Lose weight without diet with coaching

Next we will explain how to lose weight without diet well and once and for all. With this method you will become a slim person forever and naturally.

If your goal is to lose weight, you need a method

If your goal is to lose weight, you should know that you need a method first.

Of course you will also need some instructions to eat properly and practice a little movement. But above all you will have to follow a method that allows you to be determined, not give in and not give up.

The Coaching method to lose weight without diet

Coaching offers exactly this, a method to lose weight effectively! Relying on a professional Coach to achieve your weight loss goal means being accompanied by an effective and safe ally. With your Life Coach by your side, you will learn that, with a precise method, you will be able to make possible what today seems impossible or difficult.

The Life Coach will help you, accompany you and encourage you to reach your goal, in the times and in the prescribed ways, without ever losing the proper motivation and without giving in to temptations.

What is the main difficulty in following a diet?

It is essentially lack of consistency, the temptation to give in to cravings, lack of determination, bad habits. Nutritional Coaching leads you to strengthen your self-determination, to be more resilient and to eliminate bad habits, allowing the formation of new and healthy life habits.

To lose weight you need self-determination …

You have started many diets in your life, but often, after a week, you have relapsed into old habits, and you started eating without rules. Who has not happened? Losing weight requires, above all, a lot of self-determination, without which no diet, no matter how valid, can lead to the desired goal.

By self-determination we understand the will to achieve a goal without distractions, avoiding giving in to temptations. It is you who must determine your actions and your choices, so that they lead you to achieve the desired result or weight loss.

Self-determination is that inner strength that makes you give up one thing today, to have a bigger one tomorrow.

In short, you can achieve your goals faster, giving up distractions and wasting time to go directly to your goal.

Those who improve their self-determination will be more successful in life, school, and work.

However, there are little tricks to aid self-determination. For example, before you give in to temptation, try to think about how you will feel afterward. Surely wrong, with frustration and a sense of guilt. And then ask yourself “Is it worth it?” If you can stop for a moment before giving in to the temptation of food and ask yourself these questions, chances are you can make a decision.

lose weight without diet

… .And resilience

Along with self-determination there is another valid ally, resilience. You’ve heard of this concept thousands of times, but have you ever wondered what it really is?

Simply put, resilience is the opposite of fragility. It is the strength to resist changes in life, to find a way to adapt to them and to keep motivation high.

In general, resilience applied to weight loss is that inner strength that you will have to train.

Going from a diet rich in carbohydrates, such as pasta, bread, sweets, carbonated and sugary drinks, takeout, alcoholic beverages to a diet rich in vegetables, protein, fruits and low in everything you liked is a really difficult change! !

Resilience will allow you to face it and bear its difficulties, every day more. Thanks to it, you will be able to resist deprivation with strength, you will be able to defend yourself from the urge to renounce everything and you will be able to savor the enormous power that will come from resistance.

Nutritional coaching is what you need to lose weight without diet

Learning resilience and self-determination is possible! With our Coaching you can acquire these skills, train them and make them your allies forever. You can use them not only to carry out your diet successfully, but also to face other challenges in your life or in your work.

depilation Barcelona

Everything you don’t have to do after waxing

Among the advice of what not to do after waxing, avoid too intense physical exercises, exfoliation a few hours later, lying on the pool lounger without sun protection. Our tips to avoid damage …

The response of our skin to a hair removal method is always very subjective. The quality of the skin and its preparation are essential for the success of a treatment and to prevent the undesirable, although minimal, effects that may arise. Folliculitis usually appears among the most frequent post-waxing problems. Folliculitis is caused by a bacterial infection. To avoid this, it is important to prepare for treatment. In fact, hydrated and exfoliated skin responds better to the waxing session. It also feels less pain, improves the result obtained and above all lasts longer. That is why it is advisable to perform a body peeling once every 10 days and in the 24 hours prior to waxing. Also, every day, the skin should be hydrated with a moisturizing body cream.

