We’ve switched to oxygenated

By TOR posts

TOR’s Super heated pool has now switched to being OXYGENATED. From now on the pool will use oxygen and ultraviolet light to create ozone, which will treat the water, thus dramatically cutting the need for chemicals (up to 90%). So all in all, a much purer environment and just as clean.

Stressed by the school holidays?

By TOR posts

Ayurvedic massage at Tor Spa RetreatSummer holidays are supposed to be good fun, spending time with the family and relaxing. That’s how it works for the children anyway. It’s a bit more tricky for the grown ups though, with new school uniforms to organise, child care to plan, play dates to arrange and then the family holiday to get through too.

Why don’t you treat yourself to a spa day package as a “Back To School” treat once the children are all safely back with the teachers!

Planning a hen night?

By TOR posts

Both stag and hen events have expanded in scope over recent years. Traditionally a hen night might have been held in the evening a week or so before the big day. It is now common for the hen night to be more of a hen weekend and encompass a day trip or even a weekend away.

If your best friend has lumbered you with the responsibility of planning a hen night and you are beginning to despair about what to do for it, here is a list of possibilities that are a bit more imaginative than a night out at the pub with a veil and L-plates.

Activity Centre – how about taking a leaf out of the men’s book and investigating the local activity centre. Paintballing need not be limited to the men though make sure everyone knows not to give the bride a visible bruise! Quad biking and karting might run slightly less risk of bruising. Other possibilities to encourage the competitive spirit are clay pigeon shooting or archery.

Horse Races – if the hen in question is not the rough and tumble type, how about donning your best frock and putting a fascinator in your hair and strutting your stuff at the race course.  The races are a perfect opportunity to have a glass of champagne and admire the glamour of the surroundings.

Cruise – Continuing the glamour theme, if you live beside a river or the sea, there are often cruise packages available that are tailored for a hen party including a bit of music and the opportunity to have a dance.

Pampering – if the bride to be gets sea sick, and hates sports and you’re all out of original ideas, how about a day of pampering at a spa. At TOR spa you can have exclusive use of the spa if you have a group of 12 hens. If you’d like to find out more about our hen days then get in touch with us on 01227 728 500

What are the three doshas?

By TOR posts

What are the doshas? The three doshas are the basic biological molecules which constitute all living creatures. The three doshas form the basis of your physical constitution, your mental capacities and your emotional make-up. Individuals can be of one type of dosha or a combination.

That is, a person can be vata, pitta or kapha only or vata-pitta, vata-kapha or pitta-kapha. In fact, most people are a combination of two doshas. A particular combination of doshas may be ideal for one person but may cause disharmony to another person.

The foods we eat and the lifestyle we lead will also affect the equilibrium of each of the doshas within us.
