The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston announces today the opening of The Spa. The new, 20,000-square-foot urban oasis offers unique treatment rooms, including a couples suite with a sumptuous en-suite bathtub and shower; tranquility pools with body-contouring hot stoned daybeds; aromatherapy-infused steam rooms; detoxifying high temperature, low humidity saunas; multi-sensory thermal showers; state-of-the-art Technogym fitness center; and quiet lounges with zero gravity chairs to unwind after a busy day.
The Spa indulges guests with an unparalleled wellness menu featuring exclusive products, rituals, massages, aromatic oils, body and facial treatments, body scrubs, and the latest innovations in skincare techniques.
The Post Oak Hotel is the first spa in Texas and the first AAA Five-Diamond hotel in the nation to partner with Cinq Mondes, the French pioneer and expert in spa rituals and treatments cultivated from the world’s most unspoiled regions: Brazil, Japan, Polynesia, Bali, Switzerland, Morocco, India, and Thailand. Each ritual is thoughtfully derived from the region’s techniques, beliefs, and practices to deliver a sensorial experience that establishes wellbeing, radiance, relaxation, regeneration, beauty and balance for the body and mind. All therapists endured 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. An unforgettable transformation results from a simultaneous, dual-therapist cranial acupressure and foot reflexology while fragrant Moroccan eucalyptus and cinnamon awaken the senses.
Another unique treatment inspired by a Japanese wellness ritual is the “Ko Bi Do Lift”, a highly effective and 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, this next evolution technology seamlessly integrates six high-performance functions to deliver a results-oriented facial experience. The Spa’s “In-Skin Ultimate Radiant Complexion” is a two-hour superior treatment featuring microdermabrasion, oxygen, LED lighting, radio frequency, electroporation, and air massage.
Another proud partner of The Spa is Jacqueline Piotaz, known for their revolutionary and environmentally-friendly skincare products made in Switzerland. Guests can enjoy this anti-aging, luxury brand in the Spa’s signature “Pollution Defense” facial treatment. This revolutionary triple-action peel and refining mask hydrates the skin, removes impurities and creates a protective layer against harmful environmental toxins and rapid aging.
Spa therapists use essential oils from Aromatherapy Associates of London to deliver a personalized experience. These aromatic oils awaken the senses to provoke emotional and physical responsiveness and establish mindfulness, stress-reduction, positivity, and emotional balance. The ultimate “Bespoke Aromatherapy Journey” 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 well-being. This aromatherapy ritual is designed using precious emollients and sensorial oils for a unique journey unlike any other.
Signature massages and treatments for men can also be found at The Spa at The Post Oak. “The Modern Man’s Facial” uses a potent multi-layer peel and anti-stress massage to soften skin, heal shaving bumps and rejuvenate complexion, while the “Rebalance Massage” blends therapeutic oils and deep tissue massage techniques to alleviate everyday stress.