Cleaning the skin thoroughly after waxing is very important, as the follicular canals remain open and are, in fact, more vulnerable to infection.

What to do after waxing

Waxing is one of the most effective methods of removing hair. In fact the skin remains smooth for a long time. In addition, the hair grows back noticeably weaker than when it is removed with a machine, cream or other methods.

To avoid redness, discomfort and in some cases irritations and infections, it is necessary to take care of the skin even after waxing, using oil and specific cleansing treatments to give relief to the depilated area. In the shop of our hair removal center in Barcelona you can find a wide range of products for sensitive skin.

post wax tips

Recommended oils for after waxing

After waxing, it is important to hydrate the areas of the body that have been waxed to avoid redness, irritation and reduce the development of ingrown hairs. For this reason, there are many creams on the market. However, some essential oils, being of natural origin, are suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.

To hydrate the skin of the legs

After waxing, you can use a mixture of sweet almond oil with a few drops of geranium essential oil and peppermint essential oil. Sweet almond oil hydrates the skin and geranium oil helps slow hair growth, while peppermint oil will give a pleasant sensation of freshness.

For the most delicate areas, such as the groin

We recommend a mixture of calendula oil with a few drops of lavender essential oil. On the one hand, calendula oil has soothing, disinfectant and anti-inflammatory properties. On the other hand, lavender oil helps reduce any irritation.

Menthol, aloe, chamomile and argan are also used, which will help soften the depilated area.

A good cleaning is important to ensure the correct success of the hair removal and the well-being of the skin.

Wash the area with warm water, detergents as neutral as possible. If it is necessary to apply, after washing, apply antiseptic and antibacterial creams. Those that are based on tea tree or lavender will be perfect. Tea tree oil in particular is a natural antiseptic, capable of soothing the skin and providing a kind of protective barrier against bacteria.

But what can be done to keep the depilated area in good condition after professional waxing, in addition to applying essential oils and creams?

After waxing, it is advisable to pay attention to the treated areas, to avoid discomfort, redness or even infections.

First of all, avoid sources of heat. For example, do not take too hot showers and strong jets of water on the shaved part. For the same reason, it would be better not to expose yourself to sunlight, at least for the next 24 hours, also avoiding saunas, Jacuzzi and Turkish baths. Even chlorinated substances used to disinfect swimming pools can aggravate sensitivity.

In fact, this type of situation increases the sensitivity of the skin, the pores become more dilated and there is a risk of redness and infections.

Avoid overly aggressive deodorants (it would be advisable to avoid them completely for at least the first day after waxing). Another important post-waxing precaution is to avoid applying any other scented product to the affected areas as its aggressive formulation can cause itching and burning.

tips after waxing

How to avoid irritation?

Redness and irritation can occur in the presence of sweat or friction: this is why it is important not to wear clothing that is too tight and to choose cotton and not synthetic clothing. All these precautions will help to pass air in the depilated part avoiding the proliferation of bacteria.

If redness and irritation develop after waxing, it may be helpful to reduce friction from clothing to treated areas. For example, avoid tight clothing and wear pure cotton underwear, to allow proper skin perspiration. Loose-fitting clothing also has the advantage of limiting the amount of sweat after waxing, which would be fertile ground for germ growth and which could also lead to rashes, irritation, redness and pimples. Sweating in the areas subjected to waxing should be avoided at all costs

A few days after waxing, it is advisable to resume gentle exfoliation of the skin several times a week, to remove the superficial layers of dead cells. This reduces the chance of ingrown hairs developing and removes dead cells. Making sure to nourish the skin is also essential when integrating the application of a moisturizer into your daily routine.

What is the best massage for me? We help you discover it

If you are thinking of indulging yourself with a massage session and you are particularly curious to discover the innumerable benefits that you can obtain, we provide you with the main benefits of the most requested massages and above all we help you discover which is the best massage for you.

Today there are an infinity of types of treatments, and here the drama begins: Which are the most popular? What type of massage suits my needs?

Read on and discover the most requested massages and how a simple massage can be of great benefit to your body and mind.

