How to spoil your girlfriend

How to spoil your girlfriend

8 ways to spoil your girlfriend with a massage

Massage is super super easy, and really doesn’t take a lot of effort. If you would like to get the brownie points of massaging your

Easy steps to spoil your girlfriend

How to spoil your girlfriend with a massage

partner without ending up with sore hands, this is how you do it.

  1. The easiest way to spoil your girlfriend with a massage is to do a head massage. And make it easy on yourself so you aren’t reaching up and getting sore arms in the process. Ask your partner to either sit in front of you on the floor and massage that way, or alternatively lay their head in your lap and relax while you massage. So how do you do it? There are some easy techniques that they will LOVE. The first is to put the tips of your fingers spread out on the scalp and then firmly and slowly rub the scalp in small circles. Try to keep the pads of your fingers in the one spot when doing this as it will feel better. The key here is to do it slowly, if you rub fast then it will only irritate your  partner. Slow down, the slower the better, less is more. After a minute change the positions of your finger tips.
  2. Feet! Super easy, but remember to keep it firm or it will feel like tickling instead. Rub your knuckles up the inside of the foot, massage the toes, gently massage around the ankle. Use the reflexology thumb walk (see diagram) for the soles of the feet. Just remember to keep it firm and see what she likes! If there is something she really likes, do more of that.
  3. Calves – if she is on her feet all day, and especially if she wears heels, this is a really great way to massage. Buy a scented massage oil from your chemist (or Ripple does sell massage oils online) or at worst case get some sunflower oil from your supermarket (this makes a great massage oil as long as its fresh). Sit her in a comfortable chair, maybe with a glass of wine, and slowly and firmly massage
    Reflexology Thumb Walk

    her calf muscles. Often just a squeezing motion is a great way to relax these muscles, or even gently rubbing your hands up and down the lower legs.

  4. Hands – this is the easiest and best part it can be done anywhere! A nice gesture that let her know that she is loved. Gently massage each finger, massage the palm of the hand, and then gently on the back of your hand, rub your thumbs up the centre of each knuckle, starting from the knuckle and moving up towards the body.
  5. Ears – yep, I know this one sounds weird but most people love it. In a circular direction, start at the lobes and work your way up.
  6. Arms – does your girlfriend sit in front of a computer for much of the day? Might be that her forearms are really tight. Take your forefinger and thumb, thumb goes down the top of the forearm (starting at the elbow) and fore finger down the bottom, and “strip” the forearm. Use just a little bit of oil but not too much. This feels sensational.
  7. The all time favourite, the shoulders, neck and upper back. This is usually where people hold tension. Massage firmly the neck, especially down the sides. Use a little bit of oil so you don’t “burn” the skin. Do firm
    Couples Massage

    Couples Massage

    massage into the shoulder muscles and especially the trapeziums from the neck to the shoulder. If you get your girlfriend to sit in front of you, this will make it easier, and you can use your weight to do the massage, rather than your hands.

  8. Get a massage yourself and during the massage try to remember some of the things the therapist did that you loved. Or sometimes there are day courses you can do that teach you the basics of massage. All good ways to learn easy techniques to spoil your girlfriend. Alternatively, you can book a couples massage  with two therapists at the same time. These don’t have to be expensive, but are a nice way to relax together.

Spring

August 4th, 2014 by Alison Shaw

Spring

I love love love Spring! It’s my absolute favourite time of the year. And it is this time of the year when I start thinking of throwing off

Spring

Spring

my winter skin, doing a detox, and getting ready for the beach.

Now I’m not really a diet sort of girl. Am happiest eating great foods and spoiling my body with delicious spa, massage and beauty treatments. I believe in being kind to my body, and in Spring that is the time I am nicest to myself.

So what is my Springtime routine?

Super easy, pampering, caring for myself and indulgent.

