from champi to lomi lomi

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNE -

It’s the friendly neigh­bour­hood spa where you can walk in and ask for the typ­i­cally In­dian champi, a re­lax­ing warm oil head mas­sage. In this case, how­ever, in­stead of your home bal­cony, you’ll be en­sconced in a quiet re­treat dot­ted with Bud­dha paint­ings and anointed with aro­matic oils. This is a chain with out­lets at air­ports, and of­fer ex­press neck rubs, man­i­cures and jet lag re­cov­ery fa­cials, but if you’re look­ing to in­dulge, then book an ap­point­ment for the Sig­na­ture Har­mony. For the next hour two ther­a­pists will mas­sage spe­cially blended laven­der oil in rhyth­mic move­ments com­bin­ing Hawai­ian Lomi Lomi, and Deep Tis­sue mas­sage styles. They claim that the oils calm the nerves and the firm strokes re­lax the mus­cle tis­sue and nour­ish skin.

If you're look­ing for a quick fix treat­ment, then try the al­mond honey cleanser or the Aus­tralian tea tree oil ex­fo­li­at­ing scrub, which leave you feel­ing in­stantly re­freshed. To add to your con­ve­nience, O2 has an on­line book­ing fa­cil­ity, so choose your ther­apy, out­let and date and walk in for some ten­der loving care. IN­SID­ERS TIP They have gift cards which make for good presents es­pe­cially dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son COST Rs 3,800 on­wards AT O2 Spa 1st Floor, Ashoka Mall, Bund Gar­den Rd, Op­po­site Sun- n- Sand Ho­tel, Near Bund Gar­den TEL 9561821566

I usu­ally stop at their counter at air­ports be­fore a flight; the quick neck rubs and foot mas­sages pre­pare me for the jour­ney ahead.
