I was recently approached by the marketing team at The Four Fountains Spa for a session of therapy. I couldn’t ask for anything more at that moment of time because I was surrounded by heap load of work load. I jumped right at the opportunity and I am so glad I did…. Before I review my visit to the spa, let us know a bit about it

My Experience :
I was given a choice to book for an appointment to the outlet which was closest to my place, so I opted to go to the one located at Link Road Malad. I booked for an evening appointment and the staff was very prompt in confirming my appointment. They were also kind enough to call me and confirm the appointment date and time. The staff at the spa are very well trained and efficient. I was greeted by Sana, who manages the spa. She was kind enough to inform me the services which are classified as - De-stressing, De-Toxification, Immunity and Beauty.
I opted for beauty treatment and choosed Lightening Facial which consisted of series of steps to gently exfoliate the skin on your face and massage it to give a glow. This therapy takes about one hour.
Before the treatment started, I was asked to fill out a questionnaire - I was surprised to find that they wanted to know my medical history before starting any treatment.
The ambiance of the place was very soothing and calming. I was introduced to the therapist who led me towards the treatment room. The treatment rooms were tiny and small which got me a little claustrophobic - but then I requested the manager to let my friend accompany me into the room. They were little hesitant at the beginning but then they agreed - I was all set to start !!
The treatment room was a narrow rectangular room with an attached shower area. The therapist first instructed me to change into a disposable clothing which was offered by the spa and as soon as I was ready I was to alarm the bell so as to call the therapist back and start the session.
The treatment first started with the therapist performing a patch test of the products on my skin. The products did not cause any irritation to my skin which confirmed the products were safe to use on my skin. The entire session was very soothing and calm as the lighting of the room was dimmed down and the soothing music played in the background. The therapist was very professional and kept ensuring whether the environment of the room was comfortable enough for me.
The treatment started with the steps of cleansing, toning, massaging, scrubbing, steaming, application of mask and finally moisturising. The therapist was very efficient and skilled in massaging the skin. I especially liked the mini- leg massage session I was offered while the facial mask was working it's charm. By the end of the session I was totally refreshed by the herbal tea that was offered to me. The facial treatment was wonderful and worth every penny - the glow of the facial lasted for 3 days after the treatment. I was also offered a feedback form at the end in order to share my experience with the spa. I was also offered a small complimentary tub of cooling de- stressing gel.
