For thousands of years, people have been using creams, potions, lotions and procedures to try and hold back the clock. People are increasingly looking into spas and retreats, not only for general well-being and to help them manage their health concerns, but also as a preventative – to ensure that they stay healthy and age well. People want to be as well as they can for as long as can, and they realise that to do this they need to support their body and their ageing process.
The therapeutic treatments of spas have been used for centuries to influence emotional and physical well-being. Modern day spas are increasingly creating personalised treatment programs specialising in mental and physical vitality.
Lower Parel may be one of Mumbai’s most exclusive areas, but it’s also one of its busiest. If you want to escape the shoppers and bus fumes, then this hidden gem in the heart of the city is your answer.
Stepping inside ReMedi Spa and Beauty Lounge, you are immediately transported into a scented-candled oasis of calm and quiet. The spa and beauty lounge is indulgently spacious, with beautiful relaxation areas. The treatment menu is impressively extensive with a heavy focus on body treatments and rejuvenation using assorted natural ingredients like Spirulina, fruit flakes rich in vitamin C, Jojoba and many more leaving you detoxed, pleasant and radiant.
Happily, there’s no shortage of more pampering, with a vast range of massages and facials using the highest quality and newest products. This includes a treatment with lifting-remodeling-firming effect, a high-performance anti-ageing range and intensive multi correction for firmness, luminosity and youthfulness. There are other advanced therapies as well, so whether you want prettifying, pampering or more long-term, results-driven treatments, you’ll find it on this menu.
After too many hours slumped over a keyboard and my friend’s wedding a week away, the Revive and Rejuvenate Massage seemed the smart choice. Having listened to and noted my concerns about knotted shoulders and weary legs from my recent trip to Himachal, my sympathetic and skilled therapist set to work using essential oils of Kafir Lime and Pink Grapefruit. With satisfyingly just-hard-enough pressure, she expertly kneaded my desk-bound lifestyle out of my back and identified the tightness in my hamstrings that has made walking feel like a chore. I am left not only feeling reinvigorated and refreshed, but also with silky soft, fragrant skin.
ReMedi Spa and Beauty Lounge is a purists and minimalist dream, crisp, to the point and softened with candles and flowers. The retail space honours pioneering brands like Margaret Dabbs London, Germaine De Capuccini and Alfaparf Milano. My favourite was the Germaine De Capuccini eye cream; it gave my puffy eyes an instant lift. All the products at ReMedi Spa and Beauty Lounge are organic, natural and sourced locally from the forests and farms in India.
Mrs Jo Gaglani, a wellness evangelist and the Owner of ReMedi Spa and Beauty Lounge prefers her treatments to be delivered in silence so you can really switch off, this is also why the spa is so minimal, and it helps you forget about distractions.
What more could a treatment need to offer, the Revive and Rejuvenate massage was simply fabulous and I certainly left feeling cleansed, nourished, invigorated and pampered just as it offered to do so. It also gave me a great overview of all the products in Margaret Dabbs London, Germaine De Capuccini and Alfaparf Milano’s range. Finally I would add the treatment was exceptional value for money and covered everything I am after to relax in comfort.
