3. Orchid Spa

Orchid Cruise Halong is supplied these spa services with our high skillful and professional staff. The mission of Orchid Spa is to make customized massages, facials and relaxing therapies available to everyone. Why is that important? Because massage therapy goes beyond relaxation and stress relief. It’s been proven to relieve headaches, treat physical conditions, improve flexibility, and even lower blood pressure. With so many healthy benefits, it’s important that massage is seen as more than a luxury. We would probably all agree that relaxation is a large part of massage, but massage is too good to save for rare occasions. That’s where the new day spa comes in. At Massage and Spa, we offer a wide variety of customized massages, so you can get away and get healthy more often.
Provided services:
Signature body massage: This gentle and rhythmic specialized massage is a blend of body stretch and body massage using our Signature Oil on the medians of the body that will invigorate our senses. Joints and muscles are stretched to release any blocked pathways or negative energy. The deep rolling and stretching movements used during this massage will rejuvenate your spirit, mind and body.
Deep tissue massage:
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). 
A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people’s blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60 minute deep tissue massage. Additionally, a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that massage modalities like deep tissue reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.
Please talk with your professional massage therapist to see if a deep tissue massage therapy would be beneficial for you.
Aromatherapy body massage:
Aromatherapy uses essential oils that are thought to have healing properties. These oils are the concentrated essences taken from the flowers, fruit, seeds, leaves and bark of certain plants. There are about 400 essential oils, but only about 40 are commonly used in aromatherapy. Aromatherapists believe aromatherapy can boost well being, relieve stress and help to refresh your body.
Aromatherapy massage uses essential oils derived from plants to achieve therapeutic benefits. In aromatherapy massage, essential oils are usually mixed with a carrier oil like sweet almond, apricot kernel, or grapeseed oil. A relaxing aromatherapy massage, for instance, might have lavender or bergamot, while a massage for sore muscles might include peppermint and eucalyptus. Before your first aromatherapy massage session, your massage therapist will conduct an initial consultation with you to learn about your desired outcome. They might ask about the current state of your work life, home life, physical health and mental state to learn about what you need.
Herbal essential oil treatment:
Herbs not only add taste and texture to food, but are also abundant sources of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and unique medicinal properties. Certain herbs and spices can even help you maintain a healthy body weight, as they promote weight loss.
“Herbs” and “spices” are often used interchangeably, however there are differences between them. Herbs are obtained from the leaves of herbaceous or non-woody plants, and are used in larger amounts than spices. Spices, on the other hand, are obtained from roots, flowers, fruits, seeds, or bark, and are usually used in smaller amounts than herbs because of their higher potency and stronger flavor.
Herbs come in various forms, including dried leaves and teas. But this site focuses on herbal oils, which you can make at home or purchase at health food stores. These oils have their own set of uses and benefits, from food preparation to skin therapy and other practical uses.
Herbal oils can be taken or used in different ways, such as for cooking and topical application. They can also be essential or infused. Essential oils require a large quantity of plant material and need to be diluted before use because they are concentrated. Infused oils, on the other hand, use only a small amount of plant material and are used full-strength. Essential oils can be used in different ways, including aromatherapy, skin massage, adding them to bathwater, using them in a compress, or burning them in a diffuser.
In general, using fresh herbs is preferred to getting processed varieties. Just as using too much of any food or health product can carry health risks, herbal oils should be used moderately, and are NOT a substitute for a nutritious, balanced diet. Pregnant women especially need to consult their physician before consuming or using these oils.
Orchid Halong Cruise is offered a convenience and breeze restaurant
