Well I’m finally back writing which for me feels great.
Writing for me constantly feels like coming home, I personally write every day and for a while now have been looking for some way to reach our clients who are spread around the world, with it being less social media engineered.
Although with most we have weekly catch ups on instagram which is great.
Using another place for me to write and say hello and put into words what we actually offer as a service and a business is wonderful.
Incase this is our first time meeting, hello I’m Louise and I own Mountain Wellness Mallorca with our subdivisions of the Yoga studio, the Wellness Salon, the Manicure and Pedicure studio and the mobile business Spa@Home Mallorca, which is coming up for its 10th birthday. We also have the retreat side where we go in and help support visiting masters in their field, plus the Hotel division where we look after 3 hotels. Yes life is very busy for us, especially from late March till October.
Our team consists of four very talented therapists during the season and two from November till March. Our mission to start with was to always provide high level of service and luxury within the homes of local and visiting tourists. This hasn’t changed.
The Hotel side was developed during the initial stages and we were able to support and build up spa treatments in hotels that hadn’t had this before. This was a main focus whilst growing the mobile buisness along side.
Last year we decided to create a center in the community of Deia, which has always been our base. This opportunity was very special as not only did we open in a beautiful and historic house, we also had neighbours around us for the first time in the centre of the village. This meant that we also created a space for anyone who needed a place to come have treatments, take a class and really relax.
We started to hold weekly classes, in the small yoga shala and offer a full range of treatments from our treatment room, this year adding a manicure and pedicure salon in the front of the studio.
As we grow we are still committed to keeping the level of luxury to the highest level.
All our therapists have years of experience.
During the summer we had over 50 years of experience spread out between the four of us, amazingly we have all worked on water and returned to land after working in luxury spas and having high levels of standards input in us. Traveling is all in us as well which makes for a very interesting team. Fun is also a big part of our buisness and I hope as much fun that I have, the girls have it too.
We are a female team led by a female boss, which is something very cool.
Our mission and hope for 2020 is to welcome new people to Mountain Wellness in Deia. We shall be opening our doors to some interesting traveling specialists as well, which will keep things very exciting and will continue to support Retreats, the Hotels and of course our very much loved Spa@home clients who we cant believe we have been doing for the last 10years! What a huge achievement that is.
Thank you if you have read this far for staying with me, I’m happy to share much more with you in the coming weeks.
For now, with much love from a winter Deià.
Louise and the team at Mountain Wellness

Here at Mountain Wellness we are in love with cupping. It is an alternative way to destress, detox and kickstart your system.
The History of Cupping Therapy
Cupping therapy has been around for years . It developed over time from the original use of hollowed out animal horns (the horn method) . Into bamboo cups and eventually replaced by glass and silicone. The True origin of cupping still remains uncertain to this day. Some of the earliest pictorial records date back to the Egyptians around 1500BC . Translations of the oldest medical textbook, detail the use of cupping for treating fever, pain and vertigo. Cupping is a powerful healing treatment.
What the treatment does.
By applying suction (or an area of low pressure) to specific meridians/acupressure points, it mobilizes stagnant bloodflow to help aid and promote healing.
Latest studies show that cupping treatment is proven to help back pain, knee pain and neck pain too.
Lots of well know celebrities have been seen with cupping marks, cupping has become a new go to treatment. Even though it been around for a long time. We see people more and more with cupping marks. Just the other day I was in the car following a cyclist around the mountain and you could see he had some work done on his shoulders.
People seem to be worried and its been mentioned in the press alot about the marks left after a cupping treatment. 1st thing you have to know is that, they are not bruises. The marks result from dredging stagnation from within bodily tissue, up closer to the surface of the skin. Helping to restore flow of energy and blood to the areas treated . Marks can last 3 days to 1 week. Also when you touch the marked area you have no pain so it doesnt feel like a bruise at all. Plus you can see what exactly your areas of concern are. You will be amazed at what the cupping treatment can pick up.
We have noticed not only amazing results with pain management but also as a fantastic anti cellulite treatment.
Im sure like many people you have tried the lastest in technology and anticelluite creams. I have tried most on the market and have done most more advanced techniques using machines. Whilst the results with those techniques are great. Cupping whilst not pain free (the more cellulite you have the more it can be slightly unconfortable although this lessens as time goes by and the more treatments you have) has amazing results in really breaking down and helping too remove the toxins from stubbon fat deposit areas. Whilst exercersice and eating correctly is of course necessary, we have started to do courses here to help kick start your system and detox any areas you may need some help with.
4 weeks Intensive anti-cellulite course

