Denise Leicester launches Soul Medicine vibration therapy

Denise Leicester, founder of organic spa brand Ila, has collaborated with drummer and composer Tom Simenauer to create Soul Medicine, a series of vibrational therapy music tracks designed to promote wellbeing and cellular balance, as well as decrease stress levels and boost resilience.

Consisting of four tracks: Being Held, Being Present, Being Loved and Being Lifted, Soul Medicine enables listeners to choose a vibrational remedy best suited to their needs.

The tracks are based on 432Hz tuning and Leicester says they’re clinically proven to have a positive effect on the brain and central nervous system and that they aid immune response, thanks to increased white blood cell activity and red blood cell circulation. Bio-resonance testing also shows a reduction in cellular stress.

She says: “Hearing is one of our primal senses. Sound can relax, alert, soothe, inform and transport us. Pure and healing sound vibration can be heard by the soul and can activate the deepest healing responses.

“Soul Medicine lets you connect back to your essence, learn to listen to your heart and allows your soul to shine.”

In addition, Leicester has created two meditation mists, Inner Calm and Inner Smile, to enhance the user’s listening experience.

Helmut Eigenmann explains new visual relaxation experience, Wave Dream Multicolour

 

Helmut Eigenmann
 

Swiss company, Thin Waters Design has launched the Wave Dream Multicolour (WDM) – a visual relaxation experience that displays calming images of water onto the walls and ceiling.

Designed for relaxation rooms, the WDM consists of a projection lamp positioned beneath a water basin. Using a high-powered LED bulb, the projector illuminates the surface of the water from beneath and projects it around the room while a system of coloured LEDs located on the border of the water basin provide a soft ambience, that continuously changes colour.

An upgrade of its previous model, the Wave Dream, the WDM features two key improvements: up-to-date LED technology, which enables easier maintenance and higher quality projections, and a revamped projector, powered by a high-powered LED, which acts as a direct light source without the need for a mirror.

“The new Wave Dream Multicolour works on the principle of direct light projection instead of reflection by mirror, thanks to new LED technology. This optical improvement, combined with a sophisticated colour LED system creates a surprising and fascinating relaxation experience,” says Thin Waters Design founder Helmut Eigenmann.

“Spa guests with refined aesthetic tastes would expect to find WDM in an art museum, which is where its story began.”

Marine skincare brand Thalion has launched a brand new face mask, which features patented technology to signify when it needs to be removed.

A professional peel-off mask, the Chrono-Colour Youth Mask contains active marine ingredients, including sea age 3A, palmaria palmata algae and vitamin C to hydrate the skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also been formulated to reduce inflammation and give a youthful appearance.

The mask uses natural colour change technology, a Thalion exclusive, to change the mask to a light pink colour, serving as a time indicator for the therapist, letting them know that the ingredients have been absorbed into the skin and the treatment is over.

“It’s in Thalion’s DNA to create new treatment experiences. As a creator of cutting-edge marine cosmetics, we are always imagining innovative treatment techniques and developing new textures,” explains Thalion’s training director Sophie Alemany.

“This new professional mask follows this brand strategy: patented colour-change technology combined with marine active ingredients to arouse clients’ sensations and emotions,” she adds.

Solace Spa project highlights Tudelü’s versatility, says Joel Klein

Tudelü, a New York-based creator of bespoke room partitions, has developed the Double Wall System, an innovative electronic room separator.

Recently installed at The Solace Spa in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, the Double Wall System features two retractable walls that disappear into the ceiling. It is designed to enable operators to optimise and adapt the space they have at just the touch of a button.

For The Solace Spa project, the company was tasked with creating a system that would separate the reception and treatment areas, and would ensure privacy, while also being flexible enough that operators could open up the space for events, as well as being attractive to look at. Now serving as a backdrop for the main reception area, the Tudelü wall has been designed to be indistinguishable from the other walls and features the spa’s colour scheme and branding, with the spa logo at its centre.

“The Solace Spa project exemplifies the versatility of Tudelü and how it can be used in the most tranquil of spaces,” says Joel Klein, founder and CEO of Tudelü.

“Serving a dual purpose, the wall seamlessly adds their branding into another aspect of the space,” Klein adds.

Spa consultancy firm Deep Nature has developed a range of skincare using proven active ingredients to target different skincare concerns.

The four-piece collection consists of DIY face masks, with a copper mixing bowl and whisk and a body scrub.

The masks were developed using Brazilian clay, Japanese bincho-tan charcoal, and seaweed sourced from the Iroise Sea, to detoxify, clarify and soften the skin. Meanwhile, the body scrub is formulated with Icelandic volcanic powders to naturally exfoliate and cleanse the skin.

The mixing bowl and whisk are added to encourage users to mix and match the products in order to create their own bespoke skincare routines

“We had a lot of requests for this kind of offering. We also wanted to control the quality of the products we were selling in our spas, so we developed our own,” says Ghislain Waeyaert, VP of development at Deep Nature.

“We chose a DIY concept to appeal to a new generation of spa goers and encourage their creativity. We believe that our guests know what’s best for them and should be able to customise their products to their needs and desires.

Luxury towelling specialist, BC Softwear has partnered with Irish spa consultant Peigin Crowley to create a new range of bespoke linen designed specifically for the treatment room.

Pure Spa Linen is an eight-piece collection, consisting of pillowcases, sheets, duvet and duvet covers, specially sized for treatment couches, as well as towels, jumbo sheets for bigger treatment beds and custom valances.

Manufactured in Turkey, the linens are made from 100 per cent combed white cotton and feature a hand embroidered border. They’re available in three different colours – silver grey, pebble or pure white to coordinate with BC Softwear’s existing towelling product range.

“We believe that a five-star treatment begins with the touch of a bathrobe and the smooth feel of the spa linen on the skin before the treatment commences.” says Barbara Cooke, managing director of BC Softwear.

“This collection has been created with some of our most exclusive clients in mind. The cotton linen is very stylish with a sensation of exceptional luxury and softness, designed to give clients a feeling of total pampering during their spa treatment,” Cooke adds.
