What Can I Expect
Indulge yourself in a spot of aromatherapy in Reading! This may be one of the business region's largest and busiest four star hotels, but as soon as you're inside the Holiday Inn just outside Wokingham, you'll feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life, with wonderful fragrances filling the air…
That's because aromatherapy uses aromatic plant oils that are absorbed by your skin. At this Reading hotel the team of therapists are experts at choosing the right combination of essential oils for you, depending on what mood you're in and what you hope to achieve following your massage or facial treatment.
In fact, there are many types of aromas and scents and often they are grouped together in relation to the effect that they can have on the body and soul. You might fancy trying an uplifting combination that uses ylang ylang, sage and a dash of rose, or prefer to sink into a deliciously calm state thanks to the chamomile, lavender and geranium mix. Others prefer their aromatherapy to energise them, in which case the Reading team could choose rosemary, or a blend of bergamot and lemon for a positive scent.
Of course, it's not just your skin that'll be getting the benefits of aromatherapy. As the wonderful smells fill the treatment room, your nose will be detecting all the goodness too. So let your senses work overtime as you feel the massaging effects on your face and breathe in the perfectly concocted blend too.
What we love about the experience here at Reading's Holiday Inn is that not only do you get the full 60-minute aromatherapy facial or massage treatment, you can plan on staying all day with plenty leisure and health facilities on offer with this four star complex. Take a dip in the pool, banish aches and pains with a sauna, work up at satisfying sweat on the rowing machines and even do a few weights - it's all up for the taking.
Uplifting, calming, decongesting, purifying or cleansing, we think an hour-long facial or body massage treatment in aromatherapy at Reading's Holiday Inn is a brilliant way to make you feel and look healthy and young. And that's a surefire way to put a smile on your face.
