Soothe dry and cracked heels, soften tough feet, all the while being treated like a princess as it’s done. A Detox Salt Scrub is a beautiful enhancement therapy you can add to any massage, and a wonderful way to “make it” until your next pedicure.
We start out by massaging in a relaxing blend of essential oils into the facial muscles, this helps to promote relaxation and calm the nervous system. Then we begin to massage the face using chilled marble stones. This will tighten the skin while also helping to reduce sinus congestion and swelling. Resting the cool stones on the face will allow their benefits to penetrate deeper. We top this mini session off with hot towels on the face. This helps to open up blood vessels allowing fresh nutrients to return to the skin and leaving you with a vibrant glow. This service can be added on as an enhancement to any massage session and can make a 90-minute massage feel like a million bucks.
Massage Cupping (Vacuum therapy) helps to draws out inflammation and old stagnation from deep in the tissues so it can be released. The skin can turn reddish with strong movements, indicating that circulation has been brought to the surface. Application of essential oil blends immediately after treatment will enable absorption of the product deep into the tissue.
Massage Cupping will increase local blood supply to the soft tissue, which brings nourishment and allows for toxins to be carried away via the lymphatic system.
Massage Cupping is powerfully effective at loosening up stubborn muscles and releasing restrictions in fascia and scar tissue. However, this is one therapy that does not stand alone. Currently at Libby’s Art of Healing, Massage Cupping Therapy is only added to a therapeutic massage to help enhance the benefits.
Bamboo massage is a creative means of providing deep tissue massage using heated bamboo to roll and knead the tissue which creates a heightened sensation of well-being and relaxation. Bamboo massage can also be utilized as a significant preventive therapy against the stresses of our modern world while adding relief from a number of physical and emotional issues.
Hot Stone Massage is like a Relaxation Massage on steroids. If you want to feel like a queen, this is the massage for you. Using the warmth of the stones your massage therapist can also go deeper into the muscle to work out stubborn knots.
