From Bamboo Fusion to a Peppermint Sea Twist, The Spa At Couples Resorts Has It All
Spa services vary depending on where you go; however, all services have physical and emotional benefits. A service at the spa offers benefits such as stress relief, mental relaxation, weight loss, detoxification, and managing of body pain. So, if you’re on vacation at Couples Resorts and are feeling a bit battered, stressed and in need of some extra relaxation, head over to the Oasis Spa; rated by Travel & Leisure in the Top 25 Spas in the Caribbean in their 2012 World’s Best Awards. In fact, Couples Resorts were the ONLY all-inclusive spas to make the list. Therefore, you can be assured that you will receive only the best in spa services from this family of 5 star all inclusive resorts.
Each of our four award-winning Couples Resorts’ spas finds unique ways to immerse you in the spirit of its gorgeous setting. Four resorts, four different treatment styled rooms, but all have one thing in common…. experienced therapists offering exceptional service and the best in products, both local and international. Couples Resorts exclusively uses Repechage products during their treatments which cater only to the finest resorts and spas worldwide. No matter what your choice of treatment from the lavish menus available from the salon or spa, you are guaranteed excellent results. Two of the popular choices we will highlight today are the Bamboo Fusion Massage and the Peppermint Sea Twist Body Wrap; taking you from the heated moments of a massage to the cooling effects of a wrap.
The Bamboo Fusion Massage combines Swedish-massage techniques with benefits of relaxing, soothing heat from bamboo rods. The rods are hand-crafted and shaped to glide smoothly over the body with oil or cream once they are warm. Your masseuse will then use the rods to roll and knead away aches and pains with repetitive movements. Once the warmth of the bamboo rods touches your skin, the restoration begins and you are left with this sense of total relaxation with the stresses of life exiting your body as a feeling of peace takes over.
Benefits of bamboo massages:
• Relieves tightness in muscles and tendons
• Promotes an extreme sensation of relaxation and well-being
• Revitalizes and regenerates aching/tired muscles
• Great technique for effective deep tissue massage
From the bed of the warm bamboo rods, we’ll now explore the effects of the body wrap; two different treatments, but both very relaxing. The Peppermint Sea Twist is an aromatic, body shaping treatment that combines peppermint oil with fresh marine seaweed which works to stimulate, rejuvenate, and invigorate. Once covered in the mummy-like wrap (shown below), circulation will improve as the treatment begins to detoxify the body, thus ridding it of unwanted toxins while also nourishing the skin. Don’t be alarmed when your body starts to feel a mixture of sensations, from heat to a tingling sensation from the peppermint, as this is normal with any body wrap. After completing this treatment you emerge with a cool, relaxed and invigorating feeling. You may also feel a few pounds lighter from the removal of all the toxins. A body wrap may take up to forty minutes to complete, before a seaweed cream is applied to invigorate the skin, close pores and give skin a nice finishing touch.
Benefits of a Peppermint Sea Twist:
• Slims the body
• Stimulates the senses
• Purifies the skin
• Improves circulation; making it an ideal treatment for cellulite reduction
• Soothes sore, aching muscles
• Water retention of collagen which can lead to a more youthful appearance
