All massages come with essential oil aromatherapy and relaxing music therapy.
Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.
Massage can soothe your baby and help her to sleep. Massage has many added benefits for your baby, including improving weight gain, aiding digestion, improving circulation, and easing teething pain. Massage is a great way for you and your partner to bond with your baby, and you may find it relaxing, too!
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that's mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.
The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing.
Each organic facial has a 4 step process that includes a deep cleanse, exfoliating scrub, organic face mask, and facial massage. The deep cleanse removes any sweat, dirt, and makeup from your face. The exfoliating scrub removes dead skin from the face. The organic face mask hydrates and replenishes the skin. The facial massage helps improve blood circulation to the face, tighten skin, and reduce puffiness. Afterwards, you will feel like a glowing goddess!
I offer facial and body waxing. Each waxing comes with a pre-epilation cleanse, hard wax, slow grow lotion, and baby oil. The pre-epilation cleanse removes any, sweat, dirt, or makeup from the skin. The waxing is done with hard wax beads instead of cloth waxing strips. This makes for a smoother, more precise application, less painful hair removal process, and longer lasting results. The slow grow lotion helps the hair to grow back at a slower rate. The baby oil removes any wax left behind.
