I have always thought a visit to the seaside is pretty good for the soul, but Foxhills have given a whole new dimension of goodness to the experience with hot pebbles, an ice cream wrap, and a sea salt scrub …
What exactly is the Seaside Signature Treatment?
It’s our two hour signature treatment. It involves a little bit of everything – a body scrub, a body wrap, and a hot pebble massage. It also includes a mini facial and a scalp treatment.
Where does it come from?
We created the treatment ourselves using the La Sultane de Saba product line. The name comes from the spa’s 1950s seaside theme, which is why we use hot pebbles rather than stones, a shea butter and vanilla ice cream wrap, and a sea salt scrub.
What is it supposed to do?
It’s a very luxurious treatment and it’s all about nourishing the skin. You have the scrub and cleanse for face and body, then nourishing and moisturising through the wrap, and then you relax completely thanks to the massage.
Is there anything you do to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment?
We play seaside music in the background with the waves crashing and our little finish is that we give you a stick of rock. We also decorate the room with sea shells and starfish for effect.
Is there anything you recommend clients to do pre or post-treatment to get the most out of it?
Very little! We prepare the skin completely with the exfoliation so you don’t have to do anything, and then afterwards, just totally relax, you won’t want to be rushing back to work or anything afterwards. Two hours is a wonderfully relaxing amount of time and the vanilla scents are very heavy and really make people fall asleep.
Is there anyone you particularly recommend the treatment for?
Anyone who has a stressed lifestyle and doesn’t often get time for themselves (which is a lot of people these days). If you have something major coming up in your life like a move or a wedding, book one of these in for immediately afterwards – it’s a good way to catch up on their sleep as well! It’s also great for dry skin, or if you are generally dehydrated.
Is there anyone who shouldn’t have this treatment and why?
There’s no reason why anyone who is pregnant couldn’t have the treatment other than that it’s very long, so we might adapt it to a mini treatment. With serious illnesses you may need the permission of your consultant but there’s no real reason why you shouldn’t be able to have it. Any circulatory problems such as DVT or skin disorders that are infectious should avoid it.
