Body Scrub & Hydration Treatment
The goal of body scrubs is to gently exfoliate your skin. Exfoliation is the removal of dead and dying skin cells that are at the surface. While bathing can do much of the removal of these skin cells, it doesn't quite get down to the newer, brighter, more healthy skin cells. When we moisturize, we capture those cells left behind. In order to have your best skin forward, regular exfoliation and hydration is key to encouraging the healthiest skin.
All of our body scrubs are made in-studio with highly researched and quality ingredients. We start with a sugar and coconut oil base. To this we add essential oils and other exfoliants that add to the skin and body benefits.
Coconut oil and extra fine white sugar - blended in-studio just for your service. This is applied to the entire skin surface (minus a few exceptions which will be draped for modesty) while you lie on a massage table, application is in a circular motion in a pattern that assures complete coverage using the appropriate amount of product (no-waste which is more likely in home application). This exfoliates the skin, encourages blood flow to the skin, and stimulates the lymph to remove toxins. Once completed you will be shown to the shower, located within the treatment room to remove the product on your own. You will be provided with a beautiful shower, warm towels, a shower cap, body wash and a robe. You will return to the table, which the therapist clears and prepares while you shower. Once back on the table the therapist will administer a light vigorous massage application of lotion (unscented, highly emollient product).
