In-room... and inexpressibly divine
Whether you’ve spent the day experiencing life in the 1800s at Old Salem, or tailgating at the Wake Forest University football game, it’s time to unwind and recline. At Kimpton Cardinal Hotel, your choice of soothing massages, aromatherapy body wraps, and deluxe facials couldn’t be any closer. That’s because our spa professionals come to you in the comfort of your guestroom or suite, armed with wild-crafted organic skin care products to nourish your skin and your senses. The goal is to make sure that you are, as they say in the South, “too blessed to be stressed.”
All massage oils are 100% organic sunflower oil blended with natural essential oils.
Choose from a range of massage therapy techniques, like Swedish, deep tissue, sports or reflexology, or ask your therapist to customize your massage treatment with a stress-busting combination of any or all of these techniques.
Aroma Journey Massage
Unwind during a sensory balancing massage experience with your choice of one of four aromatherapy blends infused with essential oils. A Harmony, Lavender, Soothing or Revitalizing. Reawaken your senses. Reconnect with nature. And restore your health.
Calm Mind Massage
Quiet the mind and soothe body and spirit. Temples and scalp are massaged with Calm Mind Oil, a restorative blend of peppermint and lavender oils created to help relieve headache tension and stress. Lavender Body Oil is applied to achieve an overall feeling of bliss as we customize your massage with a combination of techniques.
Mother-to-Be Harmony Massage
Designed to address the special needs of the mother-to-be, we combine tried and tested safe pregnancy massage techniques with a Chinese geranium-infused oil that promotes feminine energy and has a harmonizing effect on women. Helps to relieve tension in your lower and upper back and alleviate swelling in the hands and feet. Mother-to-Be Harmony Massages are not recommended during the first trimester of pregnancy.
Revitalizing Hot Stone Massage
Melt your cares away while smooth, polished river rocks are heated and used to massage your body. Stones are left in patterns on your body to balance the energy centers. Revitalizing Body Oil adds a wonderful aromatic element to the experience with essences of rosemary, juniper and grapefruit to reduce stress, stimulate circulation and balance and invigorate the body.
All treatments use products containing pure essential oils, natural botanicals and wild-crafted ingredients.
Please note: Body Treatments are not available for mothers-to-be.
