Beauty Review: Refresh Your Mind, Body And Skin With This Aromatherapy Massage

Damai Spa’s Espa Aromatherapy Massage not only relaxes your body but also leaves your skin and scalp feeling and looking healthier.

This 90-minute massage begins with a brief consultation to help my therapist choose an oil suitable for my specific needs. There are seven to choose from: Detoxifier, De-Stresser, Muscle Relaxer, Jet-Lag Reviver, Immune Booster, Energiser and Body Toner. After discerning that I was suffering from body aches, I was recommended the Muscle Relaxer oil to help warm and loosen up tightness in the body. The massage uses a mixture of soothing strokes and firm kneading that quickly put me to sleep. The finishing touch of the treatment is a head massage using the Espa Pink Hair and Scalp Mud, which has mineral-rich red clay and apricot kernel oil to nourish skin and strengthen hair strands.

The Verdict

This strikes the perfect balance between a relaxing and deep tissue massage. The treatment was calming and helped me unwind, while my muscles felt significantly less stiff. I especially loved the head portion as it not only helped to relieve my headache, but also left my scalp healthier. My skin also felt softer and smoother after. $270, Damai Spa (Grand Hyatt Singapore), tel: 6738-1234
