While the mask is on the face, you receive a relaxing hand massage.  As a treatment, paraffin wax can be applied to your hands during the steam as a delightful way to relax those tired hands.  Great for those who suffer from arthritis as it increases blood flow, improve joint stiffness and reduce pain.  Be sure to add this to your next appointment to enjoy the benefits.

Prevention vs Correction

By Nadia Lam|May 13, 2017

IT IS BETTER TO PREVENT THAN TO CORRECT Our skin engages in a constant cycle of repair and regeneration along with all our other organs. The skin is the largest organ of our body and rejuvenates every 28 days but as we get older the rejuvenation cycle begins to slow down and takes longer for the repair and regeneration to take place.
