QUIZ: Which 5-Element Spa Treatment is Right for You?

QUIZ Which 5Element Spa Treatment is Right for You
SHARE
We all wish we could maintain perfect health throughout every season of our life. But if you’re are out of balance with nature your body rhythms could suffer. Understanding how the Five Elements work to harmonize your life could put your body back in sync.

Just as the earth finds balance in the daily rhythms of light and dark and with the changing seasons, your body is affected by different natural elements and cycles, which affect your overall physical and emotional health.

When it comes to the Five Elements, the ultimate goal is balance. Each element, like fire and water, generates and regulates the others. A harmonious relationship with all of the natural elements is essential to our health and wellbeing.

The demands and stresses of daily life often distance us from nature, leaving little time to reveal and nurture our body’s inborn ability to regenerate and restore our vital life force or Qi. This disharmony within the body, over time, can result in disease.

Taking time out to pamper yourself is a crucial part of your wellness. Harmonizing your body with the Five Elements is key for a balanced mind, heart and body. Being in harmony with the seasons and your body’s timeline will help you regain balance and restore your vitality.

Let the Five Elements reveal your “natural” age and determine which spa treatment is best for you. Take the quiz then choose a spa treatment specific to the natural element you want to harmonize for a rejuvenating, revitalizing treat!

Spa treatment for METAL - Magnetic Massage
Magnet therapy helps improve circulation, move Qi throughout your meridians and offers a relaxing energy massage.
