One Eighty Wellness Spa relaxes and beautifies bodies with a bevy of stress sapping treatments administered within a relaxing atmosphere. With an aromatherapy massage, the spa's massage therapists make use of swedish, deep-tissue, and acupressure techniques, using aromatherapy oils to further relax tense muscles and leave bodies loose enough to be folded into subcompact sleeping pods for easy nighttime storage. Tuckered tootsies can seek solace in an essential pedicure, which augments a relaxing foot soak with expert nail shaping, cuticle care, and moisturizing lotion before coating nails in a choice of polish. The essential facial gently cleanses oily faces and exfoliates dead skin before liquefying upper-body stress with a face and shoulder massage. A specially formulated mask finishes off the treatment, providing mugs far more effective dermal nourishment than a prolonged soak in a bowl of breakfast cereal.

Meanwhile, aestheticians unearth glowing skin with five types of facials and higher-tech amenities, such as microdermabrasion and Endermologie cellulite-reduction treatments.

In the salon, nail technicians paint fingers and toes with durable OPI and Shellac polish to ensure their meticulous work stays chip-free, while lash specialists add volume to each blink with durable NovaLash extensions.
Not content to practice only such familiar pain-relief techniques as deep-tissue and medical massage, the therapists at this house of healing also unleash polarity therapy, detox footbaths, and a meridian-based tapping method known as Emotional Freedom Technology, or EFT. Eight types of kneading spring from the fingers of the therapists, from the sustained pressure of myofascial release to the directional strokes of lymph drainage. Powered by a gentle electric current, ionic footbaths surround paws in polarity in an effort to collect negatively charged toxins and restore the body’s pH balance. Like people who decorate their lawns with thousands of needles to keep the grass healthy, EFT sessions take their inspiration from acupuncture. But instead of piercing energy points, therapists performing this treatment manipulate them manually, a method designed to combat anxiety, stress, and anger.
