India Today - - WELLNESS - By Chumki Bharad­waj

The Ar­me­ni­ans dis­cov­ered it, the Greeks glo­ri­fied it and the French glam­ourised it. But wine’s glo­ri­ous jour­ney now makes its way from in­ges­ta­tion to in­dul­gence via the well­ness route. Drink a glass of red wine for an­tiox­i­dant good­ness, but sink your triv­ial pursuits in a bath tub full of wine. To get into the mood for the 90-minute ses­sion, the wrap of the grapes be­gins with a refreshing glass of grape juice, fol­low­ing which, the well-trained ther­a­pist kneads the body into sub­mis­sion with an ef­fleurage mas­sage to warm the tis­sues. Af­ter the body has been oiled, warmed, prepped and read­ied, a grainy, ex­fo­li­at­ing sludge of red wine mixed with warm wa­ter, grapes, sea salt, honey, rice pow­der and grape seed oil is rubbed all over. Once you’ve been ex­fo­li­ated and pol­ished, it’s time for a hot shower, af­ter which the ther­a­pist slathers on cold laven­der mois­turiser to quench the skin. The ad­van­tages of the ther­apy in­clude de­fend­ing the skin from free rad­i­cals and pro­mot­ing tis­sue elas­tic­ity.
