CVST – Two-Cups Cranial Vibro-Sound Therapy © – Creator – Nicola, LMT

CVST vibrations are a relaxing massage modality technique in which Cranial muscles and tissues are pressed and released in an up and down movement. A Cranial sound vibration massage creates a vibrating sound and shaking motion onto the facial muscles and facia muscles that can be performed in a soothing or a more stimulating way. Lighter vibration sound techniques can also help stimulate the Parasympathetic nervous system which is linked to the Autonomic Nervous System and the Sympathetic nervous system and helps the Cranial muscles relax. An increasing speed of vibrations sounds can be used to stimulate the circulatory system and loosen soft tissues. The length of the CVST massage session is anywhere between 10 and 60 minutes depending on your individual needs.

It affects about 15% to 20% of people and is especially common in older adults. For some, it is felt like a buzzing or whistling sound that troubles them at night. Tinnitus is actually very common and affects about one in five people. The disturbance may be continuous or periodic in nature.

The Psychology of being a Female Cougar over 50

The Psychology of being a Female Cougar over 50

A woman beyond a certain age cannot have children so when such a woman goes on the prowl for some young meat <- this is exactly what she’s after. Her interest is carnal. She’s an insecure animal who needs physical proof that she’s still got it, that she can attract a stud, sometimes with money but she earned it so it’s all her. Yes, I’m 100% correct here. If she was looking for companionship - plenty of men her age (and older) who might provide that, and they provide a more sophisticated form of companionship, they are not sex-minded boys.

Earth Day

Earth Day

SINCE 1970: Earth Day has been celebrated since 1970. It was first observed in the United States when people took to the streets to protest against the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill, which killed thousands of sea birds, dolphins, seals, and sea lions.
