Psammotherapy – or hot sand therapy – while named for the Greek word for sand, has been used in a number of warmer climates in ancient cultures. In its most essential form, participants were buried or covered in warm sand in order to slowly heat the body to reduce inflammation, induce relaxation, and ease a number of other physical complaints. The first record of hot sand therapy can be traced back to the Siwa Oasis area in Ancient Egypt.
Inspired by the ancient rituals of the Egyptians, the quartz sand bed will bring you a relaxing rejuvenation.
Warm sand quartz cocoons the body and replicates the benefits of a day spent at the beach. Quartz minerals impart wellness benefits and healing energy to the guest as well. Inversion gravity also enhances the benefits of treatment. The warm sand and a pleasant motion will let you experience a soothing back massage,will activate lymphatic circulation, relax muscles and stimulate the whole body. A truly unique and original relaxing experience for you.
The immersive treatment begins and ends with gentle strikes of Tibetan singing bowls, producing a harmonic, resounding hum that is believed to encourage an elevated sense of relaxation. The ‘singing’ sound is remarkable and is both invigorating and calming at the same time.
The experience will be followed by full body massage with warm quartz poultices applied to the back and acupressure points.
Post-massage, be sure to drink plenty of water to rehydrate the body, but in the meantime, simply lie back, allow yourself to be transported to a sunny day at the beach, and relish the sheer bliss of an hour-long pampering ritual.
