Colonic & Spa’s massage therapists indulge olfactory zones in therapeutic aromas while the rest of the body enjoys a Swedish-relaxation or deep-tissue massage, which can be tailored to address clients’ specific concerns or ailments. Swedish massages employ several styles of expansive and ebbing strokes to relieve tension, mellow the muscles, and restore free-flowing fluency to the toxin-dispersal chutes of the lymphatic system. During effleurage, the hands smoothly circle the skin as a primer for renewed venous and lymphatic circulation. The petrissage and tapotement strokes knead and knock on pressure points in the humanhide, while friction strokes untie the knots in the shoelaces of your muscle fibers. The vibration stroke encourages blood and muscles in the back and the limbs to move while the lesser-known high-five move at the end generates camaraderie and coolness. Deep-tissue massage kneads bodies into relaxation by applying pressure to aches and pains.
Colonic & Spa
The staff at Colonic & Spa help to expel the toxins that aggregate in, and stubbornly cling to, bodily systems. During colon-hydrotherapy treatments, which take place in a private room, the client reclines on a comfortable, FDA-approved LIBBE machine as a pencil-size tube flushes the colon with warm, filtered water. The solution ushers out dietary debris and toxins, and a ventilation system ensures an odor-free experience. Clients who prefer to multitask are invited to read, work on crossword puzzles, or use a speech-recognition system to write a romance novel.
The spa is also home to massage therapists, who tailor sessions to address clients' specific ailments. Treatments may rely on the expansive and ebbing strokes of Swedish massage to boost detoxification, the more intense pressures of deep-tissue work to release chronic pain, or the lesser-known high-five modality to generate a sense of camaraderie and coolness.
