Health and Beauty by Mandy

Your health and beauty in my hands

Swedish Massage - detox, relax and rejuvenate

Releases tension & nodules in the muscle tissues. Improves muscle tone, flexibility & circulation thus removing toxins. As a method of relaxation, this type of massage also promotes emotional & mental health through well being.

Hot stone massage - Detox, relax and relieve aching muscles

The use of heated basalt stones to soften the muscles allows me to penetrate up to one and a half times deeper into the muscle than in a regular massage. Cold stones can also be used to aid healing. Physically the circulation and metabolism are stimulated and mentally the deep relaxation that such a treatment induces creates an atmosphere of healing unlike any other.

Reflexology - Treats the whole body using relaxing pressure techniques

This treatment has become very popular in recent years and like so many has a long history, with paintings found in an apothecary’s tomb from 3000 BC of their version of reflexology. Holistic treatment using pressure points in the feet. This treatment can be used to complement conventional medicine treating many serious health ailments.

ReikiNon-invasive energy healing of the mind and body

The therapist transmits universal energy to the recipient which brings about great calm and relaxation allowing the body to heal itself. This is a safe, gentle non invasive treatment of mind, body and spirit. Anybody and everybody can receive and benefit from Reiki.

Indian Head Massage

This head massage includes face, neck, shoulders and upper arms. Whilst only half an hour it stimulates the circulation, improves memory and relieves stress. The client remains fully clothed although a vest style top is helpful to allow the therapist to access the shoulders

Any kind of head or neck injury is contra-indicated.

Holistic FacialA sensory experience 

I use Temple Spa products (wholly owned British Company with products in top Spas and Boutique hotels). Although the facial includes cleanse, gentle scrub to the T zone and mask it is the massage and lymphatic drainage which is the focus of the treatment. The use of massage techniques will help to improve the texture of the skin, increase the circulation bringing blood closer to the surface to feed the skin aiding cellular activity and rejuvenation and restoring some elasticity. This, together with the award winning Temple Spa products, creates a visible difference. There are two different facials to choose from, a prescriptive facial tailored to your particular areas of concern (often combining more than one mask to target specific areas of your skin) and my Golden Deluxe Facial using all the Temple Spa Truffle products which is a great opportunity to try these award winning products.

Eyelash Extensions - Have beautiful lashes even when you wake up in the morning

Eyelash extensions extend and thicken your lashes on a semi-permanent basis using individual lashes of different lengths and thicknesses. Each lash is placed individually on the clients own lash and each lash lasts for the life of its host natural lash. Weightless and water-resistant, they allow you to exercise, swim, shower, sleep and even cry. Creates an unforgettable look for weddings and special occasions. I recommend a full set of Lashes for the initial application and touch up every 2-3 weeks. (Patch test required)

Manicure and Pedicure - For healthy and beautiful hands and feet

A regular manicure or pedicure keeps nails tidy and improves their appearance. The skin is cared for and quality products are used to promote strength and growth of the nails. I use CND Vinylux polish which, whilst not a gel, is a halfway house between a regular polish and a gel with a fabulous finish and durability. Advice on home care to maintain and enhance the treatment and keep your hands and feet healthy until your next visit.  Manicures and Pedicures are both available in regular and deluxe versions. 

Also available Foils for hands and feet

Foils on the feet can last 4-6 weeks and they DON'T chip or wear. These foils come in a variety of patterns and colours as well as plain and metallic colours. They are fitted to your nails and can be forgotten until you wish to change your look.

Foils on hands don't last as long obviously as hands are in constant use. However, the finish is hard to replicate with polish and for a special occasion they look really spectacular.

Waxing - Facial, underarm, bikini, leg

Waxing in a calm environment with the scent of essential oils and calming music ensures that this will be a pleasant experience!

You should ensure that the hair to be waxed is a minimum of around 0.75cm - 1cm so that the wax will take the hair effectively. This is normally around 10-14 days post-shaving growth for most ladies or 4-6 weeks post waxing.

Eye treatments

Our eyes are on display all the time so we need to keep them looking good.

As well as Eyelash extensions and eyebrow wax and shape I also do eyelash and eyebrow tinting. Enhance your eyes and feel gorgeous!  

Combination Treatments

Back Scrub and Massage - For a beautiful smooth and relaxed back

An invigorating scrub to remove dead skin cells and rough skin. This treatment leaves skin feeling smooth and fresh. Followed by a back massage and finished with the application of an aromatic moisturiser to penetrate deeply into the skin.  

Reflexology / Reiki

With Reflexology and Reiki I can first treat the client with Reiki creating a feeling of relaxation and inner healing before moving onto the Reflexology to target continue the whole body treatment through the pressure points of the feet.  

Pedicure / Reflexology

Combining first a mini pedicure (cuticle work, nail shape and file, dry exfoliation, moisturise and massage) followed by reflexology means double pampering. Although you have treated the outside (feet) with a pedicure we then move seamlessly from the final foot and lower leg massage into a mini reflexology session, which treats the mind, body and spirit. This is a very popular combination. 

Facial / Back Massage

What a combination! A relaxing back massage followed by a facial. This is designed to relax the face and body and rejuvenate the skin. All the benefits of each treatment apply.

Indian Head Massage / Back Massage

A great way to really sort out neck and shoulder problems with a combination of these two massages. A full Indian Head Massage followed by a back and shoulders massage.
