You can send your whole body on summer vacation with a Restorative Deep Tissue Massage—a Miraval exclusive designed to bring peace, balance, and mindfulness to your life during your most stressful times.
This 80-minute, deep-tissue treatment relieves tired muscles and eases fatigue with the aromatic essences of pure plant extracts that were developed in France to smooth, nourish, and detoxify the skin as well as to release excess fluids. Because the treatment is customized, guests are invited to choose their own oils, and the therapist’s touch is determined by your personal needs. Firm, yet gentle, manual pressure can mobilize tissues, activate blood circulation, and enhance cellular communication. The treatment concludes with a super-replenishing body moisturizer designed to counteract the punishing heat and dry air of summer. You’ll emerge from the treatment with your muscles relaxed, your skin rehydrated, and your spirits restored.
This at home treatment idea is featured in Miraval's Mindful Living Book.
Here are the steps to bring this service home with you!
Set the right atmosphere with scented candles and a slow soak in a warm tub to help you relax.
Exfoliate with a product (such as the Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub) designed to help you cast away dull, flaky surface cells and impurities and give your skin a new start. Gently massage onto damp skin, concentrating on rough patches, such as those that tend to be found on the feet and elbows, and then rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel.
Rub a few drops of bodytreatment oil on your damp skin, choosing a scent that pleases you. Gently warming the oil helps with absorption.
Apply a moisture-rich body lotion with long sweeping motions, such as from your ankles to your waist or your wrists to your shoulders.
