Therapists to lie for

Friday 29 September 2006

Italy

Everyone loves Dipu, not least Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz and all the Italian film stars, politicians and models who submit their starry selves to his powerful touch. Dipu is the nickname for Kuldeepak Kathait, the Indian-born, Italian-raised Ayurvedic practitioner and star of this luxury spa, which makes its own range of products from the local thermal muds. Emma Bartlett, who with her sister started the spa company Essential Escapes, is among his many fans. "I know lots of OK therapists, some very good ones, but none who stands out quite as much as Dipu. He gives the most amazing, strong massage, and he's such an empathetic person you leave feeling really uplifted," she said.
