Unlock the Fountain of Youth: Terminalia Chebula’s Natural Anti-Aging Wonders Revealed!

In the quest for youthful, glowing skin, breakthroughs in skincare are unveiling some truly magical secrets. A recent study, featured in the respected Journal of Clinical Medicine, shines a light on the incredible effects of Terminalia Chebula, revealing its remarkable potential in combating the signs of aging.

It’s like nature’s gift to your skin with treasure trove of benefits: 

Improving skin structure, restoring its natural rhythm, fixing damaged proteins, boosting the skin’s defences, increasing crucial hydration markers like Filaggrin & Aquaporin-9.  In clinical trials, it visibly reduced aging signs on faces and reversed skin damage caused by everyday pollutants.  

As we age, our skin undergoes significant changes. Think of it as a story where structures alter, cells change, some become inactive while still staying busy. These inactive cells release things that make the skin behave differently, like a switch affecting how our skin looks, feels, and functions.

This clinical study explored how Terminalia Chebula could reverse the effects of these less active cells and the results were amazing!

The cells treated with Terminalia Chebula looked and acted younger. They showed fewer signs of aging and released fewer things that could make skin misbehave. Simply put, Terminalia Chebula helped turn back the clock on how these skin cells function.

This incredible study shows how Terminalia Chebula works like a magical elixir for your skin. It’s like giving your skin a dose of nature’s own anti-aging power. Backed by scientific evidence, our 

Equilibrium Mist offers more than just surface-level improvements. 

Imagine having a secret ingredient that helps your skin look and feel younger.  Terminalia Chebula is that secret. 

It’s not just about looking good—it’s about your skin feeling its best. Embrace the power of nature and science with our Equilibrium mist with Terminalia Chebula, Organic Rose Hydrosol, beneficial bacterial cultures and absolutely nothing else.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is an ancient healing technique where we bring about a fundamental change in the skin by clearing blockages, creating space and movement in the underlying structures, so that the skin can function better.

The result is a reduction in the appearance of congestion and pimples, wrinkles, sagging and dullness, under-eye darkness and puffiness. You may notice a more clearly defined jawline, more toned neck and jowl, lifted appearance of the eye and an overall brighter skin complexion after just one session.

Because this work ultimately improves the health and function of your skin and tissues, many of our clients report reduced jaw tension, headaches and sinus congestion.

Buccal Facial Massage

Both preventative and corrective, buccal massage (pronounced “buckle”) is a specialized treatment that blends facial sculpting massage and intraoral (inside the mouth) massage.

Buccal facial massage promotes a deep release of tight facial muscles, as well as relaxation of surface tension, resulting in improved TMJ conditions, softening of facial lines, recovered muscle tone, reduced puffiness, and better cheek and jaw definition.

Hailed as the new, non-invasive facelift, buccal massage is a natural way to slow down premature ageing with the added health benefits of reducing emotional blockages, releasing tension caused by stress, and improving lymphatic drainage. 

Buccal massage works simultaneously on the oral cavity and face, allowing your practitioner to reach deeper layers of muscle tissue and ligaments. The repetitive and rhythmic movements of this massage help to retrain the muscle to lift the face and improve muscle elasticity, while also relaxing both deep and surface tension, allowing for a more natural facial posture. With many lymph nodes in the cheeks, jaw, and neck, buccal facial massage also improves lymph flow to reduce puffy eyes, dark circles, and sagging skin, while improving skin detoxification.

Pressotherapy Treatment

Pressotherapy is a medical and beauty treatment that promotes lymphatic drainage by using air pressure on different parts of the body. By alternating between compression and decompression, it effectively stimulates the lymphatic system. 

Benefits of pressotherapy

You can enjoy many positive health and beauty benefits from applying pressure waves. You will see improvements to circulatory system disorders and venous issues like varicose veins, tired legs and heavy limbs.

If you are thinking about getting fit and losing weight, this type of treatment may be for you. By combining pressotherapy, diet and exercise, you will see better results in less time. You can also treat swelling or drain the toxins, fats and liquids that cause cellulite. You will recover skin elasticity, increasing oxygen flow to the body’s tissues and helping them regenerate.

