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.

The licensed massage therapists at Refresh and Restore have worked their therapeutic magic on triathletes and Olympians, but their primary focus is on everyday people suffering from chronic tension. Knotted muscles slacken under flowing Swedish strokes and indulgent add-ons such as hot stones and essential oils. Guests can also solicit a massage therapist for a specialty couples massage, ideal for married couples on an anniversary or superheroes and villains seeking to let bygones by bygones.
Doctor of Chiropractic Luell sees the body as a single harmonious unit that's built to heal itself, so the doctor's role is simply to trigger those self-healing mechanisms. Noninvasive adjustments encourage healthier brain-body communication by nudging vertebrae away from nerve tissue and internal self-destruct buttons. The resulting balance helps the body overcome a range of ailments, such as back pain, headaches, and digestive issues.
