You’ll never want an ordinary massage again.
Do you want to copy Gywenth Paltrow then try the ancient technique of cupping —90 minutes of cupping, kneading, and acupressure with warmed Himalayan herbal poultices ensure that encourage a deep state of tranquility. Who doesn’t like their head rubbed? Oils are massaged into the scalp relaxing you completely.

Enjoy 30 minutes of pure bliss. First, enjoy a dry brushing, next enjoy a soak in mineral rich bath and then enjoy a massage to complete this treatment.

They offer the traditional spa treatments. The Peninsula Spa was the first hotel to offer gem therapy. The oils contain ruby, emerald, sapphire, or diamonds. Yes, you read, that well, you can bathe in diamonds. Maybe diamonds aren’t just meant to look good. The gem’s oils are rubbed all over the body and evoke a really good healing feeling.
