A busy work schedule and a week’s worth of lugging heavy samples around on photo shoots meant my aching body was in desperate need of a timeout and some TLC. After work I jumped straight on the metro (by far the quickest and easiest way to get there – The Sofitel, Downtown is located right next to The Burj Khalifa metro stop) and hotfooted it into So Spa to relax, unwind and recharge the batteries with their So Invigorating Body Massage.
What: So Exhilarating Body Massage, 60 minutes
The lowdown: The 60-minute body massage uses various pressures and techniques to perform a therapeutic whole body massage. This treatment is designed to rejuvenate and revitalise, along with detoxifying the body by rapidly eliminating toxins and waste materials in the blood stream and skin cells.
For the ultimate romantic experience, start your treatment by unwinding and relaxing in the couples hydro-bath infused with an aromatic lavender fragrance before your massage in the couple’s treatment room. Opt for the special Delicious Balm by Themae, for a truly relaxing massage.
The result: If like me, you love a deep massage with a hard pressure then this is the one to go for, it was also the best massage I’ve had to date in Dubai. I didn’t want it to end.
Once the treatment had finished I sat and relaxed with a fruity herbal tea. After a long week of carrying heavy samples on photo shoots it was just what my tired muscles needed, my stresses had melted away and my body felt rejuvenated.
