Our favourite Day Spa Hervey Bay Treatments
This is definitely a treatment for the coffee aficionados out there. Imagine the delicious aroma of freshly roasted ground coffee, combined with a luscious body scrub treatment. Not only does this full-body exfoliation smell heavenly, your skin will emerge smooth as silk and fully rejuvenated. Why not incorporate the body scrub into a divine 2 hour coffee package, complete with an indulgent full body massage with warmed coffee oil, a relaxing foot reflexology massage, a nourishing coffee face mask, and a stress-busting Indian head massage?
- Body wrap
This treatment begins with dry body brushing with a wooden brush, followed by full body exfoliation. This is excellent for removing debris and dead skin cells from the body, and a warm steam towel provides a very relaxing sensation and increases blood circulation throughout the body. Your body is then wrapped with a clay masque containing seaweed and white tea antioxidants, perfect for drawing out the impurities from the body and adding antioxidants to skin cells.
The wrap is removed with a steamed towel and is followed by body hydrating cream, which helps to smooth and relieve skin dryness. You will emerge feeling refreshed and utterly rejuvenated.
- Far-infrared sauna
Infrared saunas, sometimes known as far-infrared saunas, are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue, which in turn produces a host of anti-ageing health benefits, including: weight control through increasing metabolic rate; detoxification; skin purification and improving elasticity; pain relief; and lowering blood pressure. If you want to get yourself back into balance, an infrared sauna may be the ticket to achieving your wellness goals.
Pre wedding pampering is essential for everyone, not just the bride and groom, so you can all look and feel relaxed.

Reiki is an ancient “hands on healing” that brings the body and mind into harmony. This Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Reiki is a simple and natural method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use, and works in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to promote recovery.
Discover the power of gentle touch.
Our feet go through a lot of stress every day. Standing, running, walking, jumping – our feet do it all. Practitioners of foot massage believe that overall health begins in your feet, and can offer multiple physical and psychological benefits. Foot massage can promote health and wellbeing, and is a valuable part of complementary and alternative medicine.
At Ripple, a foot reflexology massage is included in all our lush massage packages. A foot treatment begins with a peppermint and lime scented foot bath. Then, the feet are dried off and massaged in gentle but firm strokes, beginning from the tips of your toes to the heels. Using thumb pressure to deeply massage and manipulate each of the reflex points in the feet, our skilled reflexologists can stimulate the corresponding organs and glands, thereby correcting imbalances and relieving aches and pains.
- Hydrotherapy spa treatment
In this therapeutic total body wellness experience, the very latest in water therapy technology is used in a hydrotherapy spa to deliver total relaxation and rejuvenation. Whether you’re juggling work and family, recovering from a joint or muscle injury, or simply needing to unwind from the day’s stresses, spa hydrotherapy can help ease your tension.
The heat from the warm water improves circulation and speeds recovery in damaged tissue; the buoyancy achieved in the spa reduces effects of pressure on joints and spine; while the massage relieves muscle tension and alleviates stress.
Allow yourself to drift away as your hydrotherapist soothingly massages your scalp and neck while gentle mist and steam combine with essential oils to cleanse your pores, leaving your entire body feeling refreshed and recharged. A hydrotherapy session can be combined with other spa treatments such as full body exfoliation treatments, facials, or full body massage.
- Lymphatic drainage
The lymphatic system is our front line of defence in fighting bodily infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body. A healthy lymphatic system is crucial in promoting overall wellness. Lymphatic drainage is a gentle treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids the body’s immune system. It is highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, chronic fatigue, excess fluids, low immunity, and the physically inactive.
Whether you’re here for a weekend getaway with your partner, going whale-watching with the kids, or preparing for a wedding, there is something in Hervey Bay for everyone. Lie back on the sand, inhale that salty sea air, indulge in a bit of pampering, and most importantly, relax!
