For the Totally Jewish Magazine

When we arrived back at the hotel we decided that we deserved massages; a quick phone call down to reception later and two highly trained professionals were sent to our suite. It was refreshing not to have to leave the room, rushing to be at a spa on time - and as with so many hotels - walk through the place with our bathrobes. They set up a bed and we relaxed in our garden suite. I went for a sports massage which I had needed for a long time to soothe some knots and tight muscles, followed by a thoroughly relaxing Indian head massage. My partner had an Aromaflex massage - a highly relaxing aromatherapy massage followed by reflexology. The masseuses were excellent, and from a therapeutic point of view identified a few longstanding problems that I have had, taking the time afterwards to give me tips on preventing muscle pain.

For The SPA SPY from the Daily Telegraph

The symptoms Spy was suffering from a deep, nagging pain below her right shoulder blade, as well as patchy, dry skin on her face.

The prescription A 45-minute aromatherapy back massage and a 45-minute deluxe facial, using products by Germaine De Capuccini – which claims to be the first professional skincare range to be certified as carbon neutral. A deluxe facial, which includes an aromatherapy back massage, costs £65 and lasts an hour and a half.

The procedure Before her treatment, Spy had been encouraged to unwind in the 40C hot tub on the private deck of her Garden Suite, so she felt suitably relaxed when the therapists arrived. Because Spy is prone to psoriasis on some parts of her body, it was decided that the oils used in her deep back massage should include bergamot, said to be good for such skin complaints. The facial consisted of a thorough cleanse – using hot flannels, which felt sublime – an exfoliation, a deep purifying mask, toner and layers of moisturiser, all suited to Spy's specific skin type: extra dry.
