Spa Treatments - Explained

Girls we are providing you a little background on what Spa treatments are available. This will take the guesswork out of what you will experience. Essentially we hope to make it easier for you to decide how you would like to be pampered.

Body Wrap:

It usually starts with an slight exfoliation of your skin and a brief massage. Wraps are usually given as a detox treatment for your skin. You may be wrapped in mud, algae or other exotic agents, make sure ask about this, especially if you have allergies. The agents are rubbed onto your skin, and then you'll be wrapped tight so your body sweats out your impurities. So if you don't mind being wrapped up tight like a mummy, then you'll love the relaxing benefit of a wrap. Once wrapped, you'll get to relax for approximately 15 to 30 minutes. Once unwrapped, you'll get a quick shower either by a hand held hose, or in a stand up shower or in a Vichy shower which is a shower while lying down. Usually hey add in an application of moisturizer and you are left feeling completely relaxed and refreshed.


There generally is a long list of available facials. Everything from treatments for anti-aging to face brightening. Facials can use creams, mud, fresh fruit and even vegetable ingredients. One suggestion is to know your skin type or see a Beauty Therapits first to evaluate your skin type and decide what is best for you. As an example sensitive skin can sometimes be burnt by fruit high in acid. Generally you will have your face cleansed, exfoliated or a mask will be added. You may also receive a facial massage and the treatment is generally completed with the application of a moisturiser. Sometimes you may even get a hand massage as well.


Hot Stone:

These can be beneficial for cartain ailments such as a sore back or fatigued muscles. Enquire about what you would like remedied before agreeing to the treatment. Generally rocks are heated by warm water, and then covered with essential oils and placed in specific areas on your body. These rocks provide pressure to certain pressure points on your body. Your technician can sometimes rotate from hot to cool rocks depending on your advised ailment. Hot Stone treatments are usually combined with a massage to provide your muscles with specificly required attention.

Body Scub:

 A body scrub gives you a complete body exfoliation and can use a multitude of different ingredients. Two commonly used products to exfoliate are sugar and salt, but your spa treatment could include a combination of ingredients to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating not only removes the dead layer of skin, it also boosts your circulation. Generally you will lie on a bed while your therapist gently rubs your skin with an exfoliating product. They will usually exfoliate both sides of your body, and you'll be covered with a towel. You will then be rinsed clean and the treatment will be completed by applying a hydrating moisturizer.
