HIFU is a no downtime treatment designed as a skin tightening treatment for anti-aging, face lifting, body contouring and sculpting without surgery, bleeding or scarring. HIFU technology is NOT like laser, fraxel, radio frequency, IPL, needling, or any other surgical, or non-surgical, skin tightening treatments. In fact it is much more effective, as less treatments are needed.

HIFU technology is NOT like laser, fraxel, radio frequency, IPL, needling, or any other surgical, or non-surgical, ‘face lift’ skin rejuvenation procedure. In fact it is much more effective, as less treatments are needed.
The technology works by beaming through the surface of the skin to deliver precise and fractional ultrasound energy to the deeper dermis, subcutaneous tissue and muscle layers. this deeper layer is responsible for muscular activity in the face and body. This energy stimulates both muscle firming and new collagen production, with no disruption to the outer skin surface (no scarring).
HIFU and/or RF may cause a slight redness to the skin, but this usually disappears within a matter of hours after the treatment. Some people may also suffer from a slight swelling, bruising, tenderness, numbness or tingling sensation. These symptoms are usually mild and only last temporarily.
HIFU and/or RF may cause some discomfort. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated
We then couple this with Radio Frequency, a thermal modality which is designed to heat the epidermal tissues of the skin to a certain temperature, ultimately offering a tightening effect.
Shockwave Therapy (SWT) for cellulite uses acoustic sound waves together with the body’s own ability to repair tissue by stimulating circulation in all layers of the skin, including blood vessels, connective tissue and muscles. The process tightens and forms new connective tissue, reducing cellulite and improving skin appearance
Cellulite occurs when enlarged fat cells bulge upwards towards the skin surface, giving the skin the typical orange peel often bumpy appearance. The connective tissue fibres do not stretch along with the surrounding adipose tissue, which leads to the dimpling that most of us notice in our bodies.
When the oscillating acoustic waves of SWT are introduced into the body, the connective tissue relaxes, and the firmness of the epidermis increases. Blood circulation in the tissue is significantly enhanced. Collagen production is then stimulated which strengthens the dermis and epidermis. The results of SWT include improved firmness and restored natural elasticity of the skin and connective tissue along with a visible and long-lasting improvement in skin texture.
SWT is the only evidence-based therapy for clinical management of cellulite.
SWT skin tightening treatment are very relaxing. Each area on your body is treated for 20-30 minutes. The therapist will apply an ultrasound gel to your skin to act as a protective barrier between you and the electrode rod which is massaged over your skin, focusing on any troublesome areas that need extra attention. Most clients will be able to notice an immediate result in the tightness of their skin, but results continue to emerge in the days following the treatment too. Skin is remarkably smoother and muscle tone is more visible too.
For longer term results, one session isn’t enough. Normally, multiple sessions are required, generally 1-3 per week until you’ve had about 4-8 treatments in total, this depends on the results you want and the advice of your aesthetic practitioner. To maintain the effects it is vital to lead a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise.
This heavenly treatment is the ultimate for dry, undernourished skin. Start with a heavenly footbath, followed by a dry body brush from head to toe utilising clay to stimulate the lymphatic system and slough off rough skin. Next up is a sweet, sensational scrub, followed by a slathering of healing clay, after which you will be wrapped up in your own cocoon or offered a full body steam! Moisturise and you’re ready to hit the town.
Can be done on its own or added on to any other massage, reflexology or other treatment.
This very relaxing and nourishing ritual utilises coconut and pure argan oil which is left in the hair until you are ready to wash it out. It is wonderful for destressing the whole body, is helpful against eyestrain, jaw ache and sinusitis, stimulates lymphatic drainage and aids sleep. And of course, it nourishes the hair roots.
If you have constantly aching feet, this all encompassing treatment is the one for you. A full hour of attention just on your tootsies begins with a scrub and soak in the foot spa including warm water, hydrotherapy jets and himalayan salts followed by a session in the Shiatsu foot massager.

Incorporating the ENAR energy BioBlanket and INFRABED, this package is a must for anyone feeling like they’ve lost their ‘get up and go’. You will begin with the detoxifying effects of the infrared sauna, followed by a lymphatic body brush and session on the Infrabed, to ensure you get plenty of red light healing.
INFRABED is the radiant energy thermal therapy underlay that synergizes two components, Far-InfraRed Light and Amethyst Crystal Energy, delivering Core Activation Therapy that deeply penetrates the body to help restore and maintain core temperature, circulation, metabolism etc for better health and well-being. INFRABED is designed to be the perfect complement to the BioBlanket, combining multiple energy layers to synergise.
The BioBlanket features 2 different sides = (Yin Passive + Yang Active) and is a passive reflective therapy blanket of multi layers designed to induce the body and mind to rest, recover, rebalance and re-energise. The effects of the BioBlanket are reportedly achieved through the reflection of the person’s own infrared and ultra-high frequency emissions back onto the body. Several layers inside the blanket are designed to prevent the body’s various energetic emissions from dissipating outwards.
Sauna use has many positive benefits for our skin. In addition to helping to cleanse skin of many of the toxins that accumulate as a result of the use of chemical-laden products, pollution and free radicals, the increased blood circulation to the skin brings more nutrients to the surface, thus promoting healthy tone and texture.
There is a wide body of both scientific and anecdotal evidence regarding the effectiveness of sauna heat therapy
Repeated use of a sauna slowly restores skin elimination better than any other method without the need for rigorous exercise which may be difficult or impossible for many people. Not only is the skin our largest organ, it plays an important role in detoxifying the body by eliminating undesirable chemicals and compounds through sweating. Infrared heat increases metabolism thus allowing body cells to eliminate toxins more readily.auna penetrates deep into muscle tissue, enhancing circulation and thereby promotes oxygenation of body tissues. Like other heat therapies, sauna heat therapy relives muscle aches, pains, stiffness, and muscle spasms. Sauna heat therapy is also often recommended to treat chronic pain, including joint pain, arthritis pain, and fibromyalgia. It is also effective in reducing inflammation and swelling by improving lymph flow.
