When visiting Moscow for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, even the most ardent of football fans will have a day or two free for rest and recuperation. From body conditioning to teeth whitening, the country’s capital offers a wealth of wellbeing and aesthetic treatments to keep supporters match fit for the big tournament.   ENCORE FITNESS

Arguably the best-appointed fitness space in Moscow, Encore takes up a massive 3900m² of the city’s OKO skyscraper for its nine fitness zones, which include a 25m pool, martial arts area and reformer Pilates studio. Members looking to relax after a challenging workout can choose from steam bath, traditional hammam, snow room, bio sauna, salt bath, Finnish sauna – or just kick back in the lounge area in the Yamaguchi massage chairs.   NONNA BRENNER

Those visiting Moscow for an exciting summer of football would be wise to swing by one of the city’s most luxurious pharmacies to stock up on the herbal drops of Dr Nonna Brenner, from the famed Austrian wellness retreat. The range of extracts improve the immune system, protect from allergy and increase cell energy, through various combinations of succinic acid, polyphenolic compounds and flavonoids.   INSMILE

This cosmetic dentist is Moscow’s one-stop shop for those looking to render their smile more appealing. There’s a menu of six tooth whitening treatments on offer – five of which last less than two hours – or one longer-term option of a seven-day veneer process. The more adventurous customer can plump for a decorative grill, made of gold and gems – perfect for celebrating with a smile when one’s team triumphs.   BIKRAM YOGA MOSCOW

With two studios in the city, Bikram Yoga offers a full range of facilities for seasoned practitioners and beginners alike. The rooms are specially heated to the optimum temperature for practice, with mats and towels for hire and well-appointed locker rooms with showers. Guests can relax after a session with a fresh juice from the smoothie bar.   VERBA MAYR

If weight loss or long-term rejuvenation is a priority, there is no better place to visit than the Moscow outpost of the Verba Mayr Centre for Health. Set amidst a restful, picturesque forest, the centre offers a diagnosis, then a range of residential detox, healing and cleansing programmes tailored specifically to each individual.
