Nail shape and paint
Nail varnish applied to the fingers or toes. Includes nail prep and cuticle work.

Gel polish
Gel polish applied to the fingers or toes. Includes nail prep and cuticle work. Lasts up to 12 days chip free. Can be applied during a manicure or pedicure. This process is cured under a UV lamp and it instantly dry.

Gel removal process involves the removal of the gel and the option for reapplication or nail prep and cuticle work.

Manicure and pedicure
This is an hour-long treatment that involves the soaking of the hands or feet to soften calluses and cuticles. Exfoliation is then used to remove dead skin to soften the skin, followed by a mask that intensely hydrates and moisturises the skin. A massage is the second the last step in the process to increase blood flow and joint mobility. The final step is the paint the nails with nail varnish. Gel polish can be applied as an alternative or simply no varnish at all. A perfect way to relax and revitalise the skin in the most used areas of our bodies. 

Callus peel
99% natural ingredients that softens hard calluses quickly. It is a blade free process that achieves instant results, leaving the skin smooth and soft. Results are noticeable within the first treatment. Recommended treatment every 3-4 weeks, with regular moisturising of the feet between treatments.

Luxury Pedicure
Follows the same process as a pedicure, however it includes an extra stage where the callus peel is applied to furtherly break down stubborn calluses.

Waxing & Female waxing
Hair removal process that prolongs hair regrowth. Can be done with strip wax, hot wax or threading, depending on the area. Regular waxing will lead to softer, less coarse hairs.

Hot wax is mainly used for intimate waxing as it more kind for the skin, it is perfect for those who have more sensitive skin.

Tinting is for eyelashes and eyebrows. A patch test is required 48 hours prior to treatment. It can enhance facial features. If you struggle with fair lashes, a lash tint will allow you have black or dark-brown eyelashes for up to 4 weeks.

Lash lift
The lash lift is a hassle-free way to enhance your natural lashes. It is a process that requires no maintenance. It lasts 6-8 weeks and then the process is repeated. 

It is a very relaxing treatment that involves perming the lashes over a silicone eye shield, to open the eye and curl the eyelashes. During this treatment, you can relax and enjoy a hand massage whilst the solution is taking. It gives a similar affect to a lash curler, but this affect lasts 6-8 weeks. During which the lashes will relax to a normal state. 

This treatment requires a patch test, 48 hours prior to the appointment.

Eyelash Extensions
Patch test is required 48 hours prior to your treatment. Within this 15-minute period, we will discuss what affect you desire your lashes to be. There are two types, Russian eyelash extensions or individual eyelash extensions. Both require the same process, which takes 2.5 hours depending on the number of lashes that you have. 

The difference being, the individual lashes have a 1-1 ratio to your lash. Whereas the Russian lashes have a 1-3, 1-4 or 1,5 ratios, which may also be call 3D,4D or 5D lashes. These give a much fuller and bold look. Both enhance your eyes!

Hot stone massage
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The massage can be full body or a back, neck and shoulder. 

Hot or cold stones can be used, but cold stones are generally used for sport injuries or for areas of swelling. By using the hot stones as an extension of the body it allows the muscles to be heated more quickly, and allows the therapist to work deeply into the muscles and in tight areas. A hot stone massage is very beneficial to the body as it helps to relieve muscle tension and pain. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety, which in return will promote better sleep.

Indian Head Massage
This is a super relaxing treatment that can help with sinuses, headaches and tension in your shoulders, neck and upper back. Indian head massage originates from India, dating back 5000 years. 

This 45-minute treatment consists of a massage of the arms, upper back, up into the neck, leading to the head and finishing with the face. This is perfect treatment for you to really zone out and relax. Blocks of regular Indian head massage can also relieve headaches and migraines

Hopi ear candles
Do you suffer with blocked ears? This is a natural method that has been around for many years, used to draw out blocked ear wax from the ear. The candle acts like a chimney and draws the impurities out. It is pain free, relaxing treatment that can help with block ears and sinuses.

 You can choose between an hour long facial where we will look at your skin and look to improve specific things that you want to achieve from the treatment. Or you can go for a 30-minute treatment that targets one main goal, for example deep exfoliation or hydration.

An hour long facial includes a shoulder and face massage which helps with skin firm and helps to promote collagen in the face, to reduce wrinkles!!! More blood flow to the area increases collagen production, which gives a healthy and natural glow to the complexion. During your mask, you can choose between a hand, foot or head massage. Within this time, we can discuss your skin and what you want to achieve long term.

Emily Smith
Trained locally at the Wiltshire School of Beauty and Holistic Therapy I have been in the industry for 3 years. I learnt in an intensive manor, training alongside clients in a salon environment. I am still learning new treatments as I love to learn new things, and feel it is important to stay up to date within the industry. 

I enjoy doing what I do because it gives me great satisfaction to improve people’s appearances and well-being. There is no better feeling than seeing a client’s reaction from a treatment. As I offer a wide range of treatments, it means I have constant variety within my day and I never get bored doing what I do, which is very important. Combined with client satisfaction and personal satisfaction I couldn’t be happier doing what I love every day.
