Fern Tree Spa embraces the century old traditions from Jamaica by using ‘bush’ remedies to heal and nurture the body.

Traditionally, healing medicines using local indigenous ingredients such as fruits, herbs, flowers, bark and roots have been used, and at Fern Tree Spa they continue this wonderful tradition.

Fern Tree Spa employs a Spa Elder who is a natural extension of this healing tradition and this has become the foundation for the spa therapies and philosophy at Fern Tree Spa.

The Spa Elder has created healing rituals, natural products and recipes to improve health and well being, and deliver rejuvenating results.

She took her time to relax ever part of my body and the pressure was just right and her hands are perfect for the job she does.
