My Massage Therapy Specialties at Sessions Hair, Nails & Skin in Duncanville, TX

While I am always attending seminars, courses, and continuing education classes to add to my toolkit as a massage therapist, I do have a few specialties that I tend to focus on.

Reflexology Massage

A system of massage used to relieve tension and treat illness, based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head linked to every part of the body.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage in the West. If it’s your first time at the spa or you don’t get massage often, Swedish massage is the best place to start.

Crystal Massage

A full body massage where I place crystals under the arms, at the neck, on the chakra sites and along the legs. It is followed by a reflexology treatment.

Foot Scrub

The feet are gently rubbed with a salt/oil mixture that will exfoliate, invigorate and smooth and soothe the foot.

Chair Massage

Enjoy a relaxing massage, fully clothed, while waiting in the salon! Or just relax for as long as you want as you benefit from a neck, back, hand and arm massage.

Chakra Balancing

A procedure that increases the healthy flow of energy through the chakras and therefore through the entire energy field. A healthier flow of energy through the aura creates greater physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
