After a weekend in Beverley celebrating our anniversary, the boyfriend and I knew we needed one more thing to look forward to before the morning phone alarms were turned back on, so we headed straight to Sessions Spa.
Located through Beverley’s North Bar Without, just before getting to Molescroft, it’s amazing to think such a grand, former courthouse could leave you feeling so isolated from the rest of the world, and I left feeling like a new woman.
The spa has recently undergone an amazing transformation, creating an incredible atmosphere that left us untied from our phones and diaries, and the opportunity to spend quality time doing the thing we love best – absolutely nothing.
We were shown to the changing areas where we got into our cozzies and the most luxurious, over-sized dressing gowns in any spa I’ve been to.
Hotels take note, I do not want small dressing gowns in rooms, I want the robes straight from Sessions.
We began our relaxation retreat in the lounge area with a coffee and magazines, shying away from any outside light and noise.
We had full use of the steam room and tropical shower, and we laid like vegetables in the 45 minutes leading up to our treatments.
When it was time, we were collected by the beauty therapists and before the words “Do you want to be in a joint treatment room” even left the staff member’s mouth, my head was shaking with defiance and I knew I needed to be left alone.
My treatment room was palatial and magnificent.
The scents of a spa wafted through the air and I could already hear the crashing sounds of waves humming across the speakers.
After a swift consultation, I had my swimming costume rolled down and was lying on the warmed bed ready for my hot stone massage.
It was incredible. One hour of being stretched and unwound with hot stones left my body completely limp, and I could hear every creak and crack being alleviated.
Then it was onto the yoga facial, something I had never experienced before, and I cannot wait to book in again for another.
My face was nourished with countless creams and toners, as well as exfoliated, and my cheeks and forehead were massaged until my face resembled that of a newborn baby.
My neck was also massaged, and my head was gently moved from side to side to really get rid of the knots and aches.
After almost two hours of pure bliss, the therapist performed several minutes of meditation in order to wake my body up, and I felt like I was floating on air.
With magical oils running through my air from the facial, I was so glad we had been booked in for a wash and blow-dry before we left.
With further head massaging throughout the conditioning process, I looked as if I had had a full colour as my hair felt so shiny and soft.
I can see how the stars become so accustomed to having personal hairdressers making them look fabulous every day.
We left elated, with the boyfriend exclaiming it was the best massage he had ever had, and after our four hours of pure relaxation it was back into the outside world and onto measuring for some new kitchen cabinets.
Sessions Spa is a true oasis of calm right on our doorstep, and I couldn’t recommend it enough.
