Like a trail of breadcrumbs in a dense forest, organic spa treatments guide guests to beauty and graceful, healthy aging at Vita Revive's European-inspired retreat. An expert team, including clinical aestheticians, a certified nutritional consultant, and a master reiki practitioner, reflects Vita Revive’s hybrid identity as both a wellness center and a spa. Together, these professionals blend Eastern and Western approaches, soothing stress with the ancient kneading of massage and targeted pressure of reflexology while fighting fine lines and wrinkles with modern facial treatments that rely on glycolic acid, pressurized oxygen, and microcurrents. Advanced technology fuels the spa’s infrared sauna and infrared body wraps, whereas old-fashioned water works its timeless wonders during a Vichy shower, whose high-pressure jets create a rain massage so that clients don't have to squeeze into their dishwasher for a full cycle.
As its name implies, the spa and wellness center incorporates USDA-approved organic ingredients into its treatments, crafting body wraps with seaweed algae extracts, moor mud, and Mediterranean wine and honey. The space itself also pays homage to the natural world with the earthy beige tones and bamboo flooring that outfit seven private treatment rooms.
Apothecary Wellness Spa's service menu may be long and diverse, but every treatment has one thing in common: holistic, eco-friendly products and techniques that calm the mind and reveal beauty naturally. Facials rely on formulas from Naturopathica and Ilike Organic Skincare to purify and revitalize complexions through fully personalized treatments, each of which include soothing massages and a bounty of hot towels. Custom-massage sessions benefit from the addition of individually blended essential oils, and body treatments soften the skin by imparting essences of wholesome fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Even the waxing treatments take a natural approach by using Nufree, a plant-based, hair-removal formula that's naturally antibacterial and free of waxes and sugars, resulting in less skin irritation than the hard waxes or recently-lit birthday candles used by other spas.

Twisty scalp canopies quickly become stunningly straightened with a keratin smoothing treatment, which softens, smoothes, and strengthens fallow follicle farms into majestically long strands. An all-natural solution is used to achieve notable results without unpleasant odors and excessive fumes and works exceptionally well with damaged hair, frizzy locks, and woolly mammoth coats. Unlike New Year’s resolutions, the treatment lasts two to four months and will leave hair conditioned and more manageable even after it returns to its natural, springier form.
At Neal's, a team of highly trained pampering professionals apply the latest age- and ache-combating techniques to restore beauty and bliss to flushed faces and embattled backs. During the customized, one-hour European facial, an aesthetician will perform an analysis of the frumpled face in question before administering a thorough cleansing and exfoliating vegetable peel to exorcise the ear-framed masterpiece of dead, dry skin cells (a $70 value). Afterward, a facial massage kneads away tenderness and eases facial stress brought on by years of awkward elevator small talk.
