Pamper yourself Pretty!

We all live a busy life with chaotic and frenzied schedules and often we do not realize how much stress our mind and body go through. I really think we all must indulge in some sort of recreational activities that relax the mind and the body like watch a movie, play a sport, a stroll in the park, dance, meditate...But all aside sometimes it is necessary to pamper yourself and head to a spa!

I recently visited the Four Fountains Spa where I got the opportunity to try two of their most popular spa therapies – Shirodhara and Foot reflexology.

Here is my experience -
Shirodhara is a unique Ayurvedic therapy where warm herbal oil is rhythmically poured on the forehead, specifically on the "third eye", allowing the oil to run through the scalp and onto the hair. It helps increase your blood circulation and relax the muscles of your head region and de-stresses your mind and body! This therapy really helped me unwind myself and instantly calmed me. The other therapy that I tried was foot reflexology which was a very pleasing and soothing experience. Pressure is applied to specific points on the feet using hand or using wooden massage sticks to break up stress in this therapy. I felt instantly refreshed and energized.

The whole experience was so revitalizing and comforting that I just didn't feel like leaving the spa! The beautiful aroma, the dimly lit up rooms, the very friendly and warm staff made my spa experience extremely delightful. I would like to thank the Four Fountains Spa  for the wonderful experience!

What I liked most about the spa was how seriously it was focussing on "de-stressing", even the cushions are designed in a certain way to help back muscles relax. I found the spa services reasonably priced too, so next time you feel tired and want to de-stress yourself, visit the Four Fountains Spa and indulge in good quality services without burning a hole in your pocket!
