The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills has introduced a new signature massage, The Surrender Massage, meant for guests to surrender completely into blissful relaxation. The Surrender Massage was created in a unique collaboration by six of the Spa’s top massage therapists, utilising the team’s most advanced, original and secret manual techniques, along with leading spa consultant Jean-Guy de Gabriac, using subtle techniques to unlock nervous tensions and powerful strokes to melt physical knots, such as acupressure points along the energy meridians, creative therapeutic Swedish movements, liberating trigger points, soothing stretching techniques and enrapturing crystal-infused oils.
“All too often, treatment protocols are dictated by product brands remotely, but this signature massage was birthed out of the expertise of our senior-level massage therapists, with the guidance of spa consultant Jean-Guy de Gabriac,” says Michael Newcombe, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills and head of the Global Spa and Wellness Task Force Team for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
The Surrender Massage is meant to release deep tensions on the physical, emotional and mental levels. The treatment begins with long Swedish massage strokes using crystal-infused oils, and then gently incorporates stretching, and energy healing around acupressure points along the Chinese meridians. This signature massage can also be customised to include deep tissue massage, based on preference. Guests can select from one of four crystal-infused oils, each with different beneficial properties.
During this treatment, muscles are oxygenated by the cardiovascular system, with a nurturing sense of warmth, and toxins are flushed out through the lymphatic system, boosting the immune system and clarifying the skin. Muscles and tendons are stretched and relaxed to improve the range of motion, and nelatonin is released to induce a relaxing sensation, while serotonin and oxytocin are released to create a sense of joy throughout the body. The Surrender Massage offers a revitalised body, clear mind and peaceful heart. This 50-minute version of the massage is priced at USD 210 and the 80-minute signature treatment is priced at USD 280.
