Treatment Information and Advice

Deep Tissue Massage

What is a Deep Tissue Massage?

This is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body. Deep Tissue Massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during the massage depending on what condition the back is in to start with.

Why have a Deep Tissue Massage?

It is beneficial to your health and feels good. When muscles are stressed they block oxygen, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. It helps loosen muscle tissues to become more supple, releases toxins from muscles and gets blood and oxygen circulating properly. To help eliminate these toxins completely it is important to drink plenty of fresh water before and after a massage and to stay clear of caffeine and alcohol for at least 24-48 hours before and after a massage as both of these would block the toxins from being released any further after a massage.

A deep tissue massage will leave you feeling relaxed and will help to soothe your muscles. It is both corrective and therapeutic.

Aftercare Advice for all types of Massage

Please try to drink plenty of fresh water after any type of massage and for the next 24-48 hours or more and stay clear of caffeine and alcohol to allow your body to flush out toxins which will help your massage continue working for you.

During this process you may experience a 'Healing Crisis' this is something that can usually happen if you had any tension or knots in your back which was worked on to help ease any pain and stiffness that you had been experiencing prior to your massage.

A healing crisis is your bodies way of healing its self, it goes by the saying “Everything has got to get worse before it gets better".  If you experience this it will last between 1-3 days and can make your back feel sore during its process, but the more fresh water you drink the better you will feel. If you do not experience a healing crisis it means your back is in a good condition which may mean you have a good posture and/or don't allow your self to get too stressed to allow tension to build up in your back.

After Care Advice for Manicures and Pedicures

Please allow a good hour for nail polish to dry and harden completely after your treatment. Moisturising your hands and feet regularly can help keep them in good condition. TOP TIP: If you apply a thick layer of a water based cream on your hands and feet at night then put on cotton gloves and cotton socks it will lock in the moisturising cream, warm up your hands and feet allowing your pores to open and sock up the moisture. Revealing beautifully soft hands and feet by morning.

After Care Advice for Hair Removal

Stay out of the sun and don't use sunbeds for 24-48 hours after hair removal, don't use any perfumed products or apply any make-up for at least 12-24 hours on the treated area.

After Care Advice for an Eye Lash Tint

Try not to rub your eyes directly after having an eye lash tint, just in case there is any residue of the dye left. Your eye lash tint will last 6 weeks until the roots start to grow through. If you would like to build your lashes to appear longer and thicker it is recommend that you have them tinted every three to four weeks.

After Care Advice for an Eyebrow Tint

Keep your eyebrows well moisturised to allow the tint to last longer, over cleansing of the eyebrows will fade the tint.

After Care Advice for Facials

Avoid over exposure to the sun or sunbeds after having a facial. To gain full benefit of your facial try to leave the creams used at the end of your facial on your skin for that day, this will give them time to soak into your skin completely. Make-up can be applied directly after a facial but it is recommended to allow your skin to breathe to gain full benefit of you facial. Evening appointments are available to make this easier for you.

After Care Advice for Make-up Application

Try not to touch your face too much and your make-up will last longer for you. After eating you may need to top up your lip stick or lip gloss.
