From time to time I receive inquiries from women looking for spas that offer pre- and post-natal treatments and was really delighted to find out about two new treatments now offered at The Lodge at Woodloch in Hawley, PA.
For women seeking treatments to assist with relaxation and rejuvenation, these two services by the Belli Skin Care baby line may be the answer as they’re also clinically proven to be safe for both mother and unborn child, according to Ginny Lopis, co-owner of The Lodge. (Visit www.belliskincare.com for more details on safety and efficacy.)
The Soothing Body Polish is a luxurious body treatment that begins with an invigorating scrub rich in anti-oxidants, followed by a gentle loofa cleansing using green tea and cucumber. Next, oils rich in Vitamin E and Kola Extract are applied on the belly to help prevent stretch marks, along with a foot massage of peppermint, tea tree and shea butter that leaves one feeling totally refreshed.
The Gentle Belli Facial is a custom belly treatment, designed to hydrate and refine skin at any stage of pregnancy. The treatment begins with a balancing herbal cleanser of green tea and cucumber; next a gentle exfoliation prepares the skin for a luxurious belly masque which helps increase elasticity and prevent stretch marks, accompanied by a soothing hand and foot massage. The treatment is concluded with a light belly massage featuring lavender and sweet almond oil, followed by a hydrating citrus lotion to soothe and uplift. The treatment can also be customized as a post-natal facial.
