Top Spots For Shopping In South Florida
MIAMI BEACH (CBS4) – It’s time to renew relax and indulge South Florida. July kicks off Miami Spa Month, tailored to those in need of a little R&R who can book quality spa treatments for just $99.00.
“The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau created spa month to introduce locals and tourists to the great hotels and spas in our destination,” said Cristina Sorondo, spokesperson for Elemis spa at The Loews Miami Beach.
At The Elemis Spa, CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo sampled the Sticks and Stones treatment.
The tension relieving treatment begins with a cactus brush scrub.
“For exfoliation and to drain the lymphatic system,” said the spa attendant.
At Lapis Spa inside the Fontainebleau Hotel Miami Beach, six signature treatments are on their Spa Month menu. Therapists say the antioxidant facial is perfect for those who want firmer, brighter skin.
After cleansing, Erika applies a high frequency wand to the face. Then a firming and tightening mask is painted on followed by moistened towels to mummify the guest for good reason.
“She will look gorgeous after this,” said Spa Trainer Erika Ruiz.
At Lapis, if you book a weekday treatment, a complimentary manicure is thrown in.
