In the middle of the world’s busiest, most exciting island lies a secret place. It is a place of absolute serenity, healing and rejuvenation. You are no longer in Manhattan; you are in a space of timelessness. At Primavera Spa, we offer a healing experience that has its origins in the wisdom of the ancient world. Throughout the ages, the experience of healers and sages is that life is not linear and fixed but rather a world of gradations and of phases of subtlety.
Underlying the apparent phenomenal world is a more refined realm of energy and creation; this is the realm of the 5 elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Sky. It is the principles of the 5 elements and their healing energies upon which we base all our treatments and products. Our treatments and products begin with the idea that the skin is the door to inner health. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and serves as a link to all the other organs.
Physicians are now reviving the age-old practice of delivering medicine through the skin. So great, in fact, is the ability of the skin to absorb substances that one drop of essential oil placed on the fingertip will show up in hair analysis ten minutes later. Therefore, the skin is the starting point in all our treatments. We treat the skin as though it is a living, breathing organ that expands and contracts, senses and responds, knows as well as remembers, ceaselessly dying as well as becoming.
