Benefits of Acupuncture Facial

Nirvelli Day Spa acupuncture facialAcupuncture is a traditional Chinese form of medicine that has been popular since ancient times. It is known for its treatment of almost everything, from physical to mental conditions. In recent years, many patients using this form of therapy for their health conditions have realized a beauty effect. From this came the rise of acupuncture facials. This facial entails using needle stimulation on specific points of the skin on the face to facilitate the rebalancing of the whole body. The pins are placed in your jaw, temple, frown lines, and other points decided by your acupuncturist. The face and skin are the primary indicators of what is going on in your body, and an acupuncture facial will benefit your skin, body, and health.

Stress Relief, Relaxation and Energy Boost

At the beginning of the session, your acupuncturist will gather information regarding your work habits, diet, allergies, mental and general health history. This report gives an account as to the state of your face and body. When inserting the needles into your facial skin, the blockages and damage to your body are gauged, and immediately relieved. The relief is followed by an energy rush and calmness in the body that remains long after the session.

Brightening Dull Skin

Acupuncture prompts a healing process in the skin. The needles trigger lymphatic drainage, collagen production, and increased circulation. They also produce a boost in energy flow in the face hence repairing dullness of the skin.


The treatment is originally designed to ease conditions such as poor lymphatic drainage, poor digestion, and allergies – conditions that cause puffiness in the face. The punctures from the needles on the skin of the face result in reduced puffiness and healing in the face, and an internal restoration of wellness.

Acne Control

Acne is indicated by breakouts on the surface of the skin commonly on the face. Acupuncture relieves the hormonal imbalance, internal heat and digestive problems that are internally causing the breakouts. This procedure induces a restoration of the skin cells and better-looking skin.

Calming Rosacea

Rosacea bears a similarity to acne and is treated in the same way. The acupuncture restores the body’s natural balance and eases digestion functions in the body. The result is minimized redness and irritation in the skin tissue.

Remove Unwanted Body Hair this Summer with Waxing

Nirvelli Day Spa waxingSummer is a time when you can flaunt your perfect figure in off-shoulder outfits, short shorts, and bathing suits. Waxing is the secret of flawless beauty which makes your skin soft, smooth, and appealing. There are different ways of hair removal, but waxing is recommended most by aestheticians due to the long lasting results and minimum side effects. Moreover, the available products and variety in waxing make it suitable for different skin types.

Benefits of Waxing

Unlike shaving and plucking methods, waxing is safe and effective and doesn’t  harm your skin when it’s done by a trained technician. It makes your skin smooth by removing the hair by the root. After the two days of shaving, hair starts growing and causes stubble which doesn’t only look bad but also causes irritation.  After waxing, you will enjoy the summer without having to think about shaving.  No more nicks from shaving just smooth skin.There is little or no pain to waxing when expert hands perform the job. You need to repeat waxing every 3-8 weeks (depending on how fast your hair grows). Waxing products also remove the dead cells present on the skin and bring out healthy, shiny skin.

Process of Waxing

Make sure the length of hair is about one-quarter inch when you are going to wax – any shorter and the hair cannot be removed by waxing, any longer and the waxing process is more uncomfortable. Whether using a beeswax or paraffin resins, test the melted wax on the skin to check for any adverse reaction. A sturdy cloth or waxing strips are placed over the area where the warm wax is applied. A quick tug and the hair is removed by the roots. This procedure is repeated one small area at a time until all hair is removed for the desired result.


  • Never use any cream or lotion on the skin immediately after waxing because the pores of the skin are open and easily irritated
  • No hot baths and skin services for 24 hours.
  • Never wax if there are any wounds or rashes present on the skin.
  • Apply anti-allergic creams if redness doesn’t go away.

Massage and Inflammation

Nirvelli day Spa massageMassage healing has been used for centuries. In fact, there are many kinds of massages available which help in healing. Healing is achieved by promoting the flow of blood, stimulating nerves, relieving tension, eliminating wastes in the body.

Carbonic acid and lactic acid build up during muscle activity and causes spasms and soreness after a physical workout. A massage therapist is able increase the potency of the immune system. Increasing blood circulation in the areas affected aids in the recovery of the tissues.

