Welcome

 I will be closed from Christmas until around the beginning of March. I will be having surgery on my neck and need to take some time to get fully recovered before coming back to work. If you would like any work done before this please go online and schedule soon! Thank you for all your support and I look forward to seeing you again! 


There are some great massage professionals I can direct you to until I am back on my feet again. Please either email or text me that you would like someone else to see and I will get you the information that you need.


Yours in Healing

Treatments

Therapeutic Massage

 

Each massage is customized for your needs and various  techniques and pressures can be used. These could include deep tissue, hot stone, stretching, trigger point release, etc.

This massage is done to manipulate the muscles and limbs to ease tension and reduce pain. Massage can be a part of physical therapy or practiced on its own. It can be effective for reducing the symptoms of, disorders of, or pain in the muscles and nervous system.

Raindrop Therapy

 Raindrop Therapy uses a sequence of essential oils that are immune enhancing, support the body's natural defenses, as well as the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous, and other body systems. These oils, which are high in antioxidants, are also mood elevating and antiseptic, creating an unfavorable environment for harmful viruses and bacteria that can hibernate in the body. The oils are dispensed in little drops from a height of about six inches above the back, which is where Raindrop Technique gets its name. They are then massaged along the spine and back muscles. They are also applied to the feet.

The whole process takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour and may continue to work in the body for up to one week following a Raindrop Session, with possible realignment and bodily adjustment taking place during this time.

**Raindrop Therapy is not a cure-all or a magic bullet. A healthy balanced body is the result of a well-rounded program of exercise and proper nutrition. Health is everything we do, say, hear, see, and eat. The Raindrop Technique is only one tool to help restore balance in the body that will result in good health. 

Salt Body Scrub

 Gently rubbing the skin in circular motions with a salt scrub removes dead skin cells in a process known as exfoliation. Dead skin cells harden with age. The longer they lie on the surface of the skin, the harder they get. This layer of skin will become thicker and thicker until it is finally removed. Layers of dead skin cells can make the skin look dry and flaky; exfoliation with a salt scrub reveals the moist, shiny skin hidden underneath.  The abrasive action associated with salt scrubs invigorates the skin and helps to improve circulation. Improved circulation gives skin a natural glow. Scrubbing with salt also helps to remove bacteria from the skin and unclog pores. Salt has antiseptic qualities, and when applied to the skin it may help kill bacteria and reduce inflammation along with any itching and pain associated with bacterial-related skin disease.  Exfoliating with a salt scrub not only removes dead skin cells and increases circulation, but it also encourages regeneration. Sloughing away dead skin cells actually promotes the growth of healthy new cells. This regeneration process tightens the skin, giving it a firmer and younger-looking appearance. Skin regeneration also reduces skin discoloration, evening out skin tone and improving texture.  

Paraffin Treatment

 Paraffin wax has been shown to treat conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia among others. A wax treatment acts as a type of thermotherapy, or heat therapy, that helps treat these conditions by increasing blood flow, relaxing muscles and reducing stiffness in joints. 

**While last minute appointments are always welcome please understand that paraffin treatments need 24 hour notice. Thank you!

Skin Firming Body Wrap

This starts with a full body scrub and application of  BIOTONE® Firmi-Sea Mud The most effective treatment for smoothing, stimulating, and detoxifying skin and body, Firmi-Sea Body Mud contains rich concentrations of minerals and vitamins from the ocean’s depths. It contains five different varieties of algae harvested off the Brittany Coast. This potent mix submerges the body in pure marine actives to stimulate, firm and moisturize. While helping achieve a state of deep relaxation, this intricate complex of ingredients works to promote decongestion and waste elimination for better skin appearance and smoothness, protect and regulate cellular moisture exchanges, rebalance and restore proper hydration, and prevent future skin damage by fighting free radicals. You are wrapped for 20 minutes . Then mud removal is done in a private shower with a lotion application to follow. Plan for 2 hours with this treatment.

Chair Massage

Running short on time but really need a little work on the shoulders, neck or back? Chair massage can give benefits in this situation. Please remember that this is not a full therapeutic session and you may need more than chair work allows for.
