2006 Spa Reviews by Julie Register
following are reviews of some of the spas Julie Register visited in 2006
Register spends the week before Christmas with her husband at Rancho
La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico. Instead of eating holiday cookies, they enjoyed
delicious, satisfying and healthy (mostly) vegetarian meals. Instead of rushing
around doing holiday shopping, they hiked and attended fitness classes, participated
in a traditional Mexican Posada, visited an organic garden, learned how to distill
essential oils, and much more.|

about her philanthropic accomplishments, Rancho La Puerta, the new cooking school,
the environment, processed foods, psychological calories, life priorities and

Brazilian spa with an Asian flavor in New York City - a facial with crushed pearls,

lymphatic drainage face and scalp massage; and a great combination deep tissue,
aromatherapy, and hot stone massage.

Register stays at the Wedgewood Hotel
and Spa in Vancouver. "I was ready for The Ultimate Cinnamon Enzyme Facial.
I had been looking forward to this for weeks. I've had facial treatments with
just about every kind of foodstuff imaginable - mango, papaya, avocado, cucumber,
yogurt - but never cinnamon. Actually, this is the first spa I've seen with a
cinnamon treatment. You may have guessed by now...I love cinnamon! However, just
because I like something doesn't mean it's good for my skin..."

You can clean your home, fruits, vegetables and meats with the same 'Aqueous Ozone' that spas and other companies use. Tersano's ‘Aqueous Ozone’ Cleaning Systemt is the world's most effective chemical-free cleaner. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ quickly oxidizes (kills) viruses and bacteria (including E.coli, Salmonella, MRSA, C-Difficil), mold, mildew and other contaminants on any item or surface - from toilets to bedspreads - before changing safely back into water and oxygen. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ is 3000 times faster and 50% more powerful than bleach and chlorine-based cleaners. It is 100% chemical free - no toxins, carcinogens or chemical residue - and safe for babies, pets and people with sensitive skin or those with strong reactions to normal cleaners. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ has long been used in water treatment, food sterilization and medical therapies for its remarkable anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. It sounds too good to be true, but the data show how effective the system works.
I'm a believer.
