Yes, you read the title right. Up until recently I'd NEVER been to a spa, or had anyone pamper me at all other than my boyfriend's occasional attempts at a back massage or the odd trip to the hairdressers so it was a lovely surprise when I was contacted by Sessions Spa in Beverley to pop in for a relaxing evening of treatments!
Sessions Spa is encased within a grand old building that I've walked past countless times and wondered what it's like inside. Instantly on my arrival I was greeted with smiles and offered a lovely comfy seat in the main beauty salon area while I waited to be shown into the spa itself and after a short wait I was taken into the spa area to begin the treatments!
The spa area itself seemed a world away from the busy salon and instantly I felt relaxed and soothed by the calming music. Surprisingly, I was the first to arrive so I got comfy on the sofas with a peppermint tea and obviously my first instinct was to Snapchat everything in sight!
I was joined by some of the other girls invited and we changed into our swimwear (and the biggest robes I've ever seen in my life) and went off for our massages!
I was treated to a 30 minute back, neck and shoulder massage and since I'm stressed beyond belief planning my bloody wedding, I couldn't have been more ready for it! The masseuse used a range of Espa products that I got to pick from initially for the perfect spa experience that was personal and best suited to my needs at the time. Afterwards I honestly felt amazing and I highly doubt it will be my first and last massage!
Afterwards me and one of the other girls took some time out in the Steam & Relaxation room which was like an intense sauna. It made my skin look and feel amazing and the steam seemed to clear out all of my pores and detox my skin - just what I needed!
Lastly, it was time for my complimentary cut and blow-dry in the salon area. Cappuccino at the ready, I had a little trim and refresh of my hair and with the help of some L'Oreal and Kerastase products it was looking soft and shiny rather than my usual dull and dry!
To top it all off, we were given a generous goodie bag filled with lots of products that were used and are available to buy at the salon and of course I couldn't help myself but pick up even more bits from the shop area...
It was a perfect evening and I'm so thankful to Sessions Spa for inviting me along! I'll definitely be back in the run up to my wedding to relax a bit and stop me tearing my hear out!
If you're in the Beverley area, I'd strongly recommend you pay Sessions a visit as there's so many treatments available and the standard is top class!
Now what to book next...?
Always, Alice x
