My Personal Favorite and Number One Gift Including Father’s Day, ORMOND MASSAGE AND WELLNESS With Father’s Day fast approaching many don’t think about getting a massage for dad as an appropriate gift. Not in my family. You see caring for our body, mind and spirit go hand and hand in my house. And not just mine, ask Cynthia Schulze, owner of Ormond Massage and Wellness Center, what was her inspiration to open a massage parlor (wink,) and her story will change the way you look at homeopathic treatments and cures. Her own battle with cancer and how her pain was relieved from
lymphatic drainage massage and foot detox is an inspiration to many facing their own treatments. Located in the northern end of Ormond Beach, just south of Destination Daytona at 1450 North US 1, Ormond Wellness Center sits within a professional center. Once inside the tranquil setting you are immediately set at ease before you retire to a dimly lit room, filled with relaxing sounds where your trained massage therapists ask all the right questions to ensure your massage renders the results you seek. By asking how I felt and my goals from the days therapy, Licensed Massage Therapist Christina Beres set me at ease with her professionalism. Along with Heather Fouts and Heather O’Bara, this talented team are guaranteed to deliver improvement in your health and wellbeing. While I went with the 2 1/2hour package that included the Swedish relaxation massage,
the experts at Ormond Massage and Wellness offer other kinds of massage such as Hot Stone, Lymph Drainage, Reflexology even a Sports Massage. If you are new to getting a massage rest assured you can relax in the silence, or if you feel more comfortable with interaction the staff is delightful and comfortable. On my visit in May, I took advantage of the 4 parts of treatment offered by Ormond Massage and Wellness and moved on to the comfortable room of the esthetician, Damaris Salgado. My facial was one of the highlights of the visit with the lasting effect of glowing skin that remained with me for a week after the treatment which included a skin vacuum. The products used are Dermalogica which is the number one choice of skin care professionals around the world. My next treatment as part of the package included a foot and hand treatment. The hand paraffin treatment feels amazing. This wax treatment, mixed with essential oils, not only makes your skin feel amazing but gives you better mobility by warming the connective tissue. The ionic foot detox will render you speechless. As the water changes different colors from bright green to orange, even a muddy brown you can see the toxins leaving your body and also be aware of which areas of your

body it’s cleansing as well as symptoms. A truly eye-opening experience and a chance to get to know the center’s owner Cynthia a little more. I would recommend the $115.00 package to anyone and everyone and well worth the drive if you live on the other side of town. Their more then affordable rates make it well worth the drive.

Restore your health today with natural alternatives that treat the cause, not the symptom. Call Cynthia at Ormond Health and Wellness and be sure to tell her that Tammy from BackStage Pass Magazine sent you.
