Salvere Blog: A Peek at Zero Balancing

zero balancingIn our first in depth look at a non-traditional healing treatment option, we will examine Zero Balancing. So when I first heard “Zero Balancing”, I thought so many different things about what it entailed and what exactly it accomplished. Taken directly from the national website, “Zero Balancing is a powerful body-mind therapy that uses skilled touch to address the relationship between energy and structures of the body.”
Now that we cleared that up!! To better understand, lets start with a better understanding of what exactly these modalities such as Zero Balancing and Acupuncture work on when they say “energy”. We hear energy and might think of having none after a long day at work or a kid who goes and goes, without seeming to rest, or energy when we use power.
Well, the energy they refer to, often called Chi, flows throughout the body to organs and throughout systems in the body giving us life. In a very small nutshell, when we experience pain, illness or such, it indicates a blockage in this energy flow. Zero Balancing addresses this through gentle touch around the bones, joints and soft tissue to bring things back into balance.
To understand more about this technique and learn if it could be something to help you relieve pain, decrease stress or improve your well being, check out the Zero Balancing Health Association website. I encourage you to investigate various techniques to see how you feel afterwards. Often it takes several meetings to really notice the benefits and changes to your body. Let us know if you tried it in the past or try it after this article!

Salvere Blog: The Calorie Conundrum

September 23, 2015

Calorie — What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word calorie??  Write it down before you read on!

calorie creatures calories and personAccording to Merriam Webster, a calorie is “the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water one degree Celsius” and “a unit equivalent to the large calorie expressing heat-producing or energy-producing value in food when oxidized in the body”. 

How did you define it??

So often the discussion surrounding calories comes in the form of restriction or something weight loss oriented. In those conversations, we forget about what a calorie really measures.  A measurement of energy!!!  Imagine this — Say for instance, in order to drive 250 miles in your car, you need 10 gallons of gas.  There’s no gas station on the way.  Would you decide to drive that 250 miles by putting only 7.5 gallons in your tank instead??  Sounds kinda crazy doesn’t it?

Ever feel low energy in the afternoon or evening? Ever “run out of energy” during your workout? While several things come into play here, it could have something to do with your “fuel” intake! Think of your metabolism just like you do your car engine — All of us use energy all day long, even when we are sitting around doing nothing. Your car will not make it 250 miles on less fuel why would your body be able to survive on insufficient fuel??
