To me, the main test of a good massage is if I feel totally exhausted afterwards – this means I’ve completely wound down and just want to sleep! So this was truly a good massage, I was definitely ready to sleep after this one! I didn’t feel rushed or on a schedule at any point during the treatment – even after it started late due to a bit of a mix up over the bookings, the treatment was still for the full hour and half allowed for it – which I appreciated. As I’ve been in places before where they cut the time or make you feel rushed.
Pre-holiday I was very lucky to be invited to The Peak Health Club to review the Ytsara Massage. The Peak Healthy club is in the middle of Knightsbridge -just a stones throw away from Harrods and fairly close to Knightsbridge tube station.
From the picture below, you can see the large windows at the top of the hotel – this is the setting for the gym and entrance to the spa. I was shown around this area and have to say, the views are spectacular.
I was then led to the quiet and peaceful treatment room where I was given some herbal tea and allowed to get ready. Even as someone who doesn’t drink tea – this was a nice and relaxing way to start the treatment.
The Ytsara Massage includes a range of treatments – I went for the full body treatment ‘Nuat Namman Body Oil Treatment’. This uses a combination of a herbal pumice (a warm ball of herbs that’s used to massage the skin) and oils to massage and soften the skin. With the general result of me being totally blissed out and left with beautifully soft skin.
The massage was adapted to my requirements (heavy on the neck and shoulder areas where I hold all my tension, more gentle elsewhere) which I like -it’s good to know the treatment can be adapted to suit your needs, so you don’t leave still feeling tense or like the massage is only half done.
Overall, The Peak Health Club is a little oasis in London – just entering the hotel you feel like you have left London for another far more exotic country. The setting is peaceful and the staff are attentive and very knowledgeable – happy to talk you through the treatment in more detail if you like.
