The Beer Foot Soak, £26 for 45 minutes
The Mill Wheel Beer Foot Soak entails the feet being dipped in a warm beer bath and left to soak in the combined beer and essential oils combination. This instantly creates a feeling of pure relaxation helping to calm and soothe any tension. This is followed by an invigorating foot scrub which features crushed barley, hops and malts to truly scrub away the impurities. This is finished with a deeply relaxing foot rub using cedar wood, patchouli and lemongrass oils. This is a great anti-Fungal Treatment for the feet and beer bathing is ideal for the skin as the active beer yeast is infused with vitamins.
The Beer Herbal Steam Massage
Full Body Treatment (1hr 15 minutes) £65 or Targeted Back Treatment (30 – 45 minutes) £35
Using the power of herbs (a mixture of barley, hops and malts to replicate the beer goodness), this steam massage uses a unique system to create a heated massage to help relax the muscles and relieve tension. Whilst the infusion scents are released by the steam and absorbed by the skin through a special implement which pulses the oils into the skin. The absorption of the steam is instant and the massage by hand is combined with the machine which creates a lovely calming result.
Guys can complete their spa break (prices from £160.00pp) with a trip to the Three Horseshoes pub straight after their spa session to continue the beer festivities. Spa guests can also look forward to an award-winning 2 Rosette restaurant dinner at The Stables, which offers delicious local food from an imaginative menu. The location means the views from the gardens are magnificent with breath-taking views of the Staffordshire Peak District, Tittesworth Reservoir and the rock formations of the Roaches.
