TV presenter Ciara Whelan on her first Reiki treatment...

Dubai as a whole is perfect for anyone looking for some luxurious pampering - and I don’t use the word luxurious loosely! I visited The Madinat Jumeirah, one of the sister hotels of Burj Al Arab and at the Talise Wellness Centre there I tried Reiki, an alternative therapy. If I was left to my own devices, I would usually choose a treatment that is very hands-on, like a strong Thai massage, but the great thing about working on ‘The Holiday Show’ is that I had to try a lot of new therapies. With the chakra healing I realized that hands-off can be just as fulfilling. With the use of aromatherapy and crystals, the therapist opens your chakras and although she never touches you, it is just as pleasing as any massage. I felt like the weight of the world had been taken off my shoulders!
