Working as a qualified Osteopath for the past 17 years has allowed me to treat people from all walks of life.  Yet, no matter what type of pain or injury they had, there was always one constant… the majority of musculo-skeletal problems occur when our muscles are fatigued, overworked and imbalanced.  I would constantly have to remind patients to take breaks, stretch and be mindful of how they moved and felt.

So it got me thinking, we all live busy hectic lives right? But what if we invested more time in ourselves and made it a priority to take care of our body and mind?  By taking some time out, we can actually be more productive in the long run as our body and mind get a little reboot.

It’s with that in mind that motivated me to sample the pampering on offer locally. We started with a wonderful facial that I’ve discovered at Earth and Skin in Mudgeeraba.

Who doesn’t love a facial? Here’s the rundown…

Called the Elemental Facial, your journey begins with the most beautiful opening ritual of warm towels to cleanse your feet and the pure tone coming from a Tibetan singing bowl marking the beginning of your interaction.

This luxurious and organic facial is customised to your skin’s needs and features a deep cleanse, individualised face mask prepared on-site combined with a dreamy scalp massage.  This is followed by a heavenly jade stone facial massage.  The mix between the coolness of the jade stone combined with the roller effect of the light pressure is something you must experience for yourself.  The benefits are said to enhance the uptake of the serum that is applied, which is an added bonus.  To finish off this facial, a potent 24K gold Mohi facial oil leaves your skin glowing.

Throughout the Elemental facial there is a strong emphasis on facial massage which I think works well to improve your local circulation, remove puffiness via the lymphatic system and relax your facial muscles.  This is not your average facial so if you’re looking for that extra ‘wow’ factor then the Elemental Facial at Earth and Skin is for you.

Make the time to value your own health, trust me you will be a better Mum, partner and friend for it.
