Heaven V - beauty and well-being

eaven V, run by the lovely and very experienced Lyndsey Huntley, is the surprisingly large and very tastefully decorated beauty salon - for both men and women - located in Virgin Active Barbican. The salon is available to everyone – not just gym members. The salon includes four relaxing treatment rooms decorated in plum/beige, smelling all cosy and calming – where even the very orderly arrangements of creams and oils add to the atmosphere of tranquility; a gorgeous pink manicure/pedicure room - where you can also have the Jessica gel manicure for those who favour gel nails; the more clinical IPL room - offering hair removal, skin rejuvenation and treatments for pigmentation problems; the spray tan room - where you can get tanned in a flash with the St Tropez product range. Other services offered: massage therapists – including sports specific massage; chiropractor; physiotherapist and osteopath.


If you’re tired or stressed and feel that your spirit is flagging and your skin could look younger and brighter (this applies to men as well as ladies) then try the Elemis Pro Collagen Quartz Facial. This is a seventy five minute super-relaxing facial thanks to the significant role of aromatherapy and massage – face, neck, scalp, arms and hands. Lucy Smith did this treatment for me after work on a Tuesday. She uses a rosewood cleanser first. The pores are then opened using warm lavender compresses. Massage with rose oil capsules totally de-stresses and calms you.


Frangipani flower with coconut oil is wonderfully moisturizing on the arms and hands. Between each stage of the treatment warm compresses infused with revitalizing lime or relaxing rosewood and lavender are applied to your face. My skin looked lovely and bright and I felt fabulously tranquil all evening (through kids homework, supper and bedtime – quite an achievement). I even woke up the next morning feeling great. Having not had a facial for quite some time I had forgotten the wonderful sense of well-being that these Elemis treatments at Heaven V can give you.
