Winter Getaway: All Good Things Luxury Spa in Saratoga Springs

0

What a better way to spend a cold afternoon in February on America’s East Coast then pampering yourself at a spa? A great weekend getaway within four hours of both Boston and New York City is the Pavilion Grand Hotel, which is also home to luxury boutique spa All Good Things in Saratoga Springs New York. Be sure to read my separate write-up and review on the hotel, where we stayed for a few nights during our February stay.

I love the name and their philosophy — All Good Things started as a juice bar and later, a spa was added to the concept. From the very beginning, their belief to having great skin is working from the inside out, starting with a whole lotta water, organic ingredients, vegetable juices and reducing stress in your life.

Today, they offer traditional spa services and private yoga classes, which can be in the privacy of your suite or in their yoga studio on-site.

The spa offers skin care and massage services that are 100% natural and organic and all their facials, massage and body treatments can be performed in-spa or in-suite, which is a nice personalized touch. I love the fact that they also offer eye brow treatments (3D eye brow extensions) and eye lash extensions as well, which is a lovely treat in the middle of a cold winter season. Another great service for winter is their Foot Nirvana, where they wrap your feet in healing oils and aromas, then massage certain pressure points, which helps to increase circulation while softening and refreshing your skin. They also offer a full Swedish Leg massage as well.

Other treatments include waxing, body wraps, make-up applications and heat therapy.  New to their menu is a Rezenerate Facial Treatment by Osmosis Skincare, which is a non-invasive treatment that enhances collagen production, softens lines & wrinkles heals and decreases pigmentation, which makes a great choice for aging skin.  The two sister-team owners are huge fans of the Osmosis Skincare line, largely because it focuses on keeping the nutrients into your skin, rather than applying them and simply washing them off. From aging, Rosacea and acne to Eczema, Scarring, Psoriasis and Hyperpigmentation, the line has you covered.

There’s also an Osmosis Facial Infusion which is one of the most effective peels you can get, a great option for aging and weathered skin. Apparently, this 23 ingredient liposomal dermal infusion boosts collagen stimulation for 30 days following each treatment. You can add a Tama Microcurrent to any facial treatment, which I tried and….loved! Microcurrent is a form of mechanical massage using very low levels of electrical currant, which triggers the body’s natural cellular repair mechanism.

Used as an anti-aging tool, it diminishes the appearance of fine line and wrinkles by toning and rejuvenating facial muscles. I could actually feel the difference in my skin after the treatment — it was tighter and more refined and my pores were smaller.

The list of offerings is fairly comprehensive and they offer a bunch of enhancements to add to your pampering experience, including FAR Infrared Heat Therapy, Alpha Hydroxy Exfoliating treatments for the face and neck, an anti-aging hand treatment, an exfoliating lip treatment and a rejuvenating eye treatment.

If I had more time, I would have loved to try one of their Ayurvedic Body Wraps, which includes Detox, Stress Relief, Muscle Relief, Trim & Tone Body and a Hydrating Avocado Butter Wrap.

Since they started out offering juice cleanses, they have a comprehensive list of choices, all of which are made with organic ingredients.

  • Good Earth- romaine, celery, parsley, red apple, kale, cucumber, spinach, ginger, lemon
  • Green Booster- spirulina, orange, grapefruit, ginger, lemon, alkaline water
  • Cashew Power- turmeric, cashews, banana, vanilla, dates, almond milk
  • Green Goddess- romaine, celery, kale, cucumber, spinach, parsley
  • Chia Milk- almond milk, chia seeds, cinnamon
They also have a small gift shop on-site as well where they sell skincare products, make-up and clothing.

It’s a fabulous choice for an afternoon pampering when in upstate New York. You can book an appointment at their downtown Saratoga Springs location (below) or at their nearby Loudonville location on 475 Albany Shaker Road. More information can be found at www.allgoodthingsnewyork.com.
