Body Therapy – From the Greek Thermaes and the Turkish Baths we have arrived to present day, where the word spa (which originally meant “health through water”) is now synonymous with luxury and pampering. But often lost in the body therapy experience is the importance of health of the skin.
Buried in the most extensive body therapy menus are the actual skin benefits, which contribute as much to our health as the other activities found in skin treatment centres.
Body therapy treatments should be serious, results driven treatments that address specific conditions of the body’s skin, while providing the emotionally and physically positive benefits of touch and heat to the client.
Central to the results of each Dermalogica body treatment is Body Mapping SM, the zone-by-zone analysis that provides the most accurate prescription of your professional body treatment and home skin care regimen.
The importance of body therapy to skin health, and heat’s ability to evoke change in the body, is as ancient as the original treatments that are still practiced today.

Skin health is important for your entire body – which is why Dermalogica has Body Therapy products, designed with the same philosophy that looking good is a product of skin health from head to toe. Correct care of the skin on your body is vital to proper health maintenance, as well as the avoidance of the signs of premature ageing. The Dermalogica Body Therapy system helps you create aromatherapeutic, completely customised and healthy spa experiences inbetween visits to your skin treatment centre.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How is Thermal Body Therapy different from Spa Body Therapy?
Thermal Body Therapy incorporates the principles of heat and the importance of keeping the body in the thermal netural zone – to keep the client comfortable, and to increase product penetration for enhanced skin benefits. Our exclusive Thermal Touch Techniques (three specially created manipulations) will enhance the effectiveness of the products and help keep the body warm.
- Do I really need a body treatment?
Yes of course you do! It’s extremely important that you treat the whole body as well as looking after the skin on your face. Body treatments are amazingly relaxing and help promote a rebalancing and stress reducing curative state of mind.
- Can body treatments help with specific skin concerns on my body?
Most definitely! Dermalogica are experts in skin care. And you don’t just have skin on your face. If you suffer from breakouts or acne on your back then we can help address these problems using a variety of treatments and products from your mediBac range. You will be prescribed a home care regime to help keep issues under control inbetween treatments.
- Are body treatments good if I get waxed?
Your skin is much more prone to ingrown hairs and dryness after waxing due to the harsh nature of the treatment. So regular exfoliation (scrubs) and moisturising with Dermalogica products will help keep your skin trouble free after hair removal.
