July 2015 Ultimate News

It’s official,  Ultimate Care is expecting another Baby! We would like to take this opportunity to announce that Ash and Tom are  having a baby due in November.  This will be our second baby for 2015 and we can’t wait to meet our new little team member.

As you can imagine it is with mixed emotions that I announce this news, I am thrilled for Ash but sad to see another one of my amazing therapists leave us.


I am sitting here writing this newsletter as the winter chills and rain descend upon us and want to remind you all that during winter we find our skin needs extra care and attention and we have many beautiful treatments to help ward off the winter dehydration.  It is also very important to note that if you take Cold and Flu medication this will also dehydrate your skin.  A beautiful Hot Stone Massage can also be very therapeutic after the flu to sooth your aching muscles to help you in your recovery.

Winter also see us at the salon experience an increase in cancellations due to people getting sick.  However if it is a cold and miserable day please don’t be deterred   from coming in for your treatments as we go to great lengths in keeping the salon warm with electric blankets, fluffy blankets and heating to make sure you are as snug as a bug during your treatment.  I can’t think of a better way to enjoy some downtime in winter than with a beautiful treatment in a cosy bed.  With this in mind we have bought back our most popular  promotion from last winter Relax and Reverse (keep reading for more details)  Don’t hesitate to call us if you need an appointment during winter as we can often fit you in on the day if we have cancellations, so keep an eye out for our  Appointments Available sign out the front or on facebook.

This is also the best time of year to start a Skin Care Boot Camp regime, this is a 12 week programme designed to take you and your skin through a skin care journey with amazing treatments in the salon and cosmetcuticals to use at home.  We can target your skin concerns such as pigmentation, loss of firmness, fine lines, wrinkles  and dullness and have you looking your best for spring and summer.  We really want every client to experience the best skin they can possibly have and with our expertise and the help of trusted skin care like Ultraceuticals and Dermalogcia we feel this is now achievable.
