I didn't have to wait long for my therapist to show me to the treatment room. My treatment started with an in depth analysis of whether I wanted to de-stress or detox (I voted de-stress), and then chose some oils based on what I liked the smell of. I chose a lovely blend of sandalwood and frankincense. My therapist even blended some of the oil into a lovely warm steam bath to put under the bed for me to breathe in.
On the treatment bed I was given a heavenly deep back and leg massage, before I flipped over for a front leg massage, arm massage, a mini facial and a head massage. I'm usually quite picky when it comes to head massages, as I often find that therapists just pull my hair rather then massage my scalp, but my therapist was a true pro and used an ESPA Pink Hair and Scalp Mud made from watercress, red clay and apricot oil, to massage deeply into my scalp.
All in all, my whole treatment was divine in every sense of the word. I was so relaxed a mere 10 minutes into the treatment that I was one step away from sleep. I found my therapist to be really skilled, professional and above all friendly. After my treatment she showed me through to the relaxation room and chatted to me about the products she used before leaving me to have a well deserved nap. The relaxation room was blissfully dark and cosy, with warm blankets, water, tea and magazines. I thought I'd just stay for 10 minutes or so but ended up staying for an hour and half. It was the best 'me time' I've had in months.
One Spa well and truly lives up to its name as one of the best spas in Edinburgh. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there, and can't wait to go back to experience it all over again.
