Re-born at CityPoint Spas

 Permanent link   All Posts

Guests of Apex Hotels in London can now enjoy an exclusive 20% discount at CityPoint Spa – one of the city’s most luxurious health fitness and spa facilities. To see what was in store for our guests we sent along our Marketing Executive Danica to experience CityPoint’s famous ‘Signature Treatment’ ...

CityPoint Club's relaxing treatment room

As I stepped into the elevator that took me down to CityPoint Club, the hustle and bustle of the busy London streets above quickly faded away. Inside I met Roberto, my therapist for the afternoon, who led me to my treatment room where the music and ambiance induced a lovely sense of tranquillity. Roberto explained what the treatment entailed and the positive effects it had (plenty more than just relaxation). He then gave me the chance to select what oil I preferred to use, I thought this was a great personal touch.

My treatment started with a gentle full body exfoliation which was as invigorating as relaxing. This first stage of the treatment left my skin feeling unbelievably smooth - it was so soft I could rival a new born!

Then came stage two, the application of my personally selected oils. During my consultation with Roberto I had mentioned that I am a keen gym enthusiast.  It was like Roberto had been my personal trainer the night before – he knew exactly what muscle groups were aching the most. My massage also included the traditional Thai technique of aromatic poultices, giving this treatment the unique touch I was not expecting.

Between the heated drizzled oils, the aromatic poultices and Roberto’s remarkable massage technique, every strain and twinge floated away. Then to finish off the treatment Roberto gave me a pressure point massage that almost sent me to sleep as I was so peaceful.

This two hour treatment revitalised by body, released stress and left me with a feeling of complete well-being. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who wants to feel they have left all the strains of day-to-day life behind and are looking for two hours of complete paradise!
