Whole Body Vibration (WBV)20 minutes: $40
The most effective way of exercising is to make sure that every cell of the body is moving. La Casa has an exercise machine that accomplishes this. We call it Whole Body Vibration (WBV), and you merely stand on a platform that vibrates. It has been shown that ten minutes of whole body vibration exercising is worth over 1 hour of other forms of strenuous exercise. Because of the supreme effectiveness of this simple exercise, whole body vibration is now used by major medical, rehabilitation & therapeutic centers across the country.
This therapy is ideal for weight loss, building bone density, as well as for accruing all the usual benefits of exercise.

The Blue Light removes bacteria from deep underneath the surface layers of your skin. Leaves your face freshly purified, ready to receive the lotions and potions of your facial.
La Casa has a large Blue Light, which we have used, quite effectively, on many of our clients for the traditional use of it—to clear up acne. But we have found that it has many more uses.
Lymphatic Drainage with Compression Boots30 minutes: $40
Treat your hardworking legs to sheer pleasure. Slip on our compression wrap leg-sleeves for a 30-minute air-pressurized service that will help to relieve muscle pain and joint inflammation. Give all leg muscles a good workout while you are utterly relaxed. This is what they use in hospitals for bedridden patients to keep muscle tonality, blood flowing and lymphatic drainage. Oxygenates; increases circulation, aids in reducing cellulite; stimulates lymphatic drainage. A great way to begin another full-hour hands-on massage–with a pre-massage. Almost as good as a real massage.
BioMat20 minutes: $40
The Bio-Mat is a thermo-therapy device that combines two known factors in the maintenance and restoration of health:
Far Infrared and Negative Ions.
Far-Infrared Rays (FIR):
Body temperature regulation is vital for health. When the body temperature drops by only 1˚, more than 3000 essential enzymes cannot perform their function. Immunity is lowered. Cancer cells and other pathogens thrive in low body temperature environments. Through applying FIR waves to the body, the BioMat raises the body’s core temperature, stimulating an immune response and creating a more inhospitable environment to all pathogens.
When the body is deficient in negative ions, cell channels are closed and cellular communication ceases. Nutrients can’t be absorbed and waste can’t be eliminated. Through generating an abundance of negative ions, the BioMat facilitates cellular metabolism, enhances vitality and distributes nutrients throughout the body.
To learn more about the health benefits of FIR, check out this article by Helen Nichols: 16 Science-Backed Health Benefits of Far-Infrared Rays.
CryoTherapy15 minutes: $40
A cold air application that can be applied to any parts of the body that are asking for better health or anti-aging effects. Exposure to cold air stimulates skin sensors, activating a
Central Nervous System response. Endorphins, the body’s natural pain inhibitors and mood elevators, are then released. Increased circulation decreases inflammation, clears out toxins and metabolic waste, and brings in a host of fresh new supply of oxygen and nutrient enriched blood, stimulating cellular regeneration.
FireWave Infrared Light Therapy20 minutes: $40
This anti inflammatoryRed light therapy is a controversial therapeutic technique that uses red-low level wavelengths of light to treat various skin issues.
We use the Magnetoacoustic Magofon device for this facial. It produces a low-frequency alternate magnetic field that has the following benefits:
- Increases circulation
- Calms the nervous system
- Increases capillary bloodstream and capillary tonus
- Activates idle capillary vessels
- Improves periodontal disease, gingivitis and TMJ dysfunction
Because of its many beneficial effects, while you are receiving the facial, you are also improving many other functions of your body, including increasing cerebral blood circulation, balancing the endocrine system, and reducing hypertension.
Alternately called either the fish machine, or the snake machine because it moves your body in a slinking, fluid side-to-side manner. It is therapeutic massage, an aerobic exerciser and helps
temporarily relieve minor muscle aches, pain, and tension caused by fatigue or over exertion. Locally increases blood circulation and relaxes muscles
Provides a unique feeling known as the “Chi Rush”!
