Relieving Stress with Reflexology

MyrnaBeardshearBy Myrna Beardshear, Director of Spa, Fitness & Health Services

Massage is often seen as just a reliever of physical discomfort, but in reality a relaxing massage can help calm the mind too. By using different massage techniques, massage therapists are able to loosen sore muscles, increase circulation and improve mental clarity.

Not able to get to the spa? Foot massage, or reflexology, is actually an ancient practice of manipulation and stimulation to restore health and balance to the entire body through reflex therapy applied to the feet. Reflexology diagram cards showing the pressure points on your feet are available everywhere and are easy to follow.

  • Take off your shoes.
  • Rub the brain, stomach and solar plexus reflexology points on your feet.
  • The brain, your body's mental stress center, is at the point of the base of the ball of the big toe.
  • Relieve anxiety by rubbing the stomach, located at the arch of the foot.
  • Considered to be the "nerve switchboard of the body," press the solar plexus, located at the center of the base of the ball of the foot, for 20 to 30 seconds on each foot.
  • Repeat.

Introducing Clarins at Sagestone Spa & Salon

traceywelsh

When I read the core beliefs of Clarins and this quote from founder Jacques Courtin-Clarins, “We do not promise miracles, we deliver results.” I saw Clarins as more than another product that we would be providing to our guests at Red Mountain. This quote spoke volumes of integrity and pride to me, especially from a family owned product with 60 years of history. Reading more of these Clarins core values — “we believe in the power of plants, we believe in the power of touch, we believe that inner beauty is as important as outer beauty” — it became clear to me that these mirrored the values of the family of therapists and aestheticians at Sagestone Spa & Salon. I could clearly see that Clarins would compliment the well developed skills of our Sagestone team.

Those skills have now been even more refined as we employ “The Clarins Touch,” a series of lymphatic massage techniques created by founder Jacques Courtin Clarins. Guests will find that tension slips away as “the Clarins Touch” method releases excess fluids and toxins. Visible puffiness is immediately and effectively reduced. With my first Clarins facial, I became a firm believer that it was this unique method of correctly applied touch, combined with great product, produced visible results. Our new facial menu offers treatments with highly customized protocols and formulas, combined with our aesthetician’s advice for your home skin regime, each designed for the unique skin issues we experience as we age.

The methods of “The Clarins Touch” are applied to more than facial treatments and we are fortunate and proud that Clarins has graciously trained our therapists to be the first in the U.S. to use these techniques with body therapies. Our team has learned over 80 complex hand movements and rhythmic strokes combined with the powerful Clarins formulas to produce renewing treatments. Our menu will include a series of customized body treatments, polishes and wraps to provide the results that you desire. Treatments for anti-aging, firming, shaping and hydrating your body with time tested botanical ingredients. We are honored to share our new knowledge and the benefits of Clarins with our Sagestone guests and hope you will give us your feedback on this addition to Red Mountain Resort.
