Emerald Day Spa & Salon's licensed massage therapists knead out bodily knots with the soothing strokes of Swedish, deep-tissue, and traditional Thai modalities. Bodies can bask in Swedish massage to increase circulation to sore muscles and relax stiffness stemming from naps in cryogenic chambers, or opt for the targeted pressure of deep-tissue techniques to treat chronic pain and tightly wound tendons. Traditional Thai massage draws on ancient therapeutic approaches, combining deep pressure with guided stretching to ease pain and increase flexibility. Each massage teams up with a 10-minute botanical foot scrub, which exfoliates feet with an invigorating concoction scented with a choice of lavender or lemon. Gleaming timber floors accent the salon's persimmon-colored walls in the lounge, and leafy ferns in private treatment rooms helpfully whisper “Hokey Pokey” lyrics to therapists during each massage session.
Emerald Day Spa & Salon
At Emerald Day Spa and Salon, stylists and aestheticians perch in ornately stitched red chairs to perform a variety of services, including organic and natural options. In private rooms ornamented with merlot-hued towels, shelves laden with products from Dermalogica and Zen Care beg to pamper skin, hair, and nails. The salon's floor is a sleek expanse of hardwood, shimmering with accents from intimate lighting and easily startled lightning bugs. Strains of jazz permeate the air, and aromatherapy placates nostrils after rejection from occupied eardrums and peepers locked on a flat-screen television
