This is the Spot

If you’re like me the weekend’s exertions can leave you feeling like a broken man. I have to admit that all the riding definitely takes it toll on my body. As well as cycling I play soccer competitively and have a very hectic social life. To maintain my lifestyle as the Playboy of the Western Seaboard I realise that I need to look after myself. Tragically most of the thing that are good for us are boring and tastes terrible, have you even seen someone that eating a pizza look sad? Me either! Fortuntaly I recently enjoyed something that’s great for the body and located in one of my favourite places in Ireland.

The ESPA in the G Hotel is a little piece of heaven in Galway city, away from the hustle and bustle, the Thermal Spa is the ideal way to unwind from the stress of modern life, I genuinely feel like a new man after each visit. For some reason spa treatments have become synonymous with girly weekends away. The facilities and treatments available cater to both sex’s, perfect for a couples break or for the lads to recover after a big game or race, in the Vitality pool.

I went for the ESPA Fitness Massage which is a deep muscle massage designed to alleviate deep-seated tension and muscular stress. The whole experience is so chilled out and invigorating especially compared to getting kicked around a muddy pitch for ninety minutes. The masseuse couldn’t have been nicer; she asked a few questions to see what areas I want to focus on, she then selected the aromatherapy oils based on my preferences. I can assure you that this isn’t a light rub, this is a proper massage, not painful but you know its working.

The masseuse pointed out that I had incredible tension in my shoulders; I explained this was due to the constant pressure of being a role model and sex symbol which she agreed could be an attributing factor.

Sport at every level has become so competitive now anything which gives you a slight edge can make the difference. We don’t all have the luxury of a team masseuse in the dressing room after games but there’s a good reason teams employ one. I know that many top sports stars and Galway GAA players regularly avail of the G Hotels facilities, she reckoned I was the most famous player she’s met so far and I’m pretty sure she was being serious.

We all need a good rub every now and again….treat yourself and your body to a relaxing vistit to ESPA at the G Hotel
