In Orlando, the theme park capital of the world, the action-packed, on-the-go mentality and thousands of steps logged while enjoying the exhilarating attractions can be tiring. With so much to see and do, rest time and actual quality sleep is often not made a priority. Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort intends to help travellers with its new signature Sleep Ritual Massage offered at The Spa. The treatment aims to induce a complete state of relaxation and sleep readiness, and is accompanied by a home care kit to assist with achieving the ideal sleep at home, night after night.
The Sleep Ritual Massage was developed in partnership with Robert Michael deStefano, sleep wellness expert and co-founder of wellness company Longeva. The custom treatment incorporates breathing techniques that focus on seven specific somatic zones, plus a combination of sleep-inducing botanical scents and touch therapies that are designed to be ultra-relaxing, eliminating stress and tension and creating the perfect state of sleep readiness. The 80-minute massage treatment, USD 360, is ideal to reserve at The Spa in the evening, after a light dinner.
“The Sleep Ritual Massage is equal parts sleep wellness education and motivation, stress detox and luxury escape,” says deStefano. “Combined with the take-home DreamKit, the treatment is a potential game-changer for parents, grandparents and anyone else who is not satisfied with their sleep.”
Guided by dreamy relaxation music and sleep-inducing aromas, the Sleep Ritual Massage is a multifaceted treatment that will take the guest through an incredibly relaxing journey that will sooth, stretch and expand the entire body, mind and spirit, creating a state of total sleep readiness.
The DreamKit includes the market-first SleepCeuticals products used in the Ritual Massage. Along with its all-natural skin nourishers and moisturisers, SleepCeuticals features a custom, blend of 15 sleep-inducing, non-synthetic botanical extracts and essential oils. The SleepCeuticals found in the DreamKit include Sanctify Dream Cream, Anoint Sleep Serum and the Dream Mist spray. Added into the kit is The Sleep Ritual Music, a downloadable sixty-minute recording of clinically studied sleep-inducing music (also used in the massage) and a simple, step-by-step guidebook written by deStefano.
Derek Hofmann, Senior Director of Spa at Four Seasons Resort Orlando, hopes that this new treatment will help guests better understand the importance of creating an environment for quality sleep.
The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Orlando is a true haven, featuring 18 treatment rooms including four couples’ suites and two couples’ spa bungalows, plus a full-service hair and nail salon. The Spa offers two co-ed relaxation lounges, plus a post-treatment Solarium room, and women’s and men’s locker rooms complete with whirlpool, steam room and Experience Shower.
