Bamford is the most impressive and high quality brand I have ever worked with.
Created through the vision of Lady Bamford, she wanted to produce food, clothing and beauty products that were entirely natural after the birth of her first child. The result is Bamford.
As part of my training with Bamford I spent a week at The Haybarn in The Cotswolds. For anyone based in the UK, a visit to The Haybarn should be on your to do list!
You can spend the entire day there and indulge in Bamford Spa treatments, enjoy their coffee shop, dine in their restaurant, experience their organic farrm, Daylesford (the largest organic farm in the UK), shop in their clothing store and even take cooking and florestry courses. I was there to get some intensive training into the Bamford product range and study all their massages, facials and treatments.
Why is massage important after skiing?
Massage warms up the skin. It gets blood flowing to the muscles. It brings back circulation. It removes toxins and lactic acid. Oxytocin (the feel good hormone) is released into the body through the physical contact and from the oils. Massage helps with relaxation, drains toxins, add nutrients to the skin. We use aromatherapy in the treatments to further enhance this experience and process.
The main Bamford Oils:
- 90% of guests in BC chalets choose these oils.
- There are also oils such as camomile and rosemary available.
Best Bamford massage for after ski
For skiers, the best massages, and the most popular are Swedish and deep tissue massage. Swedish massage is very good for sport. Although you can’t sleep during it! Deep Tissue is also very effective after sport. It is both energising and relaxing. You will feel energised, re-boosted, and ready for your next day on the slopes.
Bamford Haybarn Spa in the Cotswolds is a centre of wellbeing, that nurtures the mind, body and spirit, based on Bamford's heartfelt connection with nature.
