What's New In Wellness This June?
New Wellness Getaway (with a difference)
When did a rural country festival give you the chance to select from 300 specially curated events around wellness, arts, yoga, wild swimming, fitness (and more)? Well now The Big Retreat located in the picturesque, vast greenery of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, is home to a huge event designed to offer something for everyone (and the kids), featuring Glastonbury-esque stages from ‘The Soul Space,’ ‘Fitness Field,’ to ‘Darwin’s Den,’ and ‘The Chef’s Kitchen.’ Think spiritual craft workshops, ice baths, tapping workshops, inner child insights, hot tubs, facial yoga and a whole lot more. Don’t miss out.
New waste free period care
Is it actually possible to estimate the amount of microplastic waste that ends up in landfill from flushing period products each month? Now we won’t have to compromise the planet at ‘that time of the month.’ The new Fluus is the pioneering first fully ‘flushable,’ zero waste period pad product – pads that dissolve in water not your underwear. Created from 70% plant-based materials, with tree sap used instead of thermoplastic glue, as adhesive, Fluus products are fully absorbent due to plant fibre materials and the biodegradable polymer core. Hassle free periods each month whilst protecting the planet. Win win.
New Personal Living Space Book
It’s easy to forget how much home environment impacts our life, energy and wellbeing – it can also be overwhelming making sense of the ancient notions of Feng shui and how to create a positive interior space. Find Yourself At Home: A conscious approach to Shaping Your space and Your Life by certified Feng Shui consultant, Emily Grosvenor, is just the book for beginners or those who have been attempting to reshape their home environment for a while. The author creates an easy to follow, practical guide to support positive behaviour, personal development and your goals.
New Body contouring treatment
Evolve X is the exciting new body contouring technology from In Mode UK that achieves next level results in fat reduction, skin tightening and muscle tone across body parts. Dr Dev Patel, leading cosmetic doctor, explains of the new technology, ‘it works by combining temperature controlled bipolar radio frequency energy (RF) with electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), which delivers a synergistic layering treatment and consistent transformative results for our patients.’ Practitioners can focus on specific areas from abdomen, waist, buttocks, arms and thighs – you will notice a difference immediately to skin and body tone but no down time is needed after the treatment so you can even fit in the session in a lunch break.
