As one of the leading skin and beauty clinics in the city, the Kensington MediSpa team knows a thing or two about providing TLC. They offer a range of treatments, including EMSCULPT, Strawberry Lift, HydraFacial and ELEMIS Biotech, using the latest technologies in the industry to bring you real results and also help you relax. The flexible working life – spending half the time on a laptop at the kitchen table and the other half lugging the equipment around the office – started weighing on the old back and shoulders, so we went in to soothe our aching muscles .
The spa is inside the Royal Garden Hotel, which is actually closed until 2022, so it’s not the easiest place to find – you have to take a lift to the spa from the street and it’s tucked away in an unassuming corner. However, once inside it feels like a world away from where you just got off and the staff are super welcoming and ready to help you unwind.
We did the ELEMIS Freestyle Deep Tissue massage, which is a complete body treatment. We asked the therapist for firm pressure and we certainly got it, receiving careful care from slapping the soles of the feet to massaging the head and all the other parts in between. It was just the right blend of relaxation, aided by the ELEMIS aromatic oils, and functional, solving all the knots, so we felt beautiful and relaxed.
