Trigger point  therapy

Focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure point, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathway of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques in order to release your trigger points.

*Can be painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transforming.

Acupressure

Based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body, according to TCM. Gradual pressure is applied to acupuncture points, instead of needles insertion, with the aim of clearing blockages, thus stimulating the body's natural self-curative abilities. Helps to correct functional imbalances, restore the flow of Qi, and circulation of blood, lymph.

Who doesn't like a good foot scrub, especially at the end of long day?

Hydrate and replenish the fresh feeling on your feet with my foot scrub therapy

Paraffin Hand treatment/Paraffin Wax therapy

Use of selected heated or melted Petroleum-based wax to soften and soothe skin, mainly hands and feet.  Your hands are submerged in the warm liquid wax of a paraffin hand spa, and the wax then hardens slightly on your skin and is removed, pilled away after a few minutes. This heat  treatment helps deep-moisturize and condition the skin on your hands/arms, and your nails and cuticles.

Benefits: The heat also helps temporarily soothe aching joints and increase circulation, which gives hand more youthful appearance.

Good for 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

This heat has a relaxing effect, helping calm and relieve stress, as warm bath does.

choice of Lavender, Orange-Peach, Eucalyptus, Unscented.
