Winter can be cold, dark and gloomy. A candlelit massage, one of the hottest trends in spa treatments, can bring a little light into your life, adding a unique element to the standard massage or body treatment. Spas across the globe are now offering their own specialized versions of a candlelit massage, from the renowned Rancho La Puerta, in Tecate, MX, named #1 Destination Spa in the World to the elegant Mayflower Grace in Conneticut.
Head-to-Toe Candle Oil Massage
Using the warm, scented oil from a just-extinguished massage oil candle, the spa therapist employs a gentle form of massage that involves long strokes from scalp to toes. Hot stones and a body wrap are also incorporated into the treatment, with a strong focus on warming, revitalizing movements and strokes for an ultimate sense of relaxation; 90 min for $160.
The Spa at The Modern Honolulu Light My Fire Massage
The Modern Honolulu will light your inner fire with their warm oil candle massage. This season’s hottest massage includes the use of a massage candle that deeply penetrates and hydrates your skin. 50min | $150
The Mayflower Grace
The Mayflower Grace Spa is offering a seasonal Chai Spice and Vanilla Winter Warmer treatment from December 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014 using warm liquid wax from a massage candle.

The remainder of the candle is the guests to take and enjoy in the peace of their own room, or to share with someone special.
