Las Vegas' Top Star-Worthy Spa Treatments
How do Hollywood stars relax among the neon lights of Las Vegas?
They take to the city's most luxurious spas and enjoy treatments from hot stone massages and lavender body scrubs to opulent facials and therapies.
One of the latest spa trends that counts Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Oprah Winfrey as fans is Ayurvedic therapy. Rooted in the East Indian philosophy of harmony and balance, the MGM Grand Spa offers six different treatments, including a personalized chakra balancing session that helps bring to life the "energetic centers in the body."
The MGM Grand also allows Ayurveda followers such as Demi Moore to cure their late-night hangovers with a Headache Remedy treatment or get a Foot Samadhi.
Lauren Conrad -- who was in Vegas last month celebrating her 24th birthday -- loves getting warm-oil massages with a scalp treatment, like the Peppermint Scalp Refresher at Canyon Ranch Spa Club. The treatment, which is an enhancement to any of the massages at The Venetian's spa, offers "a refreshing blend of essential oils" to help stimulate circulation from head to toe.
The next time Mariah Carey -- who is launching her own brand of champagne -- is in Vegas, she'll likely pair some bubbly with the Bellagio spa's Caviar Fusion Facial. The treatment "revitalizes, hydrates, and firms the skin through a synergistic blend of rich botanicals" including marine caviar and crushed pearls.
Recently, Brooke Shields stopped into Palms Place's Drift Spa for a manicure, pedicure and a Drift massage, a "classic European therapy that utilizes a combination of long, rhythmic strokes and kneading techniques to increase circulation." The 80-minute treatment also promises to relieve any A-lister's stress.
