Kalyana Spa is a little slice of the Far East in Battersea. Step inside to dark wood interiors decorated with oriental flowers and stone sculptures. The spa offers three private treatment rooms, a beauty area filled with every colour of shellac imaginable and a downstairs haven with loungers, floating fabric canopies and low, soft lighting. There’s an impressive selection of treatments available, from anti-ageing facials (where vitamins and antioxidants are absorbed in the skin using soundwaves and small, painless electrical pulses) to ache alleviating massages and a range of traditional beauty services.
Body sculpting treatments that aim to contour and slim are extremely popular, as are their deep steam facials which aim to intensively cleanse, steam and exfoliate to absorb excess oil and leave the skin clear and glowing. The friendly and expert beauticians use 100% organic, Ytsara natural ingredients, which are grown on organic farms in Northern Thailand and smell just heavenly.
Relax on warm herbal cushions as the therapist uses Asian muscle kneading to alleviate every bit of tensions and tiredness in your upper body. Your body will then be treated to a tuning reflexology massage with reconditions your back, shoulders, neck and hands. Mums-to-be are also catered for and their pregnancy massages can help with sciatica, oedema, backache, indigestion, insomnia and a whole host of other pregnancy related conditions. They’re also great for minimising potential stretch marks and for aiding total relaxation.
