Choose a 60-minute Swedish/deep-tissue massage, a 60-minute hot-stone massage, or a 90-minute Thai yoga massage.Naturally, world powers began jockeying for access to the potentially weaponize-able massage, by means both diplomatic and unofficial. Many international observers believe that the 1992 Summer Olympics were, in fact, a complicated ruse carried out by Russia and the United States to distract Sweden long enough to steal its massage, as evidenced by the fact that Sweden won an unexpected 904 gold medals that year. Still, the Swedes held tight to the massage until 1999, when Y2K-related fears caused Swedish officials to release classified details of the massage, believing that the world would likely end. Today, the Swedish massage is practiced all over the world, though rumors that the Swedes are secretly working on an even better massage run rampant.

Body Wrapture’s namesake wraps work to tighten the body, and its massages work oppositely to loosen it.

The spa's licensed massage therapists, on the other hand, are finger-versed in myriad massage modalities. They deploy Swedish, acupressure, sports, or prenatal handiwork—and can also perform less conventional methods, such as percussion, lymphatic drainage, and medieval equine, which involves a knight on horseback riding roughshod over the back.
