Why is it important to use organic essential oils?
Essential Oils are absorbed into your bloodstream immediately, whether they are ingested by mouth (make sure the oil you are ingesting is safe to do so), applying on the skin (some oils are "hot" and should be diluted with a carrier oil, such as coconut or sunflower oil), or inhaling through a diffuser or directly from the bottle or your hands. Of course you want anything that enters your bloodstream to be free of chemicals and pesticides. We use and sell doTerra oils, which are specifically sourced, and batch tested for the utmost quality.
What is the difference between a Deep Tissue and Swedish massage?
Our two most popular massages differ both in benefits and in pressure applied by the massage therapist. The Swedish Massage is intended to induce a heightened state of tranquility - our massage therapists use light but firm pressure to increase circulation and encourage relaxation. Our Deep Tissue Massage is intended for those with deep tension in the muscles and connective tissues, which can be worked out with firmer pressure. Some may find it to be slightly painful, but in applying more pressure the massage therapist can ease chronic pain and increase joint mobility. If you want the best of both worlds, we offer an intermediate pressure massage which we call the "De-Stress massage." This is a great option for those that prefer medium pressure or only have one or two areas with pain or tension.
What sanitation practices are used at our spa?
We disinfect tools and implements in between each guest, using Ultracare Disinfectant, which is EPA, OSHA, CDC, and State Board compliant as a medical grade disinfectant. Ultracare quickly kills over 141 potentially harmful microorganisms, including HIV-1 and Hepatitis C. After being cleaned with Ultracare, all tools and implements are placed in a UV sterilizer to further ensure your safety and good health. A fresh disposable liner is used for each pedicure, thus eliminating the risk of any bacteria remaining in the tub. We use a prepackaged set with files and buffers that is opened in front of the guest and is yours to take home or is disposed of after the service.
How long should hair be to get a good waxing result?
Hair should be at least the length of a grain of rice for best results.
Bio Hemp benefits
What is CBD and what are the benefits of using a product that contains CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidoil. It is derived from the hemp, or marijuana plant. It can be used to help maintain a feeling of calm and ease. CBD does not contain high levels of THC and will not get you high. Containing phytonutrients and rich in omega fatty acids, it is very anti-inflammatory, soothing, brightening, and improves the skin's barrier function. It is a good choice for people with eczema or dry skin. We carry a line of FarmHouse Fresh Bio Hemp products. These are available for sale, and are used in our CBD infused services. The CBD used in these products is specifically sourced and encapsulated for quicker absorption. Smells great too!
