Mandarin Oriental spas around the world use a signature line of aromatherapy scents based on the five elements found in traditional Chinese medicine. At the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Spa at Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, you can expect to find a rich variety of relaxing scents and oils in the treatments. Each of the five elements — wood, earth, metal, water and fire — has its own special blend made with all-natural ingredients mixed by a master blender. Indulging in the 80-minute Aromatherapy massage is the best way to experience the signature scents. The treatment combines Eastern and Western massage techniques and essential oils to send your mind and body into a state of total bliss.
The sensual three-hour Art of Romance treatment also uses aromatherapy, offering couples a chance to soak in the hydrotherapy bath in water scented with natural essences followed by a customized Aromatherapy massage. There’s a special aromatherapy-based treatment just for men, too: the 110-minute Stress Buster. The treatment starts with an exfoliation and facial massage followed by a body massage that helps relieve stress and tension by combining essential oils, hot stones and touch targeting of the body’s most important energy centers.
