What is Smooth Sailing Body Scrub treatment?
Our exceptional full body, skin-softening exfoliation treatment combines epsom salts and natural beads with rich and essential oils, to leave your skin nourished, smooth and supple. Perfect as a stand-alone treatment, or in preparation for a Massage.
How does a Smooth Sailing Body Scrub treatment work?
By combining high quality, vitamin-rich ingredients with gentle massage, our skilled therapist will exfoliate rough skin and stimulate improved circulation, leaving you feeling moisturised, smooth, soft and energised.
Allow plenty of time for your treatment; arrive 10 minutes early so there’s time to relax in our waiting area. If it is your first time at The Lagoon you’ll be asked to complete a pre-treatment client questionnaire. Avoid eating a heavy meal or drinking alcohol prior to the treatment.
Our skilled therapist will guide you into The Lagoon and ask some questions to establish your needs. They will choose a body scrub blend according to your skin type. Either Lavender & Vanilla (sensitive) or Lemon & Orange.
Your therapist will give you time to undress privately and lie down on our massage table, where you may cover yourself with towels. You will not be completely exposed at any point during your treatment; your therapist will uncover one little bit of you at a time depending on the area she is focusing on.
You will usually begin on your back and turn over at the halfway point.
Our therapist will use our expertly blended Salty Sea Scrub, and a combination of gentle circular massage techniques, to work the 100% natural exfoliant into your feet, legs, lower torso, hands, arms and upper torso. There’ll be no need to leave the warm comfort of our spa bed, as all residues will be seamlessly removed with warm mits.
This will be followed by a mini seaweed facial, comprising of a single cleanse, exfoliation with our Seaweed Facial Polish and facial massage.
The treatment will end in a mini Swedish-style massage, using our rich aromatherapy massage oil.

As a stimulating exfoliation treatment, your skin may be slightly red after this treatment, but not irritated or painful. This redness should subside within a few hours.
If you tend to break out anywhere on your body from the neck downwards, please advise our team when booking, as we will prepare an alternative scrub blend to complement your sensitive skin type.

However, this treatment is not recommended for anyone with decreased pain sensitivity, recent wounds, areas of weakened or inflamed skin, tumours or metal implants, or who has recently undergone chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, or is on medication that thins the blood.
