The Fire Treatment: One of China's Fiery Massage Treats

The Fire Treatment Massage: Spa Near Guangzhou Hotel

The past decade of advances in clinical psychology has afforded men free access to information regarding what women want. A visit to your neighborhood bookstore will reveal hundreds of crazy books authored by crazy writers in an attempt to provide "useful" information to their willing male victims. Men's magazines are not only filled with filth (if women read it) but also tips on how to bag the next damsel in distress by setting up a bait. And what is that bait? What women want.

What is Married Life without a Wok? (Ten Years and Counting)

This moment is captured on photo by Jan van der Crabben

In two days, I will have completed a decade of marriage. And fortunately , with the same man. While most pious women will write (or think) about how trials and challenges have strengthened their love and commitment to their spouses, I choose to write about a wok. It may be a trivial matter to most, but I find the wok to be one of the most soulful elements in my relationship (and that means friendship and marriage, which are two separate components) with my husband.

Smart Smencils: It's the Peppermint That Makes You Smart!

Did you know that the scent of peppermint induces a significant amount of blood flow in the brain that enhances one's memory? It actually does! The use of peppermint dates back to centuries ago when it was used by people who lived near the Mediterranean Sea, where the peppermint plant species originated. Its benefits to the human body range from brain (memory) to tummy (digestion-related relief) and is fully backed up by clinical studies conducted by a variety of groups in the United States.