  1. When the weather starts to get a little warmer in Spring (that is when I don’t have to put on a heater as soon as I get up or put on a fire at night) then I begin to take long walks daily. Usually around the rainforests where I live, or if I am down by the coast, along the ocean or on the sand. For me this is the best form of exercise, gentle, relaxing whilst still getting the blood flowing. The extra benefit is that when walking on sand, my bare feet get a great exfoliation at the same time.
  2. Detox – yep well detox Ali style. This isn’t one of those super strenuous detox diets that only last three days, but more of a cut  back on the mud cake and sometimes substitute water melon or fresh mango. I still have the occasional glass of wine, but only with food and only the one. And as for coffee, I stick to just one in the morning if I have to, and have herbal teas in between. As it warms up I find I am less inclined to eat big meaty meals and start heading towards the salads. An I never count calories, ever. Food is meant to be enjoyed. But one thing that I absolutely do not do is buy larger
    Spring rejuvenation

    Spring rejuvenation

    clothes. When the jeans start to feel really tight, then I don’t go up a size, I put them on the tightness is a really great way to remind me during the day that I might need to lose a kilo or two.

  3. Pamper pamper pamper. Yes I know I own a massage company, and yes I’m like the plumber that doesn’t do his own plumbing. I have to force myself to make the time to schedule in treatments like anyone else. So in Spring I book two weeks in advance, not just with Ripple but other day spas as well, a wide range of treatments. From facials to massage to nails to waxing. And as I’m so conscientious, I always show up. I usually book two months worth at a time. Even if just getting my eyebrows waxed, this is a great way for me to put myself first. Full list of Spring day spa services are here
  4. Training – yes with my martial arts trainer, Sensei Carl who I have been training with for almost 18 years. Once a week, I feel the pain and hurt. It’s only once a week and the endorphin rush I get afterwards is worth all the sweat and hard work.
  5. Massage – not sure why but my weight loss really picks up if I get regular massages. I think it maybe because it really lifts a sluggish lymphatic system and removes toxins. Either way, its my favourite way to relax, de stress and take care of my body that gives me so much.
  6. Sleep!!! Yes I am very protective of my eight hours every night. Guard it jealously.
  7. Down time by yourself – my favourite thing of all time? Going to the movies by myself. Some think its a little weird but I love it!! Afterwards I feel so refreshed. So this may not be your favourite thing to do by yourself, so find something that you really enjoy doing alone and make sure you do it regularly.

There are lots more ideas on what to do for yourself during the Spring on the Ripple site under our  Detox page. There are recipes for juices, detox diets (if you are more serious about this than me) and lots more. Or give us a buzz on 0438 567 906.

Beauty Salons Melbourne

August 4th, 2014 by Alison Shaw

Beauty Salons Melbourne

Here are some of our top beauty tips! Make the most of your beauty treatments …

Melbourne Beauty Salons

Beauty Salons Melbourne

  1. Book early! To ensure you get the day and time you want, try to book your therapist early so that you can then relax and enjoy. Especially on weekends, most beauty salons in Melbourne tend to book out quickly on Saturday afternoons, so get in quick.
  2. Ask questions! Find out exactly what a pedi spa entails, one salons definition may not be the same as yours.
  3. Give your self time to relax afterwards and before hand. If you can avoid rushing around either end of your treatment.
  4. Get there nice and early. Nuff said.
  5. Ask about specials… salons often have great packages that can give you a range of treatments at a great price
  6. If you are booking for a hens party, try them out first
  7. Ask about the qualifications of your therapists, and if getting a massage if they do health fund rebates.
  8. If getting a facial, don’t wear makeup. Whilst the therapist will take it off, you will get a deeper cleanse if you go with clear skin to begin with.
  • Facials – there are many different types of facials you can book at any beauty salon in Melbourne, and mostly come in two categories, cleansing and nourishing.
  • Body Scrubs – also many different types, from salt scrubs to the more nourishing ones.
  • Nails – if there is a particular nail colour you like, you can take it with you and ask the Melbourne beauty salon to use it instead of one of their own.

