I was recently invited by the lovely team at Spa Dunya to come in and try their very unique approach to well-being and beauty. As a Dubai resident I’d heard of their spa and their ‘colour therapy’ thing but never really got around to finding out what it was all about so when the call came I jumped at the chance.
I was welcomed by Karima Nanji who in charge of the Marketing & the Spa’s holistic consultant. She took me around the Spa (which is beautiful by the way) and showed me their own brand of products, Altearah Bio.
And of we went for the 1st step into a whole new & better version of me! The ‘Colour’ consultation. Our moods are represented by colours. 14 different ones to be exact. The therapist asked me to select 4 without over thinking it of course. You have got pick the first ones that come to mind. And as much I thought I’d pick darker, more vivid colours, I surprised myself and actually went for:
What? No red? no dark blue?!
The 1st colour you go for usually represent your current state of mind, what you most desire or long for. Gold symbolises confidence, radiance but also highlights a need for achievement, recognition and ambition. At that stage, I’m kind of impressed!
The 2nd & 3rd colours represent your deepest needs! Pink stands for tenderness (?!), comfort and pampering. Meaning, yours truly needs to open up a bit more to emotions (both outgoing & incoming), I guess at that point I must have been in need of a good old hug! Most importantly, I should take time out to nurture myself a bit more… expect to see me at the Spa at lot more often then!
Blue is for peace and calm. Something I very very rarely experience, being so hyper all the time & all! But yeah, this means, Carine SLOW DOWN and CHILL a bit!
Final colour, which represents where you’d like to be, was indeed Yellow and that’s for joy, spontaneity. It also highlights my really wanting to stop controlling everything and for things to go according to plan. It made think that I should just let go of all of the stress and worries and just enjoy the moment.
Quite a compelling analysis and a fairly accurate one at that. And believe me I am a hard nut to analyse. I even (try to) manipulate my answers to personality tests I’m that psycho!!
So, now that we’d established my 4 mood colours, Karima proceeded to pick the corresponding ‘scents’. Each colour has a different perfume which is a blend of essential oils you spray into your hands, warm and inhale 3 or 4 times. One after the other. Each of these scents hits you where it’s needed… a very strange feeling I must admit, but you are left with a sense of calm which is rather nice.
And then finally comes the treatment – The Colour Harmonizing Holistic Experience. 90 minutes of pure bliss. I mean, I have had some lovely body massage but this one?! I almost felt asleep! Which means that for an hour or so, I forgot about things, I stopped thinking and just went with the flow. I could have actually stayed there the whole day… wishful thinking! The treatment did also include a lovely facial massage.
I left feeling so relaxed & rejuvenated! Pure bliss. I’d certainly recommend this treatment to anyone who’s going through a bit of a stressful period and just wants to get away from it all for an hour or so.
