Zen Lifestyle

I'd like to tell you all about the wondrous oasis that is Zen Lifestyle, nestled on the corner of Teviot Place in Edinburgh's old town. On Sunday I was invited along to the award winning salon, skin clinic and day spa for a hot stone massage. Although I've been lucky enough to have visited two very luxurious spas in the past (Blythswood and Cameron House), I've never actually had a massage.

Fiona and her team at Zen made me feel really at ease. After taking my coat (and dripping brolly - it was POURING outside) I was ushered downstairs to the waiting area  - big comfy sofa and the choice of cucumber infused water or peppermint tea. As I have a mild fear of needing the loo at inopportune moments, I declined on this occasion.

Before I could get too comfy, my therapist, Jenny, appeared and led me to the treatment room. A tub of hot stones, a good squirt of the most amazing smelling Elemis oils and an hour later, I honestly thought I wasn't going to be able to lift my arms off the bed - I was so relaxed!

In a state of bliss in the posh loo - I decided to drink a glass of cucumber water afterall!

If you're looking for a wee pampering session for yourself or someone else, take a peek at all the fantastic treatments they have on offer including celebrity must have, HD Brows, Shellac manicures, and some good old microdermabrasion.  My only question is:

When are you opening a salon in Glasgow??


  1. Wow, love that photo of you, you look lovely! Loving your cardigan. Sounds like such a relaxing time, I've never had a massage but I'm feeling tempted, I could do with some 'can't lift your arms off the bed' style relaxation right about now!

  2. Aahh, nothing like a proper nice massage and a good spa visit! Having trained as a physio I learned massage, and so often I'm disappointed when I get one - but this sounds like they really knew what they were doing.

  3. oh my! what a fancy place!:)

  4. oooh, lovely... though I think I may have been asleep on the bed in quick time mind, looks so blissful
