Agera® Rx Skin Peels
Description:

 This is a beautifully gentle but highly effective skin peel that reveals smoother skin and it can be tailored to suit your skin precisely and is ideal for the face, neck, hands décolletage and body.  Chemical peel treatments progressively soften lines and wrinkles and fade acne scars and age spots.  Unlike other skin peels, this is a non-glycolic peel with 10 years of medical research supporting its use to treat acne, ageing and pigmentation.  The peel penetrates deep into the skin using the unique combination of Vitamin C, salicylic acid, lactic acid and citric acids.  The skin is cleansed and an AGERA® Rx skin peel is applied which is activated by cold water.  This peel provides results without shedding, redness or irritation and requires no downtime so you may continue with the rest of your day.

AGERA® Rx anti-ageing peels stimulate cells (fibroblasts) deep within the skin to promote collagen and elastin production for firmer, thicker, younger looking skin and help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother and more radiant appearance.  For optimal results,  a series of AGERA® Rx anti-ageing peels may be combined with microdermabrasion to help smooth out the surface of the skin.  Combining the powerful Growth Factor Peptides, anti-oxidants and retinols available exclusively to AGERA® Rx anti-ageing products, help to control the skin’s internal ageing process while restoring and maintaining its thickness and resilience.  Replacing these declining levels of growth factor peptides is the key to reversing and preventing the ageing process in the skin,

AGERA® Rx acne peels rapidly bring acne under control by reducing inflammation, decreasing bacteria and preventing new acne eruptions.  Early intervention and regular use of AGERA® Rx acne products  ensures rapid control of  acne symptoms and is essential to minimise the risk of future scarring.  These revolutionary peels also reduce blocked pores and redness associated with acne conditions.  For optimal results, a series of AGERA® Rx acne peels may be required to assist diminishing existing acne scars.

AGERA® Rx pigmentation control peels offer advanced solutions for pigmentation by penetrating the skin’s pigment cells to gently and effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted pigmentation and discolouration and improve the clarity and colour of the skins for a more even skin tone.

What are AGERA® Rx skin peels used to treat?

Various different combinations of AGERA® Rx skin peels are used to treat acne, acne scarring, ageing skin, sun damaged skin, skin with areas of increased pigmentation and to refresh the skin.

Why are AGERA® Rx peels revolutionary?

AGERA® Rx, after 10 years of medical research, has developed a combination of water-free peeling materials that can penetrate as deeply into the skin as the reticular dermis without causing any significant irritation.  By adding cold water to the treatment, the peel is immediately activated.  This is distinct from peels such as those that contain glycolic, which simply burn their way down through the upper layers.  AGERA® Rx peels do not contain glycolic and uses a combination of ascorbic acid (vitamin C), lactic acid (AHA), citric acid (PHA), salicylic acid (BHA) which can be applied in a multi-layering process.

Why is a course recommended?

AGERA® Rx peels are designed to be gentle to start with and then are gradually increased in strength as the skin becomes acceptant of the procedure.  Several peels usually on a weekly basis are required to see the desired effect.

What is chemical peeling for?

This simple, safe but effective treatment is used to reverse the visible signs of ageing.  It can be used on all skin types, to treat acne, acne scarring, sun spots, sun damage, blotchy skin, age spots, lines and wrinkles.  Today, with the public increasing interest in rejuvenating skin and slowing the effects of the ageing process, chemical peeling has emerged as an exciting supplement to a total skin care programme.

How does an AGERA® Rx skin peel work?

Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance if the skin.  In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin which causes it to separate and eventually peel off.  The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled and of even tone and colour.  The peel and treatment protocols can be tailored to suit the condition to be treated.  The anti-ageing peel stimulates collagen production which will help to eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles and leave you with a firmer, smoother and more radiant appearance.   The pigmentation peel penetrates deep into the skin to reduce the appearance of discolouration leaving you with a more even skin tone.

What areas can be treated with AGERA® Rx Skin Peel?

The treatment is usually carried out on the face but can be carried out on the back and upper chest.

Who should not use AGERA® Rx Skin Peels?

