Muscular System

The joys of a massage or the relief of an adjustment?and the stresses of physical work?play out partly in the muscles. Learn just what pumps the body up with Groupon?s guide to the muscular system.

The human body has more than 630 muscles keeping it upright and mobile. They make up almost half its weight and power the movements of the bones, the blood, and even the food in the stomach. Perhaps the most familiar muscles are those seen in bodybuilding contests and facial-expression contests: the skeletal, or voluntary, muscles. They?re attached to our bones and controlled by our brains, which zap them with electrical signals to cause their fibers to contract. During a muscle contraction, filaments inside the muscle fibers slide together, stacking up on one another so that the larger fiber shortens. In shortening, the fibers gain thickness?a phenomenon we notice as flexing. Whatever muscles do, they accomplish by this single pulling action. If a bicep (part of a category of muscles known as flexors) flexes to lift a barbell, it needs a tricep (an extensor), pulling in the opposite direction, to bring the arm back down.

The other two types of muscles are smooth muscles and cardiac muscles, and both are beyond our conscious control. Cardiac muscles control the beating of the heart, contracting the chambers to push blood throughout the body. But the blood doesn?t ride to the toes on that momentum alone. Lining the blood vessels are smooth muscles that help push it along. These also line the esophagus, stomach, and intestine to move food through the digestive track, and can even help regulate the body?s temperature by opening and closing capillaries near the skin surface, all without conscious effort. The subconscious brain is also happy to turn muscles to ends beyond their apparent purpose: for instance, what we experience as shivering from cold is simply the brain causing the muscles to spasm so they will generate heat and keep your blood and any baby chicks in your coat pockets warm.

Part historic landmark and part day spa, Steamboat Hot Springs Healing Center and Spa has always been about one thing: the water. As stated in Healthy Beginnings Magazine, the site probably earned its name from Mark Twain, who is said to have likened its rising columns of steam with the steamboats he used to captain on the Mississippi River. The picturesque vapors emanated from what was the third-largest geyser in the United States, rivaled in majesty only by Old Faithful and the ears of an angry Yosemite Sam. Native people, settlers, and travelers seeking healing?including President Ulysses S. Grant?partook of the up to 80-foot-high waters before the geyser and springs dried up after an earthquake in 1900. Osteopath Dr. Edna Carver bought the property 25 years later and drilled down into the earth to once again unleash the artesian waters.

Today, temperature-controlled mineral water from the hot springs flows into soaking tubs and the steam room, nourishing skin with rare sulfate minerals including borax, silica, and magnesium. The center?which Kathika.com has named one of the best spas in Reno?keeps the tradition of healing alive with modernized treatments ranging from soothing massages to light, color, and sound therapy.

Blowouts: Hot Air with a Purpose

Sure, you can blow-dry your hair at home, but it likely won?t be quite the same as a salon blowout. Find out why with Groupon?s look into the blowout?s sleek mystique.

There?s something like old-time alchemy going on every time someone gets a blowout. Take a couple of elemental ingredients?wind and heat?combine them with a professional?s trained hand and strong wrist, and you end up with something precious: movie-star hair. The actual process is simple: the stylist washes the hair, then blow-dries it in small sections to the client?s specifications, often using a round brush to create smooth volume. The result might be straight, wavy, or purposely tousled, and it can be such a look changer that some women refrain from washing their hair for days afterward to maintain the glamour. Many people find the service so valuable they return to the salon for it between haircuts, sometimes several times a week.

In some ways, this practice is a throwback to the beauty parlors of the past, where women would drop in weekly to have their hair styled and set. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis used to get her hair blown out three times a week in the 1960s and 1970s; today, reportedly, so do celebs such as Kate Middleton and Gwyneth Paltrow. To keep up with demand, blowout-only salons have popped up in the last few years, dedicating all their chairs to the service.
