Not all spa days are equal and in my line of work I’ve been lucky enough to review a number over the years. There’s the hen do style affairs for starters where the idea is pampering and giggles accompanied by bubbly and maybe a cream tea. All very lovely and I’ve spent an extremely enjoyable day at SenSpa doing just that when my sister in law chose it for her pre-wedding celebration. But what if you want to take a different approach; perhaps you’ve had a stressful or particularly indulgent time and healthy intentions have fallen by the wayside? Maybe you want a day dedicated to getting back on track; time out to invest in yourself, alone, with a like-minded friend or partner?
If so SenSpa’s new Vitality Day provides the perfect kick start in the form of a holistic two step approach to wellbeing. In partnership with healthy meal delivery service Spring Green London, the day includes breakfast and a two-course lunch packed with superfoods with the addition of a Detox fruit smoothie. There’s also a choice of one hour treatment with options including an Aromatic Detox massage or Yin Yang Body Wrap.
The idea of ‘detoxing’ is frankly not one I’m generally a massive fan of; my experiences of colonics and wheatgrass being two cases in point. The Vitality Day experience was a refreshing revelation in that respect.
Breakfast included cooked options and I plumped for avocado on rye bread with poached egg, chilli and lemon. Filling and delicious. The Detox Smoothie was not as I feared, a lurid green concoction but perfectly palatable, verging on enjoyable for someone who isn’t a smoothie fan.
Afterwards I wandered off, free to enjoy a relaxation class, use the gym, swim or simply enjoy the chance to unwind minus phone. I also made the most of the impressive hydrotherapy pool, hot tub, steam rooms and sauna before it was time for my treatment. This was the Detox Massage which is based around a light touch to increase lymph flow and I hoped would help improve my cellulite (although the lovely therapist insisted she couldn’t see any). The scalp massage was a particular treat – this is the kind of Detox I’m all up for.
Lunch was served in the Zen Garden Restaurant where I have eaten previously and only have to inhale the gorgeous aromas of Thai food to start craving Pad Thai or green curry. Whilst that wasn’t on the menu this time, the meals myself and my companion enjoyed were an absolute feast visually and taste wise (with very generous portions too). I had the beetroot burger accompanied by sweet potato fries. My partner went for the salad combo – a bespoke salad where you choose the base, dressing, dip and topping with options including grilled halloumi or in his case, chicken with garlic, ginger and turmeric. It was the most appetising salad I’d seen in a long while. A choice of two healthy desserts followed, a raw chocolate and banana ice cream and a Cacao Chai bowl.
Far from feeling deprived, it was a timely reminder that healthy food can be satisfying, tasty and leave you feeling nourished as oppose uncomfortably stuffed. Finally, in addition to great memories and a healthier outlook, guests take away SenSpa’s own Detox Bath Salts and Body Scrub to continue the good work at home.
The Vitality Day starts from £165. Call 01590 624467 to make a booking or

Fortunately the SenSpa Natural Body Therapy collection has all the ingredients to rejuvenate your skin starting with the feet all the way up to the hairs on your head. With three different signature scents and a variety of products it can be hard to figure out where and what to start with, this is where SenSpa Therapist Lucie Evemy comes in.
Lucie has recommended her top 5 SenSpa luxury skincare products for spring to get the glow back into your skin.
1. SenSpa Nourishing Body Butter
"Some spend so much time outdoors in the spring time prepping their gardens for the summer months which can be very harsh on the skin. It’s important to take good care of your skin and with the powers of Aragon Oil to nourish and to relieve any pain from gardening; this is a luxury spa product I highly recommend for the knees, elbows and even hands."
2. SenSpa Thai Rituals Skin Renewal Body Polish
"Using a body scrub on a weekly basis will remove any dead skin cells and will help you prep ready for your beautiful summer tan. The NEW Thai Rituals Skin Renewal Body Polish will not only achieve this yet it also smells incredible and is perfectly paired with one of the SenSpa Body Butters."
3. SenSpa Signature Essential Oil
"The SenSpa Essential Oil is a very uplifting blend with an exotic mix of 100% pure certified organic essential oils of Lime, May Chang, Orange, Bergamot (Bergapten Free), Lavender, Tea Tree, Geranium, Palmarosa, Rosemary and Ylang Ylang. This oil will help dust off the winter cob webs and get you into the mood for spring and summer. It’s such a versatile product as it can be used in an oil burner, in the bath or you can even add it to your own base oil to create your very own body moisturiser."
4. SenSpa ‘Clear The Mind’ Body Wash
"I highly recommend this luxury spa product for your early morning shower as the scents of peppermint, lemon peel and camphor will set you up for the day. I couldn’t be without it in the mornings now as it really does help me wake up!"
5. SenSpa 'Pure Luxe Serum in Oil'
"This award-winning product is absolutely perfect for rejuvenating your skin's healthy glow. When a change in seasons or lifestyle has caused skin to become dull and lacklustre, the Pure Luxe Serum in Oil helps to restore skin suppleness and fight the first signs of ageing. This product has recently been awarded 'Best Value Serum' at this year's Beauty Shortlist Awards and in fact, the entire skincare collection received the 'Best New Skincare Brand 2016/17' accolade too!"

