The HVN

Primely located a stone’s throw away from Harrods, The HVN is an urban sanctuary with an elevated take on ‘conscious wellbeing’ and an expert-led team of therapists and medical practitioners.

Taking a 360-degree approach, the space focuses on top-to-toe wellness, combining pioneering research with ancient-inspired holistic rituals. Personalised programs encompass everything from healing to gut health and osteopathy, making sure each client is at their absolute best.

The space, which features its own hyperbaric chamber and an area dedicated to giving educational talks and workshops, is also home to the UK’s only Hydro Bed.

The Cocoon Room within the HVN uses the Hydro Bed as part of one of the concept’s signature treatments to instantly relieve aching muscles and tension, creating a uniquely relaxing and reviving experience.

As you sit on the water-filled mattress of the bed, it reaches a soothing temperature of 38 degrees as a therapist whisks you away on an experiential journey of Ayurvedic massage, a mud exfoliation, steam (cleverly generated by the Hydro Bed) and a Vichy rain shower all without moving an inch off the bed.

The result – polished skin and an undeniable sense of restorative relaxation, bliss.
