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.
Aesthetically Speaking’s one-hour microdermabrasion unearths the youthful skin hidden just below a layer of dead skin cells, minimizing fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. After an aesthetician tweaks the treatment to suit client preferences, skilled hands guide the microdermabrasion device as it evens out skin tone and effaces the skate tracks left by insects in heated face-hockey matches. Clients can opt for three, six, or nine treatments in the tranquil confines of Aesthetically Speaking’s cell-phone-free skincare suite.
At Warrior Body Spa, a team of holistic health experts help patients rid their bodies of toxins with ionic footbaths and body wraps. Their body wraps use medical bandages soaked in herbal solution to leech toxins from, shed inches from the body, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite while imparting useful nutrients including vitamin K, caffeine, and collagen. Clients can also relieve tension with a variety of massages, including their therapeutic massage that incorporating essential oils, long strokes, and muscle kneading, to stimulates blood flow and reduce tension, and The Royal Warrior, which helps clients relax with a variety of hot oils and towels. Specialty massages are also available for pre-natal patients and teens active in sports, and an express option caters to those seeking emphasis on the head, neck, back and arms.
