Mood-Factory Launches Mood Engaging USDA Certified Line at Expo West

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

The Mood Factory, the creator of unique sensory wellness products, is proud to announce participation in Expo West Fresh Ideas Organic Marketplace on Thursday, March 5, 2015 from 12:30 p.m. -5:30 p.m. in Booth 44 at the white tent next to the Anaheim Marriott Hotel beside the Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.

The Mood Factory is showcasing its newest USDA certified product line based on how scents affect moods. The new line includes Vegan and all natural Mood-butters, Mood-crystals, Mood-scents, Mood-essences, Mood-candles, and Mood-deodorants. Each line is available in the following moods: Happiness, Energy, Passion, Renewal, Serenity, Tranquility, Creativity, and Sassy. The company partnered with North Coast Organics to launch the collection, and is excited about building off the Mood-lites brand with over 5 million of the current brand, Mood-lites, sold to date.

The intention of the new line is to synergistically combine colors and scents, as research suggests the more senses you engage to elicit a desired response, the more intense the impact. Our new Mood Factory products were created based on eight common colors and scents and their most closely associated moods, said Kathryn Goetzke, founder of The Mood Factory. Our aim is to educate consumers on what impacts how they feel, get them engaged in the present moment, and empower them to choose their own mood with certified organic consumer goods.

Goetzkes presented last year at ScentWorld, highlighting research about the art and science of color and scent engagement. Her initial studies of colors and moods were under color expert Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, who states: Research suggests that colors impact our moods. Color choice is scientific, psychological and emotional. This new line of sensory products is an innovative way to engage consumers for positively impacting their mood.

Nathan Morlin, founder of North Coast Organics, is excited about the new partnership. We are excited to combine our expertise in manufacturing natural, USDA organic certified, vegan products with the expertise of The Mood Factory. We believe in the philosophy of improving moods, and think with the combined scent and healing ingredients of our product lines, everyone wins. We are excited to get these into the hands of consumers and see their reaction.

About The Mood-Factory The Mood-Factory, http://www.themoodfactory.com, founded by Kathryn Goetzke in 2004, is based in Chicago IL. It first came to national prominence with the development of a new category of lighting with the launch of Mood-lites, http://www.mood-lites.com, available in multiple moods ranging from Happy to Passion to Serenity. The line is currently available at Lowes Home Improvement nationwide. Goetzke is also the founder of iFred (the International Foundation for Research and Education on Depression), http://www.ifred.org, a non-profit organization whose mission is to shine a positive light on depression and eliminate the stigma associated with the disease through prevention, research and education. Its goal is to ensure 100% of the 350 million people affected by depression seek and receive treatment. Part of the proceeds of this new line benefits the new Schools for Hope program, http://www.schoolsforhope.org, an innovative initiative based on research that Hope is teachable, aimed at teaching 5th graders exactly how to hone this skill.

At Spacemaker, we like to say If youve got a cot, weve got it covered, said Carway.

Clearlight Infrared Saunas by Sauna Works Launches New Sanctuary Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas

Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) November 11, 2014

Clearlight Saunas () (http://www.infraredsauna.com) has proudly unveiled its new Sanctuary Full Spectrum infrared sauna line which is the first Android App controlled infrared sauna using its unmatched True Spectrum() Full Spectrum infrared heaters.

The Sanctuary models feature adjustable Full Spectrum infrared heaters providing near infrared light and heat (for raising core body temperature, pain relief and skin purification), mid infrared (assisting in weight loss and improved circulation) and far infrared (for detoxification and overall wellness).

Unlike older traditional saunas that use hot rocks or steam, Clearlight Saunas () use infrared heat that heats your body directly to cleanse, relax and heal. According to Dr. Raleigh Duncan, founder and CEO; We all know that stress can actually cause disease, but what can the average person do to stay healthy and reverse the trend? Meditation, enjoying nature, exercise – these are a few solutions that come to mind. Recent research has shown that spending time in an infrared sauna helps your body move more into the parasympathetic state (rest, digest, heal) and away from stress which is the sympathetic state (fight, flight, freeze). Our modern life with all its demands keeps us in a state of ‘fight or flight’. Our bodies were never designed to stay in the sympathetic mode all the time, but rather for shorter periods to get out of a bad situation (think Tiger). Chronic ‘fight or flight’ can keep us perpetually sick, while we wonder why we aren’t getting any better. Most everyone suffers from chronic stress these days.”

