joyeux anniversairre!

Happy 2nd Birthday sanctum!
We are thrilled to not only still have our doors open, but to actually be growing and evolving as well!
We introduce our new, revamped Service Menu and Website, our new Skin Care line and our new Appointment software!
We've managed to combine three of the biggest things a business in our industry can do, short of moving premises, all together!!
From October 2nd, our new menu rolls out.  Teaming our most popular treatments from the past two years with lots of new Treatments and Services to meet our Clients needs.  With increased overheads, we have needed to increase our prices, but as minimally as possible.  Most affected are the labour and product intensive treatments such as our Hot Stone Therapy and our Aromatic Spa Facials.
However, as a 'settling in' period offer, you can still enjoy our most popular treatments at the 'old menu' prices for this month only.
Massage Therapy
30 Minutes $45    60 Minutes $75    90 Minutes $105
Hot Stone Therapy (indluding our new Circulation Booster Treatment)
30 Minutes $55    60 Minutes $85    90 Minutes $115
Aromatic Spa Facials
30 Minutes $45    60 Minutes $75

Valid Gift Vouchers and Bookings made prior to October will remain at the old prices.  Expired Gift Vouchers may incure a small charge to cover any price differences.  But please come and talk to us first with any questions!

Come and help celebrate the (2 year) old with the new at sanctum today!

Spring rolls on...

Throughout October to November 11th we have two new offers for you!

Pay the low price of $30 for our new Comprehensive Skin Analysis service and receive $15 towards the purchase of two or more AHAVA Skin Care products

May we introduct you to.......?

After a marathon 3 month search, we finally found the perfect fit for our new product range.
Our challenge was to find a skin care line that fell in with our base philosphy of holistic wellbeing as well as offering our Clients the best range of skin solutions possible.
AHAVA mineral skin care range ticked all these boxes for us and more.
Their training and support were also a major factor in convincing us to bring them on board and so far, we have not been disappointed.
AHAVA is a natural skin care range, sourced from the Dead Sea.  Their Dead Sea Salt is literally dehydrated Dead Sea Water and their Dead Sea Mud is collected on the banks at Jordan. They are the only company that has a collection license for the area.
We love that this range starts from a place of deep healing.  Millions travel to this lowest point on earth to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis, as well as muscular skelelal issue such as Cystic Fibrosis and even digestive disorders such as Coeliac disease!
The range offers skin solutions for a wide range of skin challenges and their body product range is just as active and effective as their facial product range.
All products are fully tested at the prestigious Dermatest Insitute in Europe - meaning the full product is tested, not simply individual ingredients - and all products contain the patented OsmoterTM concentrate.  Osmoter is a stabilised compound chock full of vital minerals that allows the minerals to stay active and viable while in the products (minerals are notoriously unstable outside their natural environments).

We have taken advantage fully of this amazing range throughout our new menu that launches in October.
Facial treatments, hand and foot therapies and even full body treatments - all using exciting new products.
We hope you'll join us in getting to know our new range!

Exciting times ahead!

On Monday 17th September, Lel and Annie are off on a whirlwind trip to Melbourne for product knowledge training.
Part of our full Service Menu renewal here at sanctum, we are also taking the opportunity to refresh our skin care lines in time for our 2nd Birthday Celebrations next month.
Over the past 2 years, we have found that our Clients are presenting with certain concerns and this new range allows us to address these concerns more completely.
For now, know that we are, as always, totally committed to presenting the best in skin solutions for each and everyone of our Clients and to offering a range that compliments our philosophy of a holistic approach to wellness.
In a few short weeks, we will launch the first part of our new Service Menu - we say 'first part' because there are even more fantastic treatments coming your way and we are still putting the final touches onto the treatments we plan to offer.
Alongside this, our new booking software is in its early stages of folding itself into our current practices.  We are training hard to ensure that the changeover to this new way of booking our Clients goes as smoothly as possible.
We do ask for your patience in these early days as we are sure there will be the occasional time that the new way of doing things clashes with the old!
There are definitely exciting time ahead!

