Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat, In Staffordshire but not far from Cheshire, is offering a special treatment that caters exclusively to guests going through hormonal changes, such as perimenopause or menopause.
Due to a large number of female clients at Moddershall Oaks as well as greater awareness about the difficulties that many women face during this period of change, a group of female therapists collaborated with Tribe517 to build a truly unique experience that offers immediate relief and comfort.
Pause & Renew is a 50-minute treatment which includes a cool compress and a soothing skin mask to calm hot and sensitive skin. Comforting balms hydrate and nourish dry skin and aching limbs, hypnotic balms aid rest and sleep, and refreshing mists awaken and revive the mind. This nurturing experience includes mindfulness relaxation and deep breathing as a gentle way to ease the mind of overthinking, delivering a new peaceful harmony to mind, body and spirit.
Penny Weston, Director at Moddershall Oaks, says;
“We are always looking at ways we can enhance our spa experiences and understanding our different guests’ needs is a big part of that. With more awareness now of the emotional side of menopause, we felt it important to create a treatment that is completely holistic, working on the mind and body. We called the treatment ‘renew’ because we don’t want women to view the menopause as the end of something, but instead to approach it as a new chapter, therefore the treatment is not only about addressing physical symptoms but about providing a positive space and approach for women who are experiencing this change in their lives.”
Although this treatment has been created for guests experiencing menopause, the award-winning spa wanted the treatment to be inclusive for all guests and provides two options the guest can choose a cooling treatment or a warming treatment. Typically, those going through menopause suffer from hot flushes so the cooling elements within this treatment will relieve them however the warming effect can be just as comforting for those who want a cocooning feel.
Menopause is a subject which is finally being spoken about more openly; many UK celebrities are being more vocal about their journey with menopause, and there is a widely publicised HRT shortage in the UK. Moddershall Oaks understands the demand for treatments that target hormonal relief, and that menopause is more than physical symptoms; it can be a highly emotional, and mentally challenging time for women too. A recent report by the Fawcett Society commissioned by Channel 4 for Davina McCall’s documentary “Sex, Myths and the Menopause”, found the most commonly reported symptoms were difficulty sleeping (84%), and brain fog (73%) and anxiety or depression (69%).
