The Benefits of Baby Massage
 We recently started offering baby massage, and baby massage classes, at our spa in Palisades, NY. I sat down with Patricia Pol, our infant massage therapist and instructor, to ask her about the benefits of massaging your baby. Little did I know there would be so many! Here's what she told me.   Me: What are the benefits of baby massage? Patricia: There are so many! Massage helps improve your baby’s sleeping patterns and digestion. It can also ease congestion and soothe babies with colic. Using long strokes helps with muscle coordination and aids development. It can even help them build up the strength in their neck,...

Enter Our Halloween Costume Contest!
Enter our Halloween Costume Contest & Giveaway! Halloween is Ben’s favorite holiday. I think it might be our community’s favorite holiday as well. Our town, Nyack, NY, hosts a parade every year that passes by our home. I am always amazed by the costumes and floats people create! This year the local rowing team was a boatload of Vikings! The owner of our local health food store, Back to Earth, dressed up as a carrot, with a broccoli sidekick. (It was a nice reminder to eat your vegetables on a day that is awash with candy.) Ben and his friend Taylor enjoyed dancing to the beat of the marching bands. Ben was a Ninja this year. ...

Inspiration Fresh From The Farm
It’s all about fresh food this time of year. I get these cravings for slices of tomatoes on crusty bread with olive oil, salt and pepper. We made dinner the other night and many colors were represented, from green to yellow to purple. We had striped candy beets, French green beans and locally grown corn. It was definitely a sign of nature’s bounty. Ben and I had been to the Farmer's Market that day, and we were inspired. Ben, however, is not yet so inclined to eat many vegetables. He likes, as he calls them, "mixed-up vegetables"—corn, peas and carrots, and not much else. He does eat cannellini beans, a mild white bean that he...

Teeth Brushing for Tots
We get a lot of questions about our Children’s Tooth Gel. When to use it? Is it safe? We think you should start as soon as the teeth show up, but it’s a good idea to get infants used to the idea of teeth brushing before you begin. You can do this by first wrapping a piece of wet gauze around your finger and using it on their gums. Then you can move on to a little finger brush with a dot of Children’s Tooth Gel. The parents who call are always happy to hear that our Children’s Tooth Gel is safe to swallow. And kids love the taste. Becket, pictured, the son of our sales manager Gannon, is 14-months-old and, as his mom puts it,...
