Body Sugaring

It seems that more people are getting a “bikini wax” than ever before, wanting to look good for those summer days on the beach. Most women and some men want to strip away their natural hair to maintain what many perceive as the “sleek and clean” look. However, a new kind of treatment is on the rise, trying to outstrip the waxing business – body sugaring.


This all natural treatment for hair removal in Columbus, Ohio exfoliates dead skin, plus it removes hair by the root. Sean’s Massage Center offers this treatment. The technique uses a pasty sugar (plus lemon and water) mixture in place of wax and spreads it onto the designated area to be cleaned. Then the substance is pulled off, removing hair and dead skin. It’s effective on any area of the body that can be treated with waxing. Prices for Body Sugaring range from $16 for a simple chin treatment to $93 for the full leg and bikini treatment.

“Does it hurt less than waxing?” is one of the common questions. Well, you’re stripping patches of hair off your body. Science has not yet developed a completely painless way to do that. However, the technique removes hair in the direction of its growth so the discomfort is usually less severe than standard waxing. Licensed estheticians recommend that hair be at least ¼-inch long to receive the most effective results from sugaring. On the other hand, they warn that anyone using Accutane, Retin A or Renova should not receive sugaring services.

Sean McGrath of Sean’s Massage Center is trained in a variety of techniques, and his treatments are part of the OSU health benefits. Using multiple techniques is very effective in getting rid of the client’s discomfort, and even speeding up the healing process. In addition to Body Sugaring, some of the specialties offered at the Center are, reflexology, couples massages, prenatal massages, and (of course) the traditional Swedish massages.


Much of Western “alternative medicine” stems from the Swedish massage. This technique uses light strokes with light to medium pressure which effectively eases muscle tension and stress. When administered by a professional it will encourage blood flow (therefore, oxygen flow) to encourage healing and allow the release of endorphins.


The Swedish massage was developed in the latter 18th century by Per Henrik Ling, a Swedish native whose innovative physical therapy was introduced to America in the mid-19th century. Ling’s innovative technique was based on Euro-American medical knowledge of human physiology.


Massages as a form of healing have been around since about 500 years before the birth of Christ, but the medical theories at that time (like some present Eastern practices) are believed to have been more holistic, focusing on the physical, spiritual, and the mental state of the patient.
