Marie Claire, the Spa Manager of PURE Ocean Terminal tried and tested our new 10 years of PURE Spa Package
Location: Ocean Terminal
“Many of my friends and family assume that because I manage a beauty salon and spa I spend most of my time getting my nails done or in a state of relaxation on a massage bed. In reality however most of my time is spent either helping the girls out on the floor or neck deep in paper work. You can imagine my delight then when I was asked to blog about this month’s special offer. Pure is 10 this month and as part of our celebrations we are offering our customers ½ price Beauty and Spa packages.
After finishing my shift on Monday I decided to test out the Spa package which consists of ½ hour infra-red sauna session, 25 minute booster massage, 25 minute booster facial and a hot stone treat.
Anyone who knows me knows how much I love the sauna; anything that burns 800 calories in a half hour sitting gets my vote! I use the sauna frequently especially after visiting Pure Gym. As well as setting you on the path of becoming Britain’s next top model the sauna helps to rid the body of its toxins and warms your muscles, which is great before any spa treatment.
Following the sauna I was taken to a one of the treatment rooms for the next part of the package where Adele my spa therapist performed a consultation on my needs. During the consultation a foot ritual is performed; I am always amazed at how quickly I am sent into a state of relaxation the moment the therapists soak my feet.
I hold a lot of tension in my shoulders so following a thorough consultation Adele performed a deep tissue massage focussing on my neck and shoulders. After my massage I received an Elemis facial tailored to my skin type. Adele used the pro-collagen range as unfortunately the first signs of aging have started to creep in! Whilst the mask was on Adele performed hot stone treat on my feet and legs, by this point I was nearly asleep. I always enjoy hot stones; I find it such an indulgent treatment and personally think it feels like the therapists have liquid heat coming out of their finger tips.
I came out feeling extremely relaxed, almost forgetting that I was still at work. My skin felt amazing and the tension in my shoulders gone. Even my husband commented on the radiance of my skin so the proof is in the pudding there ladies! That night I slept like a baby, waking the following morning feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world…well maybe after a coffee and croissant.
I am confident that if I can have such a great experience in my workplace, with treatments performed by my staff that our customers are definitely in for a real treat”.
