       Steam Tent      

Find a healing touch with massage.

 

[Under Construction]

Our Steam Tent system offers a wide variety of additional spa treatment options including: "no-wrap body wraps", aroma therapy, and a special weight management system just to name a few. Most important this is environmentally friendly, as it uses only a few pints of water compared to the many gallons used by other steam systems.

These treatments cover everything from weight loss, cellulite reduction, stress reduction, detoxification, salt/sugar glows, allergy relief, cold & cough-cutter, aromatherapy, Ayurvedic treatments, facials with steam, skin hydration & exfoliation and relief from muscle soreness. Steam Tent treatments also appeal equally to both men and women-a simple steam session can be tailored to your individual preferences by varying the body products applied and the essential oils/herbs used.

Why steam is better than wrapping

Dr. John Welbes, Director the college of Massage Therapy in Omaha, Nebraska recommends steam baths in the treatment of cellulite, finding it superior to body wraps in raising tissue temperature. "Body wraps are very slow," says Dr. Welbes, "it may take an hour to achieve the same temperature increase that you can get in about 10 minutes in a steam bath." According to Dr. Welbes, the heat helps loosen the fatty tissue so that it is less solid and can more easily be broken down.

Potential Dangers to Wrapping:

The wraps and electric blankets that are commonly used to heat clients during a body wrap are often made of plastic. Plastic releases toxins when heated, which can then absorbed by the body, creating more toxicity. The blankets also create an electrical field effect which many people believe is not healthy.
