Walk just one street away to the hustle and bustle of Orchard road and you can find yourself at the My Cozy Room Spa – a boutique spa that prides itself on stellar customer service and offering a truly feel-good experience for all clientele.
The amazing treatments take place in an old shop house that is stunningly decorated in the style of a luxe European parlour. The treatments available include massages, facials and spa treatments as well as bespoke packages for special occasions.
Eliteror spoke with the spa manager Celine Tan, who shared her vision for the space.‘I used to struggle with my complexion and I found it difficult to find a salon that I felt comfortable in and that offered effective treatments for me’. This experience inspired Celine to open her own spa, which reflected her personal values ‘I want those who come to My Cozy Room to feel uplifted and supported as well as rejuvenated from the treatments.’ My Cozy Room is a nice alternative from chain spas which can feel rather impersonal and offer a routine experience.
Another key priority for the salon owner is to ensure that only the highest quality products are used on her clients. My Cozy Room exclusively uses Babor products – a German brand that prides itself on sustained research into skincare, has won numerous awards and is partnered with hotels worldwide that include branches of The Raddison, The Ritz-Carlton and The Intercontinental groups.
Eliteror was treated to the signature 4 in 1 massage which was actually created in house by Celine and her highly trained team of hands-on masseuses. The treatment begins with a back scrub which is designed to combat the effects that the build-up of sweat can have on the skin in that area. Perspiration is especially common in Singapore due to the humid climate and as Celine explained, this can lead to an accumulation of sebum which in turn causes acne on the skin. The scrub eliminates any excess oil on the skin and refreshes the client before the next stage of the treatment.
During the second stage the client is treated to a luxurious hot stone therapy, during which Hawaiian lava hot stones are placed on specific areas to reduce muscular tension in areas such as the in the neck and back – the perfect therapy for office workers who are prone to stiffness in these areas!After the hot stones, the masseuse delivers a customised full body massage.
The techniques used are a perfect mixture of traditional Chinese and Swedish massage – which ensures the massage works the areas it needs to without rendering the client in audible pain. Afterall, people go to spas to relax – not be pummeled to within an inch of their life. Before the treatment commences the individual consults with their therapist to highlight the areas that they’d like worked on and the technique that they’d like used. This means that there’s no awkward conversation mid massage which is always a relief.
Finally, comes the most decadent part of the treatment, where rose quartz or clear quartz crystals are used to softly massage one’s under-eye area. Apparent benefits include the reduction of puffiness and the smoothing of wrinkles and fine lines. Eliteror can assert that it will definitely leave you feeling fabulous and fully refreshed.
If you’re looking for a therapist that is truly in tune with your needs in a plush and intimate environment then look no further than My Cozy Room.
