Elemis Spa Experience
Looking for a calming space to enjoy state of the art spa treatments? The Merit Club took a trip to the Elemis Flagship in the heart of Mayfair in London for some indulgence. Hidden above their flagship store, Elemis have created a relaxing oasis for beautiful treatments. Within this luxurious townhouse you can expect a professional service that is personalised exactly to your needs, combining skin-care expertise and science with a warming, welcoming atmosphere that guarantees a comforting and worthwhile experience.
What to expect?
We were curious to experience what Elemis Spa has to offer, so we booked an appointment for a Couture facial and a 30 minute Deep tissue massage - just what one needs on a gloomy Wednesday morning!
Our experience at the Elemis flagship began with a cup of the spa’s lovely Christmas tea - a cinnamon and orange treat that was the perfect way to switch off and sink away from everyday worries and pre-Christmas madness. After filling out their consultation form (quite lengthy but thorough) we were walked up to one of their luxurious treatment rooms. The treatment started with a facial scan which analyses the 6 different layers of your skin - it’s fascinating and demonstrates their professional approach to skincare.
WHAT TREATMENTS did we have?
A truly amazing treatment that brightens, revitalises and hydrates the skin. This cellular-boosting treatment is a powerful antidote for dull and tired skin that targets sluggish complexions for radiant and visibly brighter skin. How does it work? Tori, our therapist explained everything that was happening, while it was happening. The ultrasonic peel pumps vibrational energy into the skin to exfoliate and stimulate the removal of impurities and dead skin cells, whilst the galvanic rejuvenating current harnesses the power of Elderberry and Orange flower extracts to restore moisture and vitality. While this may sound complex, just imagine that your skin gets a super boost like never before!
This freestyle massage is customised entirely to your needs with the aim of leaving you feeling grounded and focused so that you can relax, rebalance, and sooth your body, and we are testament to this. Having to sit at our desks hours and hours on end on a normal week means that our backs and shoulders really needed some relief from all the built up stress and tension. Tailored especially for you, your therapist will select an aromatic oil according to your concerns, be they muscle pains or the need for stress relief, relaxation or emotional balance. Your skin will then be prepped to release toxins and the flowing massage will work deeper and deeper into the tension, encouraging optimum circulation.
They argue that this is as effective as an hour’s stretching (but so much more nurturing too!). For us, it’s the free-flowing style of this massage that’s so great, because it allows for the personal preferences that make any effective massage. It’s a body workout that will relieve you of any muscle tensions and stress, while releasing any toxins from your body.
WHAT PRODUCTS did they RECOMMEND to us?
With the colder winter months creeping in, we asked the therapists for their best recommendations on products that will help our dry and dehydrated skin. Safe to say they all feel and smell amazing on your skin and are well worth investing in to combat the harsher season’s effects on our skin.
