World Menopause Day at the Glass House Retreat
World Menopause Day is held every year on the 18th October to raise awareness of the menopause and the support options available for improving women's health and wellbeing.
Set up by the International Menopause Society, the day provides best practice health care information for women through their menopause transition and beyond. The goal is for you to achieve optimal health and well-being and make fully informed, mid-life health choices.
To support World Menopause Day, the Glass House is offering a Menopause-friendly spa day and spa break with treatments, specially-designed food menus and smoothies, and Cryotherapy to help relieve symptons and boost your health and wellness.
Includes spa treatments chosen specifically to help relieve some of the symptons of the Menopause and also help you feel and look fabulous.
Cryotherapy in the Lifecube is a flagship Glass House cold therapy treatment that keeps you cool, improves mood, reduces headaches, supports weight loss (300-800 calories), boosts circulation and strengthens your immune system. And to give you a freshren up, our Elemis Pro-Definition Lift & Contour facial concentrates around your jowl area with a lifting mask & massage to tighten and contour. To complement both treatments, the Glass House Foot Refresher focuses on tired feet and calves, helping increase blood flow and reduce any possible swelling.

Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI)
The theme for World Menopause Day 2020 is Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI). Premature ovarian insufficiency (POI) is a loss of function of the ovaries in women who are less than 40 years of age. The ovaries do not release eggs regularly and do not produce typical amounts of oestrogen.
Women with spontaneous POI have irregular or no periods. Women may or may not have menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes. Approximately one in every 100 women will spontaneously have POI and enter menopause before the age of 40. Spontaneous early menopause (menopause between 40 and 45 years) affects approximately five in every 100 women. (Source: Australasian Menopause Society).
