further, this is an uplifting slightly decadent and necessary experience.
ARNICA BODY WRAP
60 Minutes for aches and pains
A hot foot soak in volcanic mineral salts with menthol begins a treatment that aims to give relief
for general aches and pains. Arnica Crème is used in a massage to release the deep tensions held in
the spine and muscles of the back and then applied as a body mask to offer cooling muscle relief to
tense muscles. A scalp or foot massage enhances this treatment. Your therapist will focus on areas
of muscular distress upon request and according to consultation.

orange softens and prepares the skin for a deeply focused relaxing massage with a Santa Maria
Novella candle wax made of pure plant oils and prime emollient butters. Lit as a normal candle the
wax begins to melt to body temperature and is buffed and layered into the skin with the low and
delicate warm scent of spice.
The candle within its ceramic Santa Maria Novella candle holder is given at the end of treatment
to continue the experience at home.
