Moving house is said to be the third most stressful experience people go through, and can often leave you feeling a little worn out. With that in mind, our friends at The Rye Retreat have written us a guest blog with some great suggestions on how to de-stress when moving house in the Rye area…
"From 20 minute quick fixes to longer luxuries, indulging in some of our relaxing remedies could be the perfect way to unwind and relieve the tension built up during your house move. Spend some time with us and we can soothe all those aching, tired muscles, get your nails back to normal and even repair your hair – whatever you require, we can find the right treatment to suit you.
To achieve the best results, we only use Aveda products. Every product is created using advanced plant technology and formulated with pure flower and plant essences, making your experience that little bit more unique and indulgent.
One of our most popular and refreshing treatments is the Botanical Skin Resurfacing facial. A natural alternative to micro-dermabrasion, this deep cleansing treatment will brighten your skin, smoothing the texture and increasing its radiance by removing any dirt and debris accumulated during your move. Great for people on the go, this treatment can be completed in as little as 45 minutes (at a price of £55, or £60 with one of our senior therapists), though we also offer it in longer slots of 1 hour and 15 minutes (£75, or £85 with a senior therapist) or 1 hour and 45 minutes (£95, or £105 with a senior therapist) for those that want to really indulge.
If your move has left you a little worse for wear and your muscles are feeling the strain, then our Stress Fix body massage could be just the thing you need. Not just an ordinary massage, this treatment has been clinically proven to reduce the feelings of stress by combining Swedish and deep tissue massage with foot reflexology, acupressure points and guided meditation to calm and rejuvenate. Choose from one of three options depending on the timeframe required – 45 minutes (£50, £55 with a senior therapist), 1 hour and 15 minutes (£80, £90 with a senior therapist) or 1 hour and 45 minutes (£105, £115 with a senior therapist).
Maybe you’ve really overdone it – after all, moving is hard work both mentally and physically – and you want to treat yourself properly now that you’ve unpacked and settled in to your new house? One of our most indulgent treatments, the Hot Stones massage, could be the perfect way to put the spring back in your step again. The use of warm Mexican basalt stones allows for a deeper tissue massage, really soothing and relaxing those tired, aching muscles. Available as a one hour treatment (£70, £80 with a senior therapist) for a quick fix, or a two hour treatment (£110, £120 with a senior therapist) for ultimate relaxation.
No one can move house without packing a box or ten – and all that hard work can be seriously stressful for hands and nails. If yours are looking like they could do with a little TLC then why not treat yourself to one of our Aveda hand treatments? Customised using products to suit your own specific needs, you can choose from anti-ageing, rejuvenating and nurturing or tension and stress relieving – all of which includes cuticle care, nail shaping and nail polish application, and lasts for around an hour (£40, £45 with a senior therapist).
If it’s your hair that’s in despair then worry not – our expert team of stylists can recommend a range of treatments to help restore the lustre to your locks. From nourishing botanical hair treatments that revive the condition of stressed out hair to a full re-style, colour, cut or simply a good wash and blow dry, we have something to suit everyone’s needs.
New to Rye? We offer a free consultation service to all of our customers, so you can get to know your new stylist in our relaxed and friendly environment."
