Being invited to spend a luxurious morning at KX gym and spa could not have come at a more perfect time; an intense week of work, combined with looking after my increasingly active 8 month old, meant I needed the time alone to workout and unwind.
KX is without question one of the most beautifully designed fitness and well-being spaces in London; the deep wood interior, spacious gym (which contained certain equipment so advanced that as a guest for the morning, I chose to avoid what could have been a most embarrassing spectacle) and exquisite spa gave my exhausted self the surroundings I needed to relax for a few precious hours.
The highlight, not only of my day, but easily of my year so far, was a 90 minute treatment in the serene KX Spa – a spa that, unbeknown to me for so many years, is open to non-members.
With this one pampering morning at KX, I had secured an appointment with a therapist that so many friends had recommended to me over the years. Far more than a therapist, Zenny is an energy healer, a well-being visionary and most of Hollywood have called on her at some point for one of her remarkable treatments.
With Zenny’s energy healing present throughout the initial 60 minute expertly executed body massage, there can be no way to describe just what you feel during the treatment as it’s not a case of simply relaying the experience of a massage. For me, I moved through sensations of what I can only imagine levitation to feel like, to then being transported to a paradise island – yes, I appreciate that this may sound a little loopy, but if you experienced a session with Zenny, you would be finding your own paradise island to write about!
Following the massage, my face was given a workout with Zenny’s famed technique; I had long known of her remarkable reputation for temporarily transforming faces simply by the movement of her hands (a great treatment to have a few days prior to an important event) and upon seeing myself for the first time post-facial, my face had visibly lifted.
My last stop was the elegant members restaurant for a superb smoothie before heading back out onto the bustling streets of Knightsbridge and back to reality.
