Here's what you'll find in a private treatment room at Callisto Therapeutic Spa: A skilled aesthetician or massage therapist. A heated table. Matte, dark walls that spin a cocoon-like effect. Hot towels. An automated essential oil diffuser, quietly emitting puffs of fragrant steam. Complimentary herbal tea and infused water, scooped from the spa's drinkable moat.

What are the bars for? During ashiatsu massages, they help the therapist keep her balance as she walks on the client's back. There are plenty of less intensive massage therapies on duty. Clients can commission craniosacral, reflexology, or thermal palms, an alternative to hot stones and prenatal massage; each is customized to address specific ailments and pain points. Facials, meanwhile, include microdermabrasion treatments and skin analyzation. Despite the service menu's diversity, each treatment is conducted with a focus on total relaxation.
