House of Kalmar is hidden away in a discrete mews house, found down a pretty, cobbled street in Belgravia. The pink bench outside is the sign that you have arrived.
As I’m ushered inside, the walls are also painted a
bright pink, and I immediately feel at home. What a lovely spot. Upstairs in the peaceful treatment room, I’m encouraged to take a seat on the velvet sofa and choose from four options of how I’d like to feel after the treatment. My choice was ‘Rebalanced, composed, feeling stillness, clarity and ease.’ Then I had to choose which chakra needed more attention; I went for: ‘Root grounding, survival, stability, comfort, safety.’
Set up to welcome one guest at a time, House of Kalmar is luxurious, soothing and quiet. Created by founder and spiritual healer Karen Ruimy in collaboration with award-winning energy healer Sinéad de hÓra, House of Kalmar is a holistic wellbeing brand that creates treatments and products to instantly lift your energy and mood. The idea is to reconnect yourself with four emotions (or ‘soul states’) of Joy, Calm, Peace and Love. As it happened, I had chosen Calm. Given the year I’ve had, this comes as no surprise to me at all.
