  • Urban Retreat Spa: Best Aromatherapy Massage Ever!

    6.30.2012

    Urban Retreat Spa, 1 Mont Kiara

    hidden gem in the concrete jungle

    I visited Urban Retreat Spa once years back at The Curve, for their foot massage. Back then they only have one outlet. Now they opened up another one at 1 Mont Kiara shopping mall, which is conveniently located in Mont Kiara (opposite Plaza Mont Kiara). I needed a massage badly, my migraines were killing me and my body screams for relaxation. Stress from a recent work related issue was on my shoulder, I needed to get rid off it.

    "Urban Retreat Spa provides a comforting, yet stimulating, atmosphere in which customers are able to relax both their body and mind, reconnecting their daily lives to their true purpose through massage" - Urban Retreat Spa

    I decided to try their signature Hot Oil Aromatherapy Massage 60mins | RM97 and Aromatic Facial Rituals - Decleor Aromassage Facial 60mins | RM169.00 (50% OFF with any body massage). The facial was something new to me, I have never tried a massage facial before. Yeah I know facials incorporate massages for lymphatic drainage / lifting, but a facial that's totally focused on massaging your face for relaxation is something I am not able to resist. It reminded me of Vila Manja's face spa (using essential oil of a special nut, to massage the facial points), I wonder how will this one fare?

    I booked an appointment for 6pm, expecting this to be like a normal massage outlet. Upon arrival I was greeted by Cally, the manager. She let me take photos of the place, I manage to snap a few photos showing the serene urban like atmosphere, where one can have a quick escape from the stresses of life and work. 

    waiting lounge, where I drank ginger tea 
    (scent of burning lemon grass oil relaxes me)

    small spa place with a unique setting

    the beautiful foot bath
    (before start of any main treatment)

    after foot bath, I walked inside n this is what I see
    (the foot massage area is so beautiful)

    Back to the waiting area, I sat down and had to choose a massage oil for my body massage session. There's 3 types of aromatherapy massage oils to choose from. Naturally I will go for lemon grass (my favorite scent) for stimulating blood circulation and relieving water retention. My first time knowing that lemon grass is also used for firming and tightening of the skin besides the relaxing scent.

    My Aromatherapy Massage Experience:

    As I was changing in my room, I realize there's no door to lock for privacy but there's string door curtains as a barrier alternative. I wonder if there was doors for couple rooms here (if they have). I requested my masseuse, Eve to dim down the lights.  I lay face down and wonder if I should let Eve know how I like to be massage (pressure). On second though, maybe I'll let her judge? Sometimes I like to test how good a masseuse is this way.

    I got comfortable and Eve started to rub the therapeutic lemon grass massage oil on my back. It was super nice having the sensation of warm oil on my back. With gentle long strokes, Eve started a rhythm that was almost poetic. I was falling in love with her. Her pressure was soft and yet firm, caressing and easing my muscles. Using acupressure, she gently releases tension on tight areas and joints. I was really enjoying my massage with her and regretted not going for the 90minutes session instead. I dozed into a state of deep relaxation but not sleep. How could I? I wanted to savor every waking moment of this experience. This was arguably the best massage I have experience this year, and second best after my spa experience at Spa Village, Pangkor Laut (YTL). I am so coming back.

    After 30mins Eve asked me to turn around and she places a pillow under my head. Using the towel under my head, she covers my eyes with each side and continue the massage. This time, I fell asleep.

    My Decleor Aromassage Facial Experience

    Once Eve was done, Catherine the beautician took over and started my Aromatic Facial Ritual using Decleor products (famed for essential oils in their skincare). Like all facial, the common steps were cleansing, exfoliating, extraction (I opt this out, I don't believe in extraction) and using mask. Suitable for all skin types, theAromassage facial is a blissful facial with plenty of face massage to relax and replenish our energy. It's great to relieve headache and have your face pamper and lifted to its youth. I really enjoyed this, it was a never ending pampering session for me from head to toe. I could feel my wrinkles melt away with each knead and movement from Catherine (I'm so drama!). The facial massage is good for lymphatic drainage, draining toxins out of your system and giving you that waking shine again.

    Catherine explained to me that they believe that when a body is released of pressure and stress, it goes into a state of relaxation. The face is then able to effectively absorb the goodness of the facial products used. Although it was a basic facial, what made it so special are the therapeutic massages on the face with essential oil, every facial step was massage focus. I was in bliss of having my face kneaded away for an hour wishing it would never stop


    a happy kitty out from spa

    Two hours passed and I almost went into depression knowing my experience is coming to an end (drama again). Seriously I didn't know this place was so good and it's nearby my condo! Definitely a must go, considering so many promotions they have in house now. There's also packages where you get 30% more value. Sipping my tea, I studied the promotions available. What caught my eye was the member package of RM36X (don't remember the exact price), valid until 31st Dec, 2012. The member package includes a 10% off body massage discount, 2 sessions of Aromatherapy Massage 90mins and 2 sessions of Foot Massage 45mins. The total worth amounts to nearly RM400.

    21. Am from England, Oxford,UK ...HIV has been ongoing in my family for long..I lost both parents to HIV/AIDS. As we all know medically, there is no solution or cure for HIV and the cost for Medication is very expensive. Someone introduced me to a man (Native Medical Practitioner) in Africa called Dr Ogudugu. I showed him all my Tests and Results and I told him that i have already been diagnosed of HIV and have spent thousands of dollars on medication. I said I will like to try him cause someone introduced me to him. He asked me sorts of questions and I answered him correctly. To cut the story short, He gave me some medicinal soaps and some herbs(have forgot the name he called them) and he thought me how am going to use them all. At first I was skeptical but I just gave it a try. I was on his Medication for 2 weeks and I used all the soaps and herbs according to his prescription. That he will finish the rest himself. And I called him 3 days after, I arrived and I told him what is the next thing he said, he has been expecting my call. He told me to visit my doctor for another test. Honestly speaking, i never believe all he was saying until after the test when my doctor mention the statement that am HIV negative and the doctor started asking me how do I do it....Am telling this story in case anyone may need this man’s help. you can contact him directly on this email: greatogudugu@gmail.com
