Find Winter Relief At Rescue

so-cold-thermometer-photo
Don’t let this time of year hijack your health.  By getting massages during these colder days, you are increasing your circulation, heightening your immune system, and relieving your muscles from the tension of just being cold. Massage is a somatic (body) therapy but also a great antidote for helping with seasonal affective disorder.  A well-done massage can enhance a person’s outlook as well as lessen incidences of fatigue & anxiety.  Winter presents us all with a unique group of challenges both physically & mentally, as well as the blues.  When the thermometer drops, massage therapy will bring up your spirits & warm up your body.  Find relief this winter at Rescue Spa.  Spring will be here on March 2oth.

Till then… Be Well,

Spa Treatments for Busy Moms: Scrub & Rub at Rescue Spa

0S1A2567“On a chilly afternoon I headed to 16th and Walnut for a luxurious new experience, a full body scrub. I’ve enjoyed my share of facials and massages, but never enjoyed pampering like this! You know how good it feels to get a nice long back scratch? A scrub takes this feeling to a new level.

The massage therapist scrubbed me head to toe with refreshing scents of grapefruit. The room had an attached rainwater shower area – which I took full advantage of – and the towels were so soft… Overall this was an AMAZING experience because I decided to embrace the slowness. (A shower with no urgency is pretty unusual for this busy mom.) After drying off from my shower, my massage therapist returned for a light massage to moisturize. I was in heaven. My skin felt smooth and my mind relaxed. A perfect way to relax and get your body ready for beach and pool season just around the corner.” – Reviewed by Philadelphia Family Publisher Sarah Bond

PSA: This Is Not a Sex Toy

refa on shoppist
 
It’s a de-puffing, tightening, turkey-neck-fixing face roller — and it works.
 
Really. It’s a platinum-coated face and body roller, made in Japan, obsessed over in Korea and now carried in Philly. The premise: A solar panel on the handle converts light into a micro-current, one that emulates the natural low-level electrical frequency already in our bodies (which weakens as we age). Rolling the ReFa Carat over your face and body—backs of knees, cheekbones, forehead, jaw line, chest, any spot that sags, dulls or bloats—stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage and, well, just feels good. In short, it’s a literal recharge of the skin. The end result? You won’t feel a buzz or notice Botox levels of improvement, but your skin will look tighter, tauter, de-puffed, glow-y and downright refreshed. So, yes, it’ll raise eyebrows. But really, that’s the whole point.
