Body Lines Fitness Treatment | A Review

I had my reservation for 3 pm on a Friday Afternoon. I was very much relaxed mentally during my stay at Oryx Rotana, and that kind of really was a good start I believe.

Welcomed to the Spa by friendly smiles,  I chose to opt for the Body Lines Signature Massage. Warara from Thailand was my Therapist for the day – a petite, and I must say really strong lady ( concluded from my massage experience). As soon as I was there, I was given my towel, locker, bath robe, and guided to the changing room.

Before the massage, the therapist asked me about any injuries or other conditions.Things thing that you would probably want to tell your therapist include areas of tightness or pain, allergies, and conditions like pregnancy. You can also tell them up front if you have a preference for light or firm pressure. It’s best not to get a massage if you are ill.

Once done, I was lead to the Sauna where I stayed for a good 10 minutes. This was as part of the warm up process as it helps relax the muscles before the massage. The sauna was kept at a temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit which is kind of less than normal but it was good enough for my body to tolerate. While at the sauna, Warara soaked my feet in hot water, and massaged my feet for a bit. As per what she told me, this was done for my nerves to relax, and also to build a kind of friendliness with the therapist before the massage.

After this I was taken to my massage room which is a small room with everything needed to give massage to one person.

This was followed by Swedish massage which was a lot of kneading whilst applying an aromatic oil. I opted for lavender oil.

This was followed by Balinese massage – a massage with aromatic oil. In my case, I opted for lavender. The other choice given to me was lemon grass.

This was followed by Thai Massage which included a succession of arm and leg movements. The therapist was on the massage table, and really used all her strength to make the body many of the movements involved.

My massage lasted a good 1 hour, and it was really relaxing. After this I was done, and she lead me to the steam room, and asked me to stay there for a good 10 minutes, so my body pores could open up, and take in the massage oil.

It was a truly relaxing environment. The spa at Oryx Rotana may not be the best spa around Qatar but it covers the basics: gymnasium, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room. There is a separate area for men as well, and therapies are given by male therapists.

Yes, I went hiking up in my abaya, and whined that I couldn't make it up in time for the sunset, and couldn't make it up anyways.
I questioned posting this several times because my @skechers looked dirty
But then again, what is hiking without all that mess that gets on you? Its messy but this view is all you tend to remember in the end. The Beauty of Travel 💗 .

Nothing in life comes easy. Happiness comes from within. Everyone has their own opinion on what success is.
It is upto you to decide and work for the success you believe in honestly, and kindly. I always believe in the fact that if you put your heart and soul in paving your way, pulling up as many people as you can along the way, you will find yourself in a place you are content with, and surrounded by the right people.
It will happen but it will take time.
PERSEVERANCE & KINDNESS is key 🗝🗝🗝

MY VEIL STORY
They told me " I didnt have to wear the veil there. My husband wasn't around." I listened. I smiled. I didnt say anything back.
Little did they know that my husband had nothing to do with my veil.
It was my choice and I Didn't do it for him. What if my husband wasn't there?My religion to me is submission to God. He is all-seeing, all-hearing!I hear a lot of assumptions often and here's what I feel about it. Unless you are in their shoes, and you know every detail of their life, You dont have the right to assume. And, even if you do, please keep it to yourself, so that people are less hurt because of the assumptions you make.
Being fashionably nice is not in looks alone, it is in trying to hurt  as less possible around you with your words. Words once spoken that you cant take back!
Your choice of words are everything! It determines your style, class and elegance more than anything

Its easy to forget the beautiful memories we have like a beautiful sunrise.
Social Media makes it easy to whine and complain about things we dont have.
Perhaps if we remind ourselves more of the beautiful memories we have everyday, its going to be easier to be content with everything we have and get to experience in our life everyday!

The wind was strong, the water wild, but there was peace as we watched the sun go down.
Peace that only nature could provide with.
And, it was the most relaxing scene to watch.
A beautiful experience for me.
