The back, neck, and shoulder massage is a tried and tested favourite, but at St Ives Harbour Hotel they are giving it a bit of a twist to help soothe congested skin, with a little help from ESPA …
What exactly is the ESPA Live Saving Back Treatment?
It’s a 55 min treatment which we start with a back cleanse, followed by body brushing, exfoliation, and an aromatherapy massage. We then apply a marine mask which stays on for 10 minutes, and finish with a moisturiser to the back.
Where does it come from?
It is an ESPA treatment, which is one of the spa industry’s most favoured British brands.
What is it supposed to do?
It’s a deep cleansing treatment for congested skin. It’s great for back acne, leaves skin refreshed and renewed, and can also be a balm for any skin type, not just oily skin.
Is there anything you do to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment?
Treatment rooms always have a candle lit in the room and the lights are dimmed to make sure it’s relaxing with nice music.
Is there anything you recommend clients to do pre or post-treatment to get the most out of it?
The treatment includes a back, neck and shoulder massage, and afterwards you are likely to feel quite tired, so make sure you take some time to really relax. Don’t use the pool or sauna afterwards as you will wash the products off, and try not to do anything too strenuous.
Is there anyone you particularly recommend the treatment for?
Anyone with congested skin, particularly if you feel the skin on your back needs a little attention. People like it because it is like having a back, neck and shoulder massage, but with something a little extra to make it really special!
Is there anyone who shouldn’t have this treatment and why?
Anyone with serious eczema or psoriasis, open cuts on their back, pregnant women, anyone with high or low blood pressure, cancer, serious illnesses, heart conditions, or asthma.
