Body Treatments at Belle Mia: 80-Minute Body Scrub for $105
Salt Glo Scrub
A salt glo scrub (or salt glow), also known as a sea salt scrub, is a spa treatment during which a mixture of aromatic oil and sea salt is rubbed into the skin. Typically one receives this rejuvenating rub while relaxing on a massage table. A therapist drapes towels over the body and exposes only areas of the skin on which she is working. The mixture of sea salt, oil, and aromatics like lavender and lemon sloughs off dead skin cells uncovering smooth, flawless skin underneath. At Belle Mia of Asheville, NC, all Salt Glo Scrubs are followed by a mini massage to sweeten the treatment.
After the salt rub is complete, spa visitors step into a shower room to rinse off the exfoliation mixture. No soap is used during this cleansing as the oil and fragrance should remain on this skin for maximum benefits.
This March at Belle Mia of Asheville, NC, you can receive an 80-minute body scrub for just $105.
Although the Salt Glo works great by itself, it is often the first step in a spa treatment series. Because a sea salt scrub exfoliates the skin, bringing fresh, dewy skin to the surface, spa therapists recommend following the Salt Glo with a body wrap. Body wraps use products like seaweed, mud or chocolate to detox one’s system. This leaves the body fresh, clean and energized.
Detox Seaweed Wrap
Detoxifying body wraps benefit the body in a multitude of ways. Your body expends a lot of energy working to expel toxins* from its system. Because the seaweed wrap does the work of detoxifying the body for you, you’ll feel less fatigued, with more energy to do things you want to do. The seaweed wrap has also been shown to alleviate muscle pain, headaches, nausea, and generally cleanses the system.
A seaweed wrap can also be used as a weight-loss tool. While ridding the body of toxins, it stimulates the metabolism, helping you burn more calories. Additionally, this treatment causes sweating, which eliminates excess water weight. You’ll feel sleeker and less bloated after a seaweed wrap session.
Finally, paired with an external detox of the body’s toxins, the seaweed wrap will revitalize your skin. With amino acids and an array a vitamins, your skin can’t help but absorb this natural goodness and thank you by glowing in the weeks to follow.
*Often times, health-conscious resources discuss toxins in reference to detoxification methods. However, rarely, if ever, are these toxins described. Toxins come from the air we breathe, food we eat, water we drink, and other environmental exposures. Essentially, toxins consist of any unwanted chemical compound that enters the body. Examples include carbon monoxide, car exhaust emissions, second-hand smoke, chlorine and ammonia (from water), ingredients in processed foods like dye additives and MSG, alcohol, mercury, and chemical residue from pesticides and cleaning products. These toxins, and others, can build up in your system adversely affecting your health.
