This is the perfect pampering spa treatment to pick, according to your star sign

Choosing a spa treatment is one of the hardest beauty choices of all. How are you meant to decide on just one when they all look so damn good? First of all, you have to weigh up whether you want to go for something relaxing to unwind, or whether you want to go for something more hardcore for maximum results? Then, you have to think about whether you choose a body treatment like a body wrap, a massage, or a facial – which is hard when you literally need all of the above and you can't figure out which ailment to address first.

According to Champneys Spa Manager, Alice Lightfoot, and professional astrologer, Heather Whitt of The Alchemy Co, your star sign might help dictate the precise spa treatment you need the most right now. ““Embarking on a spa trip can have many health benefits but with a range of treatments to choose from, it can often be overwhelming to navigate which treatment would be best for you,” says Alice. “From a facial to a hot stone massage, each treatment offers specific benefits and healing properties, ones that work best when matched to each person’s individual lifestyle and personality traits."

Aries (21st March - 19th April) - Sports massage

“Aries is a very energetic sign and the best way for them to release tension is to do something active. What's more, being ruled by Mars, the planet of war, they’re the bravest of the signs and not afraid to feel the burn,” says professional astrologer, Heather Whitt. However, the downside of all that physical activity is sore muscles and fatigue, meaning a good deep tissue sports massage is what's needed the most to relieve those aches and pains.

Taurus (20th April - 20th May) - Facial

According to Heather, Tauruses love serene environments and soothing aromas, meaning a facial would be perfect. “As an Earth sign, Tauruses are perfectly in tune with their senses and love surrounding themselves with luxurious scents and textures, so what could be better than getting closer to the earth with a sensual facial.”

Gemini (21st May - 20th June) - Manicure

“Geminis are the life and soul of the party and love to communicate,’ Heather Whitt explains. “Each astrological sign rules a different part of the body, and Geminis love to gesticulate, it’s no surprise that Gemini rules the hands and arms." Opt for a fresh manicure to help express your personality ready for the next party, while also treating those hard-working hands.

Cancer (21st June - 22nd July) - Yoga

Cancerians can be sensitive and take on other people's problems, which can mean that you carry a lot of emotion, whether it’s your own, or sympathy pains for the people you love. “A calming yoga class that can be taken with three people suits your desire for intimate settings where you can feel a one-on-one connection,” says Heather.

Leo (23rd July - 22nd August) - Wrap treatment

Leos love to be pampered so it’s not surprising that a luxurious wrap treatment would be a perfect choice for this fire sign. “You like to stand out and have a love of luxury, so indulging in a full-body wrap, cocooning yourself in a veil of conditioning body butter, or even enjoying a seaweed wrap to detoxify and purify would be the ideal choice to give you that majestic glow."

Virgo (23rd August - 22nd September) - Wax

“Virgos are super hard working and they’re always helping others so it’s important for them to take time to fully relax,'' says Heather. “However, Virgo’s idea of relaxation might not be what other people expect.” A simple relaxing treatment would never do for Virgos, your version of pampering is investing in yourself – a luxurious waxing treatment appeals to Virgos' perfectionist tendencies.

Libra (23rd September - 22nd October) - Hot stone massage

Balance and harmony are important to Libras, so relaxing and unwinding with a hot stone massage is a perfect choice. Heather says, “Libra is the sign that rules the spine, so a hot stone massage is an ideal treatment to restore peace and harmony.”

Scorpio (23rd October - 21st November) - Salt and oxygen chamber

Scorpios are known for being passionate and mysterious. “Your love of intrigue means that this modern and innovative treatment – a Salt and Oxygen chamber – is the perfect option for you,” recommends Heather. She goes on to explains that this immersive experience will help Scorpios to reflect and cool off.

Sagittarius (22nd November - 21st December) - Workout class

As a Sagittarius, you are constantly seeking self-improvement and looking to experience new adventures, so you might be better off booking into a workout class. “Sagittarians love self-improvement and socialising,” adds Heather. “A workout class can be explored on your own to tap into that one-on-one training, or can be shared with other people to excite your social side and bring out the fun factor!”

Capricorn (22nd December - 20th January) - Body massage

Often described as the most grown-up of the signs, Capricorn is known for being sensible and responsible. “Your ambition and persistence in life can mean that sometimes you just need to stop for a moment and reboot - and a Swedish back massage personally designed to get to those knots and places of tension is the ultimate fit for you, Capricorn," says Heather.

Aquarius (21st January - 18th February) - Crystal treatment

According to Heather, Aquariuses are one of the most spiritual signs of the zodiac: “You're never afraid to think outside the box and try innovative new things, so a beautiful crystal treatment is an ideal fit for you,” she says.

Pisces (19th February - 20th March) - Flotation Treatment

Pisces are known for being romantic as well as for day-dreaming and fantasising about the future. “A flotation treatment allows you to dream big,” says Heather. “Plus, as a water sign by nature, Pisces feels at home and at one with water and a flotation treatment will allow you to relax into weightlessness."
