You may not understand them…but you can help them cope
Teens have a concoction of brewing stressors such as decision-making, more responsibility, and an increase of raging hormones racing through their bodies. Male or female, they worry about school tests, fitting in with friends, facial break-outs, and their weight. Most teens spend a lot of their time in school, where they are not taught how to deal with their life stressors. Teens are pushed to the limits and they need time to relax.

Hypnotherapy for Children and Teens
There are many issues that hypnotherapy can help since many of them stem from unresolved emotional issues and stress. Hypnosis can help with asthma, allergies, aggression, nail biting, stuttering, fears, study habits, public speaking, just to name a few. Hypnosis is a “trance like state of mind” which is used to help a person gain more control over behaviors, emotions, and physical well-being. It is also helpful with addictions such as smoking, drugs, and overeating.

Teen Massage
What better gift for your child or teen than a relaxing massage. Children hold their stress in their shoulders, which can cause a lot of pain in their backs and neck. Massage therapy is empowering for children letting them know first hand how to relax. Young athletes can benefit with a sports massage, helping to alleviate discomfort and recover much faster from injuries.

Teen Waxing
Our younger generation is very fond of waxing. Many girls have dark hair for their age and they are very self-conscious about it. We use Nufree, a natural, self-preserving antibacterial soy based formula that uses no animal products, wax, sugar or honey. It joins with the hair’s oils not the skin. Results are immediate and regrowth is lighter and softer.
