Oula signature massage

By July 22, 2015Spa

As part of our new rejuvenating one-night spa breaks, you can enjoy our new Oula signature back massage. Utterly unwind with this new treatment using our very own Oula oil.

Over a deeply relaxing 45 minutes, your therapist will carry out a carefully choreographed massage sequence to stimulate your body’s marma points and leave you with a lovely feeling of space in your body and your mind.

Once you are settled on your front on one of our heated massage couches, your therapist will begin by placing a warm flannel over the soles of your feet – an amazing sensation which will leave you feeling grounded. Next, you will feel the gorgeous sensation of warm oil being poured down your spine – truly heavenly.

This is a full back therapy, so – as well as your back itself – the massage includes your neck, the backs of your arms and legs, and even the soles of your feet.

“We call this a massage, but this treatment really goes far beyond just having a back rub,” says Gemma Bowers, Bedruthan Spa’s deputy manager.

“It includes gentle stretches to realign your joints and help you release tension that you probably didn’t even realise you were holding.”

Once realigned, a warm oil top-to-toe massage – a luscious full body sweep – will help you to let go and your therapist to find any hidden areas of tension that need attention.

Oula is Cornish for owl, the symbol of wisdom, and our team of therapists drew on their collective wisdom to create this beautiful treatment.

It uses Bedruthan Spa’s own Oula oil – a blend of 10 essential oils that is great for quietening busy minds and leaving you feeling restored, realigned and nurtured.

You’ll find Oula oil glides over your skin leaving it feeling soft and sumptuous. The wonderful cooling properties of eucalyptus and camphor will give your skin a subtle all over tingle. Sweet orange, petitgrain and melissa support your body against stress by lifting your mood and drawing a sense of calm over you. Beautiful top notes of lemongrass and grapefruit will delight your senses with their zingy aromas.

Our new spa breaks start from just £107 per person* including a one-night stay, cocktails, unlimited spa time, complementary upgrade to a sea view room plus an Oula Signature Massage or Bedruthan Facial.

Oulaoula-productsAll our Oula ingredients are ethically sourced, fairly traded and organic, and – wherever possible – Cornish. When we do buy from further afield, we source from projects that support communities to help themselves by providing a living wage, clean water wells and malaria and AIDS research. For example, our cold pressed soap uses unrefined organic shea and coco butter from a women’s co-operative in Africa.

Every little drop of every product is there to naturally and gently cleanse and condition your hair and skin. There are no fillers, no additives and no nasty chemicals. They really are 100% natural.

The natural anti-bacterial properties of the lavender and rosemary act as a preservative to keep the products fresh for 12 months after opening. It’s amazing what Mother Nature can do all by herself without any synthetic additives.

The scent is 100% natural too, and comes from a beautiful combination of essential oils:

  • Lavender for soothing, healing, relaxing,
  • Rosemary for stimulating, restorative, and
  • Patchouli for calming, grounding

We’ve made sure that production of our Oula products has been designed to minimise the negative impact on the planet with small batches being made locally to maintain the quality and minimise transportation.

The products should be fine to use if you’re pregnant or if you have eczema or psoriasis, but please do test a small patch of skin if you have particularly sensitive skin as everyone reacts differently.

Our Oula products include: shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion, body scrub and body mud. They are all available to purchase in the Bedruthan Design Shop which is open 7 days a week.
