Magnesium Oil

Pure Prehistoric Magnesium Oil

Magnesium Oil

 

 

Fountains is always looking for the newest and most effective products and treatments in the alternative health field, and out latest discovery is, Prehistoric Magnesium Oil (cold filtered for purity).  Though not an oil, it has a oil-like consistency, it can also be applied topically or taken orally.

 

Magnesium Chloride is a natural mineral used all over the world in homeopathic medicines, naturopathic medicines, as well as in emergency rooms. It is one of nature’s best kept secrets, and should be in every home in the United States, as it is one of the most necessary nutritional minerals which is incredibly fast-acting, safe, and very effective.

 

 

Who benefits from Prehistoric Magnesium application?

 

Magnesium deficits in the human body, have been tied to allergies, asthma, and even attention deficit disorder (ADD,) musculoskeletal conditions, such as fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, muscle cramps and chronic neck and back pain, as well as, anxiety and heart disease.

 

Magnesium deficiency is one of the most common nutritional problems in the world today, and there is no substitute for Magnesium; it is as close as necessary to our bodies as air is! It also balances DHEA, (dehydroepiandrosterone) which tends to be on the low side when the body is ill.

 

 

How do I take it?

 

Internally:

 

Drinking 3-5 sprays of Magnesium Oil in a glass of pure water is a good way to ingest magnesium internally. It assists digestion, counteracts excess acidity in the stomach, and delivers magnesium quickly into the bloodstream for distribution to all the cells in the body. The taste is not so pleasant in water and could be mixed in a pure fruit juice as an alternative. I also would recommend swirling it around in your mouth if you have any gum or mouth concerns.

 

Externally:

 

This is the quickest and most convenient way to transmit Magnesium Chloride into the cells and tissues. It can be used as an effective and safe deodorant spray for under the armpits. While it does not stop you from perspiring, it does balance out the body’s natural odor while effectively transporting Magnesium swiftly through the thin skin into the glands lymphatic channels and blood stream, for equal distribution throughout the body.

 

Magnesium Oil can also be sprayed onto the soles of the feet before bedtime to ensure continuous absorption. Finally a massage therapist can incorporate it into a massage treatment for added pain relief.

 

 

My personal experience with Prehistoric Magnesium Oil

 

I was introduced to Magnesium Oil six months ago by my Acupuncturist, as I was experiencing severe muscle cramps in my calf muscles, mostly at night and sometimes numbness in some toes in the day time. The cramps were so severe I would be unable to walk or stretch the muscles out. Needless to say, I was becoming sleep deprived, and we all know how awful that feels! It took just one application.

 

I applied the oil directly to the calf muscles the first time I used it, and I received instant relief from the most severe pain. With continuous use, I do not have the nightly pain attacks and have noticed my back is much less stiff in the morning upon rising, and of course – sleep has been so much better! My plan is to take it orally in the morning and to apply to the soles of my feet at night on a regular basis. I also plan on applying the Magnesium Oil to any areas that I experience cramping, as needed, although since starting to use the oil they have not occurred as often or have felt nearly as severe.

 

 

Use With Caution

 

Avoid contact with the eyes, do not use on your legs if you have recently shaved or have an open cut or bug bite; you will experience a stinging sensation. I recommend diluting the area with water first.

Please consult with your healthcare practitioner before using Prehistoric Magnesium Oil, if you are pregnant and\or suffering from a serious medical condition or are taking medication.

You can add on Magnesium Oil to any massage treatment to aid with treating sore muscles.

Hi there!!  I’m Brandy and I’m the newest Massage Therapist here at Fountains Day Spa.  I’m  a transplant to the area from Western New York… (cue pity remarks for being a Buffalo Bills/Sabres fan here).  I love where I’m from, everyone pulls together to help each other out. However my love for traveling has taken me all around the country and dropped me off at the Nation’s capital, and I have to say I’m loving it here!

 

 

Swedish Massage

 

 

Throughout my travels I have worn many hats, and worked many jobs, but my heart has always gone back to Massage Therapy, as it is my passion. I love being able to use my hands to help people, as well as enabling them to relax at the same time. Getting to know each of my clients, and finding out what their specific issues, and requirements are, is my specialty. I am not a one-trick-pony, I believe in customizing my routine to suit their specific needs.

 

 

With eleven years of experience and almost 1500 hours of training, I am sure to be able to customize any clients’ treatment to their liking.  I am so excited to be starting this adventure at Fountains and to provide my clientele with the best possible treatment every time.  I look forward to meeting you!!

