Sliding off the chairlift at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and gazing out over snow-capped peaks, plunging valleys, and a seemingly unending expanse of clear blue sky, it only takes one look to see why the Canadian Rockies have long been hailed as a skier's paradise.
This stretch of mountains carves its way through British Columbia and Alberta, Canada's most westerly provinces. Here, hundreds of trails lined with fresh powder make for limitless downhill adventure. And at the end of the day, there are dozens of spas to seek out for a tranquil, après-ski refuge.
If you're contemplating a potential winter vacation, Western Canada is calling. Here are five of our favorite ski and spa destinations in the Canadian Rockies.
Stem cell therapy may not be what first comes to mind when the topic of health and wellness is brought up, but it's an option that has made the rounds abroad and is now here in the Philippines.
The treatment, also called regenerative cell therapy, uses stem cells to restore damaged or weaker cells and tissues — it's often used to treat joints or cancer, through a bone marrow transplant.
But RCT for wellness is a preventive measure, rather than a cure — it's a way of improving the "quality of life," said doctor Mary Jane Torres, owner and medical director of The Zen Institute, a medical spa that offers the treatment.
"Stem cells are usually decreased when you age. It cannot cope with the wear and tear of your body," Torres explained, on why people usually get RCT. By extracting your own stem cells and re-injecting them into your body, they're activated once again, initiating cell growth.
But how exactly are stem cells used as an anti-aging treatment? Here are all our questions answered by Torres.

In the past decade, marketing has gained access to a host of SaaS tools that optimize, simplify and generally improve marketing efforts. Some, like Google's suite of tools, or Facebook's advertising options, have been around for a few years now — an eternity in internet time — and you're probably already using them. Others are much newer, often with abstract names that don't necessarily reveal how powerful they really are.
What marketing tools should your company be using right now?

Onabotulinumtoxin A has been successfully used for more than 30 years in human medicine to treat a variety of indications. Alan Scott first used botulinum toxin in patients for the treatment on strabism in 1980. Further indication in the area of neurological spastic dystonias were added in the following years. In 1989, the medication was officially approved by the FDA under the name Botox for indications of strabismus and blepharospasm.
Technology is changing the world at a rapid pace, and education isn't exempt from the effects of that. Social media, in particular, is one of the greatest influences of our time — not just on young people, but on culture in general — encouraging social connections and enabling the exchange of thoughts and information on a global scale.
And although it has its drawbacks, there are also tremendous benefits when it comes to social networks — and let's face it, they're not going anywhere.
