Massage Add Ons: Which Enhancements Should You Choose?

by | Feb 2, 2023 | Spa Treatments

In a recent survey, 93% of people who get massages said they do so to improve their health and wellness.

There’s no doubt that the best massage starts with a knowledgeable and compassionate therapist. But these days, there are countless options beyond hands and elbows to enhance your massage experience.

Keep reading below to learn about our 10 most popular massage add ons that will take your Vail spa experience to the next level.

1. Aromatherapy

Did you know there’s a direct connection between your nose and your brain? In fact, experts explain that there’s a very powerful connection between scents, emotions, and memories.

Humans have used scented oils from plants and flowers for thousands of years to improve their health and mood. Today we call this practice aromatherapy — and it’s one of the most popular massage add ons to choose from.

2. CBD Salve

CBD (cannabidiol) is a natural compound found in the hemp plant. It offers an array of proven benefits for your physical, mental, and emotional health.

Our CBD add on uses a soothing salve that contains no THC (so you won’t get “high.”) Your therapist will use the salve on targeted areas of your body to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

3. Arnica Balm

Homeopathic practitioners have used the arnica plant for centuries to aid the body’s natural healing process. It’s ideal for bruising, inflammation, joint pain, and headaches.

Our arnica add-on features a cooling menthol scent and an “icy hot” feel guaranteed to soothe your aches and pains.

4. Magnesium Lotion

Would you like to soothe muscle spasms, improve your mood, and get a terrific night’s sleep?

Select our magnesium lotion add on and give your body a healthy boost of this essential mineral. In fact, studies have found that we best absorb magnesium transdermally (through our skin)!

5. Hot Stones

When it’s cold outside, nothing helps your body relax (and heal itself) more than heat.

Add hot stones to your massage treatment and melt into the table as your therapist includes smooth, warm river stones in their massage strokes. You’ll notice looser muscles, better circulation, and less stress within moments.

6. Warm Scalp Oil Massage

Perhaps the most luxurious option on our menu, finish your session with a warm, relaxing scalp oil massage.

Our signature scalp oil features a blend of essential oils to hydrate and nourish your scalp and hair. This is a terrific choice if you suffer from dry scalp, dry hair, or tension headaches.

7. Paraffin Wax Treatment

Are you ready for the softest skin of your life?

Select our paraffin wax treatment for your hands or feet (or both). Our product uses a blend of shea, jojoba, and coconut oils combined with heated herbal mitts to nourish even the driest skin.

8. Cupping

Cupping dates back to the time of the ancient Egyptians and is a fundamental part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Your therapist will use small suction cups to apply steady pressure to your skin. It’s ideal for areas of chronic pain and congestion, as it increases blood flow to the area and aids in the removal of built-up toxins.

9. Dry Brushing

Pamper your skin with our dry brushing add on, which includes full body exfoliation with a gentle, all-natural brush.

Your therapist will use delicate circular motions to remove dry, dead skin cells while, at the same time, invigorating your circulatory system and increasing lymphatic drainage.

10. Oxygen Therapy

Struggling with symptoms of altitude sickness?

Add our oxygen treatment to your massage symptom and give your body a (literal) breath of fresh air! Saturate your blood with pure oxygen via a soft nasal cannula, which you’ll wear as you enjoy your massage.
