The Buzz: The Four Seasons spa’s Chi Mineral Therapy treatment, is designed to replenish the minerals lost through stress or exercise. It’s suited to endurance athletes who have just completed a runChi Mineral Therapy at the Four Seasons Spa or competition. We booked ourselves in shortly after completing Barclays Moontrekker.

The Spa: The private treatment room was spacious and fresh, with a large window looking out onto a garden, and a small adjoining steam room. Make a day of it by lounging in the vitality pool, steam room and sauna before and after your treatment.

The Treatment: After a foot bath you are led to a dimly-lit steam room, where warm, mineral-rich Dead Sea mud is slathered onto the skin and firmly massaged into aching muscles as you lie on a warm marble table. We found this process especially effective on the legs, where radiated heat helped relieve painful joints. Then, you are wrapped in cloths scented with cinnamon and clove and left to breathe in the warming fragrance. After showering away the mud, you return for a deep tissue oil massage. Our masseuse knew exactly where our aches and knots were, and we felt the sore sinews unwind under the soothing pressure of her palms. Finally, a mask of aloe vera is applied to the face, where it melts into the skin, leaving it noticeably more plump and radiant.

Verdict: After the big race, our muscles were scorched and tender. This treatment ironed out those aches and left us floating on air. It was the ultimate treat after a major physical achievement.

Price: Monday-Thursday: $4,000; Friday-Sunday: $4,500.
