Spider Vein Removal.
I have just had my spider veins removed by our lovely Spanish Therapist Innes. My spider veins were
spreading and looking horrendous, so I had them injected and after 3 treatments, they have gone. This
was painless and so effective. I definitely recommend a consultation if you have these unsightly
veins. Innes is with us every 4 - 6 weeks.

Sophia's is proud to announce a new type of facial, called "Peeling Químico". It translates as
Facial peel. It's a light chemical peel that is non-invasive, it removes the upper layers of dead and
damaged skin and encourages skin cell regeneration. This type of peel provides gentle treatment for
fine lines, acne, chronic dry skin, and uneven pigmentation. For any of you that have experienced Laser
Hair Removal will already know our Spanish Beauticians Ines and Rocio. These lovely ladies will be
offering this new facial on their visits to Sophia's.

I didn't know this ... and to think all these years I've only been making salads with the cucumbers
or adding a slice to my Gin and Tonic.
What a little gem the cucumber is. I will look at it differently now.
- Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one cucumber contains Vitamin B1,
Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium,
Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.
- Feeling tired in the afternoon? Put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber. Cucumbers
are a good source of B vitamins and Carbohydrates that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can
last for hours.
- Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a small pie tin and your
garden will be free of pests all season long. The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminium
to give off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area.
- Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool? Try rubbing a
slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the
cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the
visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!
- Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed and
wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to
replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a
hangover and headache!
- Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used for
centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off
Most people think acupuncture is used to fix things like painful necks, shoulders, knees and backs
or to give up smoking. Whilst these may be true the real strength of Traditional Acupuncture lies
in helping people who are well to stay well. We get our cars serviced to prevent breaking down and
this is how we should regard the use of acupuncture in managing our health - to keep us well.
