SWEDISH BODY MASSAGE is the use of hands and massage oil to lubricate the skin, in combination of various movements used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body for both local and overall effects and benefits.
The techniques are based on the Swedish system, use the application of pressure to either soothe or stimulate. The movements range from gentle stroking to invigorating friction, depending on the desired effect.
Benefits and Effects:
Massage has shown to be great in reducing muscular pain, joint stiffness, and improving body functions. Various techniques warm up the muscle tissue, release tension and gradually breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesions. Massage has been used for relaxation, stimulation, rehabilitation of the whole body or part of it, promotion and restoration of health. It promotes suppleness of the muscles, improves circulation and reduces stress. Massage stimulates and activates systems of the body. It therefore encourages improved circulation, aids digestion, waste removal and neural communication, invigorates and relaxes muscles thus preventing spasm and stiffness, speeds up dead skin removal from the surface and promotes cell regeneration.
REFLEXOLOGY is massage of the feet or hands that aims to promote healing and help to balance the body itself. Reflexology is based on the principle that the feet have ‘reflex’ points that correspond to the various structures, glands and organs throughout the body. By massaging or stimulating the reflexes using specific thumb, finger and hand techniques there is a direct effect on the corresponding organ.
Any health problem in the body can usually be detected in the corresponding area of the foot. The left foot generally relates to any organs, glands, parts of the body etc on the left side of the body while the right foot relates to any organs, parts of the body etc on the right side of the body.
Reflexology can effectively treat a wide range of disorders including: stress, circulation problems, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, reproductive problems, sleep problems, lack of energy, edema (swelling), emotional problems.
AROMATHERAPY involves the use of essential oils which derive from aromatic plants for physical, physiological and psychological benefits. An Aroma therapist blends therapeutic essential oils especially for each individual. Essential oils can be massaged into the skin, added to bath water or vaporized in an oil burner. Different smells (aromas), and the chemical constituents of the oils, can stimulate the desired responses. Aromatic plants oils can stimulate, balance, uplift, soothes and calms.
Aromatherapy can be of benefit as a form of preventative health care. I believe the release of stress and tension can allow the body’s own healing process to begin.
Aromatherapy may be used to treat a wide range of physical, emotional and mental condition including: insomnia, arthritis, depression, menstrual problems, regulates hormones, stimulate immune system, helps with digestive problems, eczema, headaches, reduce inflammation, relax muscles, increase blood circulation and increase a feeling of well being.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE is a traditional Indian technique of treating the upper back, neck, shoulders, face and scalp, with the recipient remaining in sitting position.
How does it work?
The head, neck and shoulders are the most important energy centers within your body. Think for a moment, when you are stressed or angry where does the tension seem to accumulate? Yes, in the neck, shoulders or in the form of a headache. In extreme cases it can manifest itself as hair loss! Indian Head Massage involves working with a firm and gentle rhythm to help unknot blockages and so relieve this uncomfortable tension. The effect however, is not only physical; it works on your emotions too, calming the spirit and aiding relaxation.
The face and scalp are very sensitive as they are full of nerve endings. This makes them very receptive to touch; massaging the head and hair is deeply soothing and relaxing.

Bio Sculpture Manicure
TUINA CHINESE MEDICAL ACUPRESSURE is an Oriental Bodywork Therapy that has been used in China for 5,000 years. Tuina uses the traditional Chinese medical theory of the flow of Qi through the meridians as its basic therapeutic orientation. Through the application of massage and manipulation techniques Tuina seeks to establish a more harmonious flow of Qi through the system of channels and collaterals, allowing the body the naturally heal itself.
Tuina methods include the use of: hand techniques to massage the soft tissue (muscles and tendons) of the body, acupressure techniques to directly affect the flow of Qi, and manipulation techniques to realign the musculoskeletal and ligamentous relationships (bone-setting).
What to expect from Tuina session?
