Little Black Book Of Health, Beauty And Wellness Practitioners



Against the backdrop of the ongoing pandemic, one’s health and wellbeing feels more important than ever before. And while it is hard to travel to find winter sun or to visit a leading health practitioner on the other side of the world, sometimes the tweaks are as simple as a good night’s sleep, an inviting new yoga mat, or a restorative plant-based meal.

Heaven Skincare

Deborah Mitchell, the founder of Heaven Skincare, has launched a series of new vegan products. The brand’s new plant-based range contains a patented ingredient found in British nettles that works much in the same ways as the bee venom product on which Mitchell built her brand’s reputation. All the packaging in the range is recyclable and the bamboo lids were chosen based on the plant’s sustainability.

Fable Yoga

U.K-based yoga brand Fable has launched its first eco-friendly yoga mat collection alongside a new range of smaller mats for commuters. Created and tested by yogis, for yogis, all of their mats have been crafted using natural tree rubber and vegan PU. Created by a yoga practitioner, every detail has been considered to ensure the very best in performance. The mats are wider and longer than is standard, providing extra space to practice, and their non-slip technology ensures you won’t slip and slide. Add to that, the mats are biodegradable so won’t sit in a landfill when you’re eventually ready for a new one.

LYMA Laser

Lyma founder Lucy Goff has spoken at length about what makes her product unique, and it comes down to the fact that it has a 500-milliwatt laser inside, which is far more intense than other at-home lasers on the market. That targeted power paired with how the controlled dispersion causes beams of light to shoot straight into the skin up to eight millimeters deep, make this a powerful wellness tool. And unlike many competing beauty treatments, such as micro-needling, the laser doesn’t work off of a stress-damage response. Instead, the Lyma laser stimulates the skin to produce collagen, which generates new skin cells (along with other by-products like elastin). The impact? Transformative results combating wrinkles, pigmentation and scars.

London Serenity

Taking place the comfort of your own home, London Serenity offers a range of mobile beauty treatments and high-end fitness classes across London. A couple-owned business, the brand is trusted by leading luxury hotels, including, The Four Seasons, The Connaught, Claridges, The Ned and Shangri-La. Bid farewell to the aches and pains of working from home with a full-body massage, or feel glamorous again with any number of well-executed treatments, including blow dries, manicures and pedicures. And beyond beauty, London Serenity has recently launched a programme of fitness classes, taught either in person or over Zoom.


Working from home is that much more manageable if you build a bit of structure into the day. And participating in virtual fitness classes is one of the best antidotes. Offering yoga, low-impact cardio, barre and Pilates, Fly LDN is moving the bar on what is possible when it comes to Zoom fitness.

WIT x Reebok Nano X

WIT Fitness has united forces with Reebok for the third time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Nano, unveiling a reimagined and limited version of their training shoe. Stylish, sleek and functional, the WIT x Reebok Nano X proves the ultimate intersection of lifestyle and sport. With a look that has been inspired by the streets of Shoreditch, the Nano X is a unisex trainer designed for functional fitness fanatics. If it’s CrossFit, HIIT, an at-home stretch session, or a combination of all three, this multi-faceted shoe is designed to support your movement regardless the workout technique.

Veronique Gabai

Veronique Gabai, French of course, launched her namesake fragrance brand to capture the spirit of the Côte d’Azur. The brand’s new St Tropez pendant blends our love of jewellery and our passion for perfumes. An intricately crafted metal case that opens with an upward flick of the thumb, revealing a spray case of scent. Choose between golden finish—a nod to the sun— and silver finish—a nod to the moon and wear it like a talisman around your neck.

Power Repair

With a passion for plants, Power Repair founder was first introduced to the healing power of natural elements by her mother in Coolidge, Arizona. Today, her brand’s mission is to produce the highest-quality products with the finest ingredients at a reasonable price, using only recyclable, earth-friendly packaging. Manufactured, packaged, and shipped directly from the brand’s factory in New Mexico, each product in the range has been developed with the highest degree of quality control and always with efficacy front of mind.

