A Full Body Brushing is a calming treatment that has many benefits, not only to your skins aesthetic appearance, but also to your general wellbeing as it may help detoxify your body by eliminating waste from the lymphatic system. A soft brush is used to remove dead skin build-up, helping reduce cellulite and prevent premature ageing while obtaining brighter, smoother, softer looking skin. Many people use Full Body Brushing as a stand-alone stress relieving treatment, others prefer it pre massage or body wrap.
To begin we will discuss your individual concerns, expectations from the treatment, and any areas you would like given extra attention. After you remove your outer garments and make yourself comfortable on the treatment couch I will commence the Full Body Brushing using a traditional technique. A soft, natural-fibre body brush will be swept over your skin in an upward movement, towards the major lymph nodes in the body, such as the armpits and base of neck. Your input will help determine the correct level of pressure is used – deeper more intense pressure may be applied on the larger areas of the body, moving to lighter strokes with less pressure on the more delicate areas. To finish, a moisturising preparation will be lightly massaged into your skin leaving it feeling soft, supple and looking radiant.
An Exfoliating Body Polish is a spa treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin on your body leaving it feeling fresh, hydrated and soft. Not only does it help improve circulation in the skin and fight cellulite but you may use the treatment to prepare your skin for a more even spray tan. I offer a choice of scrubs and herbal oils to suit your skin type and needs, whether your desire is to wake up or wind down. This treatment is suitable as a stand-alone experience but is often enjoyed pre-massage or body wrap.
While you lay relaxed I will massage the scrub you choose across your skin, exfoliating of the outermost layer of dead skin cells. The increased blood flow to your skin throughout the treatment will encourage the production of new healthy cells. I can then wipe the product away using a warm mittens a method many people find therapeutic or if you prefer you can rinse it away in the shower. After the exfoliation your skin will be clean and fresh. Lastly I will gently massage a moisturiser into your skin leaving it feeling smooth, supple and looking radiant.
Sugar: Sugar is mixed with oils or creams and is better suited to more sensitive skin.
Salt and oil: Finely granulated salt is mixed with essential, moisturising oil.
Herbal: I can mix a herbal oil with the exfoliating scrub, such as rosemary, lavender or frankincense depending on your skin type and the experience you require.
A Full Body Wrap is a bundle of beautifully relaxing spa treatments designed to cleanse and nourish the body, relax the mind and rejuvenate the soul. As well as the stress relieving 'Body Wrap' the experience includes a Dry Brushing, a light Massage using warm oils, and a gentle Facial. Body Wraps are fantastic for helping with many skin conditions, muscle and joint pain along with general wellbeing. We will discuss your specific needs in detail and I will plan the treatment accordingly.
This is a luxurious experience from start to finish, to begin you will be asked to lay face down on a freshly heated under blanket; this is both for your comfort and to aid the absorption of the products more effectively. The first stage of this deeply relaxing process is to dry brush your body; this is to aid the removal of dead skin cells. Next I will apply your own personal prescription of warm oils; the fragrance of oil will correlate with the sensation you desire. The oils are applied through light massage stokes paying particular attention to any problem areas. You will then turn over and have the treatment repeated to the front of your body. Next you will be wrapped in a plastic sheet and covered with blankets allowing the oils time to work deep into your skin. Whilst you are under the blankets you will enjoy a lovely acupressure facial massage, then for the remainder of the treatment you will be left alone to relax and drift away, leaving you feeling refreshed, with soft, hydrated skin.
For a more intense experience I can add a layer of Dead Sea Mud to your full body following the application of the warm oil. The Dead Sea Mud is high in minerals, including sodium, iron, and calcium, so it nourishes the skin beautifully. It also may improve the skin's elasticity and has even been known to help relieve muscle pain. You will be required to shower after the relaxation time, and a body moisturising preparation will be applied to complete the process. This will add £10 to the final cost and increase the treatment time up to 30 minutes.
Come and experience an exclusive Face The World massage, take time to enjoy a unique, memorable and wonderfully indulgent pamper session with me.
The Moroccan Sacred Candlelight Back Massage is a fabulous and healing experience. It begins with the client choosing and lighting their “sacred” handmade massage candle and thinking of a person or an area of their life that they would like blessed or be shown guidance towards, and so the intention is set. The chosen candle which will melt at a low temperature and become a luxury massage medium which can be safely poured onto the client’s back without the risk of burning the skin, will be representing of the North African “Guedra Blessing” – know to impart blessings and good energy to the community.
