Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a type of alternative medicine that uses essential oils and other aromatic plant compounds which are aimed at improving a person's health or mood. Combined with massage it controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones.


 The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. 


The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones. 

Sugar Foot Scrub

Salt dehydrates skin. That's why we use a foot scrub that features sugar. Its naturally hydrating properties soothe and smooth for a more refreshing experience. 

Combined with an essential oil like Lavender or Peppermint


Deep Muscle Therapy

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

NOTE:

Massage and Reflexology is not recommended for certain people;

  • infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds
  • immediately after surgery
  • immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor
  • prone to blood clots. There is a risk of blood clots being dislodged. If you have heart disease, check with your doctor before having a massage
  • pregnant women should check with their doctor first if they are considering getting a massage. Massage in pregnant women should be done by massage therapists who are certified in pregnancy massage.
  • massage should not be done directly over bruises, inflamed skin, unhealed wounds, tumors, abdominal hernia, or areas of recent fractures.  

Additionally;

  • don’t eat a heavy meal before the massage
  • if it's your first time at the clinic or spa, arrive at least 10 minutes early to complete the necessary forms. Otherwise, arrive 5 minutes early so you can have a few minutes to rest and relax before starting the massage.
