Anti-Aging Stem Cell Therapy

This therapy uses stem cells, primarily extracted from the Sequoia Tree, well known for it’s longevity and growth capacity (it grows to one of the tallest trees in the world).  Another contributor to this potent elixir is the grape flower due to it’s high content of polifenoles and flavonoides, which are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents and protect the blood vessels. 

The treatment begins with a forty minute Full Body Massage. Then a deep facial cleansing is followed by the application of this potent product. Special attention is given to the delicate skin around the eyes and lips, increasing moisture to these areas. Then we concentrate on the face, neck and neck lines using a grape extract. After removing the product we use a clarifying tonic which prepares the skin for a gentle peel derived from the Bamboo plant. Once this is removed, a facial massage is applied to bring the blood circulation and oxygenation to the skin surface promoting rejuvenation and preparing the skin to maximize the absorption of the final mask which relaxes the skin tissue. Finally a moisturizing cream is applied which penetrates the neck and facial area providing the pleasant youthful results. 

These products are available for purchase at the Spa should you wish to continue the treatments upon your return home.

Candle Massage

For this treatment the therapist uses a candle consisting of pure vegetable wax. The wax is perfect for this treatment given its low melting point and warm, moisturizing oily properties. In addition to the calming effects of the warm, glowing candlelit ambience, these candles provide well being and relaxation, while the essential oils are penetrate and nourish the skin. The candles have been infused with a Jasmine-scented oil in order to improve the skin’s elasticity, while simultaneously providing a powerful soothing effect on both body and mind. This treatment decreases stress and helps to improve one’s mood. 

An alternate available candle treatment employs an infusion of Monoi Oil, recognized for its deep moisturizing, nourishing and soothing qualities. The wax in these candles provides elasticity to the skin thanks to the great capacity of Monoi Oil to retain hydration.

Purification Treatment

The Shamans possess a great vision for the countryside and, in particular, for plants often used – mainly for healing purposes.  In addition, they are specialists in using elements such as Fire, Water and Earth that they employ in order to call the spirits for assistance.  The over natural healing power of the Shaman is obtained through magical substances such as Crystals, Candles, Smoke and Eggs.  More objects employ more power.  The Shaman always carries these objects around.  According to Ecuadorian tradition the Shaman does not necessarily have to be a male. 

At La Mirage we are happy to introduce the healing powers of a Female Shaman who has inherited years of experience from her father, a recognized Shaman of this own in this region. The purification room at La Mirage is oriented towards the established indigenous healing practice for Body, Soul and Spirit. Taking these concepts into consideration, we are blending relaxation practices using the Floating Tub, the Shaman Ritual and, ultimately the Aromatherapy Spiritual Massage.

You are immersed in a tub infused with guayusa and ishpingo leaves. Both plants are only found in the rainforest. These essences are known to the Amazon people for their stimulating qualities and their ritual use to heal the inner organs of the body. In addition, we add mineral salts, lemongrass and essential oils to the water creating a truly luxurious and relaxing soak. Then your body is gently exfoliated with the guayusa and ishpingo leaves.
