Spa treatments at The Cliff House Resort & Spa in Ogunquit Maine are inspired by its location atop Bald Head Cliff overlooking the Atalntic Ocean. Seahshell and stone massage, blueberry facial masks are signature treatments. Thirty foot diameter granite walking path labyrinth and vanishing pool are components of the state-of-the-art spa.

Our therapies incorporate indigenous rocks and plants for healing, relaxing, balancing and energizing. The Cliff House Resort & Spa has not only a one-of-a-kind location but one-of-a-kind spa treatments.

Maine’s Cliff House Resort & Spa atop Bald Head Cliff in Ogunquit offers spa treatments inspired by its location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

New for the 2006 season is the SeaShell Therapy, a three-part body treatment to improve circulation and lymphatic function. The therapy begins with a natural bristle, dry brush exfoliation followed by an application of seaweed and mud to reach deeper into the skin. A massage of warmed cone, scallop and fan shaped seashells follows. The seashell massage is based on an ancient Hawaiian therapy. A choice of rosemary, citrus or lavender oils accompanies the massage. The final part of the therapy is a full body hydration with Shea Butter, a natural derivative of the West African Karite tree mixed with a blend of herbal extracts.

Other treatments inspired by the resort’s location include a stone massage with basalt stones gathered from the millennia-old Bald Head Cliff, a body buff with salts from the Dead Sea, and a facial with a mask made of wild, organic Maine blueberries.

On the spa terrace overlooking Bald Head Cliff is a 30 foot diameter labyrinth made from Maine granite. This walking path is based on ancient mysticism and metaphysics associated with spiritual quests and the meaning of life. Buried beneath the center of the Labyrinth is a 2000 millennium capsule.

Says Spa Director, Julie Morse-Patuleia, “ Our therapies incorporate indigenous rocks and plants for healing, relaxing, balancing and energizing. The Cliff House Resort & Spa has not only a one-of-a-kind location but one-of-a-kind spa treatments.”

The Cliff House Resort & Spa is the oldest, family owned and operated resort on the East Coast. The 2006 season will mark the 134th year of operation. In 2002, The Cliff House opened New England’s first oceanfront spa. The spa facilities are handicapped accessible and feature a vanishing pool trailing off into the Atlantic, a fitness mezzanine with state-of-the-art exercise equipment, a 75-foot lap pool and 36 guest rooms with ocean views.
