The London Guide For Wellness

London is an incredible placed to visit. Filled with history, culture, and unpredictable weather. With so much going on, sometimes you need a self care break.

We asked Sushma Sugar, founder of The Calmery and a recent guest on our This Life Explains It All podcast to share her top wellness spots in London. Here are Sushma’s top picks for self care in London:

Akasha Spa in Cafe Royal Hotel 

For: A spa experience like no other

This place is simply divine. An underground luxurious spa, with pool, yoga, massage, and other wellness, this place puts the TREAT into treatment, for when you want to be spoiled. 

She’s Lost Control

For: A conscious shopping experience,

The original pioneers of a modern mystical life, She’s Lost Control began in a tiny garage in the hippest part of East London and have since grown now with a pop up in trendy Broadway market. You can find, tarot, ethically sourced crystals, mists, jewelry, books, ceramics… you name it if it’s cool and it’s spiritual you will find it here. They host events and readings, a real community hub for the nicest witches in town. 

Remind Studio

For: A meditative experience and resetting amidst a busy day

Tucked away in a tiny backstreet in the heart of Victoria is this sanctuary of calm. Hosting a range of drop-in meditation classes this place truly soothes the soul. You can find a beautifully curated array of products to help you on your spiritual journey. 

Wolf Sister

For: A healing experience using crystals and intuition

Author of The Crystal Code and with a new book Luna coming out in 2020, Wolf sister is a real font of intuitive knowledge, tarot, crystals, healing you name it. She has a tiny private studio for one to one readings in Hackney, by appointment only.

Relax London

For: A different type of facial that’s tailored to each client

Around the corner from Wolf Sister, Relax has fast become the place to go for facials. They really personalize the experience and each facial is tailored to the client. Founder Katie’s approach is totally holistic having also trained in nutrition, she has taken on a team of amazing facialists doing all kinds of new techniques such as facial acupuncture and buccal massage ( which is inside the mouth where we hold lots of tension).  A place that stands out in its approach. 


Sushma Sagar, Energy Healer

Sushma Sagar is a next-level energy healer – the universe pretty much forced her into this field as she had such a gift to share with the world. She dealt with a painful breakup when she was young and was introduced to an acupuncturist who also happened to be an energy healer and that experience changed everything for her. She kept getting signs that she should become a healer herself. Now, she helps many through the painful life experience including breakups – that’s where her passion lies having experienced them herself. She believes there are different stages to breakups and you must remove the physical energy from it so you don’t repeat the same patterns again. Listen to her share her wisdom on a recent episode of our ‘This Life Explains It All‘ podcast.

We suggest working with Sushma for: Dealing with the pain of heartbreak, removing old, stuck energy from the body, and stress
