INTRODUCING Jasbah, the city spa where health and wellbeing are naturally treated. Offering a range of natural therapy, massages and programmes, Jasbah is perfect for anyone looking to improve their mental and physical health in a luxurious manner.
Sandra dos Santos opened Jasbah, located near the Pine Cliffs resort in Albufeira, in February of this year. She began her studies into massage therapy six years ago, and can now offer treatments in an extensive range of massages. The peaceful spa consists of two downstairs treatment rooms, a relaxation area and an upstairs Asian themed room for floor work.
Jasbah offers unique specialist treatments, catering to many of the problems our bodies encounter. Skin treatment products include the Jasbah Facial Purifying Dead Sea Mud, which contains a variety of minerals with healing qualities that can reduce wrinkles and revitalise skin. Jasbah Facial Rebalancing uses seaweed to combat skin damage from free radicals and clear acne. Another treatment which helps maintain a natural youthful appearance to skin is the Jasbah Facial Rejuvenation Deluxe, which uses cacao, known to contain properties which encourage endorphins.
The range of massages available are even more varied, including the Hot Stone Massage, which uses smooth, heated basalt stones, placed on specific acupressure points of the body, to melt away knots and tension. The hot stone experience relieves pain and promotes harmony, balance and peace within the body.
Other treatments worth trying include the Ayurvedic massage and the Vichi Aromatherapy; the latter involves a water massage to aid circulation. Chocoholics should definitely immerse themselves in Chocotherapy – a relaxing massage, with a pleasant chocolate wrap applied all over the body, which softens, moisturises and nourishes your skin. The cocoa in the wrap contains natural anti-oxidants to improve blood circulation and even encourage weightloss!
Jasbah offers six special packages, which can last between two to four days, focusing on balancing, relaxing and detoxing your body. The four-day Jasbah Package comprises of a body wrap, a facial, a Vichy massage, a hot stone massage and a reflexology session.
Another unique programme, proving popular with clients, is the natural weightloss programme. This involves a range of specialist treatments, including an anti-cellulite wrap. If the customer aids the process by taking the advice given to them outside of the therapy, Sandra says the “treatment always breeds successful results”. The process also refers to the blood type diet, made famous by Dr D’Adamo and his book Eat Right 4 Your Type, which advocates that your blood type is the most important factor in determining a healthy diet, indicating which foods you should and should not eat.
Jasbah also has a shop offering herbal teas, natural supplements for several health problems, vitamins, biological food products, natural creams, essential oils and soaps. The shop also supplies the exclusive Spanish beauty brand Sivana.
Sandra encourages healthy and natural eating to all her clients, as only through healthy living will the real benefits of the treatments be most effective.
Sandra will soon be qualified to perform lymphatic drainage and chiropractic on her clients. Both services are complementary to the other services offered, and are essential for the proper functioning of the body. Other services available at Jasbah include reiki, shiatsu, biorgonomy, reflexology, aesthetic treatments, as well as waxing and beauty treatments.
Jasbah is open from 9am until 9pm Monday to Saturday, Sundays are appointment only. For more information, visit www.sunrise-lmg.com/spa_jasbah.php or call 914 053 018 or 961 233 429.
