Back in Action
Aches and pains, as well as muscle and joint inflammation can prevent you from having the energy to pursue the activities you enjoy. Whether they’re caused by a 19 km (12 mi) run on the weekend, a past injury or simply the aging process, the results can range from bothersome to debilitating.
Willow Stream Spas, the award-winning signature spa brand of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, tackles these issues with the recently launched Stay Active Rx program. New treatments provide instant and long-term relief through expert techniques and effective new products developed for Fairmont by Kerstin Florian International, including Organic Aromatherapy Ginger Body Oil.
Willow Stream Spas have also introduced advanced heat therapy to several Stay Active Rx back treatments, using a unique pad on the treatment table that emits far-infrared heat, negative ions and natural jade. Infrared heat penetrates deep into the body as much as 5 cm to 8 cm (2 in to 3 in) below the skin, which relieves pain, improves blood circulation, reduces tension and improves flexibility.
“Willow Stream Spas are all about energy – living with abundant energy, enjoying life’s benefits and staying active,” says Anne McCall Wilson, vice president of spas for Fairmont Raffles Hotels International. “We wanted to address these conditions in depth and be a partner in providing relief and prevention of future flare-ups for our spa guests.”
