my incredddible candle massage at the Relaxation Den

Last week, the ridiculously lovely people at The Relaxation Den on Ecclesall Road, Sheffield invited me for a Candle Massage* at their salon. Put it this way, as I was walking away from the salon, I was so relaxed and in such a daze I walked straight into a lamp post. No, it doesn't just happen in the movies.

I'll be honest, I was really quite nervous before - I didn't really know what to expect as it was my first ever massage, and the idea of having candle wax poured on my back was very daunting, but I couldn't be more pleasantly surprised!
I instantly relaxed as soon as I got there as the first thing you notice is the gorgeous scent of vanilla and lavender and the music they play incredibly fitting - I don't know how the salon assistants manage to stay awake in there. The interior is really modern and clean with comfy sofas across from the Dermalogica stand.

I was greeted by the absolutely gorgeous Lauren who told me to make myself comfortable and fill in the required form whilst she got me a glass of water before taking me through to the room. Oooohh lordy the room was insanely relaxing and romantic, it had an incredible atmosphere, filled with Lavender and Guava scented candles and incense, the lights were never switched on, and voices were kept to a low, with the same familiar music playing, which really set the mood to the room.
Lauren kept reminding me that this was MY room, no one else will be here and not to do anything I wasn't comfortable with. She left the room to let me undress and get myself comfortable on the massage bed and I was pretty much on my way to falling asleep. Before I knew it she'd returned and was telling me all about the massage.

To my relief, she didn't use anything like a Yankee candle, but used a candle packed with essential oils that are incredibly beneficial to the skin. It was drizzled along my spine which felt absolutely divine. It didn't sting at all, just felt like I was stepping into a warm shower, then she got to work! With a mixture of heavy handed, yet gentle pressure, and a really light touch, I had never been so relaxed in my life. The time went faaarrr too quick for my liking, yet it took around 30 minutes.
At the end, she left the room and told me to stay where I was, soak up the atmosphere, take in the music and come back round whilst she got me a drink of "Green Magic", a small drink that is packed full of your five a day, which she'd mixed with Blackcurrant so that it tasted a little more pleasant, before leaving me again to spend as much time as I needed to get up, dressed and drink the substitute (which didn't taste as bad as I imagined, and that's coming from a very fussy person!) and meet her in Reception. We had a chat all about it and I asked her a few questions about the place which she was more than happy to answer.

The Relaxation Den has been open around two years, and really sets the bar for other salons on Ecclesall Road, and perhaps even Sheffield, in my opinion! They do an amazing amount of treatments from Massages to Facials, Manicures to Waxing, Spa Days to Make Up, you are more than likely going to find something you're looking for, and with the Candle Massage coming in at £20, they are very reasonably priced considering the amazing customer service! Please check out their website, blog and Twitter for regular updates of competitions and shop antics!

Don't forget, my giveaway is still running! You can win yourself some Trilogy Oil, Essie, S&G and much more!

  9. Candles can really set the relaxing mood for a great weekend. For some reason, I can't relax without candles. I don't know, there's something about low light and the flickering, dancing flames of candles that just make life perfect. If you've ever seen a crazy cat lady, I'm that, but with candles.
