The art of spa: Beauty Progress


In these strange times, stress is a reality and manifests in so many ways, not only psychologically but physiologically too.

 

 

Indefinite business closures, self- isolation, not seeing loved ones, hit with constant conflicting news stories – it is common to feel totally overwhelmed and, while we are all different, the effect is apparent in our body and skin.

Skin fatigue affects around 75 percent of people from the age of 25 as the metabolism slows, triggering a delay in the regeneration of the cells.

The skin is less able to recover, becomes less resistant, and shows this through uneven complexion, sleep wrinkles, drawn features, expression lines, and tired eyes – all signs of premature skin ageing.

At Beauty Progress, their unique methods counteract internal deficiencies, ensuring vital nutritional elements (vitamins, trace elements and amino acids all skilfully measured) enter by cutaneous penetration, helping to improve organ health which enhances the aesthetics of the face and body.

GERnetic have developed a whole new SPA approach which combines comfort and relaxation with health and beauty, treating the internal problems and the external effects they cause.

The SPA BLISS package, combining a full body scrub with Sea Salt and Essential Oils, Body Massage with Aromatherapy body oil, plus a Marine Facial, will keep you looking fresh and stress free, while you are blissed out for three hours of total relaxation, wellbeing and health.

Meanwhile, Thai Therapeutic Massage, either Deep Tissue or Swedish is available for any length of time slot you have available.


 

Cellulite Salvation: Beauty Progress


“Even small people have cellulite,” says Wendy Barker, Director of Christchurch beauty and massage favourite Beauty Progress. Cellulite is the accumulation of fat cells in the form of clusters, given a dimpled appearance or ‘orange peel’ skin. These clusters compress circulation systems and leading to inflammation at the level of connective tissues, increasing water retention and allowing the accumulation of toxins and a loss of elasticity.

 

 

At Beauty Progress, the expertise of Thai-trained masseuses Anne and Orn, together with the specially formulated Gernétic International cellulite products, help to treat inflammation and drain tissues. The one-hour massage uses the Lympho serum, plus Vasco Artera which together leave lower limbs and heavy legs feeling lighter with an improvement of the orange peel skin visible at the end of treatment. Wendy recommends one treatment session per week, for six weeks. You can use Vasco Artera at home as well.

Wendy also offers the incredible range of Gernétic facials. Wendy selects from the incredible range of therapeutic products to create a facial that is tailored to your skin and its issues. A cult brand from France, Gernétic skincare products work at cellular level, stimulating the natural healing capabilities of the skin. “At Beauty Progress we take an entirely natural approach to skin therapy, and we believe that a mature skin can be full of life and vitality, firm and hydrated, while oily, acne prone, dry, scarred, red or hyperpigmented skin can be enhanced as well,” Wendy says.

Mind & body wellbeing: Beauty Progress


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 – Couples’ 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”.

The masters of massage: Beauty Progress


“Your body is your temple; it’s your home and you must decorate it,” said Gabourey Sidibe. A temple to self-ease and beauty itself, Beauty Progress Thai Massage and Spa is the place to visit to ensure the body your soul calls home is relaxed, toned and free from muscular aches and pains.

 

 

Massage is their specialty and there is an extensive menu of massage types to leave you feeling wonderful. Along with Sports Massage and Swedish Massage, there is Traditional Thai, Herbal Thai, Therapeutic Thai, Aromatherapy Thai and Four Hands Thai, all available as full body or specific body area options. Owner and Therapist Wendy Barker can talk you through the options and advise on the massage style that would be most beneficial.

Authenticity defines your experience when you visit Beauty Progress for your Thai massage, because specialist masseurs Anne and Orn are Thailand born and trained. Anne herself became an expert in Thai massage after discovering its therapeutic effects when she felt sore and movement was impaired. “I had a Thai massage and I discovered how incredibly effective it is and that was that,” she says. “I had to learn how to do it.”

Orn says getting massages regularly makes a huge difference to your comfort and movement, and both Anne and Orn ensure they receive regular massages themselves. “It strengthens your body and it really revives you when you are tired,” Orn says.

Training for five years in Thailand, Anne and Orn have called Christchurch home for eleven years now, but they travel back to Thailand regularly to learn about the latest developments in massage. A combined approach to massage styles is available and customers love to mix traditional Thai massage with sports massage.

“A great massage can leave you feeling so great – it can become addictive and we have customers who never go a week without a massage,” Anne says. “We can improve aches and pains anywhere on the body and it’s really helpful if customers are specific about the areas that need improvement,” Orn says.

At Beauty Progress, the full range of facials, body treatments and spa packages are available. “They combine so well with massage as a gift to yourself or someone special,” Wendy says. Discover more at www.beautyprogress.co.nz.
