New Spa Treatment Unravels Aggravating Back Knots

By Michelle Payer

Few internationally acclaimed resorts welcome guests into grand, oceanfront Italian villa-style surroundings with a Spa that’s been recognized with its own individual Forbes Five Star award. An industry gold standard meant for only the top global spas, the prestigious award recognizes the results-oriented treatments, attention to service, extraordinary guest commitment, unsurpassed therapist quality, and luxurious surroundings found in this serene sanctuary.

Always on the cutting edge of creating the newest, most effective treatments that will benefit Acqualina’s discerning, clientele, Spa Director Catherine Davalle has introduced the Stress Relief Back Massage, using a multitude of ingredients and modalities to unravel tight knots that tend to gather, aggravate and stay in our backs. First, a magic elixir including a blend of full-spectrum CBD oil to reduce inflammation and Botanika Life Super Soothing Pain Serum that contains lidocaine and menthol is applied under skilled hands to disintegrate stubborn knots. Menthol, having been used for centuries to treat minor muscle and joint aches and pains, brings cool relief before slowly warming on the body to induce much-needed comfort and relaxation. Then, the therapist engages a cryotherapy ball to reduce lactic acid build-up and inflammation and achieve lasting results. A divinely warm pad is then applied to the back area while your therapist concentrates on the neck and scalp, where all tensions evaporates slowly through your Crown Chakra. It’s the ultimate pain relief with which to start 2023 and build a regular regimen that will help mitigate back problems from too much driving, lifting or simply sitting – be in a car, office chair, couch or airplane.

After the treatment, guests can further unwind by the Himalayan Salt Wall in the Relaxation Lounge or drift outdoors to the spa’s concealed, oceanfront pool terrace. There, a heated jet pool and Roman waterfall spa lead to further stress relief and Vitamin D therapy. Exhale deeply and feel refreshed and renewed in this magical oceanfront setting.
