You might have already sampled the alternative healing therapy reiki, but have your pets? Yes, it’s a departure from our normal focus on humans, but we simply couldn’t ignore the fact that the city is now home to Animal Reiki Dubai (, which claims to be able to help your beloved pets through stress, sadness, loneliness and neglect.

Back in the world of homosapien grooming, The Nail Spa ( has launched two new express facials following its recent rebrand and relaunch. The Dr Denis Gross (DDG) ‘facials in a flash’ give women who visit the salon the choice between a 30-minute alpha beta peel and a 20-minute glow.
