Do you suffer from tired, aching feet? We have just what you need. Our special foot treatment is designed to relieve the discomfort in the feet while melting your stress away, leaving you relaxed, pain-free and ready to face life again.
Our special foot treatment starts with a soak in a warm, soothing bath. The water is lightly scented with our signature combination of essential oils that is intended to restore the body and mind back to a positive, balanced state.
Scent is one of the most primitive of senses. Unlike the other senses, scent acts directly on the most basic parts of the brain and can have a profound effect on the mind, and emotional states. Everyone has had the experience of a scent triggering a rush of memories, complete with the emotions and moods associated with that memory. This amazing effect of scent is what is used in the science of aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy uses the direct link between nasal receptors and the brain. When an essential oil molecule is inhaled, it binds to receptors in the nasal epithelium. These receptors send signals to many parts of the brain, including those involved in memory and sensory perception. They also send signals to glands involved in releasing hormones into the body, causing a global effect from a single scent. An aromatherapy practitioner can carefully select a mixture of essential oils to produce a particular effect. Some mixes are intended to invigorate, others to help with focus, and others, like our signature foot bath mixture, can induce a deep, relaxed state.
After experiencing the profound effects of aromatherapy for themselves, many clients become firm believers. They acquire a collection of special essential oil mixtures to use on many different occasions. Before an important meeting, an aromatherapy user may inhale scents intended to calm and focus. Before a romantic dinner, a different mixture of scents may be used.
After your feet have been soaked and your mind has been relaxed with aromatherapy it’s time to work on your body. Our special foot treatment includes a massage to heal, soothe and rejuvenate. Our massage specialists are trained in the latest massage techniques to make sure that the client has the best experience possible.
Massage relaxes overused muscles, releases tension, and relieves pain and stiffness. The health benefits of massage are extensive. Massage can trigger the release of endorphins, says the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, which are powerful pain relievers and mood enhancers. Many individuals report that massage results in mood enhancement and may help to relieve depression and anxiety. Massage may also provide long-lasting benefits to well-being, such as improved sleep, more energy and improved concentration. A good massage is certainly an excellent way to relieve stress, which in today’s world is very important. Everyone needs to stop and take a relaxing break from their stressful routine from time to time.
Massage can also help heal injuries, improve range of motion, and increase circulation. Poor circulation in the feet is a common cause of tired, aching feet. The action of the massage on the tissues brings oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, and allows the blood to carry away toxins. These actions can help chronic injuries heal, permanently relieving the pain associated with chronic injuries.
The Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals says that there is some evidence that massage may be able to help control blood pressure. Its effect on blood pressure may be mediated in part due to the relaxation induced by massage, and it may be in part mediated by the improved circulation associated with massage- with better circulation, the heart doesn’t have to work so hard to try to get blood to the tissues, and the blood pressure drops.
Massage may also be able to enhance the immune system’s function, says the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. Improved circulation after a massage means the lymphatic system is draining fluids well and allowing the white blood cells to circulate and attack invading organisms.
