Last time you found yourself in a heated pool at night with a man you had just met, it ended with a pounding headache and a guilty feeling that was hard to shake.
This time will be different.
Book a Watsu session at The Aman Spa, where wet-suit-wearing certified practitioner Steve Karle guides you through gentle stretches and water dance moves combined with underwater shiatsu. The weightless floating alleviates pressure from muscles and joints and sends you into a meditative state.
One-on-one sessions take place every evening from 8 to 10 p.m., when the lights are dimmed and the pool is heated to 34 degrees. The reason? To help your heart rate and respiration levels drop, thus allowing the nervous system to rewire. (In other words, expect a good night’s sleep.)
It’s not cheap — £160 for an hour.
But we promise you won’t regret it.
Available at The Aman Spa at The Connaught, Carlos Place, W1K 2AL (020 3147 7305 or the-connaught.co.uk).
