New Treatments available for Silver Spirit guests
- New Medi-Spa Programme
Among the new spa treatments and services are available aboard Silver Spirit is a selection of physician-administered facial treatments including BOTOX® and the dermal fillers Restylane® and Perlane®.
- New Oriental Medicine Programme
Acupuncture Therapy -- Experienced and fully accredited acupuncturists will offer programmes designed to aid weight loss, relieve stress, manage pain and benefit many other physical and psychological conditions
Chinese Herbal Medicine Programme -- Almost all acupuncture programmes utilise Chinese herbs. These herbs are termed "whole food" as they consist of dried bark, leaves and flowers of specific plant life that aid the body in its self-healing process. Under the brand name Jou, the Chinese herbs featured at The Spa are harvested in China and meet strict manufacturing standards.
- Private Hammam Experience
One of the most innovative treatment additions is the Private Hammam Experience, where guests can indulge with an ancient Arabian body scrub ritual performed by a therapist in their private Hammam Chamber.
- DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Scrub Bar Experience
This fun and unique Scrub Bar Experience is a new spa feature that enables guests to choose their own exfoliating blend of scrub ingredients before they begin the DIY process with just a few easy steps that can soothe sore muscles, slough away dead skin, and reveal a smoother, more polished glow.
- Silversea Facial
Debuting aboard Silver Spirit, this signature Silversea Facial is designed to nourish, soothe and revitalise all skin types with its indulgent alchemy of expert touch, medicinal plants, rose quartz and a pure silver leaf mask.
- Bamboo Massage
The Spa aboard Silver Spirit also has the pleasure of introducing the Bamboo Massage, a warm, soothing massage that will awaken the senses.
- Thai Herbal Poultice Massage
This energising, rhythmic massage utilises scented herbal poultices that are heated and applied to the body at pressure points to relax the muscles and release tension.
- The Happy Couple
The Spa offers a relaxing and enjoyable opportunity for couples to reconnect in a stress-free environment with a couples massage or customised package for two. For a more romantic retreat, couples services can be enhanced with a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries.
I personally like the sound of the DIY Scrub - sounds fun, but then again maybe too much like hard work when you could be lying face down with a therapist massaging your back! The Happy Couple sounds romantic (I'll have the champers and the strawberries please!) and what a great place to have a bit of Botox done whilst onboard - your family back home will be impressed at how relaxed you look when you return home!
Cruises are great place to enjoy spa services as the very nature of the holiday helps you unwind and relax, combine that with the superb service and treatments onboard and you will never want to leave. See our latest Silversea offers here.