In a typical session, the client, wears loose clothing and no shoes, patients sit on a chair or lies on a couch. The practitioner examines the specific problems of the client and begins to apply a specific treatment protocol. Tuina is a medical treatment and as with all TCM modalities, a case history and diagnosis will be done prior to treatment. The massage is usually done using gentle to quite firm pressure using palms, thumbs, fingers, and elbows, added to this are various stretches. It can be more vigorous than other forms of massage. As with other body therapies you may leave a little sore, light-headed or supercharged after your treatment, but mostly patients always feel better after Tuina.
The major focus of application is upon specific pain sites, acupressure points, energy meridians, and muscles and joints. Sessions last from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Depending on the specific problems of the client, they may return for additional treatments. The client usually feels relaxed but energized by the treatment.
Tuina's simplicity and focus on specific problems, rather than a more generalized treatment, make it both an excellent alternative and/or extension of the Swedish-style massage.
Tuina is well suited for the treatment of specific musculoskeletal disorders and chronic stress-related disorders of the digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems. Tuina is not especially useful for those seeking a mild, sedating and relaxing massage since it tends to be more tasks focused than other types of bodywork.
STONE THERAPY MASSAGE
What to expect during a Hot Stone Massage. Massage therapist begins the treatment by applying oil to the body, which allows the hot stones to glide smoothly along the muscles. The treatment will usually consist of the therapist placing heated basalt stones of various shapes/sizes onto the client's body (for safety, most of the time these 'placement' stones won't be in direct contact with the skin, instead they will be placed onto a towel to buffer the heat). The massage therapist always holds the stones first before touching them to client body, which ensures that the temperature will not be too hot. These stones are placed onto different points (chakras, energy points, sore muscles, etc).
Whilst these placement stones are warming and activating specific areas (along spine, in the palms of hand, on belly, or between toes to improve the flow of energy in the body), the therapist will take several other heated stones and begin massaging a different area of the body. The heat from the stones is released deep into the muscles, greatly enhancing the massage. It is said that one stroke with a heated stone is equivalent to ten normal massage strokes!
How the stones are heated?
Stones are heated in a special electric stone heater which is filled with water. Water is typically heated to 50-53 degrees Celsius (122-127 degrees Fahrenheit).
What are Basalt Stones?
These are volcanic rocks found on the exterior of a volcano. They are formed from the hot lava that spills out of the volcano as it erupts. Over many thousands of years they are exposed to the elements (sun, wind, heat and cold conditions, rain and pressure) these factors press the minerals together forming a concentrated mass of minerals and crystals. These mineral black volcanic rocks are well known for their heat absorption and retention properties, which makes them a perfect choice for stone therapy.
What are Marble Stones?
Some therapists will also incorporate cold stones (usually marble) into their treatment which, although not quite as relaxing as the heated stones, do have a part to play for many conditions. Cool marble stones are occasionally used during a treatment, particularly if there is inflammation.
Marble stones are cut and polished to various shapes and sizes and designated to work specific body areas. They can be used on their own or in combination with heated stones. On their own, they act as a powerful decongestant to help diffuse swelling and to encourage blood flow. When used with hot stones, the resulting vasodilatation and constriction encourages nourishing and healing of the tissues.
Cold Stones Benefits:
- Decreases inflammation and acute injuries
- Relieves pain and congestion to blocked sinus areas
- Relieves puffiness and dark circles to the eyes and improves skin tone to the face.

SUGARING PRODUCTS ARE VERY DIFFERENT FROM WAXING PRODUCTS
Sugaring unwanted facial and body hair requires an entirely different mind-set and approach from waxing. For instance, did you know…
This is one of the major differences between sugaring and waxing legs and other more sensitive areas. Wax products are made of resins which adhere to skin cells. Because wax sticks to any surface it is applied to, pulling it away causes unwarranted pain. Sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells on bodies, faces, or legs. Therefore, when it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind silky smooth skin.
Additionally, because sugaring paste is all natural and water soluble, it can be easily rinsed away if needed.
