5ENSES Immersion Retreat - Kingfisher Hydropath Spa Experience

As part of your 5ENSES Retreat to Vancouver Island in June 2018, we are excited to introduce you to the Hydropath experience that is included in your weekend package...
Relax, Rebalance & Rejuvenate at the Pacific Mist Spa and Hydropath®
Welcome to the Pacific Mist Spa located at the Kingfisher Resort. Our spa therapies and signature services focus on the rich ingredients of the sea and reflect our unique west coast surroundings. Truly unique to the Kingfisher, the Pacific Mist Hydropath® offers the benefits of hydrotherapy including remineralization, detoxification, relaxation and more, in a setting that evokes Vancouver Island’s natural seaside elements. On your own, with friends or someone special, follow the path as it winds through a re-created West Coast shoreline featuring sandstone sculpted caves and pools. Your attendant will guide you through the eight unique elements of the Pacific Mist Hydropath®.


Swiss shower jets carved into the sandstone send water pulsating from all angles, rinsing and warming the body.

Proceed around the pool where jets progress from the lumbar region of the back up to the shoulders, gently relaxing tense muscles.

Relax in the single person baths carved out of rock with wild hand harvested West Coast seaweeds. Benefits include drawing toxins out of the body and adding vital minerals and trace elements. Your skin will feel refreshed and nourished.

Sit amongst a series of waterfalls to experience streaming water from above of various volumes and intensities. This water element is designed to relax stressed muscles in the head, neck and shoulders.

With jetted sections of both warm and cold water, the river walk produces the Kneipp* Effect for the legs, a traditional therapy that stimulates blood circulation. Legs feel lighter and rejuvenated.

Inhale aromatic steam, soothing to the lungs and encouraging the release of toxins from the body.

Allow the glacial waterfall to invigorate your body and senses.

The sea mineral pool is the perfect spot for a relaxing float, while 104 trace elements and minerals are absorbed by the body. Complete the Pacific Mist Hydropath® with a 10–15 minute rest in the lounge taking in the serene views of the Pacific Ocean and nearby Gulf Islands.

*Kneipp Effect: With brief applications of cold water (one second to one minute), temperature stimuli are conveyed via the skin which trigger positive reactions in the body: The temporary narrowing of the blood vessels with subsequent vascular expansion promotes circulation throughout the body. This strengthens immune defenses, stimulates the circulatory and nervous system as well as metabolism and invigorates the body. — www.kneipp.com/us_en/natures-expert/water-cure/hydrotherapy
