Massage Therapies

CLASSIC SWEDISH & AROMATHERAPY
This classic, full-body massage utilizes organic aromatherapy essential oils for maximum benefits. A relaxing gentle-to-firm massage relieves tension, soothes tired muscles, enhances circulation and improves muscle tone. The perfect choice for first timers.

DEEP TISSUE & HERBAL THERAPY
For those familiar with massage, this stronger, deep-tissue massage utilizes a steamed bolus filled with locally grown organic healing plants and herbs. The herbal bolus is placed upon targeted problem areas, such as shoulders, legs and the lower back. This promotes the release of toxins and relief from recurring muscular tension, strain and inflammation.

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE
An exceptional therapeutic treatment incorporates neuromuscular and trigger points to treat muscular imbalance and structural-alignment problems, which are the causes of chronic pain. The alternative use of hot and cold stones for tissue repair and stress reduction may be applied.

HOT & COLD STONE MASSAGE RITUAL
Melt into relaxation with this heady combination of massage and nurturing. Penetrating heat from warm, smooth, basalt stones relieves tension in targeted areas, while an ancient indigenous smudging ritual balances the emotions, calms the mind and renews energy.

HOLISTIC RAINDROP RITUAL
This ritual involves dripping ten pharmaceutical-grade essential oils along the spine in sequential order to encourage the body’s structural and electrical alignment and fight viruses. Tibetan reflexology and specific massage techniques help the osmosis process and encourage the body to heal itself. Excellent for boosting the immune system, releasing muscle spasms and reducing inflammation. This treatment brings renewed energy to your tired, travel-weary body.

REFLEXOLOGY
Calling upon the centuries-old Chinese science of reflexology, pressure is strategically applied to various parts of your feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands and other vital systems of the body. Reflexology is believed to increase circulation and release blocked energy, relieving stress and resetting your body’s natural equilibrium.

SCALP & FOOT MASSAGE THERAPY
Forget the hustle bustle of the world as we treat your head and feet. Following a warm- oil scalp massage, your head is wrapped in a warm towel as your therapist performs a foot reflexology treatment.

THAI MASSAGE
Thai massage is often called “yoga massage” because the body is gently stretched into yoga-like positions, and if necessary, vigorous pressure is applied while pulling and stretching the body. Some of the benefits of Thai massage include release from stress and muscle pain, improved circulation of the blood and the lymphatic system, body realignment and better flexibility and digestion. Wear loose clothing. 
*Inquire about our group Thai massage session performed in our specially designed Thai pavilion.

REIKI
The Japanese word Reiki means “Universal Life Force Energy.” Gentle therapeutic touch promotes the healing process, restoring harmony to mind, body and spirit and enhancing deep relaxation. It can help you sleep and reduce high blood pressure, migraines, stress and pain.

REPLENISHING OIL CANDLE MASSAGE
A moment of complete relaxation for body and mind amidst a halo of light and the delicately oriental scents of West Indian Cedar and Neroli essential oils. The moisturizing, antioxidant-rich, anti-aging benefits and the enveloping texture of a pure melted soy oil candle provides a new perception of touch and an unforgettable pampering experience that stimulates all senses.

ASHIATSU BAREFOOOT MASSAGE
A remarkable deep-tissue massage in which therapists use the heel, the arch of the foot and sometimes the entire surface of the foot to apply a more concentrated, firm pressure, along with a less intense force where it’s needed for longer periods. Helps relax, soften and lengthen rigid muscles, eliminates toxins from veins and lymph channels, reduces inflammation, increases blood circulation and leaves a feeling of well being.

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY
Craniosacral therapy is a holistic practice that uses very light touching to balance the craniosacral system in your body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area. Ideally suited to relieve migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, chronic sinus and middle-ear infections as well as neck and back pain.

MOTHER-TO-BE AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE
This gentle, noninvasive massage is designed to relieve the discomfort of edema and stress on the lower back that can occur during pregnancy. Pregnancy massage has many scientifically proven health benefits such as stimulating the blood and lymph systems, removing toxins, stabilizing hormonal levels, and adding tone and flexibility to muscles, all of which enhance the health of both mother and baby. A special stretch-mark-preventive oil is used to give elasticity and nourishment to the skin. Choose between rose and lavender scents.

