The Detox Body Treatment at SensAsia Urban Spa - #Wellness #Review

This Ramadan I’m remaining focused on my vow to 360 wellness; mentally, physically and spiritually. Intentionally making choices that unclog my mind, detoxify my body and energize my spirit has me feeling better than I’ve felt in months. 

In the pursuit of all things detoxifying, I decided to try the “The Detox” treatment at SensAsia urban spa, which is designed to fight low energy levels, lack of vitality, fluid retention, dull skin and stubborn fat. The spa program complements a healthy diet and exercise regime promoting a holistic long term approach to wellness. 

The Detox treatment starts with a full body brushing; body brushing has done its round in the wellness industry, and many swear by it. It's benefits include exfoliation, reducing stress and cellulite but more importantly stimulating the lymphatic system which is responsible for elimination of waste product from our body cells and boosting blood circulation.  

After the dry brushing, my therapist Jenny exfoliated my entire body using the SensAsia Hot Salt & Pepper Scrub, and as she rubbed me down I felt the slightly abrasive texture of the Himalayan salt erode through layers of dead skin. After washing the scrub off, my skin felt smooth and babylike. Jenny then applied the seaweed and herbal mask from Elemis on my entire body. The mask contains marine algae and detoxifying essential oils including juniper and lemon.

My body was then wrapped in a foil like material to envelop my body heat, causing me to sweat out the toxins drawn out by the clay mask. It was definitely my favorite part of the treatment. As I lay wrapped up on the heated bed, Jenny gave me an mini facial and scalp massage which was so gentle I fell asleep. I woke up when it was time to wash of the mask and I was pleased to see my skin was looking plump and positively radiant.

Jenny then gave me a quick full body massage with the Elemis Cullutox Active Body Oil, which is supposed to target cellulite and stubborn fat, and at this point I feeling ahh-mazing. The treatment ended with the SensAsia detox drink, a warm concoction of honey, cayenne pepper and lemon, all of which have detoxifying and fat burning properties. 

The Detox is available at all SensAsia Urban Spa locations and costs 795dhs for a 105 mins treatment. You can visit any of their branches at The Village in Jumeirah, Emirates Golf Club, Palm Jumeirah or Souk Al Manzil in Downtown Dubai.
