8 Great Detox Spa Treatments

Some of the best body purification treatments on the planet

Story by Carly Milne

Face it - despite our best efforts, sometimes we don't eat as well as we should, breathe as much as we think we are or de-stress when we're not in yoga. Fret not! Just book some time with one of these spas for a fabulous detoxification treatment to get back on track. You can thank us when you're glowing.

Maroma Resort and Spa, Kinan Spa

Maya Temazcal: Get ready to get your steam on! Similar to a North American Indian sweat lodge, the Maya Temazcal uses super heated lava rocks doused Spa DetoxSpa Detoxwith herb-infused water to create aromatic and healing steam, which removes toxins from your body and balances energy flow. After you're slathered with enriched mineral mud that dries as the sun sets, you're taken to the sea for a cooling plunge that symbolizes a re-birth and leaves an overall feeling of cleanliness, calm and inner peace. (Riviera Maya, Mexico)

 

dtox Day Spa

dtox Organic Sea Algae Wrap: Often times, the best kind of detoxing comes from the sea. In this treatment, Klamath blue-green algae is blended with French green clay and pure lavender essential oil to create a powerful detoxifying body wrap. Klamath blue-green algae is the most nutrient-rich of all algae, containing detoxifying chlorophyll, essential fatty acids to improve elasticity and carbohydrates to stimulate skin's natural healing. Meanwhile, French green clay draws out impurities while lavender essential oil adds cleansing, balancing and healing properties. The big benefits? Your lymphatic function will increase strengthening your immune response and fat absorption. (Los Angeles, California)

 

Sila Evason Hideaway at Samui, The Hideaway Spa

Detox Treatment: Rather than using lotions, scrubs and oils, the Sila Evason Hideaway takes a more vibrational approach with the Detox Treatment, during which key intersecting accupoints are held in combinations to relieve muscular and energetic blocks, which also enhances elimination. The vibrations of the didjeridu are played around and over the body to release toxins at a molecular level, clear the mind and restore natural rhythms of health. Sounds like music to our ears. (Koh Samui, Thailand)

 

Sagamore, The Art Hotel

Perfect Purification: Sometimes your body just needs an all over detoxification. This is where Perfect Purification treatment comes in! Starting with a Lymphatic Drainage Effleurage Massage designed to stimulate the lymphatic system, your body will soon feel lighter thanks to the removal of toxins and balancing of the immune system more efficient. Did we mention this massage also calms the nervous system while it soothes the mind? As if that's not enough, a customized facial detoxifies the skin from impurities, improving its overall tone and texture. You'll look - and feel - years younger! (Miami, Florida)

 

Matachica Belize, Jade Spa

Sea Salt & Sea Clay Body Mask Massage: Few things are as blissful as this treatment! First, you're scrubbed with a blend of sea salt and essential oils that allow your skin to be completely cleansed of any impurities picked up from the environment. Sea clay is then applied to your body, restoring all the nutrients and minerals your skin needs. To allow for full absorption, the clay will remain on your body for 15-20 minutes, after which you get the chance to take a refreshing shower. Fabulous! (Ambergis Cay, Belize)

 

Miramonte Resort & Spa, The Well Spa

Detoxifying Mud Treatment: If you're looking for a deeply detoxifying treatment that helps improve cellulite, you're in for a treat. Using cinnamon, eucalyptus, camphor essential oils and more, the Detoxifying Mud Treatment helps accelerate the body's metabolism, promotes profound purification and acts as an effective slimming action by remineralizing, firming and smoothing tissues. Oarweed is a brown algae that contains approximately 40% mineral matter including iodine, which stimulates the lipidic metabolism. Plus, marine sediments have a high content of magnesium, salts and calcium which give the treatment its eudermic, restructuring and revitalizing properties. (Palm Springs, California)

 

Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

Carita-Le Renovateur Cheveau: People usually think detoxing is dedicated to your skin, but your hair can use a little reworking from time to time, too! This unique treatment features gentle exfoliation to rid the scalp of the impurities and provide the hair with energy and shine. A therapeutic shampoo and masque using all natural, patented, plant-derived ingredients adds nutrition, volume and shine. It's just what the doctor ordered! (Orlando, Florida)

 

Chiva Som

Detox Retreat: Chiva-Som, which means "Haven of Life" in Thai, is a pioneer in combining traditional Asian therapies with western health and wellness... so it makes sense that you wouldn't just sign up for a detox treatment, you'd sign up for a detox retreat! Using a holistic approach, Chiva-Som tailors each guest experience based on a Health and Wellness Consultation provided to all guests upon arrival, or you can sign up for a standard retreat that lasts from 5 to 28 days. Sign us up! (Hua Hin, Thailand)
