You know those lousy days when everything goes wrong right from morning itself. Well it was one of those days for me and so I was really looking forward to my therapy at Heavenly Spa, The Westin Pune in the evening. Karishma Tecksingani, Spa Manager welcomed me warmly and helped me choose my therapy as I sipped the apple and cinnamon elixir which is a source of antioxidants and vitamin C. From the menu, the 30 minutes Silky Scrub, the 90 minutes Heavenly Massage followed by 30 minutes of soak in the tub seemed like exactly what I needed to forget my blues.
Before starting the therapy, a stone is kept outside the therapy room to indicate that it is occupied and I would like to believe that the stone signifies the worries of the guest and that they should leave these worries outside as well. It was something I so required to do. The chime of the singing bowl energized me and the Silky Scrub is a Pevonia product which is perfect to cleanse, exfoliate and polish away dead skin cells and impurities. It also improves circulation with its sulfate-free, non-irritating properties. It contains ingredients like jojoba, safflower and rosemary. I liked that its granules were not harsh and the scrub itself was absorbed better than many other scrubs.
A quick shower later, I was ready for my Heavenly Massage which is the spa’s signature therapy. It indeed puts you on cloud nine. My therapist, Jyosi expertly applied a warming heat pack to my back to relax the muscles. A powerful aromatherapy remedy released the remaining tension, improved my circulation and boosted my energy levels. As a combination of strokes like pettrissage, kneading and gliding were done and white tea oil massaged in, I smiled, my day’s frustration swept away. One big plus point that Heavenly Spa has are its heated spa beds and I absolutely love the warm sensation on my back during the massage as soothing Thai classical music played.
The chime was an indication that my therapy was complete and now it was time for the soak in the tub where warm water and rose petals relaxed and helped to alleviate my body and mind. The shower followed by a yummy piece of dark chocolate full of antioxidants and a cup of herbal tea in addition to the amazing therapy made me agree why the spa is named Heavenly and why guests should visit it.
