In this day and age everyone is quick to offer advice on how to do things better and quick to point out failings; people often forget to give praise when due. I wanted to drop you a short email to do just that.
My wife suggested [ie insisted] I went to Grace this morning to see Olivia de Maigret as I have been suffering with a bad shoulder and headaches. I rang Grace when I got to the office this morning and had an appointment within an hour. I got a smart email confirmation and from the moment I arrived to the moment I left everyone was charming, the service was exceptional and the surroundings absolutely beautiful (in all the right ways). Olivia was quite simply brilliant - she was engaging, she listened and she understood – she transformed my shoulder and helped with my headaches – she gave sound advice, she gave reassurance (through her confidence) and she made me feel a million times better. I left the club and walked home via the Kings Road (and Holland & Barret, as Olivia told me to top up on magnesium!), I enjoyed that walk more than I can say – it felt the weight of the world had been lifted off my shoulders – I felt refreshed, energised and happy.
So I wanted to say a huge well done – Grace does exactly what you said it would do – it fixes the soul and the body. The whole experience was simply outstanding, faultless
“Grace is the Best’ when asked why “because it makes mummy happy”
Having a three day detox, looked at from this perspective is not a self indulgence, it is a necessity. We take our cars into the garage for a service to avoid a breakdown, so also should we nurture and love our bodies - and Grace is the ideal place to do this, because it believes in rejuvenation - a place where we can tell our minds to be quiet, to stop the alerts, close down our open windows, find the peace we need to enable us to connect better with our bodies, so that we can live, mind, body and soul more intuitively, more successfully and more completely.
I love Grace. It’s the chicest place in London to strengthen your body, stimulate your brain and feed your soul. Everyone who works there is incredibly nice and incredibly good at what they do. And the food is fab.
A real hidden treasure of Grace is the Grace Medical Facility. I didn't have to search high and low looking for doctors in my new city thanks to Grace staff doctors and medical professionals. Grace introduced me to Dr. Amalia Annaradnam, whom I like and trust. My husband is a client of Grace Medical and he is thrilled with with Dr. Tim Evans. Grace Medical makes me feel safe and comfortable knowing I have excellent doctors to call on when I need them.
Kate (CEO of Grace Belgravia) recently asked me if there was anything Grace could be doing better. I was at a loss. I couldn't think of one thing I would change. Grace is the most valuable "friend" I have made since moving to London. Thank you Grace for being a positive influence on my life and for helping me reach my healthy life goals.
Three Words: My Saving Grace
Grace has quite honestly changed my life. I have never met people so dedicated to making me happy and healthy and listened to!! I have not only lost pounds and look and feel better than I have in years, I have learned to live a healthy life in the notoriously unhealthy lifestyle of a city. Grace is the most fabulous place, it is otherworldly and I feel every person I encounter wants nothing but the best for me. Grace embodies health and well being in the most sublime environment. Grace makes me want to go to the gym, eat vegetables, and take care of myself. Grace has combined the most talented group of people in London and I never want to leave. I feel so lucky to have discovered this oasis and it is one of the most spoiling places I have ever encountered.
My massage was the best treatment I've ever had anywhere in the world. If every human could access Monica's treatment there would be world peace.
"Grace transformed her life"
“I don’t know what I’m going to do without Grace over the summer” and “I’m in love with Milly, her facials are amazing”
As mentioned over the phone - ”The vegan menu choice is just perfect for me. I truly enjoy it.
Special favourites are today's wheat free ciabatta bread, which was white and soft, and fab with avocado”
“I like the fact that the food does not have any garlic or onions or heavy spices and one feels completely comfortable to carry to a public area and be conscious of no strong smells!”
“It also follows the ayurvedic principle of Sattivic pure food”
“The talk about Afghanistan this evening was fascinating.”
“I have been doing so much! Usually I dread coming back to London in September but I am so excited about coming back to Grace….!!!!”
I have been looking for a place like this all of my life. I have travelled the world and nowhere has got it so right as Grace.
Our lives could be characterised by any number of concentric circles but to put it simplistically the inner circle represents ME at its core: my spirituality, my beliefs and values, my inner peace, and ultimately how I view myself, who I am and how I aspire to be. I suppose everything starts from there. The second circle consists of my relationships with those who are close to me: my children, spouse or partner, my parents and siblings and my closest friends, all those relationships which help me define myself and develop/evolve and who define me as a mother, daughter, spouse, friend, etc.
Finally the third/outer circle consists of colleagues, broader friendship groups, acquaintances, people we interact with in the course of our daily lives, etc, basically the outer world.
Without the awareness of how important that inner core is, we can spend most of our time and energy focused on the the second and outer circle. A life lived gracefully, [with grace], presumes a degree of serenity in how we project ourselves through these concentric circles. It implies an inner equilibrium in terms of how we face challenging situations in life. This is where your Club Concept comes in: you have created a space which mirrors the peace and serenity of our inner circle and allows us to retreat to that space to nurture it. And the nurturing cannot be purely spiritual, it also entails taking care of ourselves physically, emotionally, intellectually. With all that Grace offers, in terms of its customised personal training programs, book clubs, Ayurvedic weeks, spa & wellbeing services, and medical expertise, all this is allowed to happen simultaneously. At its essence, the Grace concept allows our outer beauty to be a reflection of how good we feel about ourselves.
