Clare Anderson, the founder of the Lava Shells and kokolokahi brands, who has more than 25 years’ experience in the luxury spa and skincare industry, has launched a new product house and holistic wellbeing brand: Sensory Retreats.

The full range of holistic treatments will be available in March 2020 to selected spas nationwide. Taking the spa experience to the next level, Sensory Retreats offers an “enchanting and exclusive journey” of the senses using natural ingredients, mindful experiences, massage techniques and the healing power of touch, sounds and crystals to helping the spa guest to relax, rebalance and reset.

These “innovative and deeply restorative” massage treatments, range of retail products and personal experiences, are designed to “elevate personal wellbeing to the highest level and bring increased balance and enjoyment to our lives” through the power of the five senses: sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.

Using a Sensory Retreats Oil, combined with carefully curated advanced massage techniques and additional touches, each massage treatment has been developed to stimulate all five senses and deliver a specific wellbeing benefit. There is a full complement of massage treatments on offer under the Sensory Retreats brand umbrella including the Sensory Retreats Divine Escape Massage and the Sensory Retreats Lava Shells Massages using the world famous Lava Shells.

Announcing the launch of Sensory Retreats, founder, Clare Anderson, commented: “The need to retreat from daily life, if even for a moment has become increasingly important and necessary for our emotional and mental self-care. From my own experience working with over 2,000 UK spas and developing product lines, I didn’t feel that traditional spa massage treatments and aftercare which work on just one or two of the senses were fully providing this solution. As a result Sensory Retreats was born, a collection of holistic wellbeing treatments, products and experiences from around the world which envelops all five of our senses, cocooning the user into their own mini retreat whether this is in spa, at home or on location.”
