Experience North Eastern wellness principles at this new spa in South Bengaluru
If January is anything to go by, 2017 is also going to be zipping past us at battle speed! Days come and go and the weariness of each one continues to pile on till one day you decide that you have had enough. It is time to take a step back, relax and let the tension out of your muscles at the spanking new Zolal Spa in South Bengaluru.
Zolal (the royalty of the Mizo people) Spa is the coming together of Mizo ladies Josephine Zothanmawii and Rosy Lalrempuii. Having run a successful spa in Aizwal, Mizoram for over a decade, they have now brought their expertise to the city.
The techniques used here are a combination of internationally known forms, but executed in a style that is customised to your needs. We opted for the Signature Zolal Spa massage and the interesting sounding Four hands synchronised massage, which has two therapists working on you simultaneously to simulate the feel of four hands on your body. The Signature massage is a combination of Lomi Lomi, reflexology, Swedish massage and hot stone therapy. It begins as a dry massage of the arms, legs and back. This is followed by an oil massage and then taken to the next level with the use of hot stones. The addition of an oil head massage completes the blissful feeling you get from this 70 minutes of pampering. What is amazing is that the massage is more about kneading the muscles than it is about pressing on pain points. The Four hand signature massage, also of 70 minutes duration is a warm oil session with two sets of experienced hands working on your right and left sides together. Muscles are stretched and relaxed in ways that will surprise you and leave you feeling fresh and glowing.
Once done, you are treated to a fermented, fragrant tea, straight from the tea gardens of Burma and some raisins to enhance the feeling of wellbeing in the body.
