on blythswood spa day with the momma

Yesterday the mother and I thought we'd treat ourselves to a cheeky wee spa treatment at the beautiful Blythswood Spa. I've been to the Blythswood a couple of times - The Salon, the cinema and the gorgeous Monte Carlo suite so it was about time I checked out the spa.
We were greeted by Laura - polite, friendly and helpful - running my mum and I through the spa and how the thermal experience works and showed us to the changing room. When we got to our locker - where we got our dressing gowns, towels, bottled water and flip flops. Blythswood really does think of everything - (the mother and I had made a mad dash to Primark for flip flops in the morning so Blythswood providing really was a pleasant surprise.)
The thermal experience was amazing - billed as a journey from hot to cold, dry and wet mum and I both had out favourites. I was a sucker for the hot rooms - especially the Crystal Steam Room. It smelled gorgeous and I could have spent my entire day in there. The Saunarium was pleasant - sort of a cross between a steam room and sauna but not quite nearly as hot. Sauna of course was wonderful, though mum couldn't deal with the heat for too long so the ice fountain and cold showers were a God send.
My mum could have spent her afternoon hopping quite happily between the hydro and vitality pools, often dragging (oh the burden!) me back to the Hydro Pool between hot rooms - probably for the best. The Hydro Pool was gorgeous and I did love the soft changes in lighting - a foam of pinks and greens was very surreal and dreamlike. I loved how the thermal experience was just made up of little nooks and crannies - always new spots to find for quiet. After a couple of hours hopping from room to room it was time to get out treatments. I opted for the Deep Tissue Massage while my mum got the Anne Semonin Phyto-Aromatic facial. I'd never had a massage before for after my treatment at the Blythswood I have to say I'm a convert. There is something really satisfying about hearing your back click and crunch. My shoulders felt so numb and light after the treatment. I am dying to try the Turus Hot Stone Massage after my experience there. My mum loved her facial - reporting back that the girl that provided her treatment was amiable and chatty, tailoring the treatment perfectly to her skin and after leaving her skin felt fresh and light.We went for cocktails after - I'd recommend a Mary Quaint - rum, cherry liqueur, pineapple juice and gerdaline garnished with a cherry. It was perfect. I've already started looking at spa days at the Blythswood for later this year - particularly the Turus Package looks like something I'd like to give a whirl. Safe to say Blythswood's reputation as one of the best spas in Scotland is well deserved.