WATSU
Watsu is a combination of Shiatsu massage and stretching in our specially designed Watsu pool. Enjoy this holistic and totally relaxing experience while floating and being held in the arms of your therapist. The level of relaxation and mobility achieved from Watsu is deeper and more therapeutic than the typical Shiatsu massage.

HOLISTIC CRYSTAL LIGHT THERAPY
The focus of this therapy is treating the person as a whole. As the light frequency of the crystals melt with one’s aura, doubts, anger and fear are lifted, allowing you to experience a feeling of well being, balance and harmony. Ancient indigenous techniques of purification, smudging and toning take you into a state of deep relaxation where healing memory patterns are created. A total mind, body and spirit experience. 

SEA & STARS MASSAGE FOR TWO
Star-lit sky and the sounds of crashing waves provide the backdrop for an unforgettable and magical experience for a couple. Two therapists perform relaxing aromatherapy massage on both of you in your Ocean Villa, Bohio or residence. (24-hour notice recommended and subject to availability.)

NECK, SHOULDER AND BACK MASSAGE
Swedish massage techniques with a focus on neck, shoulders and upper back where many carry stress and tension. Maximum massage benefits in a limited time. Perfect before tee time and for children’s first massage experience. Wear loose clothing.

Facials and Skin Care

A porcelain heating mask nourishes your face while your aesthetician performs an eye and hand treatment, completing this ritual.

NIA-STEM ANTI-AGING TREATMENT
A unique anti-aging facial treatment blending the latest advanced technology of plant- derived stem cells and Niacin to detoxify skin cells, fight free-radical damage, stimulate DNA repair, increase cell renewal, boost hydration and improve the overall health and quality of the skin. Your complexion will look brighter and more evenly toned, with increased suppleness. Signs of aging, fine lines and wrinkles will look significantly reduced.

Exclusively for Men

MEN’S SPORTS MASSAGE
This massage is designed for men affected by muscle strain or limited range of motion. A combination of customized massage techniques are used based on individual client needs, including stretching, deep stroking, percussion and friction. This treatment relaxes, relieves fatigue and reduces muscles tension, aids in the prevention of injuries and shortens recovery time between workouts. It also helps improve flexibility, stamina and performance. 

MEN’S SKIN-CARE FITNESS
Especially designed for men, this is a deep-pore cleansing and detoxifying regimen. An extremely moisturizing and soothing remedy to reduce sensitivity commonly associated with daily shaving.

FITNESS SCRUB, VICHY SHOWER & MASSAGE
A vigorous sea-salt loofah scrub works on decongesting sweat-clogged pores. A relaxing “laddery” cleansing rain shower and a full-body massage complete this body-grooming regimen.

MUD BATH & MASSAGE
Fatigue and tension melt away as the marine mud works to relieve joint disorders, inflammations and muscle pain. A full-body massage completes this session.

Ayurveda

ABHYANGA MASSAGE
A traditional full-body Ayurvedic massage includes the anointment of warm herb- infused oil that penetrates deeply to detoxify and nourish the nervous system and bring true balance and healing to body, mind and senses. The oil in the massage is carefully selected based on each guest’s constitutional needs and predominant Dosha. Includes a mini Marma-point facial (Marma points, similar to acupressure points, are “switches” that “open” channels of Prana, or life force, in your body) to release signs of fatigue and stress.

SHIRODHARA AND CHAMPI HEAD MASSAGE THERAPY
Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic therapy used to restore an inner calm to the mind and to balance to the emotions. Treatment begins with a gentle stream of warm herbal oil dirbbled continuously over the forehead area of the “third eye,” which calms the nervous system similar to deep meditation and soothes the senses. The herb-infused oil is massaged into hair and scalp and followed with an application of Ayurvedic herbs to nourish hair roots and condition the scalp. Includes a mini Marma-point facial and a light massage using herb-infused oil. Please let us know if you have chemically treated hair.

BINDI HERBAL BODY BALANCING TREATMENT
This ancient ritual, originally reserved for Indian royalty and aristocracy, is derived from the traditional Pancha Karma rejuvenating therapies and uses herb-infused oils and a botanical body mask to exfoliate, cleanse, detoxify and nourish the skin. A mini Marma-point facial and light massage is followed by an herbal wrap designed to combat the aging process.