With a peel you are advised not to use any prescriptive topical creams for one week prior to being treated.  It is also recommended that you do not carry out any facial waxing 10 days prior to treatment and you will not be treated if you are sunburnt.

How long does the AGERA® Rx Skin Peel take?

Treatment usually takes approximately 30 minutes but it may be 40 minutes including the consultation.

How many treatments will I need?

The chemical peeling treatment protocol takes place over a four week period, with one treatment per week being performed.

Does chemical peeling hurt?

During the procedure, most clients experience a warm to somewhat hot sensation which last for about 5 to 10 minutes, followed by a slight stinging sensation which soon disappears.

Do I need to take special precautions before and after my AGERA® Rx Skin Peel treatment?

It is recommended that you use an SPF 25 sun cream after treatments.

Are there any possible side-effects?

Yes, there is a risk of developing a temporary or permanent colour change, scarring and re-activation of cold sores.  Most of these complications are preventable and can be effectively managed.

Aromatherapy
Description:

One of the best ways to relax and ease stiff, tired muscles is to receive an aromatherapy massage.

This is a combination of the therapeutic benefits of a calming massage with the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy essential oils. Aromatherapy is a technique that uses your body's sense of smell to help boost your mood, relieve stress, energise and encourage better health. It also works well by absorbing essential oils into your skin and blood stream - this is where the 'massage' comes in! The massage itself consists or primarily slow, gentle, rhythmic flowing connective strokes called effleurage. This helps to increase the nourishment and oxygen to the tissues easing muscular aches and pains and helping with fatigue.

Massage and aromatherapy also stimulates the lymphatic system which assists your body naturally releasing toxins, thus an aromatherapy massage de-stresses the body, mind and spirit.

Massage benefits are:

Relaxed state of alertness
Reduced mental stress
Relief of muscle tension and stiffness
Greater joint flexibility
Reduced levels of anxiety
Reduced blood pressure

How does it work?

During your massage essential oils absorbed by the skin. Many skin conditions can be improved by the anti-inflammatory properties of certain essential oils. The aromatherapy massage oils used depends on your particular ailment or the outcome that you are trying to achieve. Essential oil scents are also inhaled through the nose, travel across the olfactory nerves and into the limbic system which is the area of the brain that controls your mood, memories and ability to learn. When the limbic system is stimulated it releases endorphins neurotransmitters and other feel-good factors.

The effects of Aromatherapy

Massage therapy has been shown to be highly beneficial in reducing the level of harmful stress hormones in the body. It stimulates cell circulation which increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to your cells. Certain massage techniques can reduce acute and chronic muscular pain and tension by helping to release and lengthen contracted muscles.

Botox®
Description:

Muscle relaxing injections to reduce lines and wrinkles

Frown lines, worry lines and crow’s feet are caused by smiling, laughing or frowning – and the more expressive you are, the deeper the lines will become! As we get older our skin’s repair mechanism slows and so the problem accelerates. Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX®) is a very effective non-surgical way to treat the condition.

What is BOTOX®?

It is a purified protein produced by the clostridium bacterium and is used in extremely small amounts to relax dynamic wrinkles caused by the contraction of muscles.

Is it safe?

Treatment is widespread in medical practice and in trained medical hands is proven to be safe and effective. BOTOX® is used in much higher doses to treat migraines and excessive sweating disorders than in cosmetic procedures. Treatment is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Very rarely a temporary drooping of the eyelid may occur but this usually resolves quickly. Occasionally some asymmetry may develop, but this is easily rectified with further small injections.

How does BOTOX® work?

BOTOX® attaches itself to the nerves that control the muscles and prevents the nerve from sending its chemical signal to the muscle, so in turn preventing the muscles from contracting. The result of this temporary paralysis of the dynamic facial muscles that are responsible for wrinkles is a reducing or eliminating of the lines when we frown or smile. Because the movement of the muscle has been reduced and the creases are not being continually formed, the skin can gradually recover causing the lines to soften over time.

Does it hurt?

