Why chiropractic?

Your spine and nervous system hold the key to your body’s overall performance and incredible self-healing potential. Spinal misalignments or subluxations can alter or distort the nerve messages from your brain to your body leading to poor function and eventually to health problems.

Chiropractic works by aligning your spine and improving nerve communication between your brain and your body allowing your body to function and heal more effectively.

People of all ages and health levels choose chiropractic as part of their healthy lifestyle. Some come with specific health complaints and others want their body and mind to perform like a top level athlete. With a healthy spine and well connected nervous system your body can perform at its best.

The team of Chiropractors are highly trained (Australia & UK) doctors with over 10 years of experience who enjoy a great reputation on the island.

MedSpa Ibiza: Mesoestetic Collagen 360º Elixir

Product of the month: Mesoestetic Collagen 360º Elixir
Beauty is more than skin deep. That’s why mesoestetic went beyond facial beauty treatments to develop their groundbreaking collagen 360º elixir. This little vial of pure goodness is a drinkable nutricosmetic designed to rejuvenate the skin from the inside out, leaving you luminous and wrinkle free.

Mesoestetic Collagen 360º Elixir
The main ingredient is enriched marine hydrolysed collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the skin providing firmness and resistance. As we age there is a decrease in collagen production and the fibres under the dermis become degraded, leading to damaged tissue, volume loss and wrinkles.
Hydrolysed collagen is easily digested and absorbed into the body allowing the skin to re-establish metabolic balance. In addition to the amazing effects collagen 360º elixir has on the appearance of the skin there are also some incredible health benefits. Regular consumption of collagen can balance amino acid intake, fight inflammation, promote joint health, provide liver support and improve digestion.
meosestetic collagen 360º elixir is specially formulated to deliver an exact dose. Combined with your regular routine or specialised treatments this beauty secret brings results you would not believe. In just six days of use you can expect smoother, more elastic skin and a luminous glow.

How long have you been in Ibiza?

I’ve been living in Ibiza since 2005, and I’ve been part of the Ibiza Balance team since 2010 – it’s been a great six years!

What do you specialize in?

Shiatsu, Traditional Thai massage and Deep Tissue Massage

What do you love most about your job?

I love to help people to relax, feel better, and get rid of aches and pains. It’s a pleasure to see the change in attitude after people have received one of my treatments – you can see it all over their faces.

What are your main educations?

I have studied Shiatsu, Quiromassage, Traditional Thai Massage, various Spa technics and massage for pregnant women.

What do you enjoy most about working for Ibiza Balance?

I like to work with Ibiza Balance because it’s a very professional team that embodies the spirit of partnership and mutual trust. I feel like I am an integral member of the company and I also feel there is a lot of opportunity for professional growth. I have always felt fully endorsed and supported, which makes me feel confident in my own skills.

What are Ibiza Balance clients like?

I have always had very positive experiences with Ibiza Balance clients. In general, the people I have worked with are very polite.

How do you spend your free time?

I love to discover the island through the wonderful places where I go for work. I love Ibiza during the winter, when the island is quiet and it’s without its summer madness. I enjoy the markets, the local festivities and outdoor life. In summer, I like to enjoy my free time by going to the Pou des Lleo beach with family and friends.

What do you do for your own personal balance?

I like to stretch everyday, and to eat as healthily as I can – local and seasonal food. I also like to get a massage at least twice a month, and I also practice yoga.

MedSpa Ibiza: Mesoestetic Moisturising Sun Protection

Mesoestetic moisturising sun protection SPF50+ is one of the best products on the market and stocked here in Ibiza at MedSpa Ibiza. Designed for normal and dry skins, it combines various solar filters to create an effective barrier to UV and UB rays while also hydrating the skin. It’s a lightweight, oil free, broad-spectrum sunscreen that is perfect for daily use and ideal after clinical treatments.

Med Spa Ibiza Mesoestetic

Recent studies have shown what Mesoestetic dermatologists and beauty experts have known all along; over exposure to UV rays is the major cause of premature ageing, wrinkles and irregular pigmentation. The older you get, the more susceptible you are to the adverse effects of the sun’s rays.

It’s not only on the beach or by the pool either. Running errands without proper protection, even on a cloudy day, can be just as bad for you. UV rays attack elastin and collagen causing a loss of structure leading to sagging, wrinkles and roughness. Sun exposure also increases the production of free radicals, which attack the skin’s cells. When the skin is over exposed the top dermal layers release chemicals that cause the blood vessels to swell and lose fluids creating a cycle of dehydration and damage. While you may appreciate a darker skin tone what’s actually happening underneath is making you look older than you really are!

