  • Prickly Pear - The United States Spas

    Prickly Pear

    Conventionally known as the cactus pear, prickly pear is a superfood for the skin. Antioxidant rich, it contains high levels of betalains, which reduce inflammation and accelerate cellular turnover, reversing sings of aging. Additionally, the pear is loaded with vitamin E, vitamin K, and multiple minerals that banish under-eye circles and nourish, soften, and hydrate skin.
  • Lomi Lomi Massage - The United States Spas

    Lomi Lomi Massage

    In Hawaiian, Lomi Lomi is synonymous with massage. Accordingly, Lomi Lomi therapists use their entire bodies to impart long, flowing strokes that promote healing and relaxation, as well as increase blood flow and cleanse the body from the inside out.

  • Clay - The United States Spas

    Clay

    Lauded by Cleopatra for its purifying properties and used by healers since pre-historic times, clay is a premium medical and cosmetic aid. Rich in minerals, it draws excess oil and impurities from the skin while at the same time sloughing dead cells and deeply nourishing the epidermis’ deeper layers.
  • River Rocks - The United States Spas

    River Rocks

    Hot stones have been used to induce healing for millenniums. Traditionally and today, these rocks are made of smooth basalt, which due to its rich iron content retains heat. When used to perform massages, the velvety, warm stones calm the nervous system and improve circulation, allowing therapists to deeply penetrate muscles, tendons, and joints.

    Coconut

    Coconuts and their nourishing oil provide endless health and beauty-enhancing benefits. Abundant in Vitamin E and fatty acids, the oil provides deep, lasting hydration to skin and hair.

    Hawaiian Sea Salts

    Also known as pa’akai, Hawaiian sea salt comes in red (a mix of sea salt and iron-rich alaea clay), traditional white, and black (volcanic) varietals. These native salts are prized for their exfoliating and detoxifying properties. Additionally, they are employed to reduce stress, increase circulation, and soften skin.
  • Passionfruit - The United States Spas

    Passionfruit

    Celebrated for its rare flavor and numerous health advantages (it is lauded as an anti-carcinogenic and an insomnia cure), passion fruit’s beautifying properties have only emerged in recent years.
