PlaSon: The Ultimate Acne Treatment!

DESUAR Spa | Day Spa Services in Downtown Los Angeles

Suffering from significant distress from acne? wrinkles? scars?

For many people who have acne, the skin disease affects more than their appearance. Acne can take a toll on one’s emotional health. Researchers have found in study after study that people with acne can also develop:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low self-esteem
  • Poor self-image
  • Decreased quality of life
  • A feeling of being all alone

Even mild acne can affect one’s emotional health. This is especially true for teenage girls. In studies, teen girls often say that acne makes them feel unattractive.

Given that acne can lead to such experiences and feelings, it’s not surprising that researchers have found that people with acne often develop depression or anxiety.

Studies show that the longer acne lasts, the more likely it is to affect one’s emotions. Without treatment, acne can also worsen. If acne becomes severe, scars can appear as the acne clears.

Fret not! We got you!

Introducing the latest technology DESUAR Spa offers for the treatment of acne, PlaSon!

Artemis Distribution Plason From: Artemis Distribution | MedEsthetics


PlaSon is FDA registered, non invasive and quick!

It is a device that uses heat and electricity to penetrate the skin with plasma that allows your skin to rebuild collagen, heal and sterilize active acne.

It is effectively used in transdermal drug absorption, wrinkles, scar, peels, inflammation and wound healing. By opening up the skin with Plasma poration and driving drug absorption with SonoPoration, it is an ultimate TDDS that one can ever dream of.

What is active acne?

When your skin has acne, there are various stages that the skin goes through. Active acne is when the acne or fluid is visible on the skin, accompanied by bumps and sometimes very painful. Other indicators of an active acne infection is redness and inflammation of the facial skin.

Your skin captures and holds onto bacteria and pollution from the outside world and PlaSon stops these free radicals in their tracks allowing your skin to heal and protect overtime. This treatment attacks acne at its core without damaging your skin and virtually zero down-time needed following your visit. The results are stronger, less-wrinkle and clearer skin.

PlaSon Plasma Skin Rejuvenation – FaceMagicHaven

The Plason device also reduces hyperpigmentation and wrinkles.

Results are not 100% permanent, but can be maintained with a course of maintenance treatments (recommended 1-2 per month).


  • Immediately after the treatment the skin may be slightly red, this is normal and will pass in the next 20 minutes or so
  • Please do not place any products on the skin after the treatment for 4-6 hrs, unless supplied by your esthetician
  • Do not go to the Gym or exercise vigorously enough to sweat for 4-6 hrs
  • Try not to touch the treated area for 1 hour after treatment
  • Do not shower or get the treated area wet for 4-6 hours
  • Please take regular photographs of your progress/healing to share with us
  • Please use mineral based make-up after 4-6 hrs to maximize results
  • Please consult with your esthetician regarding SPF
  • Please consult with your esthetician regarding moisturizer
  • If in any doubt please contact your esthetician

Early treatment can prevent these problems. It can clear the skin and prevent acne from worsening. Some people need to continue treating their skin to prevent breakouts. For most people that’s probably a lot easier than dealing with the emotional distress and permanent acne scars.

Go and achieve that youthful and glowing skin with us!

Dad Getting a Massage

Best Spa Packages for Father’s day 2022

Show him how much you value & appreciate him with a getaway to the spa. These packages are bundled, discounted, and sure to elicit smiles from Dads everywhere. The packages and promotions are available from the 1st to the 30th of June.


Well, it’s time we cut our dads some slack! 


50 minutes of CBD Infused Sport Deep Tissue Massage + Foot and Hand Scrub.


Refresh Dad’s body and soul with this premium package!

Incorporating cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, with a therapeutic massage is a natural combination. The properties found in CBD provide relief to those experiencing pain and muscle tension.

What exactly is CBD?

CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant but does not contain the psychoactive drug THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). It has no narcotic effects, and it should not be confused with marijuana. CBD products are sold in a variety of forms, including massage oils.

When combined with therapeutic massage, clients report that they feel even more relaxed than with a massage that incorporates traditional oils and lotions. Studies show that when applied topically, CBD decreases inflammation and pain.

CBD oil works much like regular massage oil. CBD is mixed with a carrier oil – the oil that is used to lubricate the skin. Not only does CBD relax the body during a massage, people report they feel more relaxed throughout the day and often into the nighttime.

