• Lymphatic Massage Benefits

    The International Alliance of Health care Educators explains that lymph drainage massages are done in a specific rhythm and direction to increase the flow of the lymphatic system in the body.  People with medical needs and those that are healthy can both benefit from this type of massage

    Healing After Sugery

    Lymph drainage massage helps speed the regeneration of tissues and cells to reduce swelling and detoxifies the body.   It is a very gentle and smooth technique used to drain fluid from areas of congestion and swelling.

    Better Breastfeeding

    Some women experience complications when breast feeding such as plugged ducts, sore nipples and engorgement that can be painful and discouraging.  Even though some complications will be resolved in time, lymph drainage massage can help reduce the swelling of engorgement and improve plugged ducts.  Fixing these problems can reduce soreness and  in the breasts and nipples, leading to better breast feeding.

    Improve Immune System

    Your immune system is directly tied to the lymphatic system.  If the flow of lymphatic materials slows, the immune system weakens.  Lymph drainage massages can improve the immune system by increase the antibodies that fight off infections and can also reduce inflammation that causes diseases such as arthritis.


    The Internal Alliance of Healthcare Educators states that rhythm, pressure and motion of the lymph drainage massages work together to reduce pain, stress and to promote general vitality and well-being

  • Water: the anti-aging "cure"

    Water is the main factor in looking younger, staying healthy, and the biggest bonus of all - losing weight!

    More than two-thirds of your body weight is water; this liquid is just as important as oxygen for keeping you alive.

    Every cell tissue and organ depends on water to function. Water keeps your body alive by stabilizing its temperature, in eliminating toxins and waste products, carrying nutrients, and maintaining blood volume.

    Water is also the medium in which cell chemical reaction takes place. You could go for weeks without food, but you will live only a few days with no water.

    There is a serious need to replenish your water supply constantly if you want to stay young, vital, and healthy. Even minor dehydration can trigger devastating internal reactions, such as:

    Dehydrated body cells that age faster

    Water retention due to high sodium levels (influence blood pressure)

    Increased risk of bladder infection that could harm kidneys

    Increased constipation

    Decreased fat-burning

    Diminished fuel for the brain

    How much water do we need daily? Minimum of “8 glasses a day”

    More than 8 glasses a day if: you exercise more in hot weather or travel by airplane

    Don’t wait until you are thirsty to drink. A dry mouth is a sign of dehydration.

  • Does a facial help with acne?

    Facials can treat the symptoms of acne, but are unlikely to prevent new acne from forming. Our spa offers acne facials that involve deep cleansing and extraction of whiteheads and blackheads.

  • Can I use makeup after a facial?

    (The answer is most likely “yes”, but ask your esthetician. At the very least, especially if you undergo a peel be sure to wear a high quality sun screen to ward off sun damage. Also, some mineral makeup bases are considered an extension of your skin care (example: Glo Minerals is one))
  • Does everyone have a shorter hairstyle that looks good on them?

    Yes, everyone has a shorter hairstyle that will fit their face, head and body shape. A skilled artist would be your best choice to consult, execute, and guide you to love and maintain that shorter style. Most people are afraid of shorter hair. Our hair is our main adornment and some people feel that their longer hair is their glory and without it they would feel too revealed. Sometimes cutting your hair shorter is a very freeing experience! What about you?

  • When choosing a styling product, what features and benefits do I need to look for?

    Know what type of hair that you have: fine—medium---course---flat---heavy---frizzy---dry-oily to name a few. Look for key words to describe how you want you to appear and be managed. Example: volumizing or smoothes frizziness

  • Are professional products better than grocery store brands?

    Most store brands are usually watered down and seem to create oiliness on the scalp and dryness on the ends. Professional brands are more concentrateed, so, less is used. The cost ends up around the same and the hair and scalp is in better shape. This helps in creating a healthier and shiny hairstyle. Tip: Ask enough questions about the professional products that you choose. If you are not happy with the professional products, it could be that you were recommended the wrong product for your hair type or the wrong styling product for your style or maintenance.

  • What is Keratin?

    Keratin is a type of protein high in sulphur and the amino acid cystine, making it tough, elastic and insoluble.  Our unique Keratin formula is virtually a "liquid form of hair."  It brings back to hair what it has lost over the years.

  • What technique for hair color, hi-lites / low-lites would be best for me?

    A face shape analysis will tell where to place shadowing, hi/lites, low/lites.  The goal is to create an oval illusion.  Check out the pictures to look for your face shape.

  • How often should I get a facial?

    If you get facials on a regular basis, your esthetician can keep you informed of changes in your skin and new products that would be beneficial to you. A spa treatment with professional products is usually more potent and effective than what you would use at home to maintain the health of your skin.
  • How do I choose a hairstylist?

    With a salon on every corner, and an average of 4 stylists in every salon, how do you make a choice? For most, there are a lot of disappointments in their attempts. Whether you have just moved to the area or have been searching for years, try these tips for better results:

    • Decide what you want before you go. Do you want a new style? Are you happy with your style but new in the area? Are you conservative or trendy? Do you want guidance from a stylist, or one that will follow your direction closely? Do you want a hairstyle that requires regular maintenance (every 4-6 weeks for a cut, color, etc.)?
    • Check out leads. When you see someone that has a great style and is close to the same type of hair as you have, stop them an ask who their stylist is. A stylists’ best advertisement are their clients.
    • Inspect a place before you make an appointment. Are you comfortable with the cleanliness and professional response of the staff? Talk to the owner about your requirements and see who she or he suggests. Don’t be afraid to walk out if you are not happy. Ask for a consultation with the stylist before making an appointment. After the talk, you will know whether you want to go further. Make an appointment for another day if you are comfortable.
    • Communicate by asking for what you want. The stylist should ask questions and gather information before rendering services. If not, take the time to state clearly or show pictures of what you are looking for in a style. And keep in mind, pictures should only be a guide to show what styles you like. A good stylist will know how to adapt the styles to your needs. If you don’t feel the stylist is listening or you feel uncomfortable---leave!
  • Should I color my grey hair?

    Grey hair is aging on most people. It would be best to consult a professional on whether to enhance or cover grey. This decision is a choice with upkeep as part of the equation. Grey hair is usually dull, so, I would suggest to at least keep it shiny with a product or conditioning application. Tips: Wear brighter colors that enhance the hair, skin, and eyes; and it is better to have contrast between the hair, skin, and eyes, not just one color from head to toe. Grey is a background color and is enhanced with other colors such as blues, reds, greens, and yellow.
