Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin, to alleviate pain or to treat various diseases.
Developed millennia ago in China, numerous recent studies conducted by "Western" scientists in Europe and the United States have found that acupuncture is at least moderately effective in treating pain and nausea.

‘Ashi’ means foot and ‘atsu’ means pressure.To receive Ashiatsu feels like receiving a broad, deep, luxurious, Swedish massage (see Gallery). Holding bars above the table, the therapist uses their feet and is able to apply deep, even pressure via body weight and gravity. This manner of working allows the therapist to work deep with less effort and better body mechanics. The bars above also work as a stabilizing tool and a great way to monitor how much pressure is being applied. Good communication is important for both giver and receiver.
The Benefits of Ashiatsu Include:
Deep Tissue without discomfort, Reduces chronic pain, Releases mental and emotional stress, Improves blood pressure, Breaks up scar tissue, Releases bundled nerves, Stretches the spine, Improves body posture, Boosts Immunity, Promotes feelings of well being
Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Massage can be applied with thehands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a massage device. Depending on the application and technique used, massage is used to promote relaxation and well-being, and is beneficial in treating sports injuries and other problems affecting the musculature of the body such as postural misalignment and many painful conditions.
No matter your age or gender, your body’s largest organ is your skin. If you want your skin (especially on the face) to look its best and stay healthy, you need to take care of it.
A staggering amount of pollution, dirt, grime, and dead skin accumulates on the face. This build up is an unavoidable fact of life. We can do the best we can to keep the skin clean, but it is not always enough. Many advocates compare getting a facial to going to the dentist. We brush our teeth, floss when we remember, and still acknowledge the importance of going to the dentist for a regular deep clean. Keeping up with dentist appointments saves us a lot of money down the road. A root canal is hundreds of dollars more than a regular cleaning. Like our teeth, the skin needs to be evaluated and cleansed by a trained professional every so often to maintain a healthy complexion. An Esthetician should be seen as the dentist for our skin. Getting facials on a regular basis, once every month or at the least every change of the season will save you from needless spending in the future.
Healthy, good looking skin begins with skin care. Facials are an essential ingredient of your overall skin care program and you will love the benefits.
