The holistic facial treatments

Md formulations

Md formulation products are made with glycolic acid and pH balanced to be gentle. Glycolic acid is a form of Alpha Hydroxy Acid and is found naturally in sugar cane. This product and other specialised ingredients help exfoliate dead skin cells and increase moisturisation of your skin. As the dry outer skin layer is exfoliated, fine lines and wrinkles become less noticeable, skin tones become balanced, and younger, healthier, smoother looking skin is revealed.

Md formulations can be used at home in conjunction with your usual skin products or for out standing results the extensive range can be used alone. For ultimate result we recommend the salon treatments, which offer a stronger peel and of course have the relaxation and pampering in our tranquil surroundings.

The ultimate experience of the combined effects of smell and touch is in a professional aromatherapy treatment.

All our aromatherapy treatments are administered using original essential oils and products. Aromatherapy is use to treat a whole range of conditions and is believed to work on people both physically and psychologically.

The first part of the theory is that when you smell an essential oil, it triggers your limbic system, the part of the brain that controls your emotions and stores and retrieves learned memories, and relaxes you. The other part of the theory is that the essential oils ore absorbed through the skin, and have medicinal properties which act on the cause of the problem. Just some of the conditions aromatherapy is use to treat are:

» Anxiety, stress or insomnia
» Muscular aches and pains
» Headaches
» Asthma
» Eczema
» Digestive problems
» Menstrual or menopausal problems

Frequently Asked Questions

Waxing treatments

Q:What is hot wax?

A: Hot wax is the best hair removal treatment on the market made from beeswax with added resins and oils, it’s completely natural. The wax is applied to the skin thickly then left to set and removed quickly. By applying the hot wax directly onto the skin it opens the pores, ensuring that the hair is removed with minimal discomfort. It’s especially good for coarse hair and is much less painful that strip waxing.

Q: How long should I leave between wax treatments?

A: Normally 4-6 weeks but it depends on the individual, most people visit the salon more often in the summer as hair grows quicker in the heat.

Q: Do I need to take my underwear off?

A: If you are having a Brazilian or Hollywood bikini wax you will need to remove underwear, so that the technician can get to the area without restrictions giving you the best results.