The treatment also stimulates the immune system, building up your defenses against pathogens, and can even help you lower your blood pressure if you have hypertension.

Elite athletes also use pressotherapy to improve their physical fitness. It is the perfect complement for toning muscles and joints. But is also relaxes the muscles, reducing muscle fatigue and preventing pain and cramping. Moreover, it strengthens connective tissues, alleviates stress and tension and reduces muscle spasms.

Who can benefit from the therapy?

You don’t have to have a health or beauty issue to receive this treatment. You can receive pressotherapy sessions to improve your health and well-being.

However, it can be quite useful for people with cellulite, bloating, varicose veins, circulatory issues, tired legs, rheumatism or menopause. It is also suitable for all ages.

Does pressotherapy have any contraindications?

There are practically no contraindications, but there are cases for which the treatment is not recommended. You should not receive pressotherapy if you suffer from deep vein thrombosis, infections in the areas to be treated, body pain or numbness, if you are a cancer patient or have a pacemaker, if you have heart disease. If you are pregnant ask your Doctor or midwife first. The treatment is very useful after giving birth and during postpartum recovery. 

Practicing sports is not recommended before or after receiving the therapy. If you have any questions, please contact a professional in the field for personalized advice.

How soon are results seen?

You’ll need to do more than one session to see the results of pressotherapy. But after the first session you will feel a clear improvement to your physical fitness, especially in terms of the elasticity and flexibility of the tissues. The professional will then assess how many sessions you need.

LED Light Treatment

Red light and near infrared light harness therapeutic wavelengths of natural light and delivers it directly to your skin. The photons of red and near-infrared react with the mitochondria in your cells, where they stimulate the electrons during cellular respiration—the process that’s responsible for all our adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. Helping the skin cells operate at their full potential!

Light therapy has been widely studied in clinical trials around the world for decades, starting with NASA nearly 30 years ago. In trial after trial, light therapy has been found safe and effective at promoting a wide range of pretty incredible health benefits.

Skin Health & Anti-Aging: Studies have found light therapy improves skin tone & complexion, diminishes signs of aging, speeds the healing of wounds and scars, and boosts natural collagen production. In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 74% of the participants reported a visible improvement in fine lines and wrinkles. Natural red and near-infrared light has also been found in clinical trials to have a therapeutic effect on the symptoms of painful skin conditions like psoriasis and acne.

Healing Wounds & Burns: Red light therapy has been shown in trials to aid the healing of wounds, burns, and scars by inducing the release of cytokines and chemokines in cells. In a 2018 study of light therapy and chronic wounds in diabetes patients, researchers found that the group treated with an LED device for 8 weeks resulted in scars with a smaller mean surface area compared to the non-LED group.

Why We Love the Silk Peel MicroDermabrasion

Praised for its ability to rejuvenate and renew the skin, microdermabrasion has been one of the most long-standing and popular choices in skin resurfacing and brightening. The goal of traditional microdermabrasion is to mechanically slough away the outermost layer of skin using crystals that rapidly penetrate the skin to reveal a brighter, healthier complexion. With new skin abrasion technologies coming to the forefront, we were intrigued by the newest form of Wet/DryMicrodermabrasion: Bio Brasion.


What Makes It Superior to MicroDermabrasion? 

Traditional Microdermabrasion, developed in 1985, is a non-invasive procedure that uses tiny crystals to remove the uses a special instrument that employs tiny exfoliated crystals to help remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells to replace the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones.  While the goal of Bio Brasion treatment is the same, there are a few factors that set Bio Brasion

Rather than using fine crystals to penetrate the skin, Bio Brasion is considered a controlled exfoliation in that it uses a diamond-head tip that is controlled by the skin therapist. Unlike microdermabrasion, it is performed on wet skin to loosen up dead skin cells. As well, because Bio Brasion uses a lower suction, the treatment is typically better for all skin types – whereas those with sensitive skin and weak capillaries would be advised to avoid traditional microdermabrasion treatments. The gentle suction also helps to remove impurities and increase blood flow to the epidermis, encouraging cell turnover and production of collagen and elastin. What the end result boils down to is a more effective, deeper and risk-free exfoliation that reveals hydrated and radiant
