Aromatherapy is the use oils and hydrosols that are extracted from grasses, leaves, flowers, fruits, bark, wood, bushes, needles, twigs, roots, resins, and shrubs from all over the world and are used for the overall enhancement of our physical and emotional well-being. Modern research has confirmed the therapeutic and medicinal qualities of essential oils as being anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-venomous, anti-depressive, anti-neuralgic, stimulant, nervine, digestive, diuretic and more.

This ancient art and science is a wonderful compliment to massage, reflexology, and body treatments and can be included with your service at no additional charge. Please let us know in advance if you are sensitive to certain oils or smells. Blends are custom made after consultation and suited to your individual needs. Michelle is currently enrolled in Clinical Aromatherapy Level 2 through the Aroma Apothecary Healing Arts Academy. She offers Floracopeia essential oils available for purchase in her O'Fallon, IL office location.
Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage
Ashiatsu (Ash=foot, atsu=pressure) is a type of massage in which the therapist gives all or most of the massage treatment with his/her feet and often uses overhead bars to hold onto for balance (see video). This specialized massage was developed by Ruthie Hardee in the United States in 1999 and continues to be further developed by more advanced instructors. Barefoot massage has been practiced for thousands of years by Buddhist monks and is a part of ancient history in many eastern cultures.

Ashiatsu DeepFeet Bar Therapy® (formerly Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy) is a westernized version of barefoot massage and is very much like Swedish massage with flowing and relaxing strokes, yet the pressure is very heavy on the body like deep tissue massage.

Cupping Massage
Provider(s): Paula Tubbs
Massage Cupping is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and, depending on the type of cups being used; a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.

The intended suction can range from light to heavy. This, along with the movements performed and areas treated by the therapist will produce stimulating (toning) or sedating (draining) effects. It is very important that therapists be able to effectively assess the condition (physical, mental and emotional) of their clients, before the procedure, so they employ the proper application of the cups to produce the desired outcome.

Cupping should not be applied on clients with cases of severe diseases, i.e. cardiac failure, renal failure, ascites due to hepato-cirrhosis and severe edema, as well as hemorrhagic diseases such as allergic pupura, hemophilia and leukemia, and clients with dermatosis, destruction of skin, or allergic dermatitis. Cupping should not be applied to clients where hernia exists or has occurred in the past.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage simply refers to massage techniques that are designed to go to the deeper layers of muscle tissue to break up chronic adhesions ( or "knots"), relax muscle tension, relieve pain, and induce relaxation. Some examples of deep tissue massage which may be integrated into your session are NeuroMuscular Therapy™ and Ashiastu Oriental Bar Therapy®.

If you experience chronic pain and tension please don't be discouraged if you still have tension after one deep tissue massage. We may ask you to come back again within a few days or a week so that you can get the full benefit. (It is also a good idea to plan ahead a monthly visit). If you are unable to come back again soon, it is recommended to use a heating pad, take hot bath epson salt bath, or use cold packs at home to lessen tension or pain. Sometimes after a deep tissue massage you may feel some soreness the next day. Please drink plenty of water after your massage to rehydrate your body and lessen the possibility of soreness. Also limit alcohol and caffeine intake, or anything that causes dehydration, and do not sit for long periods (such as in a car or on a plane) right after your massage.

Infant and Pediatric Massage
Provider(s): Michelle Kingston
Infant massage is a gentle massage tailored for babies. Infant massage has been shown to:

  • Help premature babies gain weight
  • Increase circulation
  • Relieve gas, constipation, and symptoms of colic
  • Relieve stress
  • Create a special bond with the parent/s and caregiver/s

Michelle received training in infant and children's massage from Ivy Tech State College of Indiana in 2001. She has conducted workshops and helped many parents learn to massage their babies and children. She has massaged her own children since birth. If you would like an infant or child massage, please request Michelle for 30 minutes. She will show you how to massage your baby or child during the session. Flexiblity is okay with baby and child appointments. We understand and can reschedule when needed if your baby is too tired, hungry, fussy, etc.

Pediatric massage refers to massage specifically tailored to the needs of children and adolescents. Pediatric massage can be beneficial for helping to relieve stress, anxiety, and symptoms of ADHD, among others. Stress is not just an adult problem. Children can have physical and emotional stress just like adults. They may experience this from school, while traveling, through divorce, from sports, and from other strenuous activities. Massage is beneficial for growth and building the immune system as well. These are all reasons that parents may seek to provide massage therapy for their children. I modify techniques and use very modest draping, or recommend that children and adolescents leave their clothing on for their comfort level. Parental permission is required for those under 18. Reflexology is also a wonderful way to help children relax and get relief from tension in the body.

