spending days skiing, snowshoeing, and dogsledding in Mont-Tremblant,
Canada we were ready for
some Spa pampering and the Amerispa at
Westin Spa & Resort Tremblant was like an oasis in the desert, exactly
what we needed.
is a leader in the Canadian Spa industry, which we had "discovered" on a
previous trip to Mont-Tremblant. Knowing the Amerispa quality and their
level of dedicated service, products, and professionalism, we were delighted to
learn that they had a Spa conveniently located on the lobby level of our hotel,
Westin Resort & Spa Tremblant. Mont-Tremblant
is a year-round playground for sports enthusiasts, and after days spent pushing
our bodies to the limit doing winter sports, namely downhill skiing,
cross-country skiing, dogsledding, and snowshoeing in late February 2011, our
bodies were more than ready for some Spa therapy having used muscle groups
where we did not even know we had muscles.
Amerispa at Le Westin Spa
& Resort Tremblant offers a wide variety of services including body
treatments of exfoliations, scrubs, wraps, and back therapy treatment; aesthetics
treatments utilizing Darphin and Sothys products, treatments for the hands and
feet, specialized services for gentlemen, and packages for longer, more decadent
pampering that go beyond a single treatment.
Bamboo Extract Massage
Massages are one of our
favorite Spa treatments not only for their relaxing effect, but also for the
positive energy that they provide, as well as the opportunity to have our
muscles stretched and to work out any muscle tension. Amerispa offers a diverse
selection of massage treatments including the Elixir Ice Cider Massage, the
Bamboo Extract Massage, the Remineralizing Clay Massage, the Warm Aromatic Oil
Massage, the Warm and Cold Basalt Stone Massage, the Deep Tissue Massage, the Rain
Massage, the Warm Pebble Massage, the Tandem Massage, the 4-Hand Massage, the Therapeutic
Massage, the Sport Massage, the Mother-to-Be Massage, the Stretching Massage, the
Relaxation Massage, the Foot Massage, Reflexology, and there is even a
dedicated Golfer's/Skiers Massage.
Remineralizing Clay Massage
We arrived early, and after
perusing their Spa menu and had a consultation with the personable and
professional Amerispa Director Nathalie Fontaine, we decided on the treatments
that we wanted to experience on this Spa visit.
Edward: I decided to
experience the Bamboo Extract Massage, which was new to me, and was a
combination of a traditional massage with recognized massage techniques and the
effectiveness of bamboo, lotus, and water-lily extracts that had the added
benefit of aromatherapy. Keeping true to my past Spa experiences, when I feel
comfortable with my therapist and the treatment, I usually fall asleep mid-way
through the treatment. My massage at the Amerispa at Le Westin Resort & Spa
Tremblant was no exception, and I fell asleep during my treatment, waking
refreshed and content when my therapist gently told me that my treatment had
Debra: After a long, cold,
winter spent outdoors having adventures, my skin needed some extra moisturizing
and I had the Remineralizing Clay Massage with Lavender Essential Oil, used to
stimulate the circulation, transmit the elements of the clay and the minerals
to the skin, moisturize the skin, and with the addition of the lavender
essential oil it provided a soothing level of calmness.
Having experienced Amerispa
on a past trip to Mont-Tremblant, I was delighted to have the same therapist
this time for my massage. Lloyd's of London should insure Denis' hands, he is
that good. Half-way through my
treatment, when I rolled over and turned onto my back from my stomach, I
stretched my leg and promptly got a severe foot cramp, something that I am
prone to getting after spending many years dancing ballet. Denis with his magic
hands was able to deftly relax my foot, a trick that I wish I could learn to do
myself, as often as it happens. I left my treatment with my muscles relaxed and
ready for our next adventure.
Outdoor Whirlpool and Pool
After our massages, we
relaxed with cups of herbal tea in the relaxation room, and then maximized the
effect of our massages with a session in their Finnish Sauna, followed by a
soak in the oversize outdoor whirlpool where we gazed up at the early evening
sky and breathed in the fresh, clean, mountain air before heading to our suite
to take a well-deserved nap before having a late dinner.
