ESPA has created the exclusive Lava Shell Body Treatment for Ritz-Carlton Hotels. Seashells are heated and then used to massage the body with aromatic essential oils, to relax the muscles and improve circulation. This treatment, combining the calming effects of warmth and aroma, is ideal for those who prefer a more gentle massage. After your treatment, head to the spa lounge on the 116th floor where you can kick back and admire Victoria Harbour from the hotel’s lofty heights.

Wushu Body Wisdom Massage
The reason behind the curious name of this treatment became clear when we saw the long bamboo stick, wooden chair and the therapist dressed in martial arts attire at the spa. Our experience of ‘wushu’ wellness began with an intensive stretching session carefully guided by the therapist, who then uses natural plant extracted oils to perform wushu-inspired massage using the bamboo. An incredible sense of release from tightness and instant energy boost made this spa visit a genuine treat.
