kickstart your wellness

in the hands of a professional

If you thought that it was only your skin confidence that benefitted from treatments with your professional skin therapist, think again. Skin treatments, massage and all hands-on services provide much broader benefits to overall wellbeing than you might have imagined. Did you know that simple human touch goes beyond social bonding and impacts our physical, mental and emotional health?

Why is human touch so powerful?  

Research has shown that touch promotes the release of a range of biological chemicals that impact our bodies and our mood.

Here are three wellbeing reasons to book a treatment with your professional skin therapist:

1. Reduce anxiety and stress

Physical touch increases levels of dopamine and serotonin, two neurotransmitters that help regulate mood and relieve stress and anxiety.

2. Feel more positive

Known as the “feel good” hormone, oxytocin helps inspire positive thinking and an optimistic outlook on the world.

3. Boost immune system and lower blood pressure

Physical touch is known to improve the function of your immune system as well as reduce diseases such as those associated with the heart and blood.
