All wrapped up: The Tagthia Amiqa treatment feeds you from outside in
If it’s good enough to put into your body, it’s good enough to go on your body. The beauty industry has embraced this concept with enthusiasm, and today you can find just about any edible in a tube or jar meant for your wash bag.
The Taj Hotels group also looked towards nature for one of its latest treatments at its Jiva spas. Called Tagthia Amiqa, the indulgent therapy is built around a list of ingredients that wouldn’t look out of place in your kitchen cupboard: dates, almonds, saffron, cactus and camel milk.
The spa is well laid out, with a steam room and sauna below, where you transition from the daily grind into a more blissful state. There’s also a serene relaxation area upstairs, where you can languish in your soft skin afterwards.
My therapist, Deepak, starts with a foot bath incorporating the invigorating fragrances wafting through the hotel, after which I’m lathered with a thick paste made of dates, almonds, saffron, cactus gel and almond oil, and wrapped up like a festive roast to absorb their healing qualities.
An intense scalp massage follows, after which it’s off to the shower to wash off the batter with camel milk, exfoliating with the course mud.
Then it’s back to the table for a relaxing massage with the brand’s inhouse blend.
The indulgent two-hour Tagthia Amiqa treatment exfoliates, moisturises and tightens the skin, and leaves you in a state of utter relaxation.