The benefits of massage

The benefits of a massage for the body and mind are many and depend on the type that is performed. There are massages that are especially effective in reducing stress and tension, while others improve the immune system or the functioning of a specific organ.

Did you know that there are types of massages that improve the immune system or the functioning of a specific organ?

Below we show the main massages and their benefits.

Stressed or uptight?

Relaxing massage

Lomi Lomi

Neurosedative

Relaxation is one of the main effects of manipulations. When we put ourselves in the hands of a professional masseuse we relax while releasing all the muscular tension accumulated during the day, thus reducing daily stress. This type of muscle relaxation acts on the joints and bones, as in this way they become elastic and with greater agility in movement.

Thanks to all this, the mind feels much freer, less blocked and well prepared to face the day. The body produces endorphins naturally, this substance helps fight depression, anxiety and pain.

Digestive problems

Since massage generally reduces the level of stress and anxiety, this allows the muscles of the diaphragm to relax and greatly improves our respiratory system. This allows for greater oxygenation of the blood and improves the cardiovascular system.

Increased blood flow also improves the digestive system and reduces the risk of gastritis. Therefore, an organ such as the intestine also benefits, since good friction stimulates peristalsis and reduces cases of chronic constipation.

Dehydrated skin

A good massage stimulates the release of dead cells from the connective system and stimulates the pores of the sebaceous glands. In this way, the skin is more luminous and able to better absorb all the oils and lotions used for massage.

A natural medicine for the lymphatic system: draining massage

Body massages have an immediate effect for the stimulation of body fluids, helping the kidneys to eliminate and expel body fluids. Especially thanks to the draining massage the toxins accumulated in our body are eliminated due to the stagnation of the lymphatic system.

Not just cellulite: Anti-cellulite massage

The massages also act against the annoying imperfections of cellulite, helping to reduce it and fight it since our body increases blood circulation.

Greater nutrition of our tissues and increases capillary dilation, lowering blood pressure.

An anti-cellulite massage is also very effective and beneficial for our cardiovascular system, since it not only increases the capacity of the blood in our body, but also improves its quality. Blood flow increases but the pressure on the blood vessels decreases, making our heart stronger.

In our massage center in Barcelona we also offer a special treatment to restore lightness to tired legs.

Pains

Try the Tui-Na massage

The Tui Na massage favors the flow of vital energy within the meridians present in the individual’s body. In fact, according to the philosophy behind this massage, the stagnation of vital energy and / or alterations in its flow would be responsible for the appearance of disorders and pathologies in the person.

Choose this treatment to counteract or alleviate painful symptoms of a different nature:

  • Muscle and / or joint pain of various types: cervical, back, head, sciatica
  • Disorders due to alterations (generally not pathological) of the blood and lymphatic circulation;
  • Menstrual disturbances;
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Stress and non-pathological anxiety states;
  • Irritability and mood swings.

Muscle pains

Deep Tissue

Decontracting Massage

This massage combines a series of techniques to access the deepest layers of muscle tissue.

Myotensive headaches, neck pain, jaw pain, back pain, or insomnia.

The head massage is the most indicated massage.

You do sports? This is the best massage for you

Sports massage is done before sports to warm up and prepare the muscles, or after sports to relax the muscles. This massage is also recommended for the rehabilitation of injuries, improving sports performance, flexibility and muscle balance.

However, you don’t have to be an athlete to be able to perform this type of massage. Sports massage is also used for active people who frequently participate in sports activities. The objective of this type of massage is not to relax but to prevent and treat injuries.

Hot Stone Massage

Did you know that there are massages that treat any health problems? How to achieve total well-being

Reflexology

Reflexology is a type of treatment that aims to massage the feet with a much higher purpose than the simple act itself.

The breech reflexology treatment consists of applying a certain pressure to certain points of the foot, each of which represents a direct correspondence with an organ and system of the body.

