The Betsy - South Beach
1440 Ocean Drive
Wellness and the arts are alike in that they have the ability to spark our minds, to touch our spirit. The Betsy Wellness Conservatory integrates the two in a curation of therapies inspired by all forms of artistic expression. Each begins with a trip to our Aromatherapy Bar, whereby we guide you through a selection of natural elements based upon your current state and desires. Our Alchemist then blends these essences together in a custom therapy oil. Your journey now awaits you!
"Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life." ~ Ludwig van Beethoven. A powerful experience anchored in nature’s vibrational song. Tibetan singing bowls filled with water are gently gonged atop of the spine, core, hands, feet and any other out-of-tune areas. The sound and movement ripple through the body’s own water supply to deliver healing on a cellular level and induce relaxation. A light massage with a customized aromatherapy blend derived from blue eucalyptus imparts a final lullaby for body and mind.
"It takes a long time to become young." ~ Pablo Picasso. Restores beauty from the inside out. The body is then doused in a coconut milk cleanser that gently soothes dry, irritated, or sunburned skin. A massage with a firming lotion of coconut, shea butter and grape seed oils from the Aromatherapy Bar impart lasting effects of hydration and a supple, taut appearance. Renewed skin is then soothed and protected with a dose of aloe and sunscreen to safely continue enjoying the blues skies.
"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment." ~ Buddha. A ritual aimed clear problematic skin and restore a bright complexion via a probiotic trifecta. A clarifying cream-gel washes away excess oils with the aid of cucumber and tea tree oil, while sweet almond milk and yogurt retain healthy moisture. A masque variant combining these cooling elements with kaolin clay, Stone Crop and a booster of antioxidants exfoliates to soothe lines and reduce the appearance of pore size. A final sweep with an ultra-light moisturizer seals in these healing ingredients, while leaving skin smooth in appearance and soft to the touch.
An option between the world’s most coveted metal or gem: "Gold like the sun, which melts wax, but hardens clay, expands great souls." ~ Antoine Rivarol. A 24k gold collagen mask instantly flows within the skin’s contours, allowing it to penetrate wholly and deeply as it works to boost rejuvenation at the cellular level. Nutrients seep deep below the skin to also target the underlying causes of aging for a facial that not only treats existing lines, but helps prevent future ones. OR "Diamonds are a girl’s best friend." ~ Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. A diamond collagen mask facilitates nourishment and regeneration of skin cells. A fusion of micronized diamonds, whitening agents, peptides blend, and vitamins penetrate the skin to improve blotchiness, elasticity, and facial contour modeling. Any signs of tiredness or stress are replaced with an appearance of luminosity.
"It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves." - William Shakespeare. An all-encompassing treatment designed to unleash the full potential of body and mind. Pure cane sugar blended with South African avocado oil and ootanga (watermelon seed oil) brushes away expired skin cells and distractions. The newly radiant surface is then enriched with an argon & acacia body creme derived from the bloom of Africa’s most renowned"“beauty" tree. For the face, a sandalwood-infused Dead Sea Mud masque deep cleans amidst warm, earthy scents. The concluding rejuvenation comes in the form of a coconut collagen mask that protects against free-radical damage and premature aging.
"A pas de deux is a dialogue of love." ~ Rudolf Nureyev. Duos are moved through a simultaneous massage of coconut oil and lavender freshly blended at the Aromatherapy Bar. Soft scents delivered from the Aromatherapy Bar ease both minds into relaxation and romance while bodies are treated to detoxifying antioxidants.
