Most people think of a massage as a head-to-toe, front and back, full body treatment. It can be this. But doesn’t need to be.
Sometimes clients will ask for extra time spent on certain areas, or that other areas not be included in the massage. The option is yours and your therapist wants to be able to accomodate your preferences.
Facials and skin care
Stress, climate, rigours of day to life and cancer treatments place a tremendous demand on your skin. Professional skin care treatment can help nourish, hydrate and sooth your skin.
Hands, feet, nails, lip, eye
We use them all day and seldom stop to think about them. A hand and foot, or lip and eye treatment is a special treat and can be very restorative and help the whole body feel better.
Head, neck and face
A face massage is deeply relaxing and will often include acupresure point applications. If your skin needs some extra hydration your therapist will use a lotion, cream, oil or gel to help hydrate and nourish your skin.
The masseter (jaw muscle), often referenced as the strongest muscle in the body, is often included in a face massage. Any tightness and tension relieved in this area will have a ripple down effect and also help reduce tension in the neck, shoulders, and low back. Yes! Indeed. Everything is in fact connected.
A head massage can have a wonderful effect often felt over the whole body. Sometimes though during the initial hair-loss phase the hair and scalp feel like they hurt, this is temporary. You may not want to receive a scalp massage during this period. If you think receiving a scalp massage would feel good, your therapist can use an oil, cream, or nourishing mask, or no product at all.
