Taking TIME OUT of a busy schedule to RELAX and focus on deep breathing is ESSENTIAL for PRODUCTIVITY …
WHAT: ESPA Mindful Massage
WHERE: Powerscourt Spa, Powerscourt Hotel, Enniskerry, Co Wicklow.
WHY: If you are in any way stressed or rundown, this is tailor-made for you, with a focus on deep relaxing, breathing and expelling all signs of tension from the body and mind.
THE LOWDOWN: Having warmed oil smoothed onto your limbs while you focus on deep inhalations of fragrant oils is a fairly wonderful way to spend an hour or so. Having hurtled down the M11 with no time to spare, I presented a knotty challenge to serene therapist Lauren. The spacious treatment room and relaxation suite overlooking the greenery of Powerscourt Estate means it’s impossible to avoid a sense of wellbeing, even before a drop of fragrant oil hits your skin. Your mind feels exfoliated while any dry wintrified skin is banished.
HOW MUCH: €155, 80 minutes. It’s hard to think of a more welcome gift than a voucher for this treatment; get there in time to enjoy the pool and thermal suites before your treatment.
TAKE HOME: The lush Pink Hair & Scalp Mud used for the head massage is deeply conditioning – leave in hair overnight if possible.
