Beachside Beauty

Body+Soul, July/August 2006

Visit any spa and you'll likely find treatments that recall the healthy pleasures of the beach. From salt scrubs to seaweed wraps to hot stone massages, marine elements re-create the sense of calm and clarity you typically gain from relaxing by the shore.

Treatments like multi-spray Vichy showers, thalassotherapy saltwater baths, and Watsu water massage are staples at modern spas. This summer, why not turn the tide? Rather than indulge in these ocean-inspired treatments indoors, make your day at the beach a spa experience for beauty and relaxation. Simple, rejuvenating, outdoor rituals -- an ocean-wave meditation or a beach sand-salt foot scrub -- nurture your body and spirit while you bask in the sun.
