AN exotic Persian beauty treatment is now available in WGC.

Elley Spa, in Church Road, has been opened by Iranian mother and daughter team Elley Yamchi and Nasrin Najafi.

It offers customers the chance to experience the traditional Persian Hammam – an ancient cleansing practice similar to the Turkish bath.

The 70 or 90 minute treatment is available to both men and women – and currently includes a 15 per cent discount until August 31.

Nasrin, 25, a former University of Hertfordshire student, said: “We are currently the only Persian day spa in the area, and certainly the only business that offers the traditional Hammam treatment.

“We used to have to travel to London to get spa treatments like this, but now we have something in this area for everyone.”

For those not familiar with a Hammam, Nasrin explained what was involved.

“The treatment is performed in our luxurious steam room, and the process involves a steam, full body exfoliation using organic Persian products and a full body foam massage to cleanse and renew the skin,” she said.

“The body is then moisturized, and the client left to relax.

“The benefits of the Hammam are that it helps to remove dead skin cells, clears the skin, opening pores and allowing your skin to breathe.

“It increases lymphatic and blood circulation, and breaks down tight nodules in your muscles, allowing you to relax.”

She added: “Apart from the Hammam treatment, we also offer a variety of beauty treatments ranging from facials and waxing treatments, to nail services and makeup and bridal packages.”
