When I stepped into the luxurious Tattva Spa at Marriott Hyderabad, I knew that I was in for a treat. I had booked an Ayurveda Abhyanga massage, and I was excited to experience the benefits of this traditional Indian massage.
In my late 40’s and running my own publishing business, life can be hectic and stressful. Living in a joint family with my parents, I am constantly juggling between work and family responsibilities. So, I was really looking forward to this massage to help me relax and rejuvenate.
As I settled into the massage room, I was greeted by the soothing aroma of essential oils and calming music. My therapist was a trained Ayurveda practitioner who explained the benefits of Abhyanga massage, which is an ancient practice that involves using warm herbal oil to massage the entire body. The massage aims to promote overall wellness, improve blood circulation, and relieve stress and fatigue.
I was asked to lie down on the massage table, and the therapist began to massage warm herbal oil all over my body, starting with my head and working her way down to my feet. The pressure was just right, and I could feel my muscles relaxing with every stroke. The herbal oil used for the massage was customized to suit my Dosha, which is an individual’s Ayurvedic body type, and was a blend of various herbs and essential oils that nourished my skin and left it feeling soft and supple.
As the massage came to an end, I felt deeply relaxed and rejuvenated. My therapist recommended that I take a warm shower to allow the herbal oil to penetrate deeper into my skin and to complete the therapeutic experience. I followed her advice and felt a sense of calm and wellbeing wash over me.
After the massage, I spent some time exploring the city of Hyderabad. As a local, I knew just where to go to experience the vibrant culture and traditions of this historic city. I visited the iconic Charminar, a monument that is synonymous with Hyderabad and its rich history. I also stopped by the famous Laad Bazaar, where I indulged in some retail therapy, picking up some traditional jewelry and handicrafts.
Hyderabad is a city that is steeped in history and tradition, and there is no shortage of things to see and do. From its iconic landmarks to its vibrant markets, there is something for everyone here.
Overall, my experience at Tattva Spa at Marriott Hyderabad was exceptional. The Ayurveda Abhyanga massage was just what I needed to relieve stress and rejuvenate my body and mind. And the local snippets I experienced around the city made my trip to Hyderabad even more memorable. If you are ever in Hyderabad and in need of a little pampering, I highly recommend a visit to Tattva Spa.
