The Spa at The Bulgari Hotel & Residences, London, has launched a range of Pure Flow Pulsation treatments so I went along to try out this weird and wonderful counter-pulsation therapy. It’s designed to boost circulation, increase energy and to restore equilibrium, it is truly one of the oddest things I have ever tried.
You are connected to the machine with straps and a heart monitor that pumps air to massage your legs and thighs in time with your heartbeat. The theory is that it simulates circulation and lymph drainage – which is great during a detox programme and perfect to help remedy jet lag and aching muscles after a long flight. It was uplifting and awakening too – I was alert and really felt great as a result. No creams or potions are used. You hop into a pair of spa pyjamas and can dim the lights to sleep or read.
Immediately afterwards my legs felt lighter, but after a series of 4 treatments in 4 days, they felt trim, toned and pretty incredible. I also lost the bloat from my belly. Had I not tried this, I would never have believed it.
