What’s unique about our Day Spa?
What makes us unique?
Here at Face Body Day Spa, we pride ourselves not only on creating an amazing experience for our clients, but also our range of unique services, that are a little different to what you would normally find elsewhere. One of those is our incredible Hydrotherapy Spa. It’s one of our most popular services and has so many wonderful, holistic benefits. Today we wanted to share some of these with you.
So what is a Hydrotherapy Spa?
Did you know that the healing benefits of water have been appreciated for centuries and in ancient times, people used the curing powers of natural hot springs to help them with every day aliments? Nowadays, we probably just appreciate a hot, scented bubble bath, which eases those niggling aches and pains, as we enjoy the health benefits of relaxation.
Hydrotherapy simply means the use of water in a therapeutic way, and includes the use of both warm and cold water to treat the body. When you immerse yourself in amongst warm water, you receive a number of health benefits:
Your body temperature increases and you perspire. The skin’s pores open, blood vessels are diluted and blood is diverted to the skin — hence the flushed, rosy-faced look. This sweat process encourages the body’s toxic wastes to be eliminated via the open pores.
Hydrotherapy also uses water massage via water jets directed onto your body. This type of massage increases blood circulation and delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the soft tissues. The lymphatic system is also activated giving a generous boost to the immune system and massage on cellulite prone areas, helps to break down the fatty deposits and lessen its appearance.
During a hydrotherapy treatment, another health benefit is in the release of endorphins — the body’s natural hormones, which give us a sense of well being. They also block pain and boost the immune system. It’s one of the best ways to give yourself a natural shot of happiness.
And let’s not forget the mental benefits achieved during a hydrotherapy session, including stress relief and a spring clean of the mind which helps you to sleep well. Self care is such an important tool for everyone. When we take time out to relax our body and mind is rejuvenated and revitalised, allowing us to concentrate better, feel less brain fog and reduce stress and anxiety.
Our Hydrotherapy Spa has serval functions, including the jets & bubbles. This is our most popular option for clients and it’s so relaxing. Used with many treatments here in the Spa, but our most common option is before a body massage to relax the muscles and allow a deeper rejuvenation process to take place during your massage. You will find your body will feel absolutely incredible by combining the two treatments together.
To enjoy our Hydrotherapy Spa you can choose a couple of options. You can enjoy the spa on it’s own or you can incorporate one of our divine experiences with it. These are:
Cleopatra Milk Hydrotherapy Spa
The Cleopatra milk bath smells absolutely divine and is added into the water as a therapy for the skin, nourishing and boosting the skin’s vitality. Luxuriously smooth and creamy, this hydrating coconut milk soak contains a bounty of nutrients essential to the support and good health of your skin. Fresh coconut milk with a blend of coconut, dilo, macadamia and sikeci nut oils rejuvenate, nourish and rehydrate dry skin leaving it supple, smooth and revitalised. You’ll feel like you’re drifting away to a tropical paradise.
Lagoon Pebble Hydrotherapy Spa
Lagoon pebble, a truly invigorating beauty treatment, uses the Lagoon Water Bath Pebbles to combine the relaxing power of their active ingredients with the pleasure of a lagoon-blue bath and aquatic aromas reminiscent of the atolls of the Polynesian islands. A genuine feeling of well-being and relaxation in this lagoon-blue effervescent bath. Leaving your skin delicately scented.
So whether you’re wanting to take your mind and body on a journey or you just want to take your massage to the next level, why not add in a 30minute Hydrotherapy session to your next visit? We know you’ll absolutely love it!
The second most popular service which is a little different is our Waterfall Spa
Our Waterfall Spa treatment is like no other. It will take you on a sensory experience to really enable you to relax and unwind. Our Vichy Shower, which is used to perform this treatment, has seven adjustable shower jets to caress your body under an invigorating waterfall. Your therapist adjusts the pattern, placement and temperature of the jets to achieve whole-body water massage treatment. When all 16 jets are on, there is litres of water every minute flowing over your body, producing in many people a sensation of floating on water.
The effect of so much water movement on your skin is to increase the blood circulation, hydrate the skin and soothe the nervous system, enabling your body to balance and your muscles to relax.
During the Vichy Shower treatment, you lie on a padded table, with the shower jets above you. This water massage treatment is particularly effective following a body scrub or wrap, to circulate the recently absorbed products through your system, producing enhanced benefits.
Specific benefits from regular Vichy Shower treatments include: Increasing the benefits of products recently absorbed by your skin Reducing toxins and waste, improving your elimination system Stimulating the skin drawing blood to the surface Boosting your immune system Hydrating your body through your skin, improving skin and muscle tone Reducing your stress response through skin nerve stimulation
