Slow breath. Slow time…reconnect to nature’s rhythm.
Our first Wildsmith Spa is at The Bothy, Heckfield Place, Hampshire. It is a space to reconnect with nature. Nestled in the arboretum which was so beautifully choreographed in the 1860’s by William Walker Wildsmith, these very trees now inspire our products, treatments and healing philosophy.
Wildsmith honours, protects and celebrates life’s rhythms, rooted in the belief that a person’s vitality and positive mental state are paramount in achieving recovery, repair and balance.
Wildsmith Wellbeing is a prescription of treatments, mindful movement, food, and education with each guest at the centre of a personalised experience.
The Bothy will gently open its doors in 2022.
A preview of two of the treatments that will form part of our complete offering.
RADICAL BOTANY FACIAL
The Wildsmith Radical Botany Facial promises an all-encompassing approach to skin health. Our potent combination of scientific and botanical formulas, our expert facialists and our technical approach will ensure immediate results such as toned, smoother, plump and radiant skin and the ongoing benefits of skin barrier protection and hydration.
To enhance the powerful formulations in our skincare we used a combined approach of traditional and advanced facial massage techniques including:
Advanced myofascial release to eliminate tension in the fascia and help with stimulation of collagen and elastin
Acupressure to help tone skin by stimulating facial muscles
Lymphatic drainage to help reduce inflammation
Craniosacral holds and breathwork help to calm you by stimulating the parasympathetic system.
105 minutes and 60 minutes.
Inspired by the circadian rhythms of nature, our team of wellness practitioners provide a bespoke reset starting with an holistic consultation including a grounding footbath ritual. This focuses on kinesiology principles and mechanisms of movement to help reveal the body’s requirements. A therapeutic massage sequence is applied using Wildsmith Skin essential oil blends specifically formulated for the time of day.
For vitality to energise and revitalise
For purity to achieve equilibrium and rebalance
For stillness to ground and restore
Through craniosacral holds (promoting a meditative state of deep relaxation) abdominal massage (to release tension, stimulate digestion and boost the immune system) and foot zone reflex therapy to spark up the energy pathway.
Expect to leave reconnected and in balance.
135 minutes and 105 minutes.
