The Gold & Diamond Skin Revival
Face, Décolletage & Hands (60mins): €110
Gold is the symbol for inner light, the sun and vital energy, while Diamonds are known to be the door to the terrestrial unknown. The healing and anti-aging properties of Diamond and Gold combined create a force that will stimulate and balance your skin, well-being, and remove toxins from the body with their healing abilities. This rejuvenating treatment begins with a cleansing and toning of the face followed by a rose-hip oil massage to the neck, décolletage and shoulders. Dead facial skin will then be removed with an exfoliator followed by a Precious Oil Mask containing gold flakes. As the mask releases its anti-ageing properties you will be pampered with a revitalising hand and arm treatment beginning with a massage of the forearm and hands, the Precious Oil Mask is then applied to the back of the hands where ageing appears. The face mask is then removed and the pure anti-ageing extract oil is applied with pinching techniques to improve tone, absorption and elasticity. Following this the hand mask is removed and you will enjoy a luxurious scalp massage and before completing the treatment with youth moisturiser applied to the face, décolletage and hands.
Anti-Cellulite Treatment (50 mins): €80
Remove cellulite, toxins and smooth your skin with this total detox treatment. Beginning with a sea salt exfoliation on the bottom and back of the thighs, followed by an anti-cellulite mask during which you will enjoy a pressure point massage to the soles of the feet, this treatment will ensure that all toxins are removed from your body. The tummy and front of the thighs is then exfoliated with the sea salt scrub and the anti-cellulite mask is applied again. While the mask removes further toxins you will be pampered with a relaxing scalp massage followed by a lymphatic drainage massage on problem areas leaving your skin silky smooth and your body completely detoxed.
