Hong Kong Spas
Hong Kong’s spas can all start to blur into one after a while – the same treatments, the same techniques, the same products… well, not SPA by MTM. With a range of treatments blending ancient Asian techniques and philosophies with contemporary spa luxury, plus the use of custom-blended formulations from their own product line, you can be guaranteed a unique experience every time!
For my first visit to SPA by MTM, I tried their new Zen Happiness Experience, a special treatment to mark their 6th anniversary. The first step was a diagnosis of my ‘physical and spiritual needs’ – I picked out the Relax series of custom-blended essential oils, designed to target weary and stressed-out souls like myself with ingredients including lavender, catnip, red sage root and echinops (see the Chinese medicine coming into play?!).
Next, I was led down serene light corridors to my treatment room. This contains not only your massage bed, but a bath, a shower cubicle, a sofa and a wardrobe – I just wish my bedroom at home was that big! What I liked about this approach was that the room felt like it was truly mine to escape into; you change here and store your handbag and clothes in the wardrobe, meaning you don’t have to worry about bumping into other semi-nude customers or forgetting the key code for your locker. In fact, the whole of SPA by MTM is a total tranquil heaven, and to find a modern luxe spa this big at ground level in heaving cramped Causeway Bay really is quite a find indeed.
My therapist, May, gave me a brief but lovely foot bath before leaving me to have a shower, a step I found a little unnecessary (I’m very clean I assure you!) but which I got on with nonetheless. Then it was onto the good stuff – a series of different types of massage.
The first was a Hot Stone Deep Tissue Acupoint Massage. This was an utter treat – the stones were warmed just so and felt like delicious little balls of heat rolling and licking their way down my body. May used both light brush-like strokes and also more targeted pressure on key areas around my shoulder and neck to relieve and relax my aches, pains and tensions.
