The Five-Star Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami has launched “Inspiring Rituals,’’ a selection of spa and wellness programs designed by The Spa’s team of therapists to improve mind, body and spirit. Each monthly ritual focuses on a different inspiring theme from Connect and Strengthen to Uplift, Exotic and Revive and includes two hours of spa treatments, an inspirational fortune cookie, spa gift and aftercare and at home spa tips.
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami is a three-level facility located at the luxury Mandarin Oriental, Miami hotel, one of South Florida’s great hotels (mandarinoriental.com/miami).
“Our therapy team is always seeking opportunities to better serve and educate our spa guests,” said Spa Director Osa Mallo. “Inspiring Rituals allows our spa therapists to give personalized experiences and offer recommended products, overall benefits and expert advice that result in a total well-being for our guests with lasting results.”
The rituals are available through December and are priced from $335 to $380.
The Connect ritual focuses on reserving “Time” rather than selecting a specific treatment, for a tailor-made experience. The therapist assesses what is best for each guest to restore a natural state of balance.
With the arrival of spring, guests can enjoy March’s Strengthen ritual, which is designed to increase mental and physical energy through effective treatments including a Therapeutic Massage to dissolve aches and strains. Guests will also receive a Fitness Body Oil to use at home.
The Uplift program for April encourages spa goers to find balance with an invigorating scrub, Aromatherapy Facial and Mandarin Oriental Manicure. Guests will depart with an Oriental Wisdom CD prepared exclusively for Mandarin Oriental Spas with inspirational music.
Inspired by Beauty by Mandarin Oriental treatments and products, the Beautify ritual in May features the Opulent Rejuvenesence results-oriented facial using products by famed Brazilian surgeon Dr. Ivo Pitanguy. Guests will receive the facial in The Spa’s exclusive Beauty Room.
In the summer, spa guests can receive a Spiritual ritual available in June offering the two-hour Kundalini Journey using a variety of advanced massage techniques with aromatherapy, color, gemstone and sound therapy. In July, the focus is Revive and includes a Calm Mind Massage, Thai Foot Massage and Time Renewal Facial. Guests will embark on an Exotic journey in August with the Ayurvedic Holistic Body Treatment incorporating a foot treatment, full body massage, facial cleanse and scalp massage.
Designed to guide spa guests toward a state of inner peace and physical balance, the Ground program in September uses hot stones with an aromatherapy massage. In October, the theme is Unplug and incorporates the Inner Strength body oil throughout the massage to enhance relaxation. To offer thanks in November, guests are encouraged to extend the Give ritual to friends and family members featuring the ESPA Advanced Skin Radiance Facial to restore skin’s vitality and the new Lighter Leg Massage to soothe aches and pains.
Indulge is the theme for December showcasing the Spa’s signature Oriental Harmony, where two therapists glide in harmony with soothing massage movements for two hours.
