SHIRODHARA @ VEDIC SPA MANTRA, DELHI
 
Bringing together the five elements of nature under one roof in a contemporary way, the entrance to this spa itself speaks about the belief in secrets of masters behind health and rejuvenation. The Vedic Spa ‘Mantra’ is the latest visionary offering of the Baidyanath group that believes in bringing the nature in you to return to a state of balance and well-being. Taking you to deeper levels of self-realisation is their signature massage ‘Shirodhara’.
 
With the sacred sound of Om in the background, the massage begins by dipping one’s feet in hot water, followed by a massage called ‘abhyangam’ using herbal medicated oil with therapeutic properties. To achieve an instant state of calm and rejuvenation, the next stage involves a steady, continuous flow of heated oils on the ‘third eye’ chakra for nearly half an hour. The oils are allowed to flow over the scalp and through the hair, creating a blissful state of semi-consciousness and heightened awareness. As Dr Sonia at the spa says, “The oil caresses the third eye, the centre of human consciousness and has a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of the mind, stimulating the endocrine system and neurotransmitters.” The treatment ends with a head massage and steam bath.
Duration: Ninety minutes
Price: 3,000 plus taxes
 
BUAH BUAHAN FACIAL @ AHVATARAS THE SPA, BANGALORE
 
As you enter Ahvataras The Spa, you are greeted by a beautiful Buddha (brought back from Thailand). Smiling therapists proffer water and herbal tea as you wait to get your skin examined. The décor – with lots of dark wood furniture and accessories – and soothing Balinese music evoke the ambience of the Fareast.
 
The signature facial here is the Buah Buahan facial done with fruit infusion and aloe vera. Prior to that though the therapist offers you a soothing Lemongrass infusion pedicure. A coconut scrub is used to slough away pigmentation and rough skin. After a lemongrass-infused aroma oil massage, a chocolate mask is applied and the feet are wrapped in foil. Postpedicure, you are taken to facial area where you are given a pretty sarong to drape yourself in. From then it is utter bliss, as the therapist starts the treatment with a gentle head massage. She cleanses the face with the softest of touch, and then applies aroma oil and a ricebased scrub using a gentle massage technique – which puts the lightest of pressures at all the nerve and lymph points on the face, neck and shoulders. The facial ends after about an hour with a gentle back massage. Here’s Bali in a corner of India.
Duration: Two hours
Price: INR 3,000