Reflexology is a very relaxing massage, especially for people who spend most of the day on their feet, causing ongoing fatigue and pain. In addition, the purpose of this type of massage is to alleviate the problem related to the health of our body.

Shiatsu

For this type of massage, a technique of pressure with the fingers is used in certain areas through a sequence of rhythm in the acupuncture meridians. Each point should hold the pulse for 2 to 8 seconds.

It improves the flow of energy and helps the body to regain the proper psychophysical balance.

People who undergo this type of treatment for the first time say that it is a very relaxing massage despite the constant pressure and that it does not leave any type of back pain. This is precisely why this massage is becoming, once again, the most requested and popular massage performed by professional masseurs.

Craniosacral Massage

Craniosacral therapy consists of gentle manipulations of the cranial bones, seen as a means of interacting with the person’s health and the central and peripheral nervous system. According to Dr. Sutherland, with this method it is possible to influence the hormonal system, treating the following disorders:

  • gynecological functions, such as the painful cycle
  • nervous system, such as certain types of headache, neuralgia, sleep disturbances, and visual disturbances such as strabismus
  • functional occlusion or chewing disorders such as bruxism or crossbite, sinusitis, some scoliosis originating in the skull
  • functional disorders of the child such as birth trauma, alterations in the shape of the skull or the typical “colic” gas or ear pain

Chiromassage

Chiromassage is a manual technique that aims to restore physical, mental and energetic well-being. The objective is to evaluate and restore the structural, functional and postural integrity of the body, eliminating restrictions and normalizing dysfunctions.

The objective is to reach an optimal point of physical-psychological efficiency by reducing the stress factors of the body, such as muscle contractions, spasms and tension in the soft tissues.

Reiki

More than a real massage, reiki is a kind of discipline that aims to cure ailments of any kind by transferring energy from the practitioner’s hands to the individual who undergoes this practice.

Holistic Massage

It is a technique that involves not only the body, but also the spirit, the emotions and the energies of the whole body. It can perform a decongestant or stimulating function. In the first case, toxins are eliminated, purifying the body, in the second the objective is to tone the muscles.

Price

Introductory course to Lymphatic Drainage according to the original Vodder method

The Vodder method of Manual Lymphatic Drainage was born around the 1930s, from a brilliant intuition of Emil Vodder. This Danish physiotherapist has devoted most of his life to studying the lymphatic system to perfect his technique and demonstrate its scientific validity.
His method is today officially recognized by important Scientific Societies of Phlebolinfology. It is also indicated as the therapy of choice (Golden Standard) in the physiotherapeutic approach of some specific pathologies of the lymphatic system.

The Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage is clearly distinguished by the specific manual skill on the superficial tissues (skin and subcutis).

The various manual skills, exercised with one or two hands, in the different body areas, are performed in proximal-distal sequences respecting the course of the cutaneous and subcutaneous or better epifascial flows in the direction of the lymph node stations of a specific lymphatic zone.

The action of LDM stimulates an increase in lymphangiomotricity. It is a drainage of the interstitium that favors the movement of fluids, proteins and immune cells and the elimination of catabolites and various wastes for the benefit of tissue circulation.

The technique according to Dr. Vodder is performed with harmonic, slow and rhythmic movements. Thus the physiological parameters of lymphatic flow are respected without causing “spasms of the lymphatic vessels”. It also favors other effects, scientifically proven, such as sympatholytic and analgesic.
An effect on the immune system is also hypothesized with the consequent increase in the body’s defenses.

Treatments for migraine

Treatments for migraine: what is the massage and useful essential oils

In this article we show you a selection of migraine treatments: manual therapies and aromatherapy that relieve headaches and relax you.

