Tribal Body Es­cape is an ex­cit­ing new treat­ment that fea­tures or­ganic prod­ucts from the award-win­ning Bernard Cas­sière Paris. The in­gre­di­ents are in­spired by an­ces­tral recipes and all treat­ments ex­plore an­cient beauty rit­u­als per­formed by African, Amerindian and Poly­ne­sian women. My two-hour Tribal Es­cape rit­ual starts with a quick foot wash­ing and then my ther­a­pist scrubs my body with 100 per cent Ara­bica cof­fee and baobab oil. Af­ter I am en­sconced in a mois­tur­iz­ing cac­tus body wrap. Its deep hy­drat­ing ef­fect re­stores dull - look­ing skin, leav­ing it soft and ra­di­ant. Fi­nally, I am pam­pered with a full-body mas­sage us­ing monoi balm from Tahiti. The spa at In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Jakarta MidPlaza adds a spe­cial touch to the mas­sage by ap­ply­ing its Sig­na­ture Reiki tech­nique, which is said to re­store a smooth flow of en­ergy, leav­ing you feel­ing 100 per cent re­laxed and re­born. I leave the spa feel­ing re­freshed and ready to take on the world.
