    If  you go just by the facade and signage, the newly-opened spa, Sukiru might seem rather nondescript. Cramped even, seeing as it is tucked away on the top floor of a busy commercial building on Vittal Mallya Road. But once you make your way there, you will discover a surprisingly spacious, tranquil space in soothing blue-green tones with soft mood lighting. There are several treatment rooms, reassuringly pristine and enough smiling, efficient male and female therapists to handle your treatments. The USP of Sukiru is clearly explained by owner Janaki Masturlal. “We combine reflexology and all its scientific benefits with spa pampering. Stimulation of reflex points in the body through finger pressure promotes health in organs and glands via the body’s energetic pathways.” The spa menu here covers facials, different kinds of massages from head to toe as well as mani-pedis.
    Checking it out
    1We opted for a 60-minute foot reflexology session, scheduled in a softly lit room with a comfy massage bed. After a brisk foot rub down, the therapist uses a combination of balms and oils to knead your feet into relaxation. A wooden reflexology stick is used for the more scientific part of the massage. While the first few minutes seem like your usual post-pedicure massage, soon the therapist gets really serious. You will feel the difference and drift into a state of total bliss. Reflexology is essentially acupressure with deft use of the hand. Turning knuckles, rotating fists and fingertips on the entire length of the feet is key to the one-hour session. Stretched and wrapped in a warm towel, fight the inclination to go for a long nap.
    Facials follow the June Jacobs ritual, enhancing moisture retention. Since the products are customised, results are easy to spot with the skin feeling smoother and firmer. The pedicures are handled professionally with no nicks and fumbles to mar the experience.