Cranial sacral massage for migraine

Headache is a painful condition that affects most people at least once in their life. It is a pain located in the temples, but variable in intensity and position. Some people may experience a more severe and debilitating form of headache: migraine. According to the International Headache Society (IHS), you get migraines if:
  • The crisis lasts between 4 and 72 hours.
  • The pain is aggravated by light and noise.
In addition, according to the IHS, at least 2 of the following conditions must exist regarding pain:
  • Pain located on one side of the head
  • Throbbing
  • Debilitating to the point of preventing the normal course of daily actions.The pain is aggravated by physical exertion (getting up, climbing stairs, bending over, etc.) The causes of headaches can be multiple: overexertion, incorrect nutrition, disorders of the autonomic nervous system, etc. One of the main regulators of the parasympathetic system is the vagus nerve that begins in the head (brainstem) and goes to innervate many organs, including the heart, lungs, esophagus, stomach and part of the intestine. Therefore, if there is a digestive problem, a slow and lazy intestine, an emotional problem, an anger, the vagus nerve becomes irritated and this irritation reaches its root, triggering a headache with possible nausea and dizziness. To prevent headaches, it would be necessary to slow down the fast pace of our life. On the one hand, find calm and stillness that allow the nervous system to be rebalanced. On the other hand, avoid foods rich in fats and sugars, reduce caffeine, alcohol, smoking and especially mood swings such as anger and severe stress.

How cranial sacral massage can help us among the best treatments for migraine

The Cranial Sacral massage is a holistic massage technique that involves a very light touch of the operator on the cranial bones and the spine, in search of a “contact” with the cranial sacral rhythm.
Intervening in the cranial-sacral movement, or in the rhythmic fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid, means undertaking a process that involves the entire organism, promoting well-being.

Sacral Skull Massage: the solution to headaches!

Cranial-Sacral massage can bring multiple benefits; From a simple anti-stress treatment, you can rebalance posture, muscles, gastrointestinal system and improve breathing. Therefore, it has proven effective in many cases in treating sciatica, back pain, birth trauma, whiplash, migraines, headaches, scoliosis, dizziness, and jaw joint problems. It is basically a type of manipulation that relieves compression of the bones of the head, the sacrum (a triangular bone in the lower back) and the spine. It is not invasive at all, as it is practiced by applying light pressure to the head, neck, and back to relieve stress and pain caused by compression. As a result, it can help treat a wide range of ailments. Cranial sacral therapy is based on the principle that by gently manipulating the bones of the skull, spine and pelvis, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system, that is, the fluid that surrounds the brain, can be normalized. and the spinal cord. This technique is able to remove the “blockages” caused by various “traumas” of the normal flow, improving the body’s ability to heal from pain and various dysfunctions. In fact, the cranial sacral system is connected to the musculoskeletal system through the vascular system and the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Trauma, wherever it occurs in the body, can actually affect this system, limiting normal movements and inhibiting the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. The normal “organ rhythm” is believed to be disrupted by all types of trauma, including:
  • during the birth
  • childhood injuries
  • repetitive motion injuries
  • car accidents
  • fall accidents
  • injury
  • stressful events
tratamientos para la migraña: aceites esenciales

Treatments for migraine: Essential oils with prodigious healing properties of aromatic officinal plants.

For headaches, headaches and migraines, there are some essences that have proven to be particularly effective: Peppermint essential oil: its balsamic properties make it very useful to counteract vasoconstriction, relax muscle tension and relieve headaches. Peppermint essential oil is also used to treat other ailments. For example insomnia, breathing problems, indigestion, depression, swollen joints and skin disorders. Lavender essential oil: In aromatherapy, lavender essence is used as a natural anti-inflammatory. Therefore it is recommended to relieve pain related to migraines thanks to its ability to dilate blood vessels. Lavender essential oil is also useful as prevention because its aroma helps reduce stress and regulate sleep, which are two of the main causes of migraines. Also, the essence of these beautiful flowers is often used as an antimicrobial, curative, and sedative. Rosemary Essential Oil: This essence is traditionally known to treat headaches and migraines due to its powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. In addition, this essence also has a calming effect on the body and helps to counteract stress and insomnia. You can add a drop or two of rosemary oil to tea or other drink; Also, in combination with essential oil of peppermint, a few drops are diluted inside the coconut oil, to massage the temples with slow circular movements. Other essential oils can also be included as part of migraine treatments, among these we remember: eucalyptus chamomile basil rose
Acupuncture for anxiety Barcelona

Acupuncture for anxiety

En este artículo hablamos de la eficacia de la acupuntura para la ansiedad.

