Converted from the 19th-century building of its namesake, Carriage House Day Spa offers relief from bodily bothers amid an ambience that blends modern luxury with old-world charm. Clients are greeted by light wood tones and tasteful art adorning the faded stucco of an antique brick façade. Within these historic walls, time-tested muscles are similarly renovated with the long, light strokes of a Swedish massage. After their hour-long knead-a-thon, clients will leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and pleasantly baffled by the barouche and livery-clad coachman awaiting them at the door.
The professional aestheticians at more than Beautiful's full-service salon and spa team with Dermalogica products to treat skull coverings to custom visage pampering. The one-hour facial includes a personalized skin consultation, also known as face mapping, during which epidermal educators analyze the entire facial landscape to match spa treatments and at-home remedies with the client's concerns, be they aging skin, acne, or kaleidoscope-inspired constantly changing facial features. Each subsequent step after cleansing is then customized accordingly, and includes exfoliation, massage, a mask, and toning, followed by one of Dermalogica's special boosters. Finally, aestheticians hydrate and protect the skin by applying the appropriate moisturizer followed by an eye cream, sunscreen, and protective hockey mask.
Sister duo Michelle and Marie draw on Swedish, deep tissue, and pressure point principles and techniques to tailor each treatment to your body's singular quirks and complaints. During the integrated massage, the mitten fillers of your licensed massage therapist will skate smooth circles and figure eights on the surface of your back, boosting circulation, oxygenating muscles, and promoting peacefulness. If your body is already nice and rubbery from hours of boiling in a spaghetti pot, you can de-stress just as completely with a mani/pedi as technicians clip, cut, and file untamed talons into clean and orderly perfection before coating them with your color of choice. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