Mesoestetic sun protection is about much more than aesthetics; it can mean the difference between life and death. People who spend a lot of time in the sun are more susceptible to developing skin cancers via damaged and injured dermal cells. It is never too late to start protecting your health.

Our Massage Tip

Detox Massage

Consider going for detox massage that is not only relaxing but also aids your body in the removal of toxic waste. A detox massage can be of great support to any cleansing program you are in. It can address health conditions including fatigue, headaches, fibromyalgia, and other system dysfunctions that result from the presence of toxins in your body.

A detox massage is helpful because of the rhythmic strokes that your therapist apply to stimulate your body. The therapist uses a combination of massage movements including irregular and altering applications of pressure that gently compress and stretch your muscle tissues.

 

Me – time: Private retreats

Ibiza Balance clients enjoy their very own wellness and detox retreat with our spa services by our highly skilled Ibiza Balance health experts, providing a full range of bodywork, massage and beauty treatments during their very own private retreat.
We develop a personalised plan from personal training and yoga exercises to medical services and detox programs.

Ibiza Spa I Ibiza Balance is for everyone

Mobile Ibiza spa service Ibiza Balance is well known on the island for its professionalism, exceptional service and extremely high standards. But beyond its sleek appearance, the true appeal of the company lies in the fact Ibiza Balance is for everyone. There is no exclusivity policy, no minimum spend and no request too small. There is no one size fits all approach at Ibiza Balance. Simply tell them your needs and let them create a world-class wellness solution just for you.

 

Mobile Ibiza spa service Ibiza Balance is well known on the island for its professionalism, exceptional service and extremely high standards

Founder Anika Hölting dreamed of creating a service that was accessible to everyone in Ibiza, of all demographics, from local mums (or mums-to-be), business people and families to the visiting jet set and holidaymakers alike. From a single service such as a 45-minute massage, or gift voucher for an island friend to a full seven-day yoga retreat package, the beauty of the Ibiza Balance experience is that it is tailored to suit your specific needs.

Ibiza Balance Founder Anika

For example, busy island workers and professional business people may not have time to drive to and from a day spa for an energy boosting treatment – they need the results, not the stress of driving in traffic, parking and then having to drive home after a treatment. Having the professional support of Ibiza Balance in your own home can be invaluable, saving so much time, creating space for you to enjoy the island in those rare spare moments.

Mothers can make the most of nap time and arrange treatments in their own home while their child is sleeping, while mums-to-be can also benefit from a pregnancy massage after the first trimester. If you’ve got a small brood, Ibiza Balance can arrange for a nanny to take care of them while you get the me time you need. Or perhaps it’s dad’s turn for a treat – a side-by-side massage with mum could be just what the doctor ordered.

In fact, families can greatly benefit from Anika and her team’s expertise and contacts. Whether you live on the island or are here on holiday, swimming lessons can be arranged for the kids, mini-massages can be given to help relax children, or nannies can step in while parents enjoy a personal training session or parallel massage, or pregnant women can enjoy massage or yoga without having to travel to spas or classes.

Yoga enthusiasts will be thrilled to know Ibiza Balance’s in-house yoga instructors can come to directly to your villa or home, meaning the search for a studio is over. Private yoga retreats can be designed over seven days at a very competitive rate, including treatments and raw food for those looking to deepen their practice.

Fitness fanatics will love knowing they don’t have to ditch the regime when in holiday – personal trainers and Pilates instructors can come to you, for private or group sessions tailored to suit your level. Diet conscious holidaymakers will also be interested to know Ibiza Balance’s private chefs can tailor make juice detoxes or raw food plans for the duration of your stay.

Girls on-the-go will love that they can use their own home as a one-stop shop, as Ibiza Balance can come to you for all your waxing, mani, pedi, eyelash, eyebrow, hair and make-up needs. This service is also great for party girls on holiday, getting ready to hit the town – after all, who has time to search for salons in Ibiza when your holiday time is so valuable?

Ibiza BalanceSpa Services

Speaking of party people – if you’re flying in for the openings, why not add a one or three-day detox experience onto your trip to ensure the trip back to reality is a smooth one? Alternatively, for the time poor, perhaps a mobile micronutrient IV therapy is the answer, delivering vitamins, minerals, amino acids and more directly into the blood stream to get you back to life in no time.

For Anika and her handpicked team of experts, it’s all about delivering what the client wants and needs. All Ibiza Balance treatments and packages are competitively priced to be in line with other companies on the island, while the levels of service remain extremely high. Whether it’s a big or small job, an express or an extended treatment, a A-lister or an island local, Ibiza Balance have the ability to make you feel like the most special person in the world.
