Best Luxury Spa Abama Hotel Tenerife, Wellness and Beauty Package: Holistic Slim & Detox Wellness and Beauty Packages a Healthy Deal

It is well known that wellbeing is about the mind and the body being in harmony. With that in mind, the top luxury spa at the Abama 5 star hotel resort in Tenerife Spain offer Total Wellness Spa Packages; holistic breaks that are not only healthy but also provide plenty of pleasurable pampering.

Health and Beauty Matters at Abama Best Luxury Spa Tenerife Spain

Being well starts with an EIS test given by Holistic Life Coach Daniela Herzberg, who oversees the clients' program. This extraordinary machine evaluates ABAMA Spa guests' current health state, revealing any weaknesses. From the diagnostic results she plans a Total Wellness detox program for mind, body and the mystical soul. This includes health and beauty treatments during the stay, an exercise schedule, dietary recommendations and advice for emotional well-being individually tailored to the needs and goals of each client.

With two electrodes on each side of the head, and both hands and feet placed on metal plates, the organic reveal begins. The monitor displays a body image with each organ showing different colours indicating how well they are functioning. Blue indicates a weakness, the more intense the hue, the weaker the area and yellow indicates "over-activity" the more intense the colour, the stronger the activity.

Abama Spa Tenerife Spain Tailor-made Diet, Detox & Exercise Plan

Most of the organs show normal, but the yellow in the pancreas is not good. This indicates an abnormal acidity – the cause? A sausage at breakfast is the culprit. Daniela is firm but kind. Sausage or meat for this guest is not good at all in the morning. She suggests starting the day with porridge, wholemeal bread or muesli and fruit.

Overweight – yes, but only a little. Daniella makes light of the extra poundage. Reducing sugar and coffee intake to a minimum and not going for a second glass of alcohol is a start; better still just cut it out. Also recommended is having more alkaline food such as olive oil, almonds, pulses, sprouts and green vegetables.

Special Exercises & Detox treatment Abama Spa Resort

Adrenalin shows low and Coach Daniela gently suggests more exercise. Cursory bi-annual visits to the gym are not sufficient. She recommends a Qi Gong exercise which is a physical discipline similar to Thai Chi. Bend at the knees and gently push up the pelvis, holding this postion for 20 minutes daily. This can be done in five-minute sessions: waiting for a bus, in line at the supermarket, during a lunch break in the park and after washing teeth and before retiring to bed.

She says it's terrific for the butt, waist and thighs and no sweat at all in small frequent doses. Water retention is discovered, and Daniela arranges a lymphatic drainage massage. It doesn't work immediately, but after a couple of days the excess toxic fluids disperse themselves.

Holistic Health & Beauty Treatments ABAMA Luxury Spa

To follow: pampering massages, manicures and pedicures, Aloe Vera Nourishing Wraps (terrific for skin) and a special treat; the traditional "Gommage" Body Scrub with Black Soap, Eucalyptus and Argan Oil. This leaves skin looking refreshed and feeling soft like a baby. Afterwards comes the refreshing Thermal Circuit: Showers, steam and sauna and the giant size Jacuzzi hub an invigorating meeting place for social interaction.

After a hard day at the Spa what a pleasure it is to flop on to the super-size cool sheeted, triple pillowed luxury of the hotel bed.

Bengals’ Ndukwe Hosts Wellness Camp

As the weather warms up and school is winding down, children of all ages are gearing up for summer vacation.

Within the next week or so schools will close its doors for the summer, leaving kids with two-plus months of free time.

Cincinnati Bengals' safety Chinedum Ndukwe hopes the area youth don't spend their time eating junk food and playing video games. Instead, Ndukwe has started his very own foundation that stresses the importance of physical and mental wellness of local kids.

Ndukwe Foundation

The Ndukwe Foundation was founded in 2009 and is dedicated to providing resources to help local communities establish lives enriched with wellness. The mission of Ndukwe's foundation is "to educate youth on the benefits of healthy eating, staying active and setting goals to achieve optimal wellness."

Recently, Ndukwe hosted the inaugural Youth Wellness Camp presented by Mercy Health Partners, which was a free event for over 200 local boys and girls. Ndukwe and several of his Cincinnati Bengal teammates hosted the youngsters for a day of fitness and fun, and also gave the kids a chance to participate in physical activities and an interactive health expo on nutrition and wellness.

Ndukwe was a business major at the University of Notre Dame, graduating with a double major in Business Management and Psychology. During the past two off seasons, Ndukwe attended the Harvard Business School and the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania as part of the NFL Business Management Program.

"I recognize the value of a healthy lifestyle in my everyday life and I am excited to share my passion for enriched living with the youth through the work of the foundation," Ndukwe said.

Ndukwe Foundation's Mission

The stated goals of the Ndukwe Foundation are to create and support change in nutrition and physical activity within local schools; engage schools, families and communities to promote wellness through healthy eating and active living; and create resources and community partnerships with organizations working toward similar goals.

"Physical fitness and wellness create a strong foundation to cultivate discipline and leadership, and these skills are the basis for a bright future," Ndukwe said. "The Ndukwe Foundation strives to share these principles with our community and provide positive reinforcement to young people."

Ndukwe on the Field

Ndukwe was drafted by Cincinnati in 2007 and has played three seasons at safety for the Bengals. He played in all 16 regular season games and one playoff game last year, starting 13 of those contests. He finished the 2009 campaign with 89 tackles, two sacks and one interception.