Total 4 50minutes treatments
12 25minutes treatments
Total price of course 400€ normal price 680€

Love from the mountains and the spa @home
So I’m back on a blog its been a while, I will be here weekly for the next year, telling you all about what’s going on in Deia, in my world, any health tips, yoga outlooks, talking about all things from the benefits of massage, cupping facials, new manicure collections, tips to look after your hair. Now don’t worry its not going to be only me talking at you, I will also share insights from other people. Who will definitely know a little bit more about diet and hair, the other bits I’ve got covered. So settle in and let me tell you why I’m back.
So 2018 started with me knowing that this was the year we finally got premises. It’s been 8 years on the road, and finally our base full time has arrived, if you follow me on social media you know that we love spa@home. Actually the team I have at the moment argue over it, and personally as a boss you see how well they work where there days are full of a healthy mixture of Spa@home, Mountain wellness inside of hotels and NOW in Villa Rullan.
So I have known about Villa Rullan for a while now, but this being the biggest moment of my life as a buisness owner to bring it into the center of the Village. Spa @ home has always been very much under the radar. Who knew about knew through word of mouth and we are recommended that way. I personally love the fact that we are connected that way, the other side of things are people who have know us for years. So being in the center of the village was and is a huge deal as it really exposed us in Deia. This was the reason why it took the name Mountain wellness which has been the branch of our hotel division for the last 6years. This includes Hotel es moli www.wellnesshotelesmoli.com hotel cas xorc www.casxorc.comand hotel des Puig www.hoteldespuig.com We also service the private villas down in Son Buynola www.virginlimitededition.com/en/son-bunyola
So October last year after being told to pull my finger out and feel the fear and do it anyway. I went and had a meeting, and finally entered into what would be come Villa Rullan. My heart sang but it was not what I had expected, so that was that, From that moment I had found the STUDIO for Mountain yoga 30years early and finally the base for spa@home Mallorca. It makes me cry just writing that. So after much thinking, huge amounts of fear and lots of thoughts of doubt we went on and so began the project that you see today.
I told no one except the inner circle although voices started to mix in the village, I wasn’t ready yet, I read so many interior magazines about what my sink and units should look like, I did my own website, it was like starting again, the best was taking inspiration from local people and doing my own retail units and the little table that sits in the yoga studio. The painting party was not what I had expected but the units were done and I’m happy. Things finally started to come together and the big clean happened by the end of April. We opened on the 29th and had huge support which was just amazing people wanted to come see.
It has also made life a lot easier, this is where we now do all our manicure, pedicure and waxing. Making it easier for myself and the girls to have a beauty salon in the village and not be responsible for wax in other peoples houses. Also the salon is open for the quick treatments an eyebrow shape, eyelash eyebrow tinting (patch test required 24hours before). We also have our lunch time treats which if your looking for a quick pamper are perfect.
Mini treats and add on treatments.
Foot massage (let tired feet relax using pressure points, starts with a foot bath)
Back massage (relax and revive)
Mini Facial (cleanse,exfoliate and mask. Skin boost)
Head massage (with or without oils )
Face and scalp massage. (Using organic oils)
Cupping (back layout increase circulation)
Light leg (just for legs massage, float out )
Bright eyes (mini treat just for the eyes includes massage mask and cooling eye roller)
Its also used as we have found as a retreat for many people out of there houses and the craziness when you have lots of people staying or just general family life. A place to relax and have a couple of hours treatment in our big memory foam massage couch.
We are open 7days a week 10-7 appointment only tho most days you can also call in and see if we are about. Monday- Friday we have the yoga class which is growing a community as we speak. Monday Wednesday and Friday yoga is at 8am Tuesday Thursday at 9.30am its a flow class we get you moving and breathing, mostly its fun.
This is the start of the new base for spa@home Mallorca www.spaathomemallorca.comits been great so far and I’m looking forward for everyone to come use the space.
This year we will also be working with different types of people workshops and maybe a beauty party or two. I will update this blog as much as possible.
Hope your week is beautiful
