The Best Spa Treatments To Book Today
4 minutes read
It’s vacation time and when it comes to R&R, a trip somewhere tranquil, exotic and away from the maddening crowd comes to mind. Sadly, the ongoing airport madness, grounded flights and travel strikes are not quite as alluring. So, instead of suffering at the helm of passport control – how does a drive to the countryside sound?
Nothing beats a body treatment, whether you are looking to detoxify your body or de-stress your mind. From antioxidant-rich wine baths to steaming hot stone massages, Beauty Daily lists the top body treatments you can book UK-wide in mind-blowing locations that require no air flights.
What is a body treatment?
Body treatment is like a facial treatment but for the whole body.
It is an arching term for spa services and treatments dedicated to helping you achieve something specific for your body. It usually involves cleansing, exfoliating, detoxifying, and hydrating the body.
Body treatment benefits include the release of muscle tensions, healthy and glowing skin, skin firming, reducing the appearance of cellulite, banishing body blemishes, flushing out bodily toxins, improving blood circulation and relaxing the mind and body among others.
What are the most popular body treatments?
Here are three of the best body treatments we think you should check out.
1. To Detoxify The Body, Check The Wine Bath Experience at AIRE Ancient Baths London
If you like to experience how the ancient royals bathed, submerging in a red sea might interest you. AIRE Ancient Baths in London, with branches in Chicago, New York, and Barcelona, to name a few, are inspired by the Romans, Greeks, and Ottoman spas, which means you can literally bathe in a sea of grapes.
Your spa experience includes a soak in a private non-alcoholic wine bath infused with antioxidants. The Spanish Tempranillo grapes will give you bright, smooth skin as you relax for 30 minutes.
According to the Dermatology Times, resveratrol in red wine boosts anti-inflammatory properties, meaning it brings down redness and bloating. Wine baths are also said to relieve painful joints and muscles.
And it doesn’t end there; the lavish wine bath will be followed by a 60-minute relaxing full-body massage using grapeseed oil and 15-min honey and propolis massage for intense head and facial hydration and relaxation.
A complimentary glass of Spanish red wine paired with fresh grapes and aged cheese perfectly complements the ritual- truly a body treatment fit for royalty.
2. To Relieve Body Fatigue and Muscle Tension, Check Clarins Hot Stone Massage At Ragdale Hall, Leicestershire Countryside
If you are looking for a Bridgerton-esque escape, look no further. Ragdale Hall, an award-winning spa set within the stunning Leicestershire countryside, offers spa seekers a luxury break and well-deserved pamper days. You can choose from a range of spa and body treatments.
We have our eyes exclusively for the personalised hot stone massage. This Clarins hot stone massage promises total body relaxation. Warm stones help to relieve tension, fight fatigue, and deliver an all-around well-being boost. The certified massage therapist uses techniques and blissful aroma therapeutic oils, keeping your mind and body a total break.
3. To Calm The Mind, Book Sarvanga Full Body Massage At The Scarlet, Cornwall
There’s no better place to calm the mind than travelling out of the city and staying at one of the most peaceful places in the UK. Scarlet Hotel, a luxury hotel in Cornwall with sea view bedrooms, exceptional food, and a unique spa experience, is an example.
If life has been overwhelming these past few months, and you want to spend some time soul searching or reconnecting with nature, we recommend checking out the Sarvanga full-body treatment. Bring scattered mental energy back into calming focus. Translating from Sanskrit as ‘every limb,’ Sarvanga is an Ayurvedic full-body oil massage with each stroke in the same downward direction. Next, the whole body is worked upon, finishing with a Mukhabhyanga facial massage, bringing a complete sense of calm. This is an Ayurvedic recommendation for those struggling to sleep.
