There’s no better way to relax the body and mind than escaping from reality for a few hours and pampering yourself with luxury treatment at heather and Earth Spa in Ballinasloe’s Shearwater Hotel.
The Heather and Earth Spa offers a real oasis of calm away from the bustling hotel. There are a range of excellent packages and offers available, or simply ask your consultant for a recommendation. Three of their most popular treatments are the exotic frangipani body nourish wrap/float, hot lava shell back massage, and visible brilliance facial - which combined make for a very relaxing and pampering couple of hours.
Using all Elemis products the treatment starts with body brushing, after this your skin will be drenched with warm frangipani oils before a scrub is added to smooth and moisturise your skin. You’re then wrapped to allow all the rich oil to be absorbed while your therapist gives you a soothing head massage.
After a refreshing shower a layer of rich body moisturiser is applied followed by a hot lava shell back massage.
Smooth away any knots or tension with this deep tissue massage which uses heated lava shells to achieve a firm deep pressure and treat deep-rooted muscle problems. The radiating heat from the shells releases tension and leaves you feeling instantly stress-free and rejuvenated.
Now that you’re fully relaxed it’s time for the visible brilliance facial. Popular with brides-to-be, this signature Elemis facial is ideal for ageing, stressed, and slackened skin.
Your skin will instantly firm, rejuvenate, and plump up whilst dark circles from around the eye contour will be reduced.
It also helps improve moisture levels while a special face massage will help to smooth. Add in a luxurious hand and arm massage and de-stress scalp treatment for the ultimate in scientific skin-therapy.
Don’t forget to leave some time at the end to visit their relaxation room where you can lie back with a magazine, and enjoy a herbal tea and some fresh fruit.
The Heather and Earth Spa at the Shearwater in Ballinasloe is open seven days, Saturday to Wednesday from 10am-6pm with late opening on Thursday and Friday by appointment.
