Quirky spa treatments

By 26th May 2017 No Comments

Sun Salutation at Ockenden Manor in Sussex

It’s been a long winter. With warmer weather on its way, would you like to be reminded what summer smells and feels like? After your body has been exfoliated with a mix of papaya, macadamia, sugar and sea salt, you’ll experience an after-sun style cucumber and aloe wrap, and a scalp acupressure massage. The heady scents of frangipani and jasmine hold the promise of sunsets and balmy evenings. 90 minutes; £130.ockenden-min

The Frown Treatment at Bodysgallen Hall & Spa in Wales

Who doesn’t want to turn back the clock and live a life involving a lot less brow-furrowing? This very effective treatment not only softens existing lines but, by reducing muscle tension in the forehead, prevents new ones forming. Penta-peptide serum is worked deep into the skin, leaving your forehead super-smooth and squint-scar free. 45 minutes; £90.bodysgallen-min

Copper Ultra Revive at PfefferSal in Fitzrovia, London

OK, so micro-needling metal into your face may sound mad, but don’t be too quick to judge. Hailed as the new Vitamin A, copper is metabolised by the body (unlike other metals) and stimulates the skin into hyper-repair, stimulating collagen production. Described as the ‘Ferrari of facials’, it’s a genuine anti-ageing treatment. 90 minutes; £245.pfeffer-sal-min

The Red Carpet Facial at Dormy House in Worcestershire

Very important occasion, very little time? If you need the photo-finish look, like, now, you’ll be thanking all the Oscar-nominated stars for this one. It’s dynamic, and it’ll damned well get you the face you’re after – and within an hour. Glycolic resurfacing may sound more like engineering than a beauty treatment but, by goodness, it works. 60 minutes; £85.dormy-min

Garden of England Rose Restore at Calcot Manor Hotel & Spa in the Cotswolds

Since the Victorian glasshouses were erected on the impeccably-kept lawns back in the 19th century, al fresco eaters have been drawn to this green space in the city’s West End. Kibble Palace – the most magnificent of the transparent structures – houses the national collection of tree ferns and is absolutely worthy of a wander, pre- or post-picnic. 55 minutes; £80.calcot-min

Coconut Head Massage at Seaham Hall in County Durham

You don’t need to look far to find out the benefits of coconut oil. Naturally antibacterial and antifungal, it’s an outstanding moisturiser for skin and it smells like cookies. This powerful massage targets the tension areas – neck, shoulders and head – honing in on pressure points corresponding to the chakras. Plus, a deeply conditioning hair wrap undoes the horror of what daily washing can do. 45 minutes; £75.Seaham-Hall-Hotel06

The Power Breakfast Facial at Lake Country House in Mid Wales

You don’t need to look far to find out the benefits of coconut oil. Naturally antibacterial and antifungal, it’s an outstanding moisturiser for skin and it smells like cookies. This powerful massage targets the tension areas – neck, shoulders and head – honing in on pressure points corresponding to the chakras. Plus, a deeply conditioning hair wrap undoes the horror of what daily washing can do. 30 minutes; £42.Lake-Country-House-pool

Slender Cow Legs at Cowshed in Holland Park, London

Cycle all you like, run as many 10Ks as you can, it’s practically impossible to escape cellulite. Cowshed’s delicately-named ‘Slender Cow’ products have been created with those stubborn, not-as-firm-as-we’d-like bits of the body in mind. Focusing on the buttocks and upper thighs, this treatment begins with dry body brushing and exfoliation, followed by a deep lymphatic massage. 30 minutes; £42.Cowshed-3
