The Most Relaxing Spa Treatments at Day Spas in Miami
Miami’s heat and humidity are reasons enough to escape to the spa on a warm, overbearing day which would otherwise promise the usual suntanning at the beach that goes from relaxing to exhausting in a second. And, while the spa might be synonymous with hot stones and facials, there are many more new, trendy treatments that are waiting to be tested and embraced. Given that Miami is home to more than 60 spas, there’s no reason not to take a detour from your day-to-day routine to give your body some much needed TLC.
The New (and Improved) Massage
If you love massages, but you’re a bit tired of your old routine and you’re looking on the other side to see if the grass is greener, you’re in luck. Creative massages are all the rave in Miami right now.
Going from Bamboo Fusion massages, which use freshly cut bamboo stalks to melt the pains away, to the ever relaxing Craniosacral massage, which can be enjoyed at Bellezza Salon and Spa and which works on the central nervous system to reduce stress and relieve pain, new styles of massages which focus on unconventional materials, but also age-long techniques with a contemporary twist, are to be found all around Miami.
Spas might be a modern invention, but treatments used in a salon are sometimes infused with ancient wisdom. With this in mind, Miami is walking on the wild side of time and choosing spas that are getting in touch with their relaxation ancestors.
Ayurvedic Therapy, used to restore inner calm and the delicate balance between the body and the mind, involves being cocooned in a comfy wrap and having a continuous stream of herbal infused oils directed to the third eye chakra, on the forehead.
A 60-minute Thai on the Table massage combines Thai yoga stretches and compression which loosens and lengthens your core, while also tightening your muscles.
The Asian Influence
Theres nothing like a visit to the East to get our bodies and minds calmed. Famous for their relaxation therapies and treatments, Asian countries like Thailand, Laos and Tibet are a go-to destination for spa aficionados.
But you don’t need to get on a plane for the Asian treatment. Day spas in Miami are known for their Oriental-inspired treatments, from massages to purifying baths and saunas. And the options are great: try a Mandarin Oriental Treatment, a Traditional Thai Massage with lemongrass and warm herbal pouches or an Oriental Essence Ceremony, which makes your skin smoother than ever.
A European Vibe
Europe is known for its culture and history, but its unique beauty traditions are what we’re more interested in. While the East is usually the star of the spa show, the unique nations of Europe have many relaxation therapies which have crossed the oceans and borders and have become established in spas across the globe. Just think of Swedish massages!
A French Body Polish, like Bellezza Salon and Spa offers, uses an invigorating body gommage to cleanse away dead skin cells and leave your derm looking and feeling fresh and smooth. A Vichy Massage soothes and invigorates the body, a European Spa Manicure and Pedicure will get your hands and nails moisturized and healthy, while a Finnish Sauna can be a perfect way to end your day at the spa, as it relaxes and gets you ready for anything that may come your way.
Exotic ingredients are almost expected in a spa, but how about more homely treatments that you would not expect. Turns out, some of the most nutritious ingredients can be easily sourced. But spas give are giving a luxurious twist by combining them into soothing treatments.
Honey and Milk Manicures and Pedicures leave the skin soft and hydrated, while Soy Scrubs are packed with Vitamin E and amino acids which gently remove dead skin, nourish and hydrate.
A Coconut Lime Pedicure is a good tonifying and restorative option, while a Carrot and Sesame Body Buff is the ultimate skin softening cocktail.
When in Miami, don’t miss the spa to get a quick fix of relaxation. Focus on your favorite treatments, but keep an open mind. You might find that the new, trendy ones aren’t just about the hype.