    Mobile Beauty Melbourne

    Melbourne CBD Beauty

  • If wanting french nails or shellac, ask before you go. You may need to book a longer period of time. If you book an express manicure expecting french nails, then it is unlikely you will get a good result.
  • Waxing – exfoliate before you go and you will end up with a better and less painful result.
  • Makeup – one of the best investments I made was to get my make up done by a professional artist. I picked up lots of tips and tricks that I now use daily in my beauty routines.
  • Massage – be clear on what you want from your massage. Many beauty therapists aren’t great at doing deep tissue or remedial massage, so you will need to book a remedial massage therapist for these styles. If you are after a relaxation massage, then beauty therapists tend to be really good.
  • There are often many different styles available so sometimes it is good to be adventurous and try something that you haven’t tried before. Hot stone massage can be a delicious style of massage in the winter, whilst a detox massage can be really good in the spring time. Play around with different styles and find the ones you love.
  • If looking for a really great massage therapist, try to find one that offers health fund rebates. These often have higher levels of training and more years of experience. Some beauty salons Melbourne hire therapists with minimal or no qualifications or experience and this is a good way to sort out those businesses that are serious about what they do and therapists that know what they are doing.
  • If booking a group, book early, and ask about discounts and receipts at booking.
  • Stay with the same company if you get great service. There are many day spas and beauty businesses out there, so if you find a good one, stick with them.
  • Consider trying a mobile beauty salon. These are a great option that allow you to relax afterwards and save you the trouble of driving, parking and traffic. They are often the same or similar price, but come with the convenience of the therapist coming to you.

Ripple comes to you all Melbourne with mobile beauty services. Give us a buzz on 0438 567 906 or book online for our latest beauty specials. We would love to pamper you!

Massage Hervey Bay

Imagine after a stressful day at work, you think to yourself, “I wouldn’t mind a bit of massage” but first thing that comes to your mind after that is traffic jams, faulty

Hervey Bay Day Spa

Remedial, relaxation massage and beauty in your Hervey Bay Accommodation

satellite systems, car park wars and pain of having to get up after your treatment only to face it all again and undo all the relaxing you just paid for. Well Ripple Massage Hervey Bay is the premier day spa that brings everything to you. You don’t have to even leave the house, or set up a single thing. No, we at Ripple Massage Hervey Bay will do it. We will bring the massage table.

We will bring the products. Heck, we will even bring the music. You don’t have to lift a finger or beep a car horn to book into your luxury day spa. Ripple Massage Hervey Bay specializes in traditional massage styles like relaxation, deep tissue and hot stone. Ripple Massage Hervey Bay also offers amazing luxury massages like our indulgent honey massage, our delicious chocolate massage or our Hawaiian Kahuna massage. Ripple Massage Hervey Bay also offers beauty treatments all in the comfort of your own home.

There is nothing me indulgent than having day to you when you can just relax and look after yourself. Your body and mind need a chance to have a day off to recover and recharge itself. Have you ever had a stressful run at work, where you just reach the end of your tether and you break into tears, or you snap at someone or spend the whole drive home screaming at random drivers?

Well that’s what happens if you don’t take time out to look after your mental well being. If you are not looking after yourself in the mind and spirit, it will start to show on your body with strains and tension that you can never seem to rid of and we at Ripple Massage Hervey Bay want to help.

Ripple Massage Hervey Bay have some great tips on distressing and looking after yourself so you don’t find yourself having an Armageddon style breakdown.

One of the first things we suggest here at Ripple Massage Hervey Bay is to make sure that you are getting enough sleep. Sleep is essential to recharging your mind. It’s when your body rests and recuperates and turns your mind off from all the stress. If you are having trouble sleeping, try having

Mobile Massage Hervey Bay

Relax in Hervey Bay with Ripple Massage

herbal teas before you go to bed, or reading a novel of your choice. Try not to drink coffee or eat too much before bed. Also try not do any work just before and when choosing a book, pick something that interests you and is as far away from your job or whatever is stressing you, so you can just switch off and forget for just a moment.

