Escape from the cold and retreat indoors to warm body and soul with a little pampering? Maybe Corpaci, our junior beauty editor, recently visited the Spa at The Twelve Apostles Hotel for a 90 -minute treatment.
Since it is a treatment for two, she took along her partner for a 30-minute Rasul ritual followed by a 60-minute full-body massage.
‘After changing into a bathrobe and enjoying water and fruit in the tranquil relaxation area, we were shown to the traditional Rasul chamber where there were four bowls containing body scrub, body mud, hair mask and clay face mask. We started in the sauna where the mud, which we applied ourselves, hardened in the dry heat to draw out impurities. Then they changed the setting to steam to soften the mud again before gentle rain-like shower washed it and the face and hari masks off. Already my skin and hair were feeling very soft.
‘My muscles felt warm and relaxed, which helped to get the full benefit from the treatment. We chose the hour-long B| Harmonised treatment. After a detoxifying foot soak, followed by a stress-releasing, relaxing body massage that concentrated on the main tense areas. (The therapist will ask whether there are any specific areas you’d like her to focus on.) We left the spa completely relaxed and pampered, with skin that remained soft for days afterwards and the mind clear and balanced.’
