LIKE A PIG LOVES MUD, SO SHOULD WE!

Spa-Go's loves muds and wouldn't think of having a menu without them. Spa-Go's muds are green, organic and nutritious detoxification aids. We use M, Mud for the Face and Moor mud applications for body, baths and compresses. I love a nutritious mud wrap. A mud wrap detoxes and pulls the waste and toxins from the body and skin. Its rich in nutrients and is both giving and taking, so I consider it very zen and healing. Mud has been used since ancient times. Mud treatments have many benefits read below for more information.

Moor Mud Bath and Body Wrap:
  • Professional athletes use moor mud for sore muscle relief, post-workout muscle tightness, increase flexibility, spasms, sprains and fatigue.
  • Increases body temperature which increases circulation and mobilization of wastes for excretion.
  • Used to relieve pain and increase mobility in joints and muscles.
  • May increase rate of healing in post-operative patients.
  • Weak immune system patients use it routinely to increase their white blood count - AIDS/HIV, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to name a couple.
  • Used for detoxifying patients due to its ability to increase circulation, sweating and nutrient load.
  • Excellent for insomniacs, Type A personalities and others who are under tremendous stress.
When something works as deeply as moor mud, numerous conditions get treated at the core. (List of conditions below) There are no chemicals or additives in Torf Krasno's Moor Mud. Moor Mud is also the common name for our Balneo Peat. It is a 100% natural product imported from the famous spa country of Czech Republic.

Peat baths, also known as moor mud baths, are used daily by European medical doctors to restore people's health. This moor mud spa therapy works from the inside while most therapies only alleviate surface symptoms. Tight sore muscles, joint stiffness and eczema are not surface problems. In order to effectively treat these conditions, the therapy must be penetrating, consistent and full body. A moor mud bath does this. The benefits from one moor mud bath last for days and may resolve the condition. An increase in flexibility is typically seen after the first treatment.

The natural acids and nutrients in peat are the driving force behind its healing abilities. As one aspect of peat opens the skin pores allowing nutrients in and acids out, another aspect actively draws out lactic acid and metabolic wastes from tissues. After just one treatment, your muscle aches, joint stiffness and skin health may be markedly improved. No drugs. No ointments. A natural, effective therapy.

LEARN THE VALUES AND BENEFITS OF A SPA-GO'S BODY WRAP

Body Wraps are offered with Spa-Go's. You can have a wrap to give you a intense relaxation experience. Your goals can be hydration based or nutrient based. A wrap is also performed on a massage table. You sit on a plastic sheet while your therapist applies product to your back area. You then lie down and the therapist continues to apply product to as much skin as possible. Next they wrap the plastic sheet around you, a solar blanket and duvet is customary. You are generally given a scalp/temple massage, offered water through a straw and soothed while you process. You should be wrapped at least 20 minutes. Wraps are heat treatments so anyone with heart conditions should mention that a looser wrap and no solar blanket, please...

Many enjoy the heat and the cocoon wrap. I have clients that say they feel like a baby, very safe and warm and enjoy this as an emotional relaxation service. I also have those that feel trapped and claustrophobic. I personally like my feet left out and can only have a wrap for 10 minutes without going stir crazy. I am ADD and although I enjoy a small enclosed areas for meditation and quiet purposes, the bondage of wrap makes me feel out of control, nervous, anxious and unenjoyable. So, it's not for everyone.

I have many clients with joint problems enjoy a wrap with a medicated gel and the warmth seems to aleviate their arthritic conditions. Some wraps are recommended to leave on for greater absorption throughout the day.

BODY SCRUBS EXFOLIATE, REJUVENATE AND RENEW THE SKIN

Body Scrubs are offered with Spa-Go's in delicious delightful blends. Spa-Go's has two luxury brand sugar scrubs from their Hawaiian Islands and their Heaven on Earth Collections retailing at just $28.00 for 16 ounces. Having an organic sugar scrub is absolutely healthy, pampering and nutritiously healing for the skin. You can use a scrub to your feet, hands and body.

Many of our clientele have never had a body scrub and don't really know the benefits and values of having one. You will generally see sugar scrubs or salt scrubs for sale. Let's go over the differences in your choice.

We recommend sugar scrubs for exfoliation and most all body experiences. Salt is abrasive only beneficial when used as a soak or with compresses, letting the salt bring out the toxins and help drain fluids from the skin (as with epson salts and a sprained swollen ankle). As a body treatment, we recommend sugars.

Note: If your only use of a scrub is for your feet I would recommend salt. Using a salt mixture all over your feet and then soak in the salt scrub creates a salty mixture of water to help drain and relieve water retention, swelling and arthritic conditions in the ankle and joints.

A scrub is performed on a massage table with the client on a plastic sheet. Your technician begins by applying a nutrient rich sugar scrub all over your body. You may wish to wear disposable underwear, an old tube top style bikini or your staff person will wrap you in loose towels. After the application of product you are then either wrapped in an ultra moisture hydration wrap or wiped down with hot towels, a sponge bath or sent to the shower. You generally then return to the massage or treatment table for a application of moisturizer or body butter for the ultimate nutritious body cocktail.

