Top Day Spa Gosford Treatments
- Manicure/ Handspa
Manicures are one of life’s small pleasures. For some, it’s an essential part of their monthly or even weekly beauty regimen. For others, it’s reserved for special occasions. Changing the colour and even shape of our nails can also change the way we feel about ourselves and our image. In this popular holiday destination, a manicure is a quick way to pamper yourself without having to take too much time away from your busy tourist schedule. Our most popular treatment here is the one-hour handspa – complete hand rejuvenation with a luxurious manicure, aromatherapy exfoliation, steamed hot towels, hand and arm massage.
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly. Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness, increases flexibility, increases circulation and metabolism, and provides relief from pain associated with fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic conditions. This is one of our most popular, decadent and nurturing treatments. Volcanic stones are used with aromatherapy oils to give you an amazing, pampering and healing massage experience.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of our hectic lives, it is often easy to neglect our feet – we spend all day walking around on them, keep them enclosed in shoes all the time, and promptly forget them when we sit down. It is only when we take time away from our busy schedules, that we remember that our feet need some love as well. A highly popular treatment, the hour-long Ripple pedispa indulgence is a wonderful way to treat your neglected and overworked feet to much-deserved pampering. Deeply nourishing and hydrating, this aromatic foot ritual includes a foot soak, an exfoliating foot scrub, a foot massage and a deluxe pedicure. Your feet will thank you for it.
- Microdermabrasion Facial
The natural ageing process, combined with env
ironmental factors like stress, smoking and sun exposure, all have a dramatic effect on our skin. Many of us wish for the skin of younger years and it is possible to restore it – simply with a complete facial treatment using the microdermabrasion process, to give skin back its healthy natural glow, clarify the skin, and reduce wrinkles.
Using the latest technology, you can now treat yourself to a microdermabrasion treatment that is entirely crystal free, is non-invasive, and which also stimulates circulation and blood flow, thus encouraging collagen and elastin production. The process works by removing dead outer skin layers and unwanted skin cells. This is finished off with a hydrating mask and a relaxing head and neck massage. The result is smooth, fresh and super soft skin, and a wonderfully exfoliating and hydrating experience.
- Hydrotherapy Spa Treatment
Whether you’re juggling work and family, recovering from a joint or muscle injury, or simply needing to unwind from the day’s stresses, spa hydrotherapy provides both relaxation, healing effects and nourishing rejuvenation. The heat from the warm water improves circulation and speeds recovery in damaged tissue; the buoyancy achieved in the spa reduces effects of pressure on joints and spine; while the massage relieves muscle tension and alleviates stress. In this therapeutic total body wellness experience, the very latest in water therapy technology is used in a hydrotherapy spa to deliver total relaxation and rejuvenation.
Allow yourself to drift away as your hydrotherapist soothingly massages your scalp and neck while gentle mist and steam combine with essential oils to cleanse your pores, leaving your entire body feeling refreshed and recharged. A hydrotherapy session can be combined with other spa treatments such as full body exfoliation treatments, facials, or full body massage. Hydrotherapy can relax and ready muscles to receive massage and prepare the skin’s pores to better absorb ingredients that may be used during a facial or body treatment.
Pregnancy and preparations for a new baby can be stressful and exhausting for both parents-to-be, and the Central Coast is the perfect backdrop for a getaway before bub arrives, to take some time to reconnect with your partner and enjoy some time out from the preparations. Our Babymoon packages include deluxe pregnancy massages and beauty treatments by our skilled and experienced therapists, and ensure that you are pampered, nurtured and relaxed for a smoother and easier birth.

Picture yourself on a well-deserved weekend getaway with your beloved. You’ve had a full and busy day, beginning with an early morning hot air balloon ride, followed by a scrumptious breakfast of local produce, and an afternoon spent wandering through the local national park. Neither of you feel like venturing out again after such a wonderful day outdoors, and that’s just as well because you’re both soon relaxing under the expert hands of two massage therapists in the comfort of your hotel room.

The perfect way to spend quality time with your loved one while enjoying some much needed relaxation.
- Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage, or Champissage (champi is the Hindi word for head massage), is a massage therapy that is based on the ancient healing system of Ayurveda. Indian head massage focuses on treating the patient using massage techniques on the face, head, neck, upper arms and shoulders. It uses gentle massage strokes on these areas to stimulate the nerves, loosen up tight muscles, and relax superficial tissues. There are multiple benefits to receiving regular head massages, including: relieving muscle tension; improving circulation; relieving insomnia; promoting healthy hair growth; improving mental performance; stimulating the lymphatic system and alleviating stress and anxiety; and promoting a deep and lasting sense of peace and tranquility. Lie back for a healing rest as your back, shoulders, arms and head are taken on a journey to wellbeing.
In this laid-back town, you will find the ideal atmosphere to recharge and rejuvenate. Breathe in the sea air; wander through the bushland; and feel your body respond and relax to the serenity around you.
