I’m such a big fan of the high quality and level of organic ingredients in Dr Hauschka products and I love using them. I’m pretty much daily dependant on the Night Serum, Tinted Day Cream, Foundation (01) and Arm & Legs Tonic. Oh, and the insanely effective Spruce Warming Bath Oil for shifting colds…
Therefore I was thrilled to discover that the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape at Metropolitan London, just of Park Lane is Dr Hauschka’s flagship spa. I popped along a couple of weeks ago to try out the Bespoke Dr. Hauschka Holistic Massage (or Moonlit Massage, the idea to get you nice and sleepy and through disrupted sleep when it’s the full moon!) which is a little different in that it focusses on connecting to your emotions at the time and matching them up with the right oil to help your mood.
As I was feeling a little fragile emotionally, I went for the super gentle and soothing rose. Any other time though I think I would have gone for the Birch Arnica Energising Oil – which is great on the muscles and which I’m now using every bathtime. Or if you’re low on energy, a good one would be the Lemongrass Oil – to tone, fortify and revitalise your mood.
As well as the aromatherapy, the massage uses lymph flow massage techniques working with the natural rhythms of your body. The COMO spa is a relaxed haven with the most delicious ginger tea and nuts when you arrive and a nice changing space with robe and slippers waiting for you in the locker. I always love how you can step away from the hustle and bustle of London life into somewhere like this and emerge feeling reset, super relaxed, nourished on a spiritual level and ready to face the world renewed.
My therapist had amazing flow and I felt, as well as having specific problem areas targeted, there was a real emphasis on an overall caring approach to the treatment – a really gorgeous experience, wish I could be there right now as I write this! Although sadly I didn’t have time, I was encouraged, with another cup of the honey and ginger tea to chill out in the rest of the spa…
