Expert Services in Skin care and Body Therapies
Massage is the oldest recorded therapeutic remedy and health practice to exist. It was found in all of the ancient world's civilizations. Egyptian and Chinese medicine books mention massage and it's health enhancing effects. Hippocrates, known as the "Father of Medicine", wrote: "Rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose, and loosen a joint that is too rigid".
Massage had been proven to calm the nervous system. Our sense of touch is the first sense to develop. There are about five millions touch receptors in our skin sending messages to our brain. Body's initial response to massage is to relax and de-stimulate. Even a light touch massage can lower blood pressure and reduce the heart rate. Touch also signals the brain to produce endorphins, mood enhancing and pain suppressing neuropeptides. Nervous system constantly sends messages that determine proper functioning throughout our body. Stress is usually the first factor which interferes with that communication. All the nerve endings in our skin (about 50 per each square inch) and muscles are soothed by massage and internal body communication can function properly even during stressful phases of our lives.
Massage also helps to prevent future pain conditions by dealing with the cause of the problem and eliminating it. Study has shown that 80% of the pain is coming from soft tissue injuries, and over 74% is directly attributed to the Trigger Points (areas of high neurological activity).
Through it's many variations, therapeutic massage can promote health and enhance body's own self healing mechanisms. It can help relieve stress and muscle tension, lessen lower back pain, relieve arthritis and fatigue, lower high blood pressure and relieve migraine symptoms. Massage can also stimulate the release of endorphins, body’s natural pain killers.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE
60 min … $80
The lymph system is a natural body's defense system against infection and disease. It is made up of lymph vessels, lymph nodes, lymphocytes - specialized immune cells. The lymph nodes produce immune cells that fight infection while filtering lymph fluid to remove foreign material. When bacteria or other immune threats are present in lymph, lymph nodes increase production of white blood cells - infection fighters.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is one of the best things you can do to help your own body to help itself. Lymph drainage massage is a technique used to help increase lymph flow, body's drainage system essential for cleansing and filtering out toxins and bacteria. Increased lymph flow improves metabolism and removes harmful toxins from the tissues. Lymphatic massage utilizes a very light pressure combined with soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes.
Since lymphatic system has no "pump" on its own to move lymph through the system, bodily movement and breathing function help to move liquid lymph through the vessels and the filters of the lymph nodes.
For people who get too little exercise or eat processed foods, the lymphatic system can easily be overtaxed. That results the body to be susceptible to infection and disease.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage can increase the volume of lymph flow by as much as 20 times. By getting this treatment done on regular basis you are helping your body to stay strong and healthy.
