Full-Body SwediSh MaSSage
The Cure, Media City, Dubai
A fter a busy day at work, my massage at the Cure Spa couldn’t have come at a better time. The fact I was attending with my mum – in Dubai on holiday from the UK – made it all the more special.
What better way to spoil her than arranging a mother-and-daughter massage as a treat as I won’t see her on Mother’s Day?
The staff were very welcoming and made us feel extremely comfortable from the moment we arrived.
The therapist suggested we both have the Swedish massage as it manipulates the deep layers of muscle to enhance function and promote relaxation and well-being.
Once the therapist began kneading my tired muscles, all of my work stresses evaporated. Thanks to the scented oils of rose there was a heavenly aroma filling the room. I really was finding it hard not to drift off to sleep, but despite my attempts not to, I was soon snoozing.
I forced myself awake, but with the soft sounds of music in the background I could have been floating. I began to realise why this place is called The Cure. It really is the antidote to all stresses and strains.
I woke up properly when the therapist began massaging my lower back – painful thanks to sitting upright at my desk for nine hours a day, I often end up tense and hobbling. But the massage she gave my head soon had my aches disappearing and was spectacular.
By the end my body no longer felt like mine. In fact, it felt like I was given a new one altogether. To be honest, I completely forgot about my mum, who was in the other room.
As my therapist gave me a glass of water and told me to relax for a couple of minutes, I pondered on how on earth I’d get up and out.
I wanted to stay there for the whole evening. But as I left the room and waited for my mum, she breezed out of the room and looked happier and 10 years younger to boot!
She was beaming and said that she was now also totally relaxed and ready to enjoy her evening with me. What next… A nice meal overlooking the marina. Perfect. Cost: Dh200, 60 min. To book visit www.thecure.ae or call 04 391 6485
