially beneficial to the aging baby boomer population. In 2030, the baby boomer generation is projected to be 72-million people representing nearly 20 percent of the total U.S. population*. “With this group experiencing more health challenges than previous aging segments, it is important that medical practices provide products and services that focus on the prevention of age-related diseases,” says Ross Bloom, biostation CEO and co-founder.
Bloom further explains how he and the biostation team approach health differently, “We recommend treatments that first attempt to address the root cause of the patient’s issues or concerns, such as vitamin deficiencies, hormone imbalances, carrying too much weight and lifestyle choices. We address these concerns with pharmaceutical-grade supplements, bioidentical hormone therapy and nutritional counseling to help support a person back to a path of optimal wellness.”

www.sciencetimes.com – People always search for a way to relax after the stressful time and hot stone massage therapy is one such way. This massage therapy has some good benefits.
There are a number of different techniques that a massage therapist can apply to relax the long and skeletal muscles of the body. Various movements like the tapping, circular motions, long strokes and others. But, apart from these, one very beneficial therapy is the hot stone massage therapy.
The massage therapist used hot stones and the regular massage techniques at the time of the hot stone massage therapy. During this massage, the therapist first places the stones in the hot water in order to warm them up. Then these stones are placed onto particular areas of the body, like the feet, the stomach, the hands, the face and the back.
The stones used in the hot stone massage therapy are mainly made of basalt rock. These flat, smooth stones can retain heat for a longer time. According to the Medical News Today, some therapists hold them in the hands and apply them to massage with. This process helps to treat the muscles deeply without using extra pressure and it provides more relaxation.

Great Barrington’s largest employer: Jane Iredale, Cosmetic Entrepreneur
By Christine Bates | firstname.lastname@example.org
It was a surprise to me that the creator of my favorite brand of mineral makeup was Great Barrington’s largest private employer and also a driving force in the town’s economic development.
How would you describe your business?
We are a comprehensive line of makeup developed with quality minerals and skin care ingredients that are good for the skin. They blur the line between skin care and makeup. All of the jane iredale products adhere to the highest standard of integrity. Each product is subjected to rigorous sensitivity and safety tests to ensure it is as good for the skin as it is beautiful to wear. Our mission statement contains these words, “We pledge to provide a product line that has the utmost integrity and the ability to enhance the lives of women through its effectiveness, simplicity and beauty.”
Rather than center our business in traditional counter sales or department stores, we work largely through aesthetic industry professionals. Our makeup is a top choice of skin care professionals and is recommended by plastic surgeons and dermatologists worldwide. Our core distribution is through fine spas and salons, resorts, apothecaries, and medical offices.
The aesthetic industry is different from general cosmetics in the sense that products are considered tools in order to help the client achieve results. It isn’t enough to look pretty, they have to perform as well.
We think of ourselves as a wellness company and a large part of that is promoting the health of the skin. The skin is our window into the body and the spirit. So, every product I develop is designed as a true extension of skin care. I have always had one goal in mind – to enhance the lives of women. So products and ingredients are scrutinized to make sure they serve a purpose and contribute to beauty and wellness.
One of the latest beauty trends on the market is red light therapy, and I hope it sticks around forever.
Last winter I was diagnosed with dermatitis, and was also told to restrict myself to very few products on my skin (natural and traditional). Everything that my skin came in contact with, it seemed, caused a reaction.
One thing I noticed was that the warm, summer months seemed to naturally heal my skin. But once the weather got colder, my dermatitis started to flare up again. I kept hearing from others with this condition that traditional tanning (in moderation) works wonders. The thought of exposure to harmful UV rays scared me until I stumbled across the benefits of red light therapy and decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did!
