We know what you’re thinking, and no, it doesn’t involve any battery-operated help! Spa Esprit’s Super Vibrator treatment is a new-age therapy that uses a combination of massage, scent and sound to help you enter a deeper state of relaxation. The treatment starts with a bio-energy reading, which will determine the recommended customised essential oil blend that will rebalance your energies. To set the mood for the massage, the therapist will create a sound bath using the Tibetan singing bowl, which gives vibrations to send deep hums absorbed by the body. By then, you should be ready to receive all the benefits of the restorative Lomi Lomi massage!
