What are skin tags?
Skin Tags are outer growths of the skin. There are many different types of skin tags and benign skin lesions that are cosmetically bothersome. Skin tags can take many shapes, sizes and colors, but generally they are brownish color, round and slightly asymmetrical. Small skin tags that are black or brownish in color are called dermatosa papulosa nigra, and often occur on the face and neck of asians and african-americans. Skin tags that are large fleshy tumor-like outgrowths of the skin are called acrochordons. Large, flat, wartlike growths of variable color are called seborrheic keratosis.

How are they removed? 
People usually request removal for cosmetic reasons. There are many ways to remove them, but at Klinik Qistina, we use a method that has very little pain and leaves virtually no scarring.

How many treatments will I need? 
Most people require only 1-2 treatments for complete removal.

Will they grow back? 
The answer is yes and no. Once we have removed the lesion, that specific lesion is gone. However, these types of lesions usually grow in clusters and numerous quantity. So if you are prone to skin tags, then you will probably get them again sometime in the future, perhaps in the same area or other areas as well.

Will there be any scarring? 
The procedure itself does not cause scarring. How your body responds to the treatment determines whether you will scar. This means that if you normally scar easily, then yes, scarring may be an issue. Most people heal without any adverse consequence and we have not seen any scarring in our clinic.

How long will it take to heal? 
Again, the time it takes to heal depends on your skin’s natural healing ability. Normal, healthy tissue typically heals within 3-5 days, while older, less healthy tissue can take up to two weeks to fully heal.

Is there anything special I have to do after the procedure? 
You will be given a triple antibiotic cream to apply to the area. You may wash the area gently but pat dry immediately. Keep the treated area dry to avoid infection. If a scab develops, do not pick at the scab; let it fall off naturally. If the treated area is normally covered by clothing, please wear loose cotton clothing to prevent irritation of the area while it heals. Avoid the sun by wearing sunblock or a hat.

Can I go back to work after the procedure? 
Yes, but the treated area may appear raw and red. We recommend that you take an afternoon off after this procedure. You can go back to work the following day.

Can I apply makeup after the procedure? 
You can apply makeup around the treated area but not directly on the treated area.

Some of the benefits of reflexology include its ability to stimulate nerve function, increases energy, boosts circulation, induces a deep state of relaxation, eliminates toxins, stimulates the central nervous system, prevents migraines, cleans up urinary tract conditions, speeds recovery after injury or surgery, helps relieve sleep disorders, reduces depression, and relieves pain. Furthermore, it can help ease the treatment of various cancer and even helps to soothe the pains of pregnancy, even those occurring after the baby is born.

Many of us find ourselves on our feet all day at work. Whether you work in an office, a factory, a field, a hospital, or anything in between, there is a good chance that you put a lot of weight and stress on your feet every day. The thing is, that stress can also manifest itself in the other parts of our body. It is a similar situation to back pain. For back pain, people often get massages, so it makes sense that there should also be foot massages, right? Reflexology is much more than a foot massage, but at its foundation, that’s the easiest way to describe the process. This specific area of massage therapy also includes the hands and ears, making it more of an extremity massage than a foot massage.

reflexologyReflexology is an alternative treatmentfor a wide variety of conditions, as mentioned above, and has been in use for thousands of years. The ancient Chinese and Egyptians have documented practices similar toreflexology as a treatment for certain afflictions. It involves thereflexologist applying pressure to specific areas in the hands, feet, and ears that affect certain reflex areas of the body. Imagine that there is a connection between zones of your feet and hands that represent certain areas of your body that can be adjusted or managed through these zones. A lot of the theory behind reflexology has to do with aligning your qi, but even for those who normally don’t invest much in this discipline of health, there are plenty of scientific studies that have supported the claims of reflexologists.