Lymphatic Drainage
Provider(s): Dawn Ervin, Paula Tubbs
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.

Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage:

The massage is, on the whole, a very light technique. This is because the practitioner is trying to influence vessels that are situated in the skin layers. The aim of the therapist is to restore equilibrium in the tissues. If the body is not in this state of equilibrium, and there is too much fluid in the tissues, they become soft and 'boggy' to the touch. If excess fluid is present it can interfere with cell nutrition – oxygen and nutrients will take longer to pass through the tissues and get from the bloodstream to the cells through the interstitial fluid. This will also mean that waste products from cell metabolism will take longer to move from cells to the transport system, which will remove them from the body. If the lymphatic system is functioning well, we feel well. There are many reasons for the Lymphatic system to be sluggish and not functioning well, leaving fluid static in the tissues. Pollution, toxins, poor nutrition, mucous formation, overload from previous viral or bacterial infections etc – these are all things that can give rise to cellular stagnation.

Myofascial Release
Provider(s): Alex Hunsche, Travis King
Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. This therapy aims to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles. Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body, including muscle. Fascia supports and protects these structures. Osteopathic theory proposes that this soft tissue can become restricted due to psychogenic disease, overuse, trauma, infectious agents, or inactivity, often resulting in pain, muscle tension, and corresponding diminished blood flow. Although fascia and its corresponding muscle are the main targets of myofascial release, other tissue may be addressed as well, including other connective tissue.

Neuromuscular Therapy American Version™
Provider(s): Michelle Kingston
Neuromuscular Therapy--American Version™ (NMT) has been developed and taught by Judith Delany, LMT since 1984. It is a thorough program of recovery from acute and chronic pain that uses specific protocols of massage therapy, stretching, and home care for treating areas of muscle pain, spasms, and tension. This scientific aproach to muscular pain relief will help to bring balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. NMT enhances the function of joints, muscles and biomechanics (movement) and it releases endorphins--the body's own natural pain killers. It can be part of a comprehensive program, complementing all other health care modalities. *NMT examines six physiological factors that may create or intensify pain patterns.

Michelle received certification (2011) and Laura (2016) in NeuroMuscular Therapy--American Version™ (NMT) through The Body Therapy Center and School of Massage in Swansea, IL (in collaboration with Southwestern Illinois College) and was trained by certified instructor Holly Pinto, LMT, NCTMB. Other staff members have obtained training in at least 1 neuromuscular therapy course. See individual bios for more information.

"NMT is one of my favorite and most useful techniques I have learned! I integrate NMT protocols in nearly all massages to help clients with specific complaints of muscle pain and tension." Michelle

*NMT examines:
  • Ischemia (inadequate blood supply to an area)
  • Trigger Points (a sensitive area of the body, that when stimulated causes pain in the area or has an effect in another area)
  • Nerve Entrapment/Compression
  • Postural Distortions
  • Nutrition
  • Emotional Wellbeing

Prenatal (Pregnancy) Massage
Prenatal or pregnancy massage is specifically tailored for a pregnant woman's needs. Extra pillows and cushions are used for comfort and proper positioning. Pregnancy massage has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the extremities, and relieve muscle and joint aches and pains. The massage can be comforting for mom and baby. One option for prenatal massage that may be offered is with the bodyCushion™ which is a cushioning system that can allow a pregnant woman (or anyone with a large midsection or breasts) to lay with her head in a face cradle and belly and breasts positioned in the cut-out portion of the bodyCushion™. The other option for prental massage is in the traditional side-lying position in which body and wedge pillows can be used for support. Your therapist may decide what is best depending on how many weeks along and the therapists' training. We prefer to see you after 13 weeks. If you have any special concerns, a doctor's note may be required. Please check with your therapist when booking if you are unsure.
Salt or Sugar Scrub
Dead sea salts are a used as wonderful scrub to increase circulation, move the lymphatic system, exfoliate the skin, and to ease ischemic muscles. They also have anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. The salts can be used together with carrier oil and aromatherapy oils. Hot, moist towels are used to remove the salt while you on are the warm massage table. After the salt is removed you will receive a massage with the oil or shea body butter of your choice. Your skin will feel amazingly soft, and smooth and will have a very appealing natural glow! Sugar scrub and cream based scrub have many of the same benefits and are available for those that prefer something more gentle. Dead sea salt and sugar scrubs are also perfect to have before a mud masque.

