Review | Wahanda & Full Body Massage - Beauty Above

Hello my lovelies.

Wahanda recently contacted me & asked if I would like to pick a massage treatment* from their site to review. I'd never had a massage before & was uber excited to book one. Incase you've never heard of Wahanda before here is a little information on them...

'Wahanda is the online home for health, beauty and wellness, with comprehensive listings of spas, salons and health centres across the globe at its very foundations. You'll also find that it's decorated with expert tips and advice, with everything you need to know about treatments, trends and therapies proudly on display for all to see. So, if you’re wondering where your nearest spa is, whether to wax or shave, what to eat before yoga or maybe you’re just curious about colonics, at Wahanda you can gather together a scrapbook of everything you need to know and all the exciting spas and clinics around the world you want to try out.'

Before Wahanda contacted me I had actually used them in the past to purchase vouchers at my local hair salon. the booking experience is very simply, you just input what you're looking for in what area and you'll see what they have to offer. You buy an e-voucher which you print, call your chosen salon & take the voucher along with you to your appointment. Easy as peas!

After Wahanda contacted me it took me a little while to pick the salon I wanted, I didn't want to waste my first massage! i finally settled on Beauty Above in Gravesend, it had really good reviews & the lady I spoke to was really friendly.

After I booked my full body massage with Laura I was SO excited all week! When I arrived at the salon Laura was really friendly, she took my coat and talked me through what the massage would entail. I explained about my blog & she allowed me to take pictures. I took lots on the day but they didn't turn out too well, the only half decent one is the picture above so apologies for that.

I had booked a 90 minute full body massage and i have to say I have never been so relaxed in my life. Laura started off on my back & shoulder area, I've always suffered with tension in this area and she spent around 45 minutes working the muscles and popping out the knots, eww! She then moved onto the arms & legs, I found it quite tickly at first but soon got used to it. I go to the gym regularly so the muscles in my legs often ache, she paid special attention to this area & it felt amazing. She finished with a head massage, I can't comment on this too much as I fell asleep, how embarrassing! If anybody ever plays with my hair I fall straight to sleep, from what I remember it was lovely!

Overall I enjoyed the whole massage experience a great deal & will certainly be booking another with Laura very soon. I always thought massages were a waste of money, I would prefer to have something to keep like a new blush or lipstick rather than a massage but now I know what they're like I can't wait to book another!

If you're looking for a massage in Kent I would definitely recommend taking a look at Wahanda!

Are you a massage fan?

  1. I'm a HUGE massage fan! And don't feel silly about falling asleep, I once had a head massage at the hair dressers, one minute I was head back in the sink and the next she was tapping me on the shoulder, I think they must be used to it!

    Botanics aromatherapy base bath body and massage oil is really good if you're ever having/giving a massage yourself, and it's lovely in the bath, really relaxing :)

    Hope you're having a good weekend!

    How old do you have to be to get a full body massage, regular body massage or any time?

  6. Sounds awesome. In fact the best place to start the massage is the top of the foot. Working about the toes, use slow and gentle motions to work the oil in. Then slowly move toward the ankles. Use your thumbs to massage the bottom of the foot as you proceed towards the ankles. Use light and firm pressure in turns so that the feet become relaxed and circulation flows smoothly.
