Holistic and Massage Therapies


You will often feel very relaxed following treatment.  You will be offered a glass of water after your treatment and have a short “come to” rest but it will be important for you to have a suitable rest period as far as is practically possible after treatment. You will be feeling in a relaxed state and may notice profound changes in your body and mind. In order to receive the maximum benefit from your treatment the following aftercare advice is recommended: 

  • Drink plenty of water or herbal drinks for 48 hours - this will help detoxify your body

  • Eat a light meal for the rest of the day or evening

  • Avoid the consumption of alcohol and caffeine for at least 48 hours - as this can have a dehydrating effect

  • Try to relax for the rest of the day or evening


Treatments are designed to rid the body of toxins and waste and consequently you may experience some adverse feelings after the treatment such as:

  • Feeling worse before feeling better (e.g. headache)

  • General feeling of fatigue

  • Totally energised


These should be regarded as positive reactions indicating that the body is healing itself.


If you have had an Indian Head Massage using oil, leave the oil in for as long as possible, as this will make your hair soft and silky. To remove the oil; shampoo straight onto dry hair, rinse and then shampoo and condition as normal.




After your treatment, it is best to avoid the following for a period of up to 24 hours or until your skin looks and feels normal again:

  • Deodorant

  • Heat treatments

  • Hot baths

  • Make-up

  • Perfumed lotions

  • Self tan

  • Soap

  • Swimming

  • Tight fitting clothes


It is important to regularly exfoliate the skin, where appropriate, this will avoid in-growing hairs.



  • Make regular appointment every 2-4 weeks to improve and maintain the condition of your skin.

  • Avoid wearing make up for 24-48 hours in order to let your skin breathe and for the treatment to take full effect.

  • Avoid using any alcohol based products on your skin as this strips the skin of its natural oils and upsets the balance.

  • Between appointments try and develop a skin care routine by cleansing, toning and moisturising every morning and evening.

  • Use an eye gel to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

  • Use a moisturiser containing an SPF factor of at least 15+ for the face and neck to include the décolleté area to minimise any sun damage from being outside.

  • Exfoliate gently 4-5 days after the treatment to keep the pores clear and refined.

  • Avoid the sun and sun beds or heated areas e.g. saunas, jacuzzis, steam rooms for at least 48 hours after treatment.

  • With regular massage Sweet Almond oil can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Drink at least 2 litres of water a day.  Water helps to keep your skin hydrated and will help to keep you looking younger.

  • Remove all make up before going to bed.  This will allow your skin to breathe at night and regenerate and to stop bacteria building up as you sleep.



  • Alcohol and smoking will hasten the ageing process.

  • Wear sun hats and protect your face as much as possible when outdoors in the sun.

  • Lack of sleep will make your skin look dull and tired.  Try and have at least one early night a week.

  • A healthy diet is essential for the body to function properly.  Exercise combined with healthy eating on a regular basis; your face and body will thank you!
