When Maria from Body + Sole Spa Therapies reached out to me, I was so excited to come in for an Ayurvedic Facial. The winter has been super cold and dry, and I knew my skin needed some natural therapy. Plus, after a month of traveling, I needed to unwind.
Upon entering, Maria and Cindy greeted me. They were so kind and comforting, and showed me around the spa and offered me some tea.
The zen atmosphere and warm comfy interior allowed me to instantly relax and unwind before my treatment even started.
Marina was the massage therapist/holistic esthetician treated me to an Ayurvedic facial, which she explained as being an ancient Indian practice for maintaining wellness, health, healing and beauty. Not only was this a facial treatment, but it had a meditative aspect to it, as Marina guided me through a focusing meditation. This type of facial uses only natural and organic products customized to your specific needs to bring you to your own personal state of balance for healthy skin. I have a combination of dry and oily skin, so Marina told me she was treating my skin and bringing it back to a balanced state.
She used raw silk garshana gloves to exfoliate, rose quartz (the stone of love) to massage my face, and a variety of essential oils. Many of the products were made right here in Connecticut, including carrot rose cleansing oil, a rose toner, a rose mask and saffron moisturizer from SolaVedi.
I was able to completely unwind and relax as Marina worked on my skin, leaving me feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, and completely hydrated. My skin felt amazing, and my friends and family that I saw after noticed immediately.
Needless to say, I will definitely be going back! Body + Sole offers a variety of services ranging from skincare, to massage treatments, from nailcare to hair removal. A complete list of services is included here. I highly highly recommend checking them out, you deserve it!
