As the cold gets into your bones and the dark early evenings leave you with a need for comfort, it’s all about warming spa treatments and uplifting scents to help relieve stress and appease winter blues.
Top of the agenda are hot stone massages and body wraps, but there are also a number of tailored treatments especially to boost the spirits at this time of year…
A facility more than a treatment, amidst the rustic charm of The Mill Wheel Spa at the Three Horseshoes Country Inn and Spa, The Beach Hut is a unique experience which replicates the positive benefits of being on a beach in the sun. A unique experience, you lie on a bed of warm sand, and the 25 minute experience takes guests from darkness to sunrise to peak sunshine and then sunset. Relaxing music and essential oils complete the ‘holiday’ experience. It is ideal for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) to top up Vitamin D levels helping beat winter blues and this can even stimulate the metabolism.
Regularly voted one of the UK’s best spas, K Spa has numerous unusual treatments and facilities. The luxurious Sun Meadow treatment room is one such example, featuring specially designed UV lights for light therapy treatment. Whilst the sound of birdsong and a running stream fills the room, spa goers relax under gentle lights that feel like spring sunshine, encouraging the production of Vitamin D and serotonin.
A deeply warming treatment, as the name suggests, come in from the cold this winter with a blend of luxurious lavender, zesty orange and uplifting ginger spice at Whittlebury Hall. This salt and oil exfoliation treatment leaves your skin beautifully smooth and polished whilst indulging in a hot stone neck, shoulder and scalp massage. Lavender is great for relaxation which during the stressful Christmas period lavender is great, while orange is a great detox for the skin and it’s uplifting.