Another tip from Ripple Massage Hervey Bay is to exercise. Simply going for a walk or run, or Pilates class can switch your mind off and clear it out, if only even for that hour. It also ups your oxygen intake and stretches out muscles which may ease any tension in your mind as well.

Get regular massages from Ripple Massage Hervey Bay so that you relieve any tension and stress that gets stored in your muscles. The feeling of the toxins being released from your muscles can be some of the most therapeutic treatments for stress that you can find.

Talk to someone about it. Whether it is your significant other, a family member, a friend or a counselor, sometimes it is good to just lay it all out on someone else to either clear your mind or get another perspective on the situation. It’s also important, if you are confiding in a family member or friend that you don’t overload your relationship with any issues your having. Speak to them briefly, gets some advice, and then throw it away and enjoy their company. It’s important to speak to people but it’s also equally important to just leave work at work, and focus on other things that bring your happiness!

Massage Coolangatta

Who wants to have their own luxury day spa in their house whenever they want it? Its just screams luxury and lavishness, having a therapist giving you treatments in

Coolangatta massage and day spa

Beauty massage and day spa in Coolangatta

your own place.

Who wants to drive to their spa appointments anymore? Not me! I would rather relax and have someone come to me, and then let me relax in my cosy couch once the treatments are done. But doesn’t this mean you have to pay an arm and a leg for this type of treatment? Not with Ripple Massage Coolangatta.

At Ripple Massage Coolangatta we bring everything to you at a great price with amazing, friendly and experience therapists. Ripple Massage Coolangatta offers amazing massage treatments but we also specialize in facials and other beauty treatments.

We have yummy face masks to suit al skin types and our therapists will include gorgeous head massages and face massages into the mix, to give you an all round royal experience.

At Ripple Massage Coolangatta , we have had a lot of people ask over the years, what their skin type is and what are the best products or techniques suited for their skin type.

Well the best way to find out your skin type is to examine your skin.

What size are your pores around your nose and cheeks?
Is your skin oily in the mornings and which areas?
Does my skin get itchy after washing my face?
How does your foundation look after a few hours of wear?

Our therapists from Ripple Massage Coolangatta advise that those with dry skin would most likely have no pores or very minimal pores visible on their face. They would never be oily in the mornings, would get itchy and feel tight on their face after washing, and your foundation probably clings to dry skin.

If this is you, there are particular products that Ripple Massage Coolangatta suggests you should look out for and tips to stick to.

Marine parade Coolangatta

Coolangatta day spa with Ripple

Cleansers should always be a cream or milk consistency and your moisturizer should be reasonably thick. Your foundation should also be cream or liquid based and you should look for words like “luminous”, “glowing” and “brightening”.

I would also avoid any heavy setting powders on top of your foundation. A moisturizing primer would be your best friend. It is important to keep your skin hydrated and moisturize and dry skin can sometimes age quicker than oily skin.

Our therapists at Ripple Massage Coolangatta states that those with oily skin would most likely have large pores on their nose and cheeks. They would always be oily and shiny in the mornings, and your foundation would either also look shiny or would have slid off your face earlier in the day.

If this is you, you are pretty lucky because your skin will stay plumper from the oil and therefore retain its youth for longer. Ripple Massage Coolangatta suggests you should look for gel or foaming cleansers, and light weight moisturizers. You should always moisturize even if your skin feels oily enough, as if you don’t, your skin will over compensate the dryness its feeling by producing MORE oil, and you don’t want that. You should look for foundations with that are in stick form or mousse form and look for words like “mattifying”, “long lasting” and “oil free”. You should also set your foundation with a setting powder and use a silicon or matting primer.

Those with normal are lucky because you can use any skincare product or makeup without any hassles really.

