A Spa Evolution
“Come as you are; leave as you’ve never been.” The spa’s tag line says it all. The Spa at The Carillon Miami Wellness Resort is set in a luxurious 70,000-square-foot modernized wellness space surrounded by views of the ocean water and offers a holistic approach to treating the mind, body and soul. As the largest luxury spa on Miami Beach, the Carillon includes indoor and outdoor ammenities, the unique Thermal Experience, an elegant fitness center with daily classes, full-service salon, and an integrative wellness center staffed by a team of medical professionals.
With a recently expanded menu of services and newly debuted partnerships with leading global wellness brands, the spa at The Carillon Miami Wellness Resort offers everything from traditional Ayurvedic massages to high-tech skin care and even medical treatments such as fillers and IV therapy. The team of leaders and medical directors at the wellness resort bring a level of expertise that sets this spa apart from rest. The Carillon offers a transformative experience for its residential and transient guests, allowing them to relax, rejuvenate and reinvent themselves within the comfort of the seaside resort.
The Carillon Miami Wellness Resort offers a full range of facial treatments, massages, body treatments, global rituals and Ayurveda. The spa’s Signature Experiences are designed to “transport you to an elevated state of being for the ultimate escape.” Inspired by the sea, the spa’s Signature Carillon Seaside Facial (60 minutes, $179) is a unique and restorative experience performed with “restoring aspects of the sea and the rhythmic flow of the waves against your skin.” This customized facial includes alpha-hydroxy exfoliation, cooling and lift eye mask, and facial massage performed with delicate brushes and human touch. The facial is completed with a nourishing multivitamin mask and is ideal for dry, stressed and tired skin.
The spa’s menu of Ayurvedic services is designed to bring balance to the mind and body with natural oils and aromatherapy catered towards the client’s individual dosha: Vata (air + ether), Pitta (fire + water), Kapha (earth + water). The Zekhara Shankara Ayurvedic Shirodara Treatment (80 minutes, $279) is a personal favorite. This enlightening treatment “focuses on the release of tension around the head and neck, stimulation of the scalp, nourishment of the hair and balancing mama energy points to soothe the mind and awaken the senses.” A traditional Shirodara is performed with a steady stream of warm oil on the third eye chakra that glides through the hair to prepare the scalp for a deeply stimulating and relaxing scalp massage.
At the heart of the Wellness Resort is the spa’s extensive hydrotherapy circuit. Using “the restorative properties of water to promote well-being,” the sauna, steam, soak, salt room and herbal laconium offer an experience all their own that can be enjoyed before and after treatments.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
For total body and mind rejuvenation, The Carillon Miami Wellness Resort offers wellness lectures, oriental medicine and acupuncture, spiritual healing, emotional health and NAD+ IV therapy. NAD+ stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide which is found in virtually all living cells; making it essential to sustaining life. The wellness resort offers several treatment packages, including the JetLag ($895) which includes 500ML of NAD+ delivered intravenously to allow guests to “bounce back” from travel-induced fatigue so they can fully enjoy their vacation with a hydrated and refueled body.
The resort’s Spiritual Healing programs include a guided meditation and energy therapy. The Healing Energy therapy (80 minutes, $260) is designed to non-invasively “strengthen, balance and repair the human energy field as the therapist accesses the natural restorative processes” to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, depression, and other mind/body ailments.
The resort has also announced its partnership with plastic surgeon Dr. James Stern, M.D.F.A.C.S. who has joined on as the Carillon Miami’s Medical Director. Dr. Stern will introduce a cosmetic plastic surgery division to the resort’s spa. This exclusive partnership expands the resort’s services to include non-invasive injectables. Dr. Stern will offer:
• Non-invasive Injectables to treat and correct wrinkles around the eyes and forehead with options including Botox, Dysport and the latest brand on the market, Jeuveau. Dr. Stern will be one of the only physicians in the nation to offer Jeuveau injectables, allowing Carillon Miami guests to be some of the first to experience the cutting-edge non-invasive injectable brand.
• Kybella for unwanted fat under the chin
• Sclerotherapy for unwanted spider veins on the legs
• Consultations for invasive procedures including Facial Rejuvenation, Breast Enhancement, Body Contouring, and Revision. Consultations start at $250.
This month, The Carillon Miami Wellness Resort is launching Wellness Retreat programs running May through November. Running May 3-5, the Jump Into the Present Moment Program features Inessa Freylekhman, a psychotherapist and Feng shui master. During the retreat, Inessa will guide guests into “a deeper conscious relationship with yourself and release subconscious blocks that may be holding you back from experiencing well-being, success and joy. Clear your mind through meditations and forgiveness rituals. Trigger the power of intentions and allow time to bask in your own light, goodness and mission by reclaiming the powerful you.”
A second opportunity for retreat, the Become the Healthiest Version of You retreat takes place May 24-26. Led by Clarissa Lenherr, Nutritionist, BA HONS, DIP, CNM, mBANT, mCNHC, this three day retreat encourages guests to take control of their health and wellbeing through optimum nutrition and lifestyle. The retreat “will focus on nourishing your mind and body through a holistic offering of inspiring nutrition seminars, blissful yoga sessions, delicious and healthy food workshops, restorative spa treatments and one-to-one consultation for every guest.”
