Rejuvenate the Body, Nourish the Soul

Looking around, you slowly breathe in the delightful body care product scents set against a backdrop of soft, calming azure hues in the room.

The warm welcome at the reception desk is genuine – they really are happy you’re there, greeting you like a family member or friend they’ve not seen in a while.

Once checked in, you’re led to the appropriate beautiful, spacious locker room, complete with a comfortable relaxation lounge, showers, bathrooms, and private changing areas. There you’ll find only the beginning of your detox experience, including a eucalyptus-infused steam room and an infrared Himalayan salt stone sauna; cold scented towels to cool your neck or face await outside the doors.

It’s wonderful to see both men and women—happily clad and silently meandering about in soft floor-length robes and spa slippers, perhaps with a swimsuit underneath or “al fresco”—in anticipation of their upcoming spa service or relaxation amenity.

It’s the kind of place you want to stay all day, and you can, regardless of what service you choose.

Direct from the Himalayan Mountains

One of Spa Shiki’s newest modalities, and fast becoming one of their most popular offerings is Saltability.

Created by Ann Brown, former Director of Spa Shiki, Saltability is designed to educate and empower both the general public and the healing community about this Himalayan salt, a pure crystal-like, salt rich in 84 naturally occurring minerals and elements, that is carefully hand-chipped and extracted—using socially, environmentally responsible manufacturing practicesfrom the depths of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan.

Using a combination of these distinct, warm, Himalayan salt stones and specialized massage techniques, practitioners can help clients achieve optimum health, healing, and balance that is more profound than using traditional basalt stones.

For example, for Spa Shiki’s Himalayan Salt Stone Massage, the salt stones are used to stimulate specific meridians on the body to balance the energy pathways and electromagnetic field. The benefits include balancing the central nervous system, improved sleep, and reduction of inflammation. And, the stones are 100% pure, certified organic, antimicrobial, and antibacterial.

Spa Shiki (13)Spa Shiki also uses the stones as part of their Himalayan Salt manicures and pedicures, Himalayan Salt Reflexology, and in a nutrient-rich Himalayan Salt scrub.

The benefits go far beyond those for the client, in that for practitioners, the salt stone warmers require significantly less water and electricity. By use of LED Technology, it reduces power use and delivers an estimated energy efficiency of 80-90% compared to traditional lighting, making them more environmentally-friendly.

Saltability’s mission and the benefits shown from Himalayan Salt services are so good, in fact, that numerous upscale spas across the country have incorporated them into their spa menus.

Regardless of the treatment you choose, you’ll immediately notice the shift in your body at all levels. Spa Shiki also offers a wide range of Himalayan Salt products that you can take home further aid your daily wellness routines and as well.

Spa Shiki offers single, half- and full-day services and packages, as well as complete resort and spa packages to help you “Relax, Rejuvenate, Reinvigorate” at every turn.
