Perfect pampering with a home massage


Thought for the day

Watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban reminded me of this quote from Sirius Black (thank you JK Rowling

How true.

Homemade facial steam

After cleansing your face, pour hot water into a large bowl, drape a towel over your head and let your skin absorb the steam for just five minutes.

It’s the  ideal thing for opening up pores to help draw out embedded dirt.

For an aromatic rejuvenating steam add some garden herbs such as rosemary, thyme, lavender or mint to the water.

Cucumber roll for eyes

Pamper your eyes with this easy beauty treatment.

Grate some cucumber and place it in a line along a piece of gauze, then roll the gauze up to get a “sushi” roll long enough to lie across both eyes.

Press firmly against the eyes and leave for 10-15 minutes.


Reminder massage offer

Do you have tension in your back?

Our backs are one of the tensest areas in the body – all that sitting in front of computers, holding phones between ear and shoulder, carrying heavy bags around, wearing high heels…the list is endless when it comes to the strain we put our backs under on a daily basis.

No wonder then that a back massage is sheer heaven for most of us, as all those muscular tensions are eased away by a professional massage therapist.

Here at Just Massage the most requested massage is by far for your poor backs – and there are a lot of knotty people out there!

So set aside an hour this month to have your muscles soothed in our expert hands, and at a discount too!

40€ instead of 50€ for a one-hour back massage.

This thorough massage works on the back, neck and scalp and relieves accumulated tension in these areas. It uses techniques from Traditional Chinese massage, or TuiNa.

Valid up to and including 31st August 2017.

Offer does not apply to gift vouchers.

Nail detox

Nail polish overload?

For beautifully white, stain-free, varnish-free nails this summer, rub your naked nails (on top and underneath) with half a fresh lime, then soak in some dissolved bicarbonate of soda for a few minutes.

Your nails will be like new!

Smile, smile, smile

Smiling uses up to 26 muscles, so there really is no excuse for not giving your face some exercise.

Go on, get smiling, it might even make you feel better!

Smile and the world smiles with you, so the saying goes…So have a “smile” day!

Pick a day of the week to be your “smile day” and smile at everyone you meet. Ok, in general, people can tell the difference between a real smile and a fake one, so don’t force it too much, but ten to one, by forcing a smile to begin with, you’ll end up doing it naturally.

Look people in the eyes when you smile and use your whole face – you can see a smile in your eyes.

Smiles are infectious – see the reaction you get, I bet you’ll be spreading smiles all day (read this poem if you don’t believe me!).

And since I’ve got you smiling, why not up the game and start laughing.

Make yourself laugh at least three times a day. Looking in the mirror and pulling funny faces may do it for you. Or watching a comedy on TV. Or thinking back to some funny experiences you’ve had, or watching old videos of the kids. Whatever works for you.

And finally, lighten up.

A lot of things in life cause frustration but most of it isn’t really that important. So what, if the driver behind you cuts you up, as long as no accidents were caused? So what, if you missed your bus and had to wait 10 minutes for the next one? So what, if your hair’s a mess/you’ve got a spot on your chin/your bum’s a bit wobbly?

Practise shrugging off life’s little irritations and allow yourself to SMILE.
