Hilton Head Health’s philosophy is simple: Love your body. This award-winning, weight loss resort has been helping people get fit since opening in 1976 and recently added Indigo Spa—a boutique luxury facility that is available to both guests and the public.
According to Hilton Head Health CMO Carol Stratford, “The color indigo symbolizes deep compassion—a state of serenity and inner peace. The Indigo Spa’s services, product ingredients, and even the interior spaces have all been designed to help you turn inward on your path to wellness. It’s all about becoming a healthier you, from the inside out.”
Stratford continued, “Our CEO, Michael Tompkins (who recently retired as the CEO of the renown Miraval Resort in Arizona), was very careful about selecting the Spa’s employees and has brought in the top leaders in the industry to train them.”
Nodding, Hilton Head Health Brand Manager Adam Martin added, “We really wanted to create an unparalleled spa experience on Hilton Head. At other spas, you go into a room and once your service is over rush out. At Indigo Spa, we provide a quiet room to get you in the zone and calming comprehensive services that are like mini vacations.”
Martin also pointed out that a new popular trend in the spa industry is catering to men and that Indigo Spa offers several men’s services like the tobacco and coffee scrub. Read more about this and other of Indigo Spa’s signature treatments below:
Indigo Spa’s Signature Services
Tobacco & Coffee Scrub
Inspired by plants and muds from South Carolina, the aromatic coffee and black silt body scrub prepares devitalized skin for the purifying effects of Indian sarsaparilla and the age-defying benefits of wild tobacco.
Men’s Age-Defying Express Resurfacing Treatment
An anti-aging treatment for men that lifts, tightens and smoothes away lines. This treatment dissolves dead skin cells on the surface and unclogs pores to eliminate bacteria and calm irritations caused by razor burn or ingrown hairs.
Fit & Firm Transformational Facial (my personal favorite)
This European-inspired facial incorporates a sugar cane AHA resurfacing and an individually chosen treatment mask to soften fine lines, clear congestion and brighten the skin.
Indigo Sun Massage
This massage, with invigorating brisk strokes to increase circulation, uses oils to draw impurities from your body and cardamom, black pepper and amber to warm your muscles.
Indigo Moon Massage
French lavender, one of nature’s most potent and pure fragrances, rosemary and peperina oils are used for this relaxing aromatherapy massage.

Consult with your Hilton Head Experience Planner and pair treatments designed to work in concert with each other using Red Flower, Naturopathica and Skin Authority products to create a customized, multi-tiered process to restoring your mind and body.