An anaesthetic cream is applied before treatment to numb the area so discomfort is minimal. There may be a mild stinging sensation during treatment which uses a very fine needle and tiny amounts of BOTOX® are injected into specific areas according to the placement of lines and the severity of the condition, and a transient headache has occasionally been reported following treatment.

What areas can be treated?

The most common areas treated are the frown lines between the brows, the forehead and crows feet around the eyes.

What can be expected following treatment?

Effects can take 3 – 10 days to become visible and will generally last 3 to 6 months depending on the treatment and individual response. Effects may last longer with repeat treatments.

Are there any side effects?

No serious side effects have been reported when used for cosmetic treatments. Immediately after treatment there may be a little swelling or redness, but this usually subsides within a few hours at most. Occasionally there may be some bruising at the injection sites.

What precautions should be followed after a treatment?

Don’t touch the treated area for 4 – 6 hours after treatment
Don’t lie down for 4 – 6 hours after treatment
Don’t drink alcohol for 4 – 6 hours after treatment
Don’t do vigorous exercise for 4 – 6 hours after treatment
Exercise the muscles by relaxing and contracting the area treated, as this helps the BOTOX® to reach the target muscles
Facials and massage treatments should be avoided for 3 days after treatment

Is this treatment for everyone?

Men and women who would like a more relaxed appearance will enjoy the benefits of BOTOX®. There are very few restrictions, but treatment will not be given in pregnancy, breastfeeding and certain neurological conditions.

Chakra Balancing
Description:

Chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning wheel and if it were possible for us to see the chakras we would observe a wheel of energy continuously rotating. The chakras commence at the base of the spine and culminating at the top of the head and though they are anchored in the spinal column they are located on the front and back of the body and work through it.

Each chakra resonates with a particular frequency of vibration and are an integral part of vibrational medicine. Chakras are balanced by inviting them back to their natural state of vibration and frequency using colour, crystals and gems, light, sound, aromatherapy and touch. By stimulating the senses in a favourable manner, the nervous system and equally the chakras are balanced.

The root or first chakra rotates at the slowest speed whilst the crown or seventh chakra rotates at the highest speed. Each chakra is stimulated by its own and complimentary colour. The chakra colours are the colours of the rainbow - red, yellow, orange, green, blue, indigo and violet. The size and brightness of the wheels varies with individual development, physical condition, energy levels, problems or stress levels.

However, if there is an imbalance in the chakras or if the energies are blocked, the basic life force will be slowed down leaving one feeling listless, tired, out of sorts or depressed. Not only will physical bodily functions be affected but also problems may manifest whilst the thought processes and the mind may also be affected leading to negativity fear or doubt, for example, captivating the individual.

A constant balance between the chakras promotes health and a sense of well-being. If the chakras open to much a person could directly short-circuit themselves with too much universal energy going through the body. On the other hand, if the chakras are closed this does not permit the universal energy to flow through them properly which may also lead to dilemmas.

Many people respond to unpleasant experiences by blocking their feelings and halting a vital quantity of their natural energy flow which in turn impinges the augmenting and development of the chakras. If one blocks whatever experience one is having one in turn blocks one's chakras and these ultimately become irregular. If the chakras are operating routinely each will be open and spinning clockwise to metabolise the appropriate energies required from the universal energy field.

At SERENE SOJOURNS we can help you bring a calming and composed sense to you thus enabling you to live your life to the full, be more energetic about your hopes, dreams and your future, be more self-confident, have more pleasure in things that you fulfill - but most importantly - have a much more happier and meaningful life and SERENE SOJOURNS can assist you with every step that you take on your new journey.

Colour Therapy
Description:

Colour Therapy is a subtle non-invasive therapy making use of the therapy energy contained within the visible rays of colour. Colour therapists introduce the optimum balance of colour energies into the human body in order to promote harmony and balance between the body, mind and spirit. Only when this balance occurs are we able to work towards a state of perfect health. Colour Therapy is a complementary therapy, which works well with many other methods of treatments.

Colour Therapy is now used extensively as a complementary treatment for many physical, emotional and mental problems. These include ailments such as asthma, arthritis, nervous and mental health problems, depression, eating disorders, skin diseases, digestive ailments, blood and circulation problems, fevers, rheumatism, shock and for the relief of pain.