A scrub usually lasts 20-30 minutes, it's necessary to remove dead skin, it cleans all of you, scents your skin, stimulates circulation and improves skin condition. Best of all it feels heavenly!

Choose between our many delicious custom blends by calling our mixing specialist or send a basket or body scrub to a friend today.

SPA-GO'S FACIALS AND YOU

Spa-Go's facials are great for skin cleanliness, skin conditions, signs of aging, fine lines and wrinkles, acne and/or rosacea conditions. Facials are generally performed on a massage or facial table where you relax, music is played to soothe you emotionally and remove your mind from day to day clutter. Oxygen, steamed heat or hot towels are offered and begin your session. Facials are necessary to keep you looking and feeling your best, your facial skin will be maintained to the absolute best condition possible and the results will be noticeable.

Some tips to remember when having a facial is to have all your make-up removed and be dressed in a spa wrap so that your specialist has access to your neck, bust area (decollate) and shoulder regions. A good facialist/esthetician will clean your skin, exfoliate and remove the dry and dead layers of skin, mask you in a rich vitamin rich goal oriented mask and then moisturize, massage and apply a toner, a serum and a sunscreen. A great facialist/esthetician asks if you would like extractions before your service. A great facialist/esthetician remains with you at all times and while you are processing your mask cares for your hands and feet and never leaves your side. With Spa-Go's, we only hire the very best! Our trained professionals are specifically selected for the needs of the client. Health, wellness and pampering are in each treatment.

Spa-Go's offer basic facials on Monday's, in home or at a location of your choice, for just $80.00. Weekly rates and specialty facials are priced at $125 and up. You can upgrade to a fruit or chemical peel, add extraction and waxing services or choose an upgraded healing experience such as our "Native American Spirit Experience" where you begin with a smudge, special native American Indian flute music and actual drumming over you for a clearing and cleanse of your energy and a calling of your guardians.

I love being at home when I get facial because I never want to put make-up over a new facial, my hair is never right after being wrapped and I don't want to be seen. I am also very relaxed, whip up a yogurt smoothie and enjoy putting my feet up.

OUR BODY'S SKIN AND IT'S ROLE TO GOOD HEALTH

August is definitely a month where skin is in need of a little tender loving care. The sun's damage, dry weather, smog and air pollution, and dehydration from not drinking enough water are all part of the culprits. Also, the culprits are soaps, moisturizes, perfumes and oils full of cheap, toxic, low quality ingredients and synthetic smelling crap!

You can see that I understand and treat the skin as something worthy of care, nutritional feeding, exfoliation and watering. Our skin is the largest organ of our body's system. The importance of our skin is not just to look good and to feel soft, it's that our skin is healthy so it can do what it's job in our body's operating system is designed to do... Breathe and protect our internal operating system. Skin is porous so it holds dirt and oils as well as nutrients and fragrance. If your skin is full of clogged pores it can't breathe 100% and your entire system suffers. You can treat the outer area of your skin, but good skin condition comes from how you treat the insides of your body. Your skin is a reflection of your entire operating system. There is an old saying that you can't fool the skin. Meaning, the skin shows the signs of life's abuses.

Your skin's condition is one of the first things people notice, behind the designer labels and tags is the real age of the skin, looking good or looking "not so good". Face first, hands and neck second and third. You can't hide the abuse of poor nutrition, prescriptive medicines, lack of hydration and the horrible effects that smoking has on the face and lip tissue. You can easily guess someone's age range through the condition of their skin. It's not just about having a great facial, but a great body care facial as well.

Don't be doom and gloom reading this post. I have over 15 years experience treating the mind, body and skin. Spa-Go's has a new luxury product line that is 100% organic designed for feeding the skin, protecting the skin and nourishing the skin.

Regular facials and body treatments of course make you glow, sparkle and feel good, but regular services to your skin are also health treatments to your main component. Did you also know that regular facials because there is massage and healing movements performed on the heart, throat, third eye and crown chakra encourage health and healing as well as cleaning the skin. Regular facials improve skin tone and lift naturally through the circulation and massage movements in the muscles of the face, neck and chest area.

You can also ask for hand and feet treatments. Spa-Go's has wonderful facial add-ons that include a glycolic hand mask and a reflexology foot massage. Musical therapist accompanies all of our services. We like to recommend Loreena McKennitt's CD, Book of Secrets. It is a celtic style healing journey with moroccan tones and drumming. Music is therapy and we honor your own selections, however, have paired specific music to services for a truly unique experience.

Let us examine the function of the skin: appearance/beauty, protection of internal organs, helps with temperature changes, infection and manufactures vitamin D. How does Spa-Go's help you with your skin? Let me tell the ways, in the next week I will post about the ins and outs of facials, body wraps, body scrubs and mud treatments.
