It’s all too easy to overindulge come the long weekend. With the party season complete, why not take a break and make some time for a detox? Cleansing the body of toxins and focusing in on your health and wellbeing, will offer extra energy and vitality in the long run. Whether you have a few hours or the whole three days, there’s an option for everybody.
What better way to detox than indulge in 150 minutes’ worth of pampering? Beginning with a salt scrub sourced from the Dead Sea, the skin is polished and left feeling silky smooth. Working with hot stones to encourage lymphatic drainage, toxins are massaged out of the body by your knowledgeable therapist. Fresh seaweed which has been sourced from the depths of the Atlantic, is then carefully wrapped around the body. Working again to bring toxins to the surface, the wrap also aids in improving skin elasticity, regeneration, reducing cellulite and improving body contouring. During the wrap, your knowledgeable therapist applies hand and foot masks before beginning a pro-youth facial. Also incorporating oceanic vitamins and minerals, results are instant meaning you leave the luxurious setting of the spa with an even more luxurious glow.
