Probably the majority of us struggle to put down our work and take time to relax. I know, sometimes it can be a bit hard to take your mind off work and the busy schedule, but relaxation can be extremely important. Relaxation will most definitely refill your batteries, help rejuvenate yourself and fill your mind with new ideas and motivation. In theory, I know, but sometimes it can be hard to put into practice. Luckily, Grand Hotel Primus Ptuj came to the rescue and gave me and a few other Slovenian bloggers a true 2 day pampering experience.
During our time there, we had the opportunity to fully explore the treats of Valens Augusta Wellness at the Grand Hotel Primus. With its invigorating Roman-style thermal springs, it offers hedonistic pampering of the whole body and soul. We had the chance to try out their Emperor and Vespasianus swimming pool complexes, Flavia thermal baths and saunas, as well as the topical VIP rooms (Japanese, Oriental and Roman – Katja, Anela, Tesa and I opted for the Japanese one). They pampered all of our senses.
The treatment, I was rather curious to try out, was their famous Med Contour treatment. It’s supposed to be one of the most effective non-invasive methods for reducing excessive fat and stubborn cellulite, being a natural alternative to liposuction. Considering its (rather high) price, I expected it to be interesting. A quick theory behind it: »Med Contour shapes the body using ultrasound, vacuum massage, lymph stimulation and lymphatic drainage. In just 45 minutes the size of the treated parts is reduced by as much as 2.5cm. The treatment has a targeted effect on even the deepest parts of fatty tissue. It involves no surgery, no pain and no recovery time.« It sounded promising, the physician and I decided to focus on my upper thigh area and after the treatment I walked out of the room with 1cm less in circumference (crazy, right?). I was escorted to the room where I put on (rather weird) lymph stimulating pants and was instructed a 3-day meal recommendation. I am not sure about doing it again (at least not at this point), considering it’s price, but it was an interesting experience, which turned out to be surprisingly effective. However, I am looking forward to trying out some of their facial treatments, especially the unique Med Visage in the future. The saunas in wine barrels sound great as well.
I will never underestimate the importance of having a complete pampering session, away from the everyday hustle and bustle, it’s a true blast not only for my body and skin, but also for my mindset. Grand Hotel Primus Ptuj, thank you for having me!
