At Sain Visage, visitors can choose from a wide variety of facials, massages, and body treatments that effectively shed stress and dispel voodoo hexes. A 60-minute oxygen facial ($95) enhances blood circulation and rejuvenates skin, while a 40-minute express-treatment facial ($60) includes a light exfoliation, massage, and finishing mask. If you need to relieve tension while on break from the Pop–Tart factory, allow your muscles to become sweet fruit-purée beneath the hands of an expert therapist during a 30-minute de-stressor massage ($50). Or play hookey and languish your relaxation time with a 60-minute Swedish massage ($85), which uses long and smooth strokes with gentle to medium pressure.
