 I’m in Recovery mode
Liz Campbell enjoys some safety-first pampering at Weavers’ House Spa in Lavenham
Weavers’ House Spa is back and what a relief to staff and for those among us who like a little pampering and reinvigoration. It has been sorely missed.
At present, due to restrictions, the spa is able to offer eight treatments on their new Re-Invention Menu and they have just been given the green light to offer facials.
I was booked in for The Recovery which is proving to be very popular and really delivers on its name. Things have changed a little since my last visit so the medical questionnaire is filled in and returned to the spa prior to your visit. You are asked to arrive at your allocated time where you are greeted at the door. Not for Weavers’ the bottle of hand sanitiser on your arrival, instead a very enjoyable handwashing ritual followed by a quick shower and then wrapping
yourself in the cosy robe. The changing rooms are spotless and cleaned after every client, as are the treatment rooms.
For hygiene purposes, the chilled smoothie prior to your treatment and the post treatment tea are served in disposable biodegradable cups, you are required to wear a mask at all times unless you are laid on your front, in which case it can be removed, and the therapists have visors and masks.
Recovery is the treatment, but maybe the word Reassurance should be added as no stone is left unturned when considering the safety of the client and therapists.
It’s a 90-minute soothing aromatherapeutic treat which is perfect if you are looking for some TLC. My therapist was Chloe and her knowledge and professionalism ensured I felt pampered and looked after for the duration. The treatment begins with palm pressures over the back of your body, stretching out muscles and gently working on pressure points to relieve stress. Then, my favourite part, a soothing foot massage using a cooling and revitalising gel to ease tension. Chloe then worked on my legs, back, neck and shoulders ironing out the inevitable knots. Sitting at a desk all day, I hold a lot of tension in my shoulders and Chloe worked on this troublesome area, easing the tightness. The spa time concludes with a tranquil scalp massage which was bliss.
After the treatment, it took some effort to remove myself from the bed, I felt very relaxed and could quite easily have snuggled down for a little sleep. Following my post treatment tea, I reluctantly headed back to the changing room.
The spa have introduced a one-way system to ensure clients don’t bump into each other and a bookable 30- minute timeframe to use the outdoor vitality pool. For the time being, the steam room and sauna remain closed.
