Getting away spells a lot of indulgence. The problem? Well, all the indulgence! We're all for a bit of fabulous food and fine cocktails while on vacation, but sometimes you may want to balance it out with a bit of well-being. Here's a roundup of some great getaway options that also have a wellness slant.
This is new age relaxation via gemstone therapy. The spa includes rich woods, Italian mosaics, sand marble and expansive water features over black granite to create a calming atmosphere. Every trip to Gem Spa begins with a complimentary 120-minute, 10-step hydrotherapy ritual to prepare the body for a healing experience. Some of the most zen-worthy spa treatments include:
- Mayan Jade Massage: Two therapists inspire a double dose of calm by massaging the body with jade stones, known in the Mayan culture to bring peace to the mind and body
- Asian Journey Foot Treatment: Using the traditional methods of Thai massage, this treatment incorporates finger pressure over energy pathways combined with stretching to release blockage
- Amber and Gold Regenerating Facial: An indulgent treatment that begins with an aromatherapy head and neck massage followed by the use of healing amber gems. The invigorating properties of the gold and amber help counteract the effects of fatigue, tension and stress in the skin.
