This Simple Enhancement Will Maximize Your Massage

Our unique Tension Release Treatment is one of our best discoveries.

The Tension Release Treatment is a session enhancement using a blend of massage oil and AromaTouch. We offer it as either a spot or a full body treatment. Add it to your session when your massage online. 

The spot treatment focuses on specific areas that need improvement, whereas the full body treatment has the blend applied on the body throughout the entire session. The blend is made up of several different essential oils. The mixture consists of:

Peppermint essential oils add a crisp and sharp fragrance while feeling cool and soothing on the skin.

  • Lavender–the most versatile of all essential oils. With its floral fragrance, Lavender helps you relax and unwind.
  • Basil–creates a sense of balance and calms your mind.
  • Cypress–adds an evergreen aroma and restores feelings of security and stability. Cypress is also beneficial for oily or troubled skin.
  • Marjoram–produces a warming effect on both mind and body.
  • Peppermint–another basic essential oil used to relieve head pressure
  • Grapefruit–good for removing acne and toxins from the body.
  • Lemon grass–supports overall well-being.

This blend of essential oils generates a sweet, woodsy, herbal scent. You’ll feel as though you dove deep into the heart of a springy evergreen forest.

Who needs it?
The purpose of tension release treatment is found in the name of the enhancement itself. It provides a more deep and meaningful massage without the practitioners diving in with forearms and elbows. If you’re coming in to recover from an intense day at work, our tension release treatment will leave you feeling even more satisfied compared to a massage alone.

Tension Release Treatment is also great for those who come in to simply relax. The enhancement’s stress relieving effect calms the mind. Since our mind controls our body, you’ll find yourself in a deep peace. After all, our goal here at GLM is to provide the best experience for our clients.

The practitioner behind the formulation of our Tension Release Treatment is Kylee Davis, the co-owner of the Good Life Massage. Kylee knew that the body and mind are connected: if one was feeling beat, so would the other. Most people associate relaxation with doing nothing. Not so. Real relaxation takes effort. Your mind is constantly on the go. This makes the enhancement perfect for those who run on a “one speed-fast” mind.

When asked why she would recommend clients adding on a Tension Release Treatment to their session she replied, “I am able to get through their superficial issues faster and access deeper tissue easier.”

Tension release is one of those little extras that make your massage even more beneficial and satisfying.

Custom Eyelash Extensions by Natasha Allen

Editors Note: The following is a guest-post by esthetician Natasha Allen of Rain City Beauty Bar. RCBB’s services are available for booking through our website using the same “Book Now” button you would use to book a massage. While her services are available in the same place as The Good Life Massage and can be booked through the same website, RCBB does not honor GLM credit or promotions and vice-versa.

My name is Natasha Allen. I’m a licensed esthetician and certified lash artist. I specialize in custom lash extensions, but I also offer facial and body waxing.

What are custom eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are individual, synthetic lashes that look just like your own natural lash hairs. They are perfect for giving you fuller, curvier, and longer lashes.

Eyelash extensions are not simply the common strip-lashes or three-pronged cluster lashes. Instead, they are applied carefully and one-by-one, isolating each individual eyelash with tweezers and following the natural line of the eye.

Do I have to keep coming back to have it done?
It depends on how long you want them. This service is semi-permanent and the longevity is dependent on the client following the after-care advice at home.

The human eyelash grows for about 30 days and rests for around 60 days. After this they start to naturally fall out, and a new growth cycle begins.

In order to keep your lash extensions full and looking great, simple maintenance or “in-fill” appointments are required typically every 2-3 weeks and only take 60-90 minutes. For best results, continuing in-fills are necessary because, like your fingernails and the hair on your head, your individual eyelashes grow out on a continuous cycle of replenishment.

Custom eyelash extensions are also perfect for special occasions, such as weddings, vacations, and photo shoots.

Are they safe?
If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes.

What’s the bottom line?
I offer a full classic set for $150. Mention The Good Life Massage newsletter or this blog post and I will take $30 off your first full set.

I will also take $5 off any first-time waxing service through September 2015.
