Organic Oil Massage W

hen giving or receiving a massage it is important to use a product that is not too greasy. You want to ensure that the skin isn’t going to leave the recipient feeling like they rolled around in a vat of butter. Any oil you put onto the skin will be absorbed into the tissue which then goes into the blood stream. When chemicals are used to grow the ingredients, they are then transferred into the extracted oil. What goes onto your body is just as important as what you put into it. By using organic massage oils you are not only preventing harmful chemicals from entering the body, but you are introducing materials that are beneficial to you. Many organic products contain vitamins such as Vitamins A, D, and E as well as minerals. All of these are important ingredients to your health. Sweet almond oil is one of the best oils to use in massage. It has many properties that are highly beneficial to the skin. It is rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and E. It is also a great moisturizer and contains healing properties. Jojoba oil is great natural oil that also has a long shelf life. It is a great choice to those who have nut allergies or are prone to acne. It is similar to the natural oils in the skin. Using organic products is not only beneficial to you, but the environment as well. For a product to be considered organic, it also means that the production of the product reduces the impact on the planet. Some products have organic ingredients but are not considered organic because the company doesn’t reduce the negative impact on the Earth during production of the material.

Reversing the Effects of Aging with Chelation Therapy

C

helation therapy is the process of removing undesirable ionic material from the body by the use of compounds taken intravenously or orally to bind metals present in toxic concentrations so they can be excreted from the body. It can benefit people with coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, heavy smokers and alcoholics, and those with a high density of toxins in the body. HOW CHELATION WORKS Calcium passes through the damaged cell walls into the cells. If calcium gets deposited in arterial walls, it inhibits the enzyme activity which affects the production of energy. The cells become energy

starved and become acidic as a result. This can lead to premature aging, unbalanced calcium/ magnesium ratios, free radical activity, local toxicity, oxygen deficit, nutritional imbalance, etc. Chelation will help the cells to repair themselves, the production of energy increases and your body becomes healthier. REVERSING THE EFFECTS OF AGING The process of aging is what doctors call calcinosis, meaning calcium is pulled from the bones and deposited into soft tissue, settling in your arteries, joints and skin, causing arthritis and the pale, hard, wrinkled look of aging.

OTHER BENEFITS Other improvements are in the reduction of fatigue, neurological, cardiovascular symptoms, respiratory, gastrointestinal, genital and urinary symptoms.

Horoscope Aries (March. 19 – April. 19) Your state of mind will depend on the way you relate to the others. As long as they stand by you and like you, you’ll feel great. Physically, you seem to be more exposed to toxins, infections and contaminations. Moreover, it’s high time you changed something about your lifestyle and got rid of bad habits.

Libra (Oct. 22 – Sep. 23 You’re in for several risky weeks that must be taken seriously. Listen to your body and don’t ignore any symptom, get a diagnosis and treatment for each! E.g. a medical check –up at Bangkok Hospital Pattaya. If you suffer from any ailment, follow your medical prescriptions exactly! Don’t perform any experiments, don’t go on tough or untested diets or treatments (including cosmetic). Spare your heart, eyes, spine, nervous and respiratory systems.

Taurus (Apr. 20 – May. 20 This time of the year will be a rather stressful and tiring period. Your immunity will not be at its peak and your mood will be quite unsettled. Take care of yourself! Rest more, try to relax psychically and avoid excesses! A massage and beach walk with help!

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) It is a good time to make effort to improve your health, diet and life hygiene, and also to review and improve the way you look or dress. You may face some problems with your kidneys, ovaries, blood circulation (varix) or glycemia. Good balanced diet, exercise and relaxation will help you to regain your health and strength.

Gemini (May. 21 – June. 21) Currently you are enjoying vitality and a lot of dynamism. Beware, thought, because irritation, haste and imprudence still represent a danger! There will be a small risk of accidents, but also of inflection or inflammation. Be cautious and listen to your body!

Cancer (June 22 – July.22) As regards your physical shape there’s nothing in particular to complain about. The situation will much stay the same as it has been lately. But the intellectual and psychic stress will intensify so you’d better do something to strengthen your nervous system, Rest, take Magnesium supplements and avoid stimulants!

