Last night saw the heads of the beauty and spa industry all gather for the Beauty Oscars at The exclusive Brewery in the City of London for one of the most glamorous nights of the year - The UK Professional Beauty and World Spa Awards 2016.
It was a night where the champagne and wine flowed freely and the creme de la creme of the industry all waited with baited breath as the winners of the awards were announced.
Angel Loving Care's Head Angel Deborah King was there with her mother as she was shortlisted for the 4th time in the last 5 years for one of the most sought after titles UK Therapist of the Year.
Sadly it was to be a 4th year as runner up for West Lothian based Deborah who has won 12 industry awards and been nominated for 24 in the last 8 years but the night was enjoyed by all and Deborah would like to say a massive thank you to all her clients, family and friends for their well wishes and encouragement in the build up to these awards.
"It is a complete honour to be shortlisted into the top 6 of the UK once so 4 times is something to be very proud of..."
Doh!!!! To sum it up in the words of old man Homer...
How many of you get that horrible sensation that you just cant stand up properly and stretch? Feel as if your back has been somehow compressed and squeezed down so much that it just cant breathe....
Likelihood is that is exactly what has happened just through general aches and pains of life....
A good holistic NO HANDS Massage will gently and effectively boost the circulation throughout your body helping essentially to unwind all that built up stress, tension and anxiety out of your body allowing your muscles to breathe and relax and return naturally to where they are supposed to be... Being stretched out should enable you to feel loose and relaxed again plus you will feel as if you are walking on air and have left the weight of the world on the therapy couch...
So what are you waiting for - just one good reason to put yourself first and grab yourself a massage....
WHAT IS A REPLETION MASSAGE?
Have you ever had that feeling that you just have no energy at all? That all you want to do is sleep and be still?
Well.... In a nutshell that is what we are dealing with when we are working with clients on a repletion level - the level of of touch is so gentle but effectively helps to draw energy around the body to gently and effectively replenish the body...
A lot of clients make the mistake of thinking if they are exhausted they need an energetic treatment to boost their energy levels but in actual fact this will only work very short term - a bit like the short term buzz you get when you have a coffee or energy drink and after that initial buzz the body will come back down again but probably feeling even more exhausted... for true increases in a clients energy levels the energy needs to be fired up from deep within the body and for that a repletion treatment is totally ideal... Perfect treatment for this time of the year where everything seems to slow down or for anyone who has been under the weather for a few weeks or more and needs a body kick start....

Did you know that if your hips are out of place or out of balance that your whole body could too be out of balance?
Amazingly that problem in your neck and shoulders could all stem from the hips and your glutes?
We at Angel Loving Care spend most of our working lives dealing with clients aches and pains and this is one of the most frequent complaints we often find when dealing with on going bad backs and shoulders...
The glute muscles stabilise your pelvis during running and walking. You need strong glutes to help with hip extension and forward propulsion. Proper alignment of the pelvis, torso and legs also depend on strong glutes. If your glutes are not strong, your entire lower body alignment may fall out of balance -- causing problems such as Achilles tendinitis, shin splints, runner’s knee and iliotibial band syndrome. When the glutes are not strong enough to do their job of extending the hip and pushing the body forward, other muscles not as well designed for the job take over. The hamstrings, low back, quadriceps and calves may become disproportionately strong therefore increasing your risk of injury.
Strong glutes support the back. When your glutes are not activating as they should, your psoas muscle, a hip flexor that runs from the spine to the legs, takes over. An overstressed psoas causes back pain and compression in the lower lumbar vertebrae of the spine. Obviously not all back pain is a result of weak glutes, but it can be a contributing factor in many cases.
Good news is that we can offer you the perfect tailor made back and full body massages incorporating work on the hips and glutes in a safe pain free manner. Most of our clients experience a significant difference even after just one treatment and you will feel so good by the end of your treatment you will be simply purrrrring for more.
So why compromise and live with pain and discomfort - for optimum health you owe it to yourself to say yes to taking time out for yourself and treating your body to a regular massage MOT.
