From cutting-edge health apps to eco-conscious restaurants, wellness travel, skincare and more, here’s what we’ve discovered this May in the world of wellness.
The New Biohacking 4-Step Treatment To Try In SW London
New to wellness space, Grey Wolfe’s repertoire of treatments is the advanced Grey Wolfe Method, the 4-step biohacking ritual that harnesses the latest wellness tech, alongside therapeutic holistic techniques for two and a half hours of recharging (literally)! An in-depth consultation form, delving into emotions, mood, energy levels, sleep assessment, wellness rituals and injuries, helps finely tune the details of your bespoke journey. Blocking the stresses of everyday life to settle into the treatment, you’ll sink into the ‘Rebalance Impulse’ bed to follow a neuro-meditation, focusing on breathwork to activate alpha waves in the brain. Once a calm mindset is in order, your therapist will cleanse the space by burning sage and encourage you to set an intention for your time in this tranquil setting. The Attuned Experience uses the power of touch for a heavenly full-body massage to stimulate blood flow and work on the areas in your body which are craving TLC. The infrared sauna features next, with its bountiful benefits including detoxification and cell replenishment, you’ll sweat out toxins for up to 45 minutes. To finish, curl up on the plush bed whilst sipping on antioxidant tea, next to the BioCharger and let it work its magic. Radiating the nourishment that nature creates in a supercharged dose, this contraction emits light, voltage, frequencies, harmonics and PEMFs (Pulse Electro-Magnetic Fields) to recharge the cells and strengthen the body’s defences. Float out feeling utterly refreshed, with a spring in your step…this pioneering treatment is worth the trip across the river to Barnes in SW London, harnessing the limitless power of biohacking!
The Eco-Conscious Kitchen Serving Up Sublime Vegetarian Cuisine
Rehousing in Shoreditch, Oliveira Kitchen is a progressive organic restaurant taking a modern approach to vegetarian gastronomy. Not that chef, Emerson Amélio de Oliveira, allows eco-washing to be the driving force of the restaurant, (the food itself does that job), but equally, its eco credentials are enough to make you book a table at Oliveriea’s Kitchen. Passionate about restoring the Amazon rainforest, where the chef’s roots are based, each element from the extraction fans, to the biodynamic wines to the sourcing of the ingredients is carried out responsibly, setting the standard for pioneering eco-restauranteurs. The menu evolves with the seasons, transforming humble vegetables into the most exquisite works of art that equally taste sublime. Cassava, a less commonly used root vegetable, is a more sustainable choice that the chef opts for on the menu. Wildly forage mushrooms feature heavily on the menu for their uncanny resemblance to meaty flavours. The kitchen works in conjunction with quality English suppliers to harness award-winning dairy products. Most of the vegetarian dishes can be made vegan, plus there’s an array of artisan British organic plant-based cheeses handmade with organic nuts. The ever-changing menu is a culinary masterpiece, that shows the chef’s innate flare for eco-conscious cooking.
The App To Making Personalised Nutrition Mainstream
Levels is the app that allows you to unlock your metabolic health through real-time, personalised data. We’re all aware of the significant impact that our nutrition has on our lifestyle, and ultimately we need insight into what we should be eating for our unique biology to optimise our health. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to our nutrition and that’s where Levels is changing the landscape for bespoke nutrition, making it more accessible than ever before. The continuous glucose monitor (CGM) is a small device that measures your blood glucose, feeding back data to the Levels app which analyses your diet and activity to suggest changes to improve your health. Helping you understand your metabolism, the app will unveil how each meal or activity impacted your glucose levels with a score to indicate whether it’s low or high. Encouraging you to make better food choices, Levels allow you to mitigate the foods having a negative effect and veer towards the foods that your body responds well to. Currently on a waitlist sign-up, it’s apparent that Levels is set to personalise the way we eat.
