The Goddess of Flowers
Also known as the Festival of Flora we celebrate all things floral this month. Quintessential British flowers such as rose, sweet pea and freesia infuse this multitherapy with a bouquet of heady aromas.

MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM
“There sleeps Titania…”
Inspired by Oberon’s soliloquy, we will create a canopied place for you to rest with aromas of wild thyme, briar rose and honeysuckle. This is a magical massage that will delight and lull you to dream.

BESIDE THE SEASIDE
From sea to skin
Using beautiful products that contain Cornish sea salt, a trio of nutrient rich seaweeds and an elixir of sea minerals which have incredible therapeutic benefits for the skin. You’ll feel whisked away to the beach while we ensure you’re beach ready at the same time!

Smiling at you!
Freshly cut grass, the sound of leather on willow and a glass of Pimms – let us evoke a perfect English summer. Long, languid and luxurious with quintessential English summer ingredients and aromas: mint, cucumber, apple and strawberries.
Exfoliation, mask and massage for feet and face.
By the light of the harvest moon
Utilising the bountiful harvest of the British Isles with ingredients such as wheat, oats, honey, blackberries, peaches… we will literally feed your face with all the goodness of these vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants to leave you glowing.
Facial scrub and mask with neck and shoulder massage.
WHEN AUTUMN LEAVES FALL
It’s Time to Repose
This is our ultimate calming ritual. Let the hot stones warm you, drift away on the aromas of the massage oil as we gently rock you, luxuriate in the comforting body creams and rest while we restore your skin so it feels settled and soothed.
Hot stones back, hands, feet, and facial massage and moisturise.
Time to mull…
Our perennial favourite with a twist. Same aromas and ingredients: orange, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, fig, pomegranate… Still includes a full body massage and the fabulous Winter Wassail hand and foot scrub/wrap, but this year also has a new All spice facial.
