Program Overview


 

Aveda Facial

Aveda Spa Philosophy:  Aveda's spa philosophy begins with Elemental Nature - a unique way of understanding our guests' needs that is grounded in the science of Ayurveda, Ayur means "life," and Veda means "knowledge."  Ayurveda believes that the essence of five natural elements (infinity, air, fire, water, and earth) are found in all living things - including you.  

The skin and body reflect the balance of these elements.  When skin or other physical concers surface, it could be a signal that an element is out of balance.  Elemental Nature helps you restore balance through approprietly diagnosed product systems, a balance diet and regular wellness activities.  The result is healthy-looking, balanced sking and radiant beauty.
