As the days get busier and the festive season approaches, take some time out to enjoy moments of self care. A good place to start is a long soak in the bath or a lovely hot shower to relax your body and soothe your mind. Really savour the moment by lighting some candles, using your favourite oils or shower gel and enjoying the warmth.

You can follow this by massaging some moisturiser into your hands and feet which feels great and gets them looking their best for the party season! Then cosy up in your softest socks and comfy wear and relax with a hot drink, a good book or just enjoy the peace! Even a few minutes out of the day spent relaxing this way helps you to find calm amidst the business of modern life.

Taking time to show yourself some care sends an important message to yourself that you matter, and is crucial to your health and well-being. It is always worth making your health and well-being a top priority; as the saying goes you can’t look after anyone else unless you look after yourself first!

Fitting these moments into your daily or weekly schedule according to your lifestyle, can help you stay well and free to enjoy the festivities of the season. You will feel and look your best and be ready for socialising with friends and family.

Treat yourself or a loved one to a massage or reflexology on a cosy heated massage table with soft towels, aromatherapy candles filling the room with a soft glow and wonderful aromas – blissful! Massage and reflexology can both help to relax you and boost your immune system.

Gift vouchers make a wonderful present for the person who doesn’t always book treatments for themselves. They are available in varying amounts and can be used for 30, 60 or 90 minute treatments, and can be posted out directly to the lucky recipient
