After a workout on the slopes with the wind and sun, be kind to your body and skin and get one of these special treatments at the various spas around the Tahoe area. Most of these treatments are specific to a particular spa, so you know you’ll be getting something just a little different.
The therapists at the spa at the Ritz-Carlton Highlands in Truckee use yummy fruits and veggies to give your skin a fresh, new look. The yam-pumpkin enzyme peel dissolves dead surface cells and the cranberry-pomegranate mask is full of vitamins. 50 minutes of bliss will cost about $155.
The Stillwater Spa at the Hyatt at Lake Tahoe near Incline Village has both a manicure and pedicure that uses native stones from the lake as well as natural exfoliating scrub and cuticle treatments.
This touchy-feely massage lengthens out the muscles by positioning the client into various stretches. The stretching is also intended to facilitate circulation and range of motion.
This treatment is a relaxing Swedish style massage for those adjusting from sea level or suffering from high altitude symptoms such as dryness, dehydration, headaches, and sometimes anxiety. This aroma-massage treatment uses a special blend of essential oils that promote respiration, relax the body, calm the nerves, and soothe tension headaches. 50 minutes will cost $135.
This treatment uses propolis, a substance collected by honey bees and recognized for its healing properties. After the wrap, you are slathered in a warm coconut milk moisturizer. 50 minutes will cost $150.
Gisela, the massage therapist from Touch from the Heart massage integrates both Japanese and Native American spirituality into her treatments. Her massages can take place at your hotel or even outdoors. She offers one-hour massages for $95.
