Experience in the Art of Facial: Relaxing Hot stone Cupping massage What are the benefits of a relaxing massage? Relaxation massage, as its name suggests, is a form of massage therapy. A relaxing massage is achieved by using the complete hands of the therapist gently over the skin, following the muscle contours (soft tissues) of the body. The whole body is usually massaged during this type of treatment. No pain is involved during a relaxation massage, and it’s a very pleasurable experience. Massage is relaxing because of the gentle nature of the therapist’s movements on the body’s soft tissues. It has a calming effect on the nervous system, reducing stress and pain and promoting a healing environment within the body. Gentle kneading and long smooth stroking rhythmic movements benefit the client’s overall health and wellbeing. It is a treatment designed to relax and soothe, not relieve chronic pain or other underlying conditions. Benefits of a relaxation massage: 1) Reduces muscle tension: A regular relaxation massage can reduce muscle tension due to a postural issue. Gentle but firm pressure to particular shoulder muscles will help disperse any tension build-up/tightness in this area. Muscular fatigue from overuse during exercise can also be significantly lessened by having regular relaxation massages. The kneading and stroking movements on the muscle fibres help remove lactic acid build-up, reducing fatigue and discomfort and diminishing recovery time. 2) Improves sleep Relaxation massage relaxes the client and gives relief from stress and the feeling of calm, which can help a person fall asleep more quickly, sleep more deeply and be less annoyed during sleep. Massage therapy relieves postural stress and localized pain so that a person will find it easier to sleep more comfortably. 3) Eases muscle pain A trained massage therapist can isolate specific muscles or muscle groups to treat localized pain. The body starts to open itself up more freely and relax because the different layers of musculature are facilitated, and its extremities are thoroughly treated. Circulation is enhanced, which improves localized inflammation and reduces fatigue and pain and improves energy levels. 4) Improved immunity The body can target its immune response to ward off disease or infection more efficiently by reducing stress hormones and lowering blood pressure. 5) Improved circulation The gentle and soft stroking and kneading movements over the skin can boost the flow of blood circulation peripherally, sending fresh blood to the area giving better local nutrition and accelerating the disposal of toxins and waste matter. This will enhance the recovery of soft tissue injuries locally and improve skin tone. 6) Alleviates anxiety and depression By creating a calming atmosphere and with the healing benefits of skin-to-skin contact and the practical analgesic effects of massage itself, this therapy can alleviate some of the symptoms of instances of anxiety and depression. In this way, a person’s overall wellness can be improved. What Are the Health Benefits of a Hot Stone Massage? A hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy.

BOTOX FOR JAW CLENCHING Botox injections for Jaw Clenching & Teeth Grinding have increased over the past two years. Botox is an effective treatment for jaw clenching, which freezes the muscles responsible for the tension along the jaw. “WHAT EXACTLY IS BOTOX, AND HOW DOES IT WORK?” Botox is a purified protein (Botulinum Toxin A) that blocks the nerve from firing the muscle. This protein is generated by bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. Botox injections are extremely safe and have no attributable risk of causing severe side effects. “HOW DOES JAWLINE BOTOX WORK?” The Botox works by temporarily lessening the tension in the jaw and helps prevent clenching of teeth. Botox injections are a great help, mainly if jaw clenching occurs during the workday due to prolonged periods of deep concentration. “WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM JAWLINE BOTOX TREATMENT?” Botox is injected into the masseter muscle, which runs down your cheek and is responsible for chewing, opening & closing your jaw. The dose should be decided by the physician or dentist based on the strength of the Masseter muscle immediately before injection, and it will differ from person to person. The treatment will take 5 minutes, and it isn’t painful, barely a slight pinching sensation. “WHAT ARE THE COSMETIC EFFECTS?” Botox injections make your jawline slightly slimmer a few weeks post-treatment, as your jaw is not so clenched and inflamed.

Effects should last between 3 to 6 months, and the treatment should be repeated when the grinding starts again. “ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?” Some common side effects are pain and bruising at the injection areas that last for a few days. Unusual side effects can be cases about smile appearance because if Botox spreads to muscles involved in smile formation, it can change the way you look. “ARE THERE ANY BENEFITS?” Absolutely! Botox treatment for Jaw Clenching typically lasts for 3 to 6 months, and during this time, you will have complete protection.
