Elemis brings Calming Ritual to Ragdale Hall

Elemis is launching its new signature treatment, Beyond Bliss Calming Ritual, designed exclusively for Ragdale Hall Health Hydro. 
The Elemis Beyond Bliss Calming Ritual is performed in the new Elemis treatment room at Ragdale Hall which uses sumptuous dark woods, granite stone and a rich fabrics.

Set in the Leicestershire countryside, Ragdale Hall Health Hydro offers state of the art facilities in truly relaxed and charming surrounding.  Ragdale Hall have won Health Spa of the Year in the Professional Beauty Awards for the last 8 years and Best Destination Spa in 2006.

The Elemis Beyond Bliss Calming Ritual is the first signature treatment on the Ragdale Hall spa menu. This head to toe luxurious ritual combines the highly acclaimed Visible Brilliance Facial and the healing power of the warm Basalt stones.

On creating the treatment Noella Gabriel, Director of Product & Treatment Development at Elemis comments, “The Beyond Bliss Calming Ritual was designed to deliver pure decadence in pampering with visible results. Created and designed to mirror the excellence of Ragdale Hall, this treatment offers the client pure bliss by marrying the warm stones with the highly acclaimed, revolutionary Visible Brilliance.  The gentle heat from the warm basalt stone, teases out those aches and pains while the facial leaves skin looking visibly glowing and radiant”.

As with all Elemis treatments, Beyond Bliss Calming Ritual commences with the signature ‘Welcome Touch’ - a foot cleansing ritual using Lime-infused mitts and Thai foot massage techniques.  Next is a truly wonderful massage using the hot stones.  The stones are bathed in warm water, anointed with the spicy, sensual aromas of the Orient, and placed on key energy points of the body to harmonise the spirit. Then in a firm rhythmic massage sequence, which mimics the strong but steady stream of flowing water, the stones give up their power and warmth to tired and tense muscles.


The penetration of heat and texture from the stones makes them perfect for a therapeutic massage, working deep into the belly of the muscle. The entire body is sensuously massaged using the hot batu stones. The smooth stones glide over the body introducing you to a new level of touch and relaxation.

The massage promotes inner peace, releases muscular tension, balances energy levels, whilst exciting every sense. This is a unique aromatic journey for the soul that achieves all over deep relaxation and prepares body and soul for the highly acclaimed Visible Brilliance Facial.

Visible Brilliance is the first facial to be introduced to the market having undergone expert clinical trials with phenomenal results - the skin’s elasticity is increased by up to 28% and moisturisation levels are increased by up to 38% after just one treatment.

Visible Brilliance incorporates the revolutionary Amino Active Mask into the facial treatment. This advanced anti-ageing therapy provides the skin with cell plumping nutrition, that has an immediate deep cleansing action whilst restoring moisture levels.  After the removal of the mask, the skin has a visibly plumper and significantly more radiant appearance.

The facial brings together the strengths of dynamic Eastern massage techniques including Thai massage and Tui Na. Flowing movements outline the face and neck to encourage lymphatic drainage to define and tone the jaw line and help soften and relax stressed skin.  The therapist also performs specialised micro-circulatory massage techniques designed to enhance localised lymphatic drainage and improve circulation.

Visible Brilliance also incorporates a dynamic eye therapy.  Silk compresses are placed on the eye contours, whilst an intensive eye massage is performed to break down congestion, ease out fine lines and reduce puffiness.  The whole ritual is a top to toe sensory experience delivering immediate clinically proven results.
