Lava Shell Glacial Detox
Try a different type of massage, one that will purify your body following the festive meals. Using “glacial shells”, which are tiger clams sourced in Asia, two chilled and one heated, the Glacial Detox combines hot and cold pressure to stimulate circulation. By applying long flowing movements, the invigoration treatment aims to eliminate toxins, breakdown fatty tissues, stimulate the digestive system and even ease emotional stress in a full mind and body detox. As it acts as a non-invasive colonic, it’s ideal for weight loss programmes too.
From £55. Treatments are on offer at spas and salons around the country, sharedbeautysecrets.com

Submerge yourself in a revitalising and nourishing experience that will hydrate your skin and leave it glowing, as the oil improves elasticity and cleanses tired skin.