I would like to share my favorite service to give to my clients, a combination massage. I find this massage can benefits most people coming in for massage.  I generally prefer to do deeper massages as opposed to lighter ones, and the massage gives me the green light to move past the light Swedish pressure. The combination massage is beneficial because it allows me to warm the soft tissue with Swedish techniques and then gradually increase to a deeper pressure, if needed.

 

Therapeutic Harmony

 

I recommend that a person receive a combination massage every three to four weeks,  this will keep your body and muscles on a healthy regimen, so that you don’t find yourself in agony. Regular massages are extremely important for certain people, for instance dentists, who are constantly stuck in the same position all day, with their head looking down over their patients. If you have a job that has your body under pressure from doing repetitive movements, or in the other case restricting movements, than I would  recommend receiving a Massage twice a week for a few months, switching to once a month after that, as the pain and tension begin to dissipate.

 

When I am giving a Combination Massage, I try to incorporate some stretching into it. Depending on the client, the stretching can vary from a very involved table Thai technique to stretching the hamstring group, or something as minor as a pectoralis stretch. I commonly hear from my clients after receiving a Combination Massage that they feel balanced and even taller.

 

Lastly, because the Combination Massage gradually moves from Swedish to a deep massage, people enjoy it the  because they do not feel too sore afterwards.

I think that this service is one of the most beneficial services that we offer at Fountains Day Spa, because it just makes you feel good, and the results are immediate.

 

This wrap contains a potent mix of five French seaweeds including, Laminaria, Fucus, Ulva Lactuca, Spirulina and Sea Rocket submerging the body in pure marine actives to stimulate, firm and moisturize the skin of the body. The mud contains ingredients which offer vitamins, iron, iodine, amino acids, lecithin, essential fatty acids, and mucilage, aiding in the overall detoxification. These ingredients work to stimulate the thyroid, promote decongestion and waste elimination, improving skin smoothness, re-balanced, restores proper hydration, and prevents future skin damage by fighting free radicals.

Blackbaltic

After having this treatment your joints and skin feel dramatically different. The seaweed removes toxins from your body, which leaves you feeling rejuvenated and your skin looking amazing! I recommend having this on a regular basis if you are looking to begin a healthy routine. I personally have this service done once a month, and I’ve noticed a dramatic difference in my energy level.  Others may need to have this treatment done more frequently depending on activity level and personal goals.

 

I see many of my clients who have recognized the benefits of this treatment, and continually come back to have it done. I also see clients getting this wrap before going on a vacation, before military weight ins, and after a rigorous workout routine that has left them feeling achy and sore.

Dealing with stress, and back pain? Are you caring for two human beings at the same time? If so, I understand that things can become overwhelming during this time, as well as uncomfortable! When you’re a mother to be, you want to take care of yourself and the baby as much as possible. Pregnancy massage is one natural ways to make sure that you’re caring for your baby, by taking care of yourself!

 

During many pregnancies, pain occurs in areas that you probably haven’t felt before. I hear from many clients about their back pain is unlike anything they’ve experienced before. Pregnancy Massage incorporates Swedish massage techniques with some modified positions, to help keep the Mother to be comfortable. Pregnancy Massage will aid in relieving back pain, leg cramps, as well as headaches. Pregnancy Massage can also help enhance sleep, reduce Edema (swelling), balance out hormone levels, and it can even encourage child labor, towards the end of pregnancy.

 

Ultimately, if you are pregnant and haven’t received a pregnancy massage — you should do so, and begin to feel the relief!

 

Please Note: Fountains Day Spa will preform Pregnancy Massages on women in their 2nd and 3rd trimesters only.

A Harmony massage is unlike any other massage that we offer at the spa.  It allows your therapist to integrate their personal specialties to fully customize each session according to the clients’ specific needs. This may include blending various modalities such as energy work, reflexology, intuitive bodywork, stretching, or other techniques.

 

Harmony Massage

 

By utilizing different methods, the Massage Therapist can help assess what would benefit the client most and deliver a more holistic and beneficial treatment. The Harmony massage incorporates elements that can balance the body, mind, and spirit. I find that when a client is able to fully relax and really let go of their tension and stress, they can expect to feel a sense of peace or rejuvenation, following the treatment. I have had many clients describe their experience as feeling complete or having a serene nature.

 

This service can be done anytime and gives the freedom to create a comfortable space for healing to take place.  The Harmony Massage is highly recommended for anyone looking to enhance their overall sense of well being through both physical and energetic means.
