Frequently Asked Questions
What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy works the body's soft tissue to help relieve pain and stiffness that results from tension, stress, injury, or other conditions.
Is massage therapy just for relaxation?
No! While massage therapy is a great way to relax, it offers many benefits beyond that. Massages can help reduce stress, alleviate pain, improve blood circulation, lower blood pressure, reduce headaches, manage anxiety, and improve overall wellness.
What is the difference between a Swedish massage and a deep tissue massage?
While there are some similarities between the two, there are distinct differences between a Swedish and a deep tissue massage. Overall, a Swedish massage is better for relaxation, increasing your blood circulation, to relieve pain, improve your mood, and help you sleep better. A deep tissue massage will focus more on chronic pains that are muscular in origin, and can help improve your range of motion and posture. If you're unsure which massage is best for you, contact us to speak with a licensed massage therapist in Williamsville.

How to prepare for receiving a spray tan?
Preparing for a spray tan makes all the difference on how long your tan lasts! Showering before hand and making sure to exfoliate your skin before a tan. DO NOT use salt or sugar scrubs within 24 hours of your tan because oil residue will stay on the skin and cause an uneven tan. Remove all makeup beforehand and do not wear moisturizer or deodorant.
Should you shave the same day as a spray tan?
NO, make sure you get your shaving and waxing done 24 hours before your tan.
What to wear to your spray tan appointment?
Wear/bring loose fitting clothing, try and wear darker clothes incase any residue rubs off and wear sandals to protect your tan.
What is a lash lift and how long do they last?
A lift can last anywhere from 6-8 weeks. It is a 45 minute procedure that will lift, curl or straighten and lengthen your own natural lashes to enhance a bigger and bolder natural look. A lash lift has very little maintenance that is non harmful to your real lash.
What are eye lash extensions?
Lash extensions are individual, semi permanent, black synthetic lashes that are applied to your natural lash with adhesive to give the illusion of longer, thicker and fuller looking lashes.
How do lash extensions feel?
Lashes should feel weightless and comfortable! They should never hurt you and should feel completely natural!
Are lash extensions suitable for anyone?
As long as you have a healthy natural lash long enough to adhere the extension to you will be fine! If you think your lash is too weak or thin come in for a consultation and our lash tech will will recommend the best solution!
