Thai Foot Massage
This traditional treatment is a massage of the lower legs and feet that involves hands-on stretching and massaging to open “sen” (energy) lines, along with the use of a stick to stimulate the reflex points on the soles of the feet that correspond to the internal organs of the body. As we spend so much of our time on our feet, Thai Foot Massage not only leads to a general feeling of wellbeing, but also increases circulation and targets key acupressure points on the feet.
Indian Head Massage
Massaging the head can do much to relieve the stress and tension that fill our day to day lives. The technique involves controlled caresses such as the spider walk, root pull, and comb, and focuses mainly on the face and scalp. It can also continue down the upper back, neck, shoulders and upper arms. The massage has a strong effect on the three higher chakras of the seven - mind, body and spirit.
As the massage works on the shoulders and neck, the relief of tension is felt almost instantaneously. As well as easing headaches and stress, the conditions it can help are many. It helps deal with scalp and hair problems, aids localized blood and lymphatic circulation, relieves eye strain, boosts the immune system, relieves muscle tension, and helps restore joint movement.
This facial treatment consists of a variety of steps that include gentle cleansing, exfoliation, toning, mask, herbal steam, extractions, lymph drainage massage and protective oils and creams.
Through enhanced blood circulation and deep purification the pores open to allow more oxygen into the cells and thereby rejuvenate your skin. Extensive moisturizing combined with professional massage makes the skin flexible, smooth and ageless.
