There are many ways to approach wellness. Diet, attitude and activity are but three and the following 3 spas support the inclusion of each in their therapies. Each one has a distinct appeal for an aspect of healthy living that is enhanced by their expert approaches.
Located towards the sacred temple of Tanah Lot, the Pan Pacific Nirvana Bali Resort offers a sanctuary of recreation and relaxation and in their spa a natural way to achieve rejuvenation with apples and tomatoes! Using freshly picked home-grown tomatoes, a treatment has been devised that will bring relaxation and renewal to skin.
This treatment is especially good for skin nutrition and anti-aging. It begins with a tomato body scrub that exfoliates and polishes, followed by a luxuriant body wrap and a traditional Balinese massage which uses essential oils infused with the essence of tomatoes. This delightful treatment leaves the body refreshed, energized and healthy and feeling as a bright as a freshly picked tomato, without the redness!
The Nirvana Spa’s Green Apple treatment has the same effect as biting into a crisp green apple, that tingling of healthful energy is absorbed by the whole body and the refreshing sensationof indulging in the 100% pure green apple anti-aging treatments is both obvious and long lasting. The Green Apple treatment combines a full body wrap and a traditional Balinese massage and is completed by a soothing eye treatment. Emerge energized and as fresh as fruit!
The phases of the moon influence the ebb and flow of the Earth’s oceans. Like the oceans, our bodies are also influenced by the phases of the moon. Energies wax and wane in rhythms similar to those of the ocean. At times we need stillness, at others great waves of energy engulf us and inspire us to be active. The Balinese are sensitive to the phases of the moon and it is through this understanding that Oazia have developed their “lunar energy” treatments.
By tuning into your own rhythms you can sense if your body is aligned to the moon’s phases. Choose the treatment that ‘feels’ the best and slowly realign your ‘self’ to the natural planetary cycles.
(Nurture of the Dark Moon)
“An excellent treatment to take when the body needs retreat and the moon is dark. Healing during Tilem can support the core inner strength of the body to make changes both physically and emotionally. Tilem is a time to attend to the soothing of the spirit, working out internal struggles between the conscious and subconscious mind and seeking harmony and balanced flow between the inner and outer psyche”.
It begins with a 4 hand Balinese massage where the rhythm imparts a feeling of support and nurture. Following the massage a fresh fruit body mask is applied that plumps the skin and a final exfoliating scrub with black pepper and sesame seeds makes the skin glow!
(The Light of the Full Moon)
“The ancients of all cultures recognized the power of the full moon, the energy around full moon time is often felt as creative and alive, faster and more connected. The full moon can be a time to lose yourself in activities that revitalize the spirit. ”.
An Oazia Contour massage helps to boost the lymph system and improve blood circulation with a blend of Balinese flowers. After the 90 minute massage the body scrub is applied. It’s made from the fresh zests of grapefruit and lime pounded with raw Karangasem sea salts and mixed with Virgin Coconut oil, this body scrub cleanses and nourishes the skin simultaneously.
(The Richness of growing moon)
“When the moon enlarges our energies expand. We can feel like dancing and singing, even on our own – this treatment celebrates the creative urges within us.”
Oazia recovery massage is used to release tension through intuitive touch. Following the massage the body is painted with a combination of milk, honey and aloe vera gel, then covered in a towel and warming blanket. While the body rests and absorbs the live honey a head massage is given. Warm lava stones are placed at chakra points stimulating the body and balancing energy.
(The Harmony of cleansing moon)
“When the moon becomes smaller the energies at times feel low and it is possible to feel fragile or sensitive. This treatment is perfect to create harmony within”.
An invigorating Balinese massage is given with particular attention to hidden stress. After the 60-minute massage the body is wrapped in mineral rich seaweed that is absorbed into the skin under a wrap of warm towels infused with cleansing peppermint oil and a gentle pressure is applied to the shoulders, arms and legs to encourage relaxation and focus.
