Salt-Glows or Microbuff Body Polish (Add-on) . . . . . . . . . . $20
Referred to as salt-glows, are specifically designed to increase circulation and exfoliate by scrubbing the skin with a course but gentle, non-greasy mixture of a sea-salt, essential oils, and moisturizing lotions. This is usually done on the back, feet or legs, but can be applied to any region of the body, excluding the face and neck. Microbuff is the same treatment but using gentler water based crème, perfect if you don’t have time to shower after your massage. Great way to combat dry skin due to cooler weather or for people that have a problem with skin blemishes and acne. We offer this treatment as part of your massage experience.
Ear Candling . . . . . . . . . . $40
Ear Candling or coning is a simple, pain-free, effective method for removing excess wax, fungus and in some cases parasites that may cause impaction in the ear canal. With you lying on your side a special conical candle is inserted gently into the external auditory meatus and lit. The combination of heat and design forms a vortex that draws the now softened deposits up into the cone. You may hear a crackling sound as this happens. After the session, if you choose, have the therapist show you what came out of your ear. You will be amazed! *Ear Candling is done on a homeopathic basis only and should not be substituted for professional medical care. People who are suffering from an active ear infection, have ear tubes, perforated eardrums, or artificial eardrums should not have ear candling done.
Paraffin Dip . . . . . . . . . . $20 (Add-on)
A combination of warm paraffin wax and glycerin help relieve the body of minor aches and pain and is great for moisturizing as well. The paraffin we use is a Sadoma Detoxifying Mud which is excellent for pre-arthritic conditions as well making it a great added bonus for the weekend warrior’s massage.
Rose Mud Spa Foot/Leg Body Wrap Treatment (30 Min) . . . . . . . . . . $50
An elixir of French Rose Mineral Clay blended with Jojoba, Avocado and other essential oils make this treatment one of the most relaxing and moisturizing treatments we offer at Bodywork Massage and Day Spas. This treatment includes an exfoliation of the feet and lower legs followed by the Rose Mud Heated Wrap. To finish off this immobilizing treatment is a Reflexology session using Peppermint & Lemon Peel lotion or Body Butter. You can add this treatment to your massage. Save $35 when added to your 90-minute massage.
Cupping/Myofascial Release (30 Min) . . . . . . . . . . $50
Cupping has been quite popular since Michael Phelps showed cupping circle like “bruises” on his back during the past Olympic Games. Cupping is preformed using suctions cups that draw the skin up into the cups and away from the body which helps increase the fresh blood flow to that injured region. As stated, cupping is quite commonly used on Athletes to increase range of motion and decrease muscle pain. I place cupping into the category of MFR, which is done using slow, deep massage strokes with little to no lubricant. It is designed to warm up the strong connective tissue which lies underneath the epidermis and sometimes gets “stuck” due to atrophy, injury, bad posture or stress, thereby preventing ease of mobility. I also combine cupping and MFR together which means with the cups in place I gently move the cups over the body to simulate recovery over a larger area, this also cuts down on the suction cup marks that can be left on the body after treatment.
The only general concerns with cupping is the tell-tale marks the suction cups leave on your body, I would not recommend this treatment for people that have thin skin and concerns with skin tears. Cupping has also been effective in helping lower blood pressure. I also offer this treatment paired with the 90 minute signature massage at a discounted rate.