These days you will find that most skincare lines and most makeup brands have different products or lines dedicated to each skin type, making it easier for everyone and Ripple Massage Coolangatta loves it when things are made easier, just like booking your treatments with us!

Suffolk Park

Have you not been feeling your best lately? Has your skin been feeling tired and angry? Why not book in a facial! Ripple Massage Suffolk Park is the

Suffolk Park hotel

Suffolk Park Accommodation and Massage

premiere day spa that comes to you and offers luxurious day spa massage and beauty treatments in your own home or accommodation. Ripple Massage Suffolk Park has amazing facial masks that will suit every skin type so that you can have glowing skin again. You can even combine of the Ripple Massage Suffolk Park facials with one our luxurious massages like the honey massage which with the honey is great at cleaning and moisturising the skin as well with the massage helping out sore and strained muscles.

Here at Ripple Massage Suffolk Park we have previously spoken about how important it is to look after your skin. Skin is your largest organ and so your skin is a gateway for others to see how the rest of body and organs are holding up.

At Ripple Massage Suffolk Park we have mentioned how important drinking water is and it is probably the most important of all the tips that I have. Another tip is to always remove your makeup. We at Ripple Massage Suffolk Park don’t know how many times we have made the mistake of going to sleep or having a little nap with my make up on. Every time without fail we regret it because we either end up with mascara in my eyes, or makeup on our pillows or even worse, breaking out in acne from the build up on our faces.

The best habit that we at Ripple Massage Suffolk Park think you can get into, is starting a skin care routine suited to your skin type. The best way to tell what type of skin you have is to check how your skin looks and feels first thing in the morning. Do you have dry skin that feels tight with no shine what so ever, and maybe the odd flake of skin? Then you most likely have dry skin. Do you wake up with a shiny face with oil build up? Then you will probably have oily skin. Do you wake up with dry cheeks and shiny nose and chin? Then you would have combination skin. Those lucky ones who wake up fresh as a daisy with no skin concerns would have normal skin.

Once you have worked out your skin type, you need to find products suited to your skin type.

We come to you all Byron Bay and Suffolk Park region

Massage at Suffolk Park Byron Bay

Ripple Massage Suffolk Park believe that cleaning your skin every day is very important because your skin picks up dirt, oil and bacteria constantly and because the skin on your face is so delicate, it reacts more than the rest of your body, and therefore breaks out, goes red or flakes at a greater rate.

The best routine to get into is very basic and consists of three products. Ripple Massage Suffolk Park suggests a cleanser to wash your makeup off and to clean your skin, a toner to balance your skin and a moisturiser to of course, moisturise your skin. Once you can get yourself into a routine, then you will see you skin improve!

Some other great tips here at Ripple Massage Suffolk Park to remember are to cleanse your face twice before moving onto the toner. Once for taking the makeup off, and again to actually clean the skin. Also don’t over moisturise, just a 10c piece on your fingers and then pat into your face and neck.

body. Skin is a great indicator of healthy you really are.

Dull, tired skin can show that you are stressed or partaking in unhealthy habits such as smoking and excessive drinking. Marked skin can show the after effects of acne breakouts which can either mean stress, hormones or again, unhealthy habits. Or red skin can show allergies and irritants.

You can be having a bad hair day, bad fashion day and bad day in general, but as long as your skin is glowing, no one will ever know! So Ripple Massage Rosebud has some great tips in keeping your skin looking healthy and also how to look after your skin.

The main thing which Ripple Massage Rosebud always advises, and you are probably over hearing about it, is drinking lots of water. About 6-8 glasses of day is more than enough and remember to count any coffee, tea, juice or milk that you drink, because they all contain water. You should be having most of your water intake as pure water or naturally flavored water though.

Ripple Massage Rosebud loves herbal teas, and teas like green teas, peppermint teas, lemon teas and camomile teas are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to tea these days. Tea has become some sort of a “trendy” thing to do, with tea houses popping up everywhere and Ripple Massage Rosebud loves it. If you pop down to your local supermarket, there are shelves of different flavours, both fruity and spicy that will sure to suit everyone’s palette.

