The small choices we make today affect the health of the world we leave to future generations. Every product we use ends up in the waters and in the earth. Everything we put on our skin is absorbed into our body, and can affect the health of our entire being. Therefore, it is important to be conscious of the chemicals to which we may expose ourselves, our children and our planet.
When you receive a massage from Shalon Da~Nai, LMT, at Healing Hands Chiropractic, you can relax knowing that you are not getting any chemicals with your therapy. Shalon uses Hobacare organic Jojoba oil for all of her sessions. Jojoba is pressed from the seeds of the desert jojoba plant. Jojoba is nourishing for the skin and hair, non-greasy, non-allergenic and non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores). It is odorless and will not stain clothing.
“Of more than 350,000 identified plant species, jojoba is the only one which produces significant quantities of liquid wax esters akin to the natural restorative esters produced by human sebaceous glands.” (http://www.jojobacompany.com/index.htm )
The cotton flannel sheets used during your massage are washed in unscented, hypoallergenic detergent that is biodegradable and free of petroleum-based surfactants. To reduce static and add softness, Shalon uses Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Dryer Sheets. These dryer sheets contain a vegetable-derived softening agent and natural essential oils on a biodegradable paper sheet. Subtle hints of lavender add to the relaxation of your massage session.
