Spring conjures visions of flowers, short-sleeves, dewy skin and refreshed attitudes. The Spa at Encore offers a few ahhh-inducing ways to welcome the new season and revitalize after winter’s ravages.
Four Hands Massage
Indulge in a massage performed by two therapists using rich oils that lull the body into a Zen state of relaxation. Slow, synchronized, movement at varying pressure and pace will help to align energies. Both sides of the body are worked simultaneously for faster relaxation on a deeper level. 50 minutes, $380; 80 minutes, $610; 100 minutes, $770
Kohinoor Ayurveda Facial
Gently steamed Shirodhara oil is combined with the nourishing properties of an oxygenating mask to create a harmonized state of mind, body and soul while also rejuvenating skin. The oil is warmed, then applied in a steady stream over the Ajna Chakra, or third eye, to relieve tension and worry while replacing them with warmth and calmness. Treatment includes a balancing bowl foot ritual — massage concentrating on the soles of the feet, which are worked in a specific pattern to improve circulation, alleviate stress and realign chakras to restore energy. 80 minutes, $325
Citrus Soufflé Body and Facial Treatment
A sensory experience using aromatic notes of tangerine, mandarin and grapefruit to purify, replenish and restore the skin’s silkiness. The treatment includes an invigorating citrus quartz scrub followed by an application of whipped vitamin C soufflé to help brighten and refresh skin. 105 minutes, $385
Detoxify with herbal-infused poultices and Thai stretches, then relax with the warmth of heated stones, followed by hydration with a warm, cocooning wrap. Then settle in for a scalp massage with Shirodhara oil. 105 minutes, $405; 130 minutes, $500
