It’s that time of the year when the mercury rises and, if we’re not careful, our stress levels go through the roof with it. Which is why it’s important to take some chill out time out for ourselves.
Located in Jumeira Plaza, Best Relaxation offers the place to do just that. With separate areas for men and for women this Thai massage and wellness centre provides the perfect balance for body and soul. The spa menu mainly features massage treatments but also offers reflexology, detoxification, cupping, and grooming services for men.
To complement my summer health kick, I decided to check out the Aromatherapy and Detoxification package. The treatment started with a session in the Detox Box. This individual box resembles a small sauna, but the difference is it uses infrared technology that detoxifies the body, improves skin tone, helps with weight management and energises while relaxing the mind. After 30 minutes in the box it was time for my massage.
Massage is probably the oldest and simplest form of relaxation and stress relief. The Aromatherapy Oil Massage uses essential oil extracts from plants and flowers to relax and loosen tight muscles. The therapist started with the knots in my back, neck and shoulders before moving across my entire body to the point where I could literally feel the stress dropping away. Having arrived somewhat frazzled, I left after my 90-minute session feeling calm, centred and ready to face all that Dubai had to throw at me.
The Aromatherapy and Detoxification package is priced at Dhs 250.
