Project Juice and Ritual Wellness to Join Forces – Merger to Create West Coast’s Leading Certified Organic Retail Juicery


San Francisco, CA and Orange County, CA (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

In what will be one of the first of its kind in the juice industry, Southern California-based Ritual Wellness and Northern-California-based Project Juice are excited to announce they will be joining forces, merging brands and identities so that they may bring their certified organic, non-GMO, cold-pressed juices, nut mylks, cleanses and plant-based foods to a wider audience across the country.

Uniting the companies under the Project Juice name, each of the new brand’s nine storefronts throughout San Francisco, San Diego and Orange counties will also operate under the Project Juice umbrella. Employees from both companies will operate as a team, uniting Ritual Wellness co-founder Marra St. Clair and her partner Lori Kenyon Farley with Project Juice founders Rachel and Greg Malsin and Devon Briger.

“We are thrilled to unite with Project Juice because it is the best thing for our customers,” St.Clair said. “The merge allows us to be an even better partner to our clients’ in their efforts to live well.”

The merge of the two brands, both leading forces in the juicing field – Ritual Wellness since its inception in March 2010 and Project Juice since late 2012 – with established reputations as being the best tasting, highest quality and most nutritionally-dense juices, results in a strategically curated menu of juices and cleanses, with exciting plans for 2015.

“The cold-pressed juice space has become very fragmented, very quickly, and information sharing is basically non-existent,” said Project Juice co-founder Rachel Malsin. “Through this merger process, we’ve already learned so much about how to be a better company. Ritual Wellness and Project Juice customers have a lot to look forward to.”

Taking advantage of the company’s expanded footprint, with the continued goal of making use of the freshest local and organic ingredients possible, Project Juice will be able to respond to the varying growing seasons up and down the West Coast by dividing sourcing between Northern and Southern California. The business merger immediately multiplies Project Juice’s purchasing power, enabling the company to work directly with more California farms. Purchasing directly from the farm, rather than through distributors, guarantees maximum freshness and quality while helping Project Juice to better support local growers.

Combining businesses also allows the two companies to create more efficient administration and operational systems, ultimately creating more time and bandwidth to focus on product innovations and an improved customer experience.

“Our joint mission is to provide the highest quality organic juice and plant-based foods, and to inspire people to live healthier lives,” Kenyon Farley said.

A revamped Project Juice website will launch in the first quarter, providing a better user experience, while a promotional offer of free shipping, which has long been requested by the company’s nationwide audience, will be the first of many projects under the new merger. Throughout the year, Project Juice will continue to expand with additional retail stores, product innovations and other undisclosed projects.

Leading Sleep Expert Offers Five Modern Day Tips for a Better Nights Sleep

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 02, 2015

While many people find it easy to be mindful of and work toward being healthier by changing their nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle habits, perhaps the most crucial element to a healthy body is often overlooked: Sleep. We spend up to a third of our lives doing it and we will literally die without it. Yet, the sleep aid sections of local pharmacies continue to expand, as an estimated 60 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders and over $ 56 billion and 25,000 lives are lost each year in the US because of sleep-related accidents.

In conjunction with national Sleep Awareness Week, March 2-8, 2015 (http://sleepfoundation.org/events-activities/sleep-awareness-week), sleep expert Karen Schwarzbach has compiled a list of five lesser-known facts and tips for a healthier sleep that everyone can consider and integrate into their lifestyles. Schwarzbach, a respected sleep consultant for more than twelve years who has helped literally thousands of sleep-deprived individuals finally achieve healthy and peaceful sleep patterns, outlines what she considers some of the more unknown sleep problems – and their solutions – that she encounters in our increasingly technology-dependent and high-pressure performance culture. With the recent nationwide integration the Affordable Health Care Act, Schwarzbach’s work has been increasingly in demand as focus on corporate wellness programs now being required by the act (for corporations of a certain size) continue to proliferate.

