Massage Enhancements

The following enhancements are offered complimentary with every table massage. They are woven into the massage and take up no additional time.

Hot Towels

Hand towels are heated in a towel warmer and then placed on all areas of your body.  The heat from the towels loosen and relax the muscles and soothe the aches before and during a massage for deeper tissue penetration and healing.

Hot Stones

Massage itself is deeply relaxing, improves circulation, and loosens tight muscles, but the addition of smooth, heated stones will enhance those effects. We incorporate the stones into the massage strokes. By softening and loosening the tissues, the heat from the stones allows us to work deeply without using so much pressure.

Cupping (Rubber Cups)

We use rubber suction cups of various sizes called “Acucups.” Through suction and reverse pressure, these cups can release the fascia, drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen adhesions, and bring blood flow to muscles. They maintain strong suction and are easy to move around tissue, joints and tendons. This method is very gentle yet effective and never leaves bruises.

The following enhancements are $20 each, and will add an additional 10 minutes onto the length of your session. Cannot be booked as a stand alone service. 

Seaweed Clay Mask

This is an intensive and deep cleansing treatment. Seaweeds natural, anti-inflammatory compounds can have a clarifying, refreshing, and exfoliating affect on the skin. This revitalizing clay mask cleanses skin, controls excess oil, and draws out impurities. It calms irritation and redness, leaving the skin smooth and shine free.

Dry Skin Brushing

A simple technique involving long, sweeping strokes towards the heart is used to improve the surface circulation on the skin.
Opening the pores encourages your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes resulting in a stronger immune system, increased energy and metabolism, and healthier skin.

*Includes a take home brush.

Salt Foot Scrub

This treatment is a great way to get a magnesium boost (of which most of us are deficient) while exfoliating the skin and detoxifying the body. Our soothing foot scrub combines Epsom salt with uplifting essential oils. The oil moisturizes skin, which the roughness of the salt exfoliates.  We finish it off by rubbing the feet with a rich magnesium balm and spraying them down with magnesium oil.

Hot Herbal Compress

These herbal compresses are handmade here at BLHH and contain a blend of aromatic and therapeutic traditional Thai herbs from our very own apothecary. The penetrating heat from the compresses is deeply relaxing and the herbs will penetrate into your body through the skin, helping to reduce muscle aches and relieve stress, while also toning and detoxifying the skin. You have the option to take the compresses home after the treatment for further use.

Cool Moonstone Facial

Facial massage with added benefits of cool and warm stone treatments is one kind of natural therapy that can give our face glow and tone. Facial massage gives a relaxing feeling, relieves tension and promotes good circulation of the blood to your face, and the use of deep penetrating heated stones alternated with chilled stones is balancing and recharging.