This also comes with a feel of our warm, tender touch. Let us knead your hands, toes and soles as every nerve screams a message of healing joy to the other parts of your body. The tingling you will feel—everywhere—is perfectly normal, and you’ll never want it to stop. Get this at Desuar Spa

80min of  Aroma Infused, Customized Massage + 30min Hydrating Facial

Restore dad’s tranquility and peace with this deluxe experience!

Uses fragrant oils extracted from herbs, flowers and fruits to naturally enhance the benefits of massage.

Both massage and aromatherapy are known for their potential benefits for body and mind. Aromatherapy massage combines the two to achieve psychological and physiological well being. Given the range of massage techniques and the variety of essential oils you can use on clients, aromatherapy is another way to create more personalized health and well-being outcomes for individuals, according to their health background.

If you have dry, irritated skin and all the moisturizing in the world isn’t working for you – a Hydrating Facial is something to consider.



Another reason to love this facial – especially if your skin doesn’t react well with facials in general – is this one is suitable for all skin types (even the sensitive ones!)

Here are 5 benefits of a hydrating facial your face will love —

  • Hydration = Less Irritation – moisture is locked in with this facial and allows the skin to heal and repair over time. Say “buh-bye” dry, flaky, irritated skin.
  • Improved Skin Tone & Texture – exfoliation does its job without stripping your face of necessary moisture and oil. With dead skin cells gone, your skin tone and texture reveal a smooth, even surface.
  • Bright & Supple Complexion – that hydrating serum works its magic and aids in moisture retention, balance, and circulation. This gives way to skin that’s full and bright.
  • Decreased oil (in excess) & breakouts – too much oil and you’re prone to Too little oil and your face is begging for moisture. This Hydrating Facial balances and regulates oil production on your face, so you feel more like you’re treating your face than servicing your car.
  • Enhanced Skin Care Product Absorption – because your skin has been cleansed, toned, exfoliated and protected with this facial, the absorption of skin care products on your face will be easier to penetrate the skin. Better absorption means your skin care products have a better chance of working and supporting your skin.

Cellulite on thighs and buttocks

Do you have uneven, lumpy skin on your hips, thighs, or buttocks? This may be a sign of cellulite. Cellulite occurs when the skin overlying certain areas of fat is pulled downward to the deeper tissues by connective tissue bands. This creates an uneven surface. Cellulite is not harmful. It is caused by a buildup of fat underneath the skin. Some women are more predisposed to it than others. The amount of cellulite you have and how noticeable it is can be based on your genes, body fat percentage, and age. The thickness of your skin also affects the appearance of cellulite. People of all body types and weights can get cellulite.

While topical treatments may help to reduce the visibility of cellulite, the effects may not be long-lasting. You’ll need to apply the product daily to maintain results. However, creams don’t remove the cellulite. Instead, they temporarily reduce the appearance of it. The fat cells still exist under the skin.

So, if you’ll ask what’s the best remedy to get rid of these lumps, We got you

5 of the best Cellulite Treatments to get your Summer body ready!


M’lis Wrap

M'Lis Wrap

The M’lis Professional Contour body wrap helps to free and remove trapped waste in the connective tissue, eliminating internal disfiguring deposits and stimulating inch loss. This is not a temporary water loss wrap. Inch loss of 4”-14” is guaranteed. M’lis’ Contour Body Wrap offers permanent inch loss (not caused by excessive sweating). You’re wrapped up there in no sweating, you are actually flushing down toxins and fat!

First, your skin is exfoliated with a scrub, then the treatment cream is applied and a special wrapping technique is used to help firm and lift the “trouble areas”. The wrapping also plays a role in enhancing lymphatic drainage.

This Contour Body Wrap was originally developed by a UCLA biochemist to enhance circulation and lymphatic flow in patients with diabetes and other chronic diseases. Further research revealed that the wrap not only increased circulation but also cleansed the tissue which resulted in healthy inch loss and smoother skin. The Contour Body Wrap is a complete detoxification system for internal and external cleansing, cellulite reduction and inch loss. This body wrap system has been around for over 30 years which is further testament to its efficacy

Like most holistic treatments, a series of body wrap treatments are more effective than just one (ideally 6 treatments). You probably wouldn’t want to do more than 1 treatment per week. The inches will only return if the client goes back to old habits. Eating the right types of foods, proper exercise, and drinking 8 glasses of water per day are always recommended.

