Some people (dudes) need only a six-pack and a football game to unwind.
For the more tightly woven (you, us), there’s Antara. The month-old, holistic day spa is open in The Chelsea Club (the flashy gym inside Stamford Bridge stadium). And you don’t have to be a member.
Indulgent Indian, Far Eastern and European treatments include fruit facial peels (banana, papaya, pineapple), Reiki, Thai massage and ear candling.
Our favourites? A draw between a 90-minute steam-and-scrub in the Moroccan hammam and the shiatsu therapist who diagnoses your Chinese body type to determine weaker organs and help you attain balance. Also essential: oil dripped onto your third eye during ayurvedic therapy — it calms the mind and treats greying hair (yes, really).
Men are welcome, though they should be advised: scouring the grounds for Chelsea players is not on the menu.
Antara Spa at The Chelsea Club, Stamford Bridge, Fulham Road, SW6 1HS (020 7915 2200 or thechelseaclub.com). DailyCandy readers get 20 per cent off all treatments more than £50 until November 30.