The infrared saunas from Clearlight Saunas() were also clinically shown to aid in weight loss in a recent study at State University of New York, Binghamton. Subjects using the Clearlight brand of infrared saunas users lost an average of 4% body fat over an eight week period against the control group that did not. This was not water weight loss, but actual fat from just sitting in the sauna.

With beautiful Italian design, the Sanctuary Series also has an all glass front wall plus glass and cedar roof employing rich colored, sustainably sourced Western Red Canadian Cedar. Sitting inside gives an open feeling instead of the closed in feeling found in many other saunas. The Sanctuary sauna is easily assembled in an hour and comes complete with high fidelity stereo speakers with Bluetooth and MP3 audio connections as standard. Clearlight Saunas are surprisingly energy efficient, costing less than $ 10 for an entire month to operate if used everyday for a half an hour.

Chicagos First Sedan Service Launches New Customization Technology

Schiller Park, IL (PRWEB) October 08, 2014

Over its 20-year history, SMART Cars has looked to time-saving, client-friendly technological innovations to make travel smoother and life easier for dozens of Chicago-area companies and thousands of business and professional travelers worldwide. This year, SMART Cars Founder and CEO Stuart Rothstein is announcing three innovations to further set the company apart from the competition. This year, SMART Cars is learning to anticipate its clients unique travel preferences with some clever innovations.

SMART Cars isnt called SMART without reason. Looking back, the Chicago-based firm has always been the intelligent travelers choice in ground transportation. In the 1990s, SMART Cars was the first to discover the large, untapped market for upscale corporate/tourist travel in Chicago utilizing chauffeur-driven sedans to meet the needs of busy professionals.

In 2005, SMART Cars set the ground transportation industry standard with the introduction of its proprietary AVAN (Automatic Vehicle Arrival Notification) system software. Other companies rushed to copy AVAN because of its value in reducing travelers anxiety, often associated with the time of a vehicles arrival. AVAN does this by creating hi-speed connections among SMART Cars travelers, dispatchers and chauffeurs. And busy travelers value its thoughtful automated airport welcome messages and upcoming service reminders.

So whats new for 2014 and 2015? Its a big year for innovations. CEO Rothstein highlights three of them.

SMART Cars chauffeurs will have large-screen Apple iPad tablets equipped with specialized applications that give clients all kinds of benefits. Smart Cars Chauffeurs will use their iPad as a hand-held electronic billboard to greet clients at busy airports and hotels by name in large, illuminated letters visible from 30 feet away.

Additionally, the tablets will be used:

To instantly access the latest road conditions to save time and circumvent accidents and traffic hot spots.
To inform SMART Cars dispatch staff of a vehicles exact geographic location to minimize pickup location snafus.
To collect the client’s important travel related preferences for future personalized service.
To let clients, at their option, complete a confidential online review of the service they have just received. Client responses will be securely sent to an independent, third party company that provides SMART Cars with instantaneous feedback on and statistical trends.
The second important innovation coming soon is that SMART Cars will introduce a smart phone application that will allow for rapid reservation placement (each client’s profile is tied to the phone). Once a mobile pickup order has been placed, the client will be able to track the vehicles progress to the pickup location.

And third, SMART Cars will introduce new state-of-the-art Santa Cruz dispatch call center software. Santa Cruz integrates with both the new tablet and smart phone applications. This will enable quicker and easier reservation placement for those who enjoy speaking with their friendly customer service representatives (CSRs). In addition, it will enrich most of the current capabilities, such as sending a picture of the chauffeur and the vehicle along with the metrics currently being sent.

With these three innovations, SMART Cars promises to give clients an astonishing 99% traveler satisfaction rating on the following: accurate booking and ride-request information, on-time pick-ups and drop-offs, and personalized services honored and delivered. The SMART Cars team its call center, dispatchers and chauffeurs, are proud of its 20-year history as an industry leader and of its commitment to setting the gold standard for its loyal clients in the years to come.

About SMART Cars, Inc.

Since 1994, SMART Cars has been providing an exceptional transportation experience for its business and leisure travelers. Clients will enjoy reliable service, tastefully-appointed vehicles and professional, personalized attention from highly trained, certified and insured chauffeurs. For over 20 years SMART Cars remains the intelligent choice for business & leisure ground transportation needs around the world.
