Exotic Elemis Treatment at the Seagate Spa

Delray Beach’s Seagate Hotel and Spa (1000 East Atlantic Ave., 561/665-4800) recently adopted a new spa-therapy line into their already impressive menu of massages, facials, and skin care procedures. In February, the Seagate became an Elemis-exclusive spa.

Elemis is an eco-conscious, award-winning, British brand. The signature line offers anti-aging and body products, as well as refreshing facials, body treatments and wraps, for men and women.

The Seagate’s 8,000-square-foot spa is a haven within the bustling Atlantic Avenue. The clean, khaki coloring and ambient music immediately sets the tone for the rest of your day.  Kick off your heels, wrap yourself in a luxurious robe, and sip some piping hot peppermint tea or ice cold water (or both!) before being led into one of seven private rooms.

I highly recommend the Elemis Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow.

The treatment begins with you laying face-down on a warm wet bed in a low lit room. Deliciously warm towels are draped on your feet and a mini-foot massage helps relax your cramped arches and toes. A small brush is used to exfoliate your legs, upper back, and arms with quick, firm strokes. Even your fingertips are buffed to provide a completely clean slate for the next part of the treatment.

Droplets of warm oil are dribbled along the back of your legs and arms and back. The liquid is thoroughly massaged into your skin, followed by a coating of the tiniest salt crystals.  The rough salt and sleek oil is a wonderful combination. The sweet scents of lime and ginger scrub away stress and leave your body feeling blissfully smooth. The process is repeated on the front of your arms, legs and stomach.

After the exfoliating process, a Vichy shower (little facets all spouting water) drenches you –towels and all– in a hot rain. The facets swing back and forth across your body rinsing the scrub away.

The last step is a soothing lotion rub down. The softest bell signifies your treatment is complete. You will leave feeling refreshed, warm, and relaxed.

The Seagate offers a variety of other Elemis treatments including the Urban Cleanse Facial for men, a Frangipani Conditioning Hair and Scalp Ritual, the Musclease Aroma Spa Ocean Wrap, and a Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial.
