Not all massages are the same, and at Aqua Sana we have wide range to choose from.
Firm or gentle, rejuvenating or relaxing? Aqua Sana spa is home to an array of massages to indulge in, some you may have heard of but some you may not have, so here’s our handy guide to help you choose which one is right for you.
A hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy. Smooth, flat, heated stones can be placed on specific parts of your body and used to by your therapist as they massage your body. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat. The benefits are they help you relax and ease tense muscles, reduce stress and anxiety and aid sleep.
Exclusive to Aqua Sana, the Elemis Brighten and Glow face and body treatment is designed as an all-over body massage, combining a facial with a warm frangipani oil and hot stone massage. This whole body experience is the perfect massage choice if you want to de-stress from everyday life and fall into a deep state of relaxation.
Similar to the Hot Stones massage this is an indulgent back massage that combines the warmth of shells with deeply relaxing massage techniques to create the ultimate sense of balance in the body and mind. The lava shells are worked over your back, neck and shoulders to ease away your tension, knots and any stress in slow deep motions to warm and relax.
Or try the Lava Shells Recovery Massage, a deep targeted massage that combines warm Lava shells and cool Glacial shells to leave you feeling invigorated.
New to Aqua Sana our Bamboo massage uses bamboo sticks of different lengths and diameters to give a deep tissue massage to leave you with a profound sense of relaxation, inner wellbeing and serenity. If you lead an active lifestyle this is the perfect massage for you as it works deep into the tissue to soften and break down your muscle tension.
Aromatherapy massage is a massage therapy that uses essential oils (highly concentrated plant oils) added to the massage oil or lotion. The combination helps to soothe away muscular tension and improve circulation, and can be either deeply relaxing or uplifting, depending on the oils and massage techniques used by the therapist.
Picture this: in Decléor’s Total Aromatherapy Escape warm aromatic balms are drizzled gently over your entire body, followed by a deeply de-stressing body massage. It’s - a divinely indulgent treatment for the ultimate relaxation.
Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage. It can be slow and gentle, or vigorous and bracing, depending on what you and your therapist feel would be best for you.
Concentrating on your whole body it is designed to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. The Swedish massage is recommended after a day of sport or simply as a means to relax, reducing stress both emotionally and physically. Perfect for those first time spa goers.
