Miami: Carillon Miami Wellness Resort
Located in Miami’s North Beach neighborhood, the 70,000-square-foot spa at the oceanfront Carillon will work with a guest to design a wellness program based on his specific needs, addressed through a variety of approaches that blend ancient techniques with forward-thinking technologies.
“Men are taking a holistic approach to their health, and we wanted to introduce a program that treated some of the top issues we were noticing men come in for, such as burnout and muscle recovery,” says Tammy Pahel, VP of spa and wellness operations. “The Restorative Health Program for Men is a new offering from our partner, Advanced Holistic Center, which utilizes traditional Chinese Medicine methods such as acupuncture, gua sha massage and cupping to release built-up stress and tension from the body and restore the male energy flow. Each session is 100 percent customizable, which allows men to utilize this program in a way that makes most sense to their specific needs. Our men’s Thermal Experience is also popular among our clients to enjoy after a workout or before a treatment. The Thermal Experience is connected to the men’s locker room and features a selection of different thermal chambers, including saunas and steam rooms, which allow men to further relax and unwind.”
