Reflexology is a system of massage. It is used to relieve tension and to treat illness based on the theory that reflex points on the feet, hands, ears and head are linked to every part of the body. Dating back 3000 years this ancient Chinese technique was believed to stimulate these reflex points to enable the body to mobilize it's own healing mehcanisms through an unimpeded flow of energy. The gentle, nurturing yet firm pressure to energetic reflex points on your hands, feet and ankles, leave you very relaxed, followed by a revival of energy, similar to an all over body massage. A heavenly experience not to be missed!
Aromatherapy is the use of plants and their essential oils for therapeutic benefits. Essential oils offer powerful physical and emotional healing. They are the life force of the plant or fruit they are extracted from. Like blood to a human, essential oils provide nourishment to the plant or fruit they come from. For example, we all know that lemons are good for us. Part of the goodness from the lemon comes from the fruit, but there is also goodness in the peel or rind of the lemon, nature doesn't provide something for nothing, it all has a use, we just have to discover it. The rind of the lemon is where the oils are extracted for lemon essential oil. A 1/4 tsp. of lemon oil (about two drops) = the zest of 1 medium lemon. Essential oils are very concentrated, so one drop of lemon oil provides many benefits. Lemon essential oil is anti-bacterial, stimulates the immune system and protects and nourishes the liver. We use lemon essential oil in our pedicures, manicures and facials for it's anti-bacterial properties. Lemon essential oil is a wonderful degreaser, so we also use it in our products to clean the sanctuary. Peppermint is a favorite during our massages, to soothe muscles and provide sinus relief. Lime, mandarin and grapefruit are cleansing and detoxifying during body scrubs, wraps and lymph drainage treatments. We provide inhalers, lip balms, bath salts, oils, lotions, hand soap, custom blends and skin elixirs for acne, rosacea and wrinkles. See our Spa Boutique or ask Natasha during your next treatment at Epiphany. Andrea Butje, Clinical Aromatherapist and gifted teacher is the founder of The Aromahead Institute (www.aromahead.com) Sarasota, Florida, she tells us "consider the scent of a rose, roses are far more complicated than you might think. The essential oil of a rose has hundreds of different ingredients, or chemical components. Each of the components has been identified by chemists, and many have been studied for their therapeutic value by medical researchers". There are many essential oils that have been studied this way and all essential oils offer a perfect array of ingredients that nature has provided for us. There is no licensing in the United States for Aromatherapists. The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (www.NAHA.org) and the Alliance of International Aromatherapists (www.alliance-aromatherapists.org) provide certification to encourage the safe use of essential oils and it's education. Aromatherapy is in the heart of all treatments and products offered at Epiphany, because we passionately believe in the healing power of nature, it just makes sense that we should use them for their bounty of therapeutic benefits.
The massage experience for geriatric clients is very rewarding to be part of. Our clients are very receptive and so appreciative, and their body responds well. We have discovered that slow, gentle massage techniques to mobilize tender, stiff muscles and joints is very effective. Massage therapy also helps to reduce inflammation that causes pain around the joints.
Improved range of motion can help perform daily living activities, which can lead to increased independence and quality of life.Improved circulation of blood and lymph is the principal benefit of massage, so it is very effective for someone who sits or lays for long periods of time. The increase in circulation from massage therapy can speed recovery after an injury, and boost energy levels.
Massage therapy for geriatric clients also offers emotional support through a sense of belonging. This is important to many people in a nursing home or assisted living. Human touch has a significant impact on mental and emotional well being. We have experienced reduced anxiety and less agitation with many of our clients. We strongly recommend massage therapy for your family member or loved one in a nursing home or assisted living, it is such a wonderful gift to them. We utilize different techniques to perform these special massages, from a bed or a wheel chair, we do not need to use a massage table.

nt includes an extended version of our "Face Lift Massage", arm, neck, shoulder and head massage which also includes an aromatherapy foot massage, the Creme De La Creme of treatments! A deep and thorough cleansing with Clarisonic deep pore Cleansing System, lemon, lime & grapefruit, with aloe & jojoba polish, Our famous Prep Technique extractions and a warm mineral masque.
