These days, spa treatments are offered by so many businesses that it's difficult to know which establishments are sincere and professional, and which are simply climbing onto the bandwagon. Fortunately, Tainan residents can turn to Soul Valley Aveda, which not only uses and sells world-renowned Aveda products, but also provides an unrivalled range of spirit-lifting and body-enhancing treatments and services.

Aveda's hair, skin and body-care items are created from natural flower and plant essences, with very few synthetic ingredients, and no animal products. The aromas are therefore pleasingly organic. The company's manufacturing processes emphasize sustainability and use renewable energy.

The name Soul Valley was chosen because "a visit should refresh the soul, and give you the same uplifting feeling you get when you enter a green valley". One of Soul Valley's signature treatments features the use of stress-busting Tibetan singing bowls. You lie down in a softly lit room; a skilled practitioner places one of these alloy bowls on your abdomen, and makes it "sing" with the stroke of a padded gong. Close your eyes and feel the soothing vibrations resonate outwards...

Soul Valley is the probably the only spa in Tainan where you can truly beautify yourself from head to toe. The Aveda Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Facial is for your complexion; the Caribbean Therapy Body Treatment uses a special product that incorporates sugarcane fiber; the Aveda Purescription Scalp Massage and Special Customized Perm ensure that, from the shoulders up, you look and feel your absolute best.
Other services include manicures and pedicures, nail art, hair coloring and styling, and jetlag replenishment therapy. There are yoga, pilates, belly-dancing, and meditation classes. On Wednesdays, there are bilingual storytelling sessions for children; mom can immerse herself in the spa, while her kids enjoy themselves and learn something at the same time.

Drop by and the staff will happily advise you on the selection and use of Aveda products. For spa prices and details of current promotions, please telephone or visit the website.
