Imagine soaking in a hot mineral bath, letting the stress of a busy work week or demanding parenting times float out of you as dozens of trace elements drawn from the ocean work to replenish your body.
Taken as a separate action, a soak like this is a great way to help you relax. When combined with other services, such as those offered at the newly opened Cave Cure & Therapies in Langley, the benefits to your state of well-being can be enhanced greatly, says Melissa Horrell, Cave co-owner.
Before or after, both can work wonders This multifaceted health and wellness centre, whose practitioners work with you in the areas of mind, beauty, body and soul, has added a two-person mineral spa. “Its purpose is to allow you to be in a better state to receive the other services,” Horrell says. “The heat of the water helps relax your body, which is great before a service like chiropractic or massage. But it also can be beneficial after counselling – people find it can be quite grounding and can offset some of the difficult issues they dig up.”
International experience informs Cave concept With 20 years background in the health and wellness industry, including working in healing spas in Europe, Horrell spent years developing the unique idea for Cave Cure & Therapies. Bringing all types of healing modalities under one roof was a way to give back to the community, she says, and provide a sanctuary-like experience like no other in Langley.
“We know there are many people who suffer stress and anxiety, and maybe some depression, and other modern-day health afflictions, as well as others who are juggling careers with raising children. There seems to be a need to get away from that, even just for a little bit. Our Ritual Experience Packages are designed to support our community’s health pains.”
Juice up with the good stuff Looking for a way to take in healthy food and beverages? Try out Cave’s new Elixir Café. Designed to blend with the calming, nurturing environment of the clinic/spa – it features a “live wall” filled with plants – the spot is perfect for replenishing after a service, or for a drop-in as a quick pick-me-up during your day.
Taking care of your skin Whether you’re receiving a facial in the spa or picking up products to use at home, both lines are designed to take special care of your skin. The Neal’s Yard home line is organic and hypo-allergenic and uses ingredients sourced from ethical suppliers. The Phytomer line used for treatments is naturally marine-based and uses the power of the sea to revitalize your skin.
