      BioMaris Thalassofacial
      The elemental force of the sea acts as a balance between mineral substances and trace elements.
      Thalassa (the Greek word for the sea) are treatments developed from the scientifically proven fact that sea
      ingredients play a leading role in human health. Sea water contains high concentrations of magnesium,
      calcium, iodine, and other vital elements. Adding back the trace minerals and vitamins to the skin
      following peels or Microdermabrasion will dramatically speed the healing process. It acts as an
      anti-inflammatory, regulates water balance, soothes, and increases elasticity. Following this hour and a
      half treatment, a moisture ampoule is our gift to continue the benefits you can sea.

My tootsies hurt. Because many of the toxins your body releases settles in the bottom
of your soles, a regular pedicure is a must to improve circulation to the joints and tis-

feet to the rest of your body. Many therapists believe that the feet are mirrors to many                       7

medically-based pedicure can achieve.
