A spa day experience has been top of my bucket list since I first to moved to Dubai, so having recently bought a Cobone deal for a 1 hour massage experience at the Senso Wellness Centre, Radisson Blu for the bargain price of 179AED, I decided this was the perfect time to cash it in.
Hidden in a quiet corner of the Radisson Blu Hotel in Dubai Media City, the Senso Wellness Centre has a calming and peaceful ambience that infiltrates your senses as soon as you walk through the door.
After a short wait in Senso's quiet and relaxing reception space my masseuse arrived to lead me towards one of the Spa's 5 unique treatments rooms through a tranquil, candle lit corridor complete with natural wooden flooring and spiritual Buddha statuette – I could feel the positive energy flowing over me as we continued along.
As we approached the treatment room I was directed towards a private bathroom and asked to get changed into the traditional massage attire – a 'fetching' pair of disposable underpants and bathrobe - in preparation for my massage.
When my therapists reappeared I was asked if I had any concerns then advised to hoist myself onto the onto the massage table that was situated in the middle of the room – this was a bit of a challenge. Once I got myself comfortable I lay in wait for my first Dubai massage experience to begin.
Right from the start it was clear my therapist was highly skilled and knew what she was doing. She fully understood what my body needed without having to ask. Applying the right amount of pressure – not too firm, not too soft - she managed to successfully knead away all my muscle tension and kinks and, for the first time in weeks, I felt refreshed and completely relaxed.
Being a something of a massage novice, I can't even begin to tell you what kind of massage I received at this session. All I can say is that the Cobone voucher stipulated that I could choose from an Aroma, Swedish, Balinese, Sports or the Senso signature massage. At this session I wasn't given a choice but after reading about the massages that Senso Wellness Centre offer I think it could have been the 'Senso Signature Massage'' which they describe as a 'combination of a Sports, Swedish and Aromatherapy Massage'.
My massage experience at the Senso Wellness Centre was amazing from beginning to end. Not only was it was extremely relaxing and therapeutic, it exceeded all of my expectations. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to relax and unwind - just keep your eyes pealed for Cobone voucher the original prices are a little pricey.
