WINTER AT MY RETREAT
ESCAPE THIS WINTER AT MY RETREAT
gifts of the orient
There really is something for everyone in our winter special therapies this year. Whether your hands need some extra attention due to the harsh weather or you need to look your absolute best for the festive parties. Perhaps you need to warm through from the cold winds, or recharge and refocus your energies - or you just need some time out from the stress of the preparations they really do give you everything your heart, mind and body desires. We have upgraded our regular favourite themes; Gifts of the Orient includes a candlelit massage ritual and hot stones now enhance the Seasonal Spice therapies. We have also added a new, exciting collection we’ve called Winter Garden with an aromatic blend of wild rosehip, winter flowers and evergreen herbs.
Don’t forget we also have gift vouchers available for you to give as presents this Christmas. Or to suggest as a present for you! We’ve also highlighted some products we have in stock that may entice you, or that would be great as a gift for someone else. So light some candles, put up your slippered feet, peruse the brochure and choose your winter treats…
Creating an aromatic environment is essential in helping our clients relax. This year Temple Spa’s home fragrance collection is stunningly beautiful as well as providing an injection of seasonal aroma.

This aromatic trio provide a whisper of a Mediterranean garden to fill your air & space.

In true reverence Exalt neck gel is applied - a Turkish delight with rose essential oil and finally, award winning Skin Truffle containing gold actives will leave your skin feeling heavenly. As close to a spiritual experience as a facial can get.

MASSAGE OF THE MAGI Also known as ‘holy oil’, myrrh oil has traditionally been used for anointing the body. Our massage ritual is enhanced by candlelight and then the warm candle oil is trailed over the whole of the upper body. The pure soy is blended with myrrh, frankincense and orange essential oils, enhanced with other rich botanical oils and is the ultimate way to bless the body and sanctify the soul. This is followed by long, relaxing strokes following the meridians to begin the relaxation process. Pressure on marma points on the back, shoulders, arms, hands, neck and face releases tension and eliminates toxins. The treatment concludes with an Indian head massage finishing on the crown chakra. This truly is fit for a king - or queen!

This is followed by a deep scrub, which includes fig and pomegranate to remove dry skin and leave hands and feet feeling super soft and smooth. Next a comforting massage with allspice oils and hot stones encourages you to unwind further before a deeply nourishing orange and clove lotion is applied. Hands and feet are then wrapped in a hot towel to encourage absorption while you are treated to a scalp massage. Complete relief from seasonal stress, and protection against the elements too.
