Back and Neck Massage

The aim of a back and neck massage is to release any physical stress that has built up in your back, shoulders and neck. The massage is given whilst sitting on a specially designed massage chair like the one in the picture below. You remain fully clothed and oil is only used on the neck area. Back and neck massage is good for relieving stress, tension and tiredness. It can also help if you are having trouble sleeping. It is a calming and relaxing treatment, which leaves people feeling that they have more energy and improved concentration.

Face Massage

The aim of face massage is to relieve any tension in the face, neck and scalp. The massage is given whilst lying on a massage couch. A small amount of oil or cream is used in this treatment. This massage can increase feelings of relaxation and improve sleep. It can also improve circulation, improve skin condition, increase energy levels and leave you feeling more positive.

 Thai Hand Massage

The aim of a hand massage is to improve circulation and relieve tension within the hands and arms. It can help to increase flexibility in the hands, fingers, wrists and arms. A hand massage is given whilst sitting on a massage chair. Oils are used in this treatment. The use of oil is also a great way of improving skin condition. A hand massage is a very relaxing and calming massage.

Fake IDs issue among British and American youth

There is a growing problem of fake ID use among young people in Britain and USA. Fake IDs are used by underage persons to buy alcohol, tobacco and in certain states of America, even legal marijuana. Fake IDs are easy to get online, due to democratization of technology, anonymous cryptocurrency payments and globalization of world economy. Youngsters often use alcohol as an escape from everyday problems. Likewise, they want to socialize in company of their older peers and visit bars, clubs and music venues with age control policy. That's where fake identification cards come to the rescue, despite known scams. However, many students do not realize that by using a fake identification document they add felony to misdemeanor and thus can irreversibly damage their future. If you developed a drinking problem or need a legal help after being caught with false ID, The Junction Youth center can provide guidance and advice (more questions answered here).
