What to expect;
First a refreshing scrub is applied to disperse the dead skin cells – to help the penetration of the seaweed mud. Once this is showered off, the mud is applied over the body (with complete discretion and decency followed at all times) and tightly wrapped in foil. A heated blanket is used for warmth, detoxification and activation of the ingrediants. Our Seaweed Body Oil with natural anti-inflammatory and soothing properties is then applied to finish off the treatment for super, supple skin.
This treatment can be used to target specific areas.
Illuminate Body Wrap

Rice has always been known for its valuable nutritious properties, however more uncommon are its benefits in the beauty world.

Due to its high nourishing factors, rice bran oil slows down and prevents the ageing process whilst improving skin’s elasticity making it appear more youthful and plump.
