The scents of aromatherapy drift throughout Ash Britt Je' Ne' Celebrity Spa, where licensed massage therapists have been pampering stressed muscles with healing massage strokes since 1982. Inside fragrant massage suites, therapists rub away muscle tension with gliding effleurage strokes that stimulate circulation and set off toxin scavenger hunts sponsored by the lymphatic system. The gentle motions pave the way for firmer petrissage strokes, whose combination of kneading and tapping focuses on muscle knots and areas of particular stress. The massage cleanses muscles of impurities and loosens stiff knots, assuaging both quotidian tension and pain from overexertion, chronic conditions, and back flipping home from the Olympic closing ceremonies. Clients will also receive a complimentary spa gift to take home at the end of their massage.
