Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has long been one of Hollywood’s best-kept beauty secrets. Celebrities swear that their skin is rejuvenated, their energy restored and stress is reduced, and athletes, such as Jason Kidd and Terrell Owens, regularly use HBOT to combat sports injuries. In a hyperbaric chamber (pictured above), the air pressure is raised to up to three times higher than normal air pressure, enabling the lungs to gather nearly three times more pure oxygen than by breathing at normal air pressure. Maya Volk, founder of Global Hyperbaric in Los Angeles, is a specialist in the field. She says, “many studies show how Hyperbaric speeds up healing, boosts your immune system, slows the affects of aging, as well as helping with detox and brain function.” Volk adds, “Hyperbaric can be effective if you have any kind of cosmetic surgery, laser treatments, chemical peels, and injectables.” In fact, top Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Brian Novack, is known to include HBOT as part of his post-operative protocol. — Leah Sydney

The mind-body practice of meditation has been around for thousands of years. The famed Mayo Clinic cites benefits such as stress reduction, self-awareness, and improved focus, considering it a valid form of “complementary medicine.” Third-generation clairvoyant, Chassidy Rana, calls meditation “the natural path to outer beauty.” According to Rana, “our energy and thoughts precede our physical presence.” Therefore, before reaching for the Botox, perhaps we should first try meditation? Rana’s Daily Discipline is the result of her more than ten thousand readings over the years. The morning meditation helps you “recall the ideas and inspiration that came during sleep, clear the karma of the day, and set your intensions,” while the evening verse helps with gaining greater intuition, communication and sleep. ”There is nothing more attractive than a sexy, magnetic woman who is spiritually, mentally, and emotionally balanced,” says Rana. And we agree! — Leah Sydney
