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.

True Beauty can not be put in words,
Pictures do no justice to them either,
It must be felt! 🤗🤗🤗

Blue skies and green leaves -
Naturally beautiful just like you!
Where social media feeds us with the latest launches and must-haves everyday, it sometimes becomes hard to remember what we are blessed with.
A reminder to myself first 🙂
This Ramadan let us take time to reflect on how blessed we are, and how grateful we need to be for having being blessed with so much from clean water to safe homes - the needs which a lot of people are not priveleged to. 🏡🏡🚿🚿💧💧🇶🇦🇶🇦

Look, ladies, there's going to be a bunch of people/memes/articles/sheikhs/etc telling you that you can't do it. That you should take it easy. That they get it, your kids are young, your body is weak, your kitchen is small and your family is big, your life is HARD, you simply cannot achieve your worship goals so don't even try, its okay, there, there, pat, pat.
I'm here to tell you the exact opposite. I'm here to tell you: Yes You Can. I'm here to tell you that yes your life is is tough but you are tougher. I'm here to remind you that you push yourself all year. I see it. I see your willpower. And your strength. Your stubborn refusal to give in to all the difficult, trying circumstances of your life.
You are a champion.
And champions don't give up right before the actual race starts!
All year, we build ourselves emotionally and physically for Ramadan. THIS is the main event. This is where you get to test the mettle for yourself where all year you've been testing it for others.
Ramadan is for YOU. So get up. Push yourself. Set lofty targets and work your behind off trying to reach them. The pleasure is in the reaching. In the striving. NOT in the achieving. The achieving and assessment of achieving, we leave it to Him. That's not our business. We just keep ourselves busy trying.Don't NOT try because some one (a man probably) thinks you don't have it in you.
You do.Words as picked up from Drama Mama

When hotels really go out of their way to make moments memorable - a pretty little spread on our bed when we checked into the room at @movenpickjbrComing soon on my blog - a review of this property!This is the age of experience, and when it comes to hospitality, companies that go out of their way to pay attention to small details and make your stay as memorable, those are the tales you will always want to share.
In my case @movenpickjbr was a star except for the fact that they addressed me as Mr. Khansa all the time or am not sure if they thought Mr. M's name was Khansa 😂😂 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
