Chocolate Spa Treatments

Chocolate Spa Treatments

It's okay if your mouth is already watering. Prepare to indulge in all the senses. The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis and Bissinger’s have partnered to create three new chocolate based treatments.

 Bissinger’s, a St. Louis chocolatier, has been crafting award-winning chocolates for more than 350 years. Their proprietary cocoa blend is crafted from beans responsibly sourced from western Africa for chocolate that’s decadently rich, smooth and velvety, providing the perfect base for luxurious treatments.

“Not only does dark chocolate taste amazing, it is also beneficial to the body; cocoa, high in antioxidants absorbs skin damaging free radicals, while the mood-lifting scent instantly relaxes the mind and body throughout the services,”  says Spa and Salon Director Erin Stewart.

"Antioxidants are thought to help fight against free-radical damage, while the high caffeine content of cocoa stimulates circulation, allowing blood to naturally rejuvenate and heal damaged skin. The natural oils found in cocoa butter also provide a deep nourishing effect to retain moisture long after a treatment has ended."

Treatments include The Decadence Ritual, Cocoa Facial and Chocolate-Dipped Manicure. For those craving an additional experience, Bissinger’s opens its doors to Four Seasons guests on Mondays through Thursdays to experience a behind-the-scenes tour of the downtown historic chocolate factory and various tastings throughout the year. Enjoy a rare look at the art and science of crafting this proprietary blend of chocolate that has been featured on Food Network, Oprah and is the winner of several sofi Awards.
