In our spa we are currently using the Record-618 Intense Pulse Light (IPL™) machine for hair removal and other skin rejuvenation treatments. This new generation IPL™ technology is based on natural biological mechanisms, is painless, and is fast and gentle to the skin. Unlike other IPL machines and lasers where the energy is scattered in the skin, the Record-618 IPL concentrates the bulk of light energy in a geometrical plane positioned under the skin surface. Therefore, IPL requires a relatively low temperature which allows deep penetration of the light into the skin with no damage to the skin’s surface. The low light energy supplied to cells causes cell proliferation while stimulating collagen and elastic tissue synthesis thus rejuvenating the skin. This treatment has shown in our spa astonishing results in treating acne, rosacea, hyper pigmentation and skin discolouration and broken capillaries, and, of course it is very effective in hair removal.

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that works usually on the feet to help heal the whole person, not just the prevailing symptoms. It is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance.
The most concrete evidence of the practice of reflexology in ancient culture was the discovery of the wall-painting (below) depicting the practice of hand and foot reflexology in the tomb of Ankhmahor at Saqqara, which is also known as the Physician’s tomb. This Egyptian wall painting is dated at the 6th dynasty, about 2330 B.C.. Prior to this discovery, it was widely believed that reflexology had ancient origins and frequent conjecture was made about its relationship to and development alongside the ancient Oriental practices of shiatsu and acupuncture.
Benefits of Reflexology
While reflexology does not claim to diagnose or cure illnesses, it has been shown to be effective in alleviating numerous disorders, including:
Back and neck pain
Specifically, there are four principal benefits to regular reflexology treatments:
Aromatherapy, a word which derives from ‘aroma’ meaning fragrance or smell and ‘therapy’ meaning treatment.
The term ‘aromatherapie” was coined by the French chemist, Rene Maurice Gattefosse in 1928. Aromatherapy, reputed to be at least 6000 years old, is based on the ancient principle that the spirit and the body should be in harmony. This healing art combines the aromatic essence of plants, known as essential oils, with a relaxing therapeutic massage, bath, inhalation, cream or prepared compress to restore a state of well-being. While essential oils are considered safe to use, they are very powerful, highly concentrated substances which should be treated with a great deal of respect. Always consult a professional before using any oil. Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should not use essential oils without consultation.Aromatherapy creates balance of body, mind and spirit. Each essential oil has a natural, medicinal property that stimulates in a specific way, therefore certain oils are used for treating certain conditions. Here are just a few of the therapeutic oils and their effects.
Chamomile: Soothing and harmonizing
Eucalyptus:Balancing and stimulating
Lavender: Calming and healing
Lemon: Cleansing and stimulating
Orange: Calming and energizing
Aromatherapy is beneficial in so many ways. It can provide a boost when you need to be alert or promote calmness during tense and stressful situations. Increasing attention and memory, it also helps to maintain focus and energy levels through a long work-day or when battling lack of sleep or jet lag. Best of all, there is no susceptibility to the highs and lows associated with common quick fixes such as caffeine, alcohol, sugar or drug consumption.

This wonderful massage therapy has its roots far back as the ancient world. Today, hot stone therapy is becoming widely known for its therapeutic and deep relaxing benefits.
The technique involves placing water-heated smooth stones of various sizes on key points on the body or face. The resulting deep massage and sensation of warmth and comfort is not to be missed.
The hot stone experience can relieve pain; promote harmony and balance within the body. The addition of aromatherapy and soft music to this therapy has an amazing effect on mood and heightens feelings of well-being. Relax and enjoy the wonderful sense of stillness. Remember the therapy is all about you and the restorative benefits it has to offer.
