Go, Get Cracking!

Some call it indulgence, some call it a necessity, but, for me, its sheer rejuvenation! Visiting a spa is the most blissful and relaxing thing to do, especially after a hectic day, week, month or, even, a year. Driven by this absolute necessity to feel relaxed and calm before the festive season kicks in, I was invited to Spa la Vie by L’OCCITANE, Mumbai.

On the onset, Spa la Vie by L’OCCITANE is an 8,000 sq. ft. Mediterranean wellness sanctuary nestled in a in Lower Parel (East). This is one of Mumbai’s largest day spas and also features one of Mumbai’s only hammams. The treatments on offer include massages, facials, scrubs, wraps, ayurveda, hammam rituals, couple’s treatments and manicures/pedicures.

As aforementioned, I was quite intrigued by the hammam concept and opted for a shea moisturizing scrub in the hamman treatment room. Something sort of like a water therapy, the treatment begins with a 10-minute steam. Once out, the masseuse gently scrubs the body. As we know, exfoliation is the key to all bright and healthy skin; least overdoing it could lead to dry skin. The skilled hands gently make their way, this was followed by water jets pointed at the body’s chakras, thus, effectively, releasing stress and relaxing strained muscles. In the end, a gentle cleansing completes this treatment.

Leaving behind all my stress, I’m now ready to take part in the festive swirl.
