So I loved my first treatment so much I went back for more the next
day. Looking for a treatment to help with my tired muscles I opted for
the Muscle Therapy Seaweed wrap. A 100 minute dream!
winning big in the casino the night before, I arrived over an hour
early and forked over the extra $30 to use the hydra-therapy center.
Best decision ever! The front desk staff took me in and found me a
locker, after a shower and change I started in. First I headed over to
the steam room to detox and loosen up. It had the usual peppermint and
eucalyptus scents, with long benches to relax. After 20 minutes there I
headed back to the shower and then the plunge pool. A large, jetted
bathtub with freezing water in it. Perfect for my tired legs, but a bit
jolting. It would turn out to be my new favorite addiction. After the
plunge I headed back to the steam room for another 20 minutes and
another shower. This time instead of the regular shower I used the
"tropical shower" a luke warm rain with lights and jungle sound... a
little weird but nice. The sun was starting to set and I wanted a good
view of the sail out of Kooper, so I headed over to the dry sauna.
One whole wall was covered in windows that overlooked the perfect
view and sunset. After some time in the sauna I did another round of the
tropical shower another plunge and then sat in the whirlpool until my
therapist came to fetch me.
I was brought back to the
same room and given the usual instructions. My therapist was a nice kid
from Spain named Sergio. He started with the dry brush and application
of the seaweed. Surprisingly not that bad smelling and it had a very
interesting icy hot quality. After I was completely covered in it, I
was wrapped in tin foil and blankets to heat up. And I did, I have
never been in such a furnace of a body wrap. I almost tapped out but
thankfully I fell asleep instead. As I cooked in my tin foil furnace,
Sergio gave a fabulous scalp massage and then moved to my feet. I must
have been asleep for quite some time since I came awake at the sound of
bells. Sergio had already started the shower and removed the heavy
covers. He helped me sit up (not easy when you are wrapped like a
mummy) and maneuver to the shower. Where he left me to peel off the tin
foil and wash off the seaweed. This is where I discovered my favorite
new body wash. The Elemis Skin Nourishing Shower Cream. A
soft, creamy and foaming body wash that completely removed the hard to
get seaweed and left my skin super soft. It has a nice baby powder
scent and really feels amazing. After my shower I toweled off and got
back on the bed. Where I was treated to the most amazing massage ever
with the muscle ease body oil. I awoke again to the sound of bells and a
glass of water.
Overall an amazing treatment... so great that I booked it again for the next day, but with a little twist.
Plus... amazing views, great water rituals, and super relaxing... just what I was looking for,
Not so plus... falling asleep... super embarrassing.
