Azur Spa Full Body Massage by Azur Spa on Wheelz
It is true that ‘relaxing & rejuvenating’ is the new R & R, thanks to Azur Spa. But with Azur Spa On Wheelz, R & R becomes a ‘roving respite’! I personally was quite uncomfortable with the thought of having them come over and actually have the treatment AT THE OFFICE. Once the duo from Azur Spa came, they wasted no time in affixing the massage station as well as the mani-pedi corner. Before we knew it, my male colleague took the first turn for the massage – with a divider for total privacy, of course! After an hour, he was all praise of the therapy and then it was my turn to ‘feel’ it for myself. And they did not disappoint. It began with stretching to the muscles then proceeded by their heavenly treatment. Their signature therapy was a combined Swedish and Thai massage incorporating 5 key techniques like lomilomi and tapotement. An hour was enough to relieve my tired muscles and balance my energies. Relaxed yet energised, is what I felt! And oh, yes I totally forgot about being at the office the whole time!
Don’t have time to come down to the salon because of work or home stuff? This spa gives you no reason to skip pampering yourself with their Azur Spa on Wheelz concept. After setting up for the session at the Mother, Baby & Child Magazine office, the therapist – who was very cordial, by the way – began the mani-pedi service. She has done a phenomenal job in what seemed to be a routinary procedure. Plus, the foot scrub made the treatment all the more enjoyable!

Honey Bee Glow Treatment by Zen Asia Spa
Mother, Baby & Child Magazine went to Zen Asia Spa’s Jumeirah Lakes Tower branch to try one of their bestsellers. It is not all the time that a conventional setting meshes well with traditional aspects to complete the interior of a spa. But Zen Asia nailed it, no doubt. It has a very refreshing feel to it. Once the Brown Sugar Body Scrub commenced, it rendered a very relaxing feel. The warm damping, the rose mask application and cucumber scrub combined with the scents and ambience had put the session to a good start. After getting off the wrap,the skin instantaneously felt smooth and silky. But that wasn’t the end of it because it was followed by a massage and the Herbal Thai Facial. The soothing strokes totally harmonized the whole experience. All praises go to the therapist as well who had been very keen in asking our preferences with reasonable frequency.

Melt Away by Tilia & Finn
In the heart of the Mirdif City Centre nestles a retreat to alleviate your tired soles from shopping, your stressed-out body from a long week which you are capping with a stroll in the mall or your worked-up muscles from the gym. Melt Away is actually a great way to purge those worn muscles caused by chronic stress, pain or tension. The mostly-white backdrop with hints of dimly-lit treatment rooms offer an aesthetic contrast, whilst the scent coming off the candles and the essential oils gives a calming feel. Knots in the back were targeted by repeated kneading strokes. You’d be surprised how the deep manipulation combined with Ho lead, nutmeg and rosemary could work its magic on your body.
