Spa Concierge I Interview with Ibiza Balance Spa Concierge Aleksandra

What’s your main role as Ibiza Balance Spa Concierge?
Mostly I coordinate between our clients and therapists. I try to find the best fit between the client’s needs and the therapist’s qualifications and experience. I also take care of all the administration for the company.

Spa Concierge at Ibiza Balance

How long have you been on the island?
I’ve lived here since 2012 – this is my second year working with Ibiza Balance.

What do you like most about your work?
The people and their energy – Ibiza Balance has such a lovely team. They’re amazing people but pure professionals at the same time, so I 100% believe in our service – I’m always sure that new and returning clients will be completely satisfied, and that I will always get positive feedback. It’s a wonderful feeling that really makes me love my job.

What qualifications do you have?
By profession I’m a master of pharmaceutical engineering and at our new base – Med Spa Ibiza in Marina Botafoch – I really have the chance to use my knowledge to improve the service, which I’m very grateful for.

What do you think sets Ibiza Balance apart from the rest?
As I already mentioned, it’s the people, including the clients and therapists, who really make a difference – we have so much confidence in each other. Furthermore, I see Ibiza Balance as one of the most professional companies on the island, without any doubt. We aim to have consistency in everything we do but also to challenge ourselves with new plans and projects.

Ibiza Balance Spa Services

Do you enjoy interacting with clients?
My experience with the clients has been really nice. Most of them are here on vacation, so they’re looking for treatments to relax and recover themselves, and it’s a great feeling for me to be able to fulfil their needs and help them refresh their energy.

What’s your favourite thing about the island?
Watching sunsets and taking long walks in search of new areas and secret beaches.

How do you maintain calm with a chaotic summer schedule?
In order to balance I usually distance and make a moment for myself. Then I use that moment to do yoga, read a book, take a walk – something that allows me to be left with my own thoughts.
How do you see the island changing in 2016?
I see Ibiza developing rapidly, with the possibility for longer season becoming more likely. Every year more and more people decide to stay and enjoy quiet winter time, so let’s see. Anything is possible on this island.

Passion: ensuring client satisfaction
Mission: to deliver the best possible service for Ibiza Balance clients
Belief: you can find calm in the quiet
Style: seamless service with a smile
Character: calm, collected and ready for anything

MedSpa Ibiza I Microneedling

Microneedling – the most effective and long-lasting beauty treatment yet – arrives just in time for the 2016 season. Passionate about bringing the latest trends and treatments in the health and wellness world to our clinic, we are constantly evaluating new technologies and non-invasive rejuvenation treatments, searching for brand new and exciting services to add to our menus.

Used to eradicate scarring, age spots, alopecia, stretch marks and other skin conditions, in addition to tightening, brightening and hydrating the skin, Microneedling is a fast, hygienic and efficient transdermal delivery system that works on two levels. Thousands of microchannels are opened via a pen, stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. Conversely, the pen delivers active ingredients chosen specifically for your skin type directly to affected areas, allowing for a concentrated and precise result.

Your skin is rejuvenated through the natural processes of the body plus the direct application of specialised ingredients, dispensed at the transdermal level maximising therapeutic response. The treatment time is short yet detailed and recovery is minimised, allowing you to start enjoying the results almost immediately. As with all treatments at MedSpa Ibiza, Microneedling is done under the supervision of our highly trained medical team.

The pen is fitted with eleven single use needles that enter the skin at specified levels depending on the zone and needs of the skin. Passing quickly over the surface each needle delivers a boosting shot injecting the specified ingredient and provoking collagen production resulting in firmer, smoother and brighter skin. A reduction in age spots, scarring, wrinkles, expression lines and stretch marks are also instantly noticeable. Non-invasive with fast results, youthful, glowing skin is now literally at the tip of a pen.

There are three Mircroneedling treatment options available at MedSpa Ibiza:
* Regeneration: CTC 109 + Vitamin C. NCTC is a special ‘cocktail’ made by Mesoestetic that contains vitamins, coenzymes, amino acids and minerals
* Rejuvenation: Hyaluronic acid + organic silicon, which helps the metabolism of skin cells
* Stem cell: This contains plant stem cells that activate your own stem cells to start multiplying while skin is recovering.

Cost: 120€ for a 45-minute treatment or three sessions for 300€.

