'A spa room had come to my home!'

Swedish body massage with Blossom & Jasmine

The blurb

Founded by celebrity beauty therapist and nail expert Gintare Lisauskiene in 2009, Blossom & Jasmine offers fully mobile beauty and luxury spa treatments from make-up artistry and hair styling to tanning and reflexology.

With two permanent spa sites – Godalming Manor House and Shrubland Royale – and a client list that includes Mulberry, Mandarin Oriental, supermodels and MPs, the company is experienced in offering top-notch service with ultimate convenience whether it’s styling for international photoshoots or providing an at-home massage at 2am. Notably, Gintare hand-picks every therapist for the Blossom & Jasmine books.

The process

Considering Gintare previously worked for the likes of Harrods, Selfridges and Bliss Spas, it probably wasn’t surprising that my therapist, Gigi, had also previously worked at Harrods and Selfridges.

With 14 years’ (which includes press, international and celebrity) experience, Gigi was the consummate professional. I was booked in for an at-home Sunday morning Swedish massage and Gigi arrived in plenty of time to set up and take me through the health questionnaire. I was astonished by how she so easily carried in and set up her massage table (complete with towels and tissue paper). She also put on her chilled iPhone playlist and had a candle at the ready. A spa room had come to my home!

Gigi asked about my needs – full-body, concentrate on shoulders, avoid my hair please – and used a soya and wheatgerm oil with aromatherapy oils for my relaxing full-body massage.

​The results

I not only noticed the difference in my tension-prone spots (shoulders and neck) but also in my calves. The at-home experience felt hugely pampering, too – all the benefits of a five-star spa massage without having to rush off anywhere afterwards.