There are also a few awesome take home products to compliment the treatment and extend results. However, women who are pregnant or lactating are not advised to undergo this treatment.


Lymphatic Massage

Before and After, Lymphatic MassageLymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, is a gentle form of massage used to relieve painful swelling in your arms and legs caused by lymphedema. This often affects people recovering from breast cancer surgery.

This gentle manipulation affects lymph flow  stimulating and regulating the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems. By clearing blockages and eliminating toxins, this therapy helps transport nutrients to the cells and increases metabolic function.

A massage therapist uses lymphatic drainage massage techniques to move lymph from your tissues to your lymph nodes, which eases the swelling in your tissues.

Cryo Treatment

CoolRestore Device in useCoolRestore is one of the latest, most advanced, and unique Cryo Systems on the market

Cryo Body CoolRestore introduces cold, or cryo, therapy to targeted areas of the most concern with several positive effects.

Its  temperature range of +4 to -4 Degrees Celsius can dramatically impact the local fat deposits. This low range affects the local blood circulation and shrinks blood vessels. This leads to a “numbing” sensation during the treatment. Eventually this stressful freezing condition initiates a cascade of intracellular reactions and stimulates “apoptosis” – a natural death of fatty cells. As a result – reduced local fat deposits

Cryo CoolRestore Elegance performs an advanced treatment which involves exposing the targeted area to extremely low temperatures, which shocks the adipocytes and leads to a sped up, and more effective, adipocyte elimination process. Studies have shown that exposing the skin to freezing temperatures accelerates cell apoptosis which is a natural and controlled cell death. Cells will gradually be eliminated within months after the treatment and be removed out through the lymphatic system. This treatment is also available at DESUAR Spa



Wood Therapy

Wood TherapyWood therapy is a vigorous massage technique that utilizes wooden, handheld tools, such as rolling pins and vacuum-suction cups.

Since wood therapy is a massage technique, it may be safe to assume that you will experience the benefits of a massage, such as relaxation and alleviation of tight muscles.

It  reduces the appearance of cellulite since massage therapy can support lymphatic drainage, which may reduce cellulite’s appearance.

Massage can also help stretch and elongate skin tissue, which may also make the skin appear smoother.

Summer Prep Starts Now

Desuar SPA Endospheres Celullulite Reduction

There are so many treatments for body contouring on the market, but the best one for cellulite reduction and lymphatic drainage is Endospheres at DESUAR Spa Downtown.

Endospheres Therapy® is the latest and greatest in non-invasive and non-surgical body contouring technology. The benefits include muscle toning, visible reduction of cellulite, lymphatic drainage (which helps the effects become permanent), pain relief and improvement in the texture of the skin. The push-pull of the microvibration stimulates muscle tissue, which improves tone.Clinical studies have shown that Endosphères Therapy provided some clients with pain relief by improving tissue oxygenation, circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Endosphères Therapy® is a new technology that uses an innovative “Compressive Microvibration™” system, a treatment that, through a roller device composed of 55 silicon spheres, generates low-frequency mechanical vibrations within the underlying tissue.These compressions create a pumping effect within the vessels and lymphatic system to restore the skin and its functionality. Additionally, it helps to decrease the peeling of skin and the presence of cellulite in the body. Thus, providing you with a refreshed look.

Depending on the amount of fibrous tissue in the area treated, some clients may experience mild discomfort at first with the push-pull action. However, the sensitivity of tissue gradually decreases during the course of the initial session and subsequent sessions after. With an active, healthy lifestyle, some clients may experience lasting results for up to six months. However, regular maintenance cycles are strongly recommended to ensure longer-lasting results.



The Endosphères Therapy® method has been enriched with the sensor system, a pressure-control mechanism, which allows it to sense and accurately assess the amount of pressure applied in relation to the type of tissue and the number of sessions already completed. No other device can adjust its action in this way automatically.

Endosphères therapy is effective on the whole body and allows you to target specific areas of your body that you wish to see improvement in.

Benefits of a Couple’s Massage

Couple’s Massage

Benefits of a Couple’s Massage

Is it time for your date night? There are many ways for you to spend your time with your partner, but a couple’s massage is one of the most enjoyable and relaxing activities that you can do together. Perhaps you could do one before going to the usual dinner date. Aside from the bonding that you will be able to experience, a couple’s massage has a multitude of benefits.