Colours affect moods and emotions. Colour Therapy uses this sensitivity to colour to identify and correct any imbalances in the body's internal energy patterns that might lead to emotional or physical ill health. Therapists believe that each organ and body system has its own characteristic vibrational energy, and disorders can be healed by applying colour of the corresponding vibrational energy, either to the whole body or to the organ concerned.

For example, the red spectrum affects our physical energies. It is stimulating and warming. Blues are cooling and cleansing, affecting our spiritual energies. The yellow shades serve to bridge them, affecting our mental energies. The three colours together provide opportunities for healing our body, mind, and spirit.

You do not have to be ill to benefit from Colour Therapy, as we are all striving towards wholeness and perfect health. Colour Therapy encourages us to take personal responsibility for our lives and to use the healing power within ourselves. Colours are to balance energy, aid creativity and learning, release blocks and alleviate physical, emotional and mental conditions. Colour Therapy helps people understand their needs for certain colours, and show them how to use these colours for healing, health, relaxation, inspiration and protection.

Crystal Therapy
Description:

Crystal therapy uses the gentle art of touch with crystal stones to relax and enhance mental, spiritual, emotional and physical healing. The therapy will help you regain the inner balance and spiritual awareness. It is based on the belief that certain crystals and gems possess positive energies that can affect imbalances in human energy fields and thus promote health and well-being. Crystals can also be used to amplify and direct the energy of the healer so that physical and emotional energy blockages can be released.

What happens during a crystal therapy treatment?

During a Crystal Therapy session, crystals of specific colour, pattern, or type will be placed around the body or on specific chakras (energy points) to facilitate the healing:

  • Root Chakra - jasper, garnet, onyx, rubies
  • Second Chakra (womb) - hematite, moonstone
  • Third Chakra (solar plexus) - citrine, amber, topaz
  • Fourth Chakra (heart) - rose quartz, Chinese fluorite
  • Fifth Chakra (throat) - aquamarine, turquoise
  • Sixth Chakra (third eye) - sapphire, turquoise, amethyst
  • Seventh Chakra (crown) - clear quartz or amethyst

 

Who will benefit from crystal therapy?

  • Burn out and stress
  • Tension
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches

 

Or emotional or spiritual difficulties such as:

  • Depression
  • Mood Swings

Holistic Meditation
Description:

Meditation allows you to quieten and relax your mind by using techniques to promote healing, connect your mind, body and spirit, release limitations, focus on goals and find inner peace and tranquility.

The word meditation is utilised in describing several different uses of the mind, from contemplation, concentration to devotion. The word itself probably derives from the same root as Latin mederi to heal, and meditation can certainly be looked on as a healing process emotionally, mentally and physically. The simplest definition of meditation is 'the right use of the mind or positive thinking'.

Most forms of meditation employ two main practices, concentration exercises, often using an object such as a flower or candle (also known as creative visualisation) and the repetition of a mantra (a mantra is a sacred phase, word or sound which is repeated constantly either aloud, silently or in thoughts only. It literally means, 'man' - mind and 'tra' - to free, so that which frees the mind).

Guided meditation or creative visualisation is about learning to use your natural creative imagination in a more conscious way, a technique to create what you truly want.

Holistic meditation can help you to:

  • reduce stress and tension
  • promote healing increase a sense of personal identity
  • facilitate emotionally expression
  • improve mood
  • increase inner peace and tranquility
  • increase creativity and energy

SERENE SOJOURNS underpins this traditional discipline which has been recognised for both its spiritual and restorative powers and we can help you by including meditation holistically into the routines of your life thus re-energising you and helping you attain a positive new mindset for the present and the future.

Holistic Pain Management
Description:

Holistic pain management is about seeing and treating pain not only as a physical condition but as an emotional and spiritual one. One of the main concepts of holistic medicine is the belief that the individual is seen as a whole, with body, mind and spirit being one. All these aspects are completely interwoven and what affects one aspect will have a direct effect upon all others. Therefore, if pain is caused by physical injury, the experience of the pain will reverberate throughout the entire body, mind and spirit. Because of this interrelation, the healing of the physical injury will not always produce full cessation of the pain across all the other levels.

