Treatment of the week: A spa that's toasty-warm and silent
Sick of spas in the broom cupboard of hotels
‘Relaxing’ massages given to the accompaniment of doors slamming or people chatting outside.
Get yourself along to the new Aromatherapy Associates boutique in London’s swanky Knightsbridge and put yourself in the capable hands of lovely therapist Sophie.

This is a new spa, there are just three treatment rooms and they are luxurious, toasty-warm — and silent.
I had one of the brand’s hero treatments — a 90-minute ultimate aromatherapy experience — and it rescued me from the depths of a month-long bout of tonsilitis I’d been suffering from.
Before my massage, I’d chosen an oil purely based on it’s scent (apparently, your body automatically likes the oil you should choose) — and, unsurprisingly, it was from the support range (the range’s motto is: ‘When the going gets tough and you’ve got to keep going’).

The massage uses Swedish and pressure-point techniques to relieve the toughest of knots.
And, just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I was woken from my massage-induced slumber by a little plate of cakes.
All wintery days should be spent like this.
