Massage has long been regarded as a way to relax the mind and body but did you know it has a wide range of health benefits that are particularly helpful this time of year?Read More
We are purists when it comes to natural beauty. We believe that a balanced, holistic approach to beauty, health & wellbeing is the best one. We're big on results. Nothing we do here is without purpose & benefit. Our products are effective & substantial, not "fluff". Our treatments are chosen with results in mind, yet not at the expense of safety or risk of long-term negative side-effects.
So why blog about it, aren't our beliefs implicit in our menu offerings? Well yes, but we believe being educated is a huge part of holistic wellness & while we're honored to have our clients' trust in our choices, we want to offer info that enables you to make your own conclusions--for you as an individual; a unique whole. We are all different. Our personal belief structures vary. Some of us are drawn to product-centered treatments, other prefer technology. We wish to offer options alongside insight and, let's be honest, we'll be including our recommendations...because we can't help ourselves.
So much goes into what we offer here at The Fifth Om, from evaluating products [ingredients + efficacy + potential return on investment (on the personal level, not business)+ overall experience], to sorting through treatments and trends (assessing which are worthy of the hype, those that aren't, and their potential ROI), and we recognize the immense effort it takes to truly find answers. Quite frankly, reconciling the often incomplete or incongruous information in this industry can be incredibly involved and confusing--definitions and verbiage vary so widely that researching products, services, tools, etc. could be a full-time job.
So, it is our intention to be a resource. To answer questions here that we field regularly in our studio, and to bring light to other, lesser known considerations. If you have any questions that you'd like us to explore, please shoot them over. We'd love to hear from you.

In light of the recent multimillion dollar verdict against Johnson & Johnson for their use of potentially-cancer-linked-talc in their feminine hygiene products, this week's ingredient swap-out: talc for arrowroot powder.
What is talc and why should we swap it out?
Talc, a naturally occurring mineral and the main ingredient in talcum powder, is a huge no-no in personal care products because of its potential link to cancer and its risk to the lungs.
