To our colleagues, clients, business associates, friends and families

As we usher in the new year with great celebrations and expectations, team Mantra takes this moment to express our heartfelt gratitude to you. We look forward to building and strengthening our relationship in the new year.
Tomorrow from 9 am to 11 am our website will be getting some technical upgrading so please excuse us for any inconveniences caused.
Mantra is undergoing a significant transition with spa treatments, treatment prices and product branding. The new identity had to satisfy all of Mantras' expectations of what our original mark stands for...while simultaneously moving forward.
Part of the Mantra transition is to clear out all of our ELEMIS products and treatments. To speed up our transition, we will be giving 30% off all ELEMIS products and treatments. The discounted treatments can be found updated on our Website!
Get in quick as stock is limited and treatments are for a limited time only!
To our wonderful clients...
We want to continue to grow and offer the service and results you have come to expect from us. In order to remain competitive while still retaining our quality in our treatments, there will be a change to some of the treatments and raising some of our treatment prices. This change will be effective as from the end of today. I will share with you next week an updated price and treatment sheet. The price increases will reflect our increase for our clients experience, quality service and reputation within the industry.
Price increases are an unavoidable part of doing business and we hope we can continue to improve as a company and look after our clients for the long term future.
If you have any questions or need clarification, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Like our bodies, our skin has to adapt to seasonal changes. To keep it in tip top shape, we need to understand its natural cycle and pamper it accordingly.
Our skin, as with the seasons, goes through different phases. Cold weather, sunshine, air conditioning and central heating can harm our skin, which is highly sensitive to climatic change. And it's with the arrival of spring and autumn that our skin really bears the brunt. During these intermediate seasons, with their topsy-turvy weather, our skin has to work harder to adapt.
AUTUMN, A TRANSITIONAL PHASE When our skin is no longer 'protected' by our tan, blemishes return with avengeance: wrinkles, dry skin, sagginess, redness and, in some cases, an increase in sebum production. The skin becomes pale, loses tone and dehydrates. Worn out by autumn's seasonal changes, our skin craves treatments that will give it back its glow; this is the time to mollycoddle it with invigorating scrubs, moisturising face masks and beneficial treatments.
WINTER, WHEN OUR EPIDERMIS HIBERNATES During winter, our skin has to confront wind, cold and temperature changes between heated homes and the freezing outdoors. Our skin's metabolism decreases, our circulation slows down and cell renewal is reduced. The result is our skin can lose its healthy glow. Our epidermis needs a rest. It cries out for richer moisturisers and comforting ingredients.
SPRING, A TIME TO BLOOM As the season springs to life, so does our skin! Having been numbed by the cold and shorter daylight hours, it's time to wake up our skin. Having been bombarded with toxins throughout winter and sensitised by the return of skin allergies this is the moment to scrub and deeply cleanse.
SUMMER, A DANGEROUS SEASON Skin needs all the help it can to combat damage caused by the sun: its sebum fluidifies, its pores open, it sweats and it has a hard time dealing with greasy products. Fully hydrating our skin is the key! As soon as the sun pokes out its head, we need to swap rich creams for lighter textures and do everything we can to protect our skin from harmful UV ray.
Rebalance your skin after cleansing
The importance of a toner is often underestimated, in reality, toning should be considered an IMPORTANT part of the cleaning process when it comes to maintaining healthy skin. It tidies up after a cleanser, removing the last remnants of residue and gently tones the pores, before prepping the skin for the next application. It will help all your other products work more efficiently by clearing the decks between stages,More importantaly, toner will help sooth, nourish and hydrate the skin while restoring the skins delicate pH balance and creating a healthy environment for it to flourish. This is particularly true for skin prone to breakouts, as a good toner will help to reduce bacteria and sebum, while supporting the natural oils, good bacteria, water and salt that it needs.

