I have a massive confession to make.
I’m not really a massage sort of person. (please don’t throw stones at me!)
Now, I know many people swear by them for relaxation and health purposes, but I always struggle to let things go to benefit fully from it.
However, learning to let things go and trying new things are two of the things I want to focus on this year (am I the only one making new year’s resolutions on my birthday?)
So when an email popped into my mail box, inviting me to try out Thai Square Spa‘s new Himalayan Ritual Massage ON MY BIRTHDAY, I decided it was clearly a sign and that it was time for me to give this massage thing another chance!
Housed within a beautifully converted Victorian Turkish bath on Northumberland Avenue, the venue itself is breath-taking.
With the eclectic mix of Thai, Roman, and Turkish spa décor element, Thai Square Spa is a peaceful environment to nurture the spirit of modern life.
Spread over two floors, Thai Square Spa offers extensive facilities, including a dozen massage rooms, Vichy Shower treatment room as well as an ice fountain, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, as well as an in-house beauty salon… the very definition of a restorative haven!
But the prettiest of all the pretty rooms?
Thai Square Spa’s unique Himalayan Salt Room, where the Himalayan Ritual Massage is performed. Complete with authentic Himalayan Salt walls and white sand for a floor!
Found deep within the rivers and valleys of the Himalayan Mountains, these salts have been celebrated for centuries for their healing properties, and the Himalayan Rituan Massage promises to reduce stress, relieve pain and soreness.
Thanks to the use of essential oils and fruit & flower extract, it also detoxifies, hydrates and soften the skin and leave you soothed and relaxed. It can also helps with some medical conditions such as psoriasis or acne, reduces stress and promotes a better night’s sleep.
The massage itself is a 1 hour, full body massage combining various Oriental massage techniques, allowing for the ultimate personalised therapy.
A true haven for all the senses that made me a total massage convert!
There’s something so relaxing about letting go of all your every day worries and focus on just being while you get massaged and smoothed until you feel completely melted.
So if the pressure of the London life is getting the best of you, there’s only one thing to do: take half a day off, and book yourself an afternoon at Thai Square Spa.
By the time you get out, I garantee you won’t even remember what it was you were stressing over. Utter bliss indeed!
