During the Swedish massage, a therapist works to release muscle tension and stored stress using a combination of five movements: sweeping strokes, tapping, kneading, friction, and vibration. During the facial, a skincare specialist designs a unique set of treatments to smooth wrinkles and create a silky texture, choosing techniques to suit the client's skin type.
Spa at InterContinental LA
Guests linger in an outdoor garden and wade in the waters of a heated pool glowing with reflected sunlight. Some loosen their muscles in the fitness space, whereas others recline, still and peaceful, in an elegant lounge. At Spa at InterContinental LA, clients' relaxation begins before their treatments and continues long after they have finished. The spa invites them to arrive early for appointments to take advantage of the sumptuous facilities, which include a sauna and a eucalyptus steam room used after-hours to make koalas even cuddlier.
The zen atmosphere flows through the entire spa, which is divided into three spacious treatment villas—each with a patio, Kohler Infinity soak tub, and lounge area. Specialists float about the softly lit rooms, performing replenishing facials, relaxing massages, and luxurious manicures and pedicures. The spa technicians specialize in body rituals, comprehensive treatments that combine Oriental, Arabian, and Moroccan techniques to foster relaxation and awaken the body's restorative powers. They begin each ritual with a cleansing, exfoliation, and massage, and then follow with services such as smoothing coconut scrubs or Japanese body cleanses.
