Medicinal Healing Wrap
The body wrap process begins with your choice of a gentle exfoliation, a mixture of sea salt and oil or a dry brush technique. Then you are massaged with your choice of a blend of aromatic essential herbal oils. Exfoliating effectively prepares the body for wrapping, ridding it of dead skin cells thus allowing greater absorption of the medium. The medium is then applied to the body and you are wrapped snuggly in a cocoon of mylar & a wool blanket and left to relax for 20 minutes. During this time, your body will be generating heat and opening the pores to absorb all the benefits of the wrap medium used. The body wrap medium is removed, if desired an optional shower facility is available to remove product from skin.
As you lie resting, the mind and body go inward. While the therapist attends to massaging your feet, head, and neck. This is your quiet restorative time.
Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each 1 ½ -hour hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body. We also incorporate a customized massage, with the use of hot stones which offers enhanced benefits.
The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
