Infrared Light Therapy
Infrared light therapy warms the muscles penetrating deep into the body's tissues. In addition to being relaxing, it promotes healing, reduces pain and inflammation, improves circulation, accelerates muscle recovery, and even boost the immune system.
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot stones are placed on the body and used in gliding strokes. The heat in the stones penetrates deep to release long-held tension and discomfort, reducing chronic inflammation and relieving pain and discomfort.
