The Spa at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island has 13 different massage choices on its comprehensive spa menu — you’ll find treatments that cater to executives, expectant mothers, couples and everyone in between. For a classic massage experience with a twist, try the Signature Massage. During this service, a therapist will place heated grain- and herb-filled wraps on tension-filled areas and major muscle groups. The purpose? To induce relaxation and increase the therapeutic effect. As a healing-focused massage, the CranioSacral Therapy is for those who may suffer fatigue, stress-induced tension or migraines. The therapist will seek out restrictions and imbalances and release areas under pressure.
The Executive Renewal Massage is a more recent addition to the spa menu and intended for business travelers (travel and time spent on laptops are a recipe for upper-body aches). During the massage, special attention is paid to your neck, shoulders, back, arms and hands — deep-tissue work and penetrating heat help to alleviate tension and ease pains. Other massage treatments include Thai Massage, Reiki, Foot Reflexology, Hot Stone Massage, Athletic Recovery Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Classic Massage and Maternity Massage.
There’s also an extensive massage add-on menu at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa — incorporate services like aromatherapy, paraffin wraps and scalp massage for an additional charge. Or you can opt for the services of a master massage specialist for an additional fee — a therapist with more than 10 years of experience will offer guidance and knowledge throughout your spa experience.
