Filling three stories and more than 30,000 square feet, Spa Toscana is a vacation destination all its own. Located inside the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno, this spacious spa offers a well-rounded menu of soothing services, along with access to a gorgeous caldarium, steam rooms, saunas and more. Take time this fall for a trip to Spa Toscana, and allow this healing sanctuary to recharge your batteries before the hectic holiday season.

“There is something to be said for enjoying our luxurious spa in the cooler months — we  have the eucalyptus steam rooms, cedar wood saunas, whirlpools and an indoor pool,” said Angela Taverner, director of Spa Toscana. “It’s indulging and restorative to have a spa service and then enjoy our extra features. You can wash away the summer madness and relax before the holiday season.”

No matter which services you choose to book, all 24 treatment rooms at Spa Toscana are equipped with top-of-the-line products and tools for the optimal healing experience. The specific options span the spectrum from massage therapy and body scrubs to body wraps and aromatherapy, along with a host of face treatments.

Facials, massages

According to Taverner, the Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial is one of the most popular services at Spa Toscana, as it leaves the skin plump and glowing — perfect in preparation for a special event. As for body treatments, the spa director suggests the Aromatherapy Massage for the ultimate sense of soothing.

“Specific essential oils are massaged down the spine in a very specific order. This is so the oils can be absorbed through the spinal area for deeper relaxation,” Taverner said. “This process takes about 30 minutes of the service, and then the balance of the time is given to performing a massage. Personally, I am more relaxed afterward with this service than I am with any other — I really feel the tension ease away.”

Autumn specials

For fall, Peppermill guests also can select from seasonal specials that include a pumpkin spice facial, Plum Spice hot stone massage, plum spice sugar scrub and massage, plum spice or pumpkin spice pedicure or a eucalyptus massage. Consider one of the wellness treatments available at Spa Toscana, such as the Radiance Shirodhara.

“The Shirodhara is an ancient therapy used for centuries to restore inner calm and balance to the emotions. Ours begins with a thin, gentle stream of warm herbal oil to the center of the forehead to quiet the mind and soothe the senses,” Taverner said. “This nourishing oil is then massaged into the hair and scalp, and specific herb-infused oils are used to perform Marma Points massage on the face, hands and feet to stimulate the organs of the body.”

Along with the world-class wellness treatments that can be booked at Spa Toscana, spa guests can also enjoy several features of the facility before, in between or after treatments such as the steam rooms and saunas, Northern Nevada’s only caldarium, complete with an indoor pool, hot and cool whirlpools, sun deck and secret garden. Salon Toscana offers an entire menu of salon services from hand and foot therapies to makeup application, waxing to hair services. A relaxing oasis awaits you at Spa Toscana.
