The use of medicinal plants as a fundamental component in the African traditional healthcare system is perhaps the oldest and the most assorted of all therapeutic systems. At There She Glows we believe in starting at the source of life itself–the earth, and Africa is considered to be the cradle of mankind with a rich biological and cultural diversity marked by regional differences in healing practices. African traditional medicine in its varied forms is holistic involving both the body and the mind. The most common traditional medicine in common practice across the African continent is the use of medicinal plants. We have borrowed these same tools of healing at There She Glows with our Live Plant Wall which sprouts out fresh herbs, flowers, & plants we incorporate into treatments therapies.
Originated in ancient China, Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient form of healing that has endured and evolved throughout history.
Many of the treatments we offer at There She Glows marry this form of healing with european spa culture. These treatments have proven to be a form of medicine that is non-invasive, preventive and integral: of the skin, self, and soul.
Most of our health problems begin manifesting themselves when an energy imbalance arises in the body. Our treatments help to unlock the energy points allowing the energy flow once again & achieve harmony within the body.
Chinese philosophy states that the universe and the body can be described by two separate but complementary principles: Yin and Yan. Nothing is completely Yin or Yan, but a combination of both. These two principles are always interacting, opposing, influencing each other. When there is an imbalance between the two that is when conditions or diseases in our body are generated. By using traditional Chinese therapies such as geotherapy, acupressure, facial cupping, & physiotherapy we open the door for holistic synergy.
We have crafted an exquisite menu of Face & Body Experiences that incorporate both Traditional African & Chinese methodologies of healing. Our goal is to awaken all the senses to bring balance and awareness back to the every day human who is often desensitized by modern day technology. Smell the fresh fruits and herbs picked fresh that morning, feel the tingle of the natural phenlioc acids, mediate to the sounds of singing bowls, sense the cool light therapies healing the body from the inside, out.
