If you’re looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, a session or three at The Dorchester Spa wouldn’t go amiss. The spa reopened in May 2009 after a six month £3.2million expansion and renovation. Exuding 1930s Art Deco glamour combined with a contemporary edge, The Dorchester Spa features 9 sumptuous treatment rooms, a deep relaxation room, manicure and pedicure suite and award winning hair salon by Royston Blythe.

Dorchester SpaNot content with catering for the mothers only, the Dorchester will be celebrating Father’s Day with a special offer for June 2010. Throughout the month, Fathers booked for a ‘Deep Tissue Massage’ treatment by Aromatherapy Associates will receive a complimentary Aromatherapy Associates ‘De-Stress Muscle Gel’ to continue the treatment benefits at home.

The ‘Deep Tissue Massage’ is a deeply restorative body treatment for the sports enthusiast or overworked father to help relieve tight, stressed limbs by dispersing the build-up of lactic acid. Swedish and cross muscle-fibre massage, stretching and draining techniques, are used in combination with highly therapeutic essential oil blends for deeper, longer lasting results. The Aromatherapy Associates ‘De-Stress Muscle Gel’ used during treatment contains essential oils of black pepper, rosemary and ginger for their stimulating benefits to the circulation providing a warm, soothing effect to help relieve muscular aches and tension.

The Dorchester Spa’s Aromatherapy Associates ‘Deep Tissue Massage’ is available as a 55 minute treatment priced at £110, or as a 1 hour 25 minute treatment priced at £155. Gift certificates can be purchased online or direct with The Dorchester Spa reception; the perfect Father’s Day gift, and more enjoyable than just another tie.