Leo (July. 23 – Aug. 22) Tension and stress will persist. Physically, a certain unwinding will install in the second half of this period. Psychically, you’ll find it difficult to relax and you might even be haunted by all kinds of fears, anxieties and phobias, real or imaginary. You could do with some traveling, meeting foreign people and enriching your culture. Don’t forget to visit a spa or to dine out!

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22) Exhaustion, over solicitation, tension! You need to spare yourself and take care of yourself, because you’ll have some difficult weeks ahead that will test the resistance of your body and nerves. During this period you’ll be vulnerable to infections and poisonings; and haste and carelessness can mean accidents. 20

Sagittarius (Nov. 20 – Dec. 21) Tension and stress. Even if you’re under the impression that there are no problems, inner tension exists, and it can lead to disputes, accidents, acute ailments or crises. Poorly taken-care-of-difficulties could relapse. Pay attention to the possible complications generated by a lifestyle rich in excesses! Release your stress with a spa treatment. Capricorn (Dec.22 – Jan. 19) You may feel a state of tension and dissatisfaction, a fall in your tonus and optimism. Currently you are in a most delicate period of time and it should send some signals about what you have to change in your lifestyle to be in shape. Treat yourself well take good friends to a fine dining restaurant. Aquarius (Jan.20 – Feb. 18) At this period you are vulnerable to infections, poisonings and accidents due to haste and carelessness. That’s why you should take care and be careful! There’s no problem regarding vitality and energy (you’ll have three times your need), but there’s a problem related to imprudence, excesses and careless actions. Pisces (Feb. 19 – March. 20) Until the end of spring stay away from gossip and intrigues that effect your good mood, but also from the wastes that could “pollute” your body (infections, toxins, alcohol etc.) In Sep you’ll benefit from more vitality, but there will be more physical risks (burns, cuts, falls, and various accidents). Beware!

Men’s jewelry, earrings, finger rings, cufflinks, bracelets and studs have become fashionable these days. However, overdoing them may not give you a great look. Personal Grooming

One of the other prominent fashion tips for men is personal hygiene. Even if you are well dressed, an unkempt beard or hairstyle can spoil your look. Properly trimmed beard or a shaved face are always better. Shoes Make the Man

In your wardrobe collection, a nice pair of clean or polished shoes is always a must. And they do get noticed by women as your shoes reflect your personal habits.

M

ale as well as female, dressing well and looking good are always advantageous for any person in today’s fast-moving world. Be wary of Brand Names If purchasing branded items, do check if they really suit you and you are not just buying them because they are so much in “trend” or “style”. Do they look good on you? Size Matters The size of T-shirts, shirts and other fashion clothing you wear must be according to your fitting. Skinny and lean men must wear comfortable clothing, not too large than their size as that will make them disappear in their own dress! Fat men, on the other hand, must not wear very tight clothes! Simplicity is Style Your wardrobe collection must not be something that appears overdone. Your wardrobe collection may include watches and wallets as well as shirts and trousers What you have to do is use all these fashion items to give you an imposing appearance. Sometimes the simpler the better!

RELAX Announce

Their Prestigeous Top Ten Pattaya 2011 Restaurant Awards

Mick

and I have been restaurant reviewers in Pattaya for almost a decade and during that time we have written about hundreds of establishments; some have evaporated into the annals of gastro-history but many remain steadfastly surviving the vagaries of the economic climate and the caprices of food fashions. During this time we have been patronised, poisoned, pampered and abused (by email) all in the course of our duties but we still love the job. We have always loved to eat and cook and have always considered ourselves “foodies”. My background is advertising and journalism while Mick is a recognised author of a myriad of music books and a professional studio musician. We both love to eat plus I love to write and Mick loves to take the photographs accurately recording the dishes that we are served. We want people to share our enthusiasm for food and to spread the gastro-word. Now that we live in S.E. Asia our gamut of gastronomy is huge. Restaurants are a tricky business – they can debut with a splash but unless they resonate with what the paying customers want, the initial impact will be short term. We are always asked, “what makes a good restaurant?” and we always answer, “consistency”. If you enjoy a splendid dinner at your favourite restaurant and return to repeat the experience - the restaurant has to duplicate it down to the last French fry or else you will be disappointed and in all probability not return. For most people service also accounts for half the reason for repeat visits. Timing, demeanor and presentation, the three holy trinities to perfect service, are a tough feat but diners demand the best and the best restaurants supply it aplenty on a daily basis. This brings us neatly to the reason for this article: “The Relax Awards for Pattaya’s Top Ten Restaurants”. In further issues Relax magazine will be delighted to present to their readers in depth reviews of the pinnacle of Pattaya’s best tables. Extremely high standards prevail these days and Relax would like to showcase these gastronomic citadels, not only to inform its readers about Pattaya’s epicurean destinations but also to commend the restaurant and present it with a commemorative certificate. The first of our top table reviews will be the much-loved Mata Hari. This bastion of good eating has been a firm favourite on the Pattaya culinary scene since 1996. The awards that have been lavished upon

