Bamboo Massage Experience at The Well Spa Retreat

By Kathryn Slade Bamboo Massage

One thing that I always notice when I visit the spa is how easy our therapists are to talk to. All of the staff in the spa are ESPA trained so they understand the products and treatments allowing them to advise on the best fit for your needs. I know from experience that your first visit to a spa can be a bit daunting but it really shouldn’t be, if you have any questions at all then the team are more than happy to help.

As recognition for the hard work and high standards we are delighted to be able to say that we have been nominated in the Best Spa in Wales category at the upcoming Good Spa Guide awards.

I visited the Well Spa Retreat to find out more about one of our latest treatments; the bamboo massage. Using bamboo is an innovative way of massaging and we are one of only a few spas in the country who are currently providing this technique.

The bamboo massage is tailored to your needs like all of the Well Spa’s treatments and it is carried out to ESPA’s 5* standard with all the special touches that you would expect from an ESPA spa. This massage is great for those wanting an energy boost; it’s the perfect way to start your Bluestone break if you are going to be having lots of adventures. Before the massage begins you are asked to fill out a consultation form which will allow the therapist to learn a little more about what you are hoping to achieve from the treatment. It’s also a great time to ask questions if you are unsure of anything after all the more relaxed you are the more you will benefit from the massage.

You will pick one of two sensory oils that will be used during your treatment, you will naturally be drawn to the one that your body is most in need of. Today my body was looking for rejuvenation so that was the oil that was used. This oil is used in combination with your therapist’s hands and the bamboo sticks which have been warmed. It’s a unique experience as they rolled across the skin in long strokes and then focused on specific points that are picked up by the therapist’s hands. I have been struggling with a lot of muscular tension recently as it has been a busy few weeks! The warmth of the bamboo helped to stretch out muscles so they were easier for Megan to work when it came to the problem knots. It was such a relaxing experience that I was almost fast asleep but after the massage I felt as if I was ready to go again with my muscle feeling 100 times better than they were when I went in.

At Bluestone we are really lucky to have our own Spa on resort which is exclusive for guests. Here you can relax and unwind while enjoying luxurious treatments using ESPA products.
I have noticed a difference in my skin recently after changing cosmetic brands and so I went to the Spa to ask their advice on how I could look after my skin.