Controls weight Eating right and exercising regularly can help you avoid excess weight gain and maintain a healthy weight. Being physically active is essential to reaching your weight-loss goals. Even if you’re not trying to lose weight, regular exercise can improve cardiovascular health, boost your immune system, and increase your energy level.
Plan for at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity every week. If you can’t devote this amount of time to exercise, look for simple ways to increase activity throughout the day. For example, try walking instead of driving, take the stairs instead of the elevator, or pace while you’re talking on the phone.
Eating a balanced, calorie-managed diet can also help control weight. When you start the day with a healthy breakfast, you avoid becoming overly hungry later, which could send you running to get fast food before lunch.
Additionally, skipping breakfast can raise your blood sugar, which increases fat storage. Incorporate at least five servings of fruits and vegetables into your diet per day. These foods, which are low in calories and high in nutrients, help with weight control. Limit consumption of sugary beverages, such as sodas and fruit juices, and choose lean meats like fish and turkey.
Improves mood Doing right by your body pays off for your mind as well. Physical activity stimulates the production of endorphins. Endorphins are brain chemicals that leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. Eating a healthy diet as well as exercising can lead to a better physique. You’ll feel better about your appearance, which can boost your confidence and self-esteem. Short-term benefits of exercise include decreased stress and improved cognitive function.
It’s not just diet and exercise that lead to improved mood. Another healthy habit that leads to better mental health is making social connections. Whether it’s volunteering, joining a club, or attending a movie, communal activities help improve mood and mental functioning by keeping the mind active and serotonin levels balanced. Don’t isolate yourself. Spend time with family or friends on a regular basis, if not every day. If there’s physical distance between you and loved ones, use technology to stay connected. Pick up the phone or start a video chat.
Combats diseases Healthy habits help prevent certain health conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. If you take care of yourself, you can keep your cholesterol and blood pressure within a safe range. This keeps your blood flowing smoothly, decreasing your risk of cardiovascular diseases. Regular physical activity and proper diet can also prevent or help you manage a wide range of health problems, including: diabetes, depression and certain types of cancer
Be Inspired…..Relax your mind, body and soul with the benefits of Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage helps increase mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders. It improves blood circulation, lymphatic flow and aids elimination of toxins and is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension.
Indian Head Massage has been practiced in India for over a thousand years but was restricted to the head and hair for many years and now because of the benefits it now encompasses the neck, shoulders and upper arms. Indian Head massage is a safe, simple yet very effective therapy that not only promotes hair growth, but also provides relief from aches and pains.
The head neck and shoulders are very important energy centres within your body. If you are feeling stressed or angry, tension tends to accumulate here. This tension can later show up as a stiff neck and shoulders, eyestrain and sometimes even hair loss. Indian head massage involves working with a firm gentle rhythm to help un-knot blockages and release this uncomfortable build up of tension.
What Conditions can an Indian Head Treatment help with?
Benefits of Indian Head Massage?There are many benefits from an Indian Head Massage treatment and the therapeutic effects are found to last long after the treatment is over. The short and long term benefits are individual, varied and cumulative and can lead to a greater feeling of self awareness, which often brings the additional benefits of a change to a healthier life style.

The aim of an Indian head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. An Indian Head Massage works with the ayurveda concept, which, goes beyond the limits of healing and places emphasis on balance. Working on the charkas has a powerful effect and can bring the energy of the whole body back into balance.
Indian Head Massage involves massage and acupressure techniques manipulating the soft tissues on the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face. The effect is not just physical: it works on an emotional level too, calming the mind, promoting relaxation and relieving stress.
One of the most common stress related complaints are headaches. One in three individuals consult their doctor with this symptom every year, and 95% of the population suffer from them at some time.
Massaging the scalp, face, neck and shoulders relieves eyestrain, improves concentration, eliminates muscular tension and restores joint movement.
Massaging the head encourages the supply of oxygen to the brain, which is one of the best ways of reducing stress. Oxygen helps you think clearly and creatively, the same effect is brought about through exercising.
Indian Head Massage attacks stress in an immediate way by accessing the physical effects. It also aids better relaxation and sleep, the lack of which is often a strong component in stress related illness, which can lead to more serious mental breakdown. The relaxation opposes the stress response and helps re-balance the process.
By working on Stress, Indian Head Massage has the effect of slowing down behaviour. Time becomes less important for the duration of the massage as sensual awareness takes over. Afterwards a feeling of being less hurried allows the individual to be less compulsive and more considerate in their outlook. Thoughts quieten and awareness is brought to the forefront.