About wellbeing in Ibiza: Interview Anika Hölting, Founder Ibiza Balance

After years working as a physiotherapist and wellbeing expert in hotels, spas and cruise liners, and further years spending travelling and studying in different countries, Anika was looking for a place that would combine a healthy lifestyle and the sunshine of the south. She fell in love with the island, the people and its energy and came to Ibiza in 2003.

Why do you think Ibiza is such a draw for health and wellness?

Ibiza is becoming a heaven for international jet-setters who lead fast-paced lives, travel all around the globe and work hard, seven days a week, for the majority of the year. And of course, that’s because the island is the ultimate place to let off steam, to eat well and to party, but it’s also because it’s now considered the perfect destination for rest, relaxation, and kickstarting a fitness. So whether you’re looking for a week of complete and utter blissed-out indulgence, or you’re looking to detox, iron out niggling body issues or start on the path to fitness, the island is the place to do it, and the team at Ibiza Balance are the people you need to call to help make it happen.

 

How do you stay on the cutting edge of treatments?

Much of my training took place in Europe and Asia.  I’m constantly on the lookout for the most up-to-date developments and frequently attending seminars and workshops to further my knowledge of medical and lifestyle treatments. My current focus is in the areas of osteopathy, yoga and medical spa treatments.

 

Do you experience very high expectations from visitors to the villas for villa packages?

Yes of course,  clients renting a villa and spending their most important time oft he year, holiday with family and friends, want to make sure, that all is perfectly arranged and taken care of.

Ibiza Balance brings their entire professional spa set-up directly to the home or villa, creating customised day packages and wellness retreats designed with you in mind.

A variety of packages are available, or the team can design a bespoke experience to suit you. You can opt to have the spa set up anywhere you like – by the pool, in a tranquil bedroom, in a chillout hut, on the deck of your boat, and the team can work with groups or single people at a time – and Ibiza Balance bring everything needed with them, from beautiful towels, relaxing oils and beauty products, massage tables and music, setting up, cleaning up and packing up before and after the experience. The only limit is your imagination, and all you have to do is enjoy…

What treatments are you especially excited about?

Highly recommended is the Ibiza Balance signature massage, combining eastern and western techniques adapted to your needs.

 

What are some common concerns or questions you get from clients?

Most bookings, especially for villas, are massages for group of friends and family or couples, at sunset or morning times who want to enjoy the villa and just relax. To be time-efficient our Spa concierge organises several therapists who work parallel for groups.

 

What are the most popular treatments?

‘Villa Welcome Package’ – a simple massage for yourself and villa guests on arrival to help ease you into your Ibiza holiday

 

Does the Vitamin Drip really cure an Ibiza Hangover?

Vitamindrip® Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy is a treatment that enriches your body with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants; before, during and after all of life’s draining activities.

With IV Vitamindrip® the nutrients enter your bloodstream directly and immediately help the body begin healing itself. Your cells receive a much higher concentration of nutrients when delivered directly via intravenous therapy, thus allowing your body to better absorb and utilize these nutrients and feel empowered again.

 Vitamindrip® Logo Aqua

What trends in wellness will we see in 2016?

Medical Wellbeing is he next level of health and beauty. HydraFacial®, a revolutionary, non-invasive skin technology hailing from Los Angeles that delivers instant results.

MedSpa Ibiza in the heart of Botafoch offers HydraFacial® treatments to men and women of all ages, skin colours and types.

Can you tell us any fun stories about your experiences or any wild requests from clients?

The Ibiza Balance Team is always from new surprised about extraordinary requests from clients such as Yoga morning sessions on a yard infront of Formentera. As well we receive a lot of requests from groups, renting a villa who want to create relaxing moments for their friends and book wellbeing days with yoga and massage at the pool, followed by IV Therapy by our medical doctor, to get recharged for the day after the party. Private drivers bring clients to our permantent location at MED SPA Ibiza to get time-efficient treatments such as HydraFacial®, Vitamindrip®, follwed by an energising massage

 

Can you tell us a little about the private retreats?

Ibiza Balance clients enjoy their very own wellness 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 wellbeing plan from personal training and yoga exercises to medical services and detox programs.

Our aim is your complete relaxation and the feeling of pure bliss!

 

What is a typical day like for you in the high season vs. the low season?