Schwarzbach, who routinely advocates sleep as one of the “Three Pillars of Health” (along with exercise and nutrition), has outlined the following top five oft-times surprising factors that contribute to modern Western cultural sleep maladies and her corresponding secrets for a better night’s sleep:


Avoid Wine Before Bedtime. It’s a nightly ritual for many Americans – drinking a couple of glasses of alcohol directly before falling asleep. In fact, many people consider alcohol a sleep aid due to its relaxing qualities. But, what many don’t realize is it is also common for pre-bedtime drinks to contribute to one being wide awake several hours after conking out. Schwarzbach explains that while drinking before bed can induce sleep, it actually disrupts sleep and diminishes the quality and depth of sleep, leading to restlessness and frequent wakings leaving one feeling fatigued the next morning. Also, alcohol is a diuretic, which can be dehydrating as well as increase one’s need to go the bathroom, causing one to awaken from slumber. She recommends that if wine or alcohol are a part of your evening routine, try to stop drinking at least one hour prior to sleep to preserve the most deep and crucial stages of sleep.

Avoid Electronics Before Bedtime. Many people routinely attempt to fall asleep immediately after watching television, using their laptops or checking e-mail or using apps on their smart phones. Many people are unaware that these devices all emit low blue light, which is absorbed and processed by the brain and can disrupt or slow down the body’s melatonin production, which influences natural nighttime sleep algorithms. Schwarzbach recommends ceasing the use of all devices at least 1 hour prior to going to bed and not keeping phones and laptops on at the bedside.

Sleep Tracking Devices Aren’t a Cure-All. As increasing use of technology can impair sleep, the recent onslaught of new technology devices and apps that help track and monitor sleeping habits can help improve overall sleep. However, Schwarzbach warns that while these technologies can provide important data, they are often unaccompanied by meaningful and effective behavioral modification programs. Schwarzbach promotes a “High Tech with High Touch” approach, working with her clients to map out routines for remedying problem-causing factors to maximize the useful info that has been gathered.

Daylight Savings Time Can Debilitate. While it may seem like only an hour and of little change to one’s daily schedule, biannual time shifts can dramatically and adversely affect sleeping patterns for weeks – even months – following the clock changes. Even a slight change in the body’s regular circadian rhythm can throw sleep patterns into disarray, an issue Schwarzbach says is often incredibly evident in children. In order to better adapt to these changes, Schwarzbach recommends starting to adjust the time you go to bed and the time you wake up by 15 minutes every couple of days preceding the time change. This way you have helped your body land back where it began when the clock moves forward by an hour in the Spring.

Never Underestimate Sleep Environment. Factors including noise, light, temperature, pillows and mattress and decor might seem like obvious considerations for an optimal sleeping environment, but Schwarzbach emphasizes the importance of considering all five of these factors for improving unhealthy sleep. It could be as easy as taking down a loudly colored painting on the wall, reducing the room lighting to a lower bulb wattage (low blue light), turning the clock away from your bed so you’re not tempted to start doing math in the middle of the night figuring out how many more hours of sleep you can get, using a white noise maker, choosing the most appropriate bedding or decreasing the room temperature to between 65 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit (“Cool is the Rule!”) degrees prior to sleep.

“Insomnia is perhaps the most underrated health ailment in the US and Sleep Awareness Week is a time for self-reflection and education for improving these ailments,” said Schwarzbach. “Our sleep patterns dramatically affect our health, performance and overall sense of well-being. Once people have the tools and information to modify their sleeping habits, they can experience life-changing results within days and weeks.”

Fortunately, Mr. Leadbetter introduced me to the Juvent device and it has simply been an amazing factor in my life. I feel healthier, stronger, more in balance, more energized and the terrible arthritis pain has all but disappeared. I am age 68 and I’m playing some of the best golf of my life.” Rush Simonson, CEO and Chairman of Juvent added, “Arlene is an incredible lady, an incredible competitor and a point of pride for all of us who work at Juvent. We are so pleased to have been able to help her continue playing the game she loves so much but more pleased about the positive impact we’ve been able to help make on her overall physical wellness and quality of life.