Another way to drink water is by flavoring it yourself. One our favorite flavor combinations at Ripple Massage Rosebud is mint, cucumber and limes all chopped up in a glass and then topped with chilled water. Keep a large jug of this combination in the fridge so that you have it on hand all the time. You can try many combinations like watermelon and mint, or orange and lime.

Try your favorite fruits in your next jug of water (citrus seems to work best) and see how much more water you drink. We always carry a water bottle around with us at Ripple Massage Rosebud, and we like to flavour ours with a little lemon and mint leaves. It makes it so much easier to get through our daily intakes here at Ripple Massage Rosebud!

anything like me, then chocolate is your weakness and if there is a way for me to be totally immersed in chocolate, then count me in! Not to mention, the cute gift box with yummy chocolate goodies inside for you to enjoy later, because let’s admit, chocolate on the inside is just as good as chocolate on the outside.

Our delicious chocolate is mixed in a special way with aromatherapy oils to create a unique and simply divine scent, along with the benefits of our oils and of course massage.

Our Robina Day Spa also has full beauty services that come to wherever you are, with nails (manicure and pedicure), deluxe facials, spray tanning, tinting and waxing.

Touch is the most important sense. Massage is the art of touch, a therapy that has deep healing powers for both mind and body. It comforts and reassures, releases muscular tension, boosts the circulation, and makes us feel nurtured and loved which is important to us at Ripple  Robina Massage.

It soothes an overwrought nervous system, while sophisticated methods of stroking, pressing and pummeling unearthed buried tensions, melt away aches and pains, flush out toxins, and refine muscle tone. Nothing, it seems, works like quite like it for boosting energy and vitality!

The origins of massage like in the East, namely in China and Japan. Shiatsu, acupressure and reflexology, were brought from the East by therapists studying these ancient and highly effective techniques, and have been adopted in the West by alternative practitioners like us at Ripple Massage Robina. India also has a strong tradition in massage. Head massage is part of daily life in most Indian regions and is practiced even by the most humble barber, and we at Ripple Massage Robina think it should be brought into our culture too!

Surprisingly, Swedish massage also originated in the East. It was developed by a gymnast and physiologist who traveled to China in the 19th Century and combined his own western ideas with those of eastern massage. Eastern philosophies tend to be based on the notion of the flow energy and massage is the perfect medium for the unblocking of built-up energy so that the body can be rebalanced and heal itself.

Here at Ripple Massage Robina we like to cater your massage to your own needs. We will be able to assess your body and any tensions within the first couple of minutes and then offer you the best treatment for you. We love to see the look of complete relaxation and calmness when we finish our treatments, so why not give us today so that you can experience this too?

The massage therapists in Robina will bring everything to your house, so you don’t have to leave the house, or lift a finger. You can just relax and enjoy the pampering.

One of Ripple’s specialties is reflexology.

Perhaps you can have someone come and do some reflexology on you!

The therapy of reflexology is based on the idea that health-giving energy flows around the body. When this energy flows freely, physical and mental well being is maintained. If the energy flow is blocked or stagnant, we can become unwell or unhappy.

Gentle pressure applied to points on the feet- known as reflexes- can be used to stimulate energy flow and release any blockages. The feet contain a “map” of the entire body: every organ and body structure relates to a precise point on the top, side or sole of the foot.

For example, the brain is connected to the top of the big toe, while the bladder point is at the base of the heel.

When an area of the body is out of balance, the related reflex will be tender to the touch.

We will gently work a tender point, which helps to break down deposits and restore energy flow through the zone. The massage action also has the effect of stimulating the circulation of blood and lymph to the area and feels highly relaxing.

