In time for International Stress Awareness Week (1st – 5th November), reset the body and mind with the new ‘Ultimate SenSleep’ overnight spa package at Careys Manor & SenSpa. Featuring a rejuvenating 45-minute Ayurvedic Head Massage, access to SenSpa’s health club and hydrotherapy facilities, and an ultimate sleep gift box to aid a blissful night’s rest, the package aims to offer even the most stressed-out traveller a ticket to slumberland.
Nestled in the heart of the New Forest national park, Careys Manor is home to the award-winning SenSpa – a world-class Thai spa blending ancient traditions with state-of-the-art technologies, boasting spectacular hydrotherapy facilities and holistic wellness treatments.
Take advantage of the array of spa and leisure facilities that work in perfect harmony to promote deeper, longer-lasting sleep and thus reducing stress and enhancing energy levels. Start in the hydrotherapy pool to balance the body and release muscle tension, before heading to the ice room or experience showers to activate the sympathetic nervous system, facilitate blood flow to the brain and increase blood levels of beta-endorphin. This balancing of blood pressure can help reduce anxiety, headaches, fatigue, and digestive issues, in turn improving inflammation as well as quality of sleep.
Next, enjoy a soothing Ayurvedic Head Massage at the hands of SenSpa’s highly skilled therapists to clear the mind, relieve stress and aid sleep through this 5000-year-old holistic practice. As sleep disorders such as insomnia can signal an imbalance in the body’s energy flow, the massage strokes follow the flow of marma points (energy pathways) to positively manipulate energy. As well as this, massages release serotonin, a hormone that promotes feelings of well-being and happiness.
Come evening, retreat to one of Careys Manor’s sumptuous rooms for a bedtime sleep ritual with the Ultimate Sleep Gift Box. Featuring a wheat eye pillow and a range of SenSpa products such as a relaxing bath soak, body cream and tea caddy as well as a sleep ritual guide, this exclusive gift box is sure to mellow both body and mind for the dreamiest slumber.
Made using only natural ingredients, the SenSpa products are filled with organic lavender (scientifically proven to enhance sleep) with an exotic blend of bergamot, patchouli and geranium essential oils that leave skin feeling soft and nourished. As part of the bedtime ritual, guests are advised to soak in a hot bath for 90-minutes to trigger the body’s internal thermostat, with a gradual drop in body temperature known for inducing drowsiness. After savouring a SenSpa Wellness tea, the natural weighted eye pillow can be used to soothe tired eyes, block unwanted light, and deepen relaxation, with a bedtime ritual card on hand encouraging mindfulness and 4-7-8 breathing techniques to quieten the mind.
The ‘Ultimate SenSleep’ Package is priced from £547 per person and is available to book from 1st November.
