Feeling a little “meh” lately? Nothing refreshes the body, mind and spirit like a nice scrub down. If you’re in need of new start, or even just a little pick-me-up, our invigorating Akasuri Scrub is your ticket.
Although the word “Akasuri” is Japanese in origin, this style of body scrub originated on the Korean peninsula. In Korean culture, bathing represents the purification of the soul, and Akasuri Scrub is the cornerstone of the Korean approach to holistic health and wellness.
Massage & Vichy Shower
Traditionally, the treatment begins with a visit to either a hot shower, bath, steam room or sauna. At Sanctuary Spa, we begin with a light massage, and move on to washing the body with an exfoliating glove. After this preparation, you will be given a relaxing, warm Vichy shower. The Vichy shower helps to increase circulation through the body, oxygenate the blood, decrease joint pain, relieve muscle pain, reduce muscle spasms and cramps, and reduce nervous stress and promotes relaxation, rest and recovery. It also helps soften the skin, preparing it for the scrub.
