September is up there as one of our favourite months of the year here on Mallorca. A reprieve from the heatwaves of July and August we can get outside more to explore and move our body’s (albeit donning our masks), yet it’s still warm enough for sea swims and al fresco dining. Here’s what Nourish is up to and loving this month.
RIDE THE CLEANWAVE
Cleanwave.org is a dynamic movement of individuals who recognise the urgent need to provide sustainable alternatives to single use plastic bottles on the Balearics, where we consume 1,5 million plastic bottles a day. We love their latest initiative, the Cleanwave WebApp. This nifty app shows us where we can refill our Cleanwave bottles for free at their stations dotted around the island, where to purchase Cleanwave bottles, up and coming events, news, and info, as well as special offers and discounts from Cleanwave partners.
ALCHEMISE YOUR ENERGY
Have you heard of dowsing? This ancient shamanistic art form can when practiced increase your levels of intuition and psychic perception like no other. If you want to create more health and prosperity or raise the energy level of yourself and those around you, dowsing is a great can tool to transform energies, remove obstacles, and invite in that what desire into your life. Transformational Healers Susan Gash and Sven Carlson are holding an Introduction to Dowsing workshop on Sunday September 20 at Bini-Balance Yoga Studio in Binissalem.

AFTER SUMMER SKIN
The summer can leave our skin feeling a little lacklustre and in need of some TLC. With 30 years of experience, we recommend heading to Denise Beauty Salon in Portals Nous for a gorgeous Hydradermie Facial. As one of their unique standout treatments it works absolute wonders on the skin. Utilising beautiful products from Parisian brand Guinot with a hydraderm machine, the skin is oxygenated, and the cells are boosted for deep moisturising and antiaging effects. The treatment is finished with essential oils making it an utterly relaxing and nourishing experience. Denise Beauty Salon, Carretera Palma a Andraxt, 43, Local 16, Portals Nous 07181, phone 971 677 136.
CLEANSING ON THE INSIDE
After Denise so expertly treats our skin, it’s only a short stroll down the road to CleanBreaks Dynamic Detox in the plush Iberostar Grand Hotel, where acclaimed colonic hydrotherapist Raaul Cohen can take care of our insides. Colonics can be a polarising topic. Many of us fall into the, ‘Never, ever’ category without understanding the actual errr….ins and outs (so to speak!). However, as we head into autumn it’s a great time to get past the fear and do your system a real favour. The overall goal of a colonic is to clear the colon of large quantities of stagnant, possibly toxic waste encrusted on the colon walls. Contrary to popular belief a colonic is not painful, and the positive effects are often felt immediately. With over 30 years of experience, and a host of notable clientele you can rest easy in Raaul’s care. Raaul offers a 10% discount to our Nourish Community for all treatments including colonics, blood allergy tests and his popular 4 & 7-Day Detox Programmes (just mention Nourish when booking). For more details or to book an appointment email firstname.lastname@example.org.
THRIVING IN MIDLIFE
As a woman in midlife, the secret to being healthy and happy during menopause and beyond, is to recognise the changes that are happening within your body at that time. It’s very important to understand what hormonal decline is and how it affects the body at various stages. When you understand and recognise the symptoms, you are in a position to proactively turn to functional medicine, and to restore the missing hormones that your body so rightly deserves. An amazing source of information is Menopause Woman, a website dedicated to raising awareness of women’s health during the transitions of menopause; perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause. Founder Jill Davey is a women’s health advocate and author of the fantastically informative book, The Menopause Cure: Hormonal Health.
We’re loving Bikini Beach Boutique & Spa’s ‘Real Women of Mallorca’ campaign, celebrating the amazing women of our island. If you’ve bought something from Bikini Beach this season, take a photo wearing your piece at the beach or by the pool and email it to email@example.com. Their favourite photo will win a 1.5hr facial and massage pampering this month. Bliss! And with plenty of wonderful weather still ahead of us make sure you pop into the boutique to pick up some beautiful beachwear while it’s still in stock. Bikini Beach even has personal shopping appointments available giving you the opportunity to avoid any crowds and feel safe under the current restrictions. Why not combine your personal shopping experience with one of their many beauty and massage treatments to make a day of it?
Wishing you a sensational September,
Love The Nourish Team.x
