Festive and Wedding season is often super taxing on the body and mentally stressful. I am referring to the constant late nights, the regular use of makeup, the eating out and more. A spa session at the best spa’s in Hyderabad will be a great mood uplifter. It is just the refreshment you’re tired and aching body needs.

Heavenly Spa at Westin

One tiring day I decided to visit the heavenly spa at Westin. My therapist for the day led me to their massage room and began with soaking my feet in warm water. For this, she used mineral salts to cleanse them after which she guided me to a steam room. I took a good 10 minutes of steam which was infused Eucalyptus oil. Post-steam, I had a full body scrub which was done with essential minerals and it lasted for 35 minutes. I could feel the scrub removing all my dead skin leaving it supple and soft immediately after a shower.
Their next step was an hour-long procedure of their signature massage. This concentrated on reliving the stress and enhancing blood circulation in my body.
As the warm oil seeped into my body, I could feel my aches slowly fade away. My therapist spent the last 10-15 minutes massaging my face and head. It was followed by a bath in Jacuzzi which was like a cherry on the top of the entire wellness experience.
The best part of this package was that all the facilities from the steam to Jacuzzi were right in my room. The post-therapy part included relaxing with a cup of green tea, dark chocolate, and dry fruits.

The Aura spa offers a luxurious collection of time-tested ancient and traditional healing remedies. Their massage treatments are largely inspired by unique Indian traditions. The oils and herbs of various mixtures at Aura stimulate relaxation, rejuvenation, and detoxification in the body. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted with a friendly smile from the staff. They gave their best time explaining about the suitable massage for me depending on my requirement.
After changing, the therapist started off by scrubbing my body with an herbal mixture and essential oils. It left my skin feeling smooth, soft, saturated and tan free. It was also a divine experience leaving me feeling cleansed, fit and absolutely refreshed. The therapist then began the massage, starting from my feet and slowly moved her way upwards. She also emphasized on my knots. Instead of a kneading movement, she rhythmically moved her fists up and over my nerves. This moved the knots to an absolute edge until they almost vanished.
Post this, she gave me a slight head massage and crystal facial to rejuvenate my skin. From here I went for a shower. I couldn’t wait to get home after such a relaxing experience to get some good sleep. Altogether, it was truly an overwhelming experience.

Hot Stone Massage at Sheraton Hotel

After contemplating over the choice of a massage from their assorted menu, I chose the signature- Hot Stone Massage. The therapist led me to a room which had compact and cozy interiors. The additional use of hot stones in the massage makes this therapy an increasingly popular pick at day spas. It is a process where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands. The heat generated can be both deeply soothing and help loosen up tight muscles.
The therapist began my massage by mildly pressing and massaging my whole body with oil. After that, she gently rubbed the heated stones into muscles and tissues on both sides of my body. The firmness of the stone coupled with the heat to enhance the curative benefits of the massage. The warm stones were also left in specific key points along my spine, palms of my hand, my belly, and chest to help me relax. This process was repeated on the entire body for a duration of 60-90 minutes. After wrapping up the massage my body felt calm and de-stressed like never before.
At the end, the therapist accompanied me to a refreshing steam, followed by an invigorating bath. The post-therapy part included a steaming cup of green tea that left me revitalized and energized for the day.

Spa La Vie by L’Occitane
Spa La Vie by the international brand L’Occitane offers a complete package of a refreshing, calm and luxurious spa day. Its ambiance has a very calming vibe and classy interiors that will compel you to step into you Zen mode.I was welcomed by the staff of the spa who directed me towards there lounge area and handed over the spa menu to me. I was also offered a pair of spa slippers and a detoxifying cup of tea that consisted of lemon, ginger, and honey. Treatments offered at the spa include massages, facials, scrubs, wraps, Ayurveda treatments and couple’s treatments.
After selecting my package I was lead to a private chamber where I changed and slipped into the spa robe. My therapist started the treatment with a foot massaging ritual to relax my body. For this, I was asked to soak my feet in a bowl of warm water scented with rose petals. I was then led to the steam room where I enjoyed a nice 10 minutes steam before my scrub began. This delicious texture enriched in Shea butter left my skin feeling satin soft and perfectly prepared for the next step-massage.
The 60-minute Aromachologie relaxing message left my muscles free of stiffness and completely relaxed. This was followed by a Chinese acupressure and Balinese massage technique that stimulated circulation and eased my tensions. After 120 minutes of pampering, I could feel my soft and hydrated skin glowing with health and looking visibly suppler. At the end, a cup of the same steaming tea was served again and this time it felt even better.

Serena Spa at Radisson Blu
At Radisson, I decided to go with the Serene Dhara 60 minute massage. This is an ancient Ayurvedic treatment that is all about pouring warm medicated oil on the 3rd eye point of the forehead. It allows energy to flow properly and helps relieve headaches, migraine, insomnia, and stress.
After I changed into my robe my masseuse welcomed me with a traditional foot soaking ceremony. After this began an accurate acupressure on my legs, hands, and neck which lasted for about half an hour. After working on the pressure points in my head for a while, warm oil started dripping on my forehead. The massage continued concentrating on pressure points. For about 25 minutes, hot oil drizzled along my hairline and massaged into the rest of my head. My eyes were covered with protection and hair was pulled back.
The massage felt pretty wonderful with the pressure being perfect afterward I spent a few minutes sipping hot tea in the recuperation area.
