August promotion at sanctum

With the harsher Winter weather, toasty heaters and hot showers constantly draining our skin of moisture, elascticity and radiance, here at sanctum, we thought we'd see what we could do to counteract those effects.
Thoughout the month of August
enjoy a complimentary upgrade to our deep, cleansing
AHA Treatment Masque by Mukti
with any 30 or 60 minute Aromatic Facial.

AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) are gentle acids that help to remove dry, dull skin cells and refresh and refine the newer cellls underneath - assisting with product penetration and improving your complexion.
Able to be used on almost any skin type (except sensitive or over broken skin) AHA's are a simple, effective way to renew the look of the skin.
The AHA's in Mukti's Treatment Masque are Malic (from apples), Citric (from citrus fuits) and Lactic (from milk) and they assist with exfoliation of the skin by dissolving the intercellular 'glue' that holds cells together - in this case, that glue that holds dead skin cells to the surface of the skin.
Mukti have also added numerous other beneficial ingredients including: Vitmain A, Vitamin E, Bilberry and Green Tea Extracts - all well known antioxidants added to help with improving the signs of ageing.
A course of treatments is recommended for best results - we recommend 4 Treatments over 8 weeks and then maintanance Treatments as required.
Winter and Autumn are great times of year for these treatments - as your skin generally needs the most help and you can be looking your very best by the time Summer comes around!
You can also save by purchasing a course of 4 (30 or 60 min)Aromatic Facials and recieving the 5th absolutely free. 
This month, of course, is a great time for this offer as you will also recieve the AHA Masque included.

from the inside out...

As of July, we are very excited to be able to offer full Naturopathic Services here at sanctum.
With the introduction of our new Therapist, Jess Ralph, we can now recommend her to all our Clients for a large range of health and wellness concerns.
As well as Remedial Massage qualifications, Jess has an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy and a passion for natural medicine.
She is also able to offer Health Fund Rebates with her Naturopathy Consultations to most Funds.

One question we are often asked is 'What is Naturopathy?'.
Naturopathy is a broad ranging therapy that looks to determine the underlying cause of any symptoms or signs of ill health and by using treatments such as: Dietary & Lifestyle Advice, Herbal Medicine, Vitamin & Mineral Supplements and Education, to give the body what it needs in order to balance and heal itself.
After much discussion, we decided to structure our consultations in a way that allows us to gather the most information, impart the most knowledge and continually monitor your progress, allowing for any modifications along the way.
To this end, Naturopathic Consultations at sanctum are as follows:
Initial Consultations
2 x 60 Minutes $160
Monthly Follow Up Consultation
30 Minutes $55
Health Smart Package
Prepay 4 x Followup Consultations and receive the 5th free $220
The First Initial Consultation is all about gathering information from you, the Second Initial Consultation (1-2 weeks later) is all about letting you know about Jess' findings, her Herbal and Supplement prescriptions, Dietary and Lifestyle suggestions and also educating you about your health  and the steps recommended for improvement.
You will also receive an individually tailored report with all the information you need to start making positive changes in your life and health.
The Monthly Follow Up Consultations are an important part of our Naturopathic Services.  They allow us to monitor your progress, modify any Supplements or Dietary changes and answer any questions as they arise.  They also help to keep you motivated should you be finding any of the changes challenging.
To finish off, we thought we'd give you some ideas as to what Naturopathy can be helpful for:
Physical - Fatigue, Muscular Disorders, Arthritis, Gout, Headaches, Cancer Treatment support
Respiratory - Asthma, Colds and Flus, Sinus and Hayfever
Digestive - Abdominal Bloating, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Weight Maintenance, Constipation and Diarrhoea
Reproductive - Menstrual Problems, Fertility, Prostate Health and Hormone Imbalance
Skin - Eczema, Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Dry Skin and Acne
Emotional - Insomnia, Anxiety, ADHD, difficulty concentrating, Depression and Stress Management
As you can see, Naturopathy can be effective of a large range of concerns and conditions.

sanctum july promotion

Stave off the chilly weather with the perfect remedy at sanctum....
a Hot Stone Treatment!
There are many different types of Hot Stone Treatments on the market, we just like to think that ours is one of the best!
The Hahana style uses both 'placement' stones (stones that sit stationary on the body acting like heat packs) as well at 'working' stones (used in actual massage movements) to let our Clients slide into one of the most relaxing treatments we know how to do!
The intense heat, coupled with the flowing, Hawaiian massage movements are wonderful for easing muscle aches and tension and it is quite common for Clients to doze off during the treatment and then float away home afterwards.
At sanctum we offer Hot Stone Treatments in 30, 60 and 90 Minute timeframes.
The 30 Minute treatments concentrate on the back of the body while our longer timeframe Hot Stone Treatments generally, cover the whole body - working through the tension in your back, neck and shoulders, soothing your aching feet and legs and finishing with a unique facial treatment!

During July we are offering the following remedy for the Winter Blues:
Our deluxe 90 Minute Hot Stone Treatment,
a 100g Goat Milk Soap Bar
and a 70g Pure Soy Candle
All for only $110!

Due to set up and clean up requirements, spaces for these treatments will be limited each day so be sure to book early!

For over 6 years, Annie has been a Certified Trainer for Hahana in Hot Stone Treatments for other Spas and Salons in Queensland and now Northern Tasmania.
This means Annie can offer a divine treatment best experienced to allow you to unwind, de-stress and be rejuvenated like never before!
