‘Wellness’ Therapies by Germaine de Capuccini…

Launching at Park House, Hotel & Spa from 1st February.

Oncology treatments and strong medication often cause the skin to present unwanted conditions such as extreme dryness, irritation, radiodermatitis (caused by radiotherapy), hyperpigmentation, sensitivity and sallow colour.

Designed to help restore and soothe the mind, body and soul; our Wellness Therapies use specific Light Touch Massage, making them suitable for cancer patients, both during and post treatment, those on intensive medication or anyone in need of a completely soothing and de-stressing experience. Carefully selected products target the skin-related side effects caused by chemotherapy, radiation treatment and other strong medication.

Massage is known to have an extremely positive effect on the mind and body during periods of stress. Allow us to provide a much-needed healing touch to restore an emotional equilibrium.

Additionally, we use Cold White Onyx ritual stones on the face to help relieve headaches, nausea and sensitive or irritated skin. On the body, combined with hot Obsidian stones, they boost blood flow and improve oxygenation of the tissues. Emotionally it assists in the elimination of unwanted energy, both physical and mental, to restore balance.

The following therapies are available:

Rose & Harmony Facial | 60 mins
For soothing stressed and sensitive skin, using pure rosehip oil and Royal Jelly.

Aloe & Mint Cooling Body Therapy | 90 mins