As more and more people seek to choose to take more responsibility for their holistic health rather than developing a full reliance on the medical system, we, as a society, are becoming more and more aware that we can influence and therefore improve our health by analysing our lifestyle choices. By addressing the negative aspects found within ourselves, by improving our diet and nutrition, our levels of exercise, how we cope with stress and how we choose to live our lives generally, we can improve our health.

Whilst medical science moves at a fast and furious pace with regard to finding and prescribing treatments for the negative human conditions, the Western world is becoming increasingly aware of the older more traditional healing therapies and methods which can help prevent, treat or cure illness. These may often be used alongside or as a replacement to orthodox medicine.

Holistic Relaxation Techniques
Description:

These techniques are skills that can be learned with practice and because they work they have proven their worth. Some of SERENE SOJOURNS' relaxation techniques include:

YOGA
Yoga offers a holistic approach to body, mind and spirit, which can provide us with the mechanism to cope with challenges in our daily lives.

VISUALISATION
Visualisation is an outward projection of the mind and has its foundation in desires and emotions. Using your imagination, you can stimulate emotions which in turn can register new attitudes in the mind. It can be a candid communication with the profound levels of the mind, accommodating a powerful prominence for enhancements in your behaviour patterns, attitudes and all-round confidence.

MEDITATION
This traditional discipline has been recognised for both its spiritual and restorative powers. By including meditation holistically into the routines of your life it can re-energise you and help you attain a positive new mindset for the present and the future.

BREATHING TECHNIQUES
Breathing harnesses its powers and transforms into a natural and effective stress relief technique. When we breathe, many of us do not breathe correctly or deeply but by changing our habits and breathing properly, this action can reduce anxiety, tension and stress.

At SERENE SOJOURNS we affirm that the interconnection between body, soul and mind is plain and simple breathing which in turn can aid managing stress and stress- related symptoms.

SERENE SOJOURNS can assist you bring balance to your life through physical disciplines, visualisations, affirmations and breathing techniques.

Holistic Remedial Massage
Description:

Remedial massage is a holistic treatment. That is to say, it works for the whole body and to improve total health, not just for the part being treated. A remedial massage therapist has studied anatomy, physiology, related pathology and the techniques of Swedish massage, heat and cold therapies, Kinesthetics and many other related fields.

Remedial massage therapy is a hands-on technique that gently massages the muscle tissue. Because it works deeper than regular relaxing massage, its effects are usually deeper and longer lasting. Remedial massage can be used to prevent injury and also to help heal injury. Covering both muscular and skeletal dysfunctions, include fibrositis, spondylitis, arthritis, frozen shoulder, muscular cramps, whiplash, muscular atrophy etc.

Trigger points cause symptoms such as pain (often referred pain, which can be as intense as pain from any other cause), muscle stiffness, weakness, nausea and dizziness. Trigger points are tiny contractions of muscle fibres in a very small band of muscle tissue. Contraction takes place within the microscopic sarcomere of a muscle fibre, and a trigger point exists when over stimulated sarcomere become unable to release their contracted state. The therapist will feel for these knots (which rang in size from a pinhead to a pea), lying along a taut band of muscle fibres. They may be caused by accidents, falls, strains, postural stress and muscle over-use. They can lie latent within the muscle indefinitely (and don't actively refer pain), but they can also be activated by very little stress or strain. They are extremely painful when pressed upon and are easily treated once found.

The therapist will trace the pain or injury back to the original area of damage, and use specialised massage techniques to break down the scar tissue and encourage it to reform in a way that encourages mobility. Massage will also encourage and support the body's own healing and repair mechanisms.

