Spa Directors Reveal the Most Popular Touchless Treatment Offering at Their Spa

“The spa’s most popular touchless treatments are the Everest Cryo, ReLounge Wave Mat, VEMI, and Prism Light Pod. Carillon Miami promotes its touchless offerings through marketing displayed on screens in and around the resort, near elevator banks, on our website, on iPads in luxury rooms, and through national and local media outlets.”—Tammy Pahel, vice president of spa and wellness operations, The Spa at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort (Miami Beach, FL)

“The Acoustic Wellness Lounge with vibrational and audio loungers is The Spa at Séc-he’s most popular and intriguing no-touch amenity. One side of the lounge offers two types of acoustic therapy using the Gharieni Welnamis and Satori loungers with heated seats and zero-gravity comfort, while the other side offers the Living Earth Crafts Mind-Sync lounger that reclines into a comfortable zero-gravity position. Guests are drawn to the self-guided experience of being able to explore anything from sound therapy to guided meditations. They offer amazing binaural sounds that are synced with transducers to send the vibration through the loungers, which enhances the results of the audio as the vibration resonates through the body.”—Daniel Spencer, director of spa, The Spa at Séc-he (Palm Springs, CA)

“Our Recovery Lounge Biohacking Experience combines state-of-the-art devices to accelerate recovery after injuries and intense workouts, and promote longevity. The popularity of this treatment can be attributed to the current wellness trend. Biohacking has gained immense popularity in recent times, with many individuals seeking innovative ways to enhance their wellbeing. Furthermore, we take pride in being one of the few spas in the area to provide such advanced equipment, making us a unique and sought-after destination.”—Jesmin Aly, director of wellness, Six Senses Crans-Montana Spa (Switzerland)

“Our infrared sauna is the most popular. Within minutes of sitting in an infrared sauna, the body’s natural response begins; blood vessels expand to increase blood flow, and heart rate increases. This can help speed up muscle recovery after physical activity. Spending some time in the sauna may also help decrease depression, anxiety, and stress, and promote sleep. It is like a meditation session in a warm setting. We always recommend the infrared sauna before any spa session or after a workout. Our guests have access through an appointment and at no cost. We also have hot tubs, traditional saunas, and steam rooms available for guests at each of our three spas at Rancho La Puerta.”—Claudia Sugey Villalon, spa consultant, Rancho La Puerta (Tecate, Mexico)

“Our most popular touchless offerings are The Dark Sky Lounge and the O2 Soaking Baths. The lounge features specially designed beds equipped with InHarmony Sound Lounge interactive vibroacoustic technology and a Cocoon headset with built-in light therapy to transport guests into an experiential meditative state through a full-body physiologic and auditory experience using vibrational sound, music, and light. The O2 Soaking Baths feature Japanese-style tubs with oxygen-infused water that deeply penetrates and nurtures the skin, in addition to the many other benefits of hydrotherapy. They are unique offerings and they are shorter in length, so if someone has a lot of activities planned, it still gives them an opportunity to relax in the middle of full days of exploration.”—Deborah Waldvogel, spa director, Velvet Spa at Ambiente (Sedona, AZ)

“The best state-of-the-art touchless experience we have is our Hydromassage Experience Pool at Lodge Kohler, which is a unique highlight of the spa’s thermal suite and hydrotherapy circuit. Access to the thermal suite and self-guided series of treatments is included as an amenity, so any of our spa guests are welcome to enjoy the benefits of the touchless experience.”—Nikki Miller, director, Kohler Waters Spas (multiple locations)

“Halotherapy is our most populartouchless treatment. The holistic benefits from the salt that benefit the body and skin, and the mindful breathwork that provides intention to the treatment appeal to the consumer. We also provide a grounding sound bowl experience in our 22-inch sound bowl where guests stand in the bowl and are grounded in the vibration. It’s a beautiful treatment and provides enhanced positive energy through the Himalayan stones that provide decor in the room.”—Becky Leuluai, senior director of spa and wellness, Tierra Luna Spa at Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort (Phoenix)
