One of the latest treatments being rolled out at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental’s spa is this deep tissue tension-relaxing massage (from $1,000) specifically aimed at men to alleviate stresses in joints and muscles. The treatment is available for either 60 or 90 minutes; and the full ‘reviver’ experience will see you rubbed down with waxes and vitamin sports oils. Next… out comes the bamboo stick. Don’t worry, you’re not being transported to an Elizabethan court (‘wrack him!’) – the rolling stick is used to localise each muscle group in your body, and to stretch and strengthen the sensitive areas, as well as compressing your joints and tenderising the tissues. Initially you may groan at the pressure, but you soon slip under the sharply soothing treatment. Your back, shoulders, limbs and neck are given incredible amounts of attentive focus, and when the massage is complete you’ll feel like a loose limber athlete. Best of all, you have access to the LMO’s incredible heat facilities and their dimly-lit sanctuary room where you can nibble on fruits, read the newspapers and lie back with a pair of earphones.
