Why it works … Simply THE Spa Baobab Massage

Using a Baobab nut to exfoliate the skin and really get into those aching muscles, Simply THE Spa at The Belfry talks about a treatment that’s unique to them, and definitely one to try to shed those last few traces of winter!

What exactly is Simply THE Spa Baobab Massage?

It’s one hour and 15 minutes, and we use an African Baobab nut to exfoliate the body using a skin polish.  Then we use the Baobab mitts with warm, pre-blended oils in a full body massage and also incorporate manual massage.

Where does it come from?

It’s from the Beauty Development Group who run our spa using Solutions by Hive.  It’s very popular and because it’s our own treatment we can adapt it for customers to suit them.  The nut is from an African Baobab Tree and we use them because of the size and texture which adds another dimension to the massage and really gets into the muscles.

What is it supposed to do?

It’s primarily a relaxation treatment with a nourishing aspect.  It takes away all the dry, dead skin, and is brilliant when it’s chilly out and your skin is feeling a bit dull!

Is there anything you do to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment?

We can add other treatment into it which flows nicely from one to the other, such as a soothing facial to make it a complete body experience.

Is there anything you recommend clients to do pre or post-treatment to get the most out of it?

Just spend some time relaxing afterwards; at least half and hour as it will take around that time for the oils to be absorbed into the blood stream.

Is there anyone you particularly recommend the treatment for?

It’s great for men and women and is really popular.  Men like it because it’s got a few slightly different components to it, it’s adaptable, and because of the Baobab Nut it can be quite deep tissue - we can adapt the pressure to the individual.

Is there anyone who shouldn’t have this treatment and why?

Anyone who is pregnant should avoid it and anyone with serious illnesses or on medication should speak to a therapist beforehand.  It’s also not advised if you have large cuts or abrasions.
