At birth, there is often that baby. To him gifts, smiles, tender gestures and massages. With our deformed body, relaxing a postponement nothing more than for us. It was in Paris that I tested special care young mom, and I do not regret having done so later. For up to 6 months after delivery, I do not feel would deliver the body in the hands of a masseuse for so long ... without fear of pain, but without it feeling a little ashamed of flagada stomach and buttocks soft. This is the brand new Spa at Mandarin Oriental I experienced this very exclusive time as a reward.
The Mandarin Oriental Spa
Located in the basement of the hotel rue Saint Honoré, this spa is a poetic! The patterns and colors chosen are extremely soft and fine, and I'm ecstatic to this studded stylized flowers Origami wall.
A passage, or should I say, a must stop in the big pearly sphere to reach the home. Placed in the center of the sphere, then I hear my echo almost whispered. Ok, I understand, I have put all my boundless energy in tune. And staff will help you there without any trouble, by telling you about a very delicate and asked, I would have wanted to say "idle".
A quick look at the indoor pool before tell me at the reception. Reserved for hotel guests, it is only there for your eyes. It emerges from this pool a lot of light and a lot of femininity. Its alcoves purple glass are very design and dress well that pool. But I would have preferred a little more depth, for more privacy for a relaxing time just for you (and not for the young man doing the breaststroke). Finally, it is in my dreams, because I have not actually tested the pool. Neither met the young man
The reception area is quite simple, because it is not supposed to stay there too long. I was invited to sit down to complete a comprehensive health questionnaire and leave my shoes, which are delicately placed on a tray. I regret that day of not wearing much more luxurious than my Mellow Yellow shoes this is where ever. Although the place is not at all flashy.
My masseuse comes to me and led me to the reception ... weird ...
And then I discovered that this is actually a glass sliding door that leads into a very dark hallway and opens the way to seven spa suites.
My suite Jade Spa
I had not read the description of the Spa before coming, and this is a good thing because I was pretty speechless facing so many luxury. A suite privatized for myself.
I feel I have rented for an hour a hotel room with toilet, a shower-steam room, her closet and finally his cabin. And it's the same configuration for all suites, a spa bath in addition to the three suites for couples.
The cabin is beautiful, my photo does not unfortunately reproduces well the colors amaranth, taupe and silver puisqu'éclairée at that time by candles. But this warm suits me perfectly!
Cocoon care for the New Mum
This care for the nourishing and regenerating body lasts 1:20 ET consists of three steps:
- a gentle scrub made from shower gel and olive grains is carried throughout the body,
- on the body before showering and dry, a massage is performed on the body by mixing cream, gel and oil-based essential oil of rose.
Between the v is massaged with a special healing oil.
- a towel is applied to the body to allow better absorption of active, during which time a scalp massage (with or without oil, your choice) is practiced.
This care products made with Aromatherapy Associates resembles the care that I tested during my pregnancy D orchester Spa in London. Very luxurious, and very relaxing, especially from the moment the scalp massage involved.
I would have preferred that the mixture is heated or modeling as part of the cabin is much more heated as the gel point is too invigorating and refreshing, while my desire in this care is to relax and feel the warmth. Probably because you also lost, putting your baby into the world, the constant heat that you constantly looking past winter with your hands and feet frozen. I would still say that my feet were frozen at the beginning and end of care attention with hot towel wrap. And the massage bed increased temperature allowing me to enjoy the second part of the treatment.
Under my towel and heated (!), I feel deeply relaxed me and have even wanted that time is extended by an additional 30 minutes. Alas, I hear the Tibetan timpani confirm the end of the treatment. I have no desire to get out of here, especially since it is so bad outside.
The surprise of the (top) head
Back in my private dressing room, a surprise awaits me. Mariage Frères tea and dessert made by Thierry Marx himself!
Oh la la, this sandblasted Buchette with its chestnut mousse and thin green tea is to die. I enjoyed very slowly and is so comforting! What a way to finish a treatment.
Good to know for future moms
A dedicated care is offered at Spa, named simply Mum-to-be, pregnant from their third month women.
The feature is to allow you to be massaged lying on her stomach, with a soft mattress with a huge central hole. And neither your belly or your chest is crushed. Back as the legs are worked.
The price of these young mothers and future care is 240 €. This is a very large amount in a luxurious setting, so I can imagine that this treatment can be offered to you by your family to celebrate the pregnancy or as a gift of congratulations for the birth.
Why could we not receive and be spoiled in that?
