Some of the goals with taping are to restrict the movement of injured joints, soft tissue compression to reduce swelling. support anatomical structures, and as protection from re-injury. Taping is used as one of the means of rehabilitation or prophylaxis in instances where support and stability are needed, as a first-aid tool, for the prevention of injury and protection of an injured anatomical structure while healing is taking place.

Living healthy? Why stop at your diet….

The health of your scalp is where healthy hair starts. Quality organic hair products can reverse the damage and strengthen the hair. Natural hair products can replenish the hair’s moisture, repair the bonds broken by chemicals and processing, and eliminate damage-causing free radicals.

 

“There are fewer chemicals and usually no ammonia in organic hair dyes.”

Ammonia is the ingredient that conventional dye formulas use to penetrate the hair cuticle and deposit color. It has the potential to severely damage and weaken the hair, which is why people with sensitive strands might find organic hair dye to be a better, healthier option. When considering whether organic hair dye is right for you, you’ll want to factor in the state and color of your hair. Since organic hair dye is less harsh than conventional dyes, those with dry, damaged hair might find it a good option.  It will be a healthier choice for strands, and dye also has an easier time gripping to weakened hair.

 

Organic Way (Oway) is the world’s first professional organic haircare and styling line with biodynamic, organic, and fair trade ingredients. Oway’s green chemists hand-select the highest quality formula to achieve professional results without the use of common salon toxins. Oway lets you immerse yourself into a multi-sensorial, non-toxic salon experience with active botanicals and pure essential oils.

 

From farm to chair, Oway’s organic salon products take root on their family’s biodynamic farms in Bologna, Italy – where Italian quality meets nature. Oway insiders call it OrtOfficina. There, they grow, pick and distill their pure organic extracts, essential oils and hydrolates with zero chemicals, in accordance with biodynamic farming standards.

Oway  has enlisted the help of two donkeys to work on its Ortofficina farm in Bologna. Spritz and Fulmine, two free-range donkeys, have been left to roam on the farm in order to mow vegetation and produce fertiliser.

The Ortofficina farm has not been exposed to manmade chemicals for more than 100 years, and the brand prides itself on its biodynamic farming methods.

Oway grows its own rosemary, lemon balm, sage, thyme, mint and helichrysum, which are then harvested and distilled – without the use of solvents – into essential oils before being used as ingredients in its hair care products.

Simone Sighinolfi, Oway International Commercial Director, said: “Biodynamic farming is what puts Oway above the rest.

“This method focuses not only on potent and pure organic ingredients, but also on unity and ethical growing standards for plants and animals.

“Spritz and Fulmine help to cultivate the essential oils that we use in our products, ensuring that they are extra nutritious, and as pure and rich as they can possibly be.”

 

Oway also has a color line called Hnectar that is both fragrance and ppd-free.
