When choosing a massage at Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Altira Spa, first decide whether you want to be invigorated or replenished — or both. The treatment menu is separated into these two categories for both men and women. On the Invigorate side, the spa offers Tui Na, Back Express, Thai and deep tissue massages. On the replenish side, the spa offers Swedish, stone, Mother-to-Be or an Intuitive massage, which uses a combination of all the massage techniques tailored to your specific needs. Before your treatment, it’s important to listen to your body to see what healing treatment it’s screaming for, and you should feel free to talk to your therapist at the Five-Star spa about what parts need special attention. Looking to share the experience? Any of the massages at Altira Spa can be booked as a couple’s treatment, too, letting you share the luxury with someone you love.
Your first step in deciding what kind of massage to get at Altira Spa is whether you want the treatment to replenish or invigorate. From there we offer a bevy of massages for both men and women. Massages for women include Deep Tissue, Authentic Thai, Back Express, Tui Na, Swedish, Intuitive, Stone, and Mother To Be. Men can choose from Deep Tissue and Back Express. Of course, we also offer our guests special signature massages, such as the Restore massage under the Invigorate category, and the Rebalance massage under the Replenish category. The Restore massage draws from neuromuscular and sports therapy, focusing on trigger point and myofascial release, which alleviates deep muscle tension and enhances circulation. The Rebalance massage is a Tibetan-inspired massage that consists of smooth, rhythmic movements aimed at “opening your third eye” using customized oils. Any of our massages can be booked as a couples treatment, as well.
