Massage & Beauty

As the pool extension nears completion we're delighted to announce that Chycara will be hosting the Moontree Massage & Beauty Clinic. It's run by 3 qualified therapists, Angi, Nikki & Alex who all specialize in different fields. Together they cover massage, aromatherapy, manicures and even treatment for sports injuries. Angi produces natural products such as soaps, lip balms, hand creams and bath blends, all of which are paraben free. They will be holding pamper days for a special treat, that will include lunch and use of the swimming pool, hot tub and sauna. There'll be more information on the Chycara website soon.
