A Revitalising ESPA Facial

ESPA is a popular luxury skincare brand which takes care of your whole wellbeing. Opting for a soothing ESPA facial not only boosts circulation by stimulating the lymphatic vessels (giving your skin that all important healthy and youthful glow), it is also an incredibly relaxing experience.

One of our favourite stress relief spa treatments is the mindful facial.This complete holistic ESPA facial treatment  soothes and nurtures the skin using warm herbal poultices and Rose Quartz Crystals, known to reduce stress and tension in the heart. Mindfulness boasts many benefits, including lowered blood pressure, lowered heart rate, increased focus and lowered anxiety levels.

This facial incorporates mindfulness rituals such as breathing and visualisation techniques to help you feel centred and calm. After a soothing scalp massage or a hand and arm massage, emerge feeling renewed with a positive energy and a smooth, radiant complexion.

Hand reflexology is a self-massage applied to the palms, fingers and thumbs which quickly soothes and relaxes tired hand muscles – a godsend when taking a break from emails!

Deep Muscle Massage

Massage offers the ultimate tension-busting relief and a deep muscle massage targets those problem areas which harbour pent-up stress. Our massage therapists alleviate muscular stress by concentrating on areas of deep-seated tension using specialised techniques and gentle stretching movements.

Total Holistic Stressbuster

Sometimes you need to rebalance body and mind from the outside in and our total holistic stressbuster is one of our favourite signature treatments for ultimate relaxation. Body brushing and exfoliation invigorate the skin by eliminating dead skin cells while boosting circulation and the lymphatic system, leaving you with smooth and soft skin. Essential oils are then applied to nourish the skin and soothe tired, aching muscles through an aromatherapy massage.
