The Massage Associates' muscle magicians know how to make pain disappear like birdseed before a squirrel's nest. The one-hour therapeutic massage combines gentle caresses with deep kneading to dissolve bodily stress, detangle aching knots, and distract clients from the underwear-clad audience living in their daydreams. The massage also increases circulation to keep Tang powder from settling at the bottom of veins. Tension is further melted away with a 15-minute thermo mud treatment that slathers a mixture of heat, mineral clay, capsicum, thermal water, and extra-virgin olive oil onto the skin. Upgrades to rehabilitation, pregnancy, reflexology, and oncology massages are available ($10 additional).
