A visit to Evolve Spa in New Buffalo, is the right thing to do to avoid over heating in mid- day sun of Harbor Country beaches. Our cool spa is a great place to chill and relax, in a 69 to 71 degree comfort zone. The hottest service for men is the EXECUTIVE MANS SPA PACKAGE, which included a one hour DEEP tissue massage and a executive man one hour facial and a pedicure for $205.00. Great choice for the vacationing executive, who need relief from a HOT day at the golf course.
New clients, take advantage of our mid week 10% discount off of any MASSAGE treatment. The SUMMER SPLASH is the MOST popular package as the New Buffalo
sun heats up, cool down with some chilled champagne and a 30 minute massage and 30 minute facial for $99!!! If you still need help cooling down, read the following great tips:
Eat small meals and eat more often. The larger the meal, the more metabolic heat your body creates breaking down the food. Avoid foods that are high in protein, which increase metabolic heat.
Run your wrists under a cold tap for five seconds each every couple of hours. Because a main vein passes through this area, it helps cool the blood.
Eat spicy food. Although this may be the last thing you fancy in hot weather, curries and chillies can stimulate heat receptors in the mouth, enhance circulation and cause sweating, which cools the body down.

Take a tepid bath or shower just below body temperature, especially before bedtime. Although a cold shower might sound more tempting, your body generates heat afterwards to compensate for the heat loss.
If you have a basement, use it during the hottest hours of the day when the sun is highest. Basements are usually 10-15 degrees cooler than the upstairs part of the house.
Wear lightweight, light-colored cotton clothes. Heat is trapped by synthetic fibers, but cotton absorbs perspiration and its evaporation causes you to feel cooler. The light colors reflect the sun's radiation.
While you're out, keep the house curtains drawn to stop it heating up like a greenhouse.
You may be longing for a cold beer or a chilled white wine spritzer. But you should avoid alcohol because it dehydrates the body. You are better off with mineral water or low-sugar fizzy drinks. Also, avoid drinks with caffeine such as coffee and colas. These increase the metabolic heat in the body.
Women should replace their usual body moisturizer with a cooling aloe vera after sun product to use morning and night. This will help lower your skin temperature.
Slow down and avoid strenuous activity which will stimulate your body and raise its core temperature. If you must go jogging, do it during the coolest part of the day, which is usually before 7am.
Get Liquid Ice. This re-usable ice wrap is perfect for cooling hot skin. The cloth, pre-soaked in the Liquid Ice solution, cools instantly when removed from the packet without need for refrigeration.
Drink chrysanthemum tea. Practitioners say chrysanthemum is a cooling herb which clears the head.
Sleep on a feather or down pillow with a cotton pillowcase. Synthetic pillows will retain heat.The night before you go out for the day in the sun, roll some damp flannels up and pop them in the freezer. Take them with you in a plastic bag. Then, when you start to feel hot, unwrap them and place them over your face.Try a Native American herbal remedy called Black Cohosh which has been clinically proven to relieve hot flushes and night sweats in menopausal women. Recent research suggests it works on the hypothalamus, where it may help regulate body temperature.
Ditch your duvet and sleep under a sheet instead. Even better, put your sheets in a plastic bag and stick them in the fridge a couple of hours before going to bed. As we fall asleep our body temperature lowers, which is why it's difficult to sleep in hot weather. Cold sheets straight from the fridge should help you sleep better.

Swedish This European technique is geared for relaxation. Combining effleurage (long, sweeping strokes), kneading, vibration, pressure, and other manipulation techniques and slow movement, it is gentle and soothing, and leaves you more comfortable and relaxed, ready for a good night’s sleep or dinner with friends. It targets fatigue, nervous tension, and brain exhaustion. It’s the perfect massage for anyone who likes a light touch—which, surprisingly, includes many muscle-bound, iron-pumping folks.
Deep Tissue/Sports Massage This massage falls in the category of therapeutic massages, and is used to treat both acute and chronic problems. It alleviates soreness and stiffness in the muscle tissues, joints, and tendons, and increases flexibility and circulation. The best part is that the therapist provides the relief, but you get to call the shots about how deep you want the pressure to be. It is usually a full-body massage, but be sure to communicate with your therapist about areas that are screaming out for special attention. A tuned-in therapist will find them, so you can fall asleep if you wish to, and you will wake up with your tissues attended to.
ThaiThai massage. In Thailand, therapists sometimes walk on your back or twist you into shapes that are usually the domain of pretzels. In America, most practitioners will help your body to stretch—often using poses associated with yoga—so that muscles are energized and lengthened. Thai massage lovers rave about improved flexibility, circulation, and healing.
La Stone Therapy or HOT STONE
Inspired by centuries-old traditional Native American medicine modalities, this relative newcomer to the modern massage world has quickly caught on around the globe. There are many variants, but the basic treatment involves deep, penetrating heat that is applied with heated stones, often alternated with chilled stones. Spa aficionados swear by it and skip off the massage table feeling balanced
and relaxed. It is a full body massage that is like the Red Cross for tense muscles, aching joints, and an overwhelmed mind and spirit.
