In our last blog article, we wrote about skincare and rehydrating during the Nelson summer. But, of course, the skin on your face is not the only area that might require some extra T, L, C. If you’ve overlooked the need for a good body treatment then read on… In this article, we’re sharing the benefits of body treatments and some of our favourites to book now!
Body Treatments – What are they? And what are their benefits?
Simply put, a body treatment is like a facial for your whole body! The scrubs we use in our most popular treatments cleanse and exfoliate the skin, allowing the subsequent massage oils to penetrate deep into your skin for intense rehydration.
Apart from leaving you with a wonderful all over glow there are other benefits to body treatments as all involve some relaxing massage.
Massage can lower your heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels. In the fast-paced world we live in it’s easy to let stress get the better of you, but keep in mind that reducing your stress levels is critical to achieving a healthier lifestyle.
If you’ve ever had a wee cat nap on the massage table, you’ll need no convincing that massage helps you get more shut-eye! Sleep is vital for your continued health and well-being. So if you’re having trouble dropping off at night why not give a body treatment a try? We like to think of them as an all-natural cure for insomnia!
Massage triggers an automatic ‘Relaxation Response’. This response manifests as a slowing down of your heart and breathing rate, helping your muscles relax. This relaxation response may also trigger an increase in the ‘happy hormones’ serotonin and dopamine.
Escape to the Islands:
If you’ve returned to work after summer and feel like you need another holiday, now is the perfect time to escape to the tropics. But the good news is you don’t need to leave Nelson! Our range of Pure Fiji Body Treatments means you can head to the Islands any time you feel like it!
Some of our favourite escapes are:
The Honey Melt
Enjoy a coconut and honey body treatment. This treatment includes a full body exfoliation and application of coconut milk and honey masque, then a neck back and shoulder massage and a heavenly head massage. Finish off with a power facial.
This treatment hydrates dry skin leaving the body with a beautiful “island glow”. The skin is gently dry brushed and warmed tropical oil is generously applied. The body is wrapped with hot stones while a warm oil scalp massage relieves tension, hydrates the skin, and detoxifies the system. You will leave with your mind renewed and your body restored.
Tropical Paradise Ritual
Enjoy a full-body exfoliation using the award-winning Pure Fiji Sugar Scrub, followed by a relaxing massage with exotic oil, your body is then enveloped with body butter, and covered to promote hydration. Finish off with Fijian scalp treatment.
