Gifts for the
Spa Enthusiast

The best gifts are those that the recipient would never have thought to give to themself. So what do you do when the person youre gifting is a spa enthusiast? Clearly, the perfect present is a Spafinder Gift Certificate, but how can you switch it up to give them a brand new twist on a solid go-to? Here are some unique spa gifts for the spa enthusiast.

Shirodhara

Shirodhara

Part of Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, Shirodhara is a unique treatment that any spa enthusiast will find interesting. A thin, steady stream of warm, herb-infused oil is poured onto the center of the forehead runs from a copper funnel that hangs overhead; the therapist may move the apparatus so the oil falls in small circles or figure eights, and the oil runs off your forehead into your hair. Fans say it is profoundly relaxing, but purists regard it much more seriously. Ayurveda holds that the center of the forehead is the seat of intuition.

Four Hand Massage

Four Hand Massage

Spa enthusiasts will have tried nearly every type of massage on the spa menu but massage can be made new by adding some hands; whoever said too many cooks spoil the pot never experienced a four hand massage! Spa enthusiasts can use their Gift Certificates towards this treatment, where two therapists work on one client simultaneously. Plus, it"s known to be an effective option for those who find it hard to relax completely during a treatment.

Watsu

Watsu

Watsu takes place in a warm pool, in which the therapist supports you as you float. This type of aquatic massage is designed to be something of a dance, as your therapist twirls and sways you through the water while administering rhythmic movements, stretches and techniques like pressure-point massage. Those in need of a bit of gentle kneading will enjoy using their Spafinder Gift Certificate on this massage because it"s designed to relieve stress, muscle tension and pain.

Luxury Facials

Luxury Facials

"Champagne dreams and caviar wishes" aren"t just for the Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, they can also be the perfect facial components for your spa aficionado, who can use their Gift Certificate towards luxury facials featuring caviar, champagne and even gold! Gold extract is said to reawaken the skin"s natural defense and anti-aging mechanisms while increasing the circulation, accelerating cell renewal and improving skin"s elasticity. Pure gold is one of the most mineral-rich and easily absorbed substances - a beauty secret Cleopatra and the Mayans kept under wraps, but one you can gift through a Spafinder Gift Certificate!
