Maternal Massage

by gingerbraaten on March 21, 2011

Massage therapy for pregnant ladies can relieve the discomforts of pregnancy — and bring a little de-stressification to a mommie-to-be.

Our Tempe massage therapists can relieve some of the pangs of pregnancy, including

  • muscle soreness
  • swelling
  • stress and strain on joints and spine

But more importantly, the massage is a comforting ritual that can make restore a pregnant woman’s energy and peace of mind. A trained maternal massage expert understands these needs. The therapist can accommodate a pregnant woman’s changing body with special pillows and wedges, soft lights and proper bedding.

A maternal massage therapist will take special paints not to over-stretch the mother’s joints and ligaments — these can become very flexible during pregnancies. Deep pressure on the feet, hands, arms, and lower legs is avoided.

Some things to remember about pregnancy massage:

  • It is not a treatment or preventative measure against miscarriage or any serious pregnancy complications.
  • A pregnant woman should talk to her doctor before trying it. Some women who are at risk of preterm labor or suffering from blood clots should definitely not try massage.

Damaged AND Frizzy Hair?

by gingerbraaten on February 16, 2011

People with frizzy/curly hair face serious hurdles when the hair is also damaged. The damage will only worsen if you try to straighten the hair with irons and harsh hair blowing. And in turn, the damage will make the frizz worse — creating a vicious cycle.

Keratin therapy treatments solve both issues — by treating the damage and removing the frizz.

The best benefit: the more you treat your hair, the healthier it will become. With each hair straightening keratin treatment, your hair will become:

• Softer & Silkier
• Straighter & Shinier

And as a bonus, you can save time on the daily maintenance routine for your hair — remember all that blow-drying and heat ironing that you needed to do? By cutting back on those tasks, your hair will get a better chance to recover fully.
