NEW SPA THERAPIES
THAT ARE A REAL GEM
Incorporating jewels into the therapies that you
offer is a gem of an idea to generate interest in
your spa treatment menu. And two international
spa operators have done just this.
Last July, the Amara spa in Dubai’s Park Hyatt
hotel introduced rituals based on the jewels of
Arabia, which feature fi ne mists of pure gold, for
cell rejuvenation, or silver, to support immunity.
A massage is then given using oils infused with
diamonds, emeralds, rubies or sapphires.
Then in Shanghai, CHI, the Spa at Pudong
Shangri-La, unveiled its Jade Jewel Facial. In the
facial, which has been inspired by ancient Chinese
and traditional Himalayan principles, a customised
CHI jade piece is employed to massage the face,
along with a bioactive treatment ingredient –
golden caviar. This substance is said to activate
cell metabolism and skin microcirculation to
reduce the signs of ageing.
