There is a reason spas are set up in hushed, low-lit lounge areas. They are designed to make you feel swaddled, to provide comfort and security. You can re-create this spa effect in your home or bedroom with just a few of the quick and easy steps below.
Use Neutral Tones
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.
This Friday, April 12th and Saturday, April 13th, Miraval will be hosting a skin care representative from Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ from 2-7pm in our Life in Balance Spa. With over 12 years of clinical aesthetic experience, Toni Lind will answer any skin-related questions you may have. Sessions include a private consultation, education on the latest treatments that deliver immediate clinical results, and a mini facial customized to your skin's needs.
For those not at Miraval this weekend, we asked Dr. Dennis Gross to give us some quick tips on how to best protect your skin for the warm summer weather. Enjoy!
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!
