Festive Break at Ayush Spa
If you're wondering how to avoid the crowds and queues whilst doing your Christmas shopping this festive season then why not consider escaping for a weekend to Ayush Wellness Spa in Jersey, with the island's spectacular Christmas market, La Fete de Noue, plentiful tax free shopping and boutique stores it makes browsing for gifts a joy. After all, it's important to relax and treat yourself too before the onslaught of family, friends and parties.
From 1st - 24th December this enchanting island is lit up with hundreds of tiny lights as the islanders celebrate La Fete de Noue. Wander through the streets of St Helier and browse market stalls of local arts and crafts, festive goodies and unique Jersey produce. For the more adventurous there are 'Winter Wonderland' walks around the coastline and countryside plus the thrill of an evening ghost tour amongst historic sights.
When you're all done shopping and exploring why not rest weary legs and minds at the island's premier spa resort, Ayush Wellness Spa situated within the renowned Hotel de France. This stunning rooftop spa is positioned above the streets of St Helier with breathtaking sea views from the bedrooms' floor to ceiling windows allowing you to catch a glimpse of festive crowds as you unwind in the spa's calm and luxurious ambience.
Within the extensive portfolio of spa treatments you will recognise some familiar spa therapies that have been slightly adapted to maintain the Ayurvedic philosophy as well as the more unusual:
- The foot ritual of Padhabyanga will bring life back to the sorest feet and aching limbs by applying gentle pressure to restore energy levels. An anti-inflammatory oil helps to reduce swelling and relieve tiredness, a superb treat for shoppers feet.
- The signature Ayurvedic Shirodhara 'third eye' sedation therapy is a wonderfully soothing experience that simply melts away the stresses and cares of everyday life enabling you to forget shopping lists and menu plans for a while resulting in deep sleep and a quieting of the mind.
- For those who may have over indulged during the excesses of December the energising Abhyanga two-therapist massage will restores energy and vitality and leave you ready to hit the streets again in search of the perfect gift.
- If you're suffering from the classic winter cold then Nasya a traditional treatment which relieves the discomfort associated with head and sinus problems can offer instant relief. A combination of massaging the face, head and chest pressure points with medicated oils and steam makes this treatment an instant relief from sinus trouble.
Ayurveda, is the oldest healing science known to man and is based on the belief that to achieve true health we must be in physical, emotional and spiritual balance. This philosophy is wholly embodied at Ayush Wellness Spa through its superior treatments and spa environment. The resident Ayurvedic physician works with Indian and Western therapists to customise herbal medicated treatments, as well as providing personal consultations to spa guests
With a varied spa programme that offers Ayurvedic treatments, customised men's therapies, alternative healing, couples' packages, yoga and meditation, the Ayush Wellness Spa menu is dedicated to nourishing and healing the body without losing out on the pleasure principle. The spa environment has been created with nature in mind; stone and wood combine with open glass walkways to maintain the spacious air element which offsets the intimacy of the treatment rooms, whilst the cooling ambience of the lower-level infinity pool and extensive wet spa proves the perfect juxtaposition in holistic design. Here, equilibrium is the natural order in every sense.
