56 DAYSPA | AUGUST 2016 YOUR WELLNESS SPA PHOTO COURTESY THE HOUSE OF ELEMIS Tucked down a cobblestoned street in London's posh Mayfair district, The House of Elemis (elemis.com/us/house-of-elemis) serves as a showcase for the quintessential British brand that's also busy making waves stateside. Given a lavish overhaul last year, the three-story townhouse boasts 11 treatment rooms, two of which make up the top-fl oor Penthouse suite, decorated with a striking porcelain installation by ceramic artist Valeria Nascimento. Here, treatments take place on a bespoke Amber and Quartz bed; currently in demand: Elemis's signature, science-centric BIOTEC facials (from 60 min./£110), which begin with a high-tech skin analysis to identify areas of concern. Guests who book this loft-like private retreat also gain access to a personal spa concierge, who can secure anything from chilled water to last-minute theater tickets. In the basement Speed Spa, time-crunched clients can partake in abbreviated face, body, brow and waxing services. Entrance to this urban oasis is through an inviting ground-fl oor retail area, which stocks the full range of Elemis skin- and bodycare products.ÑLesley McCave CONTENTS 58 Healing News 60 Herbal Health 65 Wellness Essentials
