Cool Down with Cryotherapy

Miami, Wellness

As the mercury rises this summer, head to Tierra Santa Healing House to embrace the chill of cryotherapy for a refreshing summer boost.



Faena’s spa has added a cold plunge pool to its long list of healing modalities. “Cryotherapy not only cools you down but also invigorates your body and mind,” said Spa Director Agustina Caminos. “Plus, it has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe sun-kissed skin, making it a must-have for post-beach pampering.”

Other benefits include chronic pain relief, improved muscle recovery, boosted circulation, and mood enhancement triggered by the release of endorphins and other feel-good hormones.

Guests can book the new 60- or 90-minute Cryo Scrub Ritual in the private Scrub Room. The experience starts with a personalized cleansing ritual on a rose quartz-infused marble slab using a full-body dry brush followed by a green tea and mint scrub to remove impurities from the skin. Next is a visit to the cedar sauna to amplify purification.

“After the sauna, guests dip into the cold plunge for as long as they can handle,” said Caminos. The ritual concludes with a calming body massage using quinoa balm to boost hydration, increase collagen production, and improve skin elasticity.

Quinoa Bliss

“This summer, we’ve added a new treatment to the spa menu using quinoa,” said Agustina Caminos, the spa director at Tierra Santa Healing House.

This 90-minute treatment combines a massage using dry brushing and lymphatic drainage, as well as remodeling techniques using purified quinoa oil drops to boost hydration, increase collagen production, and prevent loss of skin elasticity.

“It’s the perfect cure for dehydrated summer skin as it adds moisture and nutrition, leaving the skin softer and healthier,” she added. The massage can be paired with a vitamin-infused IV drip before or after the treatment for maximum hydration and to boost the body’s energy levels to fight heat fatigue.
