Wine therapy has its benefits

Wine therapy, to some, might sound too good to be true.

The idea of vinotherapy (wine therapy) was created by Mathilde Cathiard-Thomas and her husband Bertrand Thomas. They discovered the powerful effects of grape seeds, skins and stems on skin from a professor at Pharmacy Faculty of Bordeaux, France.

The couple capitalized on their success with the opening of the world’s first wine spa in 1999. Les Sources de Caudalie is appropriately sited in a castle in the Bordeaux region in France.

At Naples Laser & MedSpa, your experience begins with one of our staff applying oils and dry body brushing your skin. Then, an aromatic Mediterranean honey & wine body masque is applied to gently draw out toxins while you are pampered with a scalp & foot massage.

Hot towels are used to remove the masque before a succulent red wine, grapeseed, & blackberry body polish renews and invigorates your skin. The process concludes with a luscious wine-inspired oil to secure moisture and provide skin-nutrient vitamins and antioxidants. The best part of this treatment is that you can enjoy a glass of wine and receive a wine glass as our gift to you!

This wine ritual is more than a massage, as it has the added benefit of exfoliating dead skin cells from your body. These skin cells tend to make a person’s body and face appear unhealthy. They can also diminish the effects of any topical beauty and healthy products you use. When the clinician performs the foot & scalp massage, they are providing more than relaxation. The most added benefit is increasing blood flow and oxygen to your head and feet, which naturally cleanses your body of unwanted toxins.
