Silver Star Mountain Resort, BC — After an exhilarating day skiing or snowboarding at Silver Star Mountain Resort, what could be more relaxing or rejuvenating than a pampering spa treatment? This winter, Silver Star is pleased to announce that Beyond Wrapture Mind and Body Care is opening a new day spa and retreat in the National Altitude Training Centre. The National Altitude Training Centre is Silver Star’s world-class training facility, used by some of Canada’s top Olympic athletes. The opening of this highly-regarded spa will greatly enhance the quality of the guest experience at Silver Star.

Kelowna-based Beyond Wrapture is owned and operated by Debra Pender, a woman with a passion for the healing arts. Her first spa opened in 1994 in the Character House on Richter Street , which was Kelowna ’s first full-service spa facility. Other Valley locations soon followed, most notably at the four-star Manteo Resort, the Coast Capri Hotel, and the Chateau Big White. Cited in numerous readers’ polls as the Okanagan’s favourite spa destination, Beyond Wrapture’s expansion to Silver Star seems only natural, given the athletic, health-conscious clientele that this internationally-recognized four season destination resort attracts.

Eight specific Simply Spa Bliss Treatments will be offered, and can be combined in an assortment of attractively-priced packages. Guests can look forward to rejuvenating treatments such as Beyond Wrapture’s Sacred Art Stone Massage, the Beyond Bliss Aroma Wrap with Shoulder, Neck, and Face Massage, or the very unique Vinotherapy Massage, which utilizes red or white wine blended into a specially-prepared massage lotion. Traditional Swedish and Deep Tissue sports massages are also available. A complete array of personalized skin care and finishing touches — including Beyond Wrapture’s famous Men’s Facials — will be offered as well. Such treatments will greatly enhance that ‘healthy glow’ that a Silver Star winter vacation is known for! Pender expects the Stone Massage will be a big favourite for weary-limbed skiers winter adventurers.

Like all of her spas, Debra’s Silver Star operation will be focused on the well-being of each Beyond Wrapture client. “We’re dedicated to the core concept that preventative health is found in relaxation. I remain committed to developing and delivering stress-relieving treatments in an atmosphere of tranquility. We want our clients to leave the spa feeling revitalized and ready to welcome the world.”
