It couldn't have been more perfect for a pampering afternoon at Merlin Farm. We thought we'd treat ourselves to a visit from My Personal Sanctuary, sumptuous spa treatments without leaving the comfort of your surroundings. The weather was gorgeous so we fully opened the bi-fold doors on the Eco Cottage and immersed ourselves in nature with the tweeting of the birds adding to the tranquillity.
Lindsay our friendly Spa Therapist arrived half an hour prior to our treatment time to set up, which included a heated treatment bed, aromatherapy diffuser and some relaxing background music. She discussed our chosen treatments and we got to select our own blend of aromatherapy massage oils.
Darrel enjoyed a whole body massage with grapefruit and jasmine aromatherapy oils and I chose reflexology, back, neck & shoulder massage with lemon, geranium & lavender oils. Lindsay checks beforehand how much pressure you would like applied to your massage.
Our massages were wonderful and I'm pretty sure I nodded off briefly more than once!
We both agreed that we found the experience more enjoyable and relaxed than visiting a day spa. The afternoon was all about us and it didn't feel rushed. We could hang around in our robes afterwards and it was nice not to have to go anywhere and stay in the 'zone'.
All products used were Neal's Yard, divine smelling and made using the maximum organic, natural and wild ingredients.
*UPDATE* My Personal Sanctuary has now been taken over by GloPamper. To book a Spa Experience visit https://www.glo-pamper.co.uk/ where you can tailor your own package.
