A lot of us are great at staying active and fit – but how about taking the time we need to recover? Rest and recovery are important aspects of any fitness routine because they allow the body time to repair and strengthen itself in between workouts.

Now you can take your recovery to the next level here in Miami. Carillon Miami Wellness Resort has elevated The Spa at Carillon Miami with new health and wellness offerings.

“Wellness has always been at the core of our resort, and we are pleased to debut the next phase of The Spa at Carillon Miami with these new experiences,” said Tammy Pahel, Vice President of Spa Operations, Carillon Miami Wellness Resort. “The wellness industry continues to grow and evolve, and we are proud to be changing with it – continuing to be the top wellness resort in South Florida, providing unmatched options for health, well-being and beauty.”

The Carillon is the largest spa and wellness space in the region at 70,000 square feet, and it features a one-of-a-kind Thermal Experience with an Herbal Laconium, Finnish Sauna, Crystal Steam Room, and Thermal Heated Loungers. There is also a Hydro Circuit with a Vitality Pool, Experiential Rains, Foot Bath and a Cold Experience in the Igloo Suite.

Outside of your typical massages, there are some specific treatments geared towards helping the body to recover. Here are four that are highly recommended by the Carillon.

Himalayan Salt Stone Massage

Combined with intensive deep tissue technique, Himalayan salt stones are used to revive fatigued muscles, rebalance the body and melt away stress; providing a healing, calming and relaxing experience. The heated stones help release deep-seated tension on the deeper muscle layers and expand blood vessels to encourage blood flow throughout the body. Their sedative effect can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Fitness Body Active Treatment

An energizing and remodeling treatment post work-out. Using a body mask made with yellow clay from Brazil, enriched with a plankton extract to stimulate your metabolism. Its efficacy is boosted by using a Tui-Na technique. Ideal for combining with a fitness program or to be included in an anti-cellulite and firming program.

Salt Float Bath Therapy

This therapy offers a deep relaxation state achieved by allowing the body to recover from stress. Pain is relieved, blood flow is stimulated through all the tissues, natural endorphins are released, and the brain gives out alpha waves associated with relaxation and meditation. The 800 pounds of salt relaxes the muscle tissue and releases muscle tissue pain. We tried this one and while 60 minutes seemed like a long time to lay still with our thoughts, we loved how zen we felt and by the end of the session, found ourselves wishing we had more time.

Infrared Sauna

By sweating, one activates and intensifies the elimination of toxins. You eliminate about seven times more toxins with an infrared sauna than a traditional sauna. Infrared heat yields additional benefits in a significant way, beyond relaxation. Benefits are detoxification, relaxation, pain relief, weight loss, improves circulation, reduces inflammation, and provides skin purification.

In addition to those spa experiences, the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort also has sessions for accessing your metabolic health and aerobic capacity. This two-part service is recommended for people who want to change their body composition, increase stamina and fitness, or improve sports performance. They also have an in-house DEXA scan to provide highly accurate measurements of body composition.
