Spa Bulle de Plaisir – a real bubble of pleasure
I just had the chance to try an amazing Spa in Paris: le Bulle de Plaisir which is exactly as the name indicates a “bubble of pleasure” out of time, where you can forget about the busy everyday life! I’ll tell you all about it here..
The bulle de plaisir is a real cocoon. It is situated in the centre of Paris in the fashionable Marais area not far from the metro st Paul. Well hidden like real treasures often are…
What I really loved about this place is that all their treatments are 100% tailor made to suit your needs…and in the rituel you choose your own combination of what you want to do (fx 30 minutes hammam, 30 minutes facecare and 30 minutes massage)..
Laura who was going to do my massage accompanied me into the cabin..a warm and cozy place where I felt extremely comfortable.
I was feeling a little tired and stressed out so I really appreciated this personalized care.
Laura started the massage by placing hot stones on my back to make the muscles relax..then she started performing my massage with long sliding hand stretches, like brush strokes over a painting .. a technique I had never tried before but which was fantastic and extremely effective.
I lay there, wrapped in a warm blanket while she washed my feet with a warm cloth before massaging them..It was fabulous..I completely forgot about time and place..and then she finished wity an unforgettable scalp massage..it was sooooo nice and relaxing. I felt all new again..
She started by cleaning my skin with a makeup remover and lotion from the brand Payot…
Then she continued with a seedless scrub to avoid disturbing my sensitive skin too much ..
..followed by an oil scrub and mask … and finishing with a moisturizer with shea butter.
After my body and face care, I was guided to the relaxing area where I was kindly offered a tea and some delicacies, well installed in a chaise longue! It was perfect, really.
