WOODHOUSE SPA PACKAGES

From June 1st through August 31st, Woodhouse will offer a package called “The Passport” which will explore ancient spa rituals and their inherent health benefits through an array of an exotic spa treatments from around the world.  Each guest is assigned a tour guide who leads them through the journey, which includes stops in: 

·         South America – Known for their festive Carnival, Brazil also yields a third of the world’s sugarcane.  An indulging scoop of this can be found in the Organic Sugar Scrub Pedicure.

·         Africa – The Soma incorporates ancient Egyptian forms of reflexology, as Egypt is credited as one of the most prominent cultures to perform this ancient art, which is depicted in their hieroglyphics.  The restorative Shirodhara Scalp Massage gives this therapy a taste of India.

·         Asia – The Chakra Aromatherapy Massage, which has roots in Ayurvedic tradition, enlists Marma point (a.k.a. pressure point) relaxation and balancing techniques include the use of chakra stones that are just the start of this profound ritual.

·         Europe – Travelers conclude their journey with The Soothing Facial to enjoy the finest, organically grown, certified essential oils from around the world, which achieve a calming effect on the skin.

Few of us need a crash course in how to enjoy a quality spa treatment, but even fewer of us are aware of the rich cultural origins of the spa rituals we so commonly enjoy.  The origin of spa dates back to Roman era, when Italian armies fatigued by wars would “take the waters” to rejuvenate, relax and treat wounds.  In fact, the oldest medical book in existence—written in China in approximately 1000 BC—makes reference to the use of massage as a treatment for disease.

The Woodhouse Day Spas—the country’s premier day spa franchise with 23 locations nationally—is slated to launch the International Spa Tour, a series of rejuvenating spa services that take each guest through the ancient rituals that they originated from.  The treatments are accompanied by a series of digital videos, hosted on the Woodhouse Web site and released each week on the company’s social media sites.
