Guam - The Hilton Guam Resort and Spa recently held a ribbon-cutting event for the opening of a new spa that offers unique treatments from Japan to relax and rejuvenate all who walk through its doors. From the moment you step foot into Spa Ayualam, your senses will be awakened.
Located at the Tasi Club at the Hilton Guam Resort, Spa Ayualam offers a range of treatments for those looking to get away. Hilton marketing director Crystal Sablan said, "It's actually a spa brand based out of Japan. We decided to bring it to the island to bring something different, unique treatments, and specialty facials."
Spa manager Megumi Fujimoto says Spa Ayualam features six beautiful rooms that provide an array of specialized services tailored to create a balanced state of mind and transcend customers into a state of relaxation and healing. "We have a Balinese massage using oil, body massage," Fujimoto explained. "We use the hot stones and put it on the back and make you relax and soften the muscle."
Spa director Tomoko Horibe says the ten staffers have been trained for the last two months on unique techniques that were brought to Guam from Japan. "We have very new treatments here in Guam. We have the power tree full body massage, which is using tree stick and then also for facial treatment we have some new equipment to use for inner muscles to make our face very small and lift up," Horibe said.
Visitors will also want to check out the herbal tent that uses a special blend of seven herbs to help detoxify your body in a specialized tent. "In herbal tent, when we get in here like fifteen minutes stay and so many body wastes comes out. So you can feel your body is very light and also your body's stiffness will be very light after that," Horibe said.
Spa Ayualam also offers abhyanga, which provides a customer with two massage therapists. "We go for four hands moving at one time, so we really have a technique of harmony for two therapists," said Fujimoto.
