Despite our astonishingly healthy lifestyles (ahem), even Spa Spies are felled by the Dreaded Lurgy.
Yes, it’s a made-up word invented in the 1950s by comedian Spike Milligan. But this isn’t man flu. The Lurgy is essentially a vile cold/flu virus that hits your weakest spots, renders you incapacitated for days and makes you singularly undesirable to all those around you. It’s spreading around our office like wildfire, and even though it is tempting to steam it out, we would advise staying away from spas – we don’t want your Lurgy germs hanging around in the mist.
While we can’t claim to help cure The Lurgy, we have found that certain spa products help make it slightly more bearable. So here are the Spa Spies’ Top Ten Luxury Lurgy Busters that’ll bring the best of spa to you.
You probably don’t care what you look like, but there’s nothing more ageing than The Lurgy and nothing better than a peel to remove years. We love this peel: doesn’t matter how terrible you feel, the results will deliver a brief glow of spa happiness in the midst of your suffering.
If you are forced to travel and don’t feel quite right in the head, dab this healing oil on your wrists and inhale. It was created for surviving flights with a cold, but it works just as well on all forms of public transport where bugs are rife.
Essential for a post Lurgy recovery trip, this fabulous treat includes a 40-minute Haslauer Sunlight Therapy session, plus Reiki, reflexology, an aromatherapy herbal steam massage and dry floatation wraps. Head for the powerful salt inhalation room and an abundance of fresh air around their breathtaking grounds.
