Spa at Terranea Palos Verdes CA Opening in June

In sync with the tranquility, wisdom and splendor of the natural world, The Spa at Terranea offers guests a peaceful haven where life-enriching programs bring balance to body, mind and spirit. “Time” and “place” play central roles in the spa experience with day spa treatments and activities timed to our natural body clocks, while design, décor and products showcase the natural beauty of Terranea Resort spa’s stunning location in Palos Verdes.

Opening June 2009, the 102 acre Terranea Resort is managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts and developed by Lowe Enterprises. It’s About Time….. The Spa at Terranea offers a day spa treatment menu that is mindful of the body’s natural circadian rhythms. Four signature, spa treatment rituals that showcase this concept include: Signature Morning Spa Rituals: Reflections in Crystal (60 minutes): This is invigorating foot treatment incorporates Crystal Quartz, singing bowls, a beautiful copper foot bath and reflex-structural foot massage to encourage alignment of body and mind.

The treatment leaves guest stimulated and balanced both mentally and physically – the perfect way to start the day. Ocean Prelude (120 minutes): Guests begin with a replenishing seaweed wrap rich in vital nutrients before slipping into a warm salt water bath. Cleansed and nourished, guests indulge in a sensuous, robust long stroke laminaria oil massage. The benefits are better absorption of nutrients to improve skin tone, circulation, energy, focus and health.

Signature Afternoon/Evening Rituals: El Segundo Blue – A Ritual of Metamorphosis (90 min): Guests begin with a slow, rhythmic massage of sensuous, aromatic botanicals that help to detoxify and provide a deep sense of well being. Afterward, guests are cocooned in a sea blue mineral clay wrap rich in magnesium, the element of relaxation. A divine head & scalp massage inspires bliss and soaring dreams of flight. Flickering Embers (120 min): Guest begin by basking in the soothing warmth of a nutrient rich, detoxifying volcanic ash body wrap, which is followed by a neutral bath of fragranced essential oils and healing magnesium. The Hara balancing massage is an abdominal massage – the Hara is the energy center of the body – that encourages full relaxation and rest. Warm, comforting marine poultices placed across the lower back, knees and neck gently prepare guests for a night of perfect rest. It’s About Place…. Adding to the unique California spa resort experience is an exquisite spa design that harnesses the energy and beauty of its surroundings.

Ocean views reign throughout, particularly from the second story oceanfront co-ed lounge complete with cozy fireplace and walkout balcony that gives the illusion of being positioned directly over the ocean.