CHARLESTON, SC (PRWEB) February 05, 2015

We’re giving team members the ability to research, compare and purchase benefits online, so they actually understand how to enroll and what’s best for their families – all within the PeopleMatter Platform™. It’s truly a win-win for everyone involved.”

Mayfair Hotel’s Art Basel Week Kick-Off Celebrates Miami’s Leading Ladies of Glamour


Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 21, 2014

Art Basel Week kicks off in style for a great cause on Monday, December 1st at the glamorous rooftop of The Mayfair Hotel & Spa Miami with a soiree benefitting the Sabrina Cohen Foundation for Individuals Living with Paralysis – Putting Lives Back Into Motion (SCF). The celebration features portraits taken by Miami artist Henry Perez of “Miami’s Leading Ladies of Glamour” at some of the area’s most iconic cultural locations – Wynwood, Coconut Grove, the Miami Design District, South Beach’s Art Deco District, Coral Gables and Little Havana. The exhibition is called “La Force de Femmes au Naturel” (The Power of Natural Women) and features fifty of Florida’s fabulous females without any retouching or photo-shop (au naturel!), honoring the spirit and power of women leaders who make a difference in the community, like Sabrina Cohen.

The Opening Reception is free and open to the public and promises to draw many of the women celebrated in the exhibition. Proceeds from the raffling of specially framed artwork from the show and a silent auction will benefit SCF – the non-profit organization that advocates for research and quality-of-life health initiatives, dedicated to building a global network of top scientists and clinicians in the field of Regenerative Medicine, while funding cutting-edge research and innovative therapies to reverse paralysis and treat other impairments of the Central Nervous System.

The exhibition features 128 artworks (25 portrait prints plus a projection installation of all of the images), and will remain on view at the Mayfair Hotel throughout Art Basel Week. “The Mayfair Hotel is proud of our ongoing initiatives to support Miami’s arts and culture,” said the hotel’s General Manager Axel Gasser. “The Mayfair Hotel’s Art Basel kick-off happens every year on the Monday of Art Basel Week, and this season we are thrilled to showcase artist Henry Perez and The Sabrina Cohen Foundation for Individuals Living with Paralysis.”

“These are the most inspiring and beautiful women I am blessed to know,” said the artist Henry Perez. The women span in age from their early 20’s to nearly 80, representing a wide variety of races and ethnicities. The series is a culmination of over a year’s worth of photo-shoots.

All portraits were shot in black-and-white, and have not been retouched or photo-shopped in any way to preserve the natural beauty of the subjects. “These women all influenced their surroundings and to the style and energy of their individual photo-shoots,” said Perez. “I wanted them to all feel totally comfortable and at ease, while I captured their natural spirit and force of energy as women who contribute to Miami’s community.”

“We are honored that the Mayfair Hotel has selected the Sabrina Cohen Foundation for its Art Basel Week kickoff event this year,” said Sabrina Cohen, founder of the organization. “Partnering with one of Miami’s most iconic hotel landmarks, and with one of Miami’s most beloved photographers Henry Perez, is a winning combination for Art Basel Week in Miami.” Born and raised in Miami Beach, Sabrina endured a severe C3-5 spinal cord injury in 1992 at the age of 14 from a car accident. She has been confined to a wheelchair ever since.

In 2006, she established the Sabrina Cohen Foundation to educate the public about the cause and raise funds for research. She has lectured at educational and scientific conferences, including at Harvard University, Stanford University, Baylor College of Medicine at the University of Texas, University of Michigan and at the United Nations. Sabrina’s media coverage as the Foundation’s spokesperson includes interviews with CNN, NBC, FOX, CBS, ABC, Good Morning America, NPR, WebMD Magazine (nominated a 2009 American Health Hero), and the Wall Street Journal. She was named a national “Woman Doing Good” by Self Magazine, for which she appeared on “The Today Show.” Currently she has teamed up with the City of Miami Beach to create the first fully accessible beach in the State of Florida. Sabrina also encourages fitness and rehabilitative initiatives to help those living with paralysis through “Sabrina’s Circle” scholarship program, inspiring others with her personal progress in the gym on her blog: “NeuroFitGirl: My Workout Program.”
