Tibetan Medicine Body Steam

A Tibetan body steam involves sitting with your body in a Tibetan wooden steam barrel, while you are surrounded by steam created by boiling Tibetan medicine. This herbal steam permeates your whole body and advances blood circulation, removes blood stasis, and cleanses the skin. This treatment is an excellent way to rid your body of toxins. As your blood vessels dilate, your blood circulation increases, which in turn allows more oxygen to get to your soft tissue injuries and sore muscles. That’s what makes this treatment so effective.

This energy stone sauna treatment is especially beneficial for those with joint and back pain. The heat from the stone is released when it touches your skin, healing your limbs and joints in the process. It’s one of the most popular detox treatments for the winter. This sauna treatment helps to ease muscle tension and promotes weight loss. When you sweat, you expend energy. Your metabolic rate increases during this process, so you burn calories at a higher rate.

Foot Scrub with Rose Foot Spa

We’ve previously discussed how to get better skin. During the winter, you’ll notice your skin may start to dry out and appear flaky or uneven. A great way to prevent this and maintain a nice even complexion is by getting a body scrub or foot scrub. Foot scrubs exfoliate the skin while nourishing the new skin underneath, leaving you soft and glowing. Your feet will be baby soft. Actually by shedding off the dead skin, you’re better able to moisturise and, in turn, keep dry skin at bay.

Vaginal Steaming

This treatment has surged in popularity recently. Vaginal steaming involves directing herb-infused steam into your vagina. It is primarily helpful in cleaning the vagina, uterus, and entire reproductive tract. However, advocates of vaginal steaming claim it also helps to relieve stress, infertility, headaches, fatigue, and digestive issues. The herbs used may include the following: mugwort, wormwood, chamomile, calendula, basil, and oregano. In traditional Chinese medicine, moxibustion is the process of burning mugwort on or over a problematic area of the body or pressure point. So, in a similar sense, this does the same thing for the vagina.
