Our Beauty Treatments

The Swedish massage uses a range of massage techniques called Effleurage (smooth relaxing strokes), Petrissage (kneading), Friction (deep pressure movement), and Tapotement (light percussion movements tapping the body to increase circulation).

This massage includes the back, neck, shoulders, arms and hands, legs and feet, face and head and the whole experience will last a total of 60 minutes.

The 30 minute back, neck and shoulder massage is the perfect choice for a quick stress and knot release fix!

Many people carry their tension in their back, neck and shoulders and obviously due to the large volumes of muscles, this is also a key area for stiffness after exercise.

A good solid 30 minute workout along these key muscle groups will leave you feeling knot free and a good deal happier and relaxed!

The 45 minute massage will cover the areas you feel your body needs help with.

This massage is the same as a 30 minute massage however your therapist will work more on the area needed.

After a good 45 min massage your body will be feeling knot free and a good deal happier and relaxed.

Reflexology is a powerful rebalancing form of massage using specialist compression techniques.

It is a deeply relaxing and as a result very popular holistic treatment. It's based on the principles that reflex points on the soles, tops and sides of the foot are connected to corresponding areas throughout the body. In this way the feet can be seen as a map of the body. Reflexology massage is great for stress related problems, re-energising and pain relief and is very helpful with chronic problems e.g back pain, migraines, hormonal imbalances, digestive problems and is generally a great aid to overall rebalancing of the body. It has proven very popular with clients undergoing cancer treatment as well as an alternative to body massage during pregnancy.

Reflexology is used to treat many of the same symptoms that acupuncture is used to treat, including anxiety, headaches, hormone imbalances and digestive problems.

  • After an initial consultation, your reflexologist plans the session according to your symptoms.
  • As you sit or lie comfortably on the treatment table, your reflexologist warms up your feet.
  • Then precise pressure is applied to specific areas of the feet that correspond to certain areas of the body.
  • After the treatment, your therapist may give you a self-care plan or recommend a follow-up appointment if needed.

Reflexology is an instantly relaxing and soothing therapy that benefits anyone who suffers from stress and anxiety.

Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage to release spree that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. it aims to rebalance your body's energies.

Indian head massage is a time-tested and invigorating treatment for stress and tension.

Lycon Hot Waxes are a low temperature formula, they shrink-wrap and remove hair as short as 1mm, they are very pliable and painless for most.

Hot wax provides a superior finish to your wax as it removes more stubborn hairs. Hot wax is more gentle on the skin and reduces any discomfort providing a virtually pain-free waxing treatment.

Hot wax is applied in a think layer and left to set. Then the layer of wax is peeled off without any need for a strip. If you want to be totally hairless from hip to hip, it's time for a Hollywood wax.

If you want to get rid of that hard-to-reach hair, there is no substitute for the perfect Hollywood wax.

If you want down there to be smooth and clean of hair, without feeling too bare, Brazilian is the way to go.

The shape of the hair at the front is totally up to you, but the landing strip is a classic option.

Other popular shapes include a tiny triangle and a postage stamp, but feel free to ask for whatever style you prefer.

Ideal for a first time waxer, the bikini line touch up is exactly as the name would suggest, a tidy up around the edges.

A good option if you want to keep things on the natural side, but prefer a little more definition.

Hair is removed from anywhere outside of a modest panty line - so around the tops of thighs and any hair above your knickers.

Similarly to Bikini the full bikini wax is still nice 'n' natural, but with a little more of a neaten up around the top and sides of your pubes.

This is usually referred to as a standard bikini line on most salon menus. You can keep your knickers on when you have this one done.

Full leg wax Half leg (upper or lower) Three-Quarter leg wax Full Arm wax Half Arm Wax Strip wax

Lycon Hot wax is applied to the underarm and then removed leaving you smooth and hair free.

Non-Strip wax is better suited to sensitive areas and shorter coarse hairs producing amazing results and keeping you hair free for longer.

Waxing is quick, easy and lasts longer than shaving or removal creams (up to 4 weeks).

The hair is removed from the root not cut at the skin surface as with shaving, so comes back smooth not stubbly. Many also find that once you have been waxing for a while hair comes back finer and patchy in some areas.

Pin-straight eyelashes can go unnoticed.

lash lift opens up your eyes and adds length and body to your lashes.

A lash lift and tint is the perfect treatment for anyone who wants stunning, fluttering, unforgettable lashes. Lashus provides consistent uplifting, volume-enhancing lashes, and can create classic, natural look or dramatic enhancements.

The lift works with the client’s natural lashes to create the appearance of longer, thicker and more visible lashes.

By straightening the natural lashes at the root, the treatment instantly gives extra volume, definition and length.

To finish, a deep intense tint is applied to both the upper and lower lashes.

Lashus has a gentle formula and can last up to eight weeks.

Eyelash tinting is for anyone who wants an eye-opening mascara effect that lasts.

An eyelash tint consists of adding a special dye to your eyelashes, giving you weeks of dark, full lashes without the assistance of mascara.

You recline in a salon chair and a technician applies the dye to your lashes while you keep your eyes closed for about 10 minutes.

It’s a quick, relatively painless process.

If you want fuller, well-defined brows that last from three to five weeks, book in for a wax and tint.

Eyebrow tinting is for anyone who wants fuller looking brows that last.

Brow tinting is the application of semi-permanent dye to enhance, shape and define your brows. Brow tinting works to darken and enhance the brows, creating the appearance of brows that are fuller, thicker and darker.
