The Malay Massage is justifiably renowned for its contouring and toning benefits. It uses long kneading strokes and soothing stretches and is one of the gentler approaches amongst the Asian therapies. A deep sense of relaxation is felt almost immediately and this treatment ideally suited to the busy and stressed.
This powerful massage comes from the Spice Islands of Indonesia and effectively balances the body and restores vitality. This deep pressured treatment will leave you feeling uplifted and recharged and is an effective way to release tension in the body and boost circulation.
This is a specific nurturing massage for mothers-to-be. Long sweeping strokes soothe the body, lymphatic drainage releases water retention and safe effective work is applied to key areas of tension. A nourishing oil is used to keep the skin supple and hydrated. This massage is recommended after the first trimester until birth during an invaluable time when the mother-to-be can focus purely on this precious bonding experience.
Full Body Experience For Her
Our Full Body Experience is a treatment which combines a customised massage with a scrub and a wrap. This treatment starts with a full body scrub, which you can choose from the Enhancements menu, followed by a 30 minute massage specifically tailored by your therapist to address your specific areas of concern. The treatment concludes with a full body wrap, again chosen from the Enhancements menu.
Full Body Experience For Him
This ritual commences with a back and arm scrub; areas that are hard to reach and that often succumb to break outs. A nourishing and hydrating mask is then applied which contains natural ingredients native to South East Asia. Your therapist will then use deep Balinese Massage strokes to the back of your legs and feet to effectively melt away stress in these key areas. Your Ushvani treatment is tailored to your individual needs; the chosen mask and scrub will be specifically selected from our skincare range following a consultation with your therapist.
Summer Renewal Ritual
Ushvani Spa invites guests to care for the mind, body and soul with the Summer Renewal Ritual. A busy summer season packed full of holidays, travels and excitement requires a moment for oneself to focus on detoxing and repairing the body. For this Ushvani has created the Summer Renewal Ritual which provides total relaxation allowing tension to melt away in an aromatic fusion of Kaffir Lime essential oil, an ingredient known to uplift and refresh one’s sense of well-being, which will leave your skin fragrant and soft. Throughout the whole treatment, powerful scents of Kaffir Lime fill the room to de-stress and clear your mind.
This top to toe treatment is only here for the summer, so join in the celebrations with clear, smooth and luminous skin. The Summer Renewal Ritual beginning with a full body scrub, paying close attention to the shoulders, hands, legs and feet, your therapist, using Ushvani’s Kaffir Lime Cane Sugar Scrub will stimulate and rejuvenate the skin’s texture leaving it feeling soft and well-conditioned. Kaffir Lime is renowned for its cleansing benefits that aid the natural cleansing process of the body.
This scrub experience is completed with a traditional Coconut Milk Mandi, which is freshly prepared by your therapist and will help to further hydrate and nourish the skin. Your therapist will use specialised skills to relieve areas of tension in the back using long kneading strokes and by working on pressure points on the neck and shoulders using the Ushvani Coconut and Hibiscus Oil thereafter finishing off with an application of Ushvani Balm. The above process is then carried through to your stomach, where the massage moves will stimulate the motion of the stomach and assimilate a colonic non-invasive cleanse. The Summer Renewal Ritual is also designed to stimulate the lymphatic system, which is based on our traditional Malay Massage. The additional skin contouring and toning benefits are designed to prepare the skin for the summer season, the massage aids digestion, stimulates the metabolic rate and reduces the appearance of bloating.
To complete the Ushvani Summer Renewal Ritual your therapist will work on the reflex zones of one’s feet and hands with the rich Ushvani Coconut & Kemiri Body Butter leaving them feeling nourished, refreshed and revitalised.
In recent years the rate of cancer diagnosis has significantly increased. In the UK alone approximately one thousand people are diagnosed with cancer every day. Advances in medical science are contributing to early diagnosis, together with the continual improvements to treatment options means that a high number of the population are living with cancer. At Ushvani we understand how beneficial massage therapy can be for patients, improving their sense of well-being during such a challenging time.
Usha Arumugam, founder of Ushvani has experienced first-hand how cancer can affect a loved one and how massage can provide appreciable benefits to people living with the disease. Through her own research, Usha discovered a significant lack of knowledge and training to enable spas to provide massage treatments for cancer patients. Considering her own personal experience and passion for authentic spa treatments, Usha felt inspired to create an inclusive treatment option enabling cancer patients to benefit from therapeutic soft tissue massage.
On launching Oncology Massage, Usha comments, “I am extremely proud to launch Oncology Massage at Ushvani, and I feel strongly that there is an ever-increasing acceptance and growing demand for qualified oncology massage therapists”
