Top 5 Reasons to drink Pure Simple Juice…

Why we all could use a little more Pure Simple Juice

* Living enzymes. Made fresh our juice has not been pasteurized therefore you benefit from all of the living enzymes that promote health and good digestion.
* Organic produce. No need to add more pesticides and chemicals into your body, we use all organic or grown-with organic practice ingredients.
* Support local farmers. As we got our start at the market much of our produce comes from farmers at the market & surrounding area to bring you the season’s best Oregon/Washington produce.
* You need more fruits & vegetables in your life. As most of us do! Each bottle of juice provides you literally pounds of fresh fruits & vegetables(estimated 3-4 servings of produce). So you get a huge load of antioxidant, vitamin & mineral goodness with every sip.
* It is amazingly delicious. Our juice is hand-pressed in small batches, I’ll just let the juice speak for itself.

Pure Simple Juice Cleanse + Belly Massage = A New Radiant You!

What is more relaxing than massage? Belly massage! Angela Severson, licensed massage therapist, treats you from your esophagus down through your large intestine and during this journey provides you the ultimate relaxing experience. 

A note from Angela on massage & the role in a Pure Simple Juice Cleanse ; 

          Congratulations!  By choosing to participate in a cleanse, you are honoring and attuning to your body’s needs.  Pure Simple Juice is a lovely way to provide your organs wholesome nutrients and support for detoxifying.

The motivation to cleanse comes to each of us at different times and for a variety of reasons, from a desire to maximize general wellness to addressing and healing complicated illness and unrest in the body.  As you eliminate the foods that tax your system and begin to add healing nutrients, you are being transformed from the inside-out.  This process can at times be bumpy, resulting in a number of challenging “detox” symptoms.

Abdominal massage supports you from the outside-in. Nourishing and gentle manipulation of the organs assists your body’s natural detoxification process.  In addition abdominal massage supports your nervous system, giving it the gentle nudge it needs to relax, so your organs can continue doing their job during the cleansing process.

Last but not least, abdominal massage allows you to feel a deeper gratitude for the beautiful and vital work your organs do for you every minute of everyday.

Pure Simple Juice Cleanse participants will receive $10 off the regular price when they book a Belly Massage with Angela Severson, LMT. Please call to schedule and make sure to mention Pure Simple Juice!

Angela Severson is a LMT, practicing in NE Portland.  Her passion is to support her clients in their journey home- in their bodies.  Using her extensive training in both Biodynamic and Abdominal Massage, she listens to the stories her clients’ bodies are telling, and provides the nurturance they need for self-healing.  Her personal experience with digestive “dis-ease” have lead her to add abdominal massage as her area of expertise.  This method of massage is particularly helpful during cleansing, as it heals our core selves.

Pure Simple Allergy Relief

Its that time of year again…and it is beautiful! But as Spring blooms around us for those with seasonal allergies it can be intolerable. Try one of our Pure Simple Juice seasonal blends for bit of relief (or just because you love our juice!).

Honey Almond Milk* (Almonds, Oregon Local Honey, Oregon Local Bee Pollen, Sea Salt, Water)

A lovely version of our signature almond milk with a touch of natural sweetness and full of allergy defense.

Pear Nettle Juice* (Pear, Apple, Nettles, Spinach, Lemon)

A light green juice to boost your defenses,  featuring Oregon-grown nettles, an herbal alternative to ease your symptoms and a bunch of Vitamin C to increase immunity.

*All ingredients are organic & sourced locally. There is little scientific evidence that nettles/local bee pollen/local honey prevent allergies but antidotally have been shown to help relieve symptoms. Why not give it a try?
