Jane has authored several highly acclaimed books on both psychological and physical health.
Our treatments and products begin with the idea that the skin is the door to inner health. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and serves as a link to all the other organs. Our approach is, then, to renew the body through the skin. We use various methods of tactile stimulation through ancient as well as modern massage techniques. We use methods of detoxification to cleanse and refine the skin; we then nourish the skin through careful application of our nutrient-rich formulas, selected especially to meet the unique needs of your skin.
La Casa Spa & Wellness Center offers colonics, floatation, cleansing and body massages, body wraps, facials, oxygen therapies and pedi-detox. The services are very affordable and they work. Fashion Reverie tried it out!!
