Are you tired of shaving, don’t have enough time to shave as often as you would like, or suffering from skin irritations caused by shaving?
Waxing is a more effective, and a longer lasting way of hair removal. Did you know that every time you remove hair with wax the hair actually gets thinner? It’s a true fact! Once I found this out I never wanted to shave again. Contrary to popular belief, with our waxing professional’s technique this wax experience is virtually pain free. We use soft wax for estheticians to ensure that the waxing process is as pain-free as possible.
I would like to introduce you to the wonderful world of Barefoot Massage and let you know how it was that I became a fan.
THE RECOMMENDATION I first fell in love with this truly healing massage in 2010. After years and years of requesting Swedish Massage with Deep Tissue on my neck and shoulders, my massage therapist and dear friend recommended for me to set up a Barefoot session with her instead. I was a little apprehensive at the idea of having someone walk on me as this did not seem to be something that I could imaging feeling relaxing, but decided to follow her guidance. After all, she was very rarely wrong when it came to body work or skincare.
HOW IT WORKS Barefoot is offered in both 90-min and 2-Hr sessions. Being a beginner to receiving this modality I opted for the 90-min. I was instructed to show up in yoga-style attire for the service. This is so you may comfortably move from position to position. In this service your massage therapist will have you lay down on a thai matt in the Barefoot Treatment room. The Barefoot Treatment Room is noticeably smaller to allow for the therapist to use the sides of the room to better leverage into muscle tension. Once on the matt your therapist places you in various positions so that they may received better access to the deeper layers of muscle tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.
TRYING NEW THINGS During the service, while receiving work on the shoulder area which was pretty tight, I began to feel the tension dissipate and my shoulders’ range of motion increase. This increase in the range of motion is a common experience and may be why we have so many athletes request the Barefoot Massage service at Le Reve. In any case the pressure applied felt amazing. Although this service provides a deeper massage than Sports Massage, Deep Tissue, and Trigger Point it did not feel like it. The Barefoot Massage Therapy session left me feeling as if I had received an hour and a half of stretching. I left my treatment in a complete state of bliss.
If you like deep tissue and sports massage this Treatment is perfect for you.
FOLLOWING MY BAREFOOT MASSAGE The following day my range of motion was still increasing and I did not experience the slight soreness that can come from Deep Tissue body work. I had a renewed range of motion and flexibility. I even felt as though I was standing taller and without the discomfort that I had experienced from my muscle tension prior to my service I was also in better spirits. It is truly awesome what an amazing massage can do for the mind as well as the body. Barefoot massage uses deep compression and myofascial release to help ease tension and relax tight muscles. Through trigger point work we can help alleviate chronic tension and target the root of the problem relieving stress, increasing circulation, helping the healing process.
