I’ve talked before about the benefits of sweating it out in our sauna but how about just sweating in general! Sweating in offers some impressive benefits. Relief from hot flashes, lowered risk of heart attack, and better recovery times are just a few of the advantages. True, some of us find sweating takes effort and is even a little unpleasant, but the health benefits of sweating are worth getting hot and sticky over!
What Is Sweat? It seems like a basic question, but sweating is more complicated than it looks. Each of us has about 4 million sweat glands that excrete a mixture of water, salt, amino acids, proteins, and other substances. The exact composition varies based on our hormone balance, physiological changes, and what bacteria and viruses are in the body.
Interestingly, sweat composition and how our glands function (or don’t) tell a lot about our health and are even used to diagnose certain conditions like cystic fibrosis.
Why Do We Sweat? There are several reasons why we perspire. The body uses sweat to regulate temperature and cool...more

Spa treatments and massage therapies, which are quick and relatively affordable, create both mental and physical health benefits. In fact, studies have shown that the frequency of visiting a spa directly correlates with better quality sleep, fewer sick days, reduced absenteeism from work and fewer hospitalizations.
Throughout the process of massage therapy, lymph flow stimulation enhances the immune system. Proper lymph flow, the body’s defense, draws out metabolic waste, excess water, toxins, and bacteria from the muscles. In turn, swelling and soreness decreases while ability to fight off disease increases. Massage also improves circulation and posture.
Facials and mud baths detoxify the skin from built up waste and bacteria. This is important because the skin is not only the largest organ in the body, but also the first line of defense against...more

ASK YOURSELF WHAT’S WRONG
Write your thoughts down.Especially when you go to bed or wake up.Write down whatever is on your mind. Yes, write it. Don’t type it out.Keep a paper journal by your bed.Scientists say your mind is wired so that the act of writing makes it far easier for your brain to cross items off your Worry List.Ask yourself: What’s wrong with my work? (Or whatever else makes Mondays hard.)Even if it seems there’s nothing you can do about it…writing it down is the first step toward a solution.Write down happy things too.Try to write down at least 3 things you’re happy about or looking forward to for the week.If you can’t think of 3 things, then create some rewards you look forward...more

::: INTRODUCTORY FACIAL ::: $49.00 Full Hour Service
WE HAVE SKIN MEMBERSHIPS!
Facials are so much more than an hour of indulgent pampering. They have enormous benefits to the health and wellness of your skin, both in the short and long term. When you consider all of the regular visits you make (dentist, hair salon, gym), you'll realize you really should be focusing some of that time on your skin—even if it's just when seasons change and your skin is at its most vulnerable. Here are just 10 reasons why you should get facials regularly!
Life is busy, hectic even. Most of us don’t take nearly enough time out for ourselves, to do something that will alleviate stress and help us regain balance. Spending an hour in a peaceful, relaxing environment can help restore balance to your mind, as well as your skin.
2) Visible wrinkle reduction.
