      Massage and Hot Stone Therapy...
      What You Need To Know Before Booking

      Even though you may desire a massage or hot stone therapy, there are some precautions massage therapist need to abide by in order to determine if you are a good candidate for the type of massage selected.

      If you have any questions about whether you should receive a particular type of massage or hot stone session based on your current health condition(s), please contact your doctor and get a medical clearance to bring to your massage session.

      Here are a few medical contraindications (No, No's) and some maybe's for hot stone and some other types of massage therapy.

      Neuropathy
      Neuropathy is a site contraindication but could indicate a full-body contraindication. Obtain a physician’s release before getting stone massage, and avoid any areas of neuropathy so as not to burn the client, who cannot give accurate feedback on the sensation of heat.

      Illness or fever
      Any acute illness or fever is a contraindication for regular massage and stone massage.

      Circulatory and heart conditions
      Conditions such as angina pectoris, arteriosclerosis, coronary artery disease, endocarditis, and congestive heart failure, as well as a history of cardiac arrest or myocardial infarction, require careful consideration of the client’s level of health and a discussion with and release from the client’s physician. In some cases, stone massage at warm instead of hot temperatures can be applied safely. In others, the client’s condition contraindicates stone massage and even regular massage.

      Sunburned skin
      Even mildly sunburned skin does not respond well to stone massage. Opt for regular massage, or put off the session in the event the sunburn is moderate to severe.

      Broken or inflamed skin
      Do not apply stone massage over broken or inflamed skin. Do not apply stone massage distal (beyond the part) to an area of inflamed skin.

      Acute or subacute inflammation
      If a client has been in a recent car accident, she is contraindicated for stone massage even if no signs of inflammation are visible. Local inflammation from a musculoskeletal injury is site contraindicated, and stone massage distal to the injury site is contraindicated.

      Advanced or poorly managed diabetes
      If the client’s tissue is unhealthy and circulation in the extremities is decreased, stone massage is contraindicated. In situations where diabetes is well managed and the client’s tissue condition is good, stone massage can be applied with caution.

      Edema
      If the cause of edema is unknown, the client is automatically contraindicated for stone massage. If edema is present in a particular area because of a diagnosed condition, obtain a physician’s release before the session and avoid the local area. Don’t apply stone massage distal to the site of edema.

      Thrombus, deep-vein thrombosis
      These conditions can be exacerbated by stone massage and are contraindicated.
      Gout Heat aggravates gout and can trigger a flare-up. Regular massage is more appropriate.
      Uncontrolled hypertension Clients with mild or well-controlled hypertension can receive stone massage with a physician’s release. If hypertension is uncontrolled or severe, stone massage is contraindicated.

      High-risk pregnancy
      The heat from the stones can cause complications for clients with high-risk pregnancy. Regular massage by a knowledgeable therapist may be safe with a physician’s release.

      Renal diseases
      The heat from stones causes an increase in general circulation, placing additional pressure on the kidneys. Regular massage may be safe with a physician’s release.
      Rheumatoid arthritis The heat from the stones can trigger a flare-up of rheumatoid arthritis. Regular massage is safer.

About Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil has been touted as a perfectly balanced oil – a necessity for healthy cooking. But did you know, when applied to skin, it can be effective against acne, eczema, scarring, redness and irritation? Applied straight to the skin, sunflower oil is an incredible hydrating agent. Here’s how to use it in your beauty routine!

For Your Face:
Fight wrinkles straight up, no chaser: sunflower oil can be applied directly to the skin (and is often used in infant products, it’s so gentle!). Sunflower oil helps retain moisture; it’s high in Vitamin E, A, C and D as well. Apply directly to the skin as an antioxidant facial oil.
Acne moisturizer: By using sunflower oil as your go-to hydration oil, the vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants help regenerate skin while it fights acne-causing bacteria. Simply dab a little on a cotton pad as you would a toner and apply to the skin.
Eye “cream”: The light texture of sunflower oil and its absorbability make it perfect for under the eye at night. Apply gently with a cotton pad or ball.
Anti-Aging mask: By taking 1 c. plain Greek Yogurt, 3 Tbsp. Sunflower Oil and 2 Tbsp. Lemon juice, you can whip up a face mask good enough for the spa. The oil moisturizes, the yogurt dissolves dead skin cells and lemon juice helps to brighten a dull complexion. Because it helps speed up cell turnover, the mask also works great for irritation and acne in skin as well. Leave on for 20 minutes then rinse thoroughly.
DIY Sunflower Oil Recipes For Your Body:

Sun protection: By ingesting sunflower oil, you get an excellent source of beta-carotene that works from the inside out to help skin – consumption of the oil supposedly makes your skin less sensitive to the sun, neutralizing free radicals that can cause
Sunburn. It’s worth a shot – especially since sunflower already does wonders for your health.
Excellent carrier oil: Where you would normally use a jojoba or almond oil for facials or massages, you can substitute sunflower oil as it absorbs fast and has a light touch.
Recipes For Hair:
Vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants blend with essential fatty acids to make sunflower oil super beneficial for your hair.
Frizz serum: With its light texture, sunflower oil can be used to smooth frizzies and flyaways while injecting some much-needed nutrition into dry hair. Simply take a small amount in the palm of your hand and lightly smooth along your part line.
Weekly deep conditioner: Once a week, take sunflower oil and massage into your scalp to invigorate the hair follicles, moisturize the skin and hair shaft, and smooth the cuticle, preventing breakage. Comb through the hair to the ends, then wrap, leaving on for an hour (or sleep with in the hair overnight) and rinse out thoroughly.

For thinning hair: Sunflower oil is an important source of gamma alpha linolenic acid (GLA) which has been proven to help prevent hair loss, as well as help treatments for baldness and alopecia areata, also known as spot baldness.




Benefits of Jojoba for the skin

Known as Nature’s Multi-Tasker,
Jojoba is ideal for healthily hydrating skin and hair

because it mimics the natural oils our bodies produce,
but purely natural moisture is only the beginning…


Makeup remover
Add a few drops of jojoba oil to fingers or to a cotton ball and wipe over eyes and face.
Rinse off with water and follow with regular cleanser.

Facial Cleanser and Moisturizer
To cleanse skin, apply with a few drops on fingers or cotton ball.
Rinse with water. Pat a few more drops for lasting moisture.

Body Moisturizer
Apply Jojoba Oil immediately after shower or bath, while skin is still damp.

Body & Scalp Massage
A perfect oil for sensitive skin. Massage into body at home or at the spa
for moisture and relaxation. Massage into scalp to help relieve dryness.

Skin Softener
Add a few drops of Jojoba Oil to your regular moisturizer, or add a few drops
to your bath soak to leave skin moisturized, soft, and smooth.

Conditioning Treatment
Smooth a quarter-sized amount over wet hair, focusing on ends.
Shampoo out after 5-10 minutes. You can also apply to damp hair to help smooth frizz.

Lip Conditioner
Apply a few drops to finger and smooth onto chapped lips.
