I was treated to a Synaethesia Spa treatment when I won the trip to England to visit the founders of lush, the factory tour, kitchen tour, etc.
Synaethesia is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. People who report such experiences are known as synesthetes. In one common form of synesthesia, known as color-graphemic synesthesia, letters or numbers are perceived as inherently colored. In spatial-sequence, or number form. Numbers, months of the year, and/or days of the week elicit precise locations in space (for example, 1980 may be “farther away” than 1990), or may appear as a three-dimensional map (clockwise or counterclockwise)
I’ve been to many spas, really fabulous spas, and though they were awesome, they were nothing like a Lush spa Treatment.
They’ve catered to our imaginations. Everything is color, scent, states of being, fantasy, Transformations.
Much, much more than getting a great body and head massage with a facial and quiet serene music and low light surroundings.
In Lush spas. They compose songs to go with your spa treatment. They’ve brought musicians (Simon Emmerson), singers, to weave beautiful sounds. And you’re surround by sound, not just music piped through a speaker system.
Bottles and Bottles of colored liquids, looking like potions, and lit up with light, line the shelves of the front greeting area.
A huge bathtub and shower area with every lush product imaginable to use.
Rose scented bubbles flying around the room.
The massage therapists were trained to do their massage movements in flow with the music, long, gentle strokes, and wrote the music to match.
You can hear birds, the gentle cooing seemingly right next to you. You can *Hear* the sun going down. I won’t try to explain that one.
My photos and lush photos of the Lush Spas is coming soon, as soon as I finish entering the new 2015 lush Oxford Street items here.
