New year, new you? Or has the festive period completely tired you out? Either way, we think you can justify a pamper so detoxify, purify and nourish with our guide to 5 of the best spa treatments – you’ll walk out a new person!

The May Fair Hotel

Detoxifying wrap

January’s cold and January’s grey – and that doesn’t just refer to the weather. If you need a bit of life injected back into your body then the 60 minute ESPA body wrap at The Mayfair Hotel will do the trick. Full body skin brushing and exfoliation will kickstart your circulation, followed by a Marine Algae body wrap to purify and hydrate your skin. The wrap raises body temperature to help speed up the elimination of toxins. Twice as much reason to book in!

Hotel Café Royal

Two hours of warming the body and soul

Now that Christmas is over things seem a little more bleak. Now that it’s no longer acceptable to stay warm with a constant stream of mulled wine, we have a better (and healthier way) to warm your body and soul. The Akasha spa at Hotel Café Royal have a Come in From the Cold package – a two hour treatment, to leave you feeling cocooned and well, less blue. Starting with the Hammam ritual of a scrub, the treatment features a focus massage that works on one area to alleviate tension and stress and finishes with a radiant facial to give you your glow back.

Brown's Hotel

Dynamic Detox

Until the end of February, you can detox at Brown’s Hotel with their Dynamic Detox three phase treatment. It starts with a 25 minute tailored physical coaching session (you’ve got to get back to the exercise at some point…sorry) followed by a 25 minute Carita CINETIC™ LIFT EXPERT body massage and then you can take away a freshly prepared detoxifying protein shake which is packed full of antioxidants and goodness, so you can say goodbye to the continuous Stilton.
