If Bali is too far a journey for a massage (see our travel story on pages 40-44), then head to Ushvani in Chelsea, which thankfully has some of the best Balinese therapists in the capital. Their signature massage, fragrant with coconut and hibiscus oil, penetrates deeply into the muscles. The women-only spa pool and steam room downstairs is a welcome retreat from the bustle of Sloane Street. The new yoga studio also offers excellent one-to-one tuition as well as weekly Shri Vivek classes, based on the traditional techniques of master Guruji Swami Shree. Massages and treatments are £180 for 90 minutes, ushvani.com
