4. Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine that has been recorded for centuries in Ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. The method breaks up stagnation, congestion and obstruction in our body’s regular flow. During the treatment, specialized glass cups are placed on the skin in targeted areas, and heat is used to create suction between the cup and the skin. Believed to affect tissues up to four inches below the skin, it is one of the most effective deep-tissue therapies available.

8. 1-Hour Hot Towel Massage


During this hot towel massage, your massage will move through the various sections of the body in a typical sequence, however the difference is that for each section, the body will first be introduced to the therapeutic touch through the placement of a hot steamed towel on each section. Once the muscles in a section are warmed, the towels will be removed for the massage. Moist heat makes the muscles more pliable, increases circulation, and promotes tissue softening, thereby putting your body in a fully relaxed state ready for deeper work.

9. Whole Body Cryotherapy Treatment


Get a natural high by standing in a whole body chamber pumped with cryogenically cooled air. This means the temperature will drop between negative 230 to 250 degrees fahrenheit, and your body will react by pumping blood to your heart and other vital organs. Once the temperature is normal and the blood circulates fully in the rest of your body again, it can help improve your immune system and reduce inflammation.
