I have been going to River Rock Health Spa for my bi-annual spa indulgence since I moved to Woodstock, and I was very excited to have them sponsor and pamper Hudson Valley Good Stuff. I love trying new spa services I haven’t tried yet, and owner Babs Moley suggested I try the Eminence Organic Body Scrub, Wrap, and moisture Treatment with Vichy Shower for its indulgence. Well, I’ve always wanted to try a wrap so I booked it!
It is better to shower before a wrap because if you shower afterwards you’ll just lose all the good stuff that’s been lathered into you. I entered the warm and steamy wet room, rested flat on my back, wrapped in a towel, while Kate dry exofiliated my skin. (The entire body gets exfoliated, even the ticklish feet). She said a few women don’t like to get their stomachs scrubbed, but I agreed to it. After that came the wet scrub, and an Eminence masque, then my body was wrapped in a thermal blanket. All the Eminence products smelled yummy like dessert too!
During the entire treatment, the room is very warm so I was probably sweating off the lotions too. After a few minutes later, the Vichy Shower was pulled over me and water from 7 different jets rinsed me off. (According to the brochure, my 7 chakras get aligned too!) The treatment ended with lathering of Eminence moisturizing lotion, and my skin felt amazing as soon as I walked out the door.
Even a week later, my skin still feels softer than it did pre-wrap. Kate tells her clients if they can afford to, it’s great to get this done once a season, but even if it’s just once is good in my book! River Rock Health Spa, 62 Ricks Road, Woodstock, NY (845) 679-7800.
