For all of August, National Wellness Month focuses on self-care, promoting healthy routines and managing stress. It's all about creating healthy habits in your life that will stay with you for the year ahead, and make you feel revitalised and ready to take on the world.
According to research, self-care is known to help cut stress levels and enhance happiness. Even the smallest efforts can reap significant rewards. So, why not head over to Rathbone Square where there's plenty to indulge yourself in on the wellness front, and see what a difference you can make to your mood, your mind, your body and your life? Let's take a look at what's on offer this Wellness Month here at Rathbone Square.
Pampering for the guys...
A new look can work wonders for your well-being. And that's precisely what you could be walking out with after a visit to Adam Grooming, Rathbone Square's very own atelier and one of the highest rated and most reviewed men's barbers in London.
Put yourself in the capable hands of Adam's exceptionally skilled team, and prepare to be indulged with the likes of luxurious hot towels and balm, a relaxing scalp massage or a soothing wet shave, all topped off with a drink of your choice courtesy of the team.
Uplifting treatments for the girls...
So that's the guys sorted at Rathbone Square for Wellness Month, but what about the girls? Well it's time to head over to Rawr where there's a team of beauty experts ready and waiting to give you the makeover you just know you owe yourself.
Treat yourself to a luxury manicure, a soothing pedicure or a calming massage, or go all-out with one of the brand's wow-factor treatments. From sculpting brow lamination to sensational eyelash extensions, you are guaranteed to leave the salon feeling stunning from the inside out courtesy of the revolutionary beauty techniques that Rawr has become so well known for.
If you're part of the 'look good to feel good' following, then book yourself in to Vixen & Blush, the home of natural-looking hair extensions at Rathbone Square. Recognised industry wide as London's leading dedicated hair extensions salon, Vixen & Blush specialises in creating customised extensions on an individual basis.
Using only the finest hair, the brand is widely featured across the media. And it is no wonder, with a team made up of highly qualified hairdressers with a minimum of ten years' London salon experience apiece, and a mantra that says hair extensions should be fitted by stylists rather than technicians, you are set to experience only the most outstanding results as your crowning glory is truly transformed.
...and fitness for all
Over at Digme Fitness it's time to make health a priority this Wellness Month. So much more than a gym, family-founded Digme is more like a friendly community, welcoming people of all fitness abilities and helping them to set their goals high and strive to achieve more. If feeling exhilarated is top of your workout agenda, this is the place for you.
Named after a beach in Hawaii that's famed as the start line for the renowned Ironman World Championship, Digme offers luxury changing facilities, a hearty smoothie bar that's perfect for post-workout refuelling, and some of the most cutting edge fitness equipment you'll find in the heart of London. Choose from a variety of classes including spin, HIIT and fusion, as well as a free run club every Monday.
Wellness from within
Taking small steps towards a healthier eating regime is a great way to celebrate Wellness Month. Subtle swaps can make quite a difference, whether it's switching from pop to smoothies or meat to plant-based. As well as a taste-bud tempting, freshly prepared vegetarian and vegan food offering, White Pine at Rathbone Square presents an array of delicious and nutritious smoothies and speciality teas, all of which form part of its cruelty and plastic-free range.
There's also an enticing range over at Joe & the Juice. Start the day with an acai breakfast bowl packed with healthy delights like avocado, goji berry and strawberries, or a spirulina bowl brimming with granola, dates and green spirulina.
Indulge in a vegan shake, or a super-refreshing Joe & the Juice signature iced drink such as the Green Mile, packed with apple, spinach, broccoli, lemon and avocado, or a Herb Tonic laced with antioxidant turmeric, ginger, pineapple and red bell pepper. Of course, as the name suggests, there's also a seriously huge variety of superfood juices, shakes and shots, as well as salad bowls, Paninis, snacks and treats. Well, a little bit of what you fancy does you good, as the saying goes!
