The Scarlet Spa offers a series of therapeutic Journeys, each one designed to help you find ways of improving your life balance. Journeys can be experienced alone, with a partner or a friend, and take three to four hours – long enough to give you time to unwind properly and for us to make a lasting difference to your wellbeing.
Each Journey involves:
- An individual consultation during which you and your therapist explore your Ayurvedic dosha type and agree the most suitable combination of treatments and massage techniques for you.
- A bathing ritual to prepare your body: opening your pores, cleansing your skin and relaxing your muscles. Our bathing rituals include either a body tingling scrub in our hammam or a ‘get messy’ rhassoul experience using mud to detoxify the skin.
- Relaxation time for you to just ‘be’, to lie and ponder the beauty of your surroundings, to quieten your mind and let go of your stress.
- A chance to enjoy a guided meditation, to free your mind and prepare your body for your treatment.
- A therapeutic massage or blend of yoga, breath work and massage. Carried out in our quiet tented treatment rooms and tailored to suit your dosha type and address any imbalances identified during your consultation.
- Deep relaxation recovery time cocooned in a hammock-like pod. Personal time and space at the end of your journey is important to give your body and mind a chance to absorb the benefits fully.
£220, allow 3 – 4 hrs.
