The wellness and beauty rituals are performed professionally and slowly. The Detox, Revitalising and Relaxation programmes last two hours and use salt and aromatic vinegar, cane sugar and orange blossom honey, oils and floral and plant extracts.

The acupressure, effleurage and manual massages combine with the relaxing fragrances to increase the effectiveness and pleasure. All of the Santa Maria Novella products used in the treatments are available for purchase at the centre. Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella was founded 400 years ago as a laboratory of Dominican monks who used the medicinal herbs they cultivated in their own gardens to prepare medications, unguents and ointments for use in the monastery’s small infirmary. The monks then began selling their care products and perfumes based on citrus and floral essences to the public. After four centuries, Officina di Santa Maria Novella has become a true cosmetic industry, but has retained its artisanal soul. At LPV Health & Beauty, all treatments are performed by our staff who have received training in the methods used by Officina di Santa Maria Novella. The body and facial treatments, detox, relaxation, anti-age and rebalancing treatments use strictly natural thermal clays, aromatic herbs and floral and plant essences. They are all done entirely by hand, without the use of any machines.
