When we arrived at Lush Spa Birmingham, we were greeted by ‘Victoria’ – A lovely lady from Lush. She had our names on a little chalkboard with the name of our treatment on also. It was lovely to be welcomed with such love and happiness, and made the treatment start from the moment we stepped through the shop doors.
We were taken into the spa by our lovely hosts who were doing each of our treatments and were sat at the table ready to have a small consultation before leading us into the beautiful spa room. Part of our pre treatment consultation was us chatting about scents we like and what we want individually out of the process. We were given forms to sign whilst enjoying a fresh detox water and listening to the beautiful bird soundtrack in the background.
We were given a little board of product options to choose from and then were given a little demo of the bath bomb and the spa exclusive green jelly like product.
Once we had gotten to know our hosts and had decided on our products and hopes for the process, we were led into this beautiful, calming room. It was pure bliss!
They allowed us to take a seat whilst they prepared these wonderful, misty baths that filled the room with a colourful, scented fog. It really did set the scene and created the most beautiful atmosphere in every way. It was so stimulating for our senses, the scents were delightful, the noise took me back to the ocean and the visuals were stunning.
Once the scene was set, we were told to remove our clothing, lay on the beds and ring the bell once we were done to notify our hosts to come back in and begin the treatment. It was nerve racking, exciting and such a treat. My mum and I have never done anything like this, especially together, so it was a wonderfully unique experience.
We were told to make sure we let them know if the pain was too intense and they gave us a scale to let them know the pressure to perform on us both individually. Once the treatment began, they put on this beautiful seaside music created by there in house band; It was so wonderful and set the scene mentally for us!
The massage was so well done and felt like a dance, perfectly synced with the music.
It was 30 minutes long and I cherished every second of it. I felt Andy (my masseuse) really focusing on the parts of my back that held so much tension. It was incredible that he felt the places that needed the most attention in order to release that tension and detox my body, mind and soul.
The products were perfect and I loved the warm scents my choice held. I had the Wiccy magic muscles bar and It held scents of cinnamon and peppermint, giving a gorgeous warming yet refreshing feel. One of my favourite parts of the treatment was when Andy used the spa exclusive jelly, which he applied very cold onto my shoulder blades after he’d applied the intense pressure when releasing the tension.
I have to admit, it was incredible, worth the money and wonderful for a duo treatment with a loved one, whilst keeping it personal too. I have a ticklish back, so at first my giggles were coming out but I got used to the feeling and began to really relax and enjoy the experience.
It really is in the name, It’s tailor made. It’s unique to the individual and focuses on exactly what you want, like and need.

After the treatment we sat in the lobby with a lovely cup of tea, biscuits and were coming down from the experience calmly. Treatments can have different impacts on each person, so some may be emotional, some may feel a little light headed and some may need a while to come out of the treatment mode.
We had a post treatment one to one with our spa specialists and discussed the experience and the state of our bodies, with where the most tension resides. We were told about the experience on their end for the treatment and then chatted about some future treatments they offer.
Once we left the Spa, we were met by our previous lovely lady ‘Victoria’ for a little shop around the store! She was wonderful and so were the other ladies I was chatting to before and after treatment.
Overall as always at Lush Spa, this day was perfection!
Below are some pictures from the day overall.