The areas that correspondent are as follows:

Your head is represented in your toes. The right big toe corresponds to the right of your head and the left big toe to the left of your head. In addition, the eight smaller toes hold the reflexes to specific parts of your head, such as sinuses and ears, and these can be used for fine-tuning imbalances in these areas. Your neck reflexes can be found in the “necks” of your toes!

The reflex area for your spine can be found on the inner sole of your feet, the same area as where your abdomen. Your chest reflex can be found in the balls of your feet, and on the same area on top of your feet. These also house the reflexes to the air passages, lungs, breasts, heart, thymus gland and shoulders. The lower edge of the chest area is represented on the feet by the diaphragm reflex which runs across the base of the balls of the feet.

The whole of your heel all around your foot contains the reflexes to your pelvic area: they lie on the sole and the sides of your heel and also across the top of your ankle.

The limbs are clearly represented on the outer edge of your foot but also, and most particularly, on the corresponding upper or lower limb.

Working along holistic principals, reflexology takes into account body, mind and spirit as they are all interrelated. Whatever happens to you will affect all levels of your being, whether you notice or nor. If you feel under pressure or stressed, the effect on your body will be detrimental, as your muscles remain tense and taut, constricting the circulation and nerves and compromising their function.

Reflexology works quite simply and in a highly effective, efficient way. It manages to relax and overcome any build up of excess tension in the muscles. Consequently, during treatment all parts of the feet will be stimulated and the significant dual effect is to relax your muscles and also to increase the efficiency of the circulation to all parts of the body. You will quickly notice the positive effects of reflexology.

Relaxation Day Spa

March 13th, 2014 by Alison Shaw

Relaxation day spaRelaxation Day Spa

I don’t know about you but I often find myself sitting in daze, day dreaming about the possible holidays that I could take off on. I dream about packing my bags and jump ingon a place to the most tropical destination and enjoying the beautiful sunsets, the sand between my toes and gorgeous swaying palm trees.

My holiday of choice? Hawaii- the home of relaxation, indulgence and tropical cocktails; also known as my “dream place”.

Am I the only who does this?

Sadly, I snap back to reality and realize that there is no way I can afford the ticket to get to my “dream place” and I proceed to go about my day in a sad “no hope of a holiday” slump. It’s sad but we all do it and unfortunately we can’t all jet set at the drop of the hat.

But here something that you can do that’s just as delightful and a whole lot more affordable. Get a Kahuna massage from Ripple!

Whats a Kahuna Massage? It’s a beautiful massage that Ripple has bought back from gorgeous Hawaii.

Kahuna massage was created by the priests in the ancient temples of Hawaii and predominantly kept for the special ceremonies. There is special footwork that is carried out by the masseuse that is based on the “Frigate Bird” dance. The Kahuna massage is a deep and rhythmical massage that indulges all the senses and utilizes long flowing movements over the length of the body.

Now you can enjoy your Hawaiian holiday in the comfort of your own home, and we won’t even mind if you want to wear your grass skirt! Aloha!

Hot Rock Massage

March 3rd, 2014 by Alison Shaw

Volcanic hot stone massagesHot Rock Massage

First week of March, and I am starting to feel the turn in the weather…. slightly but its definitely there.

I love the cooler months; getting all cozy and warm with a snuggly blanket or in front of a roaring fire place. Granted that Australia hardly gets a proper winter in most places, but still… I take what I can.

Therefore, with my love of all things cozy, my ultimate indulgence in relaxation would have to be the hot stone massage. Who wouldn’t love to be utterly pampered with aromatherapy oils, divine massage techniques and the added bonus of gorgeous smooth hot stones on your back?

Imagine lying on a massage table while your muscles transform under the warmth and luxury of hot stones.

Hot stone is an ancient massage technique that is internationally recognised as one of the best ways of relieving stress and sore muscles. Its often used to aid in deep tissue massages or used on their own for some blissful heat therapy. Regular massage coupled with the use of hot stones also help to promote circulation and encourage the release of toxins, making for the great detoxing as well as muscle therapy.

