Body Specific Treatments:
Back, face and scalp treatment with hot stones (2 hours)
This treatment targets the classic areas of stress from headaches, neck pain and shoulder tension and the effect these have on the skin. A cleansing back exfoliation is followed by a relaxing back massage using hot volcanic stones and aromatic oils to melt away tension. A personalised ESPA Facial tailored to skincare needs with a stress-relieving scalp massage completes this treatment. The body feels totally rejuvenated, skin revitalised and muscles soothed.
Pre and postnatal treatment (1 hour 20 minutes)
This nurturing massage has been carefully designed for pregnant and nursing mothers. This soothing massage allows one to unwind and feel comforted during this special time and alleviates backache, headache, shoulder and neck tension caused by muscle tightness and shifts in posture. Ultimately, this treatment reduces fatigue and improves skin elasticity. A course of nine treatments is recommended following the first trimester and for three months after pregnancy.
Relaxing back treatment (55 minutes)
A relaxing massage to ease muscular tension and problematic skin on the back, neck and shoulders. The back is body-brushed and exfoliated to help stimulate circulation and cell renewal before an application of deeply cleansing marine mud is applied to help purify and calm the skin. Lower legs and feet receive a therapeutic relaxing massage while the mask takes effect. Finally soothe away tension from the back with a calming Aromatherapy Massage.
Salt and oil scrub (25 minutes)
This exceptional skin-softening body exfoliation combines sea salts with essential oils to leave the skin nourished, smooth and supple. This scrub is perfect as a stand-alone treatment or in preparation for an Aromatherapy Massage.
Anti-cellulite hip and thigh treatment (55 minutes)
An effective massage targeting areas prone to cellulite, fluid retention and uneven skin texture. The body is exfoliated using a special blend of seaweed, salt and oil and removed using iced mitts to help tone and firm the skin. A brisk and powerful detoxifying massage follows, stimulating the lymphatic system to improve the appearance of the skin. Relevant reflex zones and pressure points on the feet are activated to leave one feeling totally revitalised and refreshed. A course of six treatments is recommended to maximise the effects.
