Peninsula Ceremonies – Signature Body Treatments (90 minutes):
This array of treatment ceremonies, especially designed for The Peninsula Spa, is intricate, sophisticated, and holistic. Begin with a Peninsula Tea Ceremony, an in-depth consultation, and a fresh ginger foot buff to promote spiritual grounding. A salt and oil body scrub follows, before warm oils are poured onto the body and hot volcanic basalt lava stones are used for intensive massage. Jade stones massaged on the forehead and scalp refresh the skin and restore tonicity. Herbal concentrates blended with heated body masks of oshadi clay, marine algae, or mud are smoothed on, and the body cocooned in natural linens. Acupressure facial massage helps revitalise the skin, and peace of mind is achieved with a luxurious Oriental head massage.
Ayurvedic Influence – Chakra Balancing with Volcanic Stones (90 minutes):
An herbal tea infusion and foot cleansing ritual begin the ceremony. Skin brushing, exfoliation and an express facial begin the treatment. Specific placement of volcanic stones on the energy centers achieves new balance and grounding. A total body massage with aromatherapy oils and Ayurvedic herbal concentrate rebalance and re-energise.
Detoxifier Massage (50 or 80 minutes):
Detoxifying body oil is used with a blend of citrus oils, which have natural diuretic properties to flush away toxins.
Destressor Massage (50 or 80 mintues):
Specially blended soothing aromatherapy oils are used, which have relaxing and calming properties to help guests destress.
Jet-Lag Eliminator Massage (50 or 80 minutes):
This treatment helps to rebalance energy levels by lifting spirits with energising oil and relaxing the body into untroubled sleep with soothing oils.
