Mandarin Oriental spa is ringing in Chinese New Year on 7 February, with the Fire Monkey Spa Experience. Year of the Fire Monkey is said to be “one of change, requiring strength and agility in order to succeed”.
“It begins with a relaxing foot ritual with rose oil, followed by a full body exfoliation incorporating chrysanthemum flowers which are good for relieving stress. Following a warm shower with the addition of ‘pomelo water’ – traditionally used to wash away negative feelings, guests can experience the power and deep relaxation that comes with a short, guided singing bowl session. The bowl is gently placed on the abdomen, and the ‘singing’ sound provides stimulation for the body’s energy channels. The soothing hands-on body massage that follows combines the powerful effects of oriental meridian massage with a blend of ylang ylang, rose and calming chamomile oils to encourage joy and emotional release.
Finally, guests are offered a sweet plum tea, and on leaving the spa will receive a traditional Chinese lai see lucky red packet which includes a further spa treat for 2016.”
The FHT’s International Therapist team visited the Mandarin Oriental, which employs FHT members, to find out what makes the award-winning spa such a success and why they choose to employ FHT members in their dedicated team of highly-skilled holistic beauty and complementary therapists, “Hiring FHT members provides Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park reassurance that the therapists are professionally qualified to a high standard and properly insured to be able to work safely and confidently.”
