Has your summer glow faded, but you are left with sun spots? Are you starting to notice that dry scaly skin as the season begins to change?
First, plug in those humidifiers! Second, let our Thairapist and lead esthetician Kaitlyn keep your skin glowing this fall and winter. Accept her offer of a complimentary consultation on how to best exfoliate your skin.
Kaitlyns says, "There are two ways that you can exfoliate; chemically and physically. "
Exfoliation is essential for healthy, brighter, and younger-looking skin. Why? During our day to day lives, dead skin cells build up on the surface of our faces. If we neglect to cleanse our skin well, old makeup, dirt, and oil can also join the mix. Pores become clogged and can lead to breakouts and dull skin. The best way to get rid of this build-up of dead skin cells and dull skin is to exfoliate.
Remember, you don't want to over exfoliate, twice to three times a week is best. If a chemical exfoliation is what you are in need of, it is best to do this in a series of six and you save money when you purchase a six pack!

Muscle aches are as common as thunderstorms during a Chicago summer. Deep tissue massage can help relieve your stress and muscle tension, and get you feeling good enough to enjoy the sunny days.
While Swedish massage is primarily focused on imrpving circulation and addressing superficial muscles, deep tissue focuses on the the deeper muscles and works into the connective tissue to help reduce tension in the muscles.
The benefits of a deep tissue massage include the following:
1. Release chronic muscle tension.
2. Release of trigger point/ muscle knots.
3. Relieves stress and benefits the mental and physical state of the client.
4. Promotes circulation to muscles.
5. Breaks down scar tissue and helps eliminate muscle adhesions.
It is a myth that deep tissue massage needs to be painful to be most effective. Some people's bodies do need the deep work to get the full effect, but others bodies respond completely different to pressure. The massage has to be at a clients comfort level.
What to expect from a deep tissue massage:
1. Because of the breakdown of the muscle fibers, you might experience next day soreness 2-3 days after a massage. This is similar to the feeling you get after working out.
2. Increased range of motion.
3. Less pain.
4. Lower blood pressure.
Getting waxed at Thairapy Plus provides several benefits over shaving.
The heat is on! And indoors, it is finally off. And your skin is feeling less like that of an alligator. But sun and heat cause stress to the delicate and often already compromised capillaries in the face so it's just as important to protect the skin's barrier in the summer as in the winter. It's a good idea for everyone to keep their skin protected but for folks out there with sensitive, sensitized or Rosacea skin types it's even more crucial.
The most important thing someone with sensitive skin needs to consider is that the sun causes a lot of inflammation. Although a sensitive skin type may feel more hydrated in the warmer, more humid weather, heat and sun exposure are still threats.

Summer in Chicago means riding bikes, gardening, walking, and playing sports. Don’t let an injury keep you from enjoying the most active season. Stretching, hydrating, and regular massage are the best ways to keep your muscles performing properly, and pain free. Read some tips to prevent injury from Thairapy’s licensed massage therapist Chris.
One of the best way to avoid injury is to stretch! A simple stretching routine should take about four minutes to complete, and can prevent months of pain and recovery. Stretching will not only decrease chances for injuries but also helps with muscle fatigue.
