Who doesn't like a nice foot or back massage after a stressful session of fashion show? That is what male models are doing at the ongoing Van Heusen India Mens Week (VHIMW) - heading for the spa and getting themselves pampered.
"Oh, it's so relaxing! After walking non-stop on the ramp for practice and the show, this foot-massage gives a divine feeling," model Sahil Shroff told IANS while getting a foot massage.
The spa is part of the VHIMW, and is giving free massages - hand, foot, back, full-body and head massage - to anyone feeling tired or stressed out. Be it models, visitors or media persons.
There are nine attendants from the Blossom Kochhar spa and in a day they have been attending to around 100 visitors.
"It has been hectic for us because we have been attending to around 100 visitors in a day. When they come here they are tired, but once they leave the spa, they have a smile on their faces," said Blossom Kochchar attendant Bosco, who gives full body massage.
"Aroma oils are used for the massage because they help you relax and relieve stress," he added.
Another model Inder Bajwa was getting a head massage in the parlour and said that it was a perfect "getaway" from the tight fashion schedules.
"The five shows a day leaves us with no time as we have to do the rehearsals and make up. Hence we have to find sometime for ourselves and this place is the perfect getaway from all that chaos," explained Bajwa.
Another model Vikram Nagpal was at the spa.
"I will opt for foot massage, though I would love to go for a head massage but my make-up doesn't allow me to do so," explained Nagpal.
It's not just the models, even media persons are not shying away from pampering themselves.
"I am feeling refreshed. My back was aching but this ten-minute magic has done wonders for me," said a media person after a session.
