Pure Seven Signature Massage uses blends of oils from organic brand ESPA.
Using a combination of oils and products from the organic ESPA range in conjunction with Balinese massage techniques, hot stones, realignment stretches and scalp massage, the 90-minute Pure Seven Signature Massage melts away the stresses and strains of daily life. If you’re already on holiday and in relaxation mode… well, things can only get better!
The massage begins with long, sweeping movements using the ESPA restorative bath & body oil – one of the brand’s signature blends made from palmarosa, sweet orange, geranium and lavender essential oils. This aromatic blend serves to rebalance the mind, body and soul simultaneously –aromatherapy serves to quieten the mind, while the rich, restorative oil itself nourishes the skin and soothes any sore muscles.
As your therapist works their way from the tips of your toes to the nape of your neck, you will begin to feel subtle changes in the pressure and temperature of both the massage and the oil, as warm oil is also poured gently over your body and delicately massaged with hot stones. At times, it is impossible to tell where the therapist’s hands end and the stones begin – the trick is to simply let go and let them do the work for you.
The therapist will realign your arms, legs, head and neck through a series of very gentle stretching techniques – no exertion required. The sensation of stretching is the perfect complement to the rhythmic massage movements, removing all physical pressure from the body and allowing you to enter a profound state of relaxation.
The final stage of the massage occurs when you’ve turned onto your back. After again completing the toe-to-top routine, attention is turned to your face and scalp. A gentle facial massage helps the skin restore its elasticity, followed by a deeply relaxing scalp massage using apricot-based ESPA pink hair & scalp mud to condition and nourish both your hair and the delicate skin of your scalp – a finishing touch that is almost like a lullaby, sending you off to sleep.
The quiet sounds of a grounding chime bring you back into reality and yet it’s a new reality you are returning to; one where you feel blissfully calm, at peace and relaxed. If massages are an art, then the therapists at Pure Seven are indeed the ‘masters’ – and the Pure Seven Signature Massage is their masterpiece.
