Nature Calls: Spas In Touch With Nature

What’s more relaxing than the soothing sights and sounds of nature? According to a new spa trend, absolutely nothing! As we head towards autumn, it seems that nature is popping up all over the place, in spa design, materials, and treatments. It’s a trend that encourages a unique application of resources, and focuses on the amazing natural elements of diverse geographies.

At the Lake Austin Spa Resort in Austin, Texas, both local and foreign flora inspire the extensive spa menu. And starting October 1, a slew of new, nature-based treatments will hit the scene. The highly anticipated Bamboo Bliss massage incorporates relaxation tools crafted from real bamboo, heated and infused with aromatherapy oils for ultimate soothing. Also on the menu are treatments with a more regional hint of nature, like the Texas Sage Herbal Infusion, an invigorating treat for your skin. Dessert sage clay is used to create a revitalizing face mask, and wild Texas sage and lavender are infused in a comforting body wrap. But if it’s true Texas nature you’re after, the Best of the Southwest body scrub and massage uses an unexpected source – local mesquite – to refresh and hydrate skin.

Head north just across the border – two hours outside of Montreal – for a spa that takes the notion of nature to a whole new level. The Le Nordik Nature Spa is as close to a true Scandinavian haven you’ll find this side of the pond. A large rock garden connects the outdoor labyrinth of baths and saunas, leading you to Quebec’s largest outdoor hot tub, where guests can bask in the soothing warmth before heading into a chilled cooling pool. Then start the hot-cold cycle again with a nearly 115°F steam bath. Designed with rustic details of stone, cedar, and glass, Le Nordik brings nature front-and-center, creating a wonderful landscape for rejuvenation.
