Spa tips: Asian experiance

“Spa Enthusiast” magazine offers these tips for making the most of your spa visit:- Try to come at off-peak hours. Your spa experience may be more relaxing and leisurely when you’re there at a less crowded time.
- Explore the possibilities. Ask for a full description of any treatment that sounds intriguing. Be open to experimentation. That’s how you’ll find new treatments to enjoy.
- Get advice regarding scheduling. If you plan on having more than one treatment, ask if the spa has recommendations regarding the order in which you receive them. Choosing the right sequence may enhance your pleasure. Some facials are more suitable before a body treatment, and some are more appropriate afterward. Many spas will have packages that give you the treatments in the most appropriate order.
- Share your personal health history. The spa can help you plan accordingly. If you have conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or lupus, you should get your doctor’s okay for any treatment you’d like to try. People with high blood pressure or a heart condition may want to avoid body wraps or any treatment that involves heat or detoxification. Those with varicose veins may want to avoid heat treatments to those areas, and people with iodine allergies should avoid marine products such as seaweed. Pregnant women should avoid essential oils and anything that could raise body temperature, such as body wraps, saunas/steambaths and Jacuzzis.
- Mention any prescription drugs you are using in order to avoid any services or products that might irritate your skin or otherwise be harmful.
- Anticipate how the treatment will fit into your other plans. For example, if you’re having a facial treatment that may leave your skin temporarily irritated or blotchy, you may not want to go to a romantic dinner afterward.
- Allow enough time for your visit. Plan to spend a least 15 minutes sipping a beverage, relaxing, and chatting or enjoying some solitude. And try not to rush yourself at the end of your visit. This way you won’t have to be concerned if your visit takes a little longer than you anticipated, and you’ll prolong the pleasure of relaxation.

Lamongrass House

Some years ago while on holiday in Thailand, Bobby Duchowny visited an organic farm in Petchaboon province and became interested in the natural healing properties of Thai herbs and spices.
“Bobby Duchowny studied aromatherapy - a healing art that promotes massage, when combined with specific herb and spice oils, as a method to reduce stress, boost energy and heal certain physical ailments - at the American Aromatherapy Association.
“Some years ago while on holiday in Thailand, he visited an organic farm in Petchaboon province and became interested in the natural healing properties of Thai herbs and spices.
“I was particularly attracted to lemon grass as it was used in many popular Thai foods, as a medicine for stomach disorders and even as a repellent for mosquitoes,” he recalls.
Bobby used lemon grass as his signature herb to create a line of essential oils, face and body creams, shower gels and bath crystals, which he and his wife Palita sold at Bangkok’s world-famous Weekend Market.“Our advantage is that we produce the freshest spa products and our stock is never kept longer than three months; using fresh spa products is like eating fresh food rather than processed food.”
“Based on his years experiences at some of the top spas in Southeast Asia, Bobby has developed a full line of healthy skin care products. For example, his hydrating face and body creams have 25 per cent aloe vera, white orchid and cucumber extracts. And he’s developed a revitalizing mineral muscle soak made from Andaman sea salt crystals, blended with white orchid and chamomile extracts, to help draw out impurities and soothe and revive tense muscles.
“People are sensitive to different scents at different times of day. It’s a good idea to get a variety of essential oils and experiment with what smells and feels good,” he says. “Our aromatherapy massage and body oils can be either uplifting or calming to the spirit. They’re carefully balanced hand blended oils created by adding fragrant pure essential oils to nourishing, vitamin E enriched, sweet almond and jojoba base oils.
“Other therapies include a Thai tanaka and seaweed face mask used for centuries in Asia as a rejuvenator for skin damaged by the sun. But the Lemongrass House foundation is built on the fragrant, highly concentrated essential oils that are volatile extracts of flowers, leaves, spices, fruits, woods and roots, each with its own benefits to the body and mind.
“Lemongrass House on Phuket is located across from Surin Beach. Here Bobby and Palita offer their full range of spa products at modest prices, making perfect gifts for friends and family who can enjoy the aromatic scents of Asia in the privacy of their homes - no matter where in the world they live.
