Where we found the Chocolate Massage : Barcelona

chocolate-massage-day-spa-ripple-effect“I was wandering down near the crazy Gaudi church in Barcelona when I came across a small day spa, tucked in a small alley.

Feeling spoiled by lots of great Spanish food, beautiful architecture and some retail therapy, I thought the perfect way to finish the day would be a massage.

The owner didn’t speak English and I don’t speak Spanish, but I saw a word on the menu that is universally recognised by women… chocolate.

So what followed was two hours of bliss, being massaged with warmed chocolate oil from head to foot. Just divine, wrapped in the scent of rich chocolate and my muscles melting under the therapists hands.

At the end I was craving a sugar fix and headed to a nearby restaurant for some churros and thick, lush, drizzly chocolate.

Pure decadence.” – Alison

Chocolate Massage Benefits

Chocolate is fantastic for both your health and for your skin!

chocolate-massage-chocolate-body-wrap-massages-ripple-cocoaIt has lots of potassium zinc, magnesium and iron. Magnesium is one of the elements most importantly to muscles and is the one vitamin that I recommend to all my clients to take. Low amounts of magnesium are thought to be the reason why premenstrual women love chocolate.

Chocolate also lowers cholesterol levels and the Vitamin E and B in chocolate are thought to reduce stress levels.

Chocolate enhancer’s mood with the phenylethylamine in the cacao bean raising serotonin (the feel good hormone) levels. This hormone has also been shown to reduce depression, hunger and increase your sex drive. It also stimulates endorphins, another feel good hormone.

Chocolate also has a relaxing effect on blood vessels and allows for better blood circulation. The favanoids in chocolate are anti oxidants and act as a blood thinner. It also stimulates insulin production.

chocolate-massage-ripple-chocolate-body-wrap-spa-packageChocolate also nourishes skin from the outside as well as internally. At Ripple we include a chocolate facial, chocolate scrub as well as chocolate oil in your massage package.

Chocolate massage couples all the benefits of using chocolate on the skin with other health benefits of massage, such as relaxation, increased blood flow, stimulation of the lymphatic system and digestive system. Using both together increases the effectiveness of the massage, as well as being a luxurious experience.

Chocolate

face-massage-facial-ripple-day-spaChocolate is the one of the popular delicacies in the world. It is constantly craved, especially my women, the world over. Its is the basis for some the best desserts and recipes known the man and it is one of the most bought gifts for events such as birthday, anniversaries and holidays.

Chocolate is derived from the Theobroma Cacao seeds, which are roasted and grounded. Once grounded into a liquid paste and sweetened and flavoured, then set in a block to what we know as chocolate today.

There are three types chocolate that are used in cooking this day and age, which are dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate. The chocolate we typically consume today is known as sweet chocolate or milk chocolate. Its does contain a little bit of cacao but is strongly outweighed with additives like cocoa butter, sugar and milk.

White chocolate is actually not chocolate as it contains zero cacaos and is just milk, cocoa butter and sugar. Dark chocolate is what you want to be looking for if you want to find the benefits of chocolate. It needs to be at least 70% cocoa to have benefits and companies like Nestle and Lindt have a fantastic range of dark chocolate treats.

Cocoa solids contain wonderful antioxidants like flavinoids and alkaloids, and it also produces a chemical in the body known as serotonin which is known as the “happy” chemical.

Chocolate is used in the modern times in many different ways, the most popular in consumption. Whether you enjoy a hot chocolate, chocolate milk shake, chocolate cupcakes, chocolate fudge, chocolate slice or a treat from the multi-million dollar chocolate bar industry, you pretty much can find something that will suit every person.

and flavours, and therefore many people are consuming additional calories that they don’t need. To be getting any benefits from chocolate you need to consuming 70% dark chocolate pieces like from Lindt or Nestle.

Dark chocolate (note: this is only with dark chocolate) is known to have several properties that can benefit the human body. It is known to lower cardiovascular problems and cholesterol levels. Some studies have shown it can lower your Body Mass index and prevent diabetes.

Beauty wise, chocolate has sun protection properties, has ingredients that makes your skin glow, contains antioxidants which makes your skin look younger, and can prevent