A couple’s massage can revitalize your body.

According to Dana McNeil, a licensed marriage and family therapist who founded the Relationship Place in San Diego, California, undergoing a couple’s massage can give you an experience of being connected to softer energy and push away the energy from the outside world. Moreover, a couple’s massage can give you a lowered heart rate, making you lose the desire of participating in strenuous physical activity and anxious thinking that could only trigger stress. This type of massage is the best way to experience peace and tranquility and be by your partner’s side.

Experience something new.

Going to the movies or just eating outside is very common and can be very repetitive and boring. Going for a couple’s massage lets you and your partner break the chain of repetition and explore something new. Being able to do something new together, try out activities that are out of the usual, and being able to bond together is what makes a relationship amazing.

Benefits of a Couple’s Massage

Enjoy a quality time together.

Due to different and hectic work schedules, being able to find enough time to spend together with your partner without the daily distractions could be very difficult. Even when having dinner outside, checking your phone for emails from work could also be very tempting. Massages will allow you to forget all your worries and at the same time relax with your partner. It is like both of you have a vacation together, but you do not have to be away for a long time. You would not even need to take a day off or worry about accommodations. Being able to be pampered and treated by a professional massage therapist is surely the best way to bond with each other and reconnect.

Relieve your stress and anxiety.

Stress and anxiety could be one of the major setbacks in a relationship especially if one or both of you is suffering from anxiety. This could put a strain on your relationship at some point in your life if it will not be controlled. By getting a massage, you help your body release hormones that will ease your tension and decrease the levels of stress you are feeling. After your session with the massage therapist, you will be able to have a good conversation without a jumble of thoughts in your mind.

Triggers more feelings of affection.

Aside from the fact that a massage can encourage the release of hormones that helps in making a stress-free communication with your partner, touch could also stimulate your social hormones as well as serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin. Combining all of these hormones together can lift your spirits and make you feel uplifted even long after your massage is over. At the same time, you will experience an elevated amount of affection for your partner which may allow you to find a new appreciation for them. A good massage encourages intimacy. To add to the benefits of hormones that are released during a massage, it could also increase your emotional and physical intimacy more than you have experienced for a while.

A couple’s massage can make you happy.

A licensed massage therapist, Amanda Berman, revealed that a massage can release endorphins, a hormone, or a combination of the brain’s chemicals that gives you a happy and good feeling. This aids not only in reducing stress, anxiety, and depression but at the same time, help in feeling more energized.

McNeil also added that a soothing and relaxing activity can slow and extinguish the release of cortisol, the stress hormone. A massage is also a good way of helping you release all the pent-up emotions that could only trigger stress and make you incapable of compromising with your partner. This will improve your ability to converse with your partner and will make you happy not only during the massage but in the long run.

Start an open conversation.

Since a couple’s massage will give you a stress-relieving feeling, it will be very easy for you and your partner to open up emotionally and let go of defenses that you might have been holding against your partner. With this, you will be able to strengthen your connection with your partner and be able to sit quietly side by side without feeling anxious to rush and fill the void of the conversation. Thus, you will be able to rediscover each other’s personality, thoughts, and feelings.

Couple’s massage is an amazing bonding experience.

Put your relationship to the next level by doing something out of the ordinary. A vacation could be a very good way to escape from reality and just have fun together, but not everybody could afford to take a break from work for that long. However, a spa day would be more affordable, and it would not be difficult to find time for it. The experience from a massage could be a good topic for weeks but a movie or a dinner date would be a memory that would only last for hours or less.

Before booking your couple’s massage, it is suggested that you start with a one-hour session of your preferred massage. You have a wide range of choices from deep tissue, Swedish, hot stone, and other massages. You and your partner can avail of different types of massages and you do not need to have an identical treatment because you may not have the same preferences. The good thing about expert massage therapists for couple massages is that they familiarize themselves with couples and have an individualized treatment for each client.

A traditional, solo massage session could be relaxing but it is way more fun if you are with someone who you love. A couple’s massage also gives the feeling of security because you are experiencing a massage with someone who you know well and comfortable to be with. It is important to know that being with someone means you have to make a compromise to what treatment both of you must take because you and your partner can take unique and specific treatments. A couple’s massage is a perfect way to celebrate a special event such as a birthday, anniversary, or just a weekend or day-off when you like to relax.