Detoxing is a great way to rid your body of toxins and remove impurities from essential organs in the body. January is often a popular month for a kick-start to the year ahead, so why not indulge in a detox spa break to get things going. Plus, a detox spa break is currently on offer at our Thai spa in Hampshire!
Boost your immune system, ease tired muscles and relax your mind with access to a variety of facilities at SenSpa. Learn how to get the most out of your detox spa break by following the guide below:
1. Get a good nights sleep
Rest well in a king’s bed every night throughout the course of your detox spa break to wake feeling fresh the next day. Sleep helps your body to restore energy and this is transmitted to the essential cleansing organs.
2. Drink lemon water in the morning
Squeeze half a lemon into room temperature water as soon as you wake. Lemons are packed with immunity boosters like vitamin C, pectin fibre and potassium, which curbs hunger cravings, speeds the body’s enzyme function and stimulates the liver to flush out toxins.
3. Eat wisely
The SenSpa detox spa break includes a healthy breakfast from our Zen garden Thai restaurant. Choose fresh fruit like grapefruit as the fibre and nutrients give a great detox as it encourages the liver to burn fat.
4. Use the hydrotherapy pool and sauna
The large hydrotherapy pool contains underwater benches with bubble jets to increase circulation, improve joint mobility and relax muscles. Use the experience showers and practice taking a hot shower for 5 minutes and then follow with cold water for 30 seconds, repeat 3 times to invigorate the skin. Finally, enjoy the herbal sauna to open pores and cleanse the skin by sweating toxins out of the body.
5. Have a detoxifying treatment
A free 1-hour treatment is included in the detox spa break. The Yin Yang Detox Algae Body Scrub is a popular treatment due to the nutrient rich algae wrap to detoxify and nourish the skin.
Start the New Year with a detox spa break or detox spa day and reap the benefits for months to come. To book this special offer, please call us on 01590 624467 or

Hand creams and lotions can cost an arm and a leg but we can show you how to make your own for FREE! All you need to do is pop to your kitchen, grab your Extra Virgin Olive Oil and some disposable gloves and you are ready to go.
- Pour 1 tablespoon of oil onto your hands and massage, don’t forget the cuticles, the oil will do miracles for your nails too!
- Put on your gloves and keep on for half an hour, (feel free to leave the gloves on for longer if your hands are especially dry).

Used for over 1,400 years for natural beauty treatments in Rome and Egypt, find out what Rhassoul mud can do for your skin.
Rhassoul mud comes in a clay form and is found in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. This mud has been used for over 1,400 years for natural beauty treatments in Rome and Egypt. Rhassoul mud is now used all over the world.
Rhassoul comes from the Arabic word meaning “washing”. Rhassoul mud contains no petrochemical derivatives, no synthetic preservatives and no artificial colourings. Rhassoul Mud is 100% natural.
This mud is difficult to extract as it lies underneath the ground and has done for millions of years. When Rhassoul Mud is first mined it comes out brown and soap like. Up to 12 tonnes of clay is extracted per day. Once extracted the clay is then washed in mountain river water, aerated and sieved to remove any matter.
The Clay is then poured on the ground to be dried for 24 hours using natural sunlight and pure desert breeze within the Sahara desert. This is then refined for a last time enabling it to become finer and softer and useable within the beauty industry.
What are the benefits of Rhassoul Mud?
- Rich in trace minerals such as magnesium, potassium and calcium
- Reduces dryness and flakiness of the skin
- Helps improve skin clarity and elasticity
- Reduces surface oil on the skin
- Tightens and refines the pores
- Detoxifies and exfoliates leaving the skin feel soft and smooth
How it can be used?
Rhassoul mud can be used as a facial, body or scalp and hair mask.
Rhassoul mud can be used within a steam chamber. The steam chamber stimulates the blood supply around the body, relaxing the muscles and opening the pores, enabling the mud to deeply cleanse and soften the skin.
Rhassoul Mud is also combined within spa treatments around the world and used as an exfoliation, mud massage and to moisturise.
Why not try out our luxurious Rhassoul Mud treatment at SenSpa?
