earmate: Does your Brain need a tan?

As mobile phone use increases in Australia and New Zealand, so too does concern about the potential health effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR).

Unfortunately, as the tobacco industry has proven, what we don't know can still hurt us.

So, what can you do about it?
Prevention is always the best medicine… at this stage it may be the only solution for some of the health effects linked to mobile phone radiation.

Research Findings

Earmate is the only mobile phone personal hands free in Australia and New Zealand that has been independently proven to reduce EMR exposure to the brain by up to 98%.

This drastically reduced level of radiation is the most anyone would ever want soaking into their brain.

Simple, safe and inexpensive, earmate provides a solution that will protect you and your family both now and well into the future.

Take control of your exposure to mobile phone radiation. Make a friend for life today!

Get an earmate™ NOW! For more information about earmateTM, speak with your local mobile phone dealer, or visit



Tropical Christmas Treats:Urban Retreat Visits Indonesia!

Our search for personal sanctuary, rest and relaxation this year took us to Indonesia, where we retreated to the mountains of Ubud in Bali. As usual our passion for Massage and exotic Day Spa experiences led us to research some fabulous traditional treatments which we have now brought back to the Urban Retreat in Brisbane.

We have sourced local ingredients to incorporate into our treatments and it is good to know that we buy directly from people in the small villages, providing a much-needed source of revenue for the Balinese.

My favourite treatment is the Balinese Lulur - traditionally used as a pre marriage ritual to cleanse and prepare the bride and groom for wedding day. The body is pampered and scrubbed with a Jasmine rice paste, bathed in yoghurt and massaged with heavenly essential oils. It is truly a special experience to cleanse the body mind and soul.

Rex loves the Green Tea scrub, which he says helps to detox and renergise his whole body. This is also followed by a fresh and re-energising massage.

We have a range of these wonderful treats available on our Christmas menu and also have some fantastic Health Programmes available for those that wish to be off to a healthy start next year, but do not have the time to get to an out of city health retreat. We wish you all a safe and happy Christmas, take the time to stop and enjoy the company of your loved ones, the environment around you and the positive things in life.

Our Special Offer for this season is $10.00 off our Balinese Lulur.

Lifestyle Laser Clinic:Nature Conquered by Technology!

Remember how sexy body hair was in the 70's? Today things are very different, largely because technology has made it possible to achieve a look that was unattainable just a decade ago. Lifestyle Laser Clinic at the Spring Hill Marketplace specialises in making a difference to the lifestyles of its clients. Clinic Director Stuart Pryor says that they fill the gap between beauty therapist salon and cosmetic surgery.

Lifestyle Laser offers painfree and permanent laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and chemical peels to rejuvenate skin, reduce sun damage, scarring and pigmentation. Their laser is also used to remove broken capillaries and spider veins that commonly appear on the face and legs. In its latest addition to their range of services, the clinic is now offering injectables such as Botox™ and dermal fillers through a visiting cosmetic physician. It is now easier than ever to improve on nature and reverse the visible signs of aging.

The most asked question about laser hair removal is about its permanence. The clinic is able to demonstrate to clients that the laser destroys the hair follicle without damage to other tissue, and once destroyed, it cannot grow another hair. The only other way to destroy a hair follicle is electrolysis, which is very slow, requiring an electric current passed into each follicle individually. The clinic sees people who in desperation have tried everything, including creams and potions that never work long term and can severely damage the skin. We find that after a client has had a free test patch done, which takes only a few minutes, they feel very relaxed about the procedure. Now is the ideal time to prepare for next Spring, which is only three months away.

For the first 30 readers of Naturally Happy to call, Lifestyle Laser Clinic is offering a free skin analysis by its resident beauty therapist or $25 off a laser treatment in addition to your discount. To improve your lifestyle, call the clinic on (07) 3832 0122. or click here

Here is a subtle and often misunderstood fact about stress:For every period of stress in your life, you need a corresponding period of relaxation, just to maintain your health. To manage stress effectively, you can’t go directly from a stressful situation to normal life without spending a time of stress-free relaxation. If you neglect the relaxation stage, you will accumulate the effects of stress until they begin to do very serious damage–physical, emotional, and spiritual. more click here
