As we wave a very happy goodbye to the brutal winter, it’s time to welcome in the fabulous season of spring – and the best way to do that is by starting fresh and new! “Spring Cleaning” is all about restoring your mind, body, and spirit, so why not kick it up a notch by repairing and de-cluttering your skin as well! We’ve rounded up some seriously rejuvenating spa treatments (and products!) that will leave your mind, body, spirit, and skin feeling completely renewed and invigorated this season!
Spa Treatments for the Mind, Body, and Spirit
At Spa Anjali, the power of renewal is essential. The spa has recently started offering an exclusive set of Chakra Blessings: a collection of ancient rituals designed to free negativity, balance energy and promote an optimal state of wellbeing – the ideal formula for a perfectly-balanced Spring! Spa Anjali’s Chakra Blessings successfully remove energy blocks in the mind and align the energy centers to promote a feeling of wholeness. One of the Chakra Blessings treatments on offer is the Ajna – Peace of Mind Blessing treatment ($225 for 90 minutes), which cleanses the body with a heavenly soak, energizes chakras through a sacred pouring of warm oil and induces a meditative state by focusing on certain marma points of the face using a “light” technique, and ends with a Shirodhara — a warm stream of oil over the forehead, leaving your soul feeling alert and balanced!
Don’t Forget About the Skin!
To help get your skin prepared for the new season, Spa Anjali is also offering a Red Clover & Mountain Honey Body Mask ($185 for 75 minutes), which pampers you with an exfoliating full-body red clover and mountain honey body mask! This remarkable treatment promotes younger looking skin and an overall healthier mentality! The treatment also includes a scalp, hand, and foot massage.
Shower Your Skin in the Splendor of Spring
As we all know, “April showers bring May flowers,” and in the spa and wellness world, “showers” are what it’s all about! This spring, The Spa at Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa is offering its very-own April Vichy Showers treatment during the month of April. This treatment is packed with a Vichy steam shower followed by a vodka basil scrub and completed with a lovely moister balm massage! This special treatment washes your stresses away as it removes worn-out winter skin with an amazing combination of exfoliation and steam leaving your skin completely refreshed, soft, glowing, and hydrated!
Laniwai Spa in Hawaii is even offering an unforgettable Kilikili treatment ($225 for 80 minutes) to its guests this season! The treatment starts off with a customized, exfoliating body polish in the outdoor hydrotherapy garden, Kula Wai. Then, guests can enjoy a Lomilomi massage enhanced with fragrant coconut oil and misting jets of warm water, finished off with wholesome Hawaiian body butter! The Kilikili treatment takes place in Lilinoe, the spa’s very-own private rainwater suite!
