How do you know what massage you need?

chi massageDo you love to have a Massage?

Do you know what massage to ask for when you book?

 If you prefer a certain pressure tell the reception staff so they can book the appropriate spa Therapist or tell reception staff the reason you need a massage, when your’e booking they can help you chose the best massage for your needs.

 These are all very important things staff need to know for you to receive the BEST MASSAGE for you.

Did you know that having a medium to lighter pressure massage is far more beneficial for stress, fluid retention, anxiety, lack of energy,  feeling tired, run down or over worked.

Majority of people think they need a firm massage or it is a waste of time, when in actual fact it really depends on what you are having a massage for as to the style and pressure to achieve results.

Firm massage is best suited to athletes or those that suffer from tight areas that cause imbalances. Firm massage is also beneficial when you have areas of congested muscle as it can release the tension however it depends on what has caused this tension and how often you have a massage.

Killer Heels

Are you a victim of high heels, ballet flats or thongs (that’s Australian for flip-flops)?

Two minute daily skin care routine

Just Wondering…….

Do you get confused about how, why & when to apply your skin care products?

We find this is a common question, so here are the basics of what order to use skin products in a 2 minute routine!

I always have people say ‘ you have great skin Katrina, what do you use’  and I say ‘ thanks, good genetics helps and I own a day spa.’  The truth is I am committed to a simple, quick skin routine with good products, (twice a day for 2 minutes) and I have facials every couple of months.  I always apply my skin care to face then the décolletage as this area is exposed to the elements and where signs of ageing and lack of care shows.
