Sweat it out
20-minute workout at Body Express
Are you struggling to fit in your after-work gym hours or your morning run? Body Express has the ideal solution for those who are short on time: a 20-minute workout that equals countless hours in the gym.
They use German electro muscle stimulation (EMS) technology, which directly targets and activates 90% of your muscles, creating contractions that are 30 percent more intense. The workout is low-impact but high-intensity so they recommend only one session a week, leaving you plenty of extra ‘me’ time.
60-minute floatation therapy at Zerog
Forget massages—zero gravity is the way to really let go. Using Epsom salt, Zerog offers the zero gravity experience through floatation therapy. With physical benefits from muscle relaxation to pain relief, to mental health perks like stress release, creative inspiration and increased energy, it's the perfect alternative therapy to help you reset.
30-minute body scrub/wrap at Let’spa
People often think of detoxing as an internal process, but your skin is one of the most important detoxifying organs. A quick body scrub or wrap from Let’spa will purify, detox and oxygenate, leaving your pores unclogged and your skin smooth and shiny. Ideal for those on a tight schedule, and right before a weekend escape.
