The Spa at Bernardus Lodge offers a full spread of indulgent massages and hybrid body treatments sure to relax and restore you. Basic massages offered at the luxury Carmel Valley spa include massages for pregnancy, as well as Thai, Hawaiian-inspired lomi lomi, deep tissue and Swedish massages. But our favorite treatments are the ones that offer twists on these basics. Devotées of traditional massage will appreciate the Bernardus Essential Massage, which is a Swedish-style massage that soothes away tension head to toe. Mushroom Medley is a hybrid scrub and massage during which you’re exfoliated with a foaming salt scrub scented with cepes mushrooms, oak moss and pine, and after a quick shower, warm stones are used to massage the skin with a woodsy fir and spruce oil loaded with more mushroom antioxidants. During Tune in to U, Om tuning forks are used to cause subtle vibrations across your body’s meridians and pressure points, with the goal of removing any tension or imbalances. A rose and frankincense oil massage is the final fragrant step. The varied list of massages offered at The Spa at Bernardus Lodge will delight even the most worldly spa goers.
