‘Sensorial sanctuary’: 20,000sq ft spa opens at Houston’s Post Oak Hotel
POSTED 21 Dec 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
The Post Oak Hotel in Uptown Houston has opened a 20,000sq ft (1,858sq m) spa featuring treatments that take inspiration from around the world.

The Spa includes a couples suite with en-sure bathtub and shower, tranquility pools with body-contouring hot stoned daybeds, aromatherapy-infused steam rooms, multiple saunas, thermal showers, Technogym fitness center, and quiet lounges with zero gravity chairs.

The Spa’s menu features exclusive products, rituals, massages, aromatic oils, body and facial treatments, body scrubs, and the latest innovations in skincare techniques.

Owned by Businessman Tilman J. Fertitta – who also owns Landry’s, Inc., Golden Nugget Casinos and the Houston Rockets – The 250-bedroom Post Oak Hotel opened in March 2018, and includes a two-level Rolls Royce dealership inside the 38-story tower.

The Spa at The Post Oak Hotel is the first spa in Texas to partner with French skincare brand Cinq Mondes, which creates spa rituals and treatments cultivated from the world’s most unspoiled regions: Brazil, Japan, Polynesia, Bali, Switzerland, Morocco, India, and Thailand.

Each ritual is derived from the region’s techniques, beliefs, and practices to deliver a sensorial experience that is designed to establish wellbeing, radiance, relaxation, regeneration, beauty and balance for the body and mind. All therapists have gone through an intensive eight-week training to learn these ancient traditions and pharmacopeias.

Exclusive to The Post Oak Hotel is the Rituals of Five Worlds, a signature treatment featuring a warmed, steam poultice massage and gentle body stretching with a medicinal Javanese fusion of lemongrass, bergamot and ginger to release muscular tension. The treatment also includes a simultaneous, dual-therapist cranial acupressure and foot reflexology with fragrant Moroccan eucalyptus and cinnamon designed to awaken the senses.

“Nowhere else in the world can someone receive our Rituals of Five Worlds treatment,” said Daisy Tepper, spa director at The Post Oak Hotel. “With more than 145 different languages spoken in Houston, we were inspired to develop a diverse and cultured experience that pays homage to ancient traditions from masters around the world.”

Another unique treatment inspired by a Japanese wellness ritual is the Ko Bi Do Lift, a non-invasive face lift that begins with an in-depth purification of the skin. An intense massage lifting technique is performed, exercising the facial muscles and contouring the face for a toned, plump effect.

Additionally, The Post Oak Hotel is the only hotel in Texas to feature the In-Skin facial system. German-engineered and Italian-manufactured, the technology integrates six high-performance functions to deliver a results-oriented facial experience. The Spa’s “In-Skin Ultimate Radiant Complexion” is a two-hour treatment featuring microdermabrasion, oxygen, LED lighting, radio frequency, electroporation, and air massage.

“This In-Skin technology was only offered in Los Angeles until now,” said Tepper. “We know the importance of technology in today’s world, and this In-Skin treatment is truly a one-of-kind experience. Guests see immediate results.”

The Spa also features treatments from Swiss skincare brand Jacqueline Piotaz, including the signature Pollution Defense facial treatment. This triple-action peel and refining mask is designed to hydrate the skin, remove impurities and create a protective layer against harmful environmental toxins and rapid ageing.

Essential Oils from Aromatherapy Associates are used in the Bespoke Aromatherapy Journey, which begins with a one-on-one consultation to develop a curated formula of aromatherapy oils and practices based on the guest’s mental and physical wellbeing. This aromatherapy ritual is designed using precious emollients and sensorial oils.

“Of course, we offer basic spa services; but we wanted this to be a unique oasis for hotel guests and area-residents to escape the city’s fast-pace stressors,” said Tepper. “We transport you to a sensorial sanctuary where beauty, technology, relaxation and personalised service create the ultimate rejuvenation.”
