The first of its kind in the UK, the Body Conclusio can be used as a treatment in it own right, or to add another dimension to your treatment of choice. Mottram Hall explains what it’s all about …
What exactly is Body Conclusio?
It’s a mobile steam bath and the chair itself is shaped a bit like an egg. Clients come along and sit in the Conclusio; we cover them over with a sheet, keeping their head clear. You can stay in it for a pre treatment for 10 minutes, or a full treatment, which is 25 minutes. We had a gentleman the other day who damaged his back on the golf course and had the full treatment, which really helped him.
Where does it come from?
It comes from Austria and was designed by Paul Haslauer; he’s very well known in the industry, he created the Brechelbath, a twist on sauna steam rooms. We have the first Brechelbath in the UK, and this is the first Body Conclusio as well. He designed our alfresco space as well; we wanted to make sure we had something unique to enhance treatments for our clients.
What is it supposed to do?
It’s great for people with a bad back, if you find normal steam rooms claustrophobic and great as a pre-treatment for any massage. It also has the benefits of a normal steam room; relaxation, relieving muscle tension, it’s good for the skin, and it opens up the pores.
Is there anything you do to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment?
Instead of just plain steam we add in alpine herbs that release beautiful smells while it works. We also recommend having treatments such as a massage afterwards as it’s a great pre-treatment. That said, it’s a great treatment in itself and is a very easy one for people to have, particularly if they don’t want to be touched but still want to relax.
Is there anything you recommend clients to do pre or post-treatment to get the most out of it?
Post treatment we recommend a massage for relaxation. An amazing combination would be a luxury oil and salt scrub before the Conclusio, and a massage afterwards!
Is there anyone you particularly recommend the treatment for?
It’s particularly good for anyone with a bad back, who don’t enjoy a normal steam room but wants the benefits of it.
Is there anyone who shouldn’t use the Body Conclusio?
Pregnant women should probably avoid it, but it’s a treatment that in itself has very few contraindications.
