#ELLETriesIt: Amaltas Spa by L’Occitane
An oasis of tranquility
Think ‘spa’, and you think about an oasis of tranquility. Amaltas Spa by L’Occitane delivers on that promise. It’s the first in NCR, located at ANYA in Gurgaon, and emphasises personalising treatments and services offered.
I tried two services from their extensive menu: the Signature Amaltas Awakening Massage and Almond Silhouette Reshape Body Treatment — the combination of Swedish and Balinese massage techniques, along with Chinese acupressure, sounded exactly like the powerhouse combination I needed.
The Swedish massage technique applies deep pressure that releases metabolic waste from muscle tissues, while the Balinese technique eased tensed muscles by kneading, stroking, rolling and pressure-point stimulation. They use a blend of essential oils from the Amaltas flower and L’Occitane’s signature Aromachologie oil, a combination that boosts metabolism, strengthens skin and relieves pain.
This is followed by a more indulgent treatment called the Almond Silhouette Reshape Body Treatment, which involves a lymphatic drainage massage with L’Occitane’s Almond Supple Skin Oil and Almond Beautiful Shape, both of which help reduce cellulite from problem areas. The oil itself is rich in vitamin E, great for toned skin and firm body. The massage not only left me relaxed and refreshed, but also with skin as soft as a baby’s.
Signature Amaltas Golden Shower Flower Massage, Rs 3,500, plus taxes, for 60 minutes. Almond Silhouette Reshape Body Treatment, Rs 3,750, for 60 minutes.
