Many of us never stop to think about our health until something goes wrong. But  developing and maintaining healthy habits – even for as little as an hour a week – can go a long way toward cultivating a wellness lifestyle meant to keep your body working. 

Wellness is more than simply feeling good; it’s living a life of good mental, spiritual and physical health. It’s important to maintain a long-term wellness plan that includes massage, skin care and body stretch.

The pursuit of wellness isn’t new. The idea stretches back to ancient Chinese, Greek, and Roman cultures, who all emphasized holistic approaches to achieving health, well-being and harmony within one’s life.

Ongoing wellness supports the adage: If we listen to our bodies when they whisper, we won’t have to hear them scream.


Customized massage can lower heart rate, reduce stress, improve posture, increase circulation and provide relaxation. A massage tailored to help address specific wellness needs can enhance personal wellness.

Skin care

Regular skin care promotes improved skin health. Healthy skin facials help you maintain that healthy glow, while advanced skin care services can help diminish fine lines, wrinkles and skin conditions. 

Assisted stretch

Total body stretch can support mobility, flexibility and improve muscle function.  

Stress can take a toll on your body, and even though your body works hard to keep up, it needs help. Keeping your body running efficiently should be high on your to-do list and regular self-care is key to operating at peak efficiency. Keeping your body in optimal working condition with routine massage – along with skin care and stretch – requires a little discipline.  It’s about taking the time to take care of yourself, if only for an hour each month.
