Fresh spring blooms are the source and inspiration for a new treatment at Spa Matilda that uses flower petals with special properties to ease tension, smooth the skin, balance the nervous system and calm muscles.
With the Floral Compresses treatment, warm compresses of dried flowers are applied all over the body and gently massaged into the skin. The therapy is based on Native American techniques that release healing properties of nature. A variety of flowers are used including lavender, orange blossom, calendula and rose.
“With the seasonal burst of new blossoms, spring is the ideal time of year to offer this unique stress-relieving and balancing treatment that adapts indigenous concepts of tapping the rejuvenating power of flowers,” said Bruce James, Director, Hotel Matilda. Spa Matilda is an integral component of the heralded, lifestyle-focused guest experience at chic Hotel Matilda.
