Self-Care and Pampering Around Park City
Welcome to 2020!
With everyone setting their New Year’s Resolution, we wanted to provide some suggestions for self-care and pampering around Park City.
Summit Spa & Float
With a wide range of spa services, massages and float pods, Summit Spa and Float’s seasoned massage therapists and esthetician customize tailor made treatments to accommodate the specific needs of their clients. Owner Katrina Long highly recommends cupping therapy (also known as decompression therapy) for releasing tight and aching muscles.
“Cupping creates a suction of negative pressure on the skin,” she says. “Releasing tight aching muscles and soft tissue, as well as draining excessive fluids and toxins.” Cupping therapy has become more well known since cup marks have been spotted on multiple members of the US Swim & Gymnastics teams. Athletes and weekend warriors alike can benefit from this therapeutic modality and post op clients looking to reduce swelling from their procedures have enjoyed the lymphatic drainage cupping can offer just days after surgery to aid in recovery.
Waldorf Astoria Spa
Stepping inside the Waldorf Astoria Spa is relaxing in itself. While the Waldorf offers hair styling, manicures and pedicures and massages, it’s the HydraFacial that so many customers are wanting and needing in Utah’s dry, mountain climate. This 50-minute service features Eminence products and is a resurfacing treatment for the skin. The HydraFacial provides cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration while Vortex-Fusing antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid into the skin.
The HydraFacial is non-invasive and non-surgical. Clients love the instant results without any down time. They often describe the experience as soothing, moisturizing, non-irritating and immediately effective. This is great for all skin types and conditions such as sun damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and aging skin.
Salt is trending. Just ask co-owner of Salt Method, Rebekah Stokely. “We offer pilates and yoga in a therapeutic Himalayan salt-infused atmosphere,” she explains.
In addition to classes, Salt Method has an extensive menu of spa services. Eastern Lympahic Massage is one of the most popular, proven to reduce and alleviate chronic stress disorders. Stokely says in many cases, lymphatic massage better treats injuries over traditional massages because it decreases the inflammation allowing the injury to heal faster. Other benefits include boosting the immune system to help recover from colds, sinus infections, low energy or allergies and stress.
