Modern Men Seek Detoxifying Spa Experiences – Grand Lapa Macau

| August 21, 2014 | 2 Comments

The tweet simply states: “Modern Men Seek Detoxifying Spa Experiences” – an intriguing heading indeed. Such was the backdrop to this social media chatter: a typical hot and humid summer day in Hong Kong, which on the surface at least, seemed nothing too out of the ordinary. A closer look bids familiar sights – pedestrian and automobile traffic congestions, and the sounds that have become synonymous with any mega cityscape. “Detoxifying” may have been the prompt, suddenly reminded of the urban dweller that all-too-often cites the strains of the modern day work/life imbalances as the causes of undesired stress.

While these may well be the times in which we live, the need for some regular detoxification and a respite from the hectic pace of modern day life, nonetheless, resonates, as does the notion and concept of a “spa”. With close proximity to the less frantic Macau Peninsula, this social media shout and subsequently self-prescribed detoxifying spa experience took place at the spa and wellness facility located at Grand Lapa Resort. Currently promoted as the “Get Glowing Journey”, the induction to this 2 ½ hour detoxifying journey begins at the moment of entry into the expansive resort-style spa facilities – a far away distance from the aforementioned mega sights and sounds.

Entering this spa sanctuary, familiar hallmarks of a place of wellness instantly stand out: the sounds of water, soft musical harmonies, warm lighting and aromatic smells are effective stimuli. Treatment expert and therapist assigned, Freddery, greets this weary urban dweller now seeking his very own detoxifying spa experience. The calming surroundings a perfect stage; the spa treatment room extended by its very own outdoor courtyard with jacuzzi set in oriental décor. The treatment is described to take place in several interconnected phases; first, the body is exfoliated with finely ground seaweed and walnut shells – a unique product combination (by VOYA) originating from Ireland. Then, a body mask infused by clay and seaweed oils is applied with the promise of an illuminating effect.

Invigorating indeed, as is the transition into the Dead Sea salt bath staged within the privacy of the courtyard setting. Complimented with a VOYA Chamomile tea, this peaceful setting is certainly most distinctively relaxing. The next phase in this detoxifying journey is the rehydration of the skin. This so-called Lomi-Lomi wave body lotion application does indeed feel quite welcoming to body and mind, as is the final phase – a skin type adjusted facial treatment designed to brighten once complexion. Wherever the magic is created, the memorable effects of this “Detoxifying Spa Experience” remain undisputed, just as the need for modern day men (and women) to surrender to such regular detoxification and a respite from the hectic pace of modern day life.
