TCM Detox Yoga

Exercise: Foam roller // Revitalization of fascia tissue with a foam roller (Blackroll, Triggerpoint Roller)
The main task of the foam roller is to loosen knots and adhesions in the connective tissue through massage. Knots and adhesions are caused for example by lack of exercise, maladjustment in everyday life or even stress.
Using the roller: Sit or lie down on the roller to specifically massaging the fascia of calves, thighs, back, etc. By pressing your own body weight into the roll and the continuous and slow rolling back and forth, the connective / fascia tissue is massaged and knots and adhesions are loosened and rolled out so bonds. Tip: In order to additionally strengthen the fascia, particularly slow and flowing movements from Yoga, Pilates or Qi Gong are suitable.

TCM Detox Treatments

Clarifying Facial care with exfoliation and mask
As a result of the detoxification process break outs and blemishes can occur.  To clarify the skin, we recommend the following treatment. Gently remove the topmost layer of dead skin cells with the Susanne Kaufmann™ enzyme peeling. Then apply the Susanne Kaufman™ Healing Earth Mask for deep cleansing and clarification of the skin. After 15 minutes, wash off and apply a day cream or regenerating cream.