One of the immediate benefits of a soothing massage is inflammation reduction. Inflammation is defined as the swelling up of a wound due to the fight between bacteria and white blood cells. It can cause a variety of problems that include soreness, swelling, redness, irritation, ache and the worst of all “functional loss”. We at Nirvelli Day Spa have professionals that will help you in relieving all kinds of pain and aches related to inflammation through a series of massages that you will enjoy and savor for a long time.

Inflammation of Acute Nature

There are two kinds of inflammation which occur in the human body after an injury whether internal or external. The first kind of inflammation occurs just after an injury or infection in the tissue or skin of humans. The area around the injury swells up and reddens because of the immune system action trying to defend the body. It is a natural response of the body. Therefore, it may not be a worry unless the swelling remains for a long period.

Inflammation of Chronic Nature

Inflammation of chronic nature occurs when the immune systems keep on fighting the injury even after the injury has been healed. The white blood cells have no injuries to fight so they turn towards the healthy cells. This brings about a reaction in which constant swelling and pain becomes part of the daily routine. This can further turn into long lasting health problems.

How a Massage Helps

Massage, besides having other benefits, has been proved to be largely beneficial when it comes to chronic inflammation. It treats the inflammation by allowing the blood flow to increase which consequently eliminates the fluid waste from the tissues. Massage brings back the normal functioning and reduces the swelling. Joints like knees and elbows are mainly involved in the mobility and they are prone to inflammation. This inflammation causes pain and swelling leading to immobility.

Apart from these physical disturbances, inflammation also gives rise to anxiety. Massaging those joints helps not only in reducing the inflammation but also helps in relaxation and reducing anxiety.

So what are you waiting for? Contact Nirvelli Day Spa and book the perfect massage session to feel the benefits of reducing inflammation in your body today.  Call 919-297-0107.

Massages – How Long Do Benefits Last?

Nirvelli Day Spa massageMassages are wonderful.  They help us relax and unwind from the stress and anxiety life can bring.  They give us time to ourselves away from friends and family, and they help us realign our centers of emotional and spiritual balance.  Plus, a great massage can help stave off other medical interventions that are not as natural, and that possibly have unfortunate side effects.  No one will argue that a massage is a great thing to gift yourself or someone else.

How great would it be if one massage and its benefits lasted a whole year or longer?  Well, that is wishful thinking.  We know that’s not possible.  But how long do the benefits of massages last, and how often should you get a massage to keep the good feelings going?

The short answer is that it depends on several factors.  Everyone’s body responds differently to a massage, and everyone’s needs for a massage are different.  Add to that the fact that everyone goes back to situations after a massage with various stressors and lifestyles, so it can be hard to know how long the benefits will last.

Generally speaking, you may feel sore for a couple of days after the massage, which is normal.  Beyond that, the benefits may last a couple of days to an entire week. There are some things you can do to help the relaxing, stress-relieving benefits last for as long as possible.

Avoid Outside Noise

Right after your massage, you will want to drive nice and slow.  Let the aggressive drivers pass you.  Also, do not listen to loud music that gets you pumped up and avoid the TV, especially the news.  Shut out anything from a media source within your control that may stress you.

Keep it Light

Avoid eating a heavy meal after a massage.  Eating a large meal will make your blood pressure rise and make you feel uncomfortable.  Rather, try a light snack like carrots dipped in some light ranch dressing.

Drink Carefully

Avoid caffeinated beverages after a massage as they can make you feel hyper.  Instead, drink water to help with soreness the next day and to hydrate.  Water will also help flush waste from your system.

You can try these additional hacks to make your massage last longer.

  • Wear comfortable, baggy clothes after your massage
  • Avoid strenuous activity
  • Extend your time to yourself
  • Avoid stress
  • Continue getting massages on a weekly or bi-weekly basis

No matter why you are getting a massage, they offer one of the most pleasant feelings of elation and release from stress and anxiety.  While one cannot predict how long massage benefits will last for an individual, you can do certain things to help extend that relaxed feeling.  The main takeaway here is to avoid stress-inducing situations for as long as you possibly can!
