While Kohler Waters Spa doesn’t offer any specific acupressure treatments, therapists do incorporate the traditional Chinese medicine pressure-point practice into some of the spa’s massage, facial and body treatments. Here are a few you can check out at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa.
The Ultra Hydration Treatment facial is fairly new to Kohler Waters Spa’s service menu and incorporates pressure-point massage techniques to help you relax. The 80-minute treatment also involves deep hydration, cleansing, micro-exfoliation and a triple-action resurfacing process to mitigate fine lines and wrinkles.
As for body treatments, the 80-minute Contouring Wrap includes a 16-point acupressure facial massage that’s performed as part of a regimen that includes a foot massage, Spirulina algae application, hydrating eye treatment, loofah exfoliation and a warm cocoon-like wrap.
Also note that during various other Kohler Waters Spa massage treatments, a therapist may apply pressure by finger, hand or elbow to release tension in a particular problem area. Like acupuncture, the practice involves manipulating the body’s energy through certain pressure points to relieve symptoms that may be experienced in a different, seemingly unrelated part of the body. Whether a therapist incorporates acupressure or not would depend mostly on his or her personal training and approach to massage, as well as your particular needs.
