Monday 6th June, friends of ours celebrated WA Day at Elizabeth Quay (the children loved the circus performers and the grownups loved the foodie treats). Truth be told, the Velhos are yet to visit Perth’s newest tourist venue. Despite this year’s invites we spent most of our day at home – so precious is the time we get to relax and just enjoy being together.
I jest, of course! My boys were happy doing their own thing – one curled up in front of the TV with stand-up comedy, the other on his mobile “Just chilling out with friends, Mum!” and Agnelo gravitating to his passion: Prana. Sigh… so much for family togetherness :-)
MY MENU? A luxurious bath at day’s end (some things are non-negotiable). I hope your day ended so well ~ Saroj, PRANA
YOUR MENU JUNE 2016
Now is the time to banish winter blues with a warming foot massage to improve joint mobility to the toes, feet, ankles and calfs. On warmer days and evenings your strappy shoes will reveal soft, smooth and supple feet.
Anyone who’s waited at any inner city intersection will know just how sharp the wind can be. You could hail a cab – or you could nourish and protect your hair from within…
Or go for gold and combine both treatments with…
PRANA’S SIGNATURE GOLD FACIAL
Q&A (letters from YOUR desk)
Q. Hi Saroj. My husband is going to France on business during August and I am really excited to be going with him this time. What an excuse to revisit the sights and go shopping:-) The trouble is I have some cellulite. Can you help me get rid of it or at least make it less obvious before my trip? I want to laze on the beaches while I’m there!
Thanks, Jane. May 2016
A. How lovely! Jane the short answer is “yes I can help you.” Fortunately, we have some time up our sleeve so my first advice is to come into the salon and allow me to assess your situation, because you have a number of options depending on age, diet and other factors (I’ll go through them all with you).
In the meantime, have a look at the short blog article I added recently on CELLULITE. It will provide you with some background info and allow us to focus on what will bear fruit and get you in shape for your trip ~ Saroj

Feet first – making his way in the world
Meet Angelo, our eldest son. Angelo completed his Bachelor of Podiatric Medicine at UWA and is now Senior Podiatrist at Mount Lawley Physiotherapy and Podiatry.
Like many young people, he worked while studying to augment the theory ‘in practice’ – a sound idea which gave him valuable experience and produced a special interest in paediatrics and sports related injuries. Gentle and meticulous (like his mother), Angelo broadened his scope along the way to include the issues many diabetic patients face with foot care and nail problems – including fungal nail infections and ingrown nails. He became their foot friend!
Speaking of feet… after work, Angelo gravitates to the gym or lets off steam running full tilt and kicking the ball around (he plays high amateur level in soccer as well as cricket). All of which lends itself to the meticulous care and preparation he provides his patients. Whether it’s his own training program or yours, he understands the training techniques and physical requirements associated with a variety of sporting disciplines. He is a keen West Ham supporter (we blame his UK heritage for that one!). When he’s relaxing rather than running around the pitch you’ll find him engrossed in stand-up comedy on TV… just a normal young man who sings out to his mother “where’s the snacks?!”
Clearly, we are very proud of his accomplishments but more importantly, we know that our son has your best interests at heart. Next time you are in the Mt. Lawley area just ask him for a holistic, comprehensive treatment plan – he will be delighted to assist with any biomechanical problems, sporting injuries and prescription orthotics to keep you pain free so you too can perform at your peak!
Angelo Velho – Bachelor of Podiatric Medicine (UWA)
Special Skills: Podiatry related dry-needling, therapeutic ultrasound, taping methods, stretching and on-the-spot orthotic therapy.
