Experience this beautiful massage using herbs to open up your senses and relax your mind & body.

This is a traditional massage incorporating Swedish & Thai techniques with the use of herbal infused balls to relax, stretch & open up the body’s vital pathways allowing “Prana”  (life energy) to flow.

The cloth balls are filled with Plai-Casummunar Ginder, Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime, Camphor, Turmeric, Tamarind, Shikakai, Curcuma Comosa, along with Patchouli, Mango Ginger, Sweet Sage & Orange Skin to uplift the senses. These astringent, anti-inflammatory, soothing, ingredients promote cellular re-growth and helps the skin to fight against free radicals.

Body Oils continue the process with custom blends that include: Grapeseed oil, Rosehip Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Aloe & Olive Oil which  are excellent emollients.

The Thai herbal balls are used to open meridan or Sen lines using accupressure and Swedish moves to improve circulation and enhance relaxation. Thai stretches keep your ligaments, tendons & muscles limber, improving  lymph and  blood flow.

Thai massage is believed to be over 5000 years old. The use of herbal balls were only used on the Royal families as a form of luxury. The blend of herbs used in the Sawan herbal balls are the same recipe used by Thai healers for centuries and found at the famous massage school at Wat Po in Bangkok.  They are used in traditional Thai healing for their rejuvenating and balancing effects.

 

“Energy channels need to be kept open to promote healing in our bodies as well as our Spirit. Our Chakras are as important as our physical body systems and we need to work on the whole body to maintain perfect health. “

“Don’t back down
You gotta be a little nuts
Don’t back down
But show ’em now who’s got guts
Don’t back down
Don’t back down from that wave”

Don’t Back Down”-The Beach Boys

The gentleman in the photo would probably use lyrics from a band named “Metallic Flaming Gophers from Hell” but it’s my blog so bite me…..

What Corey Dissin does well is motivate.

There are many people who set out to achieve a goal but many find an excuse why not to do something. Corey usually finds a way…. he does not back down. From having a full time day job to running his personal training center “Train with Corey” to being a little league coach- He does it with a smile on his face. He has launched a new clothing line called “DISSIPLINE” , fusing his last name with disipline was a great idea. I wish him luck but he doesn’t need it. He’s got  plenty of  “dissipline”…

So impress your friends. Piss off your mother in law and buy her one for Mother’s Day. Wear it to church. Here’s where to order – http://www.dissipline.com

coreyMany of you have heard me mention Corey Dissin. I try to surround my world with fun, innovative and motivated people. Fitness Motivator Corey Dissin is high on my list of people who help me challenge myself. he has taught me many things most importantly-

“That training the body is important- but if you neglect the spirit you will ultimately fail”

The guy’s got soul…

Train With Corey Owner and Head Fitness Motivator Corey Dissin is proud to announce both he and assistant trainer Pascal Shin, are now the first two MMACA Certified Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Coaches in Pennsylvania and are among the first ten fitness trainers to complete this particular certification IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!

The Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association (MMACA) is the MMA certification division of NESTA (National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association), an international fitness association established in 1992 which holds the prestigious NCCA national accreditation for its Personal Fitness Trainer Certification.

The MMACA was developed to bridge the gap between sports conditioning science, Mixed Martial Arts training methods, and direct application for competitive fighting. As part of the MMACA certification process, Corey and Pascal spent over 70 hours of study and completed testing in exercise physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, sports nutrition, sports psychology and conditioning program design (all as it pertains to MMA). The course also covered Olympic weightlifting techniques, powerlifting techniques, bodyweight exercises, kettlebell training and other modalities specific to MMA. Corey and Pascal now have the ability to integrate effective and proven sport-specific conditioning drills for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, boxing, Muay Thai, kick boxing, wrestling, Judo, and others into training routines currently held at the Train With Corey private fitness studio in Parkeford at Longstreth Center.mma

We’re proud to have Corey as one of our initial graduates. We wish him continued success as he puts the MMACA curriculum into action,” says Dr. John Spencer Ellis, CEO of MMACA. “It is our mission to further legitimize the sport of mixed martial arts, develop high performance athletes, reduce MMA training injuries, and to share and teach the MMA training principles to the general fitness enthusiast.”

“Mixed Martial Arts is hot right now,” says Dissin, “Just look at how the UFC is exploding and how brands like Tapout and Affliction are becoming more and more mainstream. The MMA Conditioning Coach credential now allows us to confidently train our clients like a professional MMA fighter without the risks associated with actual MMA competitions. We’re looking forward to sharing what we learned with our current and future clients.”

unclesa2When it came to fitness, I used to think that a good reason was all that was needed to get started. My first reason was that I was overweight. I immediately allowed myself ONLY strawberry Pop-Tarts  (I was sure that blueberry was the real culprit). Another reason was that my clothes were too tight. However, I thought this was due to my better half  washing my clothes in hot water. When I regained consciousness at the bottom of the stairs, she assured me that this wasn’t the case and further laundry would be done by yours truly.

Reasons weren’t going to be enough.

I needed to be motivated.

I met personal trainer Corey Dissin thru Dr. Andy Fetterman a few months ago. (Dr. Fetterman reasoned that scrapple and any flavored Pop-Tart  could be contributing to my lethargy and expanding waistline). Introducing me to Mr.Dissin  I made the comment, “do you like being a personal trainer?” His response was eloquent and to the point. “I look at myself as a fitness motivator“.  “That’s just crazy talk” , I stammered. He invited me to find out what a fitness motivator does. I’m so glad I did.

Corey has helped me find my intensity. My sessions are always a new experience. The variety of exercises keep me from getting stuck in a rut and I feel the results. By the way if I failed to mention,  I am a type 1 diabetic with hypertension. “Train with Corey” has helped  those conditions as well. I’ve also decided to attend Corey’s “Fitness Boot Camp” on Saturdays starting October 3rd…..

Power_Girl_002– a fun, rapid-fire style workout with tons of super-sets, circuits, and little down time.

– a variety of calisthenics, dynamic stretching, push-ups, sit-ups, sprints, plyometrics, cardio/aerobics, etc.

– 60 minutes of POSITIVE MOTIVIATIONno drill instructor style screaming tactics.

– this is for all experience levels, from “I never exercise” all the way to “I’m a gym rat.”

– it’s a great opportunity to workout with your family or friends that you may not be able to do in the confines of a normal gym setting.

– It’s AFFORDABLE. Session packages are as low as under $13 per session.

I’m looking forward to this. Believe or not it’ll be fun!bottom.letterhead

I will also post my progress with “Train with Corey” as the weeks go by….it may not be pretty but it’ll help me stay focused.