Not for use on the face, on cuts, abrasions, or areas of the body that were just shaved within the last 8 hours. (A less abrasive exfoliant can be substituted for areas that were recently shaved).

Provider(s): Michelle Kingston
One of Michelle's favorite healing modalities, reflexology, is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all of the glands, organs, and parts of the body. Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflex areas. It is used to relax tension, improve blood supply, promote the unblocking of nerve impulses, and to help nature achieve homeostasis. Reflexology is also refered to as "zone therapy" and its origin dates back to ancient Egypt as evidenced by inscriptions found in a physician's tomb (mastaba). It may also be related to Oriental Pressure Therapy or simply "Chinese reflexology" which also includes pressing on reflexes in the ears.

Michelle first learned reflexology at Ivy Tech State College of Indiana in 2004 as an elective. She has also completed phases l and ll of training in The Ingham Method® of reflexology through the International Institute of Reflexology® (IIR) with certified instructors David Covalt and Ted Stansbury and the president of IIR, Dwight Byers. Michelle combines this method of thumb and finger "walking" pressure along with aromatherapy massage of the feet and/or hands for all reflexology treatments and also integrates these treatments with most massage therapy sessions.

Sports Massage
Sports massage is suited for individuals involved in regular physical activity or those beginning a work out regimen. The massage can be modified for pre or post events. I can integrate various techniques into a sports massage such as compressions, deep tissue, stretching, shaking/vibrations, NeuroMuscular Therapy™, Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy® and Swedish style massage and focus attention on the areas of the body that are aggravated by specific sports or weight lifting/training.
Swedish Massage
Swedish massage (or classic massage) is a massage in which the therapist uses effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (squeezing or kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), shaking/vibration, and cross-fiber friction to relieve tension, improve circulation, and promote relaxation of the body and mind.
Trigger Point Therapy
Provider(s): Dawn Ervin
Trigger points refer to patterns of sensation such as sharp pain, dull ache, tingling, pins and needles, or hot or cold. They can create symptoms such as nausea, ear ache, equilibrium disturbance, or blurred vision. These small, hyperirritable sites in the muscle tissue sometimes refer pain to other locations attributing to headaches or sciatica. Trigger points usually occur up and down your body along the length of the muscle. They are most common in the axial muscles (muscles that control the movement of the body from side to side), especially those used to maintain posture, but can be found throughout the body.

Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

Elizabeth Adams provides trigger point massage therapy. She studied trigger point therapy with Amber Davies in Lexington, KY.

Benefits of Trigger Point Therapy
  • increased circulation and nutrition to muscles
  • assists in moving lymphatic fluid and lactic acid
  • realign deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue
  • relieve chronically tense and contracted areas of the body
  • relieve muscle tension or injury
  • breakdown adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments
  • reduced soft tissue inflammation
  • increase range of motion
  • improved posture
Contraindications for Trigger Point Therapy
  • severe high blood pressure (not medically controlled)
  • extreme dialated vericose veins
  • skin conditions; shingles/herpes, extreme dermatitis such as eczema, acne, psoriasis
  • open wounds, sores, bruises or rashes
  • peripheral vascular disease
  • pregnancy

Emotional Polarity Therapy (EPT)
Provider(s): Torie Sue Jacobson
For questions regarding EPT and to schedule, please contact Tori Sue Jacobson or see her on our team page to book through her website: (937) 750-4644

How Does EPT Work? EPTworks™ reveals what the mind conceals. Your physical body is influenced by your mental thoughts, words, emotions, and experiences which are kept as information at a cellular level. The Bible says, "As a man thinks, so is he."

To deal with stressful issues surrounding us in our daily lives, our bodies tend to store these emotions in our organs & muscles, leading to different types of unhealthy responses. This highly effective emotional health technology was designed to eliminate both physical and emotional issues, by transforming the human biofield and removing the negative emotional channels and the neuropeptides' channels that precipitate the problem.

Simply stated it helps people let go of grudges, resentment, anger, chronic pain, past hurts, traumas, addictions, anxiety, depression, etc. where there is an emotional component. EPTworks™ brings healing at the deepest level allowing forgiveness to flow easily and set you free.

