As a long time Bodhi J and Sodashi fan, to say I was a little excited when I heard Bodhi J was adding the luxe Sodashi Oud Renewal Therapy to their list of spa treatments would be a serious understatement.
If you’ve never used any Sodashi products, you’re missing out. While they aren’t cheap, they are worth every single penny. The products contain only natural ingredients which are chemical free and ethically sourced. Known for their therapeutic and regenerative qualities, all the products are made with love in their Fremantle facility. And while all of their products are amazing, if you’re looking for something seriously lavish, the Arabian Oud Body Oil is what you’re after. If you could bottle the feeling of relaxation, this would be it. Splurging on a bottle of this will make you one of the happiest humans alive, but if you really want to treat yourself (or a special someone in your life) the Sodashi Oud renewal treatment at Bodhi J is the way to do it.
If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting the Bodhi J Pier Street spa you’ll know it’s absolutely stunning—lush gardens, beautiful treatment rooms, exposed brick walls and a team of therapists who will have you feeling relaxed from the second you walk through the door.
Once you’re all robed up, you’ll be taken to one of the spacious treatment rooms where the fun begins. You will be pampered form head to toe (quite literally) for the next 90 minutes, so get comfy.
The treatment starts with a foot massage which is just long enough to make you feel all kinds of relaxed, before turning into a back and arm massage, followed by a facial and scalp massage and finishing off back down at your feet. All massages at Bodhi J are good, you don’t need us to tell you that, but the massage with the warm Oud Oil is so calming, even the most anxious among us will walk out feeling as peaceful as a sleeping baby.
At some stage, maybe after the massage but before the facial (I was so relaxed I really can’t remember), some aromatherapy comes into the mix. Your therapist will instruct you to take a deep breath in through your nose and the smell of the essential oil is so soothing it’s almost intoxicating—in the best way possible.
The facial is tailored to your skin type and will have your skin glowing for days after the treatment, but if you’re going to get really excited about a part of this treatment, it’s the acupressure facial massage. Using the Oud Oil, the therapist applies light pressure to certain pressure points on your face, and it basically feels like heaven. For someone who struggles to relax and shut off my mind, I was seriously impressed when I almost drifted off during this part of the treatment.
The treatment is said to have a huge range of benefits from alleviating negativity and anxiety and improving sleep to detoxification, improving digestion and releasing muscle tension. While I wasn’t feeling a lot of negativity or anxiety beforehand, I can say that I walked away feeling more relaxed than ever, and I slept like a baby after the treatment!
