LED Facial Perfect for either Acne or Anti-aging. Blue light for Acne, Red/multi light for Anti-Aging. Let’s clarify: When P. acne bacteria builds up in the pores, skin becomes inflamed, causing acne lesions and blemishes. Celluma light therapy works safely and effectively, without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV-rays or side effects, to combat this acne-causing bacteria — not only minimizing existing blemishes, but preventing future breakouts before they happen.
Using wavelengths that are scientifically proven to stimulate fibroblasts to increase collagen and elastin, Celluma’s low-level light therapy is a safe, effective and convenient way to achieve a healthy, youthful glow in a natural, non-toxic, non-invasive manner. Recommend initial LED Facial followed by 3-6 LED Treatments spaced 3-5 days apart for progressive results. Some clients choose the LED Facial as their monthly maintenance facial, you can feel and notice a difference in as little as one facial, especially if you haven’t had one in awhile.
Express Facial A treatment that focuses primarily on cleansing and maintaining. Great for those who have typically healthy clear skin but are pressed for time and in need of a quick enhancement. This is not recommended if you are congested or prefer more extractions, please book a customized or acne facial instead.

Our detoxification programs help the body cleanse itself of toxins, mucus and other waste materials in the intestinal tract and major vital organs, improving the way they function. This not only restores new energy to the vital organs, but to the entire body as well. The natural formulas used in our programs have been in use since 1985. You can feel confident that these programs are safe and effective. Unlike other detoxification programs, you are eating solid food during the 30-days with an exception of two 3-day liquid only juice days that takes place on days 9-11 and 28-30. Also included are optional meal replacement shakes and supplements that help appease the appetite. Your body uses about 40% of its energy to digest food, on the 3-day liquid juice days, many clients experience an increase in energy as your energy is not used on digesting food and redirected toward healing and other activities. In 20-30 days, this program can transform the way you look, feel, and consume food resulting in a healthier body, mind, and spirit. 11-day is available both as an introductory and maintenance program. You can start with eleven and decide to go for twenty or thirty. Benefits of an 11, 20 or 30-day Detoxification Program:
Swedish Massage consist of long gliding strokes in the direction of blood flow toward the heart. It is one of the most common types of massage with the primary intention being relaxation. Pressure may vary from light to firm but is NOT a deep tissue massage.
Deep Tissue Massage – Improve circulation, flexibility and range of motion. Release tension, break down scar tissue, or newly formed adhesions/knots that are smaller in size and help allow muscles to glide as they should. For larger adhesions, chronic issues that have been there for awhile or as a result of injuries, Sports Massage is also recommended.
Hot Stone Massage Hot stones are applied to tense areas or trigger points to aid in relaxation and allow for a deeper massage where needed. Hot stones help open blood vessels resulting in better circulation and can be physically and mentally relaxing. The massage itself will include a mixture of Swedish and Deep Tissue.
Cinq Mondes – Ritual of Fes, Morocco, “Moroccan Massage” A genuine art of living massage, this ritual rigorously follows, from head to toe, the musculature of the body. The expert hands of the massage therapist work tender knots and tension by following the muscular mapping of the body while using warm mystical Argan oil blended with deep enveloping sensorial and mysterious aromatic notes – eliminates toxins and muscle pains while promoting a state of PURE WELLNESS.
Phytomer Sea Holistic Massage – An ultra-relaxing treatment with its gentle warmth and fragrant scent of lavender flowers.
A combination of light-medium strokes and pressure from the boluses. An original body massage using Thai-inspired sea boluses eliminates tension knots using warm boluses filled with fresh lavender and sea salt crystals from France. Restores balance to the body.The ultimate stress relieving / relaxing massage treatment.
Sports Massage – Different from a deep tissue massage in which pressure is adjusted to manipulate the deeper tissue layers in the body. What are the deeper layers? It’s the tissue layers that lay on top of the muscle, though not the muscle itself. The therapist works on these layers in a Deep Tissue massage, but not so deep as to work all the way through like with a Sports Massage. Deep Tissue pressure is still effective to release any NEWLY formed or SMALL knots and tension. We emphasize new or small knots because larger knots are caused by a build up over time, or possibly due to an injury. This is where a specially trained Sports Massage therapist can provide more relief.
A Sport Massage is the manipulation of the MUSCLE itself (soft tissue) in order to prevent or improve injuries. It’s going past the layers down to the muscle, might be a bit intense and requires conscious breathing. The therapist has a broader, more specified knowledge and application. He or she needs this in order to efficiently and safely manipulate the muscles. Therapists who perform Sports Massage tend to work on athletes or those who have had injuries. Communication with your therapist is critical if you’ve had injuries.
Aromatouch Therapy Using the purest essential oils by doTerra, this treatment takes a clinical approach to essential oil application. Using eight different oils applied down the spine and back and two oils on the bottom of your feet to promote stress relief, immune enhancement and calm inflammation.

Aromatherapy Massage Using the purest essential oils by doTerra, this treatment combines Swedish Massage with 1-2 essential oil or a signature essential oil blend such as Serenity, Elevation, Balance, or Citrus Bliss. The combination allows for complete mind-body relaxation.
Prenatal Massage Massage during pregnancy can ease discomfort, pressure is light-medium, deep pressure is NOT recommended and position may be on your side with pillows depending on how far long you are. Please note how many weeks or months in the notes section when booking.