Mata Hari are legion: the annual Award of Business Excellence of the Netherlands/Thai and the Belgian/Luxumbourg/Thai Commerce, a member of the Chaine des Rotisseurs (Pattaya Balli for 5 years) and annually voted by Thailand Tatler readers as one of the best restaurants in Pattaya and included in its “Thailand Best Restaurants” guide. The footfall over the years at Mata Hari has been enormous and it is always mentioned when people in Pattaya talk of their favourite restaurant. Its sire and guiding light is Louis Noll who meets and greets with élan and panache while wife Jackie rules her kitchen dominion with deftness and dexterity. Mata Hari manages to combine the attributes of fine dining with fun dining; not an easy feat but one that this restaurant seamlessly achieves. Signature dishes include rock lobster tails and snow peas in vermouth cream sauce, slow cooked lamb shank and sticky date pudding with honey ice cream and caramel sauce. Read a detailed review of Mata Hari Restaurant in the next issue of Relax.

The

next top table restaurant to be reviewed will be the inimitable Gian’s in Jomtien. Italian food fans can visit from noon. It provides the perfect venue in which to wile away an hour or two enjoying a languid lunch or settle onto the al fresco terrace to watch the world go by and enjoy one of Gian’s gourmet pizzas. This restaurant has become a solid favourite for ex pats, locals and visitors. It keeps its regulars coming back for more with its unswerving quality and passion for fresh, authentic contemporary Italian fare. Combining the pleasures of a pizzeria with the magnitude of gourmet Mediterranean cuisine, owner Guido Vietri has created a ristorante of great charm and appeal. The wine list offers exception Italian vintages plus superbly sourced bottles from New World vintners. Whether for a business or private lunch, a romatic dinner for two or a family celebration, Gian’s fits the bill. Signature dishes include ravioli porcini and black truffle, snow fish and their celebrated tiramisu.

The

ten top tables in Pattaya would never be complete without including the indomitable Au Bon Coin restaurant. Nestled in the hinterland of Pratamnak Hill it is indeed a secluded location but once found it will, without a doubt, become a firm favourite and one that will have you returning time and time again. This boutique eatery is quintessentially French and just oozes with Gallic charm and ambiance. The patron/chef, Jose rules his roost with savoir faire and style putting his own signature onto family style French cuisine which will spin you back to 80’s holidays in France before gastropubs, celeb chefs and the supposedly “great food revolution”. Dishes such as the wonderful prawn filled cabbage rolls or the five-hour lamb with flageolet beans will have you mmming right through to desert. Do be aware that reservations at this perennially popular restaurant are “de rigeur” (and much sought after) and also that it is closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Au Bon Coin is one of those places that turn your head and you leave vowing to go back. A full review will follow in subsequent issues of Relax.

nother top table from Pattaya’s finest is Casa Pascal. It is another unshakable choice for the discerning diner and a must-visit destination restaurant for wine lovers in Pattaya. Chef Pascal and his charming wife, Kim, have been pushing the epicurean envelope for over ten years gaining a reputation for polished service and gourmet meals. Open for breakfast/brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner this life style gourmet milieu has it all. Located in the heart of Pattaya city it is a perfect locale to while away a few tranquil hours after shopping, the cinema or sightseeing. Their monthly changing gourmet set lunches and dinners offer value in the extreme and are always well patronised. Flamed rock lobster in tarragon and Cognac sauce is a definite must-try, as is the braised baby veal shank. For desert lovers, the uber-delicious ice creams and sorbets are made in house while the chocolate mousse with figs will take you straight to heaven. Read more in later issues about Casa Pascal and the other top restaurants in town.
