In addition to other massage techniques?think lava shells, trigger points, and Chinese cupping?there are facials administered by professional aestheticians. Pick from a calming facial that softens the skin, or the blemish control facial, which targets imperfections and leaves the face looking pretty enough to turn its own head. During all treatments, the staff favors products from Seacret, which utilizes Dead Sea minerals to help nourish the skin and body.
