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.
