Sugaring - Natural Alternative to Hot Wax
Sugary Sweet Facts
The history is in the hieroglyphs…
Hair removal using sugar was pioneered by the ancient Egyptians and it one of the oldest forms of hair removal. It is said in some Egyptian hieroglyphs that the Pharaoh would have his servants use this form of hair removal on his body. Hair on the body in those days was considered, by the upper class to be unclean. During the reign of the Turkish Empire and the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt and Greece, the removal of body hair with sugar paste was considered an art.
The sugar paste is made from all natural ingredients, including real sugar, honey and lemon juice, which provides effective hair removal. It is gentle on even the most sensitive skin types and contains absolutely no chemicals, resins, bees wax, or by-products and has not been tested on animals.
Sugar Free Sanitation!
Sugar hair removal is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. Sugar paste is applied with a gloved hand, and a fresh ball of sugar paste is used for each client.
Sweet and Gentle:
Sugar will not stick to live skin cells so during hair removal only the dead skin cells are removed. Because of this fact, there is less risk of abrasions, bruising or tearing. Our sugar paste is lukewarm when it is applied, so there is absolutely no risk of burning the skin.
The sugar paste is water soluble and dissolves easily with water.
**Please be aware that any guest using RetinA, Accutane, Differin, or alpha hydroxyl acids on their skin as part of their daily skin care regime are not ideal candidates for sugaring as these products can thin the skin . . We’re always willing to work with you to find out what’s best for your skin, please contact us with any questions.
Techniques to Sugar:
During your treatment the sugar paste is applied against the natural direction of hair growth, and then removed in the direction of growth.
Hair growth need only be 1/8 inch long to be removed, about 7 – 10 days growth depending on the individual. Being a little fuzzy for almost 2 weeks can be frustrating, but well worth the wait for those who hate shaving and willing to add some sugar to their lives.

Customized Skin Care Rituals
Many factors contribute to the condition of our skin: Age, ethnicity, genetics, the environment, and how we have taken care of our skin are a common few. There are different skin conditions that require different courses of action, and so, every skin care treatment is highly customized to the needs of the individual.
First, define what it is you are looking to accomplish with your skin. Are you happy with your skin? What would you like to see change? Are you nurturing your skin at home? How? These are all questions I will be asking you, so ask yourself first.
Acneic/Sensitive/Restoring~60 minutes $110
This skin care treatment is geared towards a specific skin condition you would like to correct.
Active acne, environmentally damaged skin, pre and post facial surgeries, broken capillaries, eczema and psoriasis are a few conditions targeted here. Starting with a deep cleanse and exfoliation suited to your skin type, we can begin to address the specific problem you are encountering. Colloidal silver, activated charcoal, saffron complex, and wild cherry and yam mask are a few of the products hand selected for this facial. You will emerge relaxed, with a plan of action to maintain your healthy skin.
Plump up the Volume~60 minutes $110
Loss of volume is every woman’s complaint, so come on and get plumped.
Aging, genetics, diet, and stress can take its toll on our bodies, causing sagging, hollow skin. This skin care treatment is luxurious and effective the whole way through: Deep cleanse, resurfacing exfoliation, facial cupping massage, hydrating mask, and a heavy dose of our collagen builder penetrate your dermal layers helping to synthesize and maintain your own collagen and elastin. BRING IT BABY!
Ultrasonic Microdermabrasion~90 minutes $135
(Best in a series of 6)
A uniquely relaxing treatment that produces exquisite results. Using the power of ultrasound and our grime-fighter solution, the therapist controls the level of exfoliation through sonic frequency of the device generating vibrations to loosen dirt, oil, and clean cellular debris from deep inside the pores. Classified as a “wet peel”, while the skin is being “power washed”, the cells also enjoy deep hydration.
With this treatment you can expect: improved blood circulation, removal of impurities in the skin, firming, toning and increased elasticity of the facial tissue, creates localized heat and dilation of the capillaries helping to speed up nutrient absorption, lymphatic drainage, and oxygenation of tissues. Not everyone is a good candidate for traditional microdermabrasion, but most everyone can enjoy the benefits of this non- invasive treatment.
*Those with pacemakers are not good candidates for this treatment due to the emission of electrical current)
Therapeutic Bodywork - Relax & Restore
Whether you are looking to relax & restore your body and mind, or focus on something pain-specific, a treatment can be tailored to your needs.
By incorporating different modalities of massage such as: deep tissue, circulatory, shiatsu, lymphatic drainage, passive-joint or prenatal, your wish is our command. Hot towels and aromatherapy are used through-out all treatments aside from prenatal.
60 Minutes $95
75 Minutes $115
90 Minutes $135
120 Minutes $165
