CHAMPNEYS LUXURY MERCARINA FACIAL - a cross between a massage and a facial.
Upon arrival the client is asked to get into a robe and pop their feet into a bubbling foot spa while the therapist talks through any concerns they may have about their skin and/or general well being.  This is followed by an amazing foot rub of marine salts, essential oils and olive oil applied to the feet.

The client then gets onto the treatment couch and inhales either eucalyptus or peppermint or whichever essential oil is relevant to their needs. With a few breathing exercises they receive a wonderful deep back and neck massage to relieve tension knots and in doing so relax the facial muscles in preparation for the facial.

Old fashioned hot cotton towel hand mitts are used to warm, cleanse and soften the skin infused with floral/herbal essential oils e.g. geranium/rosemary to soften the water and become a truly aroma experience. After cleansing and toning, instead of a harsh facial scrub, a duo of purifying or revitalising clay masks infused with green and pink Argiletz French clay and essential oils is applied. Whilst this mask is working on the skin, a hot towel mitt is massaged onto the hands and arms followed with a luxurious beeswax butter rich in anti-oxidants is massaged into the hands and arms.

The best part is the heart of the facial - as with all the best facials it is a bespoke massage. Massage oils are made from cold pressed vegetable oils available in Lavender/Rose Damask/Sandalwood & Vetiver/Red Mandarin or Neroli, if necessary these are mixed with base oils. A twenty minute massage with acupressure, deep facial massage and lypmphatic massage to the face, neck, shoulders and scalp follows with specific work on energy centres on the scalp known as “Marma Points”.

This increases blood circulation, stimulates cellular renewal and simply feels amazing! To cool the skin after the intense infusion of warm towels, massage and aromatherapy, there is a unique ice massage for 30-60 seconds performed over the face and neck upon a medium of cloth gauze dampened with lavender floral toner.

Whilst a soothing and hydrating aloe vera gel covers the neck and face, a creamy peppermint foot butter is massaged into the feet which invigorates the body and starts the re-awakening process!

In conclusion an abdomen massage with yoga style breathing is given to the client to aid digestion and healing work upon the solar plexus.  A suitable moisturiser, eye-cream and lip balm is applied and then for the fun bit - a personal reading using Angel/Fairy and Magical Mermaid and dolphin cards - these are not tarot cards but instead offer positive, up beat messages.
