If you’re in serious need (and I mean serious!) of de-connecting from your everyday stresses and escape to the land of dreams, then THIS is the treatment you need to try!
I had the immense pleasure of experiencing the 2-hour long Shiffa Arabian Gold Ritual at the beautiful Spa at the Address Dubai Mall over the weekend and I cannot express how amazing the whole thing was! I came in after a few weeks of craziness at work and let me tell you, I was not at all relaxed. By the end of it, I felt completely rid of all of my worries! Really. I kid you not! And for those of you who know me a little, I very very rarely relax!
My therapist (her name is Cindy – she’s amazing!!) took me to this lovely and peaceful treatment room and proceeded with the treatment.
First off, a full body scrub. On dry skin. Cos it works better at getting rid of dry skin AND detoxing/improving blood flow. She used a mix of lavender and refreshing spearmint… smelt delicious!
I then washed it all of in the shower cabin… which, by the way, was the size of my living room! A real treat!
We moved on to a full body mask! A mix of detoxing clay was applied all-over and I was then wrapped into plastic (weird but in a cool way!), and lots of fluffy towels to keep me warm.
Once the mask was over, I went back in the shower to rinse it all off… (never felt so clean!)
She followed with the most relaxing full body massage ever. Yep, even got rid of those nasty knots on my shoulders & neck! Total bliss.
I was then treated to a mini-facial which instantly gave me the glow I had lost many moons (and long working days) ago!
Whilst waiting for the face mask to work its magic into my skin, she gave me a well needed scalp and hair massage using the Shiffa Dubai Invigorating Hair Oil which includes grape seed, jojoba oil, wild mint blend, rosemary and calendula to moisturise, stimulate, revive and invigorate the scalp as well as nourish the hair. What a luxurious treat!
Once we were done with the treatment, Cindy took me to the relaxation room where I sipped on green tea and laid on a super comfy rest chair until I was ready to get dressed and step back out into the real world!
These were the most amazing 2hrs of my week…hell of my month!!!
I really do recommend this treatment and I will certainly do it again in a few week’s time! More details on the Hotel, the Spa and their various treatments etc… can be found here.
Let me know if you try it out!! xo