In high season our day starts quiet early, at 8h morning latest. Our trainers and therapists are already on the way to villas and boats, as clients like to be finished with health and wellbeing programs till midday, so they have time to enjoy the beach or seaside programs. Usually the morning and evening times after the beach and before dinner are very busy and highly demanded, too. Many clients already book weeks in advance to make sure they needs are taken care of.

In low season I enjoy island-health offers such as pilates and yoga retreats in different venues, having my juice or raw food breakfast at healthy restaurants

 

Can you tell us a few of your favourite spots on the island, for food,drink, shopping relaxing?

I like „Passion Cafe“ or „Wild Beets“ for healthy food, wellbeing and drinks for breakfast and lunch. Fish Restaurants such es Sa Caletta or Sushi at Harbour Club. Shopping in Ibiza’s small streets for individuals.

 

What do you do to stay healthy?

Living healthy is a big part of my life. I do my daily workouts, mostly early in the moring starting around 7am with one hour condition training such as cicling or running. Parallel im practicing yoga and pilates. We have every morning cold-pressed juices in the house. For my wellbeing & relaxation I do every week a 90minutes massage such as deep tissue with the Ibiza Balance Team. Once a month I receive a ®, Vitamindrip®  for the immune system and HydraFacial for a healthy looking skin.

Ibiza Balance Detox I Yoga & Pilates

It’s time for beach walks, cycling, yoga, pilates and detox programs. Ibiza-lovers schedule their days with health-related activities to give themselves some much needed spoiling after the long summer marathon. It’s time to calm down and enjoy the purity and simplicity of Ibiza. During the quiet and cozy winter months, Ibiza shows a completely different side of itself.

 

WINTER ACTIVITIES

Pilates Studio: Energii – Ibiza Town

It is time to create pure core body tension with pilates. Pilates can be done at a Pilates studio or even on your living room floor. The Pilates method encompasses precise movements designed to stretch and strengthen muscle without adding bulk.

Pilates can empower you to discover your inner strength, increase your stamina and achieve a new and exciting sense of physical well-being. Your posture will improve while you build up strength and tone your abdominals, lower back, hips, thighs and buttocks.

Get your cold and flu defenses up for the winter time!

Vitamin C enhances the immune system of your body, which protects you from colds and coughs. It facilitates the absorption of iron and strengthens your body’s resistance to infection. It also fights against viruses.

Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients. It is a water soluble vitamin and a powerful antioxidant, which fights free radicals in your body, hence protecting your cells. Vitamindrip® Logo Aqua

HydraFacial – The A-list choice at MEDSPA IBIZA

Used as a long-term skin solution, HydraFacial can improve skin tone, texture, breakouts and radiance – a superstar treatment for superstar skin.

MedSpa Ibiza in the heart of Botafoch,  offers HydraFacial treatments to men and women of all ages, skin colours and types. Only available in-spa, due to the nature of the high tech machine used by a trained therapist during your treatment, HydraFacial – the current ‘it facial’ with the Hollywood A-list – targets fine lines and wrinkles, elasticity and firmness, skin tone and vibrancy, texture, hyperpigmentation, congested skin, enlarged pores and advanced signs of ageing.

DSC_7872     MedSpa-WhiteIbiza-17

The computer screen glows as you take your place on the relaxing bed in the treatment room, and your therapist customises the treatment to suit your skin’s needs. Working with a custom-designed ‘Vortex-Fusion’ tip, which is connected to a variety of serums, your therapist works to cleanse and completely exfoliate the skin, extracting impurities and dead skin cells while replenishing with vital hydration and nutrients. Working via temporarily opening your pores and cleansing them completely, the Vortex-Fusion tip delivers antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid while your skin is completely receptive to them, penetrating much more effectively than a traditional hand-applied facial.

Specialists recommend applying the add-on Dermabuilder ampule (with three strengths available) after your HydraFacial treatment, for strong anti-ageing effects that are similar to Botox, relaxing muscles and plumping out fine lines and wrinkles, but minus any of the invasive techniques, irritation or downtime associated with surgical procedures. Completely non-abrasive, HydraFacial offers exceptional skin resurfacing results, without any damage to the skin – forget redness associated with laser or Microdermabrasion treatments – afterwards you can walk out of the clinic with flawless skin and get on with your day immediately.
