Tox Shop

Yep, you totally OD’d at Easter this year. Before any well-intentioned friend stages an intervention, you need to get yourself into detox, or you’ll need a shoehorn to wedge yourself into that spring bikini.

You need help, no matter what the cost. If you're willing to pony up, you can get the deluxe detox experience -- Pure Renewal at SpaHalekulani. It’s three and a half hours of treatments, plus lunch and a snack. It may drain your designer handbag budget, but it’s bound to be easier than following 12 steps.

Your day starts with a foot pounding, to stimulate circulation, followed by 80 blissful minutes of foot reflexology and a full body massage.

Next you’ll get a pineapple-mint-ginger smoothie break before starting a full-body skin brushing, meant to stimulate the lymphatic system and exfoliate the skin. Then, it’s a wrap. Literally. The espresso limon body wrap to detoxify and firm your skin. Best of all, it reduces cellulite.

All this relaxing and you need a break. So, you’ll take a breather and have a heart-healthy, local salad on the terrace; Hirabara greens, avocado, orange, flaxseed and blueberry with pomegranate olive oil. Finally, you get a nice foot soak, meant to cleanse the toxins through the feet before they release you back into the world.

And if all this heart-healthy detox isn’t for you, permanently, don’t worry. The Lewers Lounge is right there for you to undertake some serious re-toxification of the liquid kind.

SpaHalekulani, Halekulani Hotel, 2199 Kalia Road, Waikiki. $607.42, includes lunch, gratuity and parking. To book an appointment, call 808.931.5322 or 808.931.5323.
