Stress No More: These 4 Unique Spas Will Give You The Royal Treatment You Need

Shivangni posted on 09 March

Been working too hard and no number of getaways from the city seem to be fixing how tired you feel? Well, we’ve got just the thing. Not only will these awesome spas help you relax, their uniqueness will make for an experience of a lifetime.

Blueberry Cheesecake Spa At The Nature Spa

Yes, you read that right! The blueberry cheesecake spa is a thing. It begins with a 15-minute steam to open up the pores. They use three products that had been curated especially for the therapy – a scrub that looks like cheese cream, a blueberry essence gel, and some hot oil. First, they start with the scrub that exfoliates the skin. The best part, according to us, was when they applied hot oil for the final deep-tissue massage. If you have a bad backache or tension in your shoulders, trust us, this is exactly what you need. The last step is the moisturisation of the skin with blueberry-flavoured gel. The entire treatment is priced at INR 3,199 {exclusive of taxes} and went on for 75 minutes. Also, this ended with a warm herbal tea, which we absolutely loved.

Vegan Spa At Orrganic Elemennt

You don’t just need to go Vegan with your food now, Orrganic Elemennt is known for its organic body polish and wraps, starting at INR 2,000. The treatment uses cold-pressed oils derived from almonds, olives and sesame, blended with sea salt or cane sugar, herbs and spices. If you have dry skin, we highly recommend you try the restoring body treatment with wildflowers of the mountain. Combining the rich nutrients from basil, ketaki flower, lotus seed, tuberose and lavender, this body wrap refreshes and tones your skin like never before.

Zero Gravity Spa At Shalom Float & Mind Spa

We know you’re already wondering how this works. You will spend about 60 minutes at a RelaxoPod, a nine-feet deep flotation tank in the shape of an oyster. The tank holds about 2/3 water and 1/3 Epsom salt. The salt adds density to the water, which keeps your body afloat, sans any effort, against gravity. It’s almost like floating on the Dead Sea which, as most people would know, is a hypersaline lake in Israel. The RelaxoPod is completely soundproof and light-trapped. So, basically, you’re floating inside an absolute quiet dark space. This has an immediate effect on your body that will start releasing stress-related hormones and there is a natural spike in the neurochemical levels. The Epsom salt, on the other hand, doesn’t only make your body buoyant, but also softens your skin and hair and detoxifies your entire body.

For your float session, they will provide you with everything from towels to shampoo, soap, ear plugs and hairdryer, free of charge. Their sessions start at INR 1,500. Go here for more information on the place.
