Need a soothing escape stat? Here are some of the spa standouts we love…
Gold Sauna – From the ancient Romans to the Egyptians, gold was heralded for its numerous medicinal healing and beauty powers. Some believe it reduces dependency on alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and carbohydrates. A more proven benefit of gold is its ability to improve mental acuity and concentration through increasing the conductivity between nerve endings. Concurrently, it is beneficial for rejuvenating sluggish organs, especially in the brain and digestive system.
Did you know? Gold is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.
Hydrotherapy Bade Pools – Premier57’s exclusive hydrotherapy spa pools are designed with different “stations” of aqua-jet nozzles that target specific areas of the body. The nozzles are activated by blue touch dials and automatically shut off after a few minutes of aqua-massage therapy. This unique form of hydrotherapy not only feels blissful, but also helps facilitate numerous health improvements and relaxation.
Himalayan Salt Room – Salt is a natural ionizer and creates a fresh, clean, bacteria-free environment. This room will help regulate water and blood pressure throughout the body. Calcium, sodium, magnesium, carbon, and manganese found in the blocks of salt help relieve allergies and asthma, soften and clear skin, and reduce signs of aging. The salt moisturizes the air, allowing for easier breathing for those with respiratory issues.
Infrared Lounge – Microscopic infrared wavelengths are emitted from the overhead heaters and directly absorbed into the body, reducing pain, stiffness, and fatigue. The light also helps build collagen, reduces wrinkles, and speeds up the healing of blemishes and other skin imperfections.
Traditional Korean Body Scrub – Men’s and Women’s Water Lounge – Body scrubs are a traditional Korean practice of cleansing and exfoliation that uses textured gloves to remove dead skin, dirt and oil, while increasing circulation and firming the skin. This cleansing ritual has been an important part of Korean health, wellness, and beauty regimen. It’s custom to soak in the hot bath to open up the pores and prepare the skin for this invigorating exfoliation. A traditional mitt towel is used to remove effectively dead cells and dirt. You will be left silky, soft, and detoxified with your skin breathing like never before.
