The John Masters Organic Luxury Facial

Therapy's sumptuous, candlelit treatment rooms are instantly relaxing, and once you're cosy and comfortable under warm towels, a therapist commences a welcome ritual of light touches and strategically applied pressure. The clever use of hot stones elevates this facial from pleasant to divine. Warm, weighty stones are placed on the belly before a triple facial cleanse using the delicious John Masters range eases out impurities. The therapist then kneads out any tension with a neck, shoulder and arm massage before massaging the face with hot stones dipped in oil. A customised organic mask is applied - in my case, rose products soothed and balanced my combination skin - and finally, more hot stones are placed just atop your shoulders and in each hand, flooding the body with warmth. Eventually, I emerged relaxed, refreshed and literally smelling of roses!
