Health Benefits of Massage Therapy on a Regular Basis


 

Here at SPA LUX, we create a tranquil oasis to ensure your visit to our spa is relaxing and peaceful. We know that the most demanded services are the massage treatments. Amongst many benefits massage therapy relieves stress, reduces anxiety, and helps you sleep better. Please read about some of the health benefits of massage therapy and reasons why you should schedule your next appointment at SPA LUX.

Sleep Better

Research has shown that more than a third of Americans suffer from sleep deprivation. Massage therapy can decrease depression and anxiety levels, helping you sleep soundly and peacefully. A massage can also alleviate pain, which often causes sleep disturbances at night.

A pattern of sleep deficiency can lead to many dreaded health conditions. Amongst them obesity, diabetes, and an increased risk of high blood pressure. However, you can prevent them with frequent use of massage. And, you can do it in a wonderful facility of SPA LUX.

Relieve Tension Headaches

Tension headaches can be a damper to anyone’s day. Stress triggers these awful headaches, and they can be hard to get rid of - medicine might only give you a temporary symptom relief. Massage therapy can treat the source of your headache by targeting muscles in your neck, face, head, and shoulders.

Take relaxation to the next level and add-on a Revitalizing Scalp Treatment to your massage service. This service uses Eucalyptus and Peppermint Essential Oils in a gentle, rhythmic massage to the scalp and neck to improve circulation. Learn more about this treatment here.

Eliminate Stress

Everyday worries create unwanted stress, and stress can be very hard on the body. As they say: “All sickness is caused by bad nerves”. Stress can negatively affect your cardio-vascular health and cause your blood pressure to rise. Over time, a build-up of constant stress can lead to chronic illness, or make your symptoms worse.

Thankfully, you can successfully combat stress with the Swedish Massage. Although it feels extremely relaxing, this massage gently stimulates the whole organism, which enables the body to feel rebalanced. A Swedish Massage is designed for relaxation, so therapists utilize light to medium pressure. Discover more about this service on our website now.

How to Make Mother's Day Memorable This Year at SPA LUX


Every year, Mother’s Day seems to creep up on us when we’re not looking – hence the mad rush to the drug store or gas station for yet another sad bouquet of wilted roses or a last-minute greeting card. It’s true that it’s the thought that counts, but this year turn your kind thoughts into applause-worthy action by giving your favorite mom the ultimate gift: relaxation.

SPA LUX is an oasis of pampering and calm where ladies – and men! – can indulge in a wide range of luxurious treatments. Here are a few of our favorites, all at great deals for the month of May in celebration of Mother’s Day.

Purifying Facial – 85 Minutes

Now $120 (Regularly $140)

Just like our other SPA LUX facials, the Purifying Facial starts with a comprehensive skin analysis and personal consultation so treatment can be completely customized. From deep pore cleaning and exfoliation to extractions and a detoxifying shiatsu pressure point massage, this facial promotes healing and works to banish future breakouts before they occur.

Side-by-Side Couples Massage – 85 Minutes

Now $200 Per Pair (Regularly $220)

Use Mother’s Day as an opportunity to reconnect with a Side-by-Side Massage for two. Great for that special gift of quality mother/daughter time together, you will receive a therapeutic full-body massage as well as access to our steam room and sauna, so you can turn your 85-minute treatment into an entire afternoon of conversation and fun.

Any Bikini Waxing

Pool season is on the horizon. Help your busy wife with a little pre-vacation prep when you give the gift of a swimsuit, high, or Brazilian bikini wax that’ll leave her fuzz-free and ready for the beach. Our French hard wax is very gentle and works even at cooler temperatures so it’s ideal for even the most sensitive spots.

Dead Sea Salt Polish – 30 Minutes

Now $45 (Regularly $60)

Winter often leaves our skin feeling tight, dry, and itchy, and between soccer practice and overseeing homework, there’s never enough time to moisturize at home. Our Dead Sea Salt Polish uses an all-natural, mineral-rich mixture that combines legendary Dead Sea salts and beneficial essential oils to exfoliate, purify, and hydrate thirsty skin. Afterward, all the crystals are washed away under a four-head Vichy shower, resulting in radiant skin that feels both soft and refreshed.

Not sure which luxurious treatment your Mother’s Day superstar might prefer? A SPA LUX gift certificate is a great way to offer up options. You can pick one up at our day spa or, for the ultimate convenience, buy one online and you can instantly print, email, or text your certificate to yourself or your loved one.­


MEET SPA LUX MASSAGE THERAPIST TAMRA LEWIS


Tamra Lewis was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She attended the local Clary Sage College where she studied a broad range of integrated massage therapies, including sports massage, pregnancy massage, hydrotherapy, reflexology, aromatherapy, East Asian spa treatments, and deep tissue massage in Tulsa.

The hands-on training and anatomy and physiology lessons Tamra received at Clary Sage are put to good use here at SPA LUX. Tamra specializes in Swedish Massage, a relaxing therapy that uses light pressure and long, soothing strokes to stimulate body flow and rebalance the client’s system. Swedish Massage is great for relaxation and stress relief but it can also help eliminate toxins, mitigate pain, and make joints more flexible. Swedish Massage is also a great entry point for clients who are new to massage or who want a relaxing session rather than a massage focused on problem areas or medical concerns.

Tamra loves working with the welcoming, dedicated, and engaged staff at SPA LUX. Everyone is eager to learn and deliver the best massage in Tulsa customer service possible, two things Tamra herself is passionate about.

When she’s not at SPA LUX, Tamra enjoys reading, hanging out with family and friends, and shopping.
