The pressure & the gentle heat of the stones eases tight, contracted muscles; introducing a deep sense of relaxation.

Hydrotherm: Pillows filled with warm water support your body, while the heat of the water creates a sensation of floating during this exceptionally calming massage.

The pumice, loofah & herbal extracts used in the full body exfoliation are rinsed off under the jets of the Vichy shower, providing a thorough hydrotherapy, detoxifying cleanse. A calming Thai massage, using Decleor's rich balms, soothes the muscles of the body to end the treatment.