Light Wave20 minutes: $40
A panel using near and far infrared and negative ions which is nature’s energizer, delivering a molecular level massage. This accelerates and deepens all healing and cleansing processes. It balances pH by decreasing acidity and is considered the “Master Power Switch” which activates the body’s entire cellular communication system, making all body functions work better! Negative ions alleviate allergies, migraines and sinus problems.
- oxygenates, tones, and strengthens the body
- increases feelings of energy, aliveness and well being
- stimulates the lymphatic system and exercises and balances the spine
Vitamin D/ Tanning
This unit is the only unit recommended by Dr. Mercola. He advises against using oral vitamin D, and instead, to use this more natural way of exposing your whole body to the full spectrum of sunlight. Evidence continues to accrue showing that both the incidence and progression of cancers, especially colon, breast and prostate cancers, are beneficially affected by having vitamin D serum levels in the 40-60 ng/ml range. This amount is recommended by over 42 vitamin D researchers, and it is well above the 20 ng/ml officially recommended by the Institute of Medicine. It is estimated that as much as 75-80% of the world’s population is below the 40 ng/ml range.
- red light puts collagen in skin surface, filling in wrinkles, helping to reverse the appearance of aging
- white light strengthens the walls of blood vessels in skin, improving oxygenation and hydration
- all the lights together give a surfeit of vitamin D
Energy Blanket20 minutes: $40
La Casa’s Energy Blanket, also known as the OLM Healing Blanket, is widely used in Russia as a treatment as well as preventative for many diseases. The key to the blanket is its construction, made with shield layers. The layers accumulate and reflect back the body’s own electromagnetic radiation in the infrared and extremely high frequency ranges, creating a local “eco-environment” between the body and the healing blanket self-radiations. These then influence biologically active points throughout the whole body. As well, the blanket completely forms a shield from surrounding negative artificially created electromagnetic and electrostatic fields. Research has shown the blanket:
- rebalances hormones
- restores adaptive capacities of the body
- increases vascular permeability
- activates biochemical and oxidative processes
- causes anti-inflammatory action
- activates immunological processes
- regulate cell homeostasis
- reduce the toxic effects of artificial electromagnetic radiation and electrostatic fields
Wave Body Balance20 minutes: $40
The Wave is an efficient exercise device that in spite of its simplicity (in fact, its simplicity IS its genius) accomplishes more than any other exercise device we have come across. The anchored side of the WAVE is the perfect height to tighten and tone your hips, thighs and butt. Plus, you can use this “step” side of the wave for cardio sequences that maximize calorie burning with minimum impact.
But, the rocking side of the Wave is when it gets really interesting. When using the Wave as a rocker, core muscles, abs, lower back and hips are constantly and simultaneously engaged. Upper and lower body are sculpted. Also, as a balancing bar, brain hemispheres are synchronized.
Gravity Inversion20 minutes: $40
The Gravity Inversion utilizes the bodyslant board which can redirect gravity’s force to your benefit in a comfortable and safe way. It may be used for simple relaxation or as an exercise aid to increase muscular resistance. Slanting offers a natural method of restoring mechanical alignment and balance.
Reversing gravity’s pull on your body with the aid of the bodyslant slant board not only gives your outward appearance a lift–it does wonderful things for your internal health as well. Here are just a few of the physiological benefits you receive when you assume the head-lower position:
- Blood is directed to the head by its own weight instead of having to be pumped upward by the heart
- Scalp and facial skin receive a revitalizing blood bath
- Sinus cavities (with openings on the upper side) are allowed to drain properly.
- Natural balance is restored to the body
- Abdominal organs are “lifted” back into proper position.
- Feet and legs are freed from their customary burden of supporting body weight.
- Nervous fatigue dissolves into a pleasant feeling of relaxation.
- Postural alignment is improves; the chest area expands to allow room for the heart and lungs to work freely.
- Spinal column is supported, back muscles relaxed, and the lumbar curve flattened (in certain positions).
- Blood flows more freely to the muscles of the chin, throat and cheeks, helping to maintain their firmness.
