Why you should book this two sets of hands massage at Bodylines
We had always wondered how it would feel like to experience a four hands massage and recently, we were booked at Yas Island Rotana to review their 60-minutes four hands massage.
Arriving at Bodylines Fitness & Wellness Club almost half an hour before our booking time, the receptionist took us to the changing room where we got a locker and then were kindly invited to relax at the sauna, steam bath or jacuzzi before our treatment started (be aware it is open to both genders).
We then made our way to the cozy massage room with our two therapists Melanie and Asi who have been working together for more than two years.
Invited to lay down on the bed massage with our face down, the two therapists started massaging our body, one focusing on the lower half of the legs while the other was massaging our lower back.
Disturbingly, during the first ten minutes, your brain cannot process the movements of both sets of hands working together. But as soon as we felt that one therapist was focusing on our upper back spending long minutes massaging our tensed muscles undoing our back knots, we disconnected effortlessly to fully enjoy the benefits of such a treat while the other one was dedicated to massaging our muscle calves.
During the one hour, we experienced a combination of sport massage techniques using massage oil (with a petal rose fragrance) and shiatsu techniques with dry hands and a deep pressure on our body parts.
The entire body – from toes, feet, ankles, calves, back thighs, kidneys/waist, back, shoulders and neck – was firmly massaged and the idea really is to work on our deep and stressed muscles and relax the mind
Halfway through, we turned face up and the massage went on with our shoulders and chest, arms and hands being taken care of while the second therapist was managing our front legs and feet. We also loved the gentle hands massage that nicely stretched our fingers and relaxed our palms and the shiatsu scalp massage.
What is amazing is we almost floated for one hour as the therapists movements were often synchronized. The movements reminded us of a ballet or choreography with a constant focus on balancing their movements on our body, working in diagonal most of the time (upper left with low right and vice versa…).
We hadn’t realized how tense our body was until we left the spa feeling totally rejuvenated with our mind at ease and sore muscles released.
A must-try treat in Abu Dhabi!
