Award-Winning Spa Offers Ancient Holistic Healing Methods
BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS (April 5, 2017) – Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, a private-island, AAA Four Diamond resort in the British Virgin Islands, has introduced a new Ayurvedic menu at the property’s award-winning Ixora Spa. Based on one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems, the cliff-side spa’s extensive new Ayurvedic menu offers an array of wellness treatments and packages for spa-goers seeking an extraordinary experience for relaxation, healing and wellbeing in a unique island setting.
“We’re delighted to bring the ancient healing systems of India to the Caribbean, where our guests can fully experience the beneficial effects of Ayurveda through a variety of customized wellness treatments,” said Raja Mannar Chinnaraju, Scrub Island’s spa director. “This new menu of options at Ixora reflects our ongoing mission of leaving guests with peaceful minds, relaxed muscles and beautiful skin.”
Developed thousands of years ago in India, Ayurveda is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance of mind, body and soul. At Ixora, guests can choose from a wide range of Ayurvedic experiences designed to relax and rejuvenate while improving wellness from the inside out. Menu highlights include Abhyanga, a whole-body massage with herbal oil; Shirodhara, a treatment of warm herbal oil poured directly onto the forehead and scalp; and the Herbal Poultice Massage, with warm essential oils drizzled over the body. The menu also includes a complete Ayurvedic Consultation to determine body type and current state of mind, with recommendations on nutrition, yoga and purification treatments.
Customized massage services are also offered, catering to each guest’s individual needs and preferences. Guests can choose from the Signature De-Stress Massage, Thai Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and many others. The North Beach Safari is an outdoor massage experience at the water’s edge, with unobstructed views of the Caribbean on the island’s tucked away North Beach. Signature items on the menu include body scrubs, such as the Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Glow, and facials, like the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Age Defy Facial. Other offerings include body wraps, acupuncture, nail treatments, private or group yoga, spa packages and express options.
Named for the native tropical shrub, Ixora Spa is perched on a hillside overlooking the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, offering a haven to relax, refresh and reinvigorate. This 3,000-square-foot facility has spectacular treatment rooms offering breathtaking views unlike any other. The spa’s highly-trained therapists deliver masterful experiences, enticing the senses while rejuvenating the mind and refreshing the body.
