THE WELL Spa At Miramonte Resort & Spa Brings a Creative, Playful Edge to Traditional Spa Services with the Pittura Festa

Discerning guests are experiencing unique painted mud treatments at THE WELL Spa

(INDIAN WELLS, Calif.) - Discerning guests, at the Coachella Valley's only Mobil Rated spa, THE WELL Spa, are experiencing unique painted mud treatments and bring a partner along for a private painting party designed to enrich the skin and improve overall health - in a fun, interactive manner. The Pittura Festa (Painting Party) Treatment encompasses interactive, therapeutic fun.

The festive treatment can be tailored for individuals, couples and girlfriends alike. The specially designed Pittura Festa cabanas can hold up to four guests. With a palette of colorful muds and clays along with brushes, the therapist encourages guests to find their artistic side - not to mention their inner child - painting shades of red, green, yellow, and black upon themselves or their partner. The vibrantly colored pigments are highly therapeutic for the skin; red is Sedona clay - high in iron; green contains algae and is re-mineralizing; yellow has aloe ingredients for moisturizing, and the black /charcoal is for purifying the pores of the skin. Post-painting artists are then enveloped in a cocoon wrap and bask in the warm desert sun in their private cabana, letting the nourishing muds detoxify the body and help soothe the muscles and joints. After allowing some time for privacy, the therapist performs scalp massages and personalized pressure-point facials, finishing with warm towels that cover the face. Guests then proceed to the Swiss shower where they can rinse the muds off. Immediately following, guests receive a special body lotion application plus the option to indulge in a full body massage for an additional fee.

"We are finding that more and more guests are looking for fun and different things to do, not only with their significant others, but with their best friends as well," says Jennifer Di Francesco, Director of THE WELL. "The Pittura Festa has found its place as the ultimate in couples romance and bachlorette party fun, giving guests a little adventure and pampering."

Individuals will find THE WELL a tranquil haven of charm and sophistication while couples alike will be allured by the romance-inspired experience. Unique among Southern California spas in its intimacy and attention to detail, THE WELL is a sanctuary of relaxation. THE WELL features a full range of health, wellness, and beauty facilities as well as regional treatments that are distinctive and unique.

Their services incorporate techniques inspired by Tuscan living including therapeutic muds, wine extracts, pure essential oils, and refreshing waters. The spa program was designed to accomplish one important goal, to enliven one's senses and bring a sense of relaxation and rejuvenation to the body and spirit.