If you find your usual activities with your partner starting to be boring, spice things up by going for a couple’s massage. Also, there are numerous physical and mental benefits that it can offer. It helps by relieving the stress in your relationship and allows you to have some quiet time together in the most relaxing way possible.

Why Does a Foot Massage Feel So Good?

Foot Massage
Foot Massage

Why Does a Foot Massage Feel So Good?

Wherever you go and whatever you do, your feet continuously work hard for you. You walk everyday and it is actually a good form of exercise. However, walking for long periods of time in just one day can cause too much strain in your feet. This is why you have to give them a break and pamper them by having a foot massage. The great thing about this is that it does not only provide relaxation for your feet but an overall improvement to your health and entire body as well.

Foot massage has been a form of relaxation that has been existing for hundreds of years in different cultures around the world. It has not only been used to relax the body, but it was also done to improve the body’s health. Today, the majority of the forms of foot massage have incorporated elements from other types of disciplines like shiatsu and reflexology. Shiatsu is a Japanese massage and bodywork that revolves around the concept of traditional Chinese medicine like the application of chi meridians to provide effective medical treatment. On the other hand, reflexology is otherwise called zone therapy is a massage and practice that incorporates the application of pressure on particular points on the hands or feet which uses a specific thumb, finger, and other hand massage methods that do not require the use of lotion or oil. Basically, these traditional massage and therapeutic forms work by applying pressure to at least seven thousand nerves so that the foot will release energy blockages throughout the body. A foot massage partnered with reflexology is beneficial in relieving pain, easing stress and anxiety, and help in speeding up recovery from injuries.

In a traditional setting, foot massages are performed using the hands, but treatments may include the use of rollers and sticks sometimes so that it could be easier to stimulate the reflex areas in the foot more easily. Nowadays, the massage is performed in almost every spa by a professional massage therapist or reflexology practitioner.

Incorporating reflexology into foot massage is one of the most common ways to perform it because it is proven to be very effective. To understand its benefits, it is important to know the science behind it. The human’s feet are composed of 26 bones and 33 joints with approximately 7,000 nerve endings termed as reflexes. These reflexes are connected to each organ of our bodies. With that, applying gentle pressure to particular reflex points on your foot will stimulate the nervous system to open up energy pathways that may have been congested or blocked. Here are some pressure points and the organs that they are linked to.

This treatment is one of the most common ways to relax and enjoy and it provides a positive impact not only on your feet but on your entire body. To expound on these, here are some benefits of foot massage.

Provides a sense of balance and well-being.

One of the objectives of a foot massage is to bring back our body’s natural balance. Also, if you are looking for a great way to relax and rejuvenate yourself, a foot massage would be for you. The massage provides a pause from the troubles of everyday life. When you leave the spa, you will be refreshed and have a feeling of contentment.

Stress is reduced.

A foot massage will stimulate the drop of cortisol, the stress hormone in your body. It works when firm pressure is applied to the solar plexus area of your foot, by doing this technique a significant decrease in this particular hormone will be encouraged.

From a study featured in the Journal of Clinical Nursing in 2010, undergoing a soothing and relaxing foot massage when you are stressed because of a death of a loved one can help you deal with this stressful grieving period. Experiencing a foot massage during these times provides consolation and can help you balance the need to grieve and adapt to changes in life.

In relation to this, a foot massage is also beneficial for those suffering from depression. This is because specific pressure points on the feet are capable of alleviating the symptoms of depression. To cite an example, the area in the center of the big toe, the spot in the middle of the ball of your foot, or the ball of the foot located under the big toe are linked with stabilizing emotions and mental health. Targeting and putting pressure on these particular points for a few minutes two to three times a day can be helpful in relieving symptoms of depression.

Foot Massage

A foot massage improves blood circulation. Since a foot massage involves massaging the extremities, it helps with the circulation of blood around the body which in turn promotes cell repair and cell growth.

It relieves pain.

Our feet are carrying us everyday but we forget how much pressure they must endure especially when we are overweight. We only tend to notice them only when they start to ache. Before they even hurt, they actually received a lot of tension already. Since the massage helps in improving circulation, your muscles will be stimulated and there will be a reduction in tension. With this, pain is often eased.

It will help you sleep better.

