The Ultimate Hand/Foot Massage
This luxurious spa-style offering holds a special significance for me. In the holy scriptures of my faith, washing someone's feet is a sign of self-giving service and generous hospitality, which is what I hope to extend to you in every session. A 30-minute session includes your choice of hands or feet; a 60-minute session includes both hands and feet. First, I soak them in warm water, scented with an aromatic oil of your choice,or none at all, if you prefer. Next, it's time to exfoliate with a sugar scrub and then apply either lotion or oil according to your preference. Finally, a thorough massage relieves the tension and pain that accumulates in these all-important and highly used extremities of our body. Come on in, put up your feet, relax, and enjoy!
Lymphatic massage techniques aim to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, lymphatic work can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness.
