What to expect?
Feeling burnt out? If you’ve been running on empty, an aromatherapy massage could be just what you need to recharge your batteries. Massages are usually pretty relaxing, but it’s addition of essential oils (the aromatherapy part) that makes this treatment truly transformative. Essential oils can do everything from energise to de-stress or reinvigorate, so your therapist will have a proper consultation with you before you start to assess where you’re at emotionally, as well as checking in on any aches and pains. From there, your therapist can create exactly the right blend of essential oils (plus something called a ‘carrier’ oil, which stops the super-potent essential oils irritating your skin) for your needs and your massage can begin.
How does it work?
The power of essential oils is twofold. Firstly, through inhalation, you’ll be relaxed by their lovely calming smell, but also, they penetrate the skin and move quickly into your bloodstream, loosening any muscle pains and working on any suppressed tension you’ve got. Through the physical effects of the oil on your body, and the smells travelling through your super-sensitive nasal passage to your brain to help relax you emotionally, you can imagine why some people manage to totally conk out during an aromatherapy massage.

After an hour to an hour and a half, you’ll be ready to drift on out – despite how much you might not want to. All those oils can be (conversely) a little dehydrating internally, so make sure to drink plenty of water afterwards to keep your hydration levels topped up.
Good To Know
Aromatherapy massage can be particularly good for sleep problems, persistent period pains, digestive woes and eczema, but it’s not advised in pregnancy or for anyone with kidney problems, due to the potency of the essential oils.
Hot Stone Massage
If you’re looking for a stress-busting treatment designed to relax and unwind, there’s nothing better than a hot stone massage. Popular for its ability to soothe both mind and body, the hot stone massage uses a combination of gentle oils and natural stones in a bid to ease muscle tension, improve circulation and promote wellbeing. Bliss has never sounded so good…
Hot stone massage is an ancient practice dating back thousands of years, and involves the use of flat, heated stones (basalt stones) that your massage therapist places on key spots across your body. These special areas are said to control your body’s energy flow and when recharged can help to rebalance body and soul. Why not experience the healing benefits of this deeply therapeutic treatment.
Good To Know
While a hot stone massage is more complicated than your regular shoulder rub, the process is actually quite simple. Your massage treatment will have heated, carefully selected stones at a comfortable temperature. For anyone worried about overheating, fear not! The stones will be warmed to a pleasant and entirely bearable heat.
What To Expect?
As you lie down on the bed your therapist applies light oil to your skin (lavender and grape seed are a favourites), before placing a towel between you and the stones. Once you’ve fully relaxed and have got used to the warm sensation, your therapist will gently glide the stones over your body, stopping every now and again to rest them on different areas of your body for extra benefits on those problem areas. From the moment you close your eyes, you’ll feel those everyday stresses simply melting away. We’re feeling more tranquil just thinking about it!
Is It For Me
Stone massage therapy is a great pick-me-up if you’re feeling burnt out. It’s deeply relaxing, and with a typical treatment lasting around 90 minutes for a full body, one session will leave you feeling fully refreshed and ready to go in no time. What’s more, hot stone massage is thought to be helpful in treating all sorts of muscular injuries, aches and pains – and can even benefit people who suffer from multiple sclerosis or fibromyalgia. Who knew a massage could be so genius?
Whether you’re off on a holiday or just want the luxury of extra-smooth skin, booking in for a full body exfoliation is the perfect pampering treatment to combat dry, dull skin and leave you with a serious glow.
Our salt and oil scrub will and your skin extra soft, smooth and touchable. Lasting for around 30 minutes to 40 minutes, your therapist will start by applying the deeply exfoliating scrub onto your skin in circular motions, clearing clogged pores and removing those pesky dead skin cells that can leave your skin looking dull.
Once the body scrub has been applied all over, your therapist will wipe it away with a damp cloth, revealing your new, perfectly polished body. A highly moisturising body cream is them applied to finish.
Apart from luxuriously smooth skin, the benefits of a full body scrub down are plentiful, and it’s known to be great for breathing life back into problem pores and dry, lifeless skin. Though beware if you suffer from eczema or psoriasis, as the exfoliant can be a bit too abrasive for sensitive skin.
And if you’re looking to really push the boat out, a body exfoliation can often be combined with other pampering treatments such as a facial or massage.
