Mayfair Health & Beauty
Lanserhof at the Arts Club
17-18 Dover St., Mayfair
Several goop staffers are longtime fans of the Lanserhof’s clinic in Austria. So we were delighted when they opened their first UK clinic, across the street from the Arts Club in Mayfair. The custom-tailored programs at this medical spa and gym marry time-honored holistic treatments with modern medicine. Arts Club members and Lanserhof patients can avail themselves of the top-notch facilities that include Britain’s first cryotherapy chambers, treatment rooms for sports injuries, diagnostics with the clinic’s doctors, and a thoughtfully crafted menu of healthy food to tuck into post-treatment.
The House of Elemis
2 Lancashire Court, Mayfair
Each floor of this renovated townhouse seems more luxurious, calming, and super-indulgent than the next. The treatment packages are especially amazing if you have an afternoon to spare; if not, The Speed Spa offers 15-minute and 30-minute services like eye facials, firming facials, and massages—all of them fantastic. The spa’s Penthouse is even more luxe: A spa concierge arranges your entire experience, from a door-to-door chauffeur to tickets for a post-treatment show or restaurant reservations.
Aman Spa at The Connaught
Carlos Place, Mayfair
Hands-down one of our favorite places to stay in London, the Connaught in Mayfair manages to strike a balance between charming and yet totally modern. The hotel's 5,000-square-foot spa (the only Aman Spa of its kind outside of the resort group), is just as incredible as you'd imagine swathed in floor-to-ceiling marble. At just five treatment rooms strong, there's a welcome intimacy here—all treatments start with an herbal infusion to help you unwind and then treatments take from Chinese, Indian, and Thai influences. (Each of the treatment rooms has its own private steam room.) During the week, the spa hosts a 20-minute lunch meditation at 1 p.m. that's free and open to the public.
58-59 Margaret St., Fitzrovia
Nicola is well-known in London and around the world for being a top colorist with a long roster of both male and female celebrity clients. When she's not on assignment, she can be found at the John Frieda in London and more recently at her own, beautifully-appointed brick and mortar salon.
Hung D. Tran, M.D.
37C York St., Mayfair
Quite possibly the most qualified professional in acupuncture we've ever come across, Dr. Tran is trained in both eastern and western medicine, Qigong and even bone-setting. What this means is that he's an incredibly thorough, no-nonsense doctor who can treat a huge variety of ailments from neck and back pain to digestive issues, muscle spasms, and more. Nutritionist Amelia Freer describes him as a "grounded, educated, and caring support."
The Spa at the Four Seasons
Hamilton Pl., Park Lane, London
While you're pretty much guaranteed a solid facial at any of the Four Seasons, it's the Omorovicza treatments (they harness the curative properties of Hungarian mineral waters) at the Park Lane outpost that leave skin incredibly soft and glowing. Packed with anti-aging minerals, the products shine in particular during the exclusive gold hydrating facial, which starts with a copper-spiked lactic acid peel and ends with the ultra healing gold serum.
