Out with the Old, In with the New!

Out with the old, In with the newEvery person wants to look and feel their best. The culmination of one year and the beginning of another is the perfect time to get rid of dull, dry skin and expose new, smooth, flawless skin.  Get your skin in shape from head to toe for the New Year!

Boost your confidence by putting your best face forward! Diminish fine lines, tighten, brighten and smooth your skin to reveal the beautiful face within!  Your esthetician can start with a chemical peel to slough off dry, dead skin followed by a hydrating mask to moisturize and calm stressed skin.  Next, lavish yourself with a hydrating facial to enhance your results.  Don’t forget to incorporate the proper home care products into your daily regimen to keep your face glowing and vibrant between spa visits.

 Radiant skin isn’t just for your face.  Your body needs tender loving care, as well! Reserve your body makeover so you can look and feel your very best in 2014.  Just like with your face, you want to remove dry, dead skin.  Revitalize your skin tone and texture, and hydrate and renew your skin’s moisture balance with a body scrub.  Then, reduce cellulite and lose inches while you remove unwanted waste and toxins with a hydrating body contour wrap. Finally, relax with a deep, therapeutic massage to further remove toxins and relieve sore muscles. You’ll feel relaxed and rejuvenated.  And, of course….moisturize!!  Your massage therapist can recommend a perfect at-home moisturizer to keep your skin smooth and supple.

Here’s another important reminder. Water is vital to detoxifying. And detoxifying is crucial for healthy, vibrant skin. Water transports nutrients to the cells and assists in eliminating wastes and toxins. You’ve heard this so many times… drink at least 6 – 8 glasses of water each day. Staying hydrated inside and out is the key to a healthy body and beautiful skin. Your body needs water. Drink up!

Make a commitment to be healthy this year inside and out!

Stress Reduction Made Simple

Stress made simpleWhat exactly is stress?

In a nutshell, stress is state of emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.

External factors like your environment, your relationships, your job, your school, or your home life can cause stress.

We all experience stress.

However, some of us respond to stress better than others. How stress is handled is a result of internal factors-your overall health and wellness, your fitness level, your nutrition, how much sleep you get, and your emotional well being.

When your internal factors aren’t in the best of shape, you start to feel the effects of stress.

You might feel anxiety ridden or depressed. You might be more emotional, quicker to anger, or more likely to cry.

When we get really stressed even everyday events seem like too much to handle.

Stress like this is really unhealthy.

As a matter of fact, stress is linked to a wide variety of health conditions, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, skin disease, gastrointestinal disease, migraines, anxiety, depression, and even severe aging.

Stress can cause conditions like asthma and diabetes to worsen, and can have a negative effect on the immune system.

While it would be ideal to remove the sources of stress in our lives, in most cases this just isn’t possible. But what is possible is to influence the way our bodies handle stress.

The best way to minimize the effects of stress is to make sure that your body is in the best shape possible. In addition to eating well, exercising, and getting plenty of sleep, massage therapy is also important.

Massage has been shown to have an overwhelming effect on your overall health!

If you are experiencing stress give us a call to schedule an appointment right away.

We’ll make sure you enjoy the benefits of massage, to ensure that your body has a fighting chance against stress!