From an interview made by Michele Stevens, a reflexologist for Healthista, performing foot massage and reflexology can help in getting a good night’s sleep. The massage help you relax which makes falling asleep easier.

It helps your body get rid of toxins.

This type of massage improves circulation in your feet making it easy for your blood and lymph systems to carry away toxins.

A foot massage gives you the chance to check for feet problems.

If you usually neglect your feet because you are busy, going for a foot massage will give you an opportunity to see whether you have blisters, corns, bunions, and toenail problems and be able to treat them immediately.

If you go to a spa, a licensed professional massage therapist will receive you. A foot massage is included in every full-body massage, but some people really enjoy having the full time spent on massaging their feet. Undergoing the procedure in the hands of a skilled therapist is very effective and beneficial for your overall health and relaxation. If it is your first time to have this kind of massage, you will expect to have it before or after a foot bath and skin exfoliation. The massage therapists will apply pressure on your feet using their thumbs and fingertips and prioritize areas at the top, bottom, heel, and toes of your feet to give you the best relaxation experience.

The reason a foot massage feels awesome is that it allows your muscles to relax and stimulate the release of hormones in your body that makes you relax and feel a sense of calmness. Every time the levels of these hormones are high, you become more tense and stressed. Basically, a foot massage makes the entire body relaxed because it does not only target the foot but the entire body as well. This works by stimulating specific areas of your feet to ease the tension in your body, especially in your lower back and legs. Furthermore, the massage corrects all imbalances in the body.

Lymphatic Massage for Weight Loss

Lymphatic Massage for Weight Loss

Losing weight is one of the most difficult things to do. Though it is very important because it will not only make you look good, but feel good as well, the steps you have to undergo in a conventional weight-loss method takes a lot of patience and determination. Sometimes, even with so much hard work, the number on the scale won’t just move. For sure you really want to get rid of your excess weight and free yourself from face puffiness, body swelling, skin problems, and cellulite. If you are looking for a much easier but more effective way of losing weight, a lymphatic drainage massage treatment might just be the solution to your problem.

A lymphatic drainage massage is a type of treatment that uses natural and manual techniques to improve the body’s lymphatic system by about 20 times as much. The lymphatic system is like a pump that keeps your body fluids constantly moving. It is very important because when it is inactive or blocked, there could be numerous health problems in the body from a buildup of lymphatic fluid, bloating and swelling too much water retention, and compromised immunity. Also, too many toxins accumulated in the body causing unnecessary strain to your internal organs.

In case you have been following a strict diet and exercise regimen but the results you have seen are not as much as you expected and wanted, a sluggish lymph system could be the problem. With that said, a good lymphatic drainage massage could be the solution. As this massage releases toxins that have built-up in the body, your body receives the care it needs and recharges your body by directing energy and blood flow towards the fat cells.

To address these problems, a lymphatic drainage massage uses light pressure and rhythmic movements to prompt lymph flow. This enables our system to get rid of lymph fluid naturally because it will be redirected to the unblocked lymph nodes. Moreover, because the excess fluid is channeled to the body’s natural filtration system, excess wastes and toxins that have been accumulating in the body are eliminated.

Undergoing a lymphatic drainage massage has many health benefits. Among these are the following.

Lymphatic Massage

Reduction of cellulite can be observed.

As the circulation in your body improves because of the application of pressure, cellulite present in your body will be reduced noticeably because of the massage. It is also a good way to prevent the building up of cellulites in the beginning.

The immune system can be boosted.

The lymphatic system plays an important role in the immune response by assisting in fluid balance in the entire body and removing bacteria from tissues at the same time. Increased blood circulation also allows the body to be more efficient in carrying disease-fighting white blood cells throughout the body.

It strengthens the nervous system.

From a study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, with improved lymphatic circulation caused by a lymphatic drainage massage, the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) balance of a person improves by increasing the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) activity. This also results in a decrease in risks of having an autoimmune disease, and restoration of homeostasis. Along with this, there is a decrease in physiologic stress, psychological stress, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Skin elasticity is improved.

A good massage such as a lymphatic drainage massage promotes blood circulation throughout your body which encourages new cell growth. This results in an enormous reduction in the number of fine lines and wrinkles in your skin. The massage also improves skin tightness and gives it a youthful and elastic feeling.

Joint pain is reduced.

