. is a family owned and operated health & wellness center, that has been serving the community of Tulsa for over a decade.The goal of our business is to preserve the health and the beauty of the body and treat its pain and discomfort when it happens, by using various bodywork techniques and training. Our concept can be applied and addressed to everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, men or women, individuals that have health issues or not, and it aims in 4 directions:
1 ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE, including medical massage, helpful in the process of recovering the injured muscles and skeletal imbalances, stimulate circulation and immune system, without the use of medication.
How does it work?
The concept is based on the fact that when the body is physically and mentally overworked, acidic levels of products can accumulate, causing soreness, stiffness and even muscle spasms. Tense muscle may compress blood vessels and stretch nerves, restricting blood flow and cause pain. Massage in general improves blood and lymph circulation and brings fresh oxygen and other nutrients to the affected tissue, thus enhancing recovery. As the affected area is massaged, the muscle gradually release their strangle hold on the irritated nerves, and the pain ease. In addition, massage has been shown to increase the body' s production of pain-killing endorphins and the mood-altering hormone serotonin. It can also decrease the release of the stress hormone cortisol. For this reason, massage is often prescribed as an adjunctive therapy for people whose immune system are compromised by stress.
2 HEALTH & FITNESS , including diet and exercise, a comprehensive weight loss program, designed to keep your mind and your body healthy and productive.
Why does it work?
It does not matter how you call your diet. At the end of the day it is all about the nutrients we consumed. Inside the body, the weight is gained or lost in the same way. You can lose or gain muscle mass by manipulating the glycogen level, or you can lose or gain fat mass by losing or adding glycerol and fatty acids. The difference is how you coordinate the diet & exercise program in order to achieve your goals. Our weight loss program comes with concrete measurements of your body fat and requires weekly visits. It is based on the concept that most people consume to much carbohydrates and the body has to store them somewhere. It does it with the help of insulin, by filling up the glycogen storage in the liver and muscles which is okay ,or by packing them in the triglycerides in the form of glycerol and fatty acids, which is not okay. So by manipulating the amount of carbohydrates in your diet (lower them or adding them) and the combination with aerobic or anaerobic exercise could be the success.
3 SPA & WELLNESS, including hand and foot massage, waxing, manicures, pedicures and reflexology, a rejuvenating hand and foot care for man and women.
What can you expect?
One way to relieve the discomfort that your feet and hands have to endure during everyday stress is through reflexology and deep tissue massage. In this method the therapist uses the fingers to stimulate points on the foot or hands that corresponds to a map of the body. This reflex point stimulation is believed to improve the health of the head , liver, joints, back , or other spots that are mapped on the foot or hand. Adding a manicure and a pedicure to your therapy will only make your royal treatment better.
