[vc_text_separator title=”Partner Content”]

New year, new you! Hudson Valley’s health and beauty experts can help you reach your personal goals for looking and feeling your best. You’ll still be you, only better!



Give yourself a virtual hug


Q. What is the best way to de-stress?

A. At Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa, in those cool to cold months, wellness and relaxation can be found with a cozy room or cottage, a fireplace, and a country breakfast. Encouraged by Buttermilk Spa’s sauna, pool, steam room, myriad treatments, and maybe even a delicious, healthful Spa Lunch delivered poolside, guests experience the ultimate detox, as the hectic pace of everyday life evaporates. The simple pleasures of an afternoon tea service or a table at Henry’s at the Farm Restaurant, will reconnect guests to pure locally sourced foods, including fresh eggs and honey from our own Millstone Farm, to be savored at leisure. And, there’s still time to take advantage of Buttermilk Falls’ Winter Welcome package that runs through March 31.

Creating a beautiful first impression


Q. Can a smile makeover help you feel more confident?

A. A smile makeover can help you feel and look your best. Beautiful smiles aren’t just about veneers and Hollywood smiles…sometimes simple things like whitening, re-contouring, bonding, etc., can make a world of difference. A truly experienced practitioner can provide many options to help you improve your smile! Remember that your smile is one of the first things others notice about you. You never have a second chance to make a first impression!

Staying healthy


Q. What is a good way to stay healthy this winter?

A. Liz Zabel, co-manager of the Emerson Spa at Emerson Resort & Spa, endorses easy, quick yoga poses to ward off winter travel bugs. “To change the blood flow and redirect pranic energy, lay on the floor for a few moments with your legs lifted over your head and against a wall,” says Zabel. “This simple pose helps relieve stress, calm the nervous system and spark the body’s inner ability to heal itself.”

Infusing balance and wellness


Q. How do I infuse balance and wellness in my life during a chilly winter day?

A. Wellness doesn’t have to be complicated or another task on your mental to-do list. Keeping some practices simple may have the best benefit to improve your wellbeing and inspire you.

Unplug. Put away your tablet, smart phone, laptop and enjoy a quiet electronic-free moment. Add a blanket, dim lights, and soft music for extra relaxation.

Breathe. Take a deep breath and focus on the simplicity of inhaling and exhaling. Infuse Himalayan salt or aromatherapy for additional wellbeing.

Connect. Enjoy the presence of a friend or significant other over a delicious meal or some relaxing spa time.

Soak, sauna, & steam. Warm up with a soak in a tub (or whirlpool), lounge in a dry sauna, or lay in a steam room.

Hydrate. Break out your water bottle, slice up some cucumber, and add water for an instant, Ahhhh refreshment.

Nourishing dry skin


Q. How can I avoid dry skin during the winter?

A. Hydration is key! Be sure to drink up — the body’s thirst response is diminished in the cold, so even though you don’t feel thirsty, you are still susceptible to dehydration. Our faces are the most exposed part of the body in the winter air. To keep you skin hydrated, we recommend keeping your face revitalized with an ultra-moisturizing facial, such as Mohonk’s Holistic Balancing Facial, which is uniquely tailored to your individual skin profile.

Effectively losing weight


Q. How do you determine if a surgical weight loss solution is right for you?

A. At the MSLC Institute for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, we provide our patients with continued support and information throughout their weight loss journey. One of the first steps in this journey is learning about all of the different surgical weight loss options available to you. We offer a free seminar that addresses how each type of surgery works, the risks, and benefits, as well as how our team can help you make these important lifestyle changes.

Relieving pain


Q. What is exclusive MLS M8 Robotic Laser Therapy and how is it used?

A. It is the painless and comfortable FDA-cleared treatment for relief of pain and inflammation due to acute and chronic orthopedic conditions using specific wavelengths of light. The treatments usually last about 8-10 minutes. Most patients experience positive results in two to four treatments; the average number of treatments is seven to ten, depending on the condition. Afterwards, most patients experience gradual improvement in pain and inflammation through their treatment plan. The effects of MLS M8 Laser Therapy are cumulative; it is important to complete the entire course of recommended treatments.
