Body & Soul Retreat's professional pamperers whisk couples to bodily bliss with aromatherapy massages, private suites, and succulent snacks during private massages or lessons. The 60-minute couples massage lavishes lovebirds, friends, or goldfish and their devoted owners with glasses of champagne and a platter brimming with chocolates, strawberries, cheese, and fruit. An aromatherapy massage transports minds and bodies to olfactory nirvana while massage therapists free the body from corporeal pain and romance-inhibiting suits of armor. Throughout the luxurious getaway, duos can unwind while listening to soft music in a private suite.
During the 60-minute massage lesson, a muscle-mending expert imparts massage knowledge to couples as they massage each other with organic oils in private accommodations. This deal also includes a champagne toast and platter of indulgent snacks to nibble on. As soothing music populates the soundscape, couples learn massage techniques that they can use to treat each other at home or get out of speeding tickets.
Body & Soul Retreat
More than a spa, Body & Soul Retreat strikes down malady at its stressy source, setting its sights on systematically improving the immune system through specific body therapies. For instance, lymphatic massage purges toxins from the body alongside a heaping helping of pampering during Ayervedic healing sessions that enlist oils, herbal powers, and deep strokes that stimulate blood circulation. A duo of massage therapists tandem-attack aches and pains during the Four Hands Escape treatment, chasing down splinter cells of knots and the moles that so often evade therapists armed with novelty mallets. Couples looking to cure their ailments can inquiry about tandem-savvy packages that include massages and a jacuzzi designed with pairs in mind.
Beyond their impressive bodywork skills, which also include cranio-sacral, reflexology, and neuromuscular techniques, Body & Soul’s practitioners also tend to rough, cracked skin with sugar scrubs or salt glows laced with lavender, citrus, or peppermint, and groom fingers and toes during aromatherapy manicures and pedicures. For communal unwinding, guests can rustle up a cadre of friends for one of Body & Soul’s spa parties.
Along with massages, spa parties, and mani-pedis, the "soul mates" at Body and Soul Retreat also perform a variety of facial services, including organic skin care, back facials, peels, and full service waxing. Now in their 20th year of business, they have also recently added acupuncture and Chinese medicine to their list of services.
