Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week depending on the human hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles and feet. Please note that we do not do pubic area waxing. Pricing is based on the area being treated and the amount of time for the treatment. Ask your Esthetician for pricing.

It is based on a pseudoscientific system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
Accupressure is a therapy developed over 5,000 years ago as an important aspect of Asian, especially Chinese, medicine.

Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People receive this therapy for many purposes; including to help relieve pain and inflammation as well as to increase blood flow and to support relaxation and well-being. The cups may be made of glass, bamboo, earthenware and silicone. Cupping therapy is certainly trending now, but it is not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical text books in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used Cupping Therapy in 1,550 B.C.
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi (Life Force or Energy Flow) in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences. In the U.S. the practitioners generally hold a burning Moxa stick close to, but not touching, the skin. In this method, the Moxa material is compressed into a stick or pole, looking not unlike an oversized cigar that can be lit and allowed to smolder, producing a unique form of penetrating heat. The smoldering Moxa stick is held over specific areas, often, though not always, corresponding to certain acupressure points. Moxibustion is used for pain due to injury or arthritis, especially in "cold" patterns where the pain naturally feels better with the application of heat. Moxibustion may be used in conjunction with other treatments.