The Benefits of Remedial Massage

Short term effects are:

  • to increase the blood flow, both in the area being massaged and generally
  • to increase the lymphatic flow to and from the area treated, reducing pain, swelling and inflammation and speeding up the body's own healing process
  • to relieve stress and tension, factors which are known to hinder healing or slow it down, and cause problems of their own
  • to reduce muscle tension, thereby improving the blood supply to an area
  • to increase muscle tone

Long term effects are:

  • improved general circulation
  • balance of the muscles and joints, leading to a better state of health
  • breaking down of scar or fibrous tissue, restoring elasticity to the joints
  • greater mobility within the joints of the body
  • overall relief of stress
  • greater immunity to further injuries of the same area

Hopi Ear Candling
Description:

Hopi Ear Candling also known as 'Thermal Auricular Therapy' is an extremely comforting, relaxing and beneficial treatment. The candle acts as a chimney and the vibration of the air rising up through the candle and the natural movement of the flame gently massages the eardrum. A warm swirling current of air and a light vacuum occurs which 'dries up' any moisture.

Hopi Ear Candling is a calming, relaxing and comforting treatment and the candles have plenty of benefits as they are made of natural ingredients which have healing and soothing properties. The ear candles are made from beeswax, honey extracts, sage, chamomile and woven cotton.

SERENE SOJOURNS aids you to experience this unique therapy as the warm herbal vapours act physically on the ear, as well as the inhalation of the fragrance give both physiological and psychological benefits. They help relax you and ease stress, leading to a positive state of mind.

Hot Stone Massage
Description:

There's a lot of pressure that comes along with everyday life. Pressure to perform at work, maintain healthy relationships and spend enough quality time with family and friends. All of your commitments leave you little time to relax and take a breather, which all adds up to a lot of tension that you carry around with you. This not only leaves you feeling tired and stressed, but has the potential to make you more prone to illness.

However, there is a particular kind of pressure that is good for you. To many people, massage may be something reserved for a special occasion or only when a little 'pampering' is in order. But as massage has entered the mainstream and more long-term studies have been performed on the benefits, more and more people are turning to massage to relieve mental and physical stress and to alleviate symptoms of some common conditions - not just as a way to feel good once in a while. Massage is the ideal way to effectively release the build-up of tension in your muscles, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and ready for anything.

Hot Stone Massage is a unique variant of massage therapy that uses heated stones as part of the massage in order to release tension from the body and calm the nervous system. It is a type of massage that has been practiced for many years by many cultures, the Mayan, Native Americans and Hawaiians. Ayurveda, an ancient form of healing tradition details a universal source of life that affects everything, which is called prana.

In meditation and healing rituals the hands were used to heal and also other implements believed to be imbued with this life force including stones and crystals. Stones from riverbeds were warmed and placed along the energy centres of the body to relax muscles and 'extract' tension and pain from the body. The stones were believed to balance and ground the body, harmonising the essential connection between the mind and the body. The heat and weight of the stones also mentally and physically focus the body on the massage, allowing the recipient to be more present and perceptive.

Hot stone massage can help us feel more peaceful and balanced - and ready to handle the distress of modern living - allow SERENE SOJOURNS to introduce you to this wonderful experience.

Indian Face Massage
Description:

Indian Face Massage (also termed Facial Rejuvenation) is a relaxing, natural face-lift utilising massage techniques. This massage is designed to be a gentle non-invasive route to remain looking younger and works fundamentally by freeing constrictions both within the facial muscles and connective tissue. Without realising, tensions may build up within our facial muscles from the stresses of daily life. Often too, it can be easy for certain thoughts and emotions to become habitual, securing themselves into expressions on our faces which can remain for the duration of a lifetime. Under these conditions muscles contract, inhibiting freedom of expression which in turn can cause ageing and the formation of wrinkles as the face looses muscle tone and elasticity and commences to sag.

Indian Face Massage has been established for more than 5,000 years. Its benefits are to eliminate stress and excess toxins and purify the body, which it will naturally strengthen or rejuvenate to maintain strength, improve in skin tone, promote better blood circulation, relieve eye strain, promote improved lymphatic circulation, reduce headaches and aid sinus congestion.

