After completing a 1,100-hour training program at the New York Institute of Massage Therapy, Kathryn Upchurch still hadn't quenched her thirst for knowledge. She went on to continue her education and learn additional types of massage, expanding her arsenal to include medical massage, myofascial-release therapy, and hot-stone sessions. This vast back catalog of techniques comes in handy during her custom treatments, and her deft hands allow her to excel at prenatal massage designed for mothers-to-be. Kathryn reserves 15 minutes of each treatment to allow for the client to change clothes, discuss current ailments, and go over the proper at-home care, exercises, stretches, and therapeutic yodels that will help maintain the benefits of the massage.
Inside this spa, filled with neutral earth tones and soft lighting, therapists administer Swedish massages for the mind, hot stone and deep-tissue massages for the body, and raindrop technique massages for an uplifting combination of the two. Microdermabrasion treatments are also available to give clients renewed confidence in their appearance. And in that vein, the technicians also offer two methods of hair removal—waxing and electrolysis—in order to render the body as smooth as a lounge singer’s voice mail message.
Green Tea Hawaii's supplements expedite the process of losing weight. The company’s flagship item, a nutrient-rich powdered drink, dissolves into water and becomes a slenderizing cocktail of green-tea antioxidants, natural caffeine, and amino acids. Each serving of the fruit-flavored drink boosts metabolism and unlocks the ability to smell colors. Green coffee bean extract and Montagna coffee also deliver a natural dose of caffeine, and raspberry ketones increase the body's ability to burn fat via fruit compounds. Various other powdered drinks soak into the body and replenish vital nutrients.