Because a lymphatic massage improves circulation, tissue swelling, and inflammation that causes joint pain will be lessened.

Lymphatic drainage massage will help you lose weight. There are many times when we cannot exercise regularly so going through lymphatic drainage massage becomes a primary choice. The treatment is also a good way of releasing and disposing of toxins and wastes out of the body. This is very important as excessive amounts of wastes in the body contribute to weight gain.

The massage enables weight loss because of linked benefits like the following:

Lymphatic drainage massage is very relaxing.

Like other forms of massages, a lymphatic drainage massage is very soothing and is good in relieving stress and anxiety making an effective tool to boost one’s well-being. Aside from these factors, stress, and anxiety, are important to consider when losing weight because the increase in cortisol which is the stress hormone, results in a significant weight gain especially when there is an influx of the hormone in the body. Unwinding and continually going for a massage will decrease the levels of cortisol which helps in preventing weight gain related to stress.

Water retention is reduced.

The water composition of the body is about 70 percent and you will have water retention when fluid accumulates in the tissues or body cavities. Usual symptoms for water retention are stiff joints, swelling in your feet, ankles, and hands, and weight gain. Because the primary role of the lymphatic system is to transport and get rid of fluid toxins, excess water that is not needed but is retained in the body is also thrown out through the lymph system. A lymphatic drainage massage promotes the release of water retention because it supports the circulation of the lymph vessels and nodes.

Metabolic rate increases.

A healthy lymphatic system means you also have a healthy metabolic rate. Likewise, a higher metabolic rate indicates that you burn more fat in your body even if you are only sitting or being inactive. A lymphatic drainage massage makes sure that your metabolic rate will not slow down so that you will avoid gaining weight. The results are also long-lasting because your metabolism is raised as time goes by.

Liver and kidneys are supported.

A lymphatic drainage massage supports the liver and kidneys which immensely benefits weight loss. To understand how this works, it is important to note that organs in the body function not individually but as a system. A properly functioning kidney and liver are important for weight loss because these organs are responsible for getting rid of toxins. A good lymphatic drainage massage on these areas promotes circulation and circulation allows the liver and kidneys to detoxify our bodies. Furthermore, organs that are well-functioning support the process of burning internal fat.

However, a lymphatic drainage massage must be avoided by people who are pregnant, suffering from cancer, have inflammation in the body, have blood clots in the legs, and suffers from lymphatic gland inflammation and lymphadenopathy.

A lymphatic massage is truly an effective way of losing weight. It helps with detoxification which will lead to weight loss. Despite this, this treatment is not a magic pill where you can get all the results you want in just one session. Like other manual techniques, a lymphatic drainage massage must be done regularly and continuously to achieve the wanted results. 10 to 12 sessions are recommended to be able to cleanse and boost one’s lymphatic system.

As a whole, the lymphatic drainage massage is an efficient, effective, and convenient way of losing weight without worrying about side-effects or pain and discomfort during the procedure. The most amazing thing about it is that it supports a well-rounded weight loss program.

How Massage Can Help Induce Labor

Pregnancy is one of the most difficult times a woman could ever experience, aside from giving birth itself. Sometimes, it’s just difficult to push to let the baby out. This is where natural techniques like induction massage come in. Before discussing the benefits of induction massage in inducing labor, it is important that you know what an induction massage is.

An induction massage is a method or technique used to induce labor through massage. It is an alternative for women seeking natural ways to encourage labor especially if they are afraid of acupuncture. This type of massage is suitable for mothers-to-be who are suffering from anxiety, stress, and fatigue. An induction massage can relax you and bring you back on track to labor.

The next question is when should you undergo an induction massage? The best time for it is during full-term pregnancy. A full-term pregnancy is defined by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) as the five-week window period before a child is born. The few days leading up to labor can be a very uncomfortable and stressful time for the mothers-to-be, this is where an induction massage comes in to make things easier for them. Like any other procedure, it is important that you are selective who is going to perform it and how it is performed because during this five-week window period before a baby is born, the child’s liver, lungs, and brain are still continuously developing. Make sure that the procedure is done by an expert in that field to get the full results and avoid any form of injury. Also, do not have an induction massage until you reach the five-week window of your pregnancy.

