April massage offer

Since Spring doesn’t seem to want to show its face (it’s cold and wet here in Bordeaux), I thought I’d get you thinking warm and tropical, with a trip to Hawaii for one of our most relaxing massages – Lomi Lomi or Hawaiian massage.

Imagine yourself being massaged under a tropical sun

Picture yourself lying on a warm table with soothing, sweeping massage strokes washing like waves over you, and gentle arms rocking you gently from side to side.

Like the sound of that? Then this is the massage for you.

This particular massage uses long gliding strokes up and down the body.  The forearms and hands make rhythmical flowing movements like gentle waves washing over the body. This technique differentiates Lomi Lomi from other massages.

Hawaiian massage uses long, flowing strokes with the forearms

It can be gentle one moment, powerful the next. It is also unusual in that different parts of the body are massaged simultaneously, notably the back and the stomach. The massage also incorporates some passive manipulation and gentle stretching of arms and legs. Lomi Lomi is also known as “loving hands” because it demands a high level of concentration from the masseur and a great respect for the person being massaged with a real intention to do good.

The massage stimulates the circulation of blood, creates a sense of deep relaxation and intense well-being, promotes the circulation of energy and the expulsion of negative emotions and tensions and encourages a better self-connectivity.

Throughout the month of April, Just Massage is offering a 20% discount on 60 and 90 minute Hawaiian massages (Lomi Lomi).

40€ instead of 50€ for a 60 minute massage

52€ instead of 65€ for a 90 minute massage

Offer valid up to and including 30 April 2019.

Offer does not include gift vouchers.

Relax into Christmas with a facial massage

Relax into Spring with a facial massage

Using traditional Chinese massage, this is a wonderfully relaxing treatment. We keep a lot of tension in our face and even our scalp, in particular around the jawline and forehead – think of all that frowning and grimacing you might do during the day.


A great one-off treatment before a special event or a regular treat to escape the stresses of modern life.

This treatment can:

  • Improve skin suppleness
  • Reduce muscle tension in the face, neck and scalp
  • Help relieve stress-related symptoms
  • Tone the skin
  • Aid the renewal of dead skin cells
  • Enhance relaxation



So what are you waiting for?

Discover our Rejuvenating facial massage this month at the special price of 40€ instead of 50€ for a one-hour massage.

Valentine’s Day chocolate cake

Eggless chocolate and beetroot cake

Eggless chocolate and beetroot cake

Of course, you don’t have to wait until Saint Valentine’s day to enjoy this cake.

I’ve made it twice already and my 12-year-old son LOVES it – I

Beetroot in a cake? Yummy!

Beetroot in a cake? Yummy!

haven’t yet told him the secret ingredient is … beetroot (actually he likes beetroot, but you know what kids are like, beetroot in a cake, mum? Gross!)

This cake also has no eggs in it, which is great if, like me, you sometimes have a suger-craving but no eggs to make a cake (OK, you have to have a packet of beetroot in the fridge, which is probably less likely than not having eggs, but still…).

You could probably make a Vegan version of this by replacing the natural yoghurt by a soya one, and the milk by water in the icing. Not sure how it would alter the taste though, let me know if you try that (can’t stand soya-based yogs myself so I won’t be trying it)

Anyway, this recipe comes from the December 2014 issue of Vegetarian Christmas from the BBC Good Food team (

It’s very moist and squidgy, and healthier than your average chocolate cake. Try it and see.

SERVES 10-12 PREP 20 mins + cooling COOK 1 hr

100 ml rapeseed oil, plus extra for greasing

175g (drained weight) packed beetroot (not in vinegar)

175g dark soft brown sugar

200g self-raising flour

1 tbsp baking powder

50g cocoa powder

200g natural yoghurt

2 tsp vanilla extract


100g icing sugar

50g dark chocolate (at least 80% cocoa solids)

1 tbsp cocoa powder

3 tbsp milk

dark chocolate shavings to serve (optional)

1 Heat oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4. Grease and line a deep 20 cm springform cake tin with baking parchment. Tip the beetroot into a food processor and whizz to a purée. Add the remaining cake ingredients, along with 1/4 tsp salt and blend until well combined. Scrape the mixture into the cake tin, level the surface and bake for 50 mins-1 hr or until a skewer comes out clean.

2 Leave the cake to cool in the tin while you make the icing. Put the ingredients in a small saucepan, heat and whisk until smooth. Cool for 20 mins.

3 Flip the cake onto a wire rack, flat side up. Pour over the icing and leave to cool completely. Sprinkle with dark chocolate shavings if using, then serve.

Chocolate kisses for Saint Valentine’s

Give out some chocolatey kisses on Valentine’s Day with this quick lip balm recipe made with cocoa butter.

It comes from my favourite  homemade beauty recipe site,  AromaZone. 

It’s a French site, though part of it is translated into English – unfortunately not the huge collection of free beauty recipes.

Don’t worry, I’ve translated this one for you:

3 g cocoa butter

3 g vanilla-infused oil

1,5 g mimosa floral wax (or use beeswax, it’s easier to get hold of)

Melt all the ingredients together  (in a bowl in hot water), mix, pour into a small pot or jar, set in the freezer.

Apply to lips and get kissing!


November massage offer

Running a bit late this month as I was enjoying the sea air in Brittany last week!

Feeling refreshed but did lots of walking so thought a foot massage would be a good thing for you to try out this November.

Lots of people will instantly go “Oh No, you’re not touching my feet”, but you don’t know what you’re missing out on!!

Let us help you change your mind by offering a special discount on a lovely massage, dedicated exclusively to your tired tootsies.

A foot massage relaxes the mind and body

Our revitalising foot massage uses traditional Chinese massage which believes the meridian network connects all tissues, organs and cells in our body.

The aim of our foot massage is to create space by relaxing the foot so that the energy of the Earth (yin) can penetrate the foot and nourish the legs and trunk.

We are on our feet a lot – even in a sitting position they are under pressure.

We cramp our feet into shoes and socks which sometimes rub and give blisters, hard skin and calluses.

It’s high time you pampered them!

A foot massage stimulates the reflex zones in the foot and as such can have a positive effect on the whole body. So give your feet a treat, you’ll feel the benefits straight away.

For scientific evidence of the benefits, read this article about how an aromatherapy foot massage can ease stress.

Throughout the month of November we are offering a 20% discount :

28€ instead of 35€ for a 40 minute Revitalising foot massage.

Valid up to and including November 30th 2018.

Offer does not include gift vouchers.

Here at Just Massage the most requested massage is by far for your poor backs –  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.
