Spa Pure's talented staff pampers, soothes, and revivifies patron pelts through an array of luxurious spa services. In a 30-minute massage, nurturing hands tend to tense knots and tight muscles in backs, necks, and shoulders weary from stress, hard work, and bench-pressing pianos (a $29 value). Aestheticians cater each half-hour, customized relaxation facial to customers' wishes, affinity for pickles, and skin type (a $55 value). Determining the products and methods best suited to the face before them, these epidermis experts cleanse pores of accumulated grit and apply toner to firm and tighten. After a round of exfoliation and extraction of blackheads, faces receive a soothing massage and a noncommittal face mask. The process ends with the application of eye cream and a pore-slaking moisturizer.
