We pampered ourselves with a spa session back at Be Urban Wellness this Valentine’s Day. The Dark Chocolate Indulgence Treatment which includes bath, scrub, wrap and massage session for 140 minutes was absolutely amazing. It is also rated as the most delicious body treatment by Harper’s Bazaar Spa Awards 2013. We were also blown away by an unobstructed 360 degree view of KL city from its lobby.
However, do you know that apart from spa treatment, Be Urban Wellness takes pride in their total wellness program. We had the opportunity to try out some of the free analysis provided by their consultants. They have some of the best machines with cutting-edge technology when it comes to body composition analysis. It tells you almost everything about your physical – fat content, muscle mass, bone mass, BMI as well as protein or mineral percentage.
Next in the line was postural analysis. Apparently, kampungboy is having a slight hunch problem and both his arms are also tilted towards the front.
Balraj, the manager explained in details about what went wrong and what are the treatment/exercises that KampungBoy needs to go through. Apparently, a few session of massage can correct his problems. He will also need to do more back exercises to strengthen his back and of course, self awareness is very important.
Be sure to keep this document with you at all times, as it contains in depth analysis of your body.
We all know about the benefits of oxygen but do you know that one can actually breath pure oxygen in a pressurized room? Be Urban Wellness owns a few of these oxygen chambers that dramatically improves oxygen delivery to tissues throughout the body to fully rejuvenate from within. It is very ppular amongst Hollywood celebrities and sports stars. Oxygen therapy is particularly good to speed up healing (4x faster), build peak performance and beauty (an all over oxygen facial).
Another enticing treatment is the floatation tank. The 25cm of super-saturated salt solution creates an environment similar to the Dead Sea which enables the individual to float effortlessly on the surface. As the water is heated to skin temperature it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water and those that aren’t, thus creating the illusion of floating in air.
When your body is free from the forces of gravity, every single muscle in the body is allowed to relax and allows the mind to drift into the deepest state of relaxation possible. This in turn reduces the activity in the left (logical) side of the brain and increases activity in the right (creative) side. For the first time, both sides of your brain are in total harmony. A session in the tank enables us to tap into a huge, previously unavailable source of creativity, imagination, self-visualisation and problem solving.
Be Urban Wellness is a member’s centre but they do accept walk-in. Remember to call and make a reservation prior to your visit as the management will reserve a car park lot just for you.
