Aromatherapy with Indigenous Medicinal Herbs: Honoring Elkhart Lake’s Origins

At Aspira Spa, we hold a deep reverence for the natural world, and our Cedars Massage is a testament to that reverence. This holistic massage incorporates aromatherapy using indigenous medicinal herbs, paying homage to the pristine waters of Elkhart Lake. This glacial lake, born from the remnants of a glacier, is fed by tens of thousands of springs, making it one of the cleanest and fourth deepest lakes in Wisconsin. It’s no wonder the Potawatomi tribe named it “Great Elk Heart Lake,” as its shape mirrors that of an elk’s heart, or so the legend goes. Native Americans believed that the waters of Elkhart Lake possessed rejuvenating and curative powers, and we aim to capture that essence in the Cedars Massage.

Honoring the Four Elements: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire

As you embark on this journey, we honor the significance of water—the lifeblood of Elkhart Lake—and the four elements that shape our world: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. Our skilled therapists perform sacred ceremonies that connect you to these elements, allowing you to find balance and harmony within yourself, just as the lake finds its equilibrium over time.

Craniosacral Head and Neck Massage Techniques: Unwinding by the Water’s Edge

Towards the end of your 80-minute session, your therapist will perform craniosacral head and neck massage techniques. The gentle touch and rhythmic movements are inspired by the serene presence of Elkhart Lake, fostering a sense of peace and relaxation that flows like the lake’s waters.

Cedar-Sprig Filled Weighted Blanket: Embracing the Healing Power of Water

The grand finale of the Cedars Massage Experience is the placement of a fresh native cedar-sprig filled weighted blanket over your body. This comforting weight, reminiscent of the lake’s gentle embrace, is paired with the soothing aroma of cedar. Together, they create a cocoon of relaxation, allowing you to surrender to the curative powers of water, nature, and ancient traditions.

Embrace the Serenity of Elkhart Lake

The Cedars Massage Experience at Aspira Spa is not merely a treatment; it’s an immersion into the profound healing forces of nature and water. Whether you seek relaxation, stress relief, or a deeper connection with the natural world, this massage offers it all. After your 80-minute journey, you’ll leave feeling refreshed, balanced, and in harmony with the spirit of Elkhart Lake.
