New Year’s resolutions tend to be somewhat pragmatic.
After a long season of celebration, we rebalance our budgets, pantries, work/life relationships, etc. But Vidanta’s expert esthetician and Wellness Director Svetlana Nadirova knows relaxation isn’t automated—you have to expend the same energy you’d devote elsewhere in life to the self-caring projects of refreshment, renewal, and rejuvenation. And if you’re going to relax, why not do so in style? Nadirova gave us an exclusive inside look at which spa treatments are redefining restoration and luxury in the new year.
The Therapeutic Reductive Massage (80 mins.)
You may not believe it, but you can combat overindulgence with…more indulgence. This treatment works to eliminate localized fat and redefine your body’s natural contours with stronger, faster pressure than a conventional massage typically affords. For best results, schedule consecutive sessions and watch your ideal silhouette take shape.
Aromacure Massage Therapy (80 mins.)
Take a deep breath in. Aromatherapy’s benefits are well-documented and wide-ranging, from strengthening the immune system, to reducing pain, to improving digestion and increasing circulation. Adding an olfactory dimension to your usual massage can also reduce anxiety and boost energy levels—in other words, benefitting precisely those resources the holiday season can leave depleted.
The Diamond Experience Rose Massage (90 mins.)
When was the last time you literally smelled the roses? This combination treatment starts with a smoothing exfoliation, followed by a regenerative massage featuring Damask rose oil, which promises to transport you via scent and sensation. You’ll leave this massage physically polished and psychically renewed.
At Brio Spa:
The Global Anti-Aging Facial (90 mins.)
Hi, it’s the future. In 2018, your facial can retrain your actual genes to achieve optimal epidermic performance. For guests with more mature skin, this means taking a global approach to skin rejuvenation that considers environmental, biological, and lifestyle factors in order to leave your face plumped, smoothed, and soothed.
The Salt Flower Body Treatment (90 mins.)
According to legend, King Coliman of Cuyutlán Lagoon paid tribute to the Aztec emperor with a precious natural treasure: salt. This exquisite exfoliating treatment turns back in time to “flower salts,” which melt in the heat of organic Baobab oil, to elicit optimal, multisensory relaxation. Your skin will be exfoliated, hydrated, and finally treated to a luxurious hot stone massage, making this treatment a triple threat of full-body wellness.
