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.
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."
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.
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.
