Tattva Spa Gurgaon | Spa Date with Sister

Sometime back me and my sister decided to spend some time together. We planned to shop first and later indulge in some pampering (and the best part i stay at my mom's that night).

We visited Tattva Spa at Courtyard by Marriot, Gurgaon... opsss.. I mean Gurugram. The moment we stepped into the hotel, we were instantly in the relaxing spa mode.

The spa had very soothing and calming vibes and the staff was very warm and friendly. We took our time to go through the whole list of services offered at the spa.  You can find all the information on their site.

The essence of Tattva massages is 'Sparsa' or touch based on Indian Ayurveda that strives to attain harmony & balance of the elements in the human body.

I wanted something to loosen up my tensed muscles and ease my body ache, so I opted for Deep Tissue Massage. Whereas, my sister opted for Indian Abhyanga which says -
In this tranditional Indian technique, your body is massage with the finest herbal oil inspired from ancient Indian Ayurveda. This helps reduce your body fatigue and knots in the muscles. Sit back let out healers bring the old magic back to life by relaxing your mind and body.

Before our massage we were asked to fill out a form specifying our selected massage and informing them if we have any injury or medical condition which they should know of. Also, on the form we were asked to mention how we were feeling before the massage by ticking few options. I was very tired and stressed and I mentioned the same on the form.

The best part was selecting oils for the massage, yes.. you can choose your oils depending on your needs and preference. Every oil had different properties and benefits and the staff very enthusiastically briefed us about  it. Once the massage was selected and the oils were picked... we were off to our rooms with our healers.

I always carry an extra pair of inner clothing as we all know the "Spa lingerie" ain't very comfortable.. you can do that too if you feel the same way I do.

My therapist was very soft spoken and polite, the room was spacious with perfectly dimmed lights and the bed was nice and clean. To be honest, I really liked the room it was really pretty.

The Massage

The therapist was amazing at her work and she was applying the perfect amount of pressure. My shoulder muscles were really tensed and she gently pressed and rubbed the right pressure points. I actually dozed off for a couple of minutes during the session. The massage took 60 minutes and it was followed up by full body steam.
I put on the bathrobe and hopped into the steam room, which was clean and perfectly steamy. After staying in the room for few minutes I went ahead to take a shower to wash off the oil and close my pores. The shower cabin had shampoo, conditioner , body wash as well as some extra towel.

I was given enough time to get ready and after leaving the massage section I was offered green tea.
By the time everything was done I was relaxed and very sleepy (so was my sister). She enjoyed her massage as well. It was a day well spent.

If you have Tattva Spa in your city I would recommend you try it out.

Cost for services provided

Deep Tissue Massage - 60 min / 90 mins - Rs 3200/ Rs 4800
Indian Abhyanga -  60 min / 90 mins - Rs 3000/ Rs 4500

Happy New Year 2017 !

The new year has started already and i am excited to see what this near has in store for me.
2016 has been like a roller coaster ride, loads of ups and downs.. be it health, personal life or work.
 I also took a much needed break from social media for almost a month and it actually worked as a reset button.

 Best wishes to my dear friends for an amazing year ahead.
May the sunshine of happiness always shine above you.

May the dense forest of love surround you all year round.
May you have a lovely New Year.

Health & Life Update + Pets

A lot has happened since the last time i posting something here, i feel my blog is lacking some personal touch and it makes me sad as i made so many great friends through this medium. Though i might not be regular here this blog and my readers will always remain dear to me not because of the opportunities or little achievements  that came my way.

Let me be honest why i lost interest in blogger for a while... first my married life and all the travelling which came along with it kept me on my toes and i noticed that everyone was trying to do the same stuff. The creative and innovative side of blogging was fading away. I am pretty sure a lot of you would agree with me but i wasn't able to stay away for long. All i can say is i enjoyed the break and now i see so many new talented and young bloggers emerging with great content on both blogsphere and YouTube.

I recently posted a long update video on my channel so i will keep this post short and to the point.
You can watch the video by clicking HERE.

So the past few weeks have been really painful for me, what seemed like a minor back ache in the beginning turned out to be a nightmare for me. Due to stress and physical exertion my back pain got really back to the point where i was unable to leave my bed without assistance. Even sneezing and coughing were a nightmare because it would put pressure on the back muscle. 
I used to dread going to the washroom as sitting and getting up from the seat was very painful. I was really scared as i though its some bone related problem but i turned out to a muscle pull or ligament tear due to bad posture of pushing and pulling heavy stuff. 

Anyways, i am better now but still healing. This time i am seriously planning to do a challenge series on the blog still deciding the content do let me know if you have any suggestions.

On another note i just realised i never introduced my pets on my blog... so a little behind story i wanted to have a dog but as we travel very frequently he/she might not get proper attention care so we dropped the idea for few years.
I was going through a phase where i was very moody and kinda depressed as i wasn't coping well with Sumit's work schedule. So one day just to cheer me up Sumit took me to a pet shop and i just feel in love with 2 cute and tiny Guinea pigs who were coming up to the cage and just squeaking at me, i know adoption is better than buying pets but i didn't have the heart to leave them in a ting and dirty cage and i decided they were coming home with me. This was on 1st May 2016 

Here is picture of them when they were very tiny... since then they have grown a lot and they are forever begging for more food... lol

Will share a recent picture very soon.

So this is pretty much all i wanted to talk about for now, trust me i tried to cut short this post as much as i can but i felt great sharing things again here.

Also, i hope you all had an amazing Diwali, you can see my Diwali outfit on my Instagram

I also have a special festive lookbook featuring my Mom, Sumit and my dear friend Rhea if you haven't seen it yet i am leaving it down here.

This is it for now, you can leave your lovely comment below i love reading them.
I'll see you soon.
