For nearly a decade, certified aesthetician Grisel Peguero has turned to the bottom of the ocean to foster healthy, glowing complexions. But rather than relying on the skin-sloughing properties of suckerfish, she looks to seaweed and mud: two ingredients that make an appearance during her restorative facials and detoxifying body wraps. Grisel also employs hot paraffin wax to naturally hydrate the skin, as well as essential oils—derived from Mother Nature's personal garden—to ease tension and aches during aromatherapy massages.
An oasis is a retreat from the everyday, a safe haven from stress and negativity. The therapists at Enomis Oasis Spa strive to cultivate a similarly serene environment and invite their clients to enjoy pampering treatments in a state of complete relaxation. Detoxification services, such as colonics, ionic footbaths, and steam baths, work to deport impurities from this republic of respite, whereas acupuncture, reiki, and reflexology help keep energy levels balanced.