Anti-Stress Massage It’s quick and efficient, and it’s a fave of jetlagged travelers and folks who have spent too many hours in the office. It generally focuses on the neck, shoulders, and back, and it’s a balm for sore, achy, and tight muscles.
a darling of the New Age, Reiki is actually an ancient method for channeling energy. The practitioner’s hands are placed on the body in special patterns, allowing blocked channels to open up and vital, universal energy to flow through. This is a non-invasive, gentle treatment that emphasizes touch rather than penetration. It is a spiritual treatment, and doesn’t involve traditional massage strokes. It is geared toward relieving pain, reducing stress
, and aiding the healing process for physical and emotional injuries and difficulties. Reiki means “universal life force,” and it can be likened, in the Western world, to “laying on of hands.” Evolve Spa has we Reiki practitioners and one Reiki Master on staff to provide the most relaxing body work available.
Craniosacral . Craniosacral treatments work gently on the soft connective tissue that surrounds the central nervous system, bringing relief as it increases the circulation of fluids and improves the availability of nutrients. It uses your body’s own healing mechanisms to reduce the deleterious effects of stress on your central nervous system. Expect a series of feather-light yet powerful holds along the spinal column and head.
Polarity very similiar to Reiki and Craniosacral, polarity therapy targets blockages to the natural flow of energy. It is aimed at achieving balance and harmony, and the therapist applies pressure that ranges from soft to deep; again, you call the shots.. this is often times added into the massage in the beginning or the end of the treatment session.
Reflexology Its underlying philosophy is that all things are connected, especially the hands and feet to the organs and structural areas of the body. By working the reflex points in the members, the entire system reaps the benefits. It revitalizes and relaxes the whole body, while concentrating on areas that need special attention. The treatment is said to emanate from Pharaonic Egypt, and we know what magicians those ancient Egyptians were!
evolved from the practices of Kahunas (shamans) in Hawaii. It treats the body we walk around in, as well as the spirit that nourishes us. The therapist does breath work to align herself and prepare for healing. Then you are coated in oil and massaged with long, repetitive strokes as the therapist works in dance-like fashion, performing circular and figure-eight-like movements. The analogy to dance is not gratuitous, as Lomi-Lomi is based on the sacred Hawaiian hula. It is not deep like a sports massage, and in gentleness of touch is more akin to Swedish.
Aromatherapy As the practitioner uses essential and fragrant oils of plants, flowers, and herbs, the body rejuvenates and is restored to harmony and balance. Many travelers chose this therapy to overcome jetlag and acclimate to high altitudes.
Neuromuscular is not recommended as a first-time treatment and is a deep, powerful, penetrating massage that relieves both acute and chronic pain caused by over-worked muscles and injury. If you enjoy Swedish massage, this is not the service you should ask for.
Shiatsu The Japanese developed this treatment, which calls on the therapist to apply thumbs, palms, and elbows to the body’s meridian and pressure points (also called acupoints). Once stimulated, these points activate the body to come into a state of energized balance and allow energy to flow through the entire system. The treatment is customarily done with your clothes on.
Lymphatic there’s life, there’s lymph—and this lymphatic drainage helps to activate the body’s natural immune system by eliminating toxins.
A general note about massage treatments: In music, art, teaching, or most other professions, an excellent practitioner brings his or her own skills and adaptations to the work.
The same is true of massage therapists. Many of the inspired ones bring their own flair to the massage table, so you may find variations that will surprise and delight you. Evolve Spa has 8 massage therapist on staff that bring the creativity of massage to new levels. Come see for yourself the Evolve Spa difference and why it has been called the BEST MASSAGE IN HARBOR COUNTRY. Please call 269-469-5486 (LIVE) for a convenient appointment.
Just when you thought a Evolve SPA facial couldn't be any more luxurious, spas have come up with a gold-leaf process which recreates the golden mask of Cleopatra except it is designed for today’s woman. The nano gold particles in our masks are only 1/2000 the size of our pores and penetrate easily into the dermis. Their cell vitalizing function is strong and helps facilitate cell metabolism and collagen production, fight free-radicals, and restore the skin to a revitalized, hydrated and youthful appearance.
Throughout history, gold has been recognized for its luxurious and beautifying properties. Historians have long maintained that Cleopatra used pure gold as a tool to maintain youthful skin by reportedly sleeping in a gold mask every night. In ancient Rome, gold salves were used for the treatment of a variety of skin problems. In ancient Chinese medicine gold was a key to youth, as the queen of the Ch’ing dynasty used a gold massage roller on her face every day. These gold facials are also being touted as being based on the ancient Indian healing art of Ayurveda and are said to firm the skin, give it a glow and reduce wrinkles.
Gold-based facial spa treatments may be found in California, Georgia, Texas, New York, and New Jersey with prices starting at $175 for a sixty minute treatment. At Evolve SPA a GOLD facial mask can be added to any facial for $60.
The benefits of gold reportedly include:
- Gold slows down collagen depletion and the breakdown of elastin to prevent sagging skin. It stimulates cellular growth of the basal layer to regenerate healthy, firm skin cells and provide a tightening effect.
- Reduces the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles.
- Reduces the Appearance of Sun Damage and Age Spots: Since 1929 Gold has been successfully used to treat rheumatoid arthritis by reducing inflammation. Gold's anti-inflammatory properties also decrease skin inflammation, thereby slowing down melanin secretion and reducing age spots.
- Gold fights off damaging free radicals to help prevent premature aging of the skin.
- PLEASE CALL in advance to schedule the 24k golden collagen crystal Cleopatra MASK that is suitable for all skin types especially for aging and mature skin. 269-469-5483 (LIVE)
