Spa Treatment Watch: The Zero Gravity Pedicure

By October 19, 2012

Follow me on:

Have you ever been in a zero gravity chair?  I have, and they feel wonderful.   Yelo in Manhattan uses them for their nap chairs.  Originally designed to reduce the amount of force exerted on astronauts' spines during the high-speed launch into space, the recliners put your bod in a deeply relaxing position, where your heels are just a little higher than your head.

This position has a number of health benefits, including less pressure on the spine, reduced stress on the heart, and relief of muscle tension.  It lowers your blood pressure, but increases your circulation and blood oxygen levels.

So I love the idea of combining a zero gravity chair with a pedicure.   The Inn and Spa at Loretto in downtown Santa Fe has  two Zero Gravity Recliners for a new pedicure and reflexology treatment called "Heels Over Head" After soaking your feet in a copper basin filled with warm water, bath salts and rose petals, you lean back in the chair, covered up in a comfy Loretto blanket and scented eye pillow.  The technician then begins the pedicure and/or reflexology treatment, including exfoliation and massage.

"This treatment brings pampering to a whole new level," said Dana Ortega, Marketing Director at the Inn and Spa at Loretto. "We want our guests to feel they are being cared for in the most beneficial way in our spa, creating wellness from the inside out."   Pedicures include the following options: Classic, 45 minutes ($79),  Spa Pedicure, 55 minutes ($99), and Loretto pedicure, 80 minutes ($109).  Reflexology is $75 for a 25-minute treatment and $125 for 50 minutes.
