Our new site – 2/2 Tory Street, opening Mid August

Thank you to all our wonderful Bodyhaven clients for their support over the last little while after having been given the news of the closure of the Amora hotel, where we are based, for renovations.

We are pleased to announce that we will be relocating to 2/2 Tory St.


This is opposite the QT Hotel in lower Tory St and we are looking forward to bringing our brand new spa to you shortly. Please bear with us as we go through the necessary building processes and we are aiming for a mid July opening.

In the interim we will be offering a mobile service where we can come to you!!! Get a group of friends together and have a “spa” party and we can organise our highly trained therapists to provide you and your friends with pampering in your own home or workplace. Please continue to stay in touch with us via our website or email on and let us know if there are any other ways that we may be able to provide our fabulous services to you.

We are excited about not only our new site, but also the future when we go back into the newly refurbished Amora Hotel.

It’s Winter….here’s what’s happening at Bodyhaven

Lactic Peels, Antioxidants and Cosmeceuticals.

Antioxidants are vital to help combat the damaging effects of free radicals and protect our skin and body’s cells. Free radical damage is caused by the effects of the sun’s harmful rays, pollution, cigarette smoke, unhealthy diets, medications and other external environmental factors. We consume antioxidants through certain foods but our skin also needs extra protection via topical applications as the skin is often the last to receive the benefits of antioxidants consumed orally.

Natural, healthy cells are surrounded by pairs of electrons. When the bond between electrons deteriorates and the electrons split, the unstable electron starts searching for a new molecule to steal and attach itself to in order to regain stability. This results in a chain reaction and as we age the damage can accumulate and become irreparable.

Antioxidants act as scavengers, by sharing their electrons with unstable molecules and help stop further oxidation and damage to tissues and DNA at a cellular level. Our bodies require a daily supply of antioxidants internally and externally to maintain healthy cell function. Studies have shown that antioxidants can help to slow the ageing process and antioxidants absorbed through food can help to fight disease and regenerate cells.


Where nature and science come together, our carefully formulated Cosmeceutical range incorporates bio-active botanical extracts together with pure and potent nutrients to soak up free radical stress and minimize the effects of ageing

Raw Materials in our products: Alpha Lipoic acid – Vitamin E- Coenzyme Q10 – Vitamin A and C  Rosemary Antioxidant – Green Tea Liquid Extract – Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The awards are the pinnacle of achievement for luxury spas and are based on votes by spa guests and feedback from a global panel of spa industry professionals. Recipients are recognised for setting benchmarks in quality, innovation and service for spas around the globe.

The exclusive black tie event on Saturday 18 June was attended by some of the world’s top hoteliers and leading decision-makers. There were 22 competing spa categories and 38 countries participated from across the globe.

Bodyhaven Spa, located in Wellington’s Amora hotel, is owned by Ana Maria Moore, an internationally renowned spa and wellness consultant with more than 25 years of international experience in the spa industry.

Skin So Sensitive According to the Danish Asthma and Allergy Association as many as 10% of the Danish population suffer from contact allergies attributed at least in part to cosmetic exposure. Anyway, suffice to say that contact allergies are no fun at all and by the look of it lots of people are suffering. This is why it’s so important to choose the right products to put onto your skin, organic with active ingredients is best; ASPECT, Advance Skin Technology, All available here at Bodyhaven Spa.

Why Are There So Many Ingredients in a Commercial Brand? We do get asked this quite a lot by our spa visitors and sometimes we don’t get asked why but we do understand that there is a lot of awareness and our frequent visitors crave for knowledge, making the decision that their philosophy is simplicity with what few ingredients they do want having to be pure, natural and recognisable. Commercial brands often seem like a chemical soup with ingredient lists stretching into 15 or maybe 20 ingredients and making the same but different – with only say 5 natural lovely things is ultra-appealing. We totally understand that mind-set but also know this can lead to a case of death by oversimplification where instead of a safe, natural concoction you end up with either microbe soup or a physical wreck.
