Itâ€™s so good it had to be part of the name â€“ MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa. Onsen Spa, an Aveda Lifestyle Salon, uses all organically plant-derived products and world-renowned services, along with a menu of eclectic treatments.
“Our staff is trained in Aveda rituals, and weâ€™re proud to have earned this prestigious partnership,” said Ginger Dunn, Onsen manager. Aveda Lifestyle Salon technicians must undergo rigorous training and adhere to policies established by the company.
The name Onsen originates from Japan and means hot springs . Providing a comprehensive experience, Onsen offers facials, 25 to 80 minute massages and a tempting menu of body services. Methods include Deep Tissue massage to target stressed areas with muscle tension; Fusion Stone Therapy, utilizing plants and herbs combined with hot and cold stones to balance and soothe the senses; Elixir Body Wrap, a massage with essential oils and a warm blanket cocoon; and Elemental Nature, personalized aromas paired with massage.
All treatments include a day pass to the spa with grotto-style pool and hot tub, state-of-the-art fitness center, locker rooms with private saunas, whirlpool baths and eucalyptus steam rooms along with forest views just outside. Located away from the casino floor, Onsenâ€™s relaxing atmosphere is on property yet worlds away.
Facials, manicures and pedicures are also offered at Onsen, including the Revitalizing Eye Treatment which diminishes fine lines, puffiness and dark circles; Elemental Nature facial treatment with tailored products to match all skin conditions; and Caribbean Therapy, an exfoliating paste with seaweed masque to smooth hands and feet. Waxing techniques utilize Aveda natural plant wax, essential oils and ingredients to ensure smooth skin.
Menâ€™s and womenâ€™s hair care from Up Dos for special occasions and birthdays to simple shampoo and cut are available in the salon. All hair services include a soothing scalp massage. Avedaâ€™s Full Spectrum, damage-free color, is 97% naturally derived and maintains the condition of the hair leaving it looking natural and vibrant.
A full array of services awaits men at Onsen, such as the Sport Facial, which restores moisture to close-shaven faces. The Ultimate Experience begins with a Sport Facial; then a Rosemary Mint Awakening treatment: body exfoliation with aromas and massage; followed with an Executive Manicure: hot towel exfoliation and trimmed, masculine nails.
Couples or friends can relax together with an Elemental Nature or Deep Tissue massage in a private room. Mothers-to-be can also enjoy a massage that focuses on the specific stresses and tensions of pregnancy.