De hecho las agujas de acupuntura actúan en puntos del cuerpo que a través del sistema nervioso se conectan a áreas del cerebro responsables de la producción de endorfinas.  

La resonancia magnética funcional ha permitido comprender que a través de la acupuntura el cerebro produce endorfinas. En práctica se trata de ir a modificar las áreas cerebrales involucradas en el manejo de la ansiedad y el miedo, es decir, la amígdala.

Esta estructura cerebral se comporta como una alarma muy sensible, “disparándose” de forma completamente inconsciente y desencadenando una serie de cambios físicos y mentales incluso antes de que nos demos cuenta.

Síntomas de ansiedad y miedo

Los síntomas son diferentes: tensión muscular, latidos cardíacos, respiración acelerada, sudoración. Estos síntomas son activados por la amígdala en caso de ansiedad y miedo.

Cuando, por el contrario, la amenaza es concreta, las experiencias mentales van desde el miedo al pánico en toda regla.

En estados de ansiedad y pánico siempre se produce la activación del circuito defensivo de supervivencia. Este circuito cerebral puede ser activado por amenazas reales provenientes de los órganos de los sentidos (vista, oído …). Cuando llega la alarma, se activa la amigdala que en respuesta provoca que se creen en la persona todos los síntomas antes mencionados.

El condicionamiento cada vez más frecuente y consolidado crea en la persona una excesiva atención a las señales de peligro,. En general se puede experimentar miedo a la novedad, percepción anormal de peligros internos, incapacidad para discriminar peligro real de uno potencial, hipervigilancia, hiperactividad.

¿Cómo funciona la acupuntura para la ansiedad?

La acupuntura actúa sobre esos circuitos cerebrales defensivos de supervivencia que están conectados a la amígdala. Reduciendo su activación, trata todos los síntomas que en muchos pacientes son inmanejables si no con adicción a las drogas.

Por lo tanto, la acupuntura es un remedio natural e indoloro para la ansiedad y el pánico.

acupuntura para la ansiedad

Ansiedad y acupuntura: la explicación también proviene de la medicina china.

La respuesta sobre la eficacia efectiva de la acupuntura para la ansiedad se puede encontrar en la medicina china. Según la medicina china un sentimiento está conectado a cada órgano. Este último, si se exaspera, puede conducir al vaciamiento energético del propio órgano, y consecuentemente a su enfermedad fisiológica. La manifestación subjetiva del déficit energético crea perturbaciones en la esfera emocional.

El término “ansiedad” a menudo se utiliza incorrectamente, refiriéndose a condiciones generales de aprensión, nerviosismo y estrés, muy comunes en la vida cotidiana. A veces, estos problemas resultan en ataques de pánico que el individuo no maneja correctamente.

La acupuntura actúa sobre los meridianos correspondientes al órgano afectado por el desequilibrio energético. El meridiano se utiliza como herramienta terapéutica aferente al órgano enfermo para resolver el bloqueo de emociones que afecta a este último. Por eso, en la medicina tradicional china, a diferencia de otras dolencias, la ansiedad y la depresión no son enfermedades de los meridianos, sino patologías de órganos.

El trastorno de ansiedad o el ataque de pánico pueden ocurrir en cualquier momento de la vida. A menudo en períodos de transición particularmente críticos o cuando se enfrenta a decisiones difíciles. Son principalmente mujeres, niños y ancianos quienes la padecen. Habitualmente el tratamiento de la medicina moderna consiste en la farmacoterapia con ansiolíticos que resuelven temporalmente el problema sin investigar las causas que generan ansiedad. Estas drogas conducen con mayor frecuencia a la adicción y una de las muchas razones por las que las personas recurren al mundo de la acupuntura es que no son adictas a las drogas.
