Last weekend we were lucky enough to be invited* down to the Lush Spa in Birmingham to experience their couple Synaesthesia treatment. This treatment is 80 minutes long and is a full body treatment. Metamorphose with a bespoke full-body multi-sensory treatment. Your therapist will perform a ballet entirely choreographed to transform your state of mind.
We were a little nervous upon heading to the spa as we hadn’t had massages to this level before, however this soon went away upon enterance to the spa. The spa situatied within the Lush store on Birmingham high street, is visually beautiful. You enter through seperate doors and leave the hustle and bustle of the shop to be greated by a kitchen-style room. Here you meet your therapists and fill in a quick form to outline if you have any medical needs. You then get to pick how you want to leave feeling from a list of words and pick an oil to match. These word you choose reflects the massage bar and oils that will used throughout your treatment. A very unique twist on a standard massage and the scent filled the room during the massage.
You’ll be left feeling…
When you enter the room, it is lit with a shades of purple and music fills the room. You will be asked to remove down to your lower underwear and lie under a blanket on a heated bed. The therapist works from your back to your lower legs, to your feet and your front legs and then to your stomach where you can opt for a hot stone massage. They then work on your neck and shoulders, before your face and your scalp. The therapist uses a combination of hot and cold stones alongside your chosen massage bar so it really is a dreamy experience that plays on all the senses. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so relaxed in my whole life!!! (80 minutes of pure heaven!)
After the treatment, I noticed just how hydrated and great my skin felt for days after due to the hydration of the massage bars, it was the perfect winter pick me up. After your treatment is over (which does feel like the 80 minutes were about 10) you are left to get dressed and try remember how to stand! not easy when as oily as a seal!
After you are greated with a cup of tea (which is designed to taste like the oils you have just had used during your treatment) which covers the last of our five senses. You then get to sit there and enjoy the spa for as long as you wish, use the Lush products in the bathroom, enjoy a piece of fruit or just read a magazine. As you leave, you get to take with you a massage bar and a bath bar which are using the same oils and scents as you had during your treatment.
It was so lovely to do a joint treatment in one room, as you got to share the experience and talk about it after. A great experience for couples with Valentine’s day just around the corner.
You can book for your treatment here for £140.
