A window of opportunity between personal client appointments and my next QVC TV Bob Mackie shows this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10th/11th and 12th March, found me in room no 8 at Grayshott Spa for some recuperation and relaxation "me" time.
Room no 8 – a lucky number in Chinese Feng Shui, has a south facing sun trap roof terrace. How lovely to sit outside on a sun lounger mid-March – (with many sweaters) reading magazines. Could never do this mid-week at home – I would be rushing for work. Must already be chilling and only been here 2 hours.
Healthy eating is easy at Grayshott and not a limp, lonely lettuce leaf in sight. Think four star gourmet restaurant dining with buffet spreads at lunchtime and 3 course dinners at night. But all courses are portion controlled, low fat and cleverly created both visually and calorifically. So the man in your life, if accompanying you, will not feel he is being starved whilst you are still being super-healthy.
Consultations with nurse Joannie and nutritionist Paula to agree my strategy for detox and de-stress. All my treatments are to be holistic (my choice). "Less is more" is their instructions – no gym, no rushing around and if I feel like doing absolutely nothing then that’s what I should do.
A steam room and an hour Thai foot massage with Faye, (nodded off during it – blissful!). Ended my day with Sue Woodd’s Chi Kung class. She is the most inspiring teacher I have ever met of Yoga, Tai Chi and Chi Kung and is one of my reasons for my repeated return visits to Grayshott.
Day 2 spent all day doing absolutely nothing, reading magazines and eating! Yoga with Sue and another massage.
The remainder of my stay included a Rainforest Rejuvenating facial with Lisa. This hour long treatment included a foot and lower leg massage and exfoliation ( yes I know – nothing to do with the face – but nevertheless very enjoyable and relaxing and part of the treatment) and lymphatic facial massage with cleansing creams and mask.
A classic full body massage each day to moisturise and relax after the steam room. A Micronised marine Algae wrap to detox and help the immune system whilst I lay on a "dry" flotation bed for complete relaxation.
I did doze through most of my treatments but was awake enough to notice that they were of the highest standard. After 4 days of being exfoliated, massaged, oiled and buffed and chilled out with meditation, relaxation classes and Yoga and Chi Kung – I left Grayshott – slightly slimmer, healthier and fitter for the first time in 2 months. A spring in my step and a positive upbeat attitude again to 2011.