Immune Support By Leapfrog

Leapfrog Immune is a new supplement that harnesses the power of natural lactoferrin—a protein that has potent anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. For the past two years, lifestyle journalist Stephanie Drax has collaborated with leading scientists and wellness experts to create her debut supplement. With experts on her team including Renée Elliott, the founder of Planet Organic and pharmacist Dr Hamid Merchant, this citrus-flavoured chewable tablet helps support the body in its first line of defence against bacteria and illness.

Detoxifying Mask By Volition

Crafted with sustainably harvested black silt from fresh Finnish lakes, this gel face mask helps to detox, hydrate and balance complexion all in one go. And what’s more, Volition truly is revolutionising beauty with its crowdsourcing business model. Take control of your daily routine by telling Volitions’s co-founders precisely what products you want and why. Filing gaps in your beauty shelf, if there is enough demand, the brand will bring those requested products to market.

Turbo Tong

If you only have five minutes, the extra-long barrel on the Turbo Tong is perfect for creating perfect waves, even in the longest hair. The largest hair tong with an arm on the U.K. market, the extra-long barrel allows more hair to be tonged in one go. Quick to set-up, the tong reaches its maximum heat in just 30 seconds. And more than just a curling tool, the aluminium barrel has ceramic coating emitting negative ions that leave damaged hair looking revitalised.

Remedio Naturale

The perfect mid-morning or evening solution, mix Remedio Naturale into hot water for an immunity boosting and delicious hot drink or spoon it onto porridge or toast. A ginger and lemon infusion and a sustainable bi-product from the fermentation process of making Agua de Madre, the ingredient list is simple: organic lemons, organic root ginger and organic cane sugar.

Perfect Night By Revive

Dark spots and sun damage can have a long-lasting impact on the skin. The new RéVive Perfectif dark spot cream seeks to combat precisely that. As well as working to even out skin tone, it protects against further sun damage, looking after the skin long term. Powerful, fast-working and hydrating, it’s a sure-fire bathroom vanity favourite.

Wild Deodorant

Wild is a new, sustainable natural deodorant delivered straight to your door. Aluminium free with compostable, plastic-free refills and 100% percent effective, the package slides directly through your letterbox each time you run out. With a mission to combat throwaway culture, this sustainably made, all-natural product is kind both to the environment and your skin.


Ever an enterprising sector, during lockdown many restaurants have swapped sit-down service for delivery. Over the past few months, London-based Will Moxham and Hilary Kennedy quit their jobs and founded Planthood. Prepared by chefs and cooked at home by you in minutes, Planthood offers a weekly menu of three restaurant-quality plant-based meals, delivered to doors nationwide. Offering a weekly changing seasonal menu and presented in compostable and recyclable packaging, the meals are easy to order, quick to cook and delicious to eat.


Berlin-based wellness brand specialising in CBD and hemp-based products, Vaay has been formulated by a team of doctors, biologists and researchers. The idea behind the brand is to create innovative products that work to ease stressed-out bodies and minds. Combing warming ginger essence with nourishing jojoba oil, the brand’s signature massage oil is both soothing and moisturising.

La Bouche Rouge X La Perla

What is better than a new product range from your favourite brand? One that marks a collaboration between two iconic brands, of course. United in their love of beauty, design and craftsmanship, La Perla and La Bouche Rouge have collaborated on a new line of lipsticks. Packaged in a limited-edition leather case, expect a selection of La Bouche Rouge’s best-selling shades.


Provence-born and Paris-trained, Frédéric Fekkai opened his first salon in New York’s iconic Bergdorf Goodman Department Store. More recently, he has launched Fekkai, the brand’s cleanest and most sustainable hair care. But more than that, the products aim to deliver salon performance but using natural ingredients. The slick range comes in a huge variety of formulations, including a colour extend and a volume range.

ANMC Holistic Health offers natural paths to wellness | Morrison County Record




Amanda Plevell feels she has been divinely led through her experiences — both the good and bad — and is on a mission to use them to help others.

Just six years ago, in 2015, she was in the midst of a years-long battle with Crohns Disease, ulcerative colitis, thyroid imbalance and both depression and anxiety. Medical interventions did not go well. In fact, steroid induced myopathy and neuropathy left her in a wheelchair with the outlook that she would likely never walk again. She was in a dark place, to the point she had her will written and spelled out what she wanted to happen with her children in the event of her death.

She decided she wasn’t going to settle for a limited life.

