A Day of Detox comprised of three therapies designed to do just that “detox”. We begin with your first treatment by bringing you into our sensory deprivation chamber for your Floatation session the ultimate in relaxation. No parallel in terms of detoxification. Float into infinity in a luxurious flotation chamber.
• The rejuvenating effect on the brain is shown to be equivalent to five hours of sleep.
• The detoxifying effect on the body is equivalent to a three-day fast.
You float peacefully atop water that is saturated with mineralized salts, thus experiencing both buoyancy and weightlessness. Because there is no sensory stimulation in the chamber, you enter a state that is both extraordinarily quiet and intensely conscious.
Because the water is heated to the precise degree of skin temperature, there are no nerve transmissions traveling from the skin to the brain. As a result, the relaxation induced is utterly profound.
The concentration of salt to water in La Casa’s float room enables this therapy to deliver a wealth of positive effects to the body: it delivers, in effect, an ocean of energy. Bio-energetic deficits are re-balanced and weak links become strengthened, reactivating the body’s electric current. The organs’ functions start to resonate with the natural frequency patterns of the salt water. This activates the natural regulatory mechanism of the body and its self-healing powers.
Specific research shows the physiological effects from floating to be utterly profound.
• drop in blood pressure
• slowing of pulse rate
• allows the blood to circulate more freely throughout the body
• an increase in alpha and theta waves in the brain
• synchronous and symmetrical rhythms are achieved throughout the cortex
• a decrease in levels of the hormones associated with stress, the “fight or flight” hormones of epinephrine, nor-epinephrine, ACTH and cortisol
• pH levels and electrolytes are balanced; reduction of acidity
• heavy metals detoxification
• improvement of skin elasticity
• re-mineralization of skin
In contrast to a normal bath, in which moisture is extracted from the skin, the salt bath allows salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin and binds the water. This maintains the natural, protective film of the skin and the skin does not dry out. In fact, skin elasticity is improved.
Clients who float report a sense of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being during and for some time after the float. And our state-of-the-art UV light filtration and ozonation system assures you a sterile, bacteria-free environment.
Ladies: Your hair will get wet. It is, after all, a water treatment.
Weight Limit: 220 lbs.
Please Note: There is only one (1) flotation chamber available.
BEFORE YOUR FLOAT:
– Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time
– If you are late, your float session may need to be cut short to ensure the following appointment can start on time. Allow yourself plenty of time to get to our center – it’s much harder to relax into the tank if you’ve been rushing
– It’s best to avoid shaving the day of your float (or at least 12 hours before your appointment), as any minor cuts will sting (we provide petroleum jelly to cover any small cuts or abrasions)
– Avoid wearing contact lenses as water may drip into your eyes causing irritation and stinging
– If pregnant, please let us know at time of booking; it is safe to float after the 1st trimester (week 1-12)
– Do not have a large meal before our session; it may make it hard for you to relax
– We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone we may suspect are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
AFTER YOUR FLOAT:
– Please be mindful of the time, do not take too long to shower after your float
– Consider that we may have another client waiting and we need to allow sufficient time to get the room ready for the next client
– Leave all towels in float room; we will pick it all up
Next you enter our Massage room where you can choose between several massages offered here at La Casa. In our massages, we treat the skin as though it is a living, breathing organ that expands and contracts, senses and responds, knows as well as remembers, ceaselessly dying as well as becoming. As a result, we have several full service massage packages designed to help stimulate relaxation and healing in your body.
At La Casa, our belief is that because the skin and the brain develop from the same embryonic tissue, we should think of the skin as an external brain, one that is exquisitely sensitive to stimulation. When we stimulate the skin through touch, we stimulate brain development. In the infant, touch serves the same function as a mother bear’s licking of her cub; it enhances immune function; it enlivens the bodily systems into action. Touch increases antibody production as well as the production of the growth hormone, the master hormone that regulates all endocrine functions of the body.
Our signature massage eases tension, aches & pains with techniques customized to your body’s specific needs. Uses effleurage, kneading, friction & vibration strokes. Calms nervous system. Feel relaxed & renewed.
Combine touch with alluring scents. A blended synergy of warmed citrus oils – orange, mandarin, & grapefruit – are released over the body & accompanied by hot towels infused with essential oils to relieve tired & achy muscles. Citrus oil aids in collagen & elastin production for smoother skin.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Intense working of tension spots in muscles and tissue. Various massage techniques are used including deep tissue. Recharges your body & brings clarity to your mind.
This is a beyond-a-massage massage. It has all the traditional benefits of massage plus others that you may not have even heard of. You lay comfortably atop a magnetized pad – 5 gauss of magnets.
The human body is electro-magnetic by design; it is composed largely of charged particles such as atoms, electrons, protons, and ions. Increasing the geomagnetic field of the body acts as a catalyst to improve chemical reactions occurring in the body. This, then, improves all body functions, including oxygen carrying capacity.
The pictures tell the story:
Microscopic Picture of Blood Cells Before Lying on the Magnetic Pad
Note the clumping of red blood cells, typical of stress, health problems or fatigue. Fatigue is normally experienced by everyone at the end of the day and can be explained simplistically as “loss of charge” on body cells.
Microscopic Picture of Blood Cells After 20 Minutes on Magnetic Pad
With increased negative magnetic field supplementation, chemical reactions are enhanced, building up the charge on cell walls. The cells will then repel each other, eliminating the clumping. With more surface area available, the oxygen-carrying capacity of the cells is greatly increased. This occurred in the blood of individuals with only a 20 minute session on the Magnetic Pad. (La Casa’s magnetic massage lasts an hour: the effects are even greater.)
Over the last 165 years, scientists have measured the Earth’s magnetic field and recorded a decline of its strength. Today the magnetic field of the Earth is measured at 0.5 gauss, yet it is estimated that the field of the Earth 4,000 years ago was 2.5 gauss. This represents a decrease of 80%.
Dr. Kyoichi Nakagawa is considered the founder of modern magnetic research in relation to health. He studied the effects of this loss of earth’s magnetism on human health. He coined the term “Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome” (MFDS) indicating that Earth’s diminished magnetic field caused people to suffer symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, generalized aches and pains. His study further showed that supplementation with magnets brought symptomatic relief.
Our North American versions of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia seem to correlate very closely with Dr. Nakagawa’s MFDS and, these conditions have been shown to respond well to magnetism. The stories of people being helped by magnet therapy are countless.
Once you finished with your massage we have you go into an ultimate cleanse from within to out with our most feel good Raindrop Colonic. We use essential oils in the Raindrop Technique combining the colon cleansing with reflexology and massage techniques. Specific oils are applied to the body, bringing structural as well as electrical balance. This gentle treatment helps align the energy centers of the body, and allows release if they are blocked. Oils used are: Young Living products of Valor, Aroma-Siez, Ortho-ease, as well as oils of thyme, oregano, cypress, wintergreen, basil, peppermint, and marjoram. When this treatment is done in conjunction with colon therapy, the cleansing is more thorough. When the Essential Oil Colonic is combined with both floatation and La Casa’s unique Body Polish (said by the New York Times to “come close to magical realism, leaving you feeling otherworldly”), you have given your body an unsurpassed detoxification and healing.
