Though spa treatments are, by nature, customized to each client, URA The Spa takes its treatments one step further, with a holistic approach and a focus on natural healing. It's evident in the name?"URA"?an ancient Celtic letter representing the heather plant. This flora was used to symbolize qualities such as generosity and healing. As for how the spa manifests this mindset, the first step is bathing visitors in a calm atmosphere created by bright pastel colors and plush furnishings. The next steps come in the form of the services. Adept, gentle hands administer ayurvedic wraps and energy therapy alongside med-spa treatments that correct specific skin issues. Custom massages soothe tense muscles, while facials and enzyme-rich peels cleanse and exfoliate. To perform these services, the staff relies on natural formulas from a private-label product line and by brands such as Shir-Organic, Color Science, and SkinMedica.
