What to expect in a massage session?
Your therapist will perform a general intake prior to your session and will explain how to get on the table. You're undressed to your comfort level (down to underwear or no underwear) but covered by a sheet and blanket at all times. Only body parts being worked on are exposed at a time. The therapist will check in for the right amount of pressure a few times during the treatment and might use aromatherapy, hot stones, hot towels or cups with your permission.
What to expect in a reflexology session and how is it different from a foot massage?
You remain fully clothed for reflexology - unless you prefer an integrated session that includes massage as well.
The main difference between reflexology and a foot massage is that massage views the foot just as a foot, but reflexology sees the foot as a vehicle to connect to all the organs, joints and muscles in the body via the reflexology foot map. In general massage will use flowing movements, whereas reflexology uses a specific technique called thumbwalking, fingers or even a wooden stick. This focused, pulsing thumb technique is said to sooth the nervous system and ease pain. Reflexology does not require any oils, while massage uses some oil, lotion or gel to lubricate the skin.
Will I be able to enjoy reflexology with ticklish feet?
Absolutely. Reflexology uses steady, firm and slow pressure, so you're not set off by fast and superficial movements. Most clients - even with generally ticklish feet - are able to deeply relax during a reflexology session.
What to expect in a cupping session?
Your cupping session will start with warming up the tissue but eventually cups will be incorporated. The sensation cups provide is very different from what you ever experienced before. Mild discomfort can occur depending on the type of fascia and the level of tension you have but most people describe it as a quite relaxing experience. Cupping creates what we call negative pressure - while a regular massage creates positive pressure -, so instead of compressing down on tissue and muscles, we decompress them.
The biggest misconception about cupping are those dark cupping marks that people like to call 'hikkies'. Cupping marks mean that you have stagnation over those areas that the cups bring to the surface. Your lymphatic system will take over from this point and removes all that extra debris, waste material (lactic acid, environmental, medicinal toxins etc.). Staying hydrated can't be emphasized enough before and after your cupping session, otherwise your lymphatic system can get congested which will make you feel possibly sick or tired.
Does the Machine Nano Brow Service Hurt?
Everyone’s tolerance for pain is different. That being said, most clients who
received this service didn’t report experiencing much pain and some equated it to receiving eyebrow waxing. Remember, numbing anesthetic cream is
added to your brow area prior to the service starting so that you can relax
comfortably while you undergo your beautiful transformation.
The Healing Process and Aftercare
Equally important to your PMU Service is your Understanding and Knowledge
of the healing and Aftercare process. PMU Artist being really good at what we
do is your ability to follow the rules of the game after your procedure is complete. This will greatly determine the outcome of you having the best healed nano brow results. We will go over everything during your appointment.
Touch Ups and Long-Term Results
After your initial session you will need to come back in for a touch-up usually
within 6 to 8 weeks. This will allow me to check your healing progress and color retention. This time will also be used to fill in or adjust the shape of your brows if requested. After successfully completing your after-care and attending your touch-up appointment the long-term results are you waking up to beautiful brows up to the next 3 years. No more needing to take the extra time filling in your brows every day. Depending on the color retention in your
brows you may decide to come back prior to 3 years to receive a color boost.
It’s completely optional and based upon your preference. The next session
should be rather simple and should take less time than your original
