Beneficial for any skin type, a facial is great for deeply cleansing and moisturising the face. Whether you’re prone to acne, dry skin or uneven skin tone, there’s a facial treatment to help it. Depending on your beautician, you may have a consultation with them beforehand to assess your skin type and texture. This will allow for an amazing facial tailored to you. Facial treatments can last anywhere between 15 and 90 minutes, depending on the extensiveness of the treatment—so be sure to allow yourself time for what you want!
Whether you want a relaxing muscle rub-down after a solid workout, or are feeling the tightness from sitting in the office all week, a massage will be ideal for loosening up those knots. If you’ve never had a professional massage before, it’s best to start with Swedish massage therapy. This method uses long, smooth strokes and kneading on the upper layers of muscle, making it very gentle and relaxing. For added heat to relieve tight muscles, opt for a hot stone massage. Deep-tissue massages target chronically tight or painful muscles and are usually used to help recover from injury, strain or postural problems.

Usually paired with another treatment, aromatherapy uses essential, natural oils as a form of rejuvenation for the mind, body and spirit. The volatile plant oils used in aromatherapy can help a range of ailments, such as stress, arthritis, colds, flus and many more. Aromatherapy is based on the concpet that certain aromas induce strong responses in the body, including deep relaxation. Pair this treatment with a massage for the ultimate rejuvenation experience.
