Tui Na Massage
Tui Na is the Chinese style of massage. Similar to deep tissue massage in the amount of pressure applied, it also includes a variety of techniques such as jostling and rocking to improve joint mobility.

Fangotherapy is the use of mud or clay for healing purposes. Each has its own specific properties, such as pain relief, anti-inflammation, detoxification, analgesic, and stimulating circulation. Clay is more “drawing” than mud which makes it good for detox and for drawing bacteria or impurities from the body. Mud is full of sulfur which is great for decreasing inflammation and pain.
A Fangotherapy session consists of applying the clay or mud to either the back, stomach, thighs, lower legs, upper arms, forearms, or the hands and feet. While the product sits the client will receive massage in the areas not being treated by the fango. The client has the choice of mud or clay, if they would like an essential oil added in, and which area of the body will be treated by the fango product. Hands and feet are combined if chosen.
Aromatherapy Body Wraps

The body wrap consists of the aromatherapy cream being applied to the entire body and a Swedish massage. Once the cream is applied, the client is wrapped up in sheets and blankets with a heating pad if desired. While the client sits in the wrap, a foot and scalp massage is given. The client has the choice of which essential oil is used. Aromatherapy can also be added into any regular massage.
Exfoliation of Hands/Feet
Exfoliation of Hands/Feet is the use of sugar or salt and oils to gently scrub the skin to remove dead skin cells, clean the pores, and improve skin health. There is also dry exfoliation which does not include the sugar, salt, and oil mix. Exfoliation also increases circulation to the treated area.
