Himalayan Salt Stone
Himalayan Salt Stone Massage that contain 84 different naturally occurring minerals help moisturize the outer layers of skin, and help promote deeper sleep and relaxation.The minerals provide a gentle exfoliation on the skin and and elements essential to optimal health also providing amazing healing properties for the human body and environment.
During the massage, therapists use warmed Himalayan salt stones to apply pressure, using Swedish massage techniques. During the course of the treatment, the minerals are absorbed through the skin. The effect is a profound sense of well-being. A Himalayan Salt Stone Massage can also zero out the body’s electromagnetic field. Electronic devices such as phones and computers can disrupt natural energy flow within the body. The stone’s neutral structure and natural resonant frequency help to realign energy pathways and restore balance to the central nervous system.

In a Lymphatic Drainage Therapy session the therapist detects the rhythm, direction, depth, and quality of the flow and then, using very gentle pressure with soft wavelike movements on the skin, encourages and enhances the lymph to flow in the direction of the lymph nodes.The aim of the therapist is to restore equilibrium in the tissues.
Treatment may be applied almost immediately following surgery, actually the sooner the better since it assists the healing process. In any condition where edema is evident manual lymphatic drainage is the ideal soft tissue therapy to apply frequently in the initial stages. The maneuvers are gentle and can treat very painful and acute conditions without being invasive.
Cupping Therapy Massage
Cupping Therapy is an ancient healing form of medicine in which a partial vacuum is created in a cup and placed on the skin resulting in local suction. Cupping was used for a wide variety of ailments by the Chinese, the Egyptians, the Greeks, and it spread in multiple forms throughout Asia and Europe. In the 1800s cupping was widely used by American and European doctors to treat colds and respiratory ailments and it has become an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
