SPA AT THE PULL­MAN, AUCK­LAND, NEW ZEALAND

Vacations & Travel - - Tried & Tested - By Lana Bo­gunovich

Hav­ing re­cently launched an ex­clu­sive part­ner­ship with lux­ury Ir­ish skin­care brand Voya, a cer­ti­fied-or­ganic prod­uct range made from sea­weed hand-har­vested from Ire­land’s pris­tine At­lantic Coast, the Spa at the Pull­man has cre­ated a be­spoke treat­ment menu fea­tur­ing sea­weed wraps, scrubs, mas­sages and fa­cials. Sea­weed is a pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dant, known for its heal­ing and ther­a­peu­tic prop­er­ties in­clud­ing pro­mot­ing cell and tis­sue re­gen­er­a­tion, balanc­ing the me­tab­o­lism, im­pact­ing cel­lulite, im­prov­ing skin con­di­tion, and boost­ing over­all well­be­ing, and I was in­trigued to har­ness these pow­ers of na­ture for my­self. With my over-ac­tive chit­ter-chat­ter mind, I’ve never been one of those peo­ple who can get to such a deep state of re­lax­ation dur­ing a mas­sage that they fall asleep, but the skill, tech­nique and in­tu­ition of my ther­a­pist Emma sends me into a blissfully hyp­notic slum­ber dur­ing my 90-minute Voy­ager Mas­sage Jour­ney. My jour­ney be­gins with a won­der­ful foot bath be­fore I head to the ta­ble for a deeply re­lax­ing and sooth­ing full-body mas­sage, which in­cludes the scalp and face. Us­ing long, slow, ocean wave-like strokes, the mas­sage repli­cates the move­ment of the sea, and I soon feel my­self drift­ing off into an­other realm. This was the most deeply re­lax­ing mas­sage I have ever had and the lux­u­ri­ous Voya prod­ucts not only worked in per­fect har­mony with the mas­sage it­self, they also left my skin silky smooth and oh-so-soft. pull­man­ho­tels.com
