Egg Relaxation Massaging Capsule Machine
The massage and relaxation egg machine at A Cut Above Aberdeen Hairdresser What it does, costs and the benefits
Cut Above Hairdresser Union Street Aberdeen
A Cut Above Hairdresser in Union Street, Aberdeen boasts the first and so far only Egg relaxation capsule in Scotland. It was designed by massage therapist David Craig to provide 15 minutes of stress relief to people who could simply walk in, lie down with their clothes on and unwind. And it works perfectly. We've tried it out, enjoyed the experience, and felt so much happier and relaxed afterwards.
The capsule is located on the top floor of A Cut Above. You can't miss it as you walk in - it's a big blue egg in the corner, it almost reminded us of a Tardis! The staff give you a briefing on how to use the machine and then you are given complete control. You can open the doors and finish the session whenever you want - though we doubt you'd want to do this as it is such an enjoyable experience.

How The Egg Massage Machine Works
The doors to The Egg gently close behind you and some relaxing music starts. The soothing voice of a lady will give you instructions throughout your session. All you really have to do is to take off your shoes, lie down on the massage bed and forget your cares and worries. Your clothes stay on and no-one is around as you start to relax. The lights will gradually fade and a starry sky will slowly appear. As this occurs relaxing aromatherapy oils will be gently and unobtrusively sprayed into The Egg. The massage mattress will start to vibrate, from your feet right up to your shoulders using wave and pulse therapy. It's a very gentle massage and lovely and relaxing. As your session ends you will see the stars being replaced by the sun and the music will gradually be turned down and then switched off. This takes about 2 minutes, so there's no need to suddenly get up and out: just keep enjoying the relaxing effects. The doors will slowly automatically open when your session ends.
If you've come in a group then there is a comfortable waiting area with magazines and a water cooler and cups. We've always been offered tea and coffee from the friendly staff.
Benefits Of the Egg Massager
The main benefit of The Egg is relaxation. With this comes other benefits such as lowering blood pressure and respirations, improving skin tone, loosening muscles, assisting cellulite reduction, calming the nervous system and promoting a deeper sleep. Regular use will encourage the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkiller, which will improve tiredness, aching muscles and help improve your posture and movement. The Egg is ideal for people suffering from stress, strain, headaches, backache, muscle spasms and period pain.
A 15 minute massage session in The Egg costs £10.
