Take your senses on a journey with a restful Rasul Ritual

A trip to The Falls Spa is the perfect excuse for some well-deserved ‘me time’. Completely revitalise yourself and drift away into a world of utter relaxation in our state-of-the-art spa, one of the finest in the Lake District.

Although when many people think of a spa day the first thought that comes to mind may be a soothing massage or a calming facial, many people are yet to discover the benefits of a sensual rasul ritual.

Designed to invigorate your skin using the highest quality products, this therapy works wonders in turning back the hands of time and making your skin look and feel youthful again.


What is a Rasul?

The rasul ritual dates back to ancient Arabian times when people would source warm mud, specially selected for its mineral rich properties and apply it to one another’s face and bodies in an attempt to soothe the skin.

The word rasul itself refers to a mud chamber, or in ‘ this case, a heated steam room. The idea behind it, adopted from these ancient principles, is that people can cleanse their body and mind using a combination of mud, steam and heat.

For this reason, the ritual is suitable for 2-4 people

What products are used during the Rasul Ritual?

At The Falls Spa, we use only the highest quality products that are gentle to the skin and work hard to rejuvenate. We chose La Sultane de Saba, a deluxe artisan spa brand whose products have revolutionised modern skincare.

Their ethos is based entirely around natural and therapeutic remedies from across the globe that have been passed down through generations. As a result, La Sultane de Saba products are made from rare ingredients that promote wellness, healing and completely remediate tired skin.

The incredible textures and scents of their products provide benefits not only for your skin, but also for mind and soul.


What are the health benefits of using a Rasul?

A rasul therapy is not only great for your physical wellness, but the experience provides instant psychological benefits also. As well as unveiling soft, youthful skin following the treatment, the ritual is designed to promote metabolic benefits.

Cleanses the body

The concept of the steam therapy is that increased perspiration works to expel toxic waste from within the body, regulates our body temperature and energizes our skin – the largest organ of the body. This cleanses the body of various salts, antibodies, lactic acid plus many more.

Improved circulation

When the body is exposed to heat, our blood circulation is improved and the blood supply travels directly to the skin’s surface. As a result, we experience tension relief through muscle relaxation and circulation continue runs smoothly due to the elimination of toxins through opened pores.

Stress reduction

The process also works psychologically to reduce stress which occurs through hormonal changes within the body, encouraged through the combination of heat, water and perspiration all involved in the ritual.

Invigorates the skin

The gentle products used during the therapy are even beneficial for more sensitive skin conditions, leaving the skin of those who suffer from psoriasis or eczema soft to touch and less irritated.