It is not widely accepted in the medical world, but thousands of alternative physicians around the world have been using reflexology for generations, with surprisingly positive results. If there are alternative treatments to treating more than a dozen health conditions affecting various parts of the body, isn’t it worth getting a foot massage or two? After that, you can decide for yourself. Now, let’s look a bit more into which benefits reflexology has been repeatedly linked to over the years. If you suffer from any of these health conditions, give it a shot! What do you have to lose?

Benefits of Reflexology

Nerve Function: As our bodies age, our nerve endings become less sensitive in parts of our body, particularly in our extremities. That being said, reflexology has been connected with stimulating more than 7,000 different nervous endings in a single session, thereby increasing their function and reactivity. Opening and cleaning out neural pathways can help improve functionality and flexibility of many areas around the body. Neural pathways are like muscles, so it is good to work them once in a while to keep them sharp!

Energy Levels: By aligning the functioning of various organ and muscle systems, reflexology can increase metabolism and energy creation processes within the body. If you need a boost in energy or are always feeling sluggish, perhaps a reflexology session can help put some pep back in your step!

Circulation: One of the most well-known and verified benefits of reflexology is an improvement in circulationthroughout the body, which means that blood and oxygen are being cycled through the body more effectively. This means more oxygen reaches vital organ systems, thereby optimizing their functioning and further increasing the metabolism. This also results in faster healing and re-growth of damaged cells.

Relaxation: As mentioned above, reflexology has been known to open neural pathways, and this sort of free-flowing neural activity results in a more relaxed state in the body, one of reduced stress. For this reason, reflexology can flood your system with relaxation, inducing a state of calm throughout your body and mind. In this same vein, reflexology is commonly used to cure sleep disorders. Insomnia can be a very troubling condition to suffer through, but reflexology helps your body relax and get back to its normal, healthy Circadian rhythms.

Toxin Removal: Reflexology has been shown to improve bladder function and to reduce urinary tract issues. What this means in terms of toxicity is a more efficient system of eliminating toxins and other foreign substances, thereby protecting your body from the various diseases and health conditions that can often arise from a compromised urinary system.

Nervous System Stimulation: The open neural pathways can benefit our central nervous system in a variety of ways. not only will our brain be able to handle the inputs more effectively, thereby speeding up our cognitive powers, but our physical reactions will be faster, our memory will be boosted, and generally, our entire brain will simply work better and faster.

Migraines and Headaches: Reflexology is primarily used by many people as a method of eliminating pain. As an analgesic treatment, reflexology can reduce the severity of migraines and headaches, simply by relieving tension in the muscles that can often result in these conditions. Any headaches induced by stress can also be eliminated, since stress and psychological factors often manifest in the physical symptoms of a migraine. This is actually one of the most popular applications of reflexology.

Speeds Healing: The combination of increased nerve activity and circulation, as well as the more balanced functioning of the metabolism, means that cells re-grow faster and wounds are able to heal faster. Also, the pain-relieving qualities of reflexology mean that patients feel better faster, and are more willing to start physical recovery to get back into life!

Cancer Relief: Although reflexology isn’t connected directly to curing cancer, it has been known to ease the side effects of cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy. It helps these patients get to sleep, reduce anxiety, and also reduces the chances of vomiting or other indigestion issues that are commonly experienced. The more general effects of reflexology, such as clearing neural channels and increasing circulation, can help to slow the spread of cancer and can stimulate antioxidant activity to destroy cancer cells. Research is ongoing in this field.

Pregnancy and Menstruation: Studies have shown that reflexology can be very beneficial for pregnant women, particularly in terms of labor lengths and their need for analgesics during labor and post-partum recovery time. Beyond that, due to many of the health benefits already outlined above, it can reduce the chances of post-partum depression and can also help a woman’s body heal itself faster and get back to its normal metabolic activity quickly.

Although much of the research on reflexology has been criticized or cited as unprovable, thousands of years of tradition and reports of success speak rather loudly. That being said, reflexology should be considered as a supplemental treatment to formal medical advice and treatment for the more serious conditions that have been touched on in this article.  Kick Your Feet Up and Get Healthy!



