Nidah Spa's Keith Murray
SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO . . . . . The Eldorado Hotel & Spa is going for the gold this week as it showcases its signature Spun Gold Massage and Gold Facial treatments in honor of this week's kick-off of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Additionally, Nidah Spa is celebrating its very own Massage Therapist Keith Murray, who was selected as the sole Team Therapist for the U.S. Men's and Women's Olympic Tennis Team.
"Nidah" Massage or Facial? Go for the Gold at Nidah Spa!
In preparation for the 2012 Olympic Summer Games and paying tribute to its namesake "El Dorado" the Lost City of Gold, Nidah Spa at The Eldorado Hotel & Spa is showcasing its two, exclusive gold signature spa treatments, the Spun Gold Massage and Gold Facial. Nidah Spa is one of only a handful of spas in the U.S. that offers gold-based spa or facial treatments.
The Spun Gold Massage is an 80 minute treatment that begins with a lymphatic dry brushing of the body to exfoliate and increase circulation. Hot stones are then laid out on the back, arms and legs. Once the stones are removed a Swedish body massage is performed for relaxation. Chakra stones are then placed with intention, on the heart, stomach, throat and forehead. 24 karat gold infused oil is used for the décolleté/shoulders and arms in a sweep to finish. Price for the Spun Gold Massage is $180.
Throughout history, gold has been recognized for its luxurious and beautifying properties. Historians have long maintained that Cleopatra used pure gold as a tool to maintain youthful skin by reportedly sleeping in a gold mask every night. Nidah Spa's Gold Facial is an 80 minute treatment that utilizes a 24 karat gold-infused collagen mask, in addition to a gold aqua cleansing foam and gold revitalizers. The negative ions of the gold help to break down the skin's barrier to allow for deep penetration of the products. The 24 karat Gold Facial reduces and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, ultimately tightening and brightening the skin and allowing for deep hydration. Cost for the Gold Facial is $275.
