The heart of happiness: Beauty Progress

“How did it get late so soon?” said Dr Seuss, a relatable sentiment as we operate on fast forward through busy days. Tasks on the to-do lists multiply and the most important job of all – looking after ourselves – can get left behind. When busy days become frantic weeks, we can move from thriving, to only just surviving.



That’s where Beauty Progress Thai Massage Spa comes in. At Beauty Progress, owner Wendy Barker understands that you need to get straight to the heart of top-quality treatments that are tailored to you, using acclaimed products applied by experts. A full range of massage, body treatments and facials are available, and Wendy specialises in planning your treatments to ensure that every moment in the spa is focused on your bespoke therapies.

Wendy has chosen the celebrated Gernétic products for treatments. With more than ten years’ experience working with this extensive range, Wendy herself selects the ideal products and applies them for your bespoke facial, addressing your combination of concerns and skin issues, whether that be aging, wrinkling, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, burns, scarring, sun damage, blemishes and problem skin. A facial by Wendy using selected Gernétic formulations left me with skin glowing in a way that it has not for twenty years!

As well as natural skin perfection, Beauty Progress specialises in massage. Wendy’s talented team perform authentic Thai massage, treating the body in a holistic way: physically, emotionally and spiritually, achieving an overall feeling of wellbeing. Thai massage is deep tissue, so it is especially beneficial to those of us with injuries and age or work-related stiffness. There is also Swedish, herbal, yoga, aromatherapy, head, foot spa, four hands, back neck and shoulders, pregnancy, post-natal, baby, and foot reflexology. You’ll feel fabulous the moment you climb off the bed, with lasting benefits.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, Beauty Progress is offering a special promotion. The 90-minute Executive Treatment incoporates a 30-minute foot spa and reflexology to ease sore and tired feet, plus a divine one-hour full body deep massage or you can choose a Hydrating Facial instead. A scalp massage is also included. Normally worth over $215, you can treat yourself or your mum to the Executive Treatment for $119 until the end of May 2019.

Gift vouchers are also available for this fabulous deal, phone 0800 379 4315 to book, or visit to make an appointment.

A feel-great festive season: Beauty Progress

The festive season is joyful, social and busy, and most of us wouldn’t have it any other way. But it can also be stressful and, if you’re feeling the pressure, your body will soon let you know.


Beauty Progress


Neck and shoulder aches from long hours at the computer delivering those jobs everybody wants completed before Christmas; feet painful from pounding pavements and malls in search of the elusive perfect gift, and skin showing the stress of wondering how you’ll seat 15 at your table for 8 can be unwelcome additions to your Christmas lists.

Beauty Progress Thai Massage Spa, a specialist in massage, facials and quality skin treatment products, is the guardian angel of your feel-good festive vibe. The team is offering a Christmas Massage Special – it is a delicious full 90 minutes of massage for the amazing price of $99 and includes a full body massage, a head and scalp massage, and foot reflexology massaging.

While you are there, double down on your stress reduction by stocking up on Christmas gift vouchers for loved ones who have been especially good this year. The vouchers come in any value from $30 to $100, or can be gifted for a specific treatment. Beauty Progress is open over the holiday period, so visiting friends and family can use their voucher to come in and de-stress, or you can come in together and experience the relaxing bliss as a bonding exercise!

The facials at Beauty Progress are something special. The team uses a product range exclusive to them in Christchurch. Ten years ago, Gernétic approached Owner and Skin Therapist Wendy Barker. “I proceeded to do in depth research on friends and family, and discovered the range to be the best I have used in 30 years of skin therapy,” Wendy says.

“The range, which is French, was first developed to treat burns in Paris hospitals, so the products contain 50 to 80 percent active ingredients, as opposed to the 20 to 30 percent that you can buy over the counter.” The full and final answer to your festive prayers is received when you discover Beauty Progress is open seven days from 9am to 7pm and there is parking at the door.
