Thank a Teacher This Month!

Win a Spa Package for Your Favorite Teacher!

Did you have a favorite teacher when you were in school?  That one person who encouraged you and inspired you to be more than you ever thought you could be.  You know...that teacher who taught you those life lessons that textbooks simply can't impart. We all had those teachers who were so dedicated to our education, causing us to never forget them.  October 5th is World Teachers Day.  In honor of these significant individuals, let's consider the importance of the role they play in young people's lives.

Children spend more time at school than they do at home. This means the people they encounter at school make a drastic impact in their lives. Teachers are not simply teaching lessons each day.  They're helping children develop socially and emotionally, as well.  What a tremendous responsibility!

Teachers are self-esteem builders.
One of the biggest things that teachers impact is student self-esteem.  Reinforcing self-esteem in the classroom is one of the most important things teachers do. Teachers communicate encouragement and positive feedback to their students, which is particularly vital to the success of struggling students.

Teachers are life skills instructors.
Each day in the classroom, teachers divulge life skills to students that are essential for future success. From completing a resume to appropriate behavior in social situations, teachers are preparing children for real-world events they will face in the future.

Teachers are motivators.
Teachers motivate students to become better than they think they are capable of becoming.  On a daily basis, teachers are reiterating the importance of discipline, responsibility, commitment, and always trying your very best at everything you do.  These are values that are crucial to success.

Spa Cuisine

Pumpkin Soup

A yummy fall treat!


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped, about 1/2 cup
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons prepared polenta, creamy
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper


1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.

2. Cook chopped onions until soft and golden brown.

3. Heat the broth in a good-sized pot, add pumpkin slowly, and bring to a partial boil.

4. Stir in onions, milk, polenta, honey, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, salt, and pepper (pressed garlic might be suitable at this time).

5. Make sure that the ingredients do not clump but are spread throughout the soup.

6. Cook for about 5 minutes or longer until all ingredients have been thoroughly mixed and dissolved and so the soup is thoroughly heated.

7. If at this point it seems chunkier or thicker than desired, use an immersion blender or a regular one to liquefy the soup and blend in the onions.

8. Serve warm with pieces of bread if desired

Serves 6-8

Ask a Therapist

Q: With the change in weather, I am experiencing patches of dry, flaky areas on my face. When I use a heavy moisturizer, I tend to break out. What should I do to keep my face properly moisturized without causing breakouts?

A: Now that the summer months have ended, this is the ideal time for a peel. I would suggest our Signature Facial with the addition of an Acid Peel. This will remove all of the dead skin cells that are causing the flakiness and also help balance and re-hydrate your skin. Your esthetician will also complete a thorough consultation with you to determine if there are other causes as to what you are experiencing and guide you in choosing the right home care regime.
