K West Hotel and Spa's Treatment Room

The luxury urban retreat, which is situated in London's Shepherds Bush only a short walk from Westfield Shopping Centre, offer an array of treatments including a variety of massages, pampering opportunities as well as access to their hydrotherapy pool.

And among the various relaxation methods includes 20 minutes wrapped up in the latest gadget, which inflates to make you feel like you are floating on a cloud to give those in need optimum rejuvenation by ridding all of the tension from the bodys pressure points.

According to K West Hotel and spa's therapist under half an hour is enough time to rejuvenate the mind and body and "is the same as having eight hours sleep".

The dry flotation experience can also be followed by a Candlelight massage, which includes a deep tissue massage using one of three Aromatherapy Associates candles that are specifically designed to melt the scented oil of either The Colour of Provence: rich in soothing Lavender, Sunset in Egypt: bursting with Citrus or Flavours of Andalucia: with a sensuous Olive aroma that is then poured onto your spine and massaged into your tense body. The warmth of the oil instantly releases your body of any tension, whilst the oil itself with its therapeutic properties target the problematic areas, whether it is to combat dry skin, energise or relax the body.

K West Spa - which was awarded the Best Spa in London' award at the Good Spa Guide Awards last year and was crowned the World Luxury Spa Award - were the first spa to introduce Snow Paradise, which sees you step into a simulacra igloo-esque room covered in icicles to mimic the Finnish experience of alternating between freezing and steamy environments.

And for those who are already feeling the gloomy grey skies of winter are taking their toll on their bodies, K West Hotel and Spa offers a Sun Meadow, which is a room with UV lighting that doesn't tan the skin but helps to give the nutritious boost for the bones and combat those suffering from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).

The spa also features a nail bar, sanarium, sauna, aromatic herbal steam room and the fully equipped K Fit gymnasium.

After being pampered you can enjoy an Afternoon Tea in The Studio Bar, which is ornately decorated with up-cycled furniture and pendant lamps hanging overhead, where you can sip on alcoholic teas, the T-Rex tea infused with spices, fragrant rose petals, peppercorns, mellow green tea, black tea leaves and cherry flavouring, or a classic Earl Grey to accompany the salmon and cream cheese finger sandwiches, sliders, scones with passion fruit or strawberry jam, a decadent vanilla bourbon chocolate cup, as well as many other delicious treats.