What a way to celebrate!

This Friday, we are so excited to have a great group of ladies booked in for a Spa Party with us here at sanctum.
One of the ladies is celebrating her birthday, and we are a bit thrilled that she chose us to spend this time with.
Facials, Massage and Reflexology are on the Treatment Menu and Sushi, Cupcakes and Bubbly are on the nibbles Menu!
We've even custom made some of our lovely Moroccan Tea Glass Candles up for gifts for everyone coming along.
The centre will be booked out for this private function from 11am till 2pm and you can contact us to find more information on our Spa Pary options here.
These are an inventive and memorable way to celebrate birthdays, hens nights, anniversaries or 'just because' and are fantastic for staff rewards or incentives.

Boutique Markets are coming to Launceston!

This great market is making it's way around Australia with much success!
Each stall holder goes through an application process to ensure that their product and philosphy is in line with the high standards set by the market managers.
This means you can be sure of great quality and a great range of goodies to choose from!
What could be better than that?
Our resident candle and soap maker, Annie, will be there for her first market all year!
See you this Saturday at the Hotel Grand Chancellor between 9am and 1pm!

Thanks Dad!

The day we celebrate all that is Fatherly is not far away!
On Sunday September 2nd, be sure you show this amazing man in your life just how much he means to you and your family.
With only a few weeks to go, we though we would offer our Fathers Day package a little earlier this year to give you plenty of time to surprise him with an appointment or a Gift Voucher.
Now some people seem to feel that a 'spa' treatment may be a little 'girly' for their Dad - so we have been sure to find only the very manliest of treatments to have in our sanctum Fathers Day package!

We begin with a truly hard core Himalayan Salt Back Exfoliation (not for the faint of heart), then proceed with our signature 60 Minute Remedial Massage (sure to whip him into shape!). 
Even so, we still felt this was not enough! 
So we are also adding in 4 Heated Basalt Stones into the treatment!
He is sure to leave feeling very spoilt but still head of the household!

So now you have no excuse but to treat your Dad to a great experience, as this is all just $95!
Call us on 6333 8833 or email us here to make his appointment or for Gift Voucher enquiries and sales.

New Menu on the way!

With the introduction of our now popular, Pure Oxygen Therapy as well as Waxing and Tinting Treatments, we are in need of an updated Menu and Brochure. It's been almost two years since we opened now with our current one.
Due out at the end of this month (we hope!), we’ll have our new Treatments and more to offer you. Our ‘skin’ treatment range is expanding and we are rethinking our Spa Packages as well, to take advantage of what we’ve seen as our bestselling treatment combinations.
We would also like to let everyone know early on, that due to increased costs for us, our prices will be increasing to allow us to continue offering the experiences and service we believe you deserve.
As a gesture of good will, we will certainly honour the value of any Package or Voucher purchased before the new menu becomes active. For Gift Vouchers that have expired, there
may be an additional fee to meet the gap – but please come and talk to us beforehand!
We will be as flexible as possible.
For our very regular Clients, we would recommend that you purchase a pack of your usual treatments before the price increase – that way you can enjoy your Treatments at the lower prices for a little longer.
As always, any questions, do let us know.


Hot Stone Facials!
High Peformance Ampoule Therapy!
Intensive Hydrating Heated Hand & Foot Therapy!
And More.......

Any sanctum Clients who have come to visit over the last few weeks will have noticed our new Herbal Tea range.
While we loved the Husk range we've had from our opening, reduced stock choices meant we needed to find a replacement tea range that suited our Clients and our space.

With a great range of tea and wonderful Customer Service, AOT seems a perfect fit for us and our Clients.
Choose from our select range of blends:
Raspberry & Vanilla Rooibos - fruity, smooth and very drinkable!  This blend sold out the first day we had it in stock!
