Giving a manicure, or manicuring as it is called professionally, was once considered only a luxury for the rich. More and more women (and men) now have regular manicures. Manicuring is derived from the Latin word manus which means hand and cura which means care. Manicuring improves the appearance of the hands and nails.
The perfect way to combine a relaxing pampering experience with a healthy treat is a manicure and pedicure service. Taking care of your hands and feet is essential to our overall well-being. Spending time with your favourite nail technician, your feet and hands will benefit from having the spotlight. We have all the necessary tools and equipment and always have a supply for your choice of nail colours. Manicure and pedicure services are not just for women; men benefit from this service as well. Manicures and pedicures should be done regularly for good foot and nail health.
We use a warm wax specifically designed for use with delicate skin and strips of fine cotton for all of our waxing treatments. We now also use two different waxes; one for body waxing, which is cream-based and the other, infused with lavender for sensitive parts of the body such as face, underarm and bikini.
We do NOT double dip for face, underarm or bikini waxing to avoid all contamination, we reassure our clients that our wax services are the best in the city. Be sure to ask about our Brazilian waxing treatment.
Waxing hair removal uses a resin-based wax like product to remove the entire hair follicle from the root. Result can last up to six weeks.
How Does it Work.
Wax on. A warm wax mixture is spread over the hair in the direction of its growth and a cloth strip is then placed on top of soft wax. Hard wax doesn't require a strip because it cools solid enough, and becomes a strip in itself.
Wax off. Once wax has slightly cooled or has grasped enough to the hair, itís pulled off in the opposite direction of hair growth. The entire hair follicle should be removed from the root, if the waxing is done correctly.

Facial skin care and treatment
Our skin is our largest organ, performing several functions, including protecting us from invasion by foreign substances and serving as the transfer point for the release of toxins from our bodies. Facials are deep skin treatments that cleanse, rehydrate and rejuvenate the skin, apart from minimizing skin blemishes, acne, dry skin and, of course, wrinkles. Facials vary depending on your skin type, the kind of treatment you've chosen, the products used and the person's age. However, it is advisable to start having facials in your late 20's.
Facial skin care and beauty products
The skin provides an honest mirror of our inner health and well-being. It is thus especially important to use only natural, gentle ingredients on our skin whenever possible. Application to the skin of fresh, natural products such as essential oils, plant waters (also called "hydrosols") and cold pressed unscented oils helps maintain a youthful, glowing complexion.
Essential oils and hydrosols are the fragrant liquids that are distilled from different plant parts, such as flower petals; herbs leaves and tree barks, and are fundamental components of any solid, natural skin care regime. Cold pressed unscented oils are extracted from various fruits, nuts and seeds, and include olive oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil and jojoba oil. Used in tandem, essential oils, hydrosols and cold pressed unscented oils work together to soothe and nourish the skin, encouraging a healthful, radiant complexion.
Benefits of facials and facial massage
Facials involve a cleansing procedure, a massage and steam, and the application of a face mask. What they help to do is remove the dead, dull outer layer of cells that make up the skin's surface or epidermis along with pollutants. The massage, which is an important part of a facial, helps blood circulation, which in turn aids lymphatic drainage (the removal of toxins and waste from the body). A facial massage also relaxes the facial muscles and is very important to delay the onset of wrinkles.
The face is steamed during a facial for two main reasons. Firstly, steam helps the skin absorb cream better. Secondly, it helps in softening blackheads and whiteheads so that they can be removed easily. The application of a face mask in the end helps tone and clarifies the skin. Face masks are also used to treat dry and acne-ridden skin.

What is lava shell massage?
Lava shell massage is similar to hot stone massage. Instead of stones, the therapist will use between one and four heated tiger striped clam shells from the Philippines to massage your body. The therapist can use different parts of these pretty shells to complement various massage strokes. The knob on the back of the shell can be used to work away at tight knots. The smooth surface of the shell is ideal for applying gentle pressure to calves and arms, and you might feel the therapist using the narrow edge of the lava shell to work around tense shoulder blades or between your toes.
How are the shells heated?
Each lava shell has a rubber cap on the bottom. The therapist inserts a sachet of algae, minerals and dried sea kelp into the shell, and adds an activator liquid. The chemical reaction between the activator and the "lava gel" sachet creates heat that can last up to a couple of hours.
Who would enjoy a lava shell massage?
Anyone with tense muscles -- the heat from the lava shells will gently relax and smooth away those knots. The shells naturally give off calcium ions when heated, which transfer to your skin during the massage. Calcium can help to firm and regenerate the skin -- a nice bonus.
