WellnessMost of us will have made New Year’s Resolutions this month, only to waiver as time goes on with these best intentions falling by the wayside.  Most of these resolutions tend to be around fitness and weight loss but what about our general well-being?  Feeling good about yourself is the first step to leading a positive and rewarding lifestyle and here’s how the Cosmetik Clinic can help.

Start with a Massage

The word massage is synonymous with relaxation.  In fact, most people start to feel chilled and relaxed the moment they lay down in the treatment room.  Essentially, you are in dim, quiet space surrounded by soothing music and scents.  Once the massage starts, all the tension and stress in your body and mind is released through the power of touch.

Massage creates a feeling of mindfulness enabling you to detach your feelings and just observe your thought process as you remain engaged in the massage experience.

When your skin’s nerve cells feel pressure, they signal the brain to release feel-good chemicals called endorphins, which boost your mood and give you a natural high. As a result, stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline begin to decrease, and the overall effect is one of relaxation and calm.

At the Cosmetik Clinic our therapists use aromatherapy during their treatments by applying fragrant essential oils to your bare skin. These oils complement the therapist’s soothing touch and, as well as smelling good, they also stimulate specific brain activity.

We offer a range of massage treatments ranging from a back, neck and shoulder Swedish massage through to an Indian head massage, with many more in between.  Click here to view our full range.

Move Onto Flotation Therapy

Another well-being treatment that will help you to relax and de-stress is one of our flotation tank treatments.  Our clients enjoy the feeling of floating in the warm, relaxing water within a dark, quiet environment, the body soaking up soothing and healing salts. This is what happens if you book a Cosmetik Clinic flotation tank therapy.

The salts we use in our pods are also good for you as they soften and replenish your skin and help counteract the magnesium deficiency that most of us have due to depleted magnesium sulphate levels in our food. When you float in a flotation tank, your body absorbs these minerals, helping to calm your nervous system and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal.

The deep relaxation state that you enter when floating also helps to reduce stress by lowering cortisol levels. Blood flow is stimulated, and endorphins are released. Endorphins are chemicals in the brain that reduce feelings of pain and trigger positive feelings. The extreme buoyancy that you experience when floating is essentially like experiencing anti-gravity.

Splurge on a Spa Day

For the ultimate relaxation and well-being experience, you can book into our clinic for a Spa day either on your own or with friends.   You will be pampered from the moment you enter the clinic to the moment you leave.

We offer a range of spa packages which combine our wellbeing treatments with other treatments including facials and chemical peels for example.

We’ve also put together a selection of packages which are available throughout the year.

Try Some New Classes

If you’re not into the gym but still want to exercise, albeit more gently, why not try a Pilates or Yoga class.

In addition to physical benefits such as developing core strength, improving posture and relieving back pain, Pilates also helps to create a body and mind relationship, where concentration, focus and meditation come together to help boost your mental health.

Similarly, yoga is known to have both physical and mental benefits including improving flexibility, building muscle strength, improving posture and above all helping you to focus and build on your inner strength.  There are a number of different types of yoga practices but most come with these benefits amongst others.

At the Cosmetik Clinic, we run regular Pilates classes along with specialised yoga classes: Kundulini yoga as taught by Yog Bahjan.
