In this day and time we are confronted with demanding jobs, meeting family needs, caring for elderly parents, not to mention air pollution, processed foods…the list goes on.  All of these are stressors that create inflammation in our bodies causing physical and mental pain. Our muscles hurt and our skin takes on the signs of aging.   

Both regular professional massage and professional skin care,  (meaning treatment at least once a month) along with exercise and good nutrition are worthy components to a regimen designed for maintaining health and vibrancy throughout our lifetime.In this day and time we are confronted with demanding jobs, meeting family needs, caring for elderly parents, not to mention air pollution, processed foods…the list goes on.  All of these are stressors that create inflammation in our bodies causing physical and mental pain.

Did you know that therapeutic massage offers tremendous physical and mental benefits to your body?   In fact, all ten body systems are enhanced by just 15 minutes of massage. Starting with relaxing the nervous system. This in turn improves digestion, respiration, circulation and lowers blood pressure.  In addition, massage can aid in increased range of motion, decreased pain, and improve localized cellular healing.

Did you know that the skin is our largest organ?  Our skin is ever responding to our environment, what we put on it, and what we put into our body.  All this contributes to accumulated dirt and dead skin cells on the surface that can cause unwanted blemishes, rough texture, fine lines and premature wrinkles. Daily cleansing may not be enough. Getting regular facials help tone, tighten, and deep cleanse your skin to allow for better penetration of the nutrients and products applied. This will in turn make for healthy vibrant skin.  The professional can also recommend the best products to use between facials for the best results for you.