Some of the oils used in Indian Face Massage consist of basil which can be used for the treatment of asthma, digestive problems and also is good for the skin. Basil essential oil benefits stroke victims whilst rosemary facilitates the circulation. Cinnamon can nourish those with headaches and lower back pain. Using frankincense for the 6th chakra aids in calming the body. Citrus oils assists in refreshing and helping to cheer and sandalwood ameliorates the memory.

At SERENE SOJOURNS we treat the whole person, not just the symptoms or condition and are confident you will enjoy your massage.

Insight Meditation
Description:

People have practiced some form of meditation or quieting the mind since the beginning of recorded history. Every major world religion (and many lesser-known spiritual traditions) includes a contemplative component.

Vipassana (pronounced vuh-pah-suhn-a), the style of meditation used in this therapy can be traced directly back to the way the Buddha himself practiced, and is common to all Buddhist traditions. It is characterised by concentration and mindfulness. Vispassana meditation is designed to quiet the mind and refine our awareness, so that we can experience the truth of our lives directly with a minimum of distraction and obscuration.

The practice of Buddhist meditation can said to be non-aesthetic – that is, not dependent on belief in an external entity, Buddhism simply reflects back to us that the degree of our own liberation is dependent on the extent of our own effort. So the Buddha's style of meditation is compatible with any spiritual path, whether theistic or non-theistic. The practice of mindful awareness is an invaluable tool to anyone seeking spiritual awakening, mental clarity or peace of mind.

Medical Microdermabrasion
Description:

Medical microdermabrasion is based on the very same techniques as microdermabrasion* - but uses a much higher powered machine. Because of this extra power, medical microdermabrasion machines are only allowed in clinics/establishments with suitably qualified aesthetics practitioners (surgeons, doctors, dentists and nurses). Medical microdermabrasion treatments are administered by Catherine, a qualified aesthetics practitioner, at our Glasgow city centre clinic. All other aesthetics treatments are administered by Catherine at Inverkip.

This non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure immediately restores smoother looking skin, and is a virtually painless alternative to chemical peels. A versatile procedure, it can be combined with other treatments to help achieve the desired results and is used in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, acne prone skin, blackheads, whiteheads, superficial age spots and hyper-pigmentation as well as to assist with oily, dry or patchy skin.

Treatment involves the passing of a hand-held probe over the skin which delivers a highly controlled stream of medical grade crystals that exfoliate the skin, the debris being immediately vacuumed away. The process improves the texture and colour of the skin, revealing the healthy underlying skin cells, and promoting the production of collagen that thickens the skin and improves its resistance to ageing.

The results are instant and medical microdermabrasion usually does not require preparation prior to treatment. The treatment is well-accepted for use by men and women and has the additional benefit of allowing the client to return to normal activities straight away.


*Microdermabrasion is a technique usually performed in beauty salons by beauty therapists. It is relatively safe because it is a very superficial treatment using machines that are of low power and are therefore unlikely to cause damage if used incorrectly.
 

 

Paraffin Wax Treatments
Description:

Paraffin waxing is a luxurious treatment that is intended to moisturise and soften the skin. Paraffin wax is not like ‘warm’ or ‘hot’ wax that is used for hair removal on the face and body. That type of wax is much more viscous and bonds to the skin. Paraffin wax is a softer wax because of the paraffin oil component and as it’s a soft wax, it melts at a lower temperature, so this means that the skin can be treated with the wax without causing burning or blistering. 

During paraffin wax treatments, we paint the melted wax onto the client’s hands or feet several times to create a thick layer. The hands or feet are then wrapped in plastic, or some other non-absorbent material and left to 'soak' in the layer of wax for up to 30 minutes.

Paraffin wax treatments are particular popular in the winter because they are warming and they provide a great deal of moisture to dry and cracked skin. During paraffin wax treatments, the skin is bathed in warmth, which helps the pores to open and the skin soften.

Once the skin has been allowed to soak in the wax and the layer has hardened, it can be pulled off in one solid piece and because the wax is soft and contains oil, it does not become very stiff and does not adhere to the skin. After the paraffin wax treatment the skin is left slick and soft.

