Drawn, lifeless faces have become common in recent years, particularly on office workers and cartoon skeletons. Revitalize even the thinnest of skin with today's Groupon: for $75, you get the minivacation spa package (a $150 value) at Majestic Massage for Wellness in Walnut Creek. The package includes a healing lymph-drainage therapy session, crystal Reiki energy healing, dry skin brushing, Tibetan abdominal digestive massage, and a Japanese facial massage.
A 2010 nominee for Best Massage by the readers of the San Francisco Gate, Majestic Massage focuses on Asian and holistic-inspired treatments. Licensed massage therapist Tamara is a graduate of multiple bodywork institutes and employs Japanese and Tibetan techniques in the course of the minivacation package. During the lymph-drainage therapy session, light strokes cleanse the body's lymph nodes, which, when unregulated, fill with fluid and profanities. Surface circulation increases with the dry skin brushing, where an infrared mineral lamp radiates 33 minerals onto the skin. Relaxing crystal-based Japanese Reiki techniques follow. A Japanese hot-stone facial massage repairs damaged skin with a rock so warm and comforting even Sisyphus would embrace it. Finally, a Tibetan abdominal massage aids digestion and detoxifies the body.
Detoxifying your body may help alleviate allergies and body pain, as well as boost energy levels. Your body, freed from the heavy burden of toxicity, can reassert its normal, balanced vitality. A spa-package is the ideal solution for those feeling sluggish, depressed, and itchy-spleened, or those whose political beliefs restrict them to a diet of discontinued Surge soda and polysorbate 80.
