30-45 min 

Single $110

Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction may facilitate healing with blood flow.

Proponents also claim the suction helps facilitate the flow of “qi” in the body. Qi is a Chinese word meaning life force. Is a fact that cupping helps balance yin and yang, or the negative and positive, within the body. Restoring balance between these two extremes is thought to help with the body’s resistance to pathogens as well as its ability to increase blood flow and reduce pain.

Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.

The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.

3hrs /Sea Salt Bath, Peloid Body Wrap, Massage, Facial

Couples $420

Peloids consist of humus and minerals formed over many years by geological and biological, chemical and physical processes. Peloidotherapy involves dissolved and highly mineralized, purified therapeutic mud or peat in water and applying to the body as a thermal therapy. The fresh mud is rich in decomposed aquatic plants.  Imagine relaxing back into a luxurious bath of clean mineralised ocean water. Floating effortlessly in a soothing and tranquil state, your skin feels smooth and renewed. Breathe deeply and sense the tension, aches, and pains merely slip away: an ideal way to unwind any time. Followed by a full body marine peloid wrap to increase the blood circulation, relieve the signs of tiredness and is an excellent way to detoxify the body.

Continue this luxury treatment with  a deep tissue Massage that involves working on the body with pressure, aiming to manipulate the superficial and deep layers of muscle and connective tissue using our unique capsaicin balm which comes from pepper plants to loosen up tight joints and muscles, improve circulation, and suppress nerve endings that transfer pain signals to the brain. Nothing better to end this  treatment than with a peloid facial to make your skin bright and smooth
