Touch of Health: Discover the Unknown Benefits of Acupressure Massage

People who frequent spas in Folsom are already familiar with the common types of alternative therapies like acupuncture and certain massages. While each has its own benefits, there is a way that you can get the best of both worlds. An acupressure massage is a melodic combination of both centuries-old techniques that can offer long-term health benefits. Many people aren’t even aware of this type of massage and if you are one of them, you’re clearly missing out. Don’t worry though, it’s never too late to make an appointment with a massage therapist from an all-natural spa like The Healing Station. What is Acupressure Massage? Acupressure massage focuses on the stimulation of the acupressure points. Think of it as acupuncture minus the needles. The massage therapist puts pressure on specific points of the body through which energy flows. These specific areas are known as meridians of Qi, which according to ancient Chinese medicine are vital energy pathways.

Pregnancy Breakouts: Find Solutions at an Acne and Skin Care Clinic

Just when you thought you’d outgrown the acne that plagued you when you were a teen, it decides to make an appearance—one last hurrah during your pregnancy. You might have heard that pregnant women get that “glow” but unfortunately, not everyone is so lucky. Don’t just chalk up an acne breakout to the hormones and wait for it to run its course as that could have a negative effect on you, particularly your self-esteem, after you give birth. Consult an expert from an acne and skin care clinic like The Healing Station in Folsom, CA as early as possible. Don’t Wait Too Long Acne during pregnancy is essentially the same as any case of adult acne. The only difference is that pregnancy hormones could significantly increase the production of oil in the skin, which could mean more acne for you. According to the Academy of American Dermatology, waiting too long to seek treatment runs the risk of you developing dark spots and scars.
