In­stant calm

WHAT Ho-leaf and Rose­mary Mus­cle Melt Mas­sage, £80 for 60 min­utes WHERE Bhuti, Rich­mond, Lon­don,

THE LOW DOWN When it comes to re­lax­ation, B hut idoesn’ t cut corners. The lit­tle haven on the hill oozes tran­quil i ty, from its chapel-con­verted yoga stu­dio to its or­ganic ve­g­an­cafe. The ther­apy rooms its on the top floor of bhuti, away from any out­side stress ors you can think of and straight into a world of peace and quiet–telling of the treat­ment that fol­lowed. Us­ing medium firm­ness teamed with calm­ing strokes, it was a nice break from the deep, in­tense sports mas­sages i’ m used to and gave me an op­por­tu­nity to se­ri­ously un­wind. The use of the hot stones helped my mus­cles to ease out of ten­sion fur­ther–the cherry on top.

THE VERDICT It only took this hour to lift my mood and spir­its for the week ahead. Amanda Khouv
