AN AURIGA SIGNATURE: INSPIRED BY THE PHASES OF THE MOON
Auriga, whose namesake is a constellation in the northern hemisphere, has a distinctive approach to wellness and beauty based on the cycles of the moon.
Each Auriga spa offers four signature services — named for a phase of the moon — that encourage guests to attune their wellness routines to the rhythms of nature:
NEW MOON • THE BEGINNING • 120 MINUTES
The New Moon is the time for renewal and introspection. Meditate on who you are and would like to become and establish strategies to reach your highest potential. Green is the focus of this treatment, representing all beginnings. To start, we offer a massage for your feet, your foundation. Your feet will be anointed with oils of juniper, rosemary and fennel to awaken your spirits. The body and mind are then thoroughly revitalized with a seaweed and eucalyptus salt scrub followed by a deeply stimulating seaweed wrap. The treatment concludes with a full body rosemary and eucalyptus massage. You will feel awakened after this stimulating treatment.
WAXING MOON • SOWING THE SEEDS • 120 MINUTES
The waxing moon is the time to refocus your energy, to nourish yourself so that you can reach your goals and higher potential. Embrace and embody your visions. Jasmine, whose white blossoms embody the creative spirit, will be the medium for this treatment. To begin, your feet will be anointed with the scent of jasmine, using pressure point techniques. In order to release the creative energies of the mind, the scalp is massaged and both the feet and head are wrapped while a luxurious petal and salt scrub exfoliates the body. The treatment concludes with a nurturing, jasmine mask and a full body massage. You will feel grounded and full of creative energy after this enriching treatment.
FULL MOON • THE HEIGHT • 180 MINUTES
The full moon is the time to realize your full potential. Live life to its fullest. Pink is the color associated with this phase and balance is its key objective. With a scent revered for centuries, nothing encompasses balance more than rose, the focus of this stabilizing treatment. The process begins with an anointment and massage of the feet with rose oil. While the feet are wrapped in a warm towel, the body is exfoliated with rose petals and rose-oil-infused salt, leaving both the mind and body in complete harmony. A deep cleansing, rose wrap nourishes the body with minerals and is followed by a deep, relaxing massage and a lymphatic facial, using rose crystals and acupressure points. This treatment will bring harmony to all your systems.
WANING MOON • CLEANSING • 180 MINUTES
The waning moon is the perfect time to feel restored. Cleansing treatments undertaken during this phase are more effective and will act on deeper levels. Allow the forces of nature to assist you as you allow yourself to let go and renew. Amber, with the qualities of healing and regenerating, is the color associated with this treatment. Your therapy begins with a massage of the feet that uses detoxifying oils and pressure point techniques, releasing toxins and stimulating your inner organs. An exfoliation, using silk gloves, followed by a lymphatic massage will cleanse any pollutants from your system. Finally, you’ll enjoy a refreshing facial to ensure total purification. This treatment will leave you feeling fully revived and renewed.
In all four moon phase treatments, Auriga features products from The Organic Pharmacy, the world’s first and only pharmacy to use 100% organic products and treatments.
THE SAINT LUCIAN EXCLUSIVES
St. Lucian culture has been shaped by a diversity of influences. In addition to English, French and Amerindian ancestors, indentured laborers from India, and China and African slaves have contributed to a potpourri of healing traditions.
Auriga’s “St. Lucian Exclusives” menu draws from each of these ancient customs, handed down through generations of natural healers, to create a unique regimen of treatments designed to heal the body, soothe the mind and invigorate the spirit.
FIKSYON FWOTE’ (RUB MASSAGE) • 90 MINUTES
Experience this fusion of traditional ‘rub’ techniques and warm bamboo sticks, using a Fiksyon potion. This unique experience stimulates the natural healing powers of the body while relaxing the muscular system. The combination of warm limes and herbs revitalizes the olfactory system to induce a sense of peace.
PANSE’ BODY EXFOLIATION AND WRAP • 90 MINUTES
This total body experience infuses St Lucia’s finest natural resources of sea salt, palm husk, farine, sea moss, nutmeg and honey. The skin is left smooth and nourished while the mind is quieted by the delicious blend of aromas.
VOLCANIC STONES • 60 OR 90 MINUTES
The Soufriere sulphur springs are the inspiration for this thermal, stone massage. Our signature therapy uses the warmth of stones to melt away muscular tension and increase circulation. The stones also have a sedative effect that can relieve pain and reduce stress. In addition, the volcanic stones are used in combination with pure, sulphur spring minerals to impart nourishing proteins to the skin.
