Autumn body treats for all your senses at the Peak Health Club in Knightsbridge, London
Travel writer Sara Darling checks in to the Peak Health Club at the 5 star Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel in Knightsbridge for some autumn pampering.
In just over an hour you can feel like a new woman, with the Jumeirah Sensory Wellness Journey at the Peak Health Club in Knightsbridge. With autumn well and truly making an appearance, it is the perfect time to treat yourself and get your skin in check.
Over the long, hot summer, skin has probably been getting pretty toasty, and smothered in layers of sun cream, and instead of just putting it under wraps for six months, why not treat yourself to a delightfully luxurious and all natural Pevonia treatment.
Moments away from the hustle and bustle of central London, the luxe Club is a dreamy place to head to while away the afternoon. Offering indulgent massages, pampering sessions, beauty treatments as well as a pool and gym, it is set on the ninth floor of the hotel. You might be tempted to stay all day and soak up the panoramic views.
Deciding I really needed to take some time out for me, I booked in for the ‘Jumeirah Sensory Wellness Journey’. Designed to invigorate and rejuvenate, as well as relax and repair, the 75 minute bespoke treatment was certainly a treat for the senses.
With a choice of three different and equally delightful combinations of natural ingredients: coconut and pineapple (for anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and moisturising properties), jasmine and lavender (to calm, heal, soothe and smooth skin) and peach and vanilla (known to moisturise and brighten skin, whilst protecting it from stress), clients have the option to choose one to suit their requirements, guided by a therapist during a consultation prior to treatment.
The relaxing session begins with an over the towel massage on a heated bed, where you are encouraged to let the daily stresses disappear. This is followed by your personal blend of aromatherapy products which are applied in a sequence across the body as a scrub to remove dead skin.
Next is a warm cloth to gently cleanse you and get rid of the residue, finished with the aromatic fusion to cleanse, tone and moisturise the face, which leaves you relaxed and refreshed.
Who knew you could find paradise in Knightsbridge?! This personalised experience ensures that any problem areas are addressed, and the subtle, yet aromatic medley that you have chosen will last for hours to come. I tried the super relaxing jasmine and lavender, and now I want to experience the rest!
