It's fitting that so many of the clients at White Orchid Spa are tourists—the 6,000-square-foot space resides in the AAA four-diamond Vero Beach Hotel—since a visit to the spa is a journey unto itself. After donning robes and sandals, visitors can select one of 12 therapeutic and medical massages, which incorporate seashells, warmed bamboo shoots, and ylang-ylang flower oil. Massages aren't the only service enhanced with natural touches: Aestheticians also use sulfate-free Éminence products and other organic ingredients in body treatments, including scrubs and wraps blended with Dead Sea mud and green-tea extract, 10 types of facial treatments, and mani-pedis that soften the skin with a black-sesame scrub. Guests can take advantage of a salon complete with bridal services and eyelash extensions as well as the facility's med-spa treatments—from dermal fillers that smooth or plump skin to VelaShape treatments that reduce the appearance of cellulite and bumps that might just be clinging koalas.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Sun-starved hides can jump-start their glows with a Mystic spray tan. Employing MagneTan technology, Mystic’s mist adheres to skin suits evenly and streaklessly using the body's natural magnetic properties and innate force fields, leaving it bronzed and beautiful for five to seven days. Complement sunny hues with a 20-minute session atop the Hydro-Massage bed, which applies heat and water pressure to vital pressure points in order to rejuvenate tired muscles and relieve stress. Smooth bumpy terrain and trim your silhouette with a relaxing spin in the SlimCapsule, designed to burn up to 500 calories in a single 30-minute session using the dry heat generated by LED technology. A sweltering experience superior to sauna sessions or afternoons on a desert moon, the slimming treatment pampers clients with a vibratory massage, aromatherapy, ionized air, and a cooling fan.
Sheer beauty is simple to attain at Energy Spa & Salon, where a diverse case of beauticians and spa specialists doll up clients with an array of services for the hair, skin, and nails. Overgrown manes receive makeovers at the hands of experienced stylists, who use Paul Mitchell products as they cut, condition, and color strands. A master aesthetician armed with Eminence skincare products smoothes out skin with facials, microdermabrasion, and waxing sessions. Visitors can also get a fresh-off-the-beach look by stepping into an automated Mystic HD spray booth or laying down in a traditional UV-tanning bed. Aches and tension fall by the wayside after Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
