L'Ultime Day Spa
In the olden days, nomads and royalty alike made pilgrimages to the lowest point on earth: the Dead Sea. The vitamin-rich waters, which are roughly six times saltier than the ocean, had a therapeutic effect on bathers, dissolving stress, boosting metabolism, and brightening skin tones. Nowadays, the same benefits can be had without a trip to Jerusalem, thanks to L’Ultime Day Spa’s mud wraps, which tighten skin and detoxify systems with the sea’s salt and mud. A team of massage therapists can also relax muscles with kneads customized to each client, in styles that range from Swedish and deep tissue to reflexology, which focuses exclusively on the hands and feet. They can even ply the physique with reiki, energy work that stimulates the body’s self-healing powers without also activating its self-cloning powers.
