The Valmont Fit and Tone Body Massage at White Room Beauty in Knightsbridge is not for those seeking a soothing, scented hour of relaxation. It uses targeted movements to resculpt and train the body muscles with the aim of reducing cellulite and stimulating the lymphatic system. The more stubborn the water retention, the harder the massage — but you will definitely notice the benefits later
and the creams supplied will leave your skin feeling silky smooth. £160.
The spa at the members-only Devonshire Club is open to all and it’s where Dr Yannis Alexandrides (from the 111 Harley Street practice) is offering everything from 30-minute facials to face-tightening injections. The 111 Lightfinity Express Facial (£75) includes a smothering of potions and a space-age-style mask with LED lights that takes the party pallor out of your skin.
