Soaking for 15 minutes in hot water, at 100-105° F, relaxes the muscles, drawing out lactic acid. This loosens tight areas, deep in muscles and connective tissue surrounding joints. It reduces inflammation of joints, reduces blood pressure and increases oxygen flow to painful areas.
Body scrubs are a great way to exfoliate, nourish, and hydrate your skin. They not only remove dirt and dead skin cells to reveal a younger, fresher layer but also boost the blood circulation in the body and help drain the lymph nodes. This leaves the skin supple, vibrant, and nourished.
A hot oil treatment is a type of body massage therapy for relaxation and healing purposes. For the body, the hot oil is used to loosen and release the internal impurities, which are then flushed out and eliminated through the urinary and digestive tract. For this reason it is important to drink plenty of water after a treatment.
