#ELLETriesIt: Iridium Spa, St Regis Mumbai

Four ways to boost your beach body

WHAT: Iridium Signature Massage
DURATION: 90 minutes
PRICE: Rs 8,600
I don’t think I even know how to relax any more. And being away from my phone for the 90-minute duration of the signature massage? That kind of thing makes me panicky these days. Just moments into the treatment, however, I felt my body go slack with relief. It began with a gentle dry-palm pressure body massage. The masseuse then worked on my pressure points and stretched my limbs to loosen up the painful knots I’ve accumulated. Finally, the best part: an oil massage with a heavenly blend of roses and the healing immortelle flower that had me so relaxed, I fell right to sleep. Hello, instant staycation!

For a beach-body boost
Take some time off from frantic holiday planning to make sure your body’s all buffed up. Smooth any unevenness around your thighs and hips with Iridium’s hour-long Anti-cellulite body treatment. The therapist starts with gentle body brushing followed by a full-body scrub with sea salt and thermal mud to get rid of toxins. The Dimple Vanisher by the Hungarian beauty brand Omorovicza does the real work though — once massaged, the cream reduces the appearance of cellulite and puffiness for days. Rs 5,800

For beating jet lag
For the ultimate body detox, try their Classic Hungarian body treatment. The 90-minute treatment first uses a combination of body brushing and a buffing balm to smoothen the skin. The therapist then slathers your body with an antioxidant-rich moor mud mask by Omorovicza. The mask reduces inflammation and boosts healthy skin production. After the detox, your muscles are treated to a massage with rose quartz stones and a firming body oil. If you’re feeling particularly tense, they’ll even add a scalp massage to the mix. Rs 8,600

For a post-vacay glow
Sign up for the 80-minute Blue Diamond Brightening Facial; it’ll give you instantly radiant skin while increasing the production of collagen, which improves firmness of skin, all in 80 minutes. Rs 7,800
