Bacial Therapy

Bacial Therapy

A Bacial Treatment is a very popular treatment and has the ability to both relax and re-energise. In case the term ‘bacial’ sounds new to you, it is nothing but a full facial for your back. So, just like a facial deeply cleanses and exfoliates the skin on your face, a bacial too improves skin tone and texture and increases blood circulation and makes skin smooth to touch. So, in short, it is back facial for a smoother, clearer, and a glowing back.

The Treatment

A Bacial is a thorough skin treatment specially designed and formulated for your back, basically it is a Facial for the Back. Why would anyone bother, some might ask? Well if you suffer from breakouts or acne on your back then why not visit a professional and thoroughly trained therapist to have these issues dealt with. We see so many adverts all promoting facial skin care but what about other parts of our body. Our backs are exposed when we go swimming, to the beach, spa days, wear our summer wardrobe etc. Plus, who needs an excuse to have some ‘me time’. Life is stressful enough as it is without having to justify to someone why you are looking after your skin.

Back facials use a lot of the same products and techniques used in skin treatments for the face. They cleanse the skin, exfoliate, steam, extract, tone, massage and moisturise. Complete bliss!

Bacials are for both men and women targeting specific skin types such as dry skin, or congested skin.

Before and After your Treatment

Here is some guidance on what to do to prepare for your treatment along with what you can expect after the treatment too

  • Try to avoid eating a large meal at least 1 hour before your treatment. Please also refrain from consuming alcohol or using other substances before any treatment or therapy.
  • Arrive on time. This insures that you don’t arrive flustered and stressed. It also means that you will get the most out of your treatment. We ask all clients to arrive 10-15 minutes before their treatment is due to begin.
  • Talk to your therapist. If you are concerned or anxious about anything to do with your treatment let us know. We want to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed.
  • We ask our clients to ensure they arrive clean and ready for their treatment. If you are coming straight from work or the gym, please let us know and we can arrange for the use of our shower facilities before the treatment. (A surcharge will apply).
  • All new clients will need to complete a full medical and lifestyle questionnaire before their treatment. All existing clients will need to complete a treatment record card before any subsequent treatments. This is to ensure we can provide you with the best possible care and to comply with our insurance policies.
  • Please wear loose comfortable clothing and appropriate underwear. For any spa treatments, a robe will be provided for your comfort.

Everyone client has to complete a medical and lifestyle questionaire on their first visit - we ask you to arrive early (approximately 20 minutes) to allow you time to complete this in our relaxation area. On every subsequent visit you will be asked to confirm that none of the details have changed. This is primarily for your protection and to ensure we are aware of any contra-indications before providing tretment. It is also a requirment of our insurers.

  • Drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins; massage aids the removal of toxins from the body
  • Coffee, tea and cola should be avoided as they contain caffeine. Aim to drink two glasses of water after each drink of tea or coffee if not. Or try to drink herbal infusions in place of tea or coffee
  • Avoid any headache tablets as these too contain caffeine
  • Avoid eating a heavy meal. Eat a light and natural diet, as refined and processed foods add to the toxicity levels within the body and hinder the natural healing process
  • Do not smoke or drink alcohol for the next 24 hours. Alcohol and smoking are counter-productive as they increase the levels of toxins in the body.

Healing Crisis

Some people may experience the following after treatment:

  • Feelings of tiredness or fatigue
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Headache
  • Heightened emotional state - feeling a little emotional, perhaps even tearful
  • Changes in bowel movements/urine

These effects are only be temporary and should subside within 24-48 hours.
