Crystals, Chakras, Tibetan Singing bowls – Our new mindful treatment menu
Our New Organic Spa Treatment Menu
We are so excited to bring you our new organic spa treatment menu which features new and improved treatments, men’s spa experiences, new packages and a focus on relaxation and mindfulness.
It is due for release on Monday 5th June but until then, here is a bit of background into our thought process in developing our organic spa treatment menu and some new things you can expect to experience next time you come to visit Earth and Skin.
As our lives get busier and more complicated we seek a deeper connection with people around us and with the earth.
Many are turning to ancient wisdom in a search for that deeper connection and to get a break from our busy lives.
Ancient cultures around the world used crystals, herbs, essential oils, smudging, chakras and meditation and modern people are turning to these ancient beliefs in the search for simplicity, greater meaning and a higher purpose.
We see facials and body treatments as more than just a way to get glowing skin. During a treatment, you experience relaxation, silence, stillness, touch and smell. We see an opportunity to become more than just beauty therapists during your facial as we guide you into a mindful, relaxing and meditative experience.
And even more reason to focus on relaxation and mindfulness, more and more studies are showing us the massive health risks associated with emotional stress. Stress increases cortisol production which puts the body at risk of heart disease, depression, anxiety, obesity, diabetes and more. By creating a calming environment, we endeavour to provide another form of stress relief for our clients.
Here are some of the new offerings in our new organic spa treatment menu.
Jade Stone Facial Massage
The Chinese have been using Jade in their beauty regimes for centuries and jade rollers feature in museums that date back to roughly 700AD.
The benefits of using Jade as part of a massage tool include collagen stimulation, increase of absorption of serums into the skin, lymphatic drainage and helping to close the pores.
Jade is not only a beautiful stone to look at, it actually represents beauty, grace and immortality. The upper class in ancient china used jade rollers to reduce puffiness under the eye area, sooth irritated skin and brighten the complexion.
After your first massage with the therapist’s hands, we then use our smooth, cool jade stones for your second facial massage. Yes – we like to give you two facial massages in our facials.
We are so in love with the benefits of Jade massage, we have even stocked the Jade massage tools for you to use at home.
Chakra Cleansing Meditation
During this treatment extra, we guide you in meditation to cleanse your chakras.
Chakras are an ancient Indian belief in energy points that are used for healing. Ancient Indians believed that the chakras are the connection between the physical and spiritual being.
There are hundreds of chakra points but the main seven are your root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras. The seven main chakras each focus on different organs, hormones and states of mind.
If a chakra is off balance it can cause illness in the organs, hormones and state of mind in its focus area. Wellness is experienced in these areas if the chakra is balanced.
Our guided meditation helps to visualise these different chakras and draw on the energy of the earth to cleanse them, bringing them into balance and harmony.
Tibetan Singing Bowls
Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries in healing and stress management.
The theory behind the singing bowls starts with the pure sound they produce.
Let’s get a bit scientific now. Sound is just vibration going through matter. ie: when we hear a sound, it is a result of molecules vibrating. Also when we hear a sound we don’t just notice it in our ears. We feel the vibrations through our entire body.
When the singing bowl is placed over the 7 chakra points, our clients can feel the vibration throughout their body and report an immediate sense of calm and relaxation.
We feel this is the perfect prelude and conclusion to our facial and body treatments. By starting with a sense of calm, the body is more likely to respond from the benefits of our treatments.
We have chosen 7 different crystals to represent the 7 different chakras.
The crystals hold benefits that relate to the chakra it has been chosen for. They also represent the colour of the chakra they are aligned with.
We allow our client to choose the crystals they feel most drawn to at the beginning of the treatment.
These crystals are then placed over our client’s body as a way of drawing energy to the chakras that need the most focus.
Our new organic spa treatment menu is due for release on Monday 5th June.
Till then, simply give us a call to book in or chat about our new treatments.
