Massages are a staple of any spa and The Trellis has many to choose from. Guests may like the traditional Swedish massage, an aromatherapy rub, warm stone therapy, deep tissue massages, upper body massages or may need a thermal sport massage to assist the healing of athletic injuries.
Facials are a speciality of The Trellis Spa and there are many unique offerings, most of which are designed for aging skin. The Diamond Life Infusion facial is a youth elixir. It rejuvenates the skin with massage and guarantees brighter, younger, firmer skin. The Diamond White facial evens the skin tone and treats and prevents the pigmentation changes that come with age. La Alternativa facial is a non-invasive wrinkle reducer that uses lipofiller to fill existing wrinkles and lines. The Oxygen Awakening facial treats with a blast of pure oxygen to reduce the signs of epidermal congestion that come with environmental pollution. The Age-Defying facial uses active ingredients such as amino acids and vitamins A, E, and C to reduce fine lines, support sagging skin and brighten skin tone. The Ceutical facial is for sensitive skin and treats redness, improves skin congestion and softens and reduces inflammation. The Trellis Signature facial uses a luxurious mask to cleanse and brighten the face. Other facial offerings include microdermabrasion, treatment for dark, puffy eyes and therapy for the delicate skin around the eyes and lips.
The Trellis Spa also has unique body treatments. The Diamond Experience Rose uses diamond dust to exfoliate the skin and rose oil to reduce signs of aging. The Slimming Body Mask starts with a creamy full-body exfoliation using glycolic acid and follows with a seaweed body mask to help slim the body. The Citrus Drench is a nutrient-rich body treatment that is ideal for sun-damaged skin. It uses a citrus scrub to exfoliate and a whipped vitamin C mask to revitalize the skin.
