Seasonal Salt of the Sea
Changing throughout the year as the seasons do, this seasonal experience will keep you aligned with the natural world. Warm hand-carved salt stones and unique essential oil blends are selected to fully represent each season and move the energetic pathways of your body. You will experience improved sleep and optimal wellness with each unfolding season on the Seacoast.
Beginning on the date of the Spring Equinox, when all signs of nature begin to awaken from a restorative winter slumber. Spring is associated with the element of WOOD and represents growth of trees and the human body. Tree roots, trunk and limbs simultaneously grow upward, down and outward much like the spine and limbs of the human body. We incorporate massage techniques in accordance with the nature of WOOD and use blended essential oils comprised of sandalwood and spring budding plants to provide maximum assistance in this spring transition.
The Summer Solstice provides the longest amount of daylight and encourages all things in nature to flourish. The summer season is associated with the element of FIRE. Igniting the FIRE from within means to enliven our passion, creativity and personal growth. To balance the FIRE of this season, we include vigorous massage strokes in outward motion leading the energy to expand outward and an essential oil blend of uplifting lemon basil, rosemary and ginseng to support and bring forth our inner FIRE.
Commonly known as Indian Summer, this is the time of year when mother earth’s gifts are most abundant. This season is represented by the EARTH element. Although it is the shortest of the seasons, it is thought to be powerful and directly linked to the bounty of the EARTH. With special emphasis on the pathways of the processing organs of the body, this experience utilizes earthly gifts of Indian Summer in Maine to balance the shift from outward energy to introspection and restorative health behaviors through this season.
The Autumnal Equinox starts the season of harvest and gathering of nature’s gifts before winter rest. Autumn is a preparation season, a time to look inward and toward the root of our being. METAL is the element associated with this season that represents the iron ore deep within the earth and is significant to looking within ourselves. To help you transition through this season, we incorporate memorizing deep tones of a Tibetan bowl to bring inward peace and promote clarity.
The Winter Solstice marks the beginning of the season of rest and replenishment and is identified with the element of WATER, the lifeblood of the planet. We celebrate the WATER of the deep blue sea in this seasonal experience with remineralization of the body with stone made from ancient sea salt and complementing oils that include marine extracts.
Seasonal Services: 50 or 80 min., $170 or $235
What is HydraFacial?
There is no doubt HydraFacial is becoming a liquid gold of facials and is one of the most popular in-office facial treatments right now. So what is a HydraFacial? It is a medical-grade Vortex technology four-step resurfacing treatment that includes cleansing, extracting, and hydrating the skin with serums that are infused into pores. The treatment starts with cleansing by removing the dead skin cells and excess sebum from the skin. Next, a mix of salicylic and glycolic acids are applied to the skin to break up any dirt and oil that’s clogging pores. Then, the HydraPeel Tip is used to essentially vacuum out blackheads, dirt, oil and impurities, while hydrating, plumping, and nourishing serums are simultaneously applied to the skin.
What are the benefits of a HydraFacial?
The benefits of HydraFacial are endless, but here are a few: it appeals to nearly all ages, complexions, and concerns. From those who are struggling with acne, those showing signs of aging, and hyperpigmentation, and for older patients with sun damage. The experience and results are consistent, safe and effective. Extraction process is without side effects – HydraFacial offered strict no-torture policy. It is never painful and in fact, guests compare the sensation to a light massage. By combining vortex pressure with a clog-purging solution of salicylic acid, willow bark extract, and anti-inflammatory Tasmanian pepper, there is no squeezing or pressing required, offering a relaxing experience while HydraFacial working on its important task. HydraFacial is infinitely customizable, from choosing a booster specific to your skin needs to suction level for more delicate areas, such as carefully loosen millia or boost circulation to clear dark circles. Last but not least, HydraFacial offers no down time and offers immediate payoff – quickly improving texture and tone, and even help conditions like acne, without any residual irritation or peeling. At the end, the skin will feel hydrated, bright, plump, and clear your complexion, improve signs of aging, help in reducing pigmentation.
How Often Do You Need to Get a HydraFacial?
Although skin looks dewy and glows following the HydraFacial treatment, it is intended to improve skin’s appearance over time. That being said, its effects do last longer than other facials, but in order to maximize the results, it is recommended to receive HydraFacial treatment every four to six weeks.
