A Pinks Boutique Power Massage at City Spa Escapes, Manchester

Arriving at Quay House, Spinningfields for a Pinks Boutique Power Massage at City Spa Escapes, you would be forgiven for thinking you’ve turned up at the wrong place. This is because City Spa Escapes is located on the 2nd floor of what is essentially an office building in the wonderful location that is Spinningfields. However, as soon as you enter the spa, you lose all sense of that. There are 2 treatment rooms, both comfortable, warm and inviting, kitted-out with everything needed to provide a relaxing spa treatment.

I had opted for the Pinks Boutique Power Massage which promises a massage combining Eastern and Western techniques. It aims to soothe and relax aching muscles as well as cleansing your body and soul. A combination much needed for me a the moment! I’m in!

I managed to lose 12 lbs in 4 months, without being entirely strict and depriving myself of the things I love to eat and drink. This is the most I’ve ever lost and I didn’t feel starved and I even enjoyed the process and the control I had over my eating – I enjoyed finding Slimming World recipes, I enjoyed going to group and I enjoyed the weigh-ins (most of the time anyway).

Then the wedding came, closely followed-by the honeymoon and I spent pretty much 4 weeks eating and drinking exactly what I wanted, when I wanted. It was bliss! You’ll see from my Honeymoon posts, and from my Italian Food posts,  that we had a lot of fun eating and drinking our way around Italy, so I don’t regret a second of it. But when I got home and back on those scales, I realised just how quick it was to eradicate all that progress I’d made…what I’d lost in 4 months, I’d gained-back in 4 weeks!
