Does it seem like you are way too busy day in and day out? Your job, the kids, the house, the pets and life in general keeps you running, and running and running some more.
While you may love your life just the way it is, all that running creates stress which can take a toll on your neck, your back and your whole body…not to mention what it does to your mental health.
How do you slow it down and relax even for just an hour or two a week? The Spa at Gervasi Resort & Spa can help with that relaxation which can help you feel your best for those in your life who need you the most.
You will feel the rejuvenating process begin immediately upon driving through the entrance at Gervasi! Then, from the time you enter The Spa, it’s all about you and bringing on some much-needed relaxation.
“We encourage our guests to arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled Spa services to enjoy our Tranquility Welcome,” said Sophie Blackerby, marketing intern at Gervasi. “To start, our guests change into a plush robe and slippers; they will be offered to choose from a select Gervasi wine to sip when they receive a warmed neck wrap prior to their service. We also offer a delectable treat to enjoy after their service to enjoy in our Tranquility Lounge. Our service menu has been created to specifically cater to an experience you won’t find anywhere in the surrounding vicinity, including the Cold Headache Relief Massage and heated herbed poultices for our Signature massage.
Professional Massage Therapists
All massage therapists at The Spa are required to have more than two years of experience performing massage therapy and must be licensed by the state of Ohio. Gervasi went through an extensive hiring process for the staff at The Spa including formal interviews and two hands-on practicals.
Ohio has been regulating the massage therapy profession longer than any other state, since 1915. Massage therapists are under the jurisdiction of the State Medical Board of Ohio. Massage therapy is considered a limited branch of medicine (codes.ohio.gov). Licensure is granted to individuals who meet education, examination, and character requirements.
Blackerby said, “Our massage therapists have years of experience, and some teach massage students at a local university. We pride ourselves in the level of professional skills that our massage therapists have and we know those skills will only get better in time with continued education and additional services offered in the future. Experienced massage goers will not only receive a great massage, but they will also receive amazing service which makes coming to The Spa a full package!”
Let’s Talk Massage Services
From the Classic Massage or Gervasi’s Signature Massage to The Couple’s Suite with the Couple’s Journey or the Couple’s Retreat, The Spa’s massage packages and professionals provide serenity, relaxation and boost your wellbeing.
The Spa offers many options to meet your specific needs. Each service is detailed below:
Couple’s Spa Suite and massages
The Couple’s Retreat Package includes any 80-minute service. Massage is the most popular with this package, specifically the CBD massage. The package includes a 30-minute soak in the chromotherapy bath then the 80-minute CBD massage begins. You receive a CBD mud treatment on the back during the massage. The CBD detoxifying mask gently cleans and illuminates while reversing environmental stress with its blend of organic ingredients from earth and sea. That includes broad-spectrum CBD* and moor mud—a rare, nutrient-rich black mud crafted by nature from the gradual ripening of herbs, flowers, and other plant matter over five to ten thousand years. Moor mud is revered for its therapeutic properties by spas & individuals around the world. Once the massage is completed, 30 minutes of relaxing in the chromotherapy steam room and rainfall shower complete this amazing service.
Two people constitute a couple (spousal couples, dating couples, those living together, friends, and family members) and they can schedule this incredible service together.
The Gervasi signature inhalation ritual begins this herbal poultice and warm oil massage revitalizing and detoxifying with the curative power of herbs. The heat combined with organic herbs is absorbed by the body and helps reduce aches and pains, stimulating circulation, and increasing lymphatic drainage. A wonderful combination of smooth, flowing massage invigorates and releases tension, creating balance between the muscles. Finishing this traditional treatment with a hot-oil scalp treatment and facial massage to reduce inflammation and increase blood circulation for your ultimate escape.
Swedish massage is the most traditional form of Western massage, and for many in the United States, it’s the image associated with massage. Swedish massage, or classic massage as it is called in some countries, is a relatively gentle massage form focused on the body’s superficial layers.
CBD and Salt Stone
Himalayan Salt Stone: The warmth of the stones helps in achieving a greater sense of relaxation by melting the muscles for greater pain relief. The Himalayan Salt Stone is the purest salt on the planet. This mineral stone has anti-inflammatory properties that naturally soothe sore muscles while also replenishing the skin through the 84 trace elements found in this powerful mineral.
CBD Massage- A powerfully regenerative blend of CBD and antioxidant-rich botanicals soothes stressed muscles while restoring skin health and hydration. Its 400mg of water-soluble, broad-spectrum CBD is made from hemp grown responsibly on a Colorado farm and cold-pressed for purity, with no THC. The 80-minute massage includes the CBD Detox Moore Mud back treatment.
