Health | Sanctum: taking care of you

The Sanctum Spa is as much a part of the Everyone Active Centre (previously Westgate Centre) as the gym itself. The amazing team there have been pampering people for the past 30 years.


So why not treat someone you love to a back, neck and shoulder massage with a reviving spa facial in the new year? The ladies at the Sanctum would like to offer this to all Post readers for an amazing package deal for only £45.00.


Not many people know that massage has so many potential health benefits besides the obvious help to immediate pain. One of the benefits is increased blood flow and circulation, which brings needed nutrition to muscles and tissues. This aids in recovery of muscle soreness from physical activity or soft tissue injury (such as muscle strain). A back massage also stimulates the production of endorphins, dopamine and serotonin, chemicals that make the body feel good. It can help decrease pain in the lower back, which may help prevent anxiety and depression, and relaxes the larger muscles and relieves tension that may be causing you to have a difficult time falling asleep or staying in a deep sleep.


Facials, face packs, aromatherapy facials and massage with facial creams and other remedies help deep cleanse the skin, removing toxins caused by pollution, grease and dirt found in your everyday environment. Such facials help to reduce an overabundance of sebum, which is a natural substance moisturises and lubricates the skin. Cleansing facials open the pores of the skin, remove dead skin and toxins from the face, and clean the surface of the skin through exfoliation that tightens and firms the skin, promoting an appearance of younger looking skin.