“Because my body was turned through the mill of autoimmune, I needed to understand for myself,” Plevell said. “I learned so much that could be happening with my body, and it just made me want to learn more and what science said about it.”

She studied so much that she became a board certified natural health practitioner. In the process, she saw major improvements in her own health.

“I ran a marathon six months after I was in a wheelchair,” Plevell said. “… My life has had a lot of twists and turns.”

That brings her to the present day, where she is planning to open ANMC Holistic Health, LLC, at 114 Kidder St. in Little Falls. From there, she hopes to help people — with a focus on those with autoimmune disease — by creating optimal health and vitality through education and training the body to use its own natural abilities as a mode to achieve wellness.

ANMC will begin taking appointments in July, after a “soft opening” on June 14. It will offer new technologies such as Styku, Biostrap and continuous health monitoring apps, a lymphatic Presso flow, far infrared sauna, fit bay, cranio sacral therapy and massage. Weekly “Wednesday Wisdom” classes, along with quarterly two-day and week-long immersive education events will also be available.

Plevell stressed that the therapies offered at ANMC Holistic Health are not meant to compete with acute medical care. Instead, she wants what she’s offering to work in conjunction with what medical doctors are offering.

“We don’t treat, heal, cure, prescribe or diagnose, and we don’t operate on the disease threat risk model,” she said. “That’s just not our lane. I say that we like to create an environment conducive to healing, and so it’s a lot of education and training for the body to get out of that defense response state so common to rejection illnesses. It’s a great fit, because it empowers people to have a say over how they feel and what happens in their body, and they don’t have to make the choice to choose between medicine or alternative modalities. What we do supports all of the puzzle pieces.”

Much of what she offers also revolves around nutrition education, something she believes is greatly underutilized. According to Plevell, 90% of current diseases are considered lifestyle preventable diseases. She said knowing how genes are turned on and off with different lifestyle factors, such as nutrition and exercise, can play a major role in a person’s overall well-being.

She is a believer, because she has seen it work. Aside from her own story, she has also witnessed the benefits for her niece, Tenley. Diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes delayed development, problems with speech and balance, intellectual disability and seizures, no one had ever discussed nutrition or medication management with Tenley’s family.

“I just taught them some principles surrounding diet that they could bring up with her providers so that her food could be used as a support vehicle, working alongside their efforts with her medications,” Plevell said. “It’s a great partnership that helped her finally sleep at night with reduced seizure activity.”

Plevell said she couldn’t offer all she does at ANMC without the help of her team, all of whom she said are passionate, dedicated and truly care about their clients. Two of them, she said, were even former clients of hers who expressed interest in helping people in the same way she was.

It was another piece of divine intervention Plevell said she couldn’t ignore. Her team includes: Jason Plevell, Melanie Halter, Jessica Scherping, Samantha Petersen and Crystal Benson.

“At some point, they too felt a calling over their lives, and that same call pulled us together,” Plevell said. “They’re just wonderful people, and I couldn’t be more grateful.”

Plevell believes what she is bringing to Little Falls will be the norm in the not-so-distant future in terms of how functional wellness and nutrition work together with other modalities in the health care field. She believes all are necessary within the whole health landscape, and someday soon people wanting to enter the field won’t have to choose between health or wellness. Instead, they’ll decide if they want to help people by teaching them how to stay well, or if they want to treat people who are injured or ill.

“People are wanting to feel well in their lives,” she said. “They want to feel happy and passionate and fulfilled. They want to understand how to be healthy and stay there. They’re wanting healthy food options in our restaurants and better systems where they can utilize their finances for all options of modalities that could support their well-being, and they want to learn about those options. And they want their healthcare team to have options for them and be educated in these options and have real conversations about what is right for them.”

Plevell has always had a desire to help and educate people. Prior to becoming a natural health practitioner, she had a degree in teaching and counseling.

Her current calling allows her to help people through education, something she was inspired to do as she navigated her own journey through everything life threw her way.

“I love each and every one of these people that I work with,” Plevell said. “People need to feel empowered; they need hope. People need to be accepted and loved, and to know that is a significant part of their well-being and important to the healing process.”

“We really want to grow and earn our place as a pillar of support for our community and the health outcome of the whole,” Plevell said.
