Aroma Stone 

Full Body Massage

this involves the application of heated volcanic stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. using

Microneedling is a procedure where the surface skin on your face receives multiple microscopic punctures, which creates micro-injuries with several small, sterile needles.
With each puncture, your body reacts by triggering its own ability to heal. This involves the production of new collagen and elastin. As the new collagen and elastin are produced, your skin is rejuvenated. Within weeks of treatment, you’ll notice improvements in your skin’s texture and tone.
