4. Body & Mind Relaxation Center
As the name suggests, you can expect to feel completely rested after a long session at Body & Mind Relaxation Center in Cluster O, where therapists go the extra mile to ease those knots and work your pressure points. A long-running massage centre in JLT, Body & Mind is known for its signature massages delivered by trained Thai therapists. The treatments are great to ease knotted muscles after long business trips, vacations or even everyday work tension. I enjoy a Thai massage with medium pressure, so I always make sure to tell my therapist this before she begins. You can do the same and enjoy a soothing experience at this signature massage centre in JLT Dubai.
5. Jiva Spa – Taj Jumeirah Lake Towers
Tucked away in the luxurious Taj Jumeirah Lake Towers, Jiva Spa offers a range of holistic treatments using therapeutic Indian herbs and ancient techniques. You can choose from invigorating treatments or gentle massages with rich essential oils. Skilled therapists use gentle strokes to ease knots and muscle tensions. You can browse the spa menu and choose a treatment that suits your needs best. My favourite is the Vishrama, which uses a hot compress with therapeutic Indian herbs. It really works wonders on tired and sore muscles. If you fancy a bit of over-indulgence, this is a must-try massage centre in JLT Dubai!
Many of the above spas offer seasonal JLT massage deals and ongoing promotions, so do check in advance before you book a session. As a self-confessed ‘spa-aholic’, I can’t recommend these top five massages centres in JLT for improved health and wellness in 2023. Until next time!
