Hi I'm Sarah Cottam. I’m an independent spa expert with over 15 years’ experience working within the spa and health care industry. I have had the pleasure carrying out and receiving a range of treatments from the painful bikini waxes to the very relaxing massage treatments which are my favourite, nothing beats them for soothing the aches and pains away.
One thing I love to do is look for treatments that will benefit not only the mind but the body - we all want something that really works as well as value for money don't we?
Everyone has some form of stress or neglect to their bodies, which is why I really find it rewarding to help clients, friends and family find the treatment that's right for them. It could be a one off or a course of treatments but with my proven experience, I can provide advice or recommendations for the best treatments to suit your needs. I love to help!
My favourite products in the house are a good body scrub and moisturiser as well as a lip hydrating treatment that works all year round. So let me tell you a little secret I am 30 years old and was given some advice when by my Nana I was younger which I always try to follow and will never forget .
"The secret to young looking skin is to always drink plenty of water and take care of your skin with a GOOD moisturiser or moisturiser foundation that is suited to your skin (with added SPF if possible) - it's never too late to start"
I spend most of my spare time walking with my dog and trying to keep fit. However I do love a great movie at home, catching up with friends and family.
Please take a look at my blogs and tell your friends and if you would like to hear about anything please get in touch. Take care of yourself and pamper yourself - you deserve it!!
Spend your Spa Vouchers in Style!
Spa Breaks and Health Farms are one of my favourite ways to relax and escaping the stresses of modern life, even though I’ve worked in the industry myself! It’s great to escape with a loved one, family, friend/s or just for yourself because you deserve it.
Most spa packages include a number of treatments which will help you recharge your batteries, and who doesn't need that these days? If you’ve been lucky enough to find spa vouchers in your Christmas stocking, why not book yourself something really indulgent?
If you can stretch to it, many spas have packages that last for two, three and even four or more days. Check out the health farms like Champneys and Ragdale Hall if you are in the mood for a few days total relaxation.
Fancy a complete transformation? Well the Champneys Tring Transformation Break could be the best ever start to your New Year, with 12 nights’ accommodation, three massages, body treatments, personal training sessions, Thalassotherapy and more.
Relaxing and enjoying the leisure facilities, Thermal suites, Jacuzzis and saunas is always a memorable experience, especially if given as gift. That's why buying a gift voucher is always a great idea. It could be for a gift for Christmas, birthday or just a thank you either way it a gift that is well received. We all know someone who needs to just take that time out and it’s always an excuse to join them!
When I’ve been on a spa day I remember feeling relaxed and cosy and then waking up the next day feeling refreshed and on top of the world. I can just imagine how I’d feel after 12 days in a spa! Of course you don’t have to go all out and book such a long spa break – your Christmas vouchers and post-celebration bank balance might not support that – but you could opt for two nights at Clarice House in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk instead and enjoy the gorgeous surroundings plus two treatments while you’re there?
I love the smells of the scented candles or oils, the walking around in robes, chilling at the poolside or just enjoying the spa experience with someone. One thing I know is how it makes us feel. If we are nervous or anxious about the day once there and especially when lying in the treatment room having massage or facial treatments, we are in another world. Let's just say it's pure bliss and afterwards not only do we feel great but our skin has benefited too.
If you need any help finding the perfect break for you, give the lovely SpaSeekers team a call and they’ll help find the perfect indulgence…enjoy!
