relaxationTAKE NO CHANCES, VISIT A SPA TO BE STEAMED, MASSAGED AND POLISHED INTO TOTAL RELAXATION, WRITES CHRISTINA PFEIFFER

With a stunning coastline, pristine national parks, seaside resorts and charming hinterland towns, the Sunshine Coast is a destination that immediately puts you in a relaxed state of mind. The sweeping beaches and rolling hills are ideal for nurturing the soul, but if you need more help there are plenty of world-class health spas to help you wind down.

Among the eclectic range of treatments available to melt away your stress are ancient Tibetan remedies, Greek and Roman-inspired bathing rituals, gentle Balinese healing and even antioxidant vino therapy from France.

There’s more than one way to absorb the benefits of a good wine. At Stephanie’s Ocean Spa, the antioxidant properties of the grape are used to soothe the skin and slow the ageing process with either a vinotherapy body polish, body wrap or wine bath. The extensive menu also offers treatments such as a hot stone massage and organic skin therapy.

The treatment suites are equipped with the latest and greatest in spa technology. Luxuriate with friends in a triple- treatment room with its flotation colour therapy pool or enjoy a luxurious couple’s retreat in the geisha spa suite. www.stephanies.com.au