The use of paraffin wax therapy can be traced all the way back to the Roman Empire. In those ancient times, the Romans would pour hot waxes on the body in preparation for massage therapy. Later the French embraced paraffin therapy by melting paraffin wax and spreading it on wounds to accelerate healing. In World War I, the British army used paraffin wax therapy as a protocol to treat orthopaedic disorders in military hospitals. In modern times, paraffin therapy is quite common and widely used to aid in the treatment of conditions such as the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Eczema
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Fibrositis
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Overworked/Fatigued Muscles
  • Psoriasis
  • Scar Tissue
  • Stiff Joints
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow

Paraffin therapy is also widely used in the treatment of sports related injuries and other conditions where heat therapy and exercise therapy are needed. One of the overlooked benefits of paraffin therapy is that it soothes and moisturizes the skin, opens pores, increases circulation, and promotes a sense of calm in the client.

Paraffin has been laboratory tested to be hygienically safe to use. It is colourless, tasteless, odourless, and extremely heavy in molecular structure. Since paraffin is heavy in molecular weight, it increases the blood supply to the area being treated and traps moisture from underlying layers of the skin, resulting in rejuvenated and nourished skin. Paraffin therapy reduces pain and stiffness around joints by removing excess fluid from surrounding tissue while providing lubrication.

Paraffin treatments are not recommended for people with the following conditions:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Varicose Veins

Who can benefit from reflexology?

Reflexology is suitable for all ages and may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. After having completed a course of reflexology treatments for a specific condition many people find it beneficial to maintain health and well-being. Whilst many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress at the same time many doctors consultants and other healthcare professionals recognise reflexology as a well-established respected and effective therapy.

With ever-increasing levels of stress it is important for people take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs. Reflexology helps us to cope on a physical mental ad emotional level thereby encouraging us to heal and maintain in all areas of our lives.

Reflexology should be avoided if you are in the first three months of pregnancy or if you have a thrombosis or embolism.

How Reflexology works

Crystalline deposits of waste products, usually calcium and uric acid accumulate around nerve endings on the foot and often feel crunchy. A swelling or ‘squidginess’ indicates possible problems in the related zone. Working a point helps crush the crystals and stimulate circulation so that the lymph system can more easily eliminate them. This helps to detoxify the body.

Reflexology aids relaxation which helps balance emotions, is an antidote to stress and promotes restful sleep. As Reflexology relaxes the muscles in the body this also helps to improve blood flow to the organs and thus increases healthy circulation. Reflexology stimulates the nervous system via nerve endings which encourages the opening of neural pathways allowing messages to travel unimpeded so that all the organs and systems of the body may be able to work together effectively.

Stimulating the pituitary gland releases endomorphins, the natural pain-killing hormone the body has, and this will induce a feeling of well-being and calm. Reflexology has many health benefits and a key benefit is the lowering of stress levels because stress management is pivotal in maintaining overall good health.

After the Treatment

Following a treatment most people have a feeling of well-being and increased relaxation; sometimes after a treatment you may feel tearful or have a temporary worsening of an ailment. This is a perfectly normal occurrence that will pass as this is the body allowing itself time to heal and is known as the ‘healing crisis’. To gain maximum benefit from your treatment, try to rest afterwards – this helps your body’s natural healing process. Drink plenty of water after a treatment as this will help to flush away toxins and impurities.

Swedish Massage
Description:

What is a Swedish Massage?
Swedish Massage has been around since the 1800's and is one of the most common massages performed in the United Kingdom. The term 'Swedish Massage' refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage was developed in the 1700's by a Swedish doctor named Per Henrik Ling. Swedish Massage is the foundation for other types of massage such as Deep Tissue Massage, Aromatherapy massage, Sports massage and some other western massage styles.

What is the purpose of Swedish Massage?
The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish Massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. Swedish massage uses firm yet gentle pressure and is great for easing tension, stress relief, pain relief, relaxing the body, promoting health and well-being, warming up muscle tissue for deeper work, oxygenating tissues, helping muscles throw off accumulated waste toxins, ease breathing, and improve circulation. Swedish massage helps stretch muscles, tendons and ligaments, increasing flexibility and range of motion.
