GO­ING TRA­DI­TIONAL

Friday - - Leisure Charts -

When I ditched the op­tion of a re­lax­ation mas­sage at Taj Dubai’s Jiva Spa and went for a pu­rifi­ca­tion treat­ment based on Ayurveda, I soon dis­cov­ered I’d made the right call. The spa has much go­ing for it – the best linen robes, beau­ti­ful mu­sic and sooth­ing in­te­ri­ors – but the Pavithri mas­sage just took my breath away. A lym­phatic drainage rit­ual, it be­gan with clean­ing my feet, be­fore my ther­a­pist Tai gen­tly mas­saged away all the tox­ins from my tis­sues us­ing a blend of tulsi, gin­ger and lime oils. An ex­tremely ef­fec­tive detox­i­fy­ing treat­ment, I know it worked be­cause I left the spa glow­ing. And it wasn’t just with hap­pi­ness.

A 60-minute Pavithri mas­sage costs Dh480. Call 04 438 3100 to book.
