THE SPA AT NITA LAKE LODGE
The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge’s signature therapy is the ilā Kundalini body
treatment. Kundalini is a term used in yoga to describe the latent energy
coiled at the base of the spine. One of the main purposes of this therapy
is to release and realign that energy, leaving you feeling both relaxed and
rejuvenated. Soft, East Indian music fills the treatment room at a tempo
designed to help you slow down and be present. The therapist invites you to
smell the essential oils which contain a calming blend of argan, cardamom,
patchouli and rose. You slip under a heated duvet, feeling cocooned and safe
as a 60-minute back treatment begins. Using Himalayan sea salt poultices
infused with lavender and calendula oils, the therapist works from the
bottom of the sacrum to your crown, focusing on letting the energy flow
through your seven chakras. This therapy is good for people who might
be feeling depleted, as it focuses more on calming the nervous system and
stimulating the lymphatic system, rather than dealing with muscle tension.
The therapist will use a “soft touch” approach; this lighter application of the
hands helps detoxify and enables the skin to replenish itself.
We live in a world that is go, go, go — where our flight-or-fight impulses
are often stimulated. This treatment is designed to help you disconnect from
that; and the more you relax, the more beneficial the treatment becomes.
After the focused back work, the therapist will ask you to turn over for
a soothing face massage that really rounds out this incredibly relaxing
treatment. People often leave this treatment feeling a shift in emotions,
given some time to think and collect their thoughts. Be sure to leave time
before the treatment to take advantage of the hot tubs on the upper balcony
with stunning views of Whistler Mountain, as well as at the end to relax in
their sumptuous lounge area serving organic teas.
