As a lover of Grand Velas Riviera Maya in Mexico, I am so excited about their latest Mayan-inspired spa treatments! The award winning Se Spa at the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Maya is now offering two new spa treatments influenced by the indigenous Mayan people: Nik Te Ha Aquatic Massage and Pixam Kan Massage.

The New Mayan-Inspired Spa Treatments

The Nik Te Ha Aquatic Massage is a unique water massage that helps relax muscles, increase flexibility and create harmony between the mind and soul. Named for the Mayan words for “water flower” this massage can help with chronic fatigue, insomnia, irritability, stress, migraines, mood swings and depression. The Pixam Kan Massages focuses on results from seaweed and the sacred Mayan Jade, which is said to bless whatever it touches. The Jade quartz helps balance the chakras and lift suppressed emotional issues as well as helps reduce electromagnetic energies produced by digital devices. The seaweed, comprised in proteins, vitamins, minerals and lipids that easily soak into the skin to add moisture, also helps eliminate toxins from the body.

What Other Treatments Do They Offer?

Additional Mayan-inspired spa treatments at Se Spa include: Bacal Massage; Mayan Jade Facial; Coffee & Cocoa Experience; Aloe Vera Massage; and Úumal Shawl Massage. What’s even better is that each treatment at Se Spa (of 50 minutes or more) includes an hour-long Water Journey: a relaxation ritual built around the use of the seven, specially designed water-based facilities. These custom-designed amenities include a Clay Room, circular glass-tile-lined steam room with a fiber-optic “star light” ceiling, Ice Room with floor-to-ceiling window, and hot-and-cold Experience Showers. A central infinity pool has powerful massaging faucets throughout and carved-stone chaises with jets set just underneath the surface of the water on which guests recline

Sounds like the perfect time to book a wellness vacation to Mexico!
