A Little ‘Me’ Time For You!


Ah yes, the planned romantic gesture from your other half – rose petals, scented candles, some aromatic oils and Barry White lilting gently in the background. Then comes the most ham-fisted, bone-crunching, oafish and downright clumsy excuse for a massage you’ve ever, ever had. But simmer down, because there’s no need to plot your revenge just yet. We’ve devised a handy guide to the best places where you can really indulge in a little me-time and untie a few of those knots along the way. One of them could be the perfect way to make it up to you… 

Aromatherapy Back & Foot Massage, Newcastle
Which would you love more – a foot massage or a back massage? If your answer is, ‘Why can’t I have both?’ then you, my dear, are our kind of gal. Head down to Essential Thyme Complementary Therapies over in Newcastle, and you can get yourself a 90-minute experience that involves both a back massage and a Thai foot massage. Using a blend of soothing aromatic oils, the whole treatment will be tailor-made just for you. Truly delightful, we’re sure you’ll agree.

1-Hour Full Body Sports Massage, Liverpool
Sporty type? Ha, imagine, right! Seriously though, if you do happen to be the athletic sort, there’s a great way to combat those aching joints, tennis elbows and other sportsball-related problems. Just head to Sports Therapy by Meg Forresthill at Formby Health Rooms and get ready for a whole hour of blissful indulgence! The treatment aims to tackle a variety of joint, muscular and postural problems across your whole body, ideal whether you’re into real marathons or just the ones that involve a Netflix subscription and a tub of Ben & Jerry’s…

2-Hour Pamper Package, Nottingham
Why stop at just a massage? If you head to Reflective Beauty in Nottingham you can be treated to a two-hour pamper package, which not only includes a back, neck and shoulder massage but also a Kaeso facial and an express manicure and pedicure! So if simply feeling fabulous isn’t enough, you can also make sure you get a look to match your talons right down to your tootsies.

1-Hour Massage and 1-Day Spa Pass, London
Of course, if you fancy making a bit of a day of it, why not step it up a gear and give yourself a bit of a workout, too? Based in the super-chic LA Fitness, North London Massage Therapy are offering you the chance to enjoy some rather Hollywood treatment. With a one-hour deep tissue or sports massage (your choice, darling) along with a full day spa pass, you can relax and unwind before hitting the pool, steam room and gym! Don’t worry, we won’t judge you if you spend a little bit more time in the sauna than you do in the gym…

Luxury Manor House, Dinner & Spa for 2
While we’re taking your bliss to the next level, why not check out Rowhill Grange Hotel in Kent? Nestled in the idyllic Kent countryside, this 18th century manor house is just the place to indulge and let go for a little while.

With a range of treatments on offer including not only massages but facials and manicures, there’s bound to be something for everyone.

Bath & Breakfast with Afternoon Tea or Spa for 2
Oh yeah, now we’re talking, baby! Located in the gorgeous historic Roman city of Bath, Pratt’s Hotel is a perfect setting to transform your moment of indulgence into a full-blown escape to paradise! Nestled in the heart of beautiful Bath, you can either opt for some afternoon tea to go with your break or you can upgrade to include some tickets to the Thermae Bath Spa. There, you can unwind in the mineral-rich waters just as the Romans did over 2000 years ago! You know when they say, ‘do as the Romans do’? Well, now would be a pretty good time to follow that old adage…
