Just before my D-Day, I finally got one Sunday afternoon just for myself. And thus, I decided to set the self-pampering mode on. I visited the Three Graces Spa at Vasant Kunj, New Delhi for a pre-bridal session; to be precise I opted for a gold SPA package, wherein I experienced a body massage and wrap with sparkling gold-dust based body cream.
Whenever, I visit a SPA, the first thing I notice is the hygiene bit; this SPA surprised me pleasantly, when I noticed, even the hair combs were sterilized. Every room had a shower space with inbuilt sauna. Body lotion, shower gel, conditioner were kept nicely in order. Towels and bathrobe were pristine white and freshly laundry-picked. Also, the entire aura of the therapy room had something very soothing about it.
My masseur, Shiny Malhotra, escorted me to my therapy room; she started with a foot ritual wherein I dipped my feet in lukewarm water placed in a vintage-looking copper vessel. I was asked to close my eyes and relax, as she chanted a Sanskrit mantra as part of their rejuvenation journey. Two minutes of humming and I could already feel the stress drifting apart from my body. Before the procedure started, I was asked to take shower followed by 10 minutes of sauna—this will open up the pores of my body so that the cream penetrates in the deepest layers of my skin.
The message and wrap comprised of almost 75 minutes. My masseur had magical hands; I felt like she was responding to my body and trust me, I hadn’t uttered a word. She somehow, knew that I had stiff shoulders and a lower back problem and she took care of all that in silence. I was relaxed and content from the bottom of my heart. Post my session, I realized, I must have dozed off in-between—Shiny was that good! The best part about this therapy was that she explained to me step-by-step, how beneficial this will be for me, especially for my wedding day. It’s been 10 days since then and I still have a golden-hued glow all over me. I would recommend this SPA to every bride-to-be. I can vouch for the fact that in the end, you will be all smiles!
