The promise This massage will loosen muscles and improve blood circulation. The ‘modern gentleman’s spa’, located in 93-94 Avenue, Umm Suqeim, has a cool look, filled with photographs of jazz greats and imagery of musical instruments.
Step by step We’re offered a cleansing tea by the charming staff before being taken upstairs to the massage room. The treatment begins with the female therapist washing our feet. She asks if there are any areas that need attention before starting the massage. She works out our tight muscles from every angle, and before long, she’s kneading knot after knot from shoulder and back, turning it from a tight, twisted mess to a pain-free paradise. It takes a lot of work to get there but it is worth it. She then moves on to our legs, arms, neck and head, so we end the massage feeling more relaxed.
The result Bad back cured (at least until we get back in front of a monitor) and limbs relaxed, the massage at Jazz Lounge Spa is a success. There’s plenty of other treatments available, too, that we also want to check out.
Pros • It’s easy to book, easy to find, and a fuss-free experience once you’re inside.
• The masseuse takes our consultation on board and concentrates on the required areas.
• The jazz music décor is refreshingly different.
Cons • The room is a little tight for getting changed, but that’s about the only downside we can think of.
