Like pick-up games of basketball and all-night accounting sessions with your tax lawyer, massages offer a relaxing reprieve from daily stresses and sometimes end in a high-five. Forget your worries with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a 90-minute massage, plus access to the sauna and tea room, (a $125 value) at Root Whole Body.
Root Whole Body's holistic wellness therapies focus on blissing out one's whole being in a relaxing and earthy setting. Upon arrival, sip on a complimentary beverage before unwinding during a 90-minute therapeutic massage that will decrease muscle stress, while improving flexibility and body circulation. After your treatment, you'll be free to sweat out any remaining toxins, such as stress, poison-dart poison, and Diet Dr. Pepper, in Root's serene sauna.
- I received a massage both times from Nealy and it is hands down the best massage I've received. She is great at reading your muscles and working with them to release tension. I cannot recommend her enough. Also, the fact that they have a sauna just makes the whole experience that much better. – Vilya57, Citysearch
- It was a beautiful, cohesive, and revitalizing experience overall. – Claire W., Yelp
Root Whole Body
Instead of letting fear take root as her body became entangled with cancer, Pat Johnson commissioned the team of healers and practitioners she met along her recovery journey to breathe life into a holistic spa and wellness center where she hopes "to help people find the best within themselves." To that end, naturopathic physician Dr. Vida Talebi dispenses advice on overcoming fatigue, hormonal imbalances, and obesity, and chiropractor Dr. Stefan Herold addresses the chronic pain that results from giving piggyback rides to lazy shadows. Since wellness isn't just about avoiding physical pain, the center also holds daily yoga classes that foster inner peace. Natural therapies dominate the center's spa treatments, which include facials that extract epidermal soil with handmade Éminence organic skincare products, crafted from fresh herbs and fruits.