Indulge in a sensational aromatic experience, as the fragrance of the candle burns and fills the air, I will use a moisturising fair trade Moroccan black beldi soap, high in rich oleic acid and vitamin E, to cleanse your skin, then gently exfoliate using genuine “hammam spa” kessa mitts, which will not only encourage the removal of dead skin cells but also reduce toxins and increase circulation and blood flow, aiding new skin growth.
After washing away, the soap with warm hand mitts, the melted massage candle is applied. The heat relieves tension in both your muscles and mind, experience pure peace and tranquillity as it is massaged in, and leave with glowing, moisture-rich, pampered skin!
Shea Butter has moisturising properties leaving skin silky smooth. It has also been proven to reduce inflammation.
As sweet almond oil has hypoallergenic properties it allows you to cleanse your skin, relieve eczema and keep your skin soft with less risk of an allergic reaction. It is also brilliant to relieve any lingering muscle aches you may have.
To create a single drop of Rose Otto oil it requires 60 roses! This makes this ingredient hard to come by and expensive to manufacture. However, the benefits of using this oil are priceless! It can help fight depression, reduce inflammation and is an anti-spasmodic.
“The Guedra is a night-time ritual, around a fire under the light of the moon or inside one of the larger tents by fire or candlelight. For this treatment, we focus on the light from a candle and use the traditional Djembe drum to represent the heartbeat in the bespoke music.” (Face The World)
A Back Facial is a relaxing skin treatment that is beneficial for both men and women, and often popular with teenagers. Not only does it help eliminate skin problems, it exfoliates and deeply cleanses a hard to reach area. The procedure is much the same as a regular Facial, although unlike the delicate skin on your face, your back is less sensitive, which is why I use specifically formulated products, that are tough enough to remove impurities but also made to hydrate and moisturise the skin. With a massage incorporated you will leave feeling refreshed and re-energized, looking, and feeling amazing.
This 60-minute treatment is begun with is a skin analysis, next a 'dry brushing' which may draw out any toxins and help remove dead skin cells. After a double deep cleanse and exfoliation to unclog pores, I will use a classic method to gently steam the skin. Next is a luxurious 15-minute massage, targeting problem areas and melting any tension away. A prescriptive mask will be applied, followed by extraction if required, and finally to end the treatment a toner and moisturiser will be applied to your now nourished and glowing skin.
Hopi Ear Candles are an ancient and natural therapy, handed down by many civilisations. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but much later on for a purely physical basis. The practice we see today reached the modern world via the North America Hopi Indians. Ear candles originally would have been made with herbs and plant extracts and are still made today on the basis of old traditional methods originating from the Hopi Indians. With so many healing qualities this treatment has become universally popular! I will be using the finest natural organic ingredients of beeswax, untreated cotton and essential oils to pamper an treat any problems.
Hopi Ear Candling is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, used to offer calming benefits from many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat areas. The candles work on the ''chimney principle'', drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. The rising air inside the ear sets up vibrations which gently massages the eardrum. This can help regulate the pressures involved inside the ear. The flow of air within the Ear Candle creates a circulation of concentrated vapour. This is soothing and protects the irritated areas. Most deposits or impurities are carried away through the candle “chimney", some of them may be found in the lower section of the candle after removal from the ear or some wax will work its way up to the surface 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. The Hopi Ear Candle treatment is a deeply relaxing and soothing experience.
You will be asked to lie in a comfortable position, relax and remain fairly still. The candle is then gently placed into the auditory canal, where it is lit and held in a vertical position. My hands will keep the candle steady at all times, and your hair and face will be protected with a cloth. You will then experience the pleasant crackling sound and a warm comfortable feeling as the candle burns. The candle is allowed to burn down until it reaches a specific marker indicated on its side; it is then taken away while you remain laying on your side for a few moments. The process is then repeated on the other ear. To finish the treatment you will experience a lovely, calming and relaxing lymphatic drainage massage to both the ears and face concentrating on sinus areas.
If you are not sure, please either call me to discuss, or speak with your GP.
There are some guidelines that can be followed with regard to the number of Hopi treatments a person can have to achieve positive results. For a problem that has come on suddenly, for example, a cold or blocked nose, it is safe to have treatments up to twice a day for the first two days and then three or four more over the next ten days. For long term problems, such as hearing loss or tinnitus, Hopi treatments can be given three times in the first week, twice in the second week and once in the third week. A Hopi treatment once a month can be beneficial for preventing problems and a continued maintenance regime.
