If the mind is willing to frolic into spring like a Canterbury lamb but the body is tiptoeing along like a tuatara, then a visit to Beauty Progress for a Thai Massage will see body reunited with mind in as little as 15 minutes.
Authentic Thai Massage treats the body in a holistic way: physically, emotionally and spiritually, achieving an overall feeling of wellbeing. The range offered by Director Wendy Barker is extensive and includes herbal, yoga, aromatherapy, head, foot spa, four hands, back neck and shoulders, pregnancy, post-natal, baby and foot reflexology.
Wendy says clients travel to Beauty Progress from all points of the compass, intent on enjoying the therapeutic benefits. Thai Massage is deep tissue, so it is especially beneficial to those of us with injuries, chained to the keyboard, or simply not as young as we used to be. Select the yoga stretch massage and you will find yourself in positions you did not believe possible!
Of course, a Thai massage can be a purely hedonistic experience – couple’s Thai Massages are a treat for lovebirds, best friends, or mothers and daughters, and are always a special price at just $199 for a one-hour massage. You can add a specialised head and scalp massage or a reflexology massage for just $35. Wendy and the team love what they do. “It’s a lovely role to be in, people come in with pain or are just exhausted and after their massage we wave them on their way so happy and relaxed.”
Clients stepping into Waltham Road’s Beauty Progress Thai Massage Spa are assailed by wonderful aromas and gentle music in a cocoon of warmth.
This haven of calm is where beauty treatments by leading therapists Wendy Barker and Fiona Edwards are administered.
Both Wendy and Fiona have extensive beauty and spa experience. Wendy established a well renowned Spa in 2000, before opening Beauty Progress Thai Massage Spa in 2007.
Rapid growth has meant that Wendy recently welcomed Fiona Edwards to the team. Fiona’s experience as a therapist also spans decades, as does that of Thai-massage therapists, Anne and Orn.
The team uses naturally formulated, plant-based ‘GERnetic’ products, which originated in France to heal third-degree burns. The fine molecular structure and efficient delivery system of these products allows percutaneous penetration, similar in activation to slow-release medical patches.
Wendy finds GERnetic superb for sensitive or sun damaged skin and for those susceptible to eczema. It’s especially great as a skin-defence system for those suffering reactions to the recently-chlorinated Christchurch water.
Also ideal for mature skins, GERnetic’s anti-ageing properties have produced spectacular results; firming skin, lifting facial contours, improving skin tone and reducing fine lines and blemishes within a few weeks.
In celebration of Fiona’s return to the spa, Wendy is promoting her Pure Indulgence Treatment; a holistic hour and a half of rejuvenating tension-relief massage for feet, face, back, neck and shoulders.
Would you be interested in better health, more relaxation, better circulation, greater flexibility, higher levels of peace of mind, an improved sense of well-being, stress relief and a feeling of being totally revitalised?