Learn how an induction massage is perform before undergoing one. A licensed massage therapist will use safe massage techniques such as a deep-tissue massage with firm strokes pressing deep into the muscles, a Swedish massage that employs long strokes to muscles and gives attention to joint mobility, and a shiatsu massage wherein pressure and tapping on acupressure points will be conducted to stimulate the natural energy or qi of the body.

If you are wondering if the massage therapists will touch your abdomen, well, it depends. There are massage therapists who opt not to massage the abdomen. On the other hand, there are those who do massage the belly part but apply very light pressure only.

Massages are generally very good for your physical, emotional, and mental well-being. When you are pregnant, a good induction massage can help in alleviating joint pain, relaxing your mind, giving you renewed energy, alleviating stress, and helping you maintain a healthy pregnancy. These benefits are discussed in detail below.

How Massage Can Help Induce Labor

An induction massage improves circulation.

If you are pregnant, blood volume in your body increases dramatically to as much as fifty percent. Blood flow that reaches your legs usually becomes sluggish. Moreover, levels of anticoagulants in your blood that are designed to prevent hemorrhaging during delivery rise naturally. Due to all of these circulatory changes in your body, you are at risk of having blood clots in your lower legs specifically in the calves or inner thigh. With this, massage experts will use very light and slow strokes on your legs. They also avoid any deep massage and applying strong pressure on your legs because this may dislodge a blood clot. In addition to this, they avoid deep-tissue massage, deep acupressure, shiatsu, cross-fiver, and percussive tapping on the legs. All of their massage strokes will aim to move to the heart.

The massage helps in body pain.

Induction massage methods utilize designed rhythmic movements that work deep into the body to boost circulation and relieve the strain in your muscles and joints. It works by easing sciatic nerve pain and reducing swelling.

As your stomach becomes bigger, it is likely that you will have sciatic nerve pain because of the pressure placed on the muscles of your lower back and the pelvic floor of your uterus. This pressure will move down the legs which results in swelling and additional pressure is placed on the nerves. An induction massage can release tension within your muscles which will help by easing swelling and relieving your pain.

Joint pain is very common as your baby grows because too much pressure is placed on the main blood vessels in your body because of poor circulation. The heaviness of your uterus can also cause the joints to swell and your legs to hurt. An induction massage can help by stimulating the soft tissues and reduce the fluid retention within your joints.

It improves your posture.

Maintaining a good posture and alignment is also important in reducing body pain. Doing this is difficult as your baby becomes bigger and bigger and you will notice later on that the extra weight you are carrying everywhere can cause you to have poor posture. This can cause other problems such as joint pain and muscle spasms because of the heavy pressure applied to them. By undergoing an induction massage, it helps by improving muscle flexibility and tone, which will make your body more suited to take on the additional weight.

It relaxes the mind and gives renewed energy.

An induction massage is a good way to alleviate stress. A research conducted by the University of Miami School of Medicine reveals that an induction massage has numerous beneficial effects such as lowering of anxiety. In another study, researchers were able to discover that this type of massage is capable of elevating levels of serotonin and dopamine which are collectively called the feel-good hormones. An induction massage can also contribute to decreasing the levels of cortisol which is an indicator of stress. Overall, this massage can improve your mood and state of mind. Researches have also shown that, for many pregnant women, an induction massage has other great benefits. It can boost the immune system’s ability to fight off viruses and tumors and improve sleep.

The massage can make more space for your baby to come out.

An induction massage can help in releasing your sacrum and pelvic area so that more space is created for your baby to come down into your pelvis. This is very important for easier child delivery.

The massage can stimulate the release of specific hormones that causes labor.

Undergoing this method can stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system to encourage labor. This is made possible as the massage decreases the levels of stress hormones in your body and elevates the natural hormone, oxytocin, which is the main hormone responsible for childbirth and mother-child bonding. Moreover, the massages let your body have a deeply relaxing state and at the same time, stimulate points in your body that allow it to do whatever it is meant for it to do.

If you are still wondering if a massage during pregnancy is safe, then it is best that you ask for advice from your doctor. Just in case you decide to have an induction massage, make sure that you get someone who has a license, experience, and specializes in this type of massages. Also, never go through any massages while you are still in your first trimester. Though a massage cannot cause a miscarriage, the risk is high during this period.

Just do not forget that prior to undergoing any induction massage sessions, it is important that you inform and discuss this with your doctor. If you think you will be needing an induction massage because of the benefits that it can offer, then go for it.
