I recently spent several days at The Out of The Blue Capsis Elite Resort on the stunning island of Crete. The location of the resort, near Agia Pelagia and just twenty minutes from Heraklion, offers private beaches and views of the island landscape. The resort has a large wellness facility, the Euphoria Rejuvenating Spa. While staying at the resort, I indulged in several spa treatments that left me relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed.
Rejuvenating Holistic Treatments
The Euphoria Rejuvenating Spa has a variety of holistic treatments and therapies. These include facial and body scrubs, peels, and treatments, Reiki or Shiatsu massage, aromatherapy massages, and reflexology. The facial and body treatments include special cleansing techniques that promote drainage and de-congestion, as well as the release of tension.
Additionally, there are hydrotherapy treatments that you can experience in the spa pool. All of these treatments focus on wellbeing, health, stress reduction, and recuperation as well as, of course, beauty. There are yoga packages available, too, which focus on six days of yoga courses, fresh foods, and wellness.
Finally, Out of the Blue also offers anti-aging treatments such as Ultherapy, I-Lipo, and Botox. This resort is the only one in Greece to offer Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. The result is the growth of new collagen that reshapes your skin into a more youthful, firmer shape. I-Lipo is the latest in laser technology, which trims your body without pain or needles. Botox, the oldest of these treatments, uses injectable fillers to paralyse your muscles and reduce wrinkles.
Valmont and Algoane
The products that the spa uses are designed to counter the effects of aging. The brands are Valmont and Algoane, and they are used to complement each other. Many of the multi-day packages that the spa offers will use one brand in one treatment and the other in the next treatment.
Nutrition Consultation at the Spa
The Euphoria Rejuvenating Spa at the Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort has several nutrition consultations and tests that detail various stresses and chemicals in the body. Using their team of doctors, clinical nutritionists, and wellness experts, you can be assured that your health is in good hands as you create a custom plan for your overall health. This plan is one you can take with you when you leave!
The Dukan Diet
The spa highlights the Dukan diet, crafted by French nutritionist Pierre Dukan. The method is simple, just four steps. Over the course of your time at the spa, you will have a general consultation, your meals will be prepared by talented chefs, and you will follow a daily exercise plan in the Fit4Life centre.
The custom plans are easy to follow and do not include any type of portion control or calorie counting. However, you will see noticeable weight loss and decreased body fat and blood pressure. While the typical length of time required for you to rejuvenate your body and mind is between 7 and 14 days, the program is designed to ensure you can follow it on your own upon your return home.
Another benefit at the Euphoria Spa and Fit4Life wellness facility are their Detoxification programs. Whether you are seeking to cut out coffee, alcohol, sugar, or fatty acids, the team of wellness experts and nutritionists can offer you a package that is divided into three parts.
The nutritional aspect focuses on promoting healthy changes that rid your body of excess waste. The mental aspect focuses on improving your sense of wellbeing, and the physical aspect minimises the added chemicals into your body and introduces healthier hair, a boost of energy, and anti-aging benefits.
Combined with the luxurious Cretan lifestyle and the undoubtedly beneficial sun and salt water, a wellness program at the Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort is an ideal destination retreat.
My Spa Treatment Experience
The Euphoria Rejuvenating Spa offers a variety of holistic services, from massages and facials to anti-aging techniques, rejuvenating body wrap treatments, and a hammam.
We began our day with a short swim in the spa pool, then transitioned into the Finnish sauna, where we let the heat and steam open our pores. After the sauna, we moved into the hammam, which is not a traditional Turkish hammam but a tiled steam bath room.
After my sauna and hammam, I had a 50 minute aromatherapy massage. It was pure luxury!
Finally, my spa treatments ended with a relaxing 35-minute facial that re-energised and hydrated my skin using their signature Swiss Valmont products.
My experience at the spa was absolute perfection. Before leaving, Celeste and I sipped a cup of tea in the serene pool and lounge room. After such a pleasant morning at the spa, I spent the rest of the day in bliss.
Euphoria Rejuvenating Spa is an invigorating retreat destination for anyone seeking to rejuvenate their mind, body, and soul among the ancient ruins of Crete, Greece. I recommend the spa and their treatment facility if you are staying at the Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort!
