Prepare to close two eyes and open a third: Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Altira Spa has a powerful aromatherapy massage option in the signature Rebalance Massage that uses customized oils to “open your third eye.” According to some studies, aromatherapy has been linked to relaxation and clarity of the mind. The Intuitive Massage also uses Alitra Spa’s custom made essential oils, as do many of the treatments on the service menu, even if the descriptions don’t mention it. If you’re sensitive to scents, let your therapist know pre-treatment.
The spa director is an aromatherapist by training and she has infused the reception area of the Five-Star spa with the essential oils of lime, bergamot, geranium and lemongrass. The clean, refreshing scent is energizing. Upon request, you can also arrange for the spa’s production house to create an essential oil specifically for you, making your treatment at Altira Spa a completely personalized aromatherapy experience.
