SPA - New Chilean Adventure Spa Hotel Emphasizes Local Elements
Chile (Jan. 22, 2008) - The new Tierra
Atacama Hotel & Spa just opened in San Pedro de Atacama, a desert oasis
in the dramatic Chilean Altiplano. Tierra Atacama sits at the gateway to the Atacama
Desert, one of the highest and driest places on earth with surreal sandscapes,
salt valleys, lush river basins, and massive volcanoes. After enjoying a day of
adventure in the dry desert heat, guests will find a highlight to be returning
to the rejuvenating Uma Spa.
Uma is the Aymara word for water. Water is a source
of life, of revitalization. The Uma Spa at Tierra Atacama is designed to induce
a calm and relaxing feeling through sensual aromas, colors and textures. Local
elements will be incorporated into the spa treatments including desert herbs,
desert sand, salt from the lithium rich salt flats, volcanic stones and volcanic
mud from high in the mountains. You are greeted with towels, robes and sandals
when entering Uma Spa. Uma includes four treatment cabins and water therapy circuits
that have been developed using the different waters of the spa (hot and cold pools,
Finnish and Turkish saunas, Jacuzzi, steam rooms). The Uma Spa is open to all
guests over 16 from 11am to 9pm with appointments.

You can clean your home, fruits, vegetables and meats with the same 'Aqueous Ozone' that spas and other companies use. Tersano's ‘Aqueous Ozone’ Cleaning Systemt is the world's most effective chemical-free cleaner. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ quickly oxidizes (kills) viruses and bacteria (including E.coli, Salmonella, MRSA, C-Difficil), mold, mildew and other contaminants on any item or surface - from toilets to bedspreads - before changing safely back into water and oxygen. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ is 3000 times faster and 50% more powerful than bleach and chlorine-based cleaners. It is 100% chemical free - no toxins, carcinogens or chemical residue - and safe for babies, pets and people with sensitive skin or those with strong reactions to normal cleaners. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ has long been used in water treatment, food sterilization and medical therapies for its remarkable anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. It sounds too good to be true, but the data show how effective the system works.
