Massage for Healing
Normally being covered in mud is considered a bad thing. Not so at Massage for Healing. That's because the center's mud is filled with herbs and mineral-rich clay from the Dead Sea, blended to remove toxins and leave skin as soft as a teddy bear's neck pillow. However, mud treatments are just one of the staff members's services. They also offer various massage modalities. For example, smooth, heated stones melt muscle knots, and long, flowing Swedish strokes ease tension. And, during four-hand massages, an additional massage therapist joins in to double the relaxation.
