Gemstone Treatments Debut at The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles Spa

The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles has teamed up with House of Intuition to provide a limited-time offering of mesmerizing treatments using crystals like jade, rose quartz and more.

The Crystal Clarity collection of experiences will be offered now through June 31, 2018 and incorporate crystals, natural stones, essential oils and other holistic ingredients, drawing on House of Intuition’s teachings. Kick off your day with a complimentary glass of bubbly in the Spa Sanctuary before receiving one of the three new treatments or choose the ultimate experience of a tailored package with the help of a House of Intuition consultant.

“More and more guests are looking for experiences that extend beyond the physical indulgence with an increased interest in holistic balance and energy levels. Working with House of Intuition founders Marlene Vargas and Alex Naranjo, we created therapies that complement the two schools of healing belief. Crystal therapy offers another natural method to rebalance our mind and body and we’re excited to explore the power of these tools in our pampering treatments” says Spa Director, Tamara Ische.

House of Intuition is a metaphysical shop with four locations in Los Angeles and offers an array of products, literature, workshops and more, focused on healing and transformation. Shop the funky shop at one of its four locations in Echo Park, West Hollywood, Highland Park and Santa Monica (opening March 30).

Jade Facial Treatment

80 minutes, $260

Considered a purifying stone, jade is thought to manifest good fortune and promote outstanding health. This treatment begins with a gentle exfoliation using a jade crystal scrub followed by an age-defying massage with a jade facial roller to help lymphatic drainage, diminish dark circles, tighten pores and boost skin elasticity. A skin radiance mask heightens the complexion’s natural glow, followed by a misting of calming spray. At the end of the treatment, a custom House of Intuition Healing Crystal Grid composed of three different healing stones – amethyst, clear quartz and moonstone – will be placed on the high points of the skin to help promote mind-spirit balance.

Rose Quartz Mani/Pedi Treatment

Manicure: 50 minutes, $80 Pedicure: 50 minutes, $85

Pamper hands and feet with an aromatic soak infused with rose oils and Himalayan sea salt to promote relaxation and purification. Real pieces of raw and tumbled rose quartz will be submerged in the pink-colored soak to encourage a feeling of nourishment and comfort during the treatment. Next, feet will be exfoliated with a rose quartz crystal scrub to leave skin smooth and soft, followed by a misting of rose spray to inspire the flow of harmony. Finish with cuticle care and polish of choice.

Chakra Balancing Massage

80 minutes, $260

Ease muscle tension, soothe the mind and promote energy flow with this treatment that combines traditional massage techniques with gemstone therapy. Following a relaxation massage, crystals curated by House of Intuition will be placed on each of the seven chakras from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Different stones corresponding to the various energy centers are meant to induce a sense of harmony – including clear quartz for clarity, amethyst for awareness and garnet for grounding. Finally, a citrus-infused spray will be misted over the body to encourage clarity and a renewed sense of overall well-being.

Custom Clarity Package

80 minutes, $450

An immersive experience transforming the mind and body featuring a collaboration with House of Intuition to create a custom treatment tailored to wellness needs. Begin with a consultation at House of Intuition to select three unique crystals that will be integrated into a custom Clarity Massage treatment enjoyed at a secondary appointment within the Spa. The crystals will be a take-home memento, along with a House of Intuition gift box featuring a selection of the company’s signature items such as an intention candle, smudge kit, raw crystals, beauty products and bath bomb.
