Massage Detoxification and More Grand Beauty Detox Treatments !

Detoxifying the body means cleaning the blood that flows through our entire body.

Our body’s system is compromised when toxins aren’t being eliminated from our body.  Toxins that are held in our body affect every cell.  Our bodies work overtime to function normal and maintain good health.

Toxins get into our body in so many ways.  A few include:

  • household cleaning products
  • processed food
  • food grown with pesticides
  • food cooked directly over a fire
  • unfiltered water
  • airborne chemicals such as car fumes
  • cigarette smoke
  • perfume
  • home air fresheners.

Stress releases hormones into our body that create toxins as well; this slows the enzymes in the liver that help filter […]

Relax and Rejuvenate With Massage Cupping Therapy

Massage Cupping therapy is an amazing full body treatment.  It can also be added on to any massage or body treatment to target only the areas of concern.  With every stroke you will feel yourself melt into the table with relaxation and rejuvenation, taking away the stresses on your mind and body.  Therapy can be geared more aggressively to the athlete, or subtler to the average spa goer looking for some pain relief along with relaxation.

Stretch Your Body and Improve Your Well-being and Performance

At The Grand, our massage therapists are trained in Active Isolated Stretching, the highly acclaimed Aaron Mattes technique*.

This is repeated 5-10 times for each muscle depending on time available and expectations in the session. The 2-second hold is in a place of slight irritation, but not pain.  The client always communicates comfort level.  On each repetition the body […]
