The past week was very stressful and pressure-packed at work that my shoulders and lower back has been aching so much. A friend gifted me a therapy session at Zen, The Spa.
On booking, the attendant asked me specifically what type of treatment I would like. I told her about my longing pains at the back and she suggested that I take the Zen Herbal Compress to ease the stiffed shoulders.
Smiles and hospitality welcomed me at the 5th floor of Al Ghurair Rayhaan Rotana. The atmosphere conveys that I will have a good retreat and a calm break from the busy life. My therapist, Raju explained further the treatment I am about to receive. He assured me that the hot herbal compress indeed is what my stressed muscles need. The 60-minute treatment started with foot massage. The body compress was more than lukewarm in the beginning but my body was able to tolerate the warm cloth.
I used the sauna after the therapy. The therapist suggested some hot oil that I can use for immediate therapy which I can do by myself or with the help of my wife. He shared various tips on how to achieve a balanced well-being despite the unavoidable pressures and stress around me.
The Zen spa team also briefed me about the other services they offer such as Aromatherapy, Thai Massage, Hot Stone Massage and Foot Reflexology among others.
What a relaxing treatment! Just as exactly what every busy pro needs. My stressed body was finally relaxed. I feel rejuvenated.
