We are so excited to announce that the first ever Deborah Lippmann Salon will be opening inside Miraval's Life in Balance Spa on October 1, 2013. This collaboration brings high fashion nail lines together with the Miraval touch to create one-of-a-kind nail care rituals offered only at Miraval. The new decadent services, developed under this partnership empower a unique nail and skin health assessment that customizes your manicure or pedicure to promote long-lasting nail health with beauty.
NEW Services from Deborah Lippmann and Miraval:
Deborah Lippmann Signature Manicure
Our Miraval Manicure has set a new standard for healthy nail care. To leave your nails stronger, smoother, and more hydrated we begin with a nail analysis to properly address your specific nail needs. Let your senses escape to the tropics as your hands and arms are smoothed using a grapefruit and sea salt scrub to refine the skin. Further enhancing the silkiness, your arms and hands are massaged with a warm blend of vitamin E, pure white jojoba and coconut oil, relieving dry skin. To seal in moisture, your hands and arms are then massaged with a shea butter and avocado oil hand cream with broad spectrum SPF to help leave you protected from harmful UV rays.
Deborah Lippmann Signature Pedicure
A sweet selection for those who wish to be perfectly pampered, our Signature Pedicure will treat the most overworked feet. Our nail analysis sets this treatment up to specifically address your needs. Begin your pampering with a relaxing foot soak in a rosemary and aloe soaking elixir. A heated leg wrap infused with a blend of vitamin E, pure white jojoba and coconut oil follows your foot soak to further prepare the skin. Our warm grapefruit and sea salt scrub is then applied to exfoliate and soften your feet and legs. To perfect your pedi, we apply a kokum butter and aloe vera nourishing foot cream to smooth and soothe your soles. This pedicure is paired with an Organic African Nectar Tea.
Throughout Miraval's entire 18 year history, we have led the spa industry in innovation. Miraval's team of therapists have trained and studied all over the world and bring their unique expertise to our Miraval guests each day. Clinton Horner has been with Miraval since 1999 and now debuts his exclusive treatment to Miraval guests: Shamana-Karma.
Although we continue to offer signature programs and services to our guests such as The Miraval Equine Experience (which has been around for 17 years), we continue to innovate and introduce new programs and services every month.
February is a special month because it marks the launch of our new culinary clinics. These new clinics were developed by Executive Chef Justin Macy and our Pastry Chef (also his wife!) Kim. We wanted to highlight some of our other new offerings that debut this month. Hope you enjoy!
The Mindful Massage
The SpaFinder Trends Report of 2013 named our new Mindful Massage as one of the trends to watch in 2013.

Glen Griffith, Founder of the Miraval Golf Program, played in the 2013 PGA Phoenix Open last week.
Here's a video of Glen from the tournament:
Glen finished with scores of 72 and 71 - stroke average of 71.5. He birdied 7 out of 36 holes played (19%). We'd like to brag about Glen and share that he finished ahead of one former US Open Champion, one former PGA Championship winner, and 3 regular season PGA Tour winners. Go Glen!
Glen's putting average was 1.636 which was .11 strokes below the PGA Tour average of 1.74 strokes per hole. He ranked 1st for the event in putts made from 15-25 foot range; and, he also ranked first in approach shots from 175-200 yards with an average distance to the pin of 17' 11".
We're so proud of him!
