Soma Spa: Relaxation Haven
Nestled on the seventh floor of the Pullman Dubai City Centre lies Soma Spa, a haven of relaxation which beckoned me this sunny Friday afternoon in Dubai. Only recently arrived back home from a hectic Formula One weekend in Monte Carlo and straight into a busy workweek, an hour long full body massage was exactly what my tired body and mind needed to unwind!
Arriving at the spa, I was greeted by friendly receptionists and offered some fresh cloudy apple juice (my favourite), before being whisked away to the therapy room. My lovely therapist, Chom, who hails from India, was not only a fabulous masseuse but explained the warm green tea oil used in my treatment was excellent for its detoxifying properties. Using fluid, yet firm strokes, she managed to ease away my knots and tension and soothe my aching muscles (Numbers are Sexy does have a desk job, after all!).
The highlight of my treatment was the Indian head massage at the end; as a self-confessed massage junkie, who has experienced treatments from places afar such as the Cayman Islands, Las Vegas and Hong Kong, the head massage is the most neglected part of the therapy. At the hands of Chom, I experienced most likely the best and most thorough massage which was admittedly so good, I almost fell asleep – a sign of a very experienced therapist and successful treatment!
Thankfully I managed to avoid slumberland and end my session with a sauna and steam room visit and some refreshing honey and ginger tea. Looking forward to sleeping very well tonight and my next visit!
