A Gift of Wellness… Imagine if you could wrap up a parcel of good health, send an envelope filled with relaxation, or courier a box full of nurturing intention, to a much loved family member or a very special friend.
Well now you can, as I have just launched ‘A Gift of Wellness’ treatment vouchers. A beautifully designed and well presented gift card that can be used for any of the therapies offered at Boutique Wellbeing, from a Deep Sleep Face Treatment, Deep Connection Body Massage to a Luxury Manicure or Reflexology.
Boutique Wellbeing at Ash Cottage is just 5 miles from the beautiful town of Woodstock, located in the heart of the Cotswolds. A rural retreat that offers bespoke natural therapies, a perfectly unique and indulgent gift for Christmas or any special occasion.
Reflexology is a wonderful therapy. It feels profoundly relaxing and, when used in the right way, can help the body recover from a wide range of conditions.
It is one of the oldest forms of complementary therapy with roots in ancient Eygpt, China & India. It is based on the theory that there are micro-systems on the feet, hands and face that connect to all aspects of our bodies. By massaging specific points on the feet, hands or face, one can affect corresponding parts of the body. Amazing!
A Reflexologist feels for areas of sensitivity or deposits on the feet, hands or face that indicate potential weaknesses and causes of problems in the body. By massaging through these areas, it is possible to help the body recover.
To celebrate ‘World Reflexology Week’ I am offering a course of 4 Reflexology treatments for the price of 3! The sessions should ideally be taken once a week and full payment for the full course of treatments (£120, saving of £40) is due upon initially booking. Please get in touch if you are interested as spaces are limited!
Since moving to Ash Cottage 8 years ago, coming home has always felt like a therapy to me…Whether it’s the abundance of greenery surrounding the house, being nestled in the woods, all cool and languid in the summer heat, or sitting out looking over the fields, the home to several horses gently grazing all day long. I would find it hard to live anywhere else.
Many of my clients’ see this little slice of the Cotswolds as their ‘retreat’. Indulging in a beautiful facial or de-stressing with a long, slow massage, with a wellbeing retreat vibe to boot really adds to the experience they say, which is wonderful to hear. For me, adding extra layers of sensory stimulation to a therapy is so important, and one that I strive to make special for each and every person I treat.
From the deep inhalations and breath work, using the purest essences to stimulate the memory-evoking limbic system, to the koshi chime sound healing at the end, it all adds up to ensure the best experience for each and every therapy.
