The massage therapist's appendages execute routines sourced from traditional Thai, Swedish, and deep-tissue massage. The hybrid mishmash of techniques also incorporates aspects of acupressure, passive yoga therapy, and reflexology to help clients restore their energy and attain the ability to scratch any part of their back with their mind.

Yes, the spray tans at Tropical Breeze Massage eschew harmful UV rays, but that's not even the half of it. They're also made from natural, organic ingredients such as red-wine powder and grape-seed oil, both of which work incredibly well on sensitive skin.

The salon's other specialty is massage therapy, which is available in seven distinct styles. There's the familiar feel of a Swedish or deep-tissue treatment, of course, but if you're looking for something a bit different, try out the warm bamboo fusion massage. This treatment replaces the massage therapist's hands with warm pieces of bamboo that relieve pain in the deepest layers of muscle.
The skincare experts at Kareen Aesthetics specialize in facial peels, whose chemicals exfoliate away dull surfaces to reveal the dewier, brighter complexions hiding just beneath. Accordingly, their arsenal of peels is extensive: there are name-brand peels, like those by Jessner and TCA, medical-grade VI peels, and peels designed to accomplish specific beauty goals. They even stock body peels, which treat skin south of the neck to leave wings and tails looking much younger. Peels aren't the only game in town, of course; visitors can also opt for antioxidant skin therapy, microdermabrasion, or an LED facial. Whether they're spotlighting skin with antioxidants, light, peels, or diamonds, technicians take time to keep clients relaxed and let them savor their moment of pampering.
