Cupping therapy is an ancient practice originating in Chinese Medicine. This treatment draws blood to the surface through suction which allows for greater circulation for blood and oxygen to the muscles. An old Chinese medicine maxim states "where there is stagnation there will be pain, remove the stagnation, and you remove the pain." It detoxes muscle tissue by drawing the toxin filled fluids to the surface which allows your body to remove them more efficiently. Quickly and safely breaks up fascial adhesions. This is a great treatment for those suffering from chronic pain or athletes who wish to reduce recovery time. On a deeper therapeutic level, cupping is very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, chronic headache, fibromyalgia, neuralgia, provides myofascial release, great for scar tissue treatment (Baguanfa cups), sinus release (facial cupping with the Earth Spa Bells Collection), even has beauty related applications such as cellulite treatment.Contracted, congested muscle tissue will soften quickly with only a few minutes of Negative Pressure Massage Cupping.

Reflexology is a science and an art that is based on the principle that there are microcosms (mini-maps) of the entire body mirrored on the feet, hands and ears. Pressure applied to specific points on these microcosms helps to create balance within the body, soothing the nervous system, improving circulation and reducing stress. It works through a subtle energy flow, meridians and zones in the feet. It also works through preventing and clearing venous stasis, realignment of bones, the nervous system, intention and ways still unknown. Some benefits include but not limited to stress reduction and deep relaxation, enhanced circulation, balanced body systems, stimulated creativity and productivity, revitalized energy, preventative health care.
Reflexology sessions are done with clients fully clothed, removing only their shoes and socks. Sessions are typically 45 - 60 minutes long, and clients are positioned comfortably on a massage table (or in a reclining reflexology chair). Reflexology can also be integrated into a longer therapeutic massage session.
To avoid being worked on by untrained and possibly-exploited persons, it is advisable to ask those advertising reflexology where they trained, the number of hours of coursework, and the professional organizations they are members of.

KI is life force, the nonphysical energy that animates all living things, the primary energy. It is the energy used by all healers and it surrounds us. It is the spiritual consciousness called REI that guides the KI, the life force, in what we call REIKI. So, therefore, Reiki can be defined as spiritually guided life force energy. A Reiki practitioner helps the body's natural healing process along by enhancing the body's energy. Reiki is an energy based on intent. It's a firm belief that Reiki energy flows through a Reiki channel to facilitate a person's healing, not to perform healing.

Different type of permanent cosmetics/brows
Nano brows: Are hair strokes created using a single nano needle and a permanent makeup machine to mimic the look of natural eyebrow hairs. This is a great option for those who are adamant about having a hair-like appearance but have combination or
oily skin. Also a great option for those who suffer from alopecia or have other skin conditions that may not be suitable for microblading.
Powder or Ombre Brows: Are a beautiful soft dusting of pigment using a permanent makeup machine that creates a very natural fullness and/or density to the eyebrows.
This in particular is my favourite technique as it heals very evenly and creates an extremely soft and natural appearance. This technique is ideal for all skin types and causes the least amount of trauma to the skin.
Combination brows: Are a combination of hair strokes and shading, just like the name suggests. The hair strokes can be created by using a nano needle and machine. The shading, also referred to as powder brows, are also added onto the strokes to create a “background” or density to the eyebrows. This is ideal for all skin types and recommended for those who have very sparse or little to no natural eyebrow hairs (ie.cancer survivors, alopecia clients or those who have over-plucked). Hair strokes alone may not provide adequate coverage or density for these types of clients, therefore, having a combination of hair strokes and shading will create the most realistic results.
Laser vs. Saline Lightening
Both saline and laser are well-respected methods of removal. Both can be amazingly effective and provide the results you are hoping for. Saline and laser couldn’t be more different so how do you know which method would be best and most effective for you and your particular case? The information listed here will hopefully provide some insight and help you to choose the method of removal that will best suite your needs.
Laser works by producing a short pulse of intense light that penetrates deep enough down into the skin, then is absorbed by the pigment. The intense light breaks up the pigment into tiny fragments. The laser pushes the tiny fragments back down, deeper into the body to be removed by the body’s lymph and waste system. Different laser wavelengths target specific colors at specific depths in the skin. It can take several laser wavelengths to remove a
multi-colored tattoo. Due to the variables and restrictions of many lasers, it is important to do your research and pick the right laser for the tattoo you want removed. The healing process is about 7 to 10 days. With some lasers, you may experience blisters, if so that could prolong the healing process.
Saline works by Osmosis. The high concentration of salt draws the water underneath and surrounding the pigment up to the surface of the skin to be contained and removed by the scab. So, whereas Laser pushes pigment back down into the body to be removed by the lymph and waste system, saline moves the pigment up and out of the skin via the scabbing process.
Saline is not color restricted and will remove all colors including white (titanium dioxide). Saline is also not depth specific, meaning it will target and start lifting pigment/ink no matter the depth that it resides.
Li-FT® Saline solution is delivered into the skin in the same way we implant pigment or ink to do a permanent makeup or body tattoo procedure. We use our tattoo machines; dip our tattoo needle into the Li-FT® solution and then tattoo it into the area of the unwanted procedure or tattoo. The healing process is about 7 to 10 days. Saline removal does not cause any blistering.
Laser can permanently remove brow hair. Saline will not affect your
eyebrow hair at all.
Tattooing skin after it has been lasered is often unsuccessful. Saline
removal tends not to affect the skin in this way and any plans to re-do the procedure or tattoo is successful.
Laser cannot be used around the eyes. Li-FT® saline solution is safe
and effective in removing poorly done eyeliner tattoos.
Laser cannot be used on the lips. Li-FT® saline solution is safe and
effective in removing poorly done lip tattoos.
Laser notoriously does not remove white (titanium dioxide). Saline
removal does not recognize color but rather pigment uniformly so it can be highly effective in removing all colors including white.
