There is a grace combined with purity in the design up there, created by the elegant whitewashed floor tiles and exquisite English wallpaper, which serve to accelerate your journey to calm. Owner Prue Macdonald loves “working with women, making them feel better about themselves”. It’s a lifetime love affair, for while Prue has been running clinics for 14 years, she has been intrigued from childhood with this industry that is progressive and constantly evolving. The Medi Spa aspect of the clinic is a passion, and along with micro-dermabrasion, dermal needling for collagen replacement is becoming very popular.
Prue is delighted that she can now offer pain-free IPL hair removal. It is available for all parts of the body, and Prue is offering 25 per cent discount from the website price for each part of the body treated until Christmas, and with special events on the radar, a full-body flawless Argan Oil Moroccan Tan is only $29 for all of Cup and Show Week. IPL hair removal is also available for men. Prue finds that back treatments are popular and also legs for those involved in multi-sport.
Prue says the movement to anti-aging is huge and she and her team of three offer a selection of Image facials using Image Products, a range of high-potency results-driven skincare that comes from the United States, to rejuvenate skin.

At face value, winter is that time of the year when we hunker down at home. But the jewel in North Canterbury’s crown – Hanmer Springs – offers a great winter escape, right at our northern front door.
Just 90 minutes from the city, Hanmer Springs is one of those cliché ‘world away from home’ type of places, the difference being that this really does feel that far from home.
Framed by snow-capped mountains from July through to August, there are plenty of outdoor pursuits for travellers to engage in.
• Skiing and snowboarding
• Walking / tramping
• Biking or mountain biking
• Swimming in the world famous thermal pools
• Quad biking
• Bungy jumping
• Jet boating
• Team-building activities
• Spa treatments.
This alpine paradise even has its own local ski field just 20km from the village, run by the Amuri Ski Club Inc. One of the most affordable and friendly ski areas in New Zealand, it has daily lessons and full ski hire for beginners through to the most advanced skiers, as well as boarders.
When the ski fun is over for the day, who can resist a soak in the Thermal Pools to stretch and take away those aches and pains.
