Float Away: Hydrating Spa Treatments

The Most Luxurious Spa Water Treatments In North America

 

Salus per Aquam — that’s the Latin translation for health through water. Heat is used to quiet and soothe the body, while cold is used to stimulate and invigorate. Makes sense, right? The Murad philosophy on the anti-aging comes down to the fact that that as you age, your skin cells are literally dehydrating (thus the appearance of fine lines). Our solution to keeping your cells hydrated: A healthy diet, eating plenty of water-rich vegetables, reducing stress levels and our effective skin care regime.

It doesn’t stop there. There are so many ways to hydrate (and indulge!) your skin with innovative spa treatments. We’ve explored the best of the best, and exactly where they’re offered. Rethink what you know about H20, these are not your run-of-the-mill spa experiences.

NORDIK SPA-NATURE, OTTAWA, CANADA

As the largest outdoor spa in North America, this is the spa equivalent of glamping. Nestled in a forested hill, the open-air water wonderland features lagoon-like hot tubs, cedar-burning fire pits, steam-room huts, and hydrotherapy treatments like the Källa treatment. Källa is an underground saltwater pool that’s dug deep into stone. You’ll float around as if you were in the Dead Sea, while the water purifies your body, improves circulation and much more. Sign. Us. Up.

AMANGIRI, CANYON POINT, UTAH

Surrounded by canyons, this desert oasis is wonderfully luxurious and remote (a.k.a. the perfect way to unplug and unwind). The spa treatments include flotation therapy, in-water shiatsu massages, chakra-balancing, and pink-clay facials. Plus, you know if Brad and Angelina make the trek here, then it’s very worth it.

KOHLER WATER SPA, KOHLER, WISCONSIN

Yes, it’s owned by the plumbing company and it’s truly a five-star spa in the Midwest. There’s an 8-foot waterfall that sits above a 30-foot-long pool and a menu of hydrotherapy treatments that use hot and cold water to stimulate and/or relax the body. Our top pick: A bathtub that transforms music into underwater vibrations.
