It’s easy to argue that a day spa treatment can be considered part of a plan for healthful living.
“We call it therapeutic pampering,” says Chaz Henline, owner of Charles Scott Salons and Spas. “It’s not so much an indulgence as it is a necessity.”
What separates this spa from the rest of the pack is the vichy massage water service included in the Chaz’ Choice spa package. This two hours of extravagance is a compilation of Henline’s favorite body treatments that he discovered on his travels and brought back to his small-scale resort. “A true spa offers water services,” he says. “The ambiance of the shower and sound of the water, that’s my choice. That’s what I want.”
Chaz’ Choice Spa Package:
Dry Brushing and Sugar Cane Scrub: In a heated room, relax on a soft, comfortable cot while a friendly technician brushes off dead skin and exfoliates your body with a soothing citrus-smelling sugar scrub.
Vichy Shower Massage: With the ideal temperature set, close your eyes and unwind as the water gently beats down on your body, washing away the sugar scrub and leaving you with soft, silky skin.
Dead Sea Mud Mask Treatment: The technician paints a warm mask made of dead sea mud and essential oils onto the back of your body, covers you in a body wrap and leaves you to indulge in a worry-free nap. “It raises the body temperature and helps draw toxins out of the body,” Henline says.
Massage: Relax in a dimly lit room under blankets that cover you in a bear hug. Drift off into wonderland as a therapist kneads her way through your neck, arms, back, legs and feet with just the right amount of pressure, leaving you in a euphoric state of loose limbs, sound mind and a brand new body (or at least it feels like it).