Ripple offers some fantastic Hot Stone massage deals, so give our friendly booking girls a call, and we will set you up with the best massage of your life! Call today on 0438 567 906 or visit us online.

Honey

February 22nd, 2014 by Alison Shaw

Honey massage from RippleHoney

I don’t know about you, but honey seems to find its way into most of my meas. I drizzle honey onto my cereal and yoghurt and also into my smoothies, then for dinner it finds its way into some of my chicken dishes! I can’t get enough of it, it just tastes so good.

But did you know that honey can also be used on your skin and has amazing health benefits and is often used in beauty remedies and home made products!

Honey promotes healing and can be used on to speed up the healing time of scars and as a topical treatment on burns. Honey is also a natural antibacterial agent, and is commonly used to help clear up face and body acne.

For those with aging skin, it is an antioxidant, helping to brighten your skin. And it doesn’t end there!

It seals in moisture for those who have issues with hydration, as well as being a soothing treatment for those with sensitive skin.

As you can see, honey has many great properties that help promote healthy skin, so why not lather your whole body in it?

Ripple can do this for you with their special honey massage brought to you from the Numimbah Valley in Queensland. Get coated in the finest of honeys and relax in the sweet aroma that arises from this gorgeous massage.

Your skin will be glowing and you will feel extremely relaxed and rejuvenated. Call today on 0438 567 906 or visit us online at http://www.ripplemassage.com.au/honey-massage-day-spa-bee-honey-lotion-oil-candle-soap-ripple.htm

Ripple Effect

Ripple effect Childrens Hope in Action

Ripple Effect

Give to yourself and automatically give to a girls education

I was sitting at a cafe in Vietnam with my son Jack.

Nice day, nice holiday, nice food.

Next to me was a very passionate Australian man recounting the amazing work done by an Aussie in Vietnam.

So I eavesdropped.

and the more I listened the more I became caught up in his passion.

So began our 9 year association with CHIA (Childrens Hope in Action ), sponsoring girls education in Vietnam.

This year, like every other year, it’s easy for you to support a girl being educated whilst pampering yourself.

On the 22nd February, everything (all revenue) Ripple receives, will be donated to CHIA, an Australian charity, to support girls education.

So if you are going to book, maybe book then…

Thank you to everyone who has supported our Ripple Effect over the last nine years. Mahalo for your support ..

Valentines Day Gift

Day spa chocolate massageValentines Day Gift

Chocolate Massage

I don’t know about anyone else but I have a major (and I mean major!) addiction to chocolate. I cannot go past the chocolate aisle at the super market or the impulse shelves at the petrol station without succumbing to the intense seduction that is chocolate. I hope I am not alone in this because I fear sometimes that I can get out of control (what empty box of chocolates?)

Now as someone who attempts to stay in shape, chocolate doesn’t always remain one my best friends. Therefore, I need to find other ways of immersing myself in chocolate-y goodness. Enter the chocolate massage, Ripples calorie free answer for all those with a chocolate addiction like myself. Who wouldn’t want to have their entire body covered in the sweet, sweet goodness, all whilst being submerged into a deep relaxation brought on by massage? That honestly sounds like my heaven on earth!

This gorgeous treatment was discovered while exploring the streets in Barcelona, Spain and we brought it back to Ripple where we use our own secret chocolate oil recipe that honestly smells like you have entered into a candy store. The oil is warmed on your body and there is no way to explain the luxurious feeling that you will feel when you treat yourself to this massage

Give Ripple a call and book yourself in for our signature chocolate massage and experience the ultimate indulgence. And what better time of the year to do it than for Valentine’s Day! Chocolate and Valentines go hand in hand, and it’s a great way to surprise a loved one for the holiday of love. We can’t promise however, that you won’t be craving chocolate at the end!

Go on, indulge yourself! Ripple is on 0438 567 906 or visit www.ripplemassage.com.au
