Combat the visible effects of skin ageing and restore the appearance of a younger, more toned body with the Pure Fiji Guava Anti-Ageing Nourishing Wrap. The treatment begins with a raw cane sugar scrub followed by a body masque application and warm oil scalp massage. An Anti-Ageing Botanical Blend enriched with guava fruit, high in vitamin C, boosts collagen production and tones and hydrates the skin for a nourished and healthy glow.
“I have just arrived home having had a Guava Body Wrap. It was the most relaxing experience. I felt so pampered. My husband had given me the treatment as a Christmas present. He now knows for Birthdays & Christmas, he just calls Shambala & buys a gift treatment. Today’s treatment, as usual, was a ten out of ten. From the warm welcome when I arrived to the refreshing herbal tea when my treatment was over, I felt I had been totally spoilt. Thank you Shambala from a very happy client.” Elizabeth J.
Shambala’s Lava shell massage has proven very popular with our clients. Two highly polished tiger clam shells are heated with an algae and mineral mixture which generates heat for 60 minutes. The therapist massages your full body with the shells, using movements similar to Swedish massage. The heat penetrates into the muscles providing relief without the (at times painful) heavy pressure of a remedial massage. The result is a therapeutic massage that is also incredibly relaxing.
The Pacific Pearl spa package combines the Lava Shell massage with a body glow scrub using the wonderful aromatic creams from Pure Fiji. Your skin will be scrubbed and rehydrated and you will leave us glowing and planning your next visit.
