February is the last month of winter, yes we can still have snow and very cold periods but we can also have those days when you feel the sun getting a little stronger. And the days are getting a little longer too…all positive!!
This month is an excellent time to get more active, begin your fitness & diet to get into shape for summer.. Body brushing is a wonderful way to wake your body up. Do it dry before your bath or shower then slather on body moisturiser afterwards to rehydrate. Drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins and you will begin to notice more energy and your skin will feel improved.
THERAPIES FOR FEBRUARY ARE…
There are still lots of coughs and colds about so think about having a lymphatic drainage massage or reflexology lymph drainage to keep your immune system in good health. Lymph is pumped around your body by your breath, movement and massage and is very important to fight off infections.
Hopi Ear Candle treatment or Sinus massage helps to keep your ears clear of excess wax which allows your sinuses to drain naturally.
Warm Bamboo massage or Hot Stone massage uses warmth to keep your muscles feeling relaxed and stretchy. Both are on offer throughout February.
