Walk into any first-period high school classroom and it's obvious: teenagers are exhausted. Sleep deprivation is an epidemic as widespread as obesity-and just as damaging. Fortunately, science has answers and Dr. Helene Emsellem has solutions that all parents can use. Affecting the lives of more than 41 million adolescents in the United States alone, sleep deprivation is a chronic problem for kids today. We know this intuitively as we watch teenagers frantically juggle a hectic social calendar with the overwhelming demands of school, work, and chores. School performance around the country is suffering-but it's not just grades that are at risk. Sleep deprivation has been found to affect nearly every aspect of a teenager's life, from emotional stability and behavioral issues to physical well-being and the potential for drug and alcohol abuse. For years, we've blamed many of these adolescent characteristics on the natural maturing process or changing hormones. And while chemicals do surge through the body creating strong effects, sleep-the right amount and the right kind-has now been targeted for its prime importance in overall success and well-being.

A fully illustrated guide to the ancient Hawaiian art of massage with hot stones • Includes illustrated instructions for each area of the body • Explains how to combine hot stone massage with gemstone chakra treatment, detailing the specific healing powers of 54 gemstones • Recommends which base oils and essential oils enhance the effects of hot stone massage Since ancient times, the people of Hawaii have used hot stones for both physical and spiritual healing. Using basalt stones--fine-grained, high-density volcanic rocks with an exceptional ability to store heat--hot stone massage not only dispels tensions and soothes the soul but also enhances lymph flow, removes toxins, and fortifies the immune system. The treatment causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to improved circulation and consequently improved oxygen, nutrient, antibody, and protective cell supply to the area of the body under the stones and is extremely effective for joint problems, back pain, and sore muscles. Beyond the strictly physical benefits, the massage also stimulates the meridians and chakras, gently dissipating energetic blockages. This book provides step-by-step, fully illustrated instructions for treatments for each area of the body. The authors then include details on the specific healing powers of 54 gemstones, showing how to further enhance the benefits of hot stone massage with gemstone chakra treatment. For instance, in facial massage, working with amethyst can alleviate headaches and help heal skin blemishes. They also describe the therapeutic benefits of several base and essential oils and recommend specific combinations for hot stone massage. The power of the stones, the warmth of the treatment, and the massage itself unite in this holistic therapy to provide deep relaxation and calm that recharges the body and soul.

With this potent combination, businesses now have a powerful engine for creating true loyalty among their customers, employees, and partners, and for generating a sustainable competitive advantage in their markets. Loyalty 3.0 is a book that will redefine how you think about loyalty, and will open your eyes to the power of data to engage and motivate anyone, anywhere. Rajat Paharia created the gamification industry in 2007 as the founder and Chief Product Officer at Bunchball, which has been recognized as an industry leader and innovator by Fast Company, TechCrunch, MSNBC, Forbes, and many others.
