 Green Coffee Body Wrap with Sabai Stone Therapy

At the Club at Hammock Beach, an upscale resort and private year-round residence for club members, paradise is not just a fantasy—it’s a way of life. Situated on 2.4 miles of pristine beach, the community boasts an oceanside golf course, fabulous restaurants, three pools and a fitness center. After all the fun in the sun (it’s 80 degrees almost year-round), guests and members alike make good use of the full-service spa, which features 10 treatment rooms stocked with high-end Pevonia Botanica products. With firming body wraps, toning facials and soothing massages on the service menu, The Spa at the Club at Hammock Beach is a non-negotiable luxury for sunbathers and sports lovers alike.

The Green Coffee Body Wrap with Sabai Stone Therapy, a 90-minute treatment recently introduced at the spa, gives guests double the benefits—first, the Green Coffee Body Mask detoxifies and smoothes skin while tightening and toning, then the Sabai stones are used at specific points in the body to eliminate tension and promote well-being. Says Pevonia Regional Director Dawn McLellan, “The treatment also detoxifies the body and reduces fluid retention, which makes it the perfect anti-cellulitic treatment.”

The Sabai stones are essential for the therapy portion, since they are non-porous black granite, ergonomically designed, and easily retain their temperature. They can be heated in either a microwave or a stone warmer. Explains Mclellan, “The Sabai stones are contoured to create different shapes that work on certain areas of the body to create unique sensations.” The service is suitable for anyone looking to rejuvenate her body, she adds, especially those going through a weight loss or fitness program or wishing to detox her system. When the service is complete, guests will feel thoroughly relaxed, refreshed and ready to bare some skin in a bathing suit poolside or at the beach.

Scents Essential

Before beginning the Sabai stone therapy, Mineral Massage Oil and an essential oil of the client’s choosing are massaged into the skin. Pevonia offers three different oils—Lavender, Neroli and Rosemary. Lavender is appropriate for a client who desires healing, calming and decongesting. Neroli, extracted from orange blossoms, is effective in counteracting insomnia and easing
tension and depression. Rosemary will replenish dry skin and alleviate eczema and seborrhea, making it suitable for older clients or those with problem skin. With a professional recommendation, any client can find the right aromatherapy for her.

 Green Coffee Body Wrap with Sabai Stone Therapy

Sabai therapy is a perfect complement to a body wrap, but you don’t need to book a full-body service to offer your clients its benefits. Sabai can be incorporated into a facial, used in hot stone massage, added to spa manicures and pedicures (for either massage or reflexology) and as part of a spa scalp treatment—or even as a stand-alone service, says Pevonia Regional Director Dawn McLellan. “Sabai,” a Thai expression for well-being, is hygienic and easy to use, making its functionality in the treatment room virtually endless. An instructional DVD is included with the purchase of the Sabai Stone Spa Therapy Complete System. Visit for more information.
