The ultimate treat for feet combining a traditional foot massage with a dry and wet scrub which removes dead skin leaving your feet silky smooth.
The focus is on the lower leg, from the knee, moving down to the foot. Firstly, the calf, a part of the body which particularly suffers from fatigue, is massaged. This is followed by an acupressure foot massage. Traditional Chinese reflexology, focusing on pressure points on the feet, has long been used to relieve pain, improve circulation and the immune system. It is believed the condition of all body parts are affected by zones of the feet. For example, the toes, which connect with the head and neck. The second and third toes link to the eyes, while the others correspond with teeth, sinuses and top of the head. The lower part of the little toe connects with the ears.
The third part of the treatment is a pampering session for your feet. A dry and wet foot scrubber cleans and removes the dead skin. The feet are then wrapped in a nutrient rich scrub of coffee and fresh orange juice. Gentle circular motions remove dead dry skin, revealing the new healthy-looking skin underneath. This scrub exfoliates as well as having anti-inflammatory properties.
General note information about these two ingredients used in skin and body treatments. The caffeine in coffee is rich in antioxidants, making it effective in the fight against premature skin aging conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots and fine lines. Scrubbing with coffee can temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and increase collagen production. The health benefits of oranges have long been recognized. High in vitamin C and antioxidants, orange juice strengthens the immune system, detoxifies, aids digestion and promotes healthy skin. It can even help alleviate acne as it contains properties to help fight free radicals. Orange juice can make skin look younger, prevent wrinkles, brightens skin and can be used as a skin toner.
As the name of this therapy suggests, your feet will enjoy a complete ‘face lift’.
