Recommended Treatment: Cryotherapy, £80 for one 3 minute session

A lot can happen in three minutes. The average heart will beat 216 times, thought we're not sure it will be quite that much inside Apogii's Cryo chamber where temperates reach -109. There's no doubt after three minutes you'll feel great (survivor's euphoria?), though effects are more noticeable on aching muscles, which benefit from a speedier recovery following the freezing temperatures.

The London Hair Lab

Operating from their Hoxton and Mayfair outlets, the London Hair Lab produces extensions that can only be handled by their own hairstylists or fellow industry professionals. As a result, any customer using their products can expect nothing but the highest quality of treatment.

The salon uses keratin bonds and micro bead human hair extensions which are incredibly easy to maintain, comfortable to wear and feel as natural as your own hair. Available in base and balayage colours, with extension lengths ranging from 14 to 22 inches.

IBX Nail Treatment

When we think of beauty treatments we don't immediately think of our nails, but if you're partial to acrylics or gel/ shellac nails, then you need to pencil in some recovery time. IBX works to strengthen your nails and fend off nail damage. Use under gel polish to protect them, underneath a standard polish or even as a standalone to give your natural nails some healing and strengthening time.
