Spring’s 60-Minute Special: Facial Reflexology & Indian Head Massage Combo
SPRING TREATDuration: 60-Minutes$95.00
This Spring 2019 special combines Facial Reflexology with an Indian Head Massage to put you in a healthy frame of mind to start the season off right.
This spring I’m offering a spring special that combines two stress relieving modalities. Start off by experiencing a delightful scalp-tingling Indian Head Massage. It’s designed to ease aches, pains and tension in your neck, back and shoulders, stimulates blood and oxygen flow to help you sleep better, and improves the texture & growth of your hair.
Then, sit back and enjoy a luxurious Facial Reflexology treatment, also known as Dien Chan. To perform this treatment, I’ll use my fingers, hands, and small tools to gently stimulate the reflex points on the scalp and face to: manage bags under the eyes, crows feet, wrinkles, saggy skin, frown & worry lines, and more.
Indian Foot Massage also known as Kansa Vatki (KV) Foot Massage, or Padabhyanga Massage, is lusciously therapeutic. It emerges out of India where Ayurveda, the ancient system of Indian medicine, was developed. The health of your feet mirror your general health as foot ailments can be in initial signs that other health problems are emerging. Therefore, by massaging your feet I’m treating your whole body as your nerves, blood and lymph vessels run up and down your spine to all the other regions of your body. Indian Foot Massage is given while you lie on a massage table. The treatment includes using a small metal bowl, made of copper, tin and zinc, and warm ghee or clarified butter. The treatment begins with some relaxing foot and lower leg massage. The heart of the therapy involves rubbing the soles of the feet with this bowl, ending with a sequence of further massages. This entire treatment aims to detoxify and re-balance the body’s energy.
In a typical reflexology session I gently and carefully use my hands to massage your feet. The theory supporting this art is that we have reflex points that correspond to the body’s organs (liver, kidneys, lungs etc.) and systems of the body (lymphatic, endocrine, muscular, etc.), so by applying pressure to these reflexes we are positively affecting our organs.
The toxins produced when our body’s energy is out-of-balance impacts our entire health. When stressed, our body copes by producing short term defense mechanisms. Over time, if not treated holistically, these toxins can have serious long term affects such as heart disease, ulcers, stroke, and other complications. When you are in sync, meaning when you are relaxed and your energy is balanced, your body works more efficiently so you are able to enjoy life to its fullest.
