Bannatyne Spa Day

I spent my Saturday late morning at Bannatyne Spa for a Swedish Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage & heavenly scalp massage. Upon arriving, there was a £3 charge for a bag, slippers, towel and dressing gown - (which we had to give back bar the bag & slippers). The dressing gown, I wanted to keep was big, white and fluffy, simple things as I've always wanted one. Being led into their spa relaxation room to wait for the masseuse, it was so relaxing it almost felt criminal to be taking images in there, let alone talking.

Once she was ready, she showed us to a room, with two separate tables and tranquil music and gave us roughly 5 mins to de-robe and lay half nude (wah-hey) looking around I noticed they used purely Elemis Spa products, once she returned I was asked if there was any particular parts that needs working on, I didn't have any in particular but she did say that any tense parts she comes across will be worked on more. Believe me she worked on my shoulders, I could then feel how tense I was, very, very tense. For the first time in so long, I completed zoned out, I was so relaxed, I couldn't even feel my legs.

Being there is no clock or sense of time 25 minutes might of been longer or shorter - I couldn't tell. It just felt absolutely divine. When I met my masseuse back at reception and pointed out to her that I could feel the tension in my shoulders as she worked on me, she agreed that I was definitely very tense and need more massages & with my kettle bell workouts, it's ideal. I was recommended the Elemis Aching Muscle Soak which I think I'm going to have to purchase and soak until I'm pruned.

All in all, it was such a good experience to have my first professional massage, it's now something I recommend for any male & female to get if they can because you truly do unwind and I slept like a baby last night, my shoulders are a little sore but as tense as I am, I'm sure it's to be expected. With my birthday weekend coming up (yes I said weekend) it was a nice treat and also a nice way to clear my mind from all the stress of the previous week.

2 for 1 Spa Day £79 on the weekend - £69 during the weekday.

  2. This sounds deliciously divine!

    Good thing they didn't have a clock in the room, I went for a thai massage and had the clock right in my face, what a way to relax, like WTF.

    Did you get to keep the robes?

  3. Sounds amazing! I'm too self conscious to get a massage - anyone who ends up massaging my neck/back will probably end up accidently losing a ring or bracelet within the folds. :'( :'( - you've been due a good pampering! Great way to start your b.day week :D
