Infused with aromatic oils, the 45-minute tech-neck massage relieves computer-related tension in the neck, back, shoulders, and head. The 75-minute anti-aging facial cleanses pores with antioxidant-rich ingredients. Microdermabrasions, on the other hand, use super-fine diamonds to exoliate faces, reducing fine lines and other signs of aging. Finally the 60-minute hand-and-foot treatment massages, exfoliates, and warms up fingers and toes. Anthea Spa requests that clients arrive 15 minutes prior to their appointment time.
A bicycle leans against the wall in the Anthea Spa lobby, its basket filled with flowers. This touch of decor might seem out of place, but it's actually a nod to the spa's name—anthea translates to "flower" in Greek—and to its penchant for all-natural products. These products find their way into nine varieties of facials, which rely on enzymes and aromatherapy or employ European exfoliation techniques and high-frequency currents. The aestheticians also draw on herbs, healing muds, and oils to refresh skin and relax muscles during massages and body treatments. Anthea Spa also treats fingers and toes to classic and Shellac mani-pedis; the latter protects nails from chips and sock puppets prone to nervous biting.
