•    ESPA Holistic Hand and Nail Treatment with Volcanic Stones: your hands are
     your main letter of introduction, and probably one of the most useful parts of
     your body, but they also suffer from the use of soap, chemicals, and lack of
     moisturisers and care.
     Length: 50min.
     Aim: to deeply nourish and soften.
     Ingredients: Volcanic Stones, aromatherapy oils and paraffin wax.
     Technique: the treatment starts with a gentle exfoliation, followed by a therapeutic
     massage with hot volcanic stones and aromatherapy oils, personalised to meet
     individual needs. A warm paraffin wax envelopment is then applied. To finish,
     nails are buffed and nail varnish is applied.