Why Forgiveness? "The act of forgiveness can result in less anxiety and depression, better health outcomes, increased coping with stress and increase closeness to God and others." - Christiana Puchalski, M.D., Yale Journal of Humanities in Medicine

The heart of EPTworks™ is forgiveness...which unlocks the doors for healing in and through us.

Provider(s): Katie Fults
Microdermabrasion is a simple and effective form of exfoliation. It is considered a mechanical or physical exfoliation using Diamonds or crystals to remove the outer layer of dead or damaged skin cells revealing a more youthful skin. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment designed to improve the overall texture, tone and clarity of the skin while restoring the skin’s elasticity. This service is an add-on to any customized or relaxing facial.

How does it work?

This type of exfoliation is performed by gently exfoliating the skin with a diamond tip wand designed to remove the outer most layers of the epidermis(stratum corneum) followed with a vacuum suction action that removes the excess exfoliated skin. While the diamonds are performing the exfoliation, the vacuum suction action taking place is equally important because it is stimulating the lower layers of the skin combining skin exfoliation with regenerating suction, this unique system stimulates subdermal activities that "renew" the anti-aging mechanisms of the skin that slow with age. Microdermabrasion is recommended in a series, the results are cumulative and improve with each treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

Microdemabrasion is a progressive treatment, not aggressive. Although one microdermabrasion will yield a fresher, smoother looking skin, generally results are realized after the forth, fifth or sixth treatment. Average treatment protocol is 4-12 treatments. How many treatments might be necessary will depend on the condition of the skin and the needs of the client. Initially treatments can be performed every 7-10 days or 10-14 days apart. Once the series of treatments is completed it is recommended that monthly maintenance continue in order to maintain the desired result.

What type of skin can benefit from it?

All skin types and skin colors can benefit from microdermabrasion treatments. Aging, congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull and sun damaged skin will be rejuvenated and refreshed. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones and texture will be improved. Microdermabrasion will reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, chicken pox scars, brown/age spots, fine-lined wrinkles (rhytides), hyperkeratosis (overgrowth of the hornylayer), large pores, and other skin imperfections. 5 {features} no down time non-invasive immediate results suitable for most skin types/skin colors minimal risk/side effects {benefits} smooth out the surface of the skin stimulates collagen and elastin aids in producing more normal cell production stimulates lymph and blood cells move more evenly toward the epidermis, shed more evenly {areas treated} face, neck and decollete shoulders and back hands elbows and knees {treatable skin conditions} dehydrated/dull skin fine lines/aging skin acne/acne scarring photo-aged skin/hyperpigmentation PIH - post inflammatory hyperpigmentation6 {client consultation} very thorough profile and history.

Full Process

Lash Enhancement
Provider(s): Paula Tubbs
Applied on either a man or a woman. It is a series of single implants between the lashes. A lash enhancement is subtle, using a complimentary color to the eyelashes. It is applied to every second or third lash, and is implanted directly into the lash line to create a thicker lash line.

If your technician uses a color that is too dark, your final result will appear as small “connect-the-dots’ in the lash line. Using complimentary colors enhances the lash line and is a great procedure for men or for women. Men and women have this procedure performed to achieve the look of fullness and thickness of sparse lashes. Having eyeliner or lash enhancement will save you time and money while looking good 24/7.

Lash Enhancement

Permanent Lip Pigmentation
Provider(s): Paula Tubbs
For any of the eight conditions listed below, we can make the appropriate corrections using Permanent Cosmetic Techniques.

Lip Pigmentation

8 Conditions for Lip Treatment
  • If your lips have uneven tones, hyper-pigmentation or hypo-pigmentation--a blend of color may be used to balance your natural lip color
  • If your lips are too small--the lip line can be exaggerated slightly
  • If your lips are too large--pigment can be implanted inside the natural lip line
  • If your lips are flat-- a lighter shade of pigment may be used in the Cupid’s bow
  • To restore your natural lipline--an outline is given to your lips to create a symmetrical lip line
  • If your lips are droopy--the bottom lip line is drawn up slightly and out at the corners to give your lips a lift
  • Definition to the Cupid's Bow may be given--your colors can range from the softest pink- to coral- to a soft red
Permanent Eyeliner
Provider(s): Paula Tubbs
Eyeliner application is accomplished by inserting a series of colored implants into the lash line. Humans have more than 200 eyelashes in each of their eye lids and they are shed every 3-5 months. We have at least 2-4 rows of eyelashes on our eyelids and eyeliner is usually applied in-between these rows of lashes.