Medicinal Benefits of Hydrotherapy Water Therapies Improve Arthritis, Depression and More © Elaine Moore New studies show that hydrotherapy benefits patients rehabilitating from strokes, traumas, and other injuries as well as connective tissue diseases and asthma.Hydrotherapy refers to the medicinal use of water, including hot tubs, cold water treatments, ice packs, vapours, saunas, mineral springs, hot springs, sitz baths, wet towel applications, water exercises, and water massage. Hydrotherapy immersion waters available at spas may be rich in specific minerals or enhanced with aromatic oils or herbs. Many different forms of hydrotherapy are available. 

It’s important to use the correct type of treatment since extremes of heat or cold and could be dangerous for some people. Benefits of Hydrotherapy Hydrotherapyincreases blood circulation, including circulation of the immune system’s white blood cells. Hydrotherapy also increases the body’s production of endogenous opioid peptides, particularly endorphins. Enhanced circulation and increased endorphins strengthen the immune system, reduce inflammation, heal injured tissue, improve well-being and energize the body. Hydrotherapy also supplies fresh nutrients and oxygen to injured tissue and helps with the removal of waste products. 

In injuries alternate applications of heat and cold accelerate healing by improving blood vessel integrity and muscle tone. Heat causes peripheral (surface) blood vessels to dilate or expand. Cold causes peripheral blood vessels to constrict and drives blood back to the organs. Conditions that Benefit from Hydrotherapy Hydrotherapy aids the rehabilitation process in injuries and stroke, and it improves respiratory infections. Hydrotherapy is also known to reduce pain and inflammation in arthritis and other rheumatologic conditions. In addition, hydrotherapy reduces the effects of stress by increasing endorphin production, improves sleep, and prevents headaches. Hot tub hydrotherapy is also reported to improve blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes, lower blood pressure, and reduce symptoms in patients with multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, scoliosis, carpal tunnel syndrome and bursitis.

Recent studies also show that cold water treatments, including swimming, are potentially effective treatments for depression and also offer pain relief. In patients undergoing strength training, hydrotherapy has also been found to improve recovery times. Upper Respiratory Infections, Pneumonia In patients with upper respiratory infections, asthma, colds, influenza, bronchitis, and pneumonia, vaporizers, hot tub sessions, and saunas help to open airways and help white blood cells circulate to the affected areas, promoting healing and increasing respiration. Rheumatoid arthritis Patients with rheumatoid arthritis benefit from hot tubs, especially when used in conjunction with massage or water exercises. Hydrotherapy reduces joint pain by reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow. According to researchers at the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) at the National Institutes of Health, a small number of controlled studies have been done on hydrotherapy for rheumatoid arthritis, most based on sea-bath treatments given in Israel's Dead Sea area. Most of these studies reported beneficial results.

However, there have been quality issues noted with these studies, and it is not considered proven that thehydrotherapy itself provided the benefits for RA claimed in these studies. Larger and better studies are needed to answer this question. Study authors have noted that there could be other reasons for benefits, such as traveling to a spa, being removed from one's daily routine, relaxation, socializing, and attitude. Precautions The NCCAM reports that overall, hydrotherapy appears to be a low-risk practice for most people if common-sense precautions are taken, such as not exposing the body to too much heat or cold for extended periods, and drinking adequate fluid to prevent dehydration. However, hydrotherapy can pose risk for certain people including:  People with a condition that could be worsened by exposure to extremes of heat or cold (for example, heart disease, lung disease, circulation disorder, Raynaud's phenomenon, or chilblains)  

People with injuries that could be aggravated by strong motions from water jets  People with difficulty perceiving temperature (for example, from neuropathy, or damage to the nerves)  Women who are pregnant  People who have implanted medical devices such as pacemakers or pumps Resources:
