How to Stay Well While Travelling
Often, the most challenging part of a getaway is maintaining wellness for the duration of your travels. When you are out of your daily routine, your body and mind can feel off balance.
Rather than lament the shift, take advantage of this time to introduce new experiences and healthy routines to your day. You may want to experiment with various activities (or inactivity) to gauge what will benefit you the most. At Forest Rise, we provide the ideal setting for guests seeking all levels of activity and indulgence.
Forest Rise is well known for its indulgences. One of our most popular offerings is our specially prepared meals. After you book your meal, in-house chefs from Olsen’s Catering will arrive and prepare a three-course gourmet meal at your chalet.
Private Massage in Your Chalet
Offered by Massage Southwest
Phone: 0409 686 773
A soothing and rejuvenating massage is often precisely what we need to relax and realign ourselves. This is especially true if you are dealing with an illness, recuperating from a medical procedure, or overwhelmed by the persistent demands of daily life. The expert massage therapists from Massage Southwest bring everything you need to enjoy an outstanding bit of self-care. You can choose from several spa treatments, including manicures, pedicures, rejuvenating facials, and massage packages.
- The Swedish Massage – This massage combines traditional Swedish massage with Reiki and Reflexology techniques. The Swedish massage treatment relaxes muscles, relieves aches, and improves circulation. Available in 45, 60, and 90-minute increments.
- Huna Massage – Huna is an ancient Hawaiian massage initially intended to honour the body as the temple of the soul. During a Huna massage, your mind and spirit are relaxed as your body experiences a deep, rhythmic, and reconnecting massage. Available in 45, 60, and 90-minute increments.
- Full Body Indulgence – The 90-minute Full Body Indulgence begins with an exfoliation using traditional ingredients to smooth, cleanse, and moisturize the body. A full body massage follows using either deep tissue methods or a mixture of Swedish, therapeutic, and reflexology techniques.
- Sheer Indulgence – You will begin this two-hour session with an aromatherapy massage that incorporates elements of the Swedish massage technique. You then experience a relaxing Huna massage to take you into an even more relaxed state. The massages are followed by a one-hour facial that will leave your skin exfoliated, soft, and glowing.
Your choices are not limited to massages. You can also indulge in facials, manicures, and/or pedicures performed by Massage Southwest professionals.
