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
