Winter Spa treatments
“We use it ﬁrst because it’s also
warming, relaxing and softens the muscles
before the massage.”
That it does. Led to the massage
room, the ambiance of the candles alone
is enough to make my body sigh into
indulgence mode. With 30-minute back,
neck and shoulders massages ranging
from deep tissue to relaxation, I choose
something in-between. Like so many
women, I spend a lot of my work hours at a
desk, inviting a world of tension, pinching
and pain to my shoulder area.
Jasmine immediately identified the
trouble spots. “It’s very common for people
who work desk jobs to develop tension
here,” she explained as her expert ﬁngers
zone in on a knot just below my shoulder
blade. I can hear the terrible crunching of
built up toxins and trigger points, and the
tension starts to melt away. I start to doze
until its time for my facial.
The anti-aging facial consists of many
processes aimed at nourishing, hydrating,
plumping and ﬁrming – just the thing
for battling the winter elements. Jasmine
applied, pats-in and removes a range of
products, following the contours of my
face. When she ﬁnished, I felt as though
my skin was alive and absorbing the winter
air for the ﬁrst time in a long time.
The Winter Blues package ﬁnishes
off with your choice of a delicious hot
chocolate or, if you’ve had enough
decadence for one day, Soma’s special
honey and ginger ‘elixir’.
What’s the verdict? Cleopatra; eat your
