Cupping Aromatherapy Massage

Recently launched at The Ritz-Carlton Spa New York, NoMad, the 90-minute Cupping Aromatherapy Massage is a deeply relaxing experience that increases circulation and eases low back pain, leading to less inflammation and muscle tension. The massage uses modern cupping techniques with silicone cups, applied with a gentle, gliding motion. The cupping is combined with a skin-loving blend of rich therapeutic oils, so guests walk away with decreased signs of aging and skin imperfections, as well. 

Summer Rain

Based in San Antonio, Texas, Mokara Hotel & Spa offers exclusive cooling treatments, which are best enjoyed in the summer months. Summer Rain is a refreshing and invigorating experience, comprised of a full-body massage under cascading water from innovative showers. The treatment is enhanced with hydrating body butter, leaving clients' skin feeling silky smooth and renewed. 

Páak'am Experience

Offered at SE Spa at Grand Velas Riviera Maya, the Páak'am Experience features emollient-rich prickly pear cactus native to Mexico for its hydrating, anti-inflammatory and skin-firming benefits. The treatment begins with a traditional Mayan blessing honoring the elements, followed by a gentle body exfoliation using a sunflower cactus scrub.

After a rinse in the in-room shower, the therapist massages the guest with a light rosemary oil and warm, malleable nopales pads, which release vitamins A, D, E and K into the skin. Post-treatment, guests enjoy a detox shot of spinach, cactus, cucumber, pineapple and lime served with a fruit skewer.

Mind: Art of Wellness Massage

The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman offers the MIND Art of Wellness Massage, a transformative treatment that creates a state of pure bliss. It brings guided breathing and visualization together with a therapeutic salt stone and rose quartz crystal massage, which releases physical tension and relaxes the mind to embrace the art of letting go. The unique service brings healing and wellness to the mind, body and soul.
