Relax in a whole new way with CIVANA‘s newest treatment Aqua Shiatsu.
Okay, what spa treatment isn’t? But this goes the extra mile. The 60-min. Watsu (Aqua Shiatsu) treatment is more of a relaxing experience than anything else. Light weights are placed around your legs to keep them afloat the entire time, while the therapist supports your upper body for the duration of the treatment. The result? A floating experience that feels like flying through the air…or what I imagine that would feel like. The therapist gently moves you through the pool, adding in stretching and light massaging for a one-of-a-kind meditative experience.
I’m a facial fiend but it’s always great to try something new. While I’ve had my fair share of different treatments, a lot of massages and facials can seem very similar. The Aqua Shiatsu is far from anything I’ve tried before. For one, the outdoor location in a mildly warm plunge pool was enough to switch it up. Add on the fact that the treatment focused more on relaxation than it did working out sore muscles or face masks and you’re in for a real treat. If you’re looking to shut your mind down for an hour, this is the treatment for you.
The Spa Facilities
Booking the Aqua Shiatsu will grant you access to CIVANA’s spa facilities which are endless. You could spend an entire day holed up here. The indoor Aqua Vitality Circuit features a Jacuzzi and sanarium (the only on in the U.S. like it) along with cold and hot wading pools, all designed to increase circulation. There’s also a spacious steam room to sweat out all your stress. Upstairs, a breezy relaxation room is filled with cozy seating that leads out to a balcony overlooking the spa’s lap pool. The pool is lined with loungers and cabanas and stocked with amenities to keep cool like infused water, lemon-scented towels and facial mists. You can even order snacks and drinks because what’s self care without a cocktail or two?
