Mind, body, and soul merit equal attention at Spa de la Vie, where therapists pair a holistic approach with a meticulous eye for detail. In line with their focus on results, the spa?s certified consultants begin each massage, and body wrap with an in-depth analysis that helps them discern the most suitable treatment for each visitor.
While devising a treatment plan to complement skin type and beauty goals, the spa?s staff sets the stage for relaxation with complimentary slippers, robes, and herbal neck wraps. Technicians take care not to disturb burgeoning states of serenity as they gently slather skin with all-natural products during body wraps that exfoliate skin and highlight natural contours. Therapists employ a similarly tender touch as they treat backs and shoulders to massage techniques culled from eight modalities. Their menu of services includes prenatal massages for expectant mothers and the option to add a 20-minute reflexology session for feet prone to protesting their soreness by stomping on the surfaces of icy lakes.
