Located in the Marriott Evergreen, a resort described by an NBC Channel 11 reporter as "like being in another world," The Spa at Evergreen celebrates 10 years of transporting guests to another dimension of relaxation with pampering massage, skin, and nail services. The décor of each of the in-hotel spa’s treatment rooms is inspired by an element to add an air of ritual to massages, facials, and body wraps. In the earth room, dark tones and the soothing scent of sandalwood and teak form a stark contrast to the lavender-colored, citrus-scented wind room, where aestheticians perform facials with Dermalogica products. In the water room, a rain shower in the ceiling rinses mud and seaweed from bodies after exfoliating body treatments or slimming wraps. Flickering candles warm the final treatment space, aptly named the fire room, where soothing massages atop heated treatment tables melt muscles like caramel snowmen.
Proprietor and massage therapist Sam Worley dissolves stress through massage modalities for couples or individuals. Clients can relax under soft lighting, studying Asian-influenced artwork while consulting with the massage therapist to determine appropriate techniques based on muscle tension, personal preferences, and eye color. Nimble fingers traverse the dermal canvas with long, gliding strokes during the Swedish massage, focus on decreasing common aches accompanying pregnancy in a prenatal massage, or weigh down bodies prone to floating away in a hot-stone massage. In the couples instructional massage, each participant takes turns being gently poked and prodded while their partner observes, learning techniques such as pressure-point manipulation to use at home, For maximum relaxation, aromatherapy can be incorporated into massages on request.
At Pamper Yourself, a choice of seven massage types makes it easy to do just that. Need to unwind? Try the long, gliding strokes of the Swedish or hot-stone modalities. Have an athletic injury? A sports massage soothes those overworked muscles. These massages can be combined with other services—including facials, seaweed body wraps, and mani-pedis—for a few hours of luxury.
At JetSet Spa & Massage, trained massage therapists kick-start well-being with the restorative power of massage.

JetSet also enhances beauty with spa services such as mani-pedis, body scrubs, and facial treatments.

At Miu Miu Spa, everything comes back to the feet. That's because the spa specializes in foot massage and reflexology. The former uses traditional Chinese acupressure to jumpstart relaxation, and the latter applies pressure to points in the feet that correlate with other parts of the body. Both treatments impart relaxation and alleviate stress across the whole body, not just the feet.
