Eek, I can't quite believe that glo is ten years old in October. From a discussion with my now hubby at the airport before jetting off on our hols (and pre kids) to talking through the idea with Charlotte whilst in the middle of doing a car boot sale on the outskirts of London, I cant quite believe how much our baby has grown.  Glo definitely feels like the 5th member of my family and so very proud of what we and all our clients and therapists have helped us achieve over the years.  Anyway less of the gush.......

To celebrate our 10 years of business, we will be writing a series of blogs focusing on all things 10.  I...

As more people struggle with the daily grind,  anxiety, depression and stress, mindfulness meditation is packing a mean punch, especially for a practise adapted from a 2,400-year-old Buddhist tradition.  

A favourite practise for the Hollywood Glitterati (Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz and Clint Eastwood) meditation involves sitting still, focusing on your breath, noticing thoughts, feelings, sensations and surroundings and when the attention drifts, bringing it back to the breath – and it is actually surprisingly challenging.

The Challenges and Benefits of Meditation

The first challenge, for most is actually finding the time to meditate , but if you MAKE the time then you are likely to reap the benefits.   You don't have to meditate for an hour a day,...

It's been a helluva year so far with one thing or another, and as you may remember from a previous blog around New Years, I use diet to help keep on top of things, alleviate stress and calm my system naturally. At times of stress, the temptation to eat feel good foods like sweets, crisps, and other sugary pick me ups which boost the feel good factor but once the sugar high drops, my mood and energy can crash lower than before.


The acid reducing detox diet by Dr. Joshi is great for helping us to relax. Reducing acid in the body means you sleep better, have smaller energy spikes/more sustained energy levels, feel more positive naturally, and feel...

Its officially Summer and whilst the countdown begins to holiday season and dare I say the possibility of the sun shining, we wanted to put together our best selection of health and beauty tips that will help you positively radiate throughout the Summer months.

Exfoliate
.  Exfoliate.  Exfoliate: The best way to get skin-ready for Summer is to (yes you've guessed it ) EXFOLIATE. Exfoliation gets rid of old, dead skin cells and is also the best way to achieve that summer glow. We recommend exfoliating every 10 days for the face, once or twice a week for the body and paying particular attention to those sandal and flip-flop wearing feet.  If you are planning for a day by...

Spring time juice cleanse

This is the time of year (clocks have changed and it’s lighter and brighter, days are warmer) I’m tempted to treat my body to a juice cleanse. Having ramped up my exercise regime (I rotate dynamic yoga one day with a run the next), I’ve heard it’s the perfect time to clean out and re-energise your body. It’s a bit like spring cleaning my house – there’s an urge to clear out the cupboards and de-clutter my home in Spring. So this year my environment outside will be mirrored by a cleaner and refreshed physical body.


Our bodies are so intelligent and do a great job of detoxing on their own, but these days in...