The Prep Technique is a unique process of performing extractions, that was developed by our founder Natasha Crow. Extractions are the removal of blackheads, white heads and other debris from the skin. Extractions are performed by estheticians during a facial, but are often left out due to lack of confidence by the esthetician. This is because of the minimal training required by esthetic teachers and estheticians. Time restrictions and the integrity of the esthetician are other factors that create a bad experience for a client, while damaging their skin. Extractions are performed incorrectly most of the time. We provide a method that requires extensive training in this particular area, which also requires skill and integrity. You will leave our sanctuary feeling good about the way your skin looks instead of the typical red, blotchy look that can last for weeks, scars your skin and gives you more breakouts.
Microderm Abrasion is an exfoliation method which utilizes a machine that blasts aluminum-oxide crystals onto the skin via a pen like wand, while using suction to stimulate blood flow to increase cell turnover for anti-aging benefits. It is known for reducing wrinkles and scars. Some companies have discontinued use of the aluminum-oxide crystal systems due to various reports by the US Government that aluminum-oxide crystal particles can enter the lungs through breathing, during microderm abrasion treatments, and this can be hazardous to your health. Ahh.. duh! Yeah!! What a shame it is that we have to wait for a report to tell us that breathing in aluminum-oxide crystals is not good for you! So they now now use a ragged edged metal wand with a diamond coating to offer strength and durability to the equipment. Great! Let's drag ragged edge metal wands across our skin, and think that is luxurious because it is covered in diamonds, a diamond coating that is. Microderm abrasion started it's offerings in Dr's offices, shameful! Then made it's way into the hands of estheticians, since there is no law or certification to use microderm equipment and at approximately $75 - $100 for a 15-30 minute treatment, that has you returning weekly, it's a nice money maker for all. If your really lucky you may be offered what they call a "flash peel" which is a pouring of acid onto your freshly grated skin, lovely! The price YOU really pay is for the destruction of your precious skin. Results will be seen a few weeks after treatment, due to exfoliation and renewal of the epidermis. However, this is an aggressive exfoliation and you will pay for it negatively. Inflamed, red and irritated skin that remains a long time if not forever, is what your end result will be.
Our Sanitas & Devita Paramedical Skin Care Treatments focus on skin health. Based on the simple, scientific formula:Skin Stimulation + Topical Nourishment = Healthy Skin, and Healthy skin = Beautiful skin.Using high concentrations of active, biogenic ingredients found naturally in the skin, Sanítas provides more of what your skin needs to help reverse the effects of aging. Tissue is nourished and stimulated at the cellular level, resulting in a more resilient, visibly healthy and younger-looking complexion.
Our goal is to create healthy skin by enabling cellular processes at the deepest tissue levels. The skin grows and regenerates through proper nutrition and supplementation. That’s why Sanítas products create healthy skin by utilizing both topical and internal skincare strategies.
The concept of stimulation, or exercise, and nourishment is this: The skin is a dynamic, moving organ like any other organ in the body. Just as you would exercise your body by lifting weights at the gym, Sanítas products use alpha and beta hydroxy acids to "exercise" or stimulate the skin. The best time to take nutritional supplements is immediately after exercising; similarly, Sanítas products "feed" or nourish the skin with topical vitamins and natural moisture factors immediately after exercising it with Sanitas more active products
Active vs. Resting
Just as you shouldn't exercise the same muscle every day, it is the Sanitas philosophy that you shouldn't exercise or stimulate your skin every day. Skin, like a muscle, needs rest from stimulation to enter the refractory phase and grow. Because of this we have created a system that employs a series of active vs. resting products.
Proper nail & cuticle grooming help prevent nails from splitting, cracking and peeling, allowing nails to stay healthier and grow longer
Color has the power to soothe or seduce, nurture or ignite
