OD Wellness The Art of Reflexology

As I run around a lot for events, spend an alarmingly crazy hours on the computer and exercise regularly, my body is worn out and tense. This sponsorship came at the perfect time. I was invited by OD Wellness 鸥迪足道 to try their foot reflexology and full body massage. 
I totally love the Japanese oriental style.
They have over 70 outlets in China, Japan, Singapore and America!
Foot massage room for three! How apt if you are coming with friends.
Private room to do foot reflexology and body massage.
The masseurs names are numbers. Very interesting Japanese style adopted by OD Wellness.
My masseur is 二十一子 (21) 
Foot Cupping is a powerful combination of Biomagnetic Reflexology, Dynamic Cupping, and Plantar Fascial Release on your feet and the lower compartments of your legs.

Reflexology is the science based on reflexes on the feet, hands, ears and face which correspond to all the glands, organs and other parts of the body. It is a natural, noninvasive way of stimulating internal organs, increasing circulation and restoring bodily functions back to normal. 

When combined with Cupping, Reflexology treatments are enhanced with HACI Magnetic Acupressure Suction Cups (MASC). These Biomagnetic tools can be used for addressing joint discomfort, and Acupressure or acupuncture points, which are called in Shiatsu Tsubos. 

Reflexology can reduce stress, relieve pain, increase energy, improve circulation, cleanse the body of toxins, improve health, strengthen the immune system, and enhance creativity and productivity. Reflexology can also assist in weight loss and in overcoming addictions.

I had a foot reflexology for 60mins and full body massage for another 60mins. My masseur, 二十一子 (21), is extremely experienced and asked me if I have any particularly tensed area that she can focus on.

Shunji Matsuo revived my hair!

Rapunzel rapunzel let down your hair. And so I did. Unfortunately not the Rapunzel's silky long hair you're expecting.
My hair is naturally coarse, wavy and dry. Furthermore I went for a beach holiday last November. The sun must have zapped my hair moisture. Every hairstylist greatest nightmare.
6 steps Sherpa treatment
Sherpa products are mainly applied before and after straightening. It is a hair treatment line that not only prolong the effects of coloring, perming and straightening procedures, but also continues to replenish the hair with essential nutrients on a daily basis, resulting in healthier, shinier and manageable hair.
  1. Conditioning Mist
  2. Conditioning Milk
  3. Carrier Oil
  4. Nourishing Liquid
  5. Silk Cream
  6. Buffer Oil
The first step in rebonding is using the Sherpa conditioning mist & milk to apply onto the hair.
The conditioning mist quickly permeate inside, makes smooth & sleek hair and the conditioning milk creates tight seal around hair, makes moist hair. Exactly what my hair needs! Sherpa carrier oil works as a protection barrier, nourish and protect hair and scalp. 
Soft Rebonding Process for 15 mins using Cosmo Cream. It's a Japanese hair straightening which Shunji Matsuo has.
The nourishing liquid can repair damaged hair and enhance the robustness and elasticity. The silk cream protects hair, improves repair effect and texture continuity which makes hair glossy with a satin silky touch. The Buffer Oil inhibits hair loss and ensures lasting hair straightening style.

I feel so pampered to have two person doing my hair!
That is Zen, my personal hairstylist. Look how serious she is at work!
Neutralizer for 15 mins. It locks the hair into the new shape.
After straightening my hair, I did the Curement Herbal Hair Treatment to lock moist and shine further.
The 3 step Reacted Type Repairment System
Curement Herbal Hair Treatment is a 3 step hair treatment imported from Japan to strengthen your hair and makes each strand more resistant and less prone to breakage. 

Repair damaged part of internal and external part of hair. Amino densturation repair agent (Positive Ion Repair agent) has high ability of absorbing to the surface of hair and protects damaged part of hair.

Change condition of hair into non-ion. This helps to prevent hair of getting damaged from UV.
Moreover it makes fine silky hair and helps Amino denaturation repair agent to last longer.

Protect hair by creating two layers of non-ion barrier.
Organic raw materials of Argan oil, 18-MEA, and PPT changes hair condition into fluffy and shiny condition.

Finale touch by Zen. A trim of my horrible ends.
TADA! Soft, shiny and bouncy hair. Boing Boing. :) My hair needed A LOT of work therefore it took 5.5 hours. Straightening and hair treatment.
