Check out our Red Light Therapy news release! Portland’s top spa adds the most powerful red light therapy bed to its menu of wellness experiences to enhance relief, relaxation and rejuvenation!
Red light therapy is a natural healing modality. It uses specific red LED wavelengths to target the mitochondria in body cells. Red light exposure strengthens the mitochondria and encourages increased production of ATP. Which is a vital energy-carrying molecule that aids in efficient functioning and rejuvenation, and speeds healing throughout the body.
Above all there are many benefits of using red light therapy. Increased energy production, wound healing, skin and hair health, stress reduction and overall enhanced well-being is especially important.
Another advanced wellness treatment we offer that has received accolades for is magnetic acupressure. Magnetic acupressure stimulates energy fields within the body and enhances the wellness of the human energy system. Above all, when stimulated these energy fields can release inflammation and blockages. This brings not only an overall sense of well-being but true pain relief.
Cupping, an ancient Taoist medical practice that dates back to the year 281 AD, is good for drawing out inflammation. At Zama, silicone and magnetic cups are used by our massage therapists to increase local blood supply to the muscles. The Detoxifier Massage brings nourishment to the tissues and allows for toxins to be carried away via the lymph.
Magnetic cups make it easy for massage therapists to re-balance tissue polarity and counteract inflammation and pain. Chronic and acute pain is relieved with minimal discomfort. Tense muscles soften quickly and easily using the silicone cups.
Additionally, Zama has the only Salt Caves available in Oregon. Although Halotherapy is cutting edge and is currently used throughout Asia and Europe, salt therapy dates all the way back to ancient Egypt. Salt has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties that provide healing benefits to the whole body- specifically the skin and respiratory system. It also stimulates healthy immune function and provides relief from stress, anxiety, and depression. Salt therapy can help you breathe easier and live better- from the inside out.
