Spa Review: Deep Tissue Massage @ Como Shambhala Urban Retreat Perth.

Stepping into my first ever treatment at the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape in Perth, I took a deep breath – I had been dreaming of this moment for some time now. Located inside of the beautiful Como The Treasury building, the spa is tucked away behind the main reception area, just past the beautiful arched hallways.

Browsing through the deluxe spa treatment menu, I decided to opt for the Deep Tissue Massage as I’ve been hitting the gym hard in the last month and my neck has been stiff and joints aching… the things we do for fitness!

The description on the menu sounded perfect – ‘a prolonged state of reduced muscular tension’ and I knew it was going to do just the trick for my body.

Walking through from the stunning reception area which was kitted out with luxe Sodashi products – I immediately forgot where I was. Right smack bang in the middle of the Perth CBD? It felt like I could have been overseas in an exotic location. Marie, my masseuse, escorted me to the Balinese style treatment room, and from the moment I sat down on the lounge I was transported to a state of happiness. Marie kindly asked me which areas of my body I wanted to focus on and she left me to get changed before returning.

Each movement of the massage was purposeful and soothing. Marie was very mindful to ask me if the pressure was ok. First, focusing on the area that I needed most, my neck and upper back, then from my toes to my head, it felt amazing. I felt amazing. Finishing with a head massage and hot towels on my neck and toes, I couldn’t have asked for more. The 75 minutes always goes so quickly but I try to revel in every moment, and I did.

I decided to use the facilities to wash my hair afterwards, so I jumped into the warm rain shower in the treatment room. I felt calm and I was in a state of total bliss.

Waiting for me outside was a hot cup of home-made ginger, lime and honey tea and a beautiful signature Como Shambhala cookie (the recipe is available in the cookbook pictured above!). Gluten free and coated in honey, with nuts and seeds. Energy for my next adventure of the day!

I opted for the valet parking, which was very convenient for me on an unusually rainy Perth morning in the midst of summer. The staff are highly attentive and will literally have your car brought up to you at the front door once you have said your goodbyes.

If you’re thinking of a treat for yourself, I highly recommend going to the Como Shambhala for a very nurturing and unique spa experience.

The nitty gritty:

♥ 75 minute Deep Tissue Massage at Como Shambhala will cost you $165

♥ Valet Parking is free on Saturday and Sunday & only $30 for 4 hours on weekdays. Make the most of the valet for a weekend treatment & book in early!

♥ There are breakfast and lunch options at Post or Petition if you are feeling peckish before or after your treatment.
