Natural Detox Services

Amethyst BioMat Therapy

The Inframat Pro is a gemstone heat therapy mat that is designed to facilitate better wellness of the body.  This BioMat uses gemstones to channel deep penetrating heat 4-6 inches deep into muscles and tissues.  Our professional BioMat contains Amethyst, Tourmaline and Jade stones.  

 

How does the BioMat work?

 

The Healthy Line BioMat combines several therapies into one wellness-defining experience.  These therapies include Hot Stone Therapy, Far Infrared (FIR) Therapy, Negative Ion Therapy and PEMF Therapy.  The use of heated gemstones greatly amplifies the energetic benefits of the mat, the greater variety of gemstones increases this process.  FIR rays are naturally absorbed into our bodies from the sun.  When using the Inframat Pro, you are exposed to these rays of invisible light which can increase oxygen movement while decreasing pain and inflammation.  Negative ions attract harmful positive ions which can help reduce the number of toxins and harmful metals from your body.  Finally, PEMF therapy is the application of magnetic fields of a particular frequency to the body (7.83Hz).  These specific waves are most in line with the Earth's natural magnetic field mimicking its frequency and intensity.  

 

What can it naturally manage within the body?

Chronic pain, fatigue, detoxification, relax sore muscles, improve blood circulation, revitalize energy levels, decrease inflammation, improve the immune system, balance pH and many more!

Sacred Cacao Ceremony

Enjoy the 2,000 year old tradition of medicinal cacao in a healing and centering environment.  Cacao beans and nibs, not to be confused with cocoa powder or chocolate, has numerous health benefits.  Known by the Mayans as "Food of the Gods," cacao is high in antioxidants, contains many healthy vitamins and minerals including magnesium, improves heart function, can help manage depression, reduces appetite, is anti-aging, detoxifies the liver, builds strong bones, regulates blood pressure, reduces PMS symptoms and has many more benefits!

 

Cacao is also spiritually beneficial to the mind and body as it connects you to Mother Earth.  Indigenous people used ground cacao beans mixed with pure rainwater and flowers to anoint children during baptisms.  Chocolate was considered by the Mayan and Aztecs as the blood of the Earth.  Humans and the Earth were thereby related to each other in this sacred manner.  It was also used for betrothal and marriage ceremonies, for worship of the gods, during funeral and burial ceremonies, and valued so highly it was also used as currency.  

 

Once only used by the royal houses and nobility of the Mayans and Aztecs, cacao is now available to us to use daily or ceremoniously.  Enjoy this ancient drink as part of a private session with your facilitator as we lead you into a relaxed state.  Our ceremony begins with a Palo Santo cleanse, next we set our intentions individually as we prepare the cacao to be consumed.  Music and sound healing may also be used during your ceremony.  Cacao is a heart expander and mind opener, those who have experienced the ceremony have also found it to increase creativity, cleanse negativity and connect to the divine within themselves.  It is a powerful tool used to go deeper into your inner healing.  You are encouraged to meditate, visualize and journal during your time to receive clarity in the areas of love, purpose and personal growth in your life.  

 

$30 (additional participants may join your ceremony for $5 each).  

 

Please do not eat 2 hours before the ceremony to let the cacao have its full effect.  Call Escapes Spa for any questions or to book this specialty service.  Thank you.  

 

Our ceremonial drinking chocolate is sourced from certified organic farms.  It is a sugar free, vegan, GMO and soy free, whole food.  You may also choose to add chili powder, honey, agave syrup, ashwagandha, or cinnamon to add to the natural flavor of cacao.  

 

 

Ear Candling

Many famous civilizations have practiced the healing treatment of ear candling including the Aztecs, Greeks, Romans and Aborigines.  The most noteworthy people in America to practice this treatment were the Hopi Indians of the Grand Canyon region in Arizona.  The term "candle" can be misleading as they are hollow, wick-less tubes made from cotton, flax or hemp fibers infused with beeswax. 

 

Ear candling may be used to alleviate symptoms of colds, earaches, excessive ear wax, allergies, headaches, migraines and many others!

 

How do ear candles work?

A hollow tube is gently inserted into the ear canal.  When lit at the top, the rising air column inside the candle begins to heat up creating a gentle massage and suction effect.  This process loosens compacted earwax and debris.  Our treatment also includes lymphatic massage of the area and the application of Willow bark oil.  

 

Contraindications:

Perforated ear drum, artificial ear drum, ear tubes, eczema or dermatitis of the outer ear, cochlear implant, current or recent infection, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, acute infectious diseases, fever, diarrhea or vomiting, recent head or neck injury, skin infections and pregnancy.  Please consult your medical professional with any questions or concerns prior to receiving this service.  

 

$25.  Please allow 10-15 minutes per ear, one candle per ear is applied during this 30 minute treatment.  

 

Ionic Detox Foot Cleanse 

 

The ionic foot machine works by charging sea salt water through electrolysis to attractive positive and negative ions.  This type of detoxification dates back to Indian Ayurvedic medicine and in Roman times as a way to draw impurities away from the body.  

 

Toxins are charged particles that circulate through the blood in the foot region.  The human feet  contain 250,00 sweat glands and 200,000 nerve endings.  These toxins are attracted to the opposite charged ions and are drawn out into the water by osmosis and diffusion.  

 

The benefits of the foot detox cleanse can include the purging of heavy metals, balance of the body's pH, reduction of pain and inflammation, detoxification of internal organs, boosting the immune system and many more.  It is noted that the the water will change color regardless if the person's feet are in it or not due to water impurities, however there will be 2-3 times more debris in the water when the foot treatment is complete.  Please consult your medical professional should you have any questions or concerns prior to receiving this service. 

 

Contraindications:

Pacemaker or other electronic implements, hypertension, organ transplant, pregnancy or nursing, epilepsy, open foot wounds, are undergoing radiation or chemotherapy, and blood regulating medications. 

 

What to expect during the foot cleanse:

A quiet and private room where you will be seated during the 30 minute treatment.  A variety of books, calming music and detox teas are also offered to make your foot detox session as relaxing as possible.  

 

$35 for the 30 minute treatment

Armpit Detox Session

 

The purpose of this service is the detoxification of the body by ridding toxins that have built up on the skin.  Research also suggests it may boost the immune system and lower breast cancer risk.  The goal is to stop using harmful chemical deodorants and antiperspirants. Once these chemical based deodorants stop being used, the build up will cease and toxins can start to leave the body.  

 

Why stop chemical based deodorants?

 

Research suggests that there is an association between the use of deodorants/antiperspirants and breast cancer.  There are many toxic ingredients in deodorants including aluminum, parabens, triclosan, propylene glycol, talc and phthalates (fragrances).  Skin irritations and allergic reactions are other possible side effects of artificial deodorants.  Finally, these harmful and toxic products can be ineffective and not needed in many people.  Sweat in itself is almost odorless; smells in the armpit areas are caused by bacteria not sweat.  

 

What does our detox session entail?  

 

The client is asked to relax on our massage table as we apply a clay mask to the armpit area.  This mask is allowed to sit on the area for approximately 15 minutes.  It is removed with hot towels and vinegar is applied to the skin to neutralize bad bacteria (provided the client does not have skin sensitivities).  Finally, the client will receive a Himalayan salt stone to replace their current deodorant for home use; our provider will explain to the client how to use the stone so that they may transition away from conventional deodorants.

 

Detox Session and Salt Stone deodorant:  $25
