Cornerstone Healing is an East-meets-West center of holistic health, where modern treatments are integrated with traditional Chinese medicine to emphasize prevention and treating the body and mind. For faces looking to stave off aging, Cornerstone’s Botinol facial provides a fine-line steamrolling and skin-tone burnishing time machine. The treatment begins with a deep cleansing and exfoliation to clear away dead skin, after which the skillful application of vegetal spheres and collagen plumps the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and former presidents. The finishing moisturizer locks in the smoothing benefits of the treatment, and the acupressure facial massage improves lymphatic drainage, helping the body reduce swelling and boost blood circulation and allowing skin to glow brighter than a sun that absorbed a baby sun.
To alleviate tension and stress, opt for a one-hour massage in one of many flavors. The Swedish massage features classic massage techniques for relaxation, including kneading and circular movements. The Tui Na massage utilizes ancient Chinese techniques to massage soft tissues, apply acupressure to meridian points to energize the body, and realign the muscles and ligaments to end musculoskeletal turf wars. Deep tissue applies greater pressure to relieve deeper aches and pains; sports massage addresses specific injuries sustained playing baseball, basketball, or icesketball; and pregnancy massage relaxes both current person and future person.
