Unwind With One of Our Relaxing Massages

The holiday season is a joyous time, but it can also bring on a lot of stress. Between shopping, wrapping, baking, house guests, party planning, cleaning, and more, it can sometimes get a little overwhelming.  A visit to the best medical spa at the Lake of the Ozarks can help with that!  Our massage "menu" is sure to have something on the list perfect for taking care of you.

Massage is great for melting away built-up stress.  A few other benefits of massage are: enhancing sleep quality, increasing energy, improving concentration, easing pain, and enhancing immunity.  Here are the choices that we have to offer you at Serenity Medical Spa.       


One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, and improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. It is also the best option for Fibromyalgia pain.


Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in muscles and connective tissue or fascia, treating the deeper muscles of the body. It relieves constant pain due to heavy physical activity or injury. It is often quite intense as a result of deep specific work and generally done in a series of treatments.


Cupping is used in conjunction with deep tissue massage. Cupping is a method in which suction cups are used to form a vacuum that helps mobilize blood flow and promote healing. Cupping is used for a variety of things such as mayofascial release, lymphatic drainage, sports massage injury, neuromuscular dysfunctions, fibromyalgia, trigger point therapy, traumatic injuries, chronic pain, reflexology, detoxification, cellulite, scars, stretch marks, varicosities, facial treatments, TMJD, and general relaxation.

Traditional Thai Massage uses no oils or lotions, and rather than rubbing the muscles, the body is compressed, stretched, pulled and rocked. The recipient of the massage wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat on the floor. The receiver will be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which the therapist will adjust to fit each individual client.


Pre-natal massage is a great way to aid your body through the stresses of pregnancy. Receiving regular massages throughout your pregnancy helps eliminate fluid retention, stress on the lower back and feet, and provides an overall sense of well-being. Custom made cushions allow you to comfortably lay on your stomach to enjoy the full benefits of a complete back massage.


The Herbology Detox Body Wrap is performed for exfoliation and detoxification of the skin. It is a method of cocooning and exfoliating the whole body with a mixture of Chinese herbs that dissolve directly into the skin. In addition, the Biomat is used during your body treatment to stimulate and strengthen the detoxifying process (see description below). The body wrap exfoliates and conditions the skin, and draws out toxins leaving you looking and feeling your finest.


The Biomat is an amazing healing tool that is especially recommended when the goals of treatment are whole-body in nature, such as: stress and anxiety relief, general health maintenance, chronic and acute pain relief, detoxification, core body temperature support, improved circulation, lymphatic drainage, and persistent infection (like Lyme disease or other parasites). It’s most important function is to produce far infrared rays of light that penetrate deeply into the body, warming all the cells and tissues evenly throughout. These rays are produced by rows of amethyst crystals that cover the entire surface of the Biomat, in which the body experiences differently than other forms of heat.

We can discuss the pros and cons of each type of massage with you so that you receive the perfect one for what your body needs.  All of the massages at our Lake of the Ozarks medical spa are offered in a variety of lengths, beginning at 30 minutes.  One of them is bound to fit easily into your holiday schedule. 

Massage is not only a wonderful way to make it through a hectic holiday, it's also a perfect gift to give.  While you are at Serenity Medical Spa for your own treatment, pick up a few gift cards for the people on your shopping list.  Every $100 gift card purchased before Christmas Eve at 3:00 pm will give the recipient 20% off of all products and services bought with that card before March 25, 2016.  

No matter how busy it gets for you this holiday season, always remember to take a little time now and then to enjoy everything that is going on.  Make the time to take care of yourself so that you can take care of everything and everyone on your holiday lists.
