The experienced therapists at Free Spirit Massage turn to tried-and-true holistic methods to heal muscle tightness, pains, and stress. They customize each massage to suit their guests’ needs, harnessing a variety of modalities that stretch beyond the basic Swedish massage. When the staff isn’t improving joint flexibility and range of motion with their massages, they’re pampering guests with detoxifying ion foot spas and wraps. They also soften skin with customized exfoliating scrubs crafted from dead sea salt, raw sugar, or ground coffee that incorporate a blend of botanicals, pure plant oils, and the bottled whispers of a reassuring grandmother.
