Tested: Pre Birth Essential Treatment
The Experience: Thai Square Spa is made even better in that they have a range of pre and post maternity treatments to choose from, and as someone that is expecting not only does one crave for a proper pampering session but choices are just as crucial. We have come to find that in London, only a few Spas’ offer a choice of maternity treatments and Thai Square Spa is one of them.
I tried out the Pre-Birth Essential Treatment at 32 weeks, perfect for the expectant mother who needs some serious reliving of fluid retention and sore muscles. The experience? Before treatment began I was led to the relaxation area where you could lie down whilst sipping on a cup of freshly brewed tea. After about ten minutes I was led to one of the beautifully adorned treatment rooms. For the entire hour, the hustle and bustle of London escaped my mind whilst lying comfortably to one side, as my therapist used special massage techniques to soothe and relieve tension. Needless to say, dozing off was without question as the massage pressure was light to the touch and exactly what is needed when carrying all that weight around one’s belly.
The focus was on the back, thighs, lower legs and arms before finishing off with a light head massage. The pressure was light and circulatory leaving one to doze off into tranquility.
The verdict: Not only a great treatment for the mind but beneficial if the treatment is done more often. My therapist advised me on returning a month before delivery of the baby, as she noticed a lot of fluid retention and aimed to prevent blood clots from forming. The care by my therapist, the location being within close proximity to Charring Cross Tube Station and the Zen-like sanctuary makes Thai Square Spa a haven that we’re sure to return to for our next maternity pampering treatment.
