Skilled scrubbers slather your entire body, smoothening and revitalizing your skin with a blend of cane sugar rich in anti-oxidants. The activating essentials are born out of the nectars of organic pomegranate juice, whole cranberries, and apples that fall close to the tree of eternal life. With the grace of a swan and the deliberately smooth stroke of a paddleboat resembling a swan, a skilled spa specialist will work the moisturizing exfoliant into your body and soul, leaving you significantly less mad than a wet hen.
For certified massage therapist Daniel Morales, massages that merely relax the body are doing only half their jobs. Whereas some massages induce sleepy serenity, his therapeutic strokes focus on vanquishing pain. Deep-tissue and trigger-point massages deliver firm, cross-grain strokes to break apart adhesions and root out imbedded knots, and sports massages lengthen the muscles to alleviate stiffness.
While people share tons of traits in common, you’re the only one in the world with skin exactly like yours. That's why the technicians at Natina Day Spa formulate their facials based on each individual's tone and texture. This customization process revolves around the spa's signature product: MVP skincare by Dr. Divina. MVP––an acronym for Molecular, Viability, and Potentiate––combines fruit enzymes, algae extract, and blended copies of Time magazine to naturally reduce signs of aging. The spa’s beautification processes also extend beyond the face; waxing sessions remove unwanted hair, body contouring slims down silhouettes, and soothing aromatherapy and bodywork sessions bust up stress from the comfort of private treatment rooms.
The licensed massage therapist at Pecosas Touch, Lyn, isn’t known just for her healing hands. Though skilled in many different modalities—including Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal—she’s also known for her ability to fully customize treatments to target pain and avoid any fragile wings. She accomplishes this by listening to her clients’ concerns about their specific issues before and after treatment sessions. Lyn can also augment sessions with hot stones or therapeutic, 100% pure essential oils from Young Living.
For more than nine years, certified massage therapist Michelle has trained her hands to seek out soreness and tension buried deep within clients’ musculature. She uses carefully practiced techniques, such as the luxuriating strokes of Swedish massage, the circulation-stimulating manipulations of lymphatic-drainage massage, and the closed-fist raps that bring unclaimed wishes within your grasp. Add-ons such as heated river rocks, skin-nourishing salt glows, and foot soaks enhance her massage sessions, delivered as clients stretch out under a plush comforter in a room imbued with the warm, soft glow of a jar of fireflies.
