Spa of Awakening: When Only Perfection Will Do

Mar 31, 2024 06:30AM ● By Linda Sechrist

In the realm of wellness and rejuvenation, the convergence of expertise, passion and a shared vision has birthed the Spa of Awakening, in Naples, where Mauro Sacraida and Melissa Jacobs, with a combined experience of 48 years, have forged an alliance dedicated to excellence and transforming the conventional spa experience into a unique journey of self-discovery and revitalization.

“When we embarked on this partnership, our aspiration was clear: to offer unparalleled, five-star service, transcending the ordinary and crafting a sanctuary where our patrons could embark on transformative journeys toward enhanced health and enriched lives,” shares Jacobs.

For Sacraida, the genesis of this venture stemmed from a desire to create a space to bring knowledge and expertise to clients and to exceed expectations. “The idea had been percolating for some time, awaiting the perfect synergy,” he recalls, adding that meeting Jacobs, a kindred spirit, proved to be the catalyst he had been awaiting.

Naming the spa, a pivotal moment in their journey, represented the synchronicity of their aspirations. Jacobs’ proposal elicited an immediate resonance, an affirmation of their shared purpose. Sacraida reflects, “It was as though the name encapsulated our entire philosophy—a testament to the global awakening unfolding around us.”

The emblem of Spa of Awakening—a lotus, suggestive of emergence, reaching for the heavens—epitomizes the philosophy of Sacraida and Jacobs. “It symbolizes the journey toward self-awareness, an embrace of the universe within and without,” says Jacobs.

Striving to provide a service like no other in an ideal location, every detail mattered in their pursuit of perfection. “We weren’t merely seeking a space; we were seeking an embodiment of our vision—a flagship sanctuary where compromise found no harbor,” Sacraida explains. 

The due believes in the power of touch, where massages are not just treatments; they are the gateway to a healthier and more vibrant life. In addition to a signature massage which draws on global healing traditions, Spa of Awakening offers craniosacral therapy, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, neurolymphatic drainage, neuromuscular therapy, sports massage, prenatal massage, reflexology, trigger point therapy and Swedish and therapeutic massages. It also provides a state-of-the-art, full-spectrum infrared sauna and ionic foot detox to promote wellness and rejuvenation.

Their wide array of facial treatments includes the Algomask, hydolifting, oxygenating and botinol facials, as well as collagen treatments, clinical peels, dermaplaning, microdermabrasion and radio-frequency treatments—all of which incorporate G.M. Collin skincare products with advanced peptides and enhancing collagen to ensure the skin’s perfect health and radiance for a youthful glow.