NIRVANA INDULGENCE
Indulge and take a voyage to renew your entire self with this “ultimate bliss.” A deluxe combination of our most celebrated services.

Traditional Asian Remedies

LUK PRA KOB HOT COMPRESS MASSAGE
A poultice filled with a blend of many herbs, including star anise, lemongrass, linden and clove is placed over steam and applied as a hot compress for the relief of pain and inflammation. The combined benefits of the herb-infused massage oil help relieve muscular aches and bruises, nourish the skin and soothe the underlying connective tissues.

THAI HERBAL STEAM BATH
The combination of medicinal herbs in the Thai Herbal Steam Bath is similar to the herbs found in the poultice compress. They improve general health, speed healing and rid the body of toxins while improving circulation and respiratory function, relaxing muscles, and reducing stress. The Thai Herbal Steam Bath can be enjoyed on its own or as a prelude to any other Thai treatments.

THE JAVANESE ROYAL LULUR
A luxurious ritual from the royal palaces of central Java Indonesia dating back to the 17th century to cleanse, soothe and beautify the skin.

Continue with a cool yogurt splash, followed by a luxurious flower bath and an application of moisturizing jasmine massage lotion.

THE BALINESE MASSAGE
A meditative massage based upon the history of Indian, Chinese and European influence in Bali. This ritual uses the fragrant aroma of jasmine and frangipani-infused massage oil.

TRADITIONAL INDONESIAN HONEY-CUCUMBER FACIAL

Body Therapies - Scrubs

CUSTOMIZED RAW CANE CRYSTAL SUGAR SCRUB
An Aromapothecary gentle scrub massage to cleanse, exfoliate and stimulate circulation to the entire body. Includes a deep-hydrating lotion application. Ideal before sunbathing for a longer lasting tan. (Please refrain from shaving or sunbathing two hours prior to treatment.)

NICARAGUAN VOLCANIC CLAY BODY SCRUB
Used in ancient Nicaraguan culture during their purification rituals, the application of volcanic clay is designed to exfoliate, nourish and detoxify the skin and body. As the mineral-rich clay infuses the skin, muscles are relaxed and impurities are drowned from the system. After the clay has dried and you have showered off, a generous amount of sage massage oil is applied to the body. To complete the purification ritual, we suggest that you relax for a few minutes in the sun to let the effects of the treatment melt into your body.

LAVANDER, MILK & HONEY SALT GLOW
Get your skin super smooth and ready to glow in your bathing suits, sundresses and shorts! After a few minutes in the steam, this special scub mixture is massaged onto the skin, paying special attention to dry spots, including feet, knees and elbows. Treatment ends with a body rinse and an application of a silky-smooth lavender body lotion. Smells great and works wonders on dry skin. Try it and get your glow on!

BANANA LEAF & PUREED PAPAYA BODY POLISH
A one-of-a-kind treatment that has everybody talking! The enzyme contained in papaya works like an alpha hydroxy acid, a natural fruit acid that acts to remove the flaking cells on the skin’s surface without causing skin irritation. This exotic pureed papaya treatment leaves the skin beautifully revitalized and soft.

FIRMING BLACK MUD MASK
Aromapothecary green Moor Mud mask stimulates circulation, firms the skin and detoxifies. The treatment begins with a traditional European dry brushing to stimulate the lymph system and is followed by a firming mask wrap and purification massage, leaving you with a light and renewed feeling.

NICARAGUAN “FLORECIDAS”
Inspired by a traditional aromatic flower bath used by Nicaraguan healers, the “Florecidas” is a signature soaking experience at Mukul Spa designed to relax, cleanse and heal body and spirit. To create the precious elixir for the bath, a rum barrel from Don Carlos’ Flor De Caña rum distillery is filled with water and locally grown flowers and then placed in the sun, allowing a synthesis to take place as the water becomes energetically infused and the healing powers of the plants are released. “Just as the flowers grow from the earth, so does the remedy grow in the hands of the healer…”

OCEAN CITRUS BATH
