On the move…

Blog banner - 16th April

When the weather thaws, the plants bloom and the days get longer, Spring is here – and the best time of the year to start taking you, your family and your fitness regimen outside again.

Get outside and reap the benefits of moving your body, being exposed to natural light and breathing in the fresh air. Daily exercise really helps, especially when done outdoors and generally makes you feel better about yourself.

In the excitement of a new season of growth, here are some activities to make the most of all that spring has to offer…

Go for a walk around a lake or venture out in a tree rich area and notice that sense of wellbeing created by the negative ions found in the atmosphere. It doesn’t have to be a very long walk. Just a few minutes walking outside can work wonders on your mental wellbeing.

Go hiking. Take that extra step with hiking. A great way to unwind, disconnect from the very busy life we live and reconnect with Mother Nature. We naturally fall in love with places that prove how small we are… places that humble us with reminders that we are part of something bigger.

Go camping. This is a great way to improve relationships. Camping brings the need to trust and depend on each other. Outdoor pursuits can show us just how capable we are, often much more that we could ever have expected.

Whether you plan to get outside for just one day or a few days at the time, Nikken has plenty of portable essentials that you can take with you…

Featuring the Nikken patented DynaFlux® Magnetic Technology, with an incredible 900-1000 gauss strength, the PowerChip® is the perfect size to carry with you on your days out. The PowerChip® can be worn as a neck pendant or used in conjunction with our support wraps for more focused energy.

Another great portable magnetic product is the PowerMini, which due to its size, can be applied anywhere on your skin. As well as being small enough to carry in your bag or wallet.  The PowerMini patch is waterproof and the magnetic assemblies are re-usable.  Don’t forget your KenkoInsoles® for a gentle massaging effect on your feet as you walk.

And you can continue to enjoy your favourite nutritionals while you are on the go! The Organic Jade GreenZymes®, made from the juice of freshly harvested Organic Barley Grass, represents a great source of naturally occurring nutrients. Available in sachets, they are great for wherever you might be!

Say good-bye to the winter blues, and hello to a joyful spring, the perfect time of year to revamp, cleanse and start anew…

Happy Feet

v2 Happy Feet blog heading

We often hear the phrase ‘I’ve been on my feet all day’. This can be true for many of us, be it because of work, chasing after children all day, running errands or countless other day-to-day activities that can all take their toll on our feet.

Women in particular can be guilty of choosing fashion over function or comfort when it comes to footwear. Your feet take the weight of your whole body, so foot problems can quickly lead to discomfort and affect the way you walk. This can in turn cause knee, hip and back pain.

Research from The College of Podiatry shows that nine in 10 of us experience some sort of foot problem, with one in five admitting to suffering with foot pain often or constantly. Podiatrist Lorraine Jones says: “What this research shows is that a huge amount of people are willing to put up with sore, aching and painful feet.

She adds: “Your feet shouldn’t hurt on a daily basis. If you are experiencing discomfort it is usually because you aren’t wearing the right footwear. “[1]

There are certain things that we can do at home to make a real difference to our feet. Keeping feet clean and applying moisturiser morning and evening, may help keep feet soft and prevent a build up of hard skin. True elements® Hand & Foot Cream may help to soothe dry hands and feet, protecting and nourishing straight after application. It contains Shea butter, which is known to nourish skin and the seaweed extract chondrus, which has moisturisation properties.

As well as keeping hands and feet moisturised, wearing comfortable, well fitting shoes as often as possible can help relieve aching feet. Kenko mSteps® and Kenko mStrides® slip into your shoes and utilises Nikken’s DynaFlux® Magnetic Technology. Kenko mSteps® feature relaxing massage nodes on one side, inspired by reflexology practices, they may provide a massage effect that could help the whole body feel good from the feet upwards.

TRUE elements® Hand and Foot Cream (#2053) is currently on offer saving 50% until 31st August.
