Essential Oils

What is Aromatherapy?

This ancient practice involves the use of botanical essential oils obtained from aromatic plants and the essences of citrus fruits located in the peel of the fruit. Literally, the word means “therapy using aromas”.

There are healing properties of the essences or aromas found within specific parts of plants and the peel of citrus fruits. Once the aroma is extracted from the plant material the end result is known as an essential oil.

There are several ways to extract the aroma from a plant…leaves, flowers, seeds, resins or gums, berries, stem, bark, roots, and wood. Maceration is heating on top of a low fire. Steam distillation came into use after the fall of the Roman Empire when the Greco-Roman knowledge passed on to the Arabian world. In the 17th Century, oils were used medicinally, alchemy developed into technical chemistry and perfumery became a profession. In the 19th Century, the chemical composition of essential oils was identified, the creation of synthetics came about, and essential oils were used in perfumes and cosmetics. The 20th Century saw the reintroduction of essential oils into medicine and the term Aromatherapy was coined.

Sports Performance News

The quest for the Stanley Cup came to an end Sunday night in Edmonton. The Stars lost to the Oilers 2-1 bringing their season to an end.

Solomon’s next professional game, the Jets’ season opener in San Francisco against the 49ers, will be a milestone in Solomon’s career. This game will be Solomon’s 100th game as a professional football player and it comes against the team that drafted him third over all out of Stanford University. Solomon is a defensive lineman for the NY Jets, and he had one of his best professional seasons last year.

Lifestyle & Recovery Center

For the holiday weekend and the ELDOA 4 Certification Course, we spray washed the outdoor Recovery area and tuned up the dry Sauna. Our dry Sauna operates at a very low humidity and a very high temperature. To learn more about the benefits of the dry Sauna, thermal stress, and how to design and safely begin a dry Sauna practice enroll in our half day Sauna Training Workshop. Dates for the month of June will be announced. Email Claudia in the Business Office for more information.

Throughout the Spring, look for select days when we offer the Cold Plunge option with Dry Sauna and Recovery.

In addition to the Sauna Education (Certification) Course in Summer School, we plan to offer the Sauna Certification Course for clients and Student Practitioners in early summer.

Topics of discussion include the importance of sweating, what is the optimal time for a single sauna session, what is the optimal temperature to use in a Dry Sauna, how to use cold water exposure by itself, or in combination with the dry sauna, and the importance of drinking water.

As part of the Course Theory, all the participants complete the Ruffier (Pulse) Test. This simple test can be used in different aspects of a Wellness or Sports Performance Program including the length of time in a Sauna Session and exposure to cold water.

the Training Table News

the Training Table is where Wellness and Sports Performance begin!

Chef Corey cooks for Legacy’s Certification Courses and his food is always a highlight of any visit to our Center. This past weekend he was very busy here to the delight of our Student-Practitioners.

Day 1, Friday, began at noon and Chef prepared two different salads with organic greens, and grass -fed and -finished grilled chicken for dinner. Each salad had its own special dressing.

Saturday and Sunday after the Wellness Workouts, Chef cooked breakfast outside. Saturday, Students and clients were treated to ground lamb meatballs, herbed rice, eggs any way, cherries, watermelon, and apple slices. Sunday, sausage and eggs or omelets with red and green bell peppers, roasted new and Yukon potatoes, avocados, pineapple, watermelon, and blueberries and blackberries.

Sunday, during the Graduation party, Chef Corey created a charchuterie board: raw cheese with Savannah, Georgia honey, grass-fed meats, hummus with carrots, crackers, cherries – everything non-GMO, organic, dairy-, gluten- and soy-free. And of course there was champagne, Veuve Clicot to be precise.

the Training Table is an area we have dedicated within our Center where clients can sit, relax, and enjoy farm fresh high quality meals from Chef Corey and Mia Fradenburg.
