Therapists gently knead clients' muscles with essential oils and heated basalt stones during the koko hot-stone massage. They also soothe skin with a custom-tailored version of one of six standard facials—such as an anti-oxidant facial with a blend of lavender and green tea, an oil-balancing facial, and an anti-aging facial mask crafted from vegetables.
The owners of Spa Bavu take their business' name from a Swahili word meaning "inner strength and power". This idea permeates the atmosphere of their small, private spa, where African décor mingles with internationally inspired treatments. Therapists combat aches with six massage modalities, using the long, gliding strokes of the Swedish technique or the heated basalt rocks that ply muscles during hot-stone massages. To exfoliate skin and melt tension, they perform body treatments— aromatic steam baths, Israeli mineral mud and warm French seaweed wraps, and chocolate-infused scrubs. They also help clients ease off stuck Halloween masks with six facials using lavender and green tea blends and oil-balancing formulas.
