the Therapist that Matters!
Day and salon
spas, are now springing like mushrooms. They are now broadening
their menus of services and treatments, re-focusing on offering
quality massages, facials, and other maintenance/therapeutic
mainstays. Spa consumers don’t necessarily want a
huge, diversified menu from their day spa – what they
want is a place they can visit on a regular basis to achieve
consistent results from a therapist that they know and trust.
Perhaps spas need to put more effort into getting their
customers to come back month after month.
Senses is “balancing senses” at rue de Castiglione
Among the frenzied hustle and bustle of Paris is a peaceful
spa haven where you can go to have a “slow life”
and actually come out not feeling guilty.
Six Senses has created its eight urban sanctuary
in a quiet location next door to the Westin Paris and close
to Place Vendome and Jardins des Tuileries.
The unique cocoon looking spa has been designed
by French architect Pierre David to introduce Parisians
and guests at the Westin Paris to the Six Senses balances
of the elements of sky, earth and natural wood. Their mission
is to deliver a spa experience that is both unique and memorable
while emphasising on the Six Senses brand values –
natural, holistic, harmonious, revitalising and personal.
In the two double and four single “Cocoons”
the spa offers Six Senses signature half-day sensory journeys
and rejuvenating Asian-based treatments along with locally
inspired SLOWLIFE treatments such as the Paris Roof Top
Honey Facial that uses honey harvested from city bee hives
from the roof tops of Paris to nourish and protect the skin
or the Organic Detoxifier Journey using hand-collected organic
seaweed to expel toxins and re-balance the body.
Traveller tried and tested the Holistic treatment. A relaxing
full body massage which includes a massage of the face and
scalp. Using long, slow stroking movements your practitioner
will release tension and the symptoms of stress and guide
you to a state of deep relaxation. The holistic treatment
lasts for about 60 to 90 minutes and costs between 120 to
holistic experience is absolutely divine and comes highly
recommended but the relaxation area for post-treatment is
in a very small “after-space” behind the Cocoons,
which although peaceful, does not do full justice to the
treatment one has received from within the Cocoon.