The Detox Body Wrap is one of our best-selling treatments. Our clients love our detox body wrap because it’s a relaxing treatment that will detoxify their tissues, tighten their skin, result in inch loss, break down cellulite, reduce water retention all while hydrating the skin and increasing overall energy. This amazing detox wrap does wonders for the body. It helps to free and remove trapped waste in the connective tissue, eliminating internal disfiguring deposits and stimulate inch loss. Some signs that you may need a body detox include:
*Symptoms listed above could also be attributed to other serious health problems, so it’s always best to visit your physician first to rule out any other serious ailments.
How can a detox body wrap help? Detox wraps are a great compliment to any detoxification program. Whether you are juicing, fasting or changing your diet to cleanse your system, a detox body wrap can support or increase the benefits of your program. The detox wrap can help to release toxic buildup trapped in connective tissue by increasing lymph and blood flow to areas where toxins are present. It can also improve your immune system as toxins are eliminated. Cellulite is described as a condition of uneven deposits of fat, water and toxins that are trapped in connective tissue. Studies found the biggest contributor toward cellulite condition was poor circulation (other contributors: caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, increased hormonal activity, drugs, stress, not drinking enough water, overcooked fatty or dead food). Loss of blood flow to an area, whether from lack of exercise, excessive sitting, clogged arteries, or nutrient deficiency have a big impact on its formation. To permanently remove cellulite from the body you need to start at the source of a toxic body and detoxify internally.
How our Detox Wrap compare to others? 1) 100% herbal based treatment with Vitamin B3. The cream we use in the wrap was originally developed by a bio-chemist from the UCLA Medical center to encourage circulatory and lymphatic flow in patients suffering from diabetes or any disease that inhibited circulation, especially in the lower extremities. It doesn’t contain any preservatives, fillers or artificial fragrances. One of the main ingredients, vitamin B3 (Niacin) increases circulation to reduce the cycle of cellulite formation by stimulating the body’s own natural lymph elimination function. The lymph system is responsible for sweeping toxins, bacteria, virus and germs from the body. Often this process is inhibited by poor eating habits and lack of exercise. The wraps are designed to work internally and externally to help rid the body of waste. 2) Works for up to 3 days in your body. Did you know that with an internal cleanse wrap (our detox wrap) there is no weight loss for at least 72 hours? With other wraps that aim to make you sweat, you will experience immediate weight loss; however, most of it is water loss. At Serenity Wellness Spa, our goal with a Detox Body Wrap is to remove toxins, not water. Sweating causes water loss and dehydration which can accelerate the aging process. In addition the weight loss returns as soon as you ingest liquids that replace the dehydration. 3) In comparison to other wraps, the cream we use nourishes, hydrates, and tightens the skin unlike clay wraps which dry the skin and can lead to premature aging. 4) Our wraps are aminophyllin free. Aminophyllin is being widely used in anti-cellulite creams. This chemical ingredient is an asthma medication, which was formulated to shrink the mucous membranes so patient could breathe. It does exactly the same externally, shrinking the cell of any moisture. This again encourages water loss and is the most damaging of cellulite treatments.
What does the treatment entail? Basically there are three (3) steps: Body exfoliation, contour cream application, body contouring. We always start with body exfoliation that removes dead cells and prepares the skin for better product absorption. Next, we apply the contour cream that increases lymph flow and blood circulation that helps to release toxins and break down cellulite. Lastly, we wrap your body with a plastic wrap similar to saran wrap but specifically designed for body wraps as it has extra stretch in it to stimulate acupressure points and flush waste materials from the body. You relax on a warm bed for approximately 60 minutes allowing the cream to absorb and toxins to start moving into the lymphatic system. During this time many of our clients add on a customized facial or 30 minute massage as a way to pass the time and come out feeling and looking great. You can opt to simply nap or relax during the treatment as well.
How long does a body wrap take & how often can I get it? We ask you to allow 75-90 minutes for each session. For optimal results we suggest a series of 3 to 5 wraps, depending on your goals and how toxic your body may be. The wraps can be done as close as 5-7 days apart. If your primary goal is to detox your body and lose weight, we strongly suggest either an 11-day, 20-day or 30-day detoxification program. On average our clients lose approximately 4-10 lbs. during one of these programs. Results vary according to toxicity and how well you follow the program, the more toxic you are the more you have to lose and some clients have lost as much as 20lbs in 30 days. Others have detox wraps for maintenance, releasing toxins every 2-4 weeks.
Do I need to exercise or wear a suit during detox wrap? No. There is absolutely no exercise involved during the wrap and no additional suit. Exercise is encouraged the day after the wrap and in general; however, not the day of the wrap or for at least 6 hours as sweating will reduce absorption of the cream.
What should I wear to be wrapped? We provide disposable under garments for men and women. If you feel more comfortable wearing your own under garments you are welcome to. Keep in mind, the cream needs to be applied in the areas where you want to experience toxins being released or inch loss.
Are there any contraindications? If you are under a Doctor’s care it makes sense always to ask him/her before trying something new. People with heart conditions (specifically conditions requiring coumadin), epilepsy, that have had cancer that is not in remission or in remission less than a year, or are pregnant or nursing should NOT be wrapped.
