For the therapists at Sea Spa, massages aren’t simply a way to pamper oneself for an hour; they are tools that improve the function of the body. They evidence this belief within the earth-toned spa’s soothing environs, complete with hardwood floors, padded massage tables, and plush reflexology chairs. Here, the Swedish and deep-tissue strokes of their relaxing and rejuvenating spa massages are supplemented with natural ingredients. Mineral mud exfoliates during deep-cleansing massages, and sea salt works to clear the skin of toxins, impurities, and tattoos of full recycle bins. Steam loaded with herbs used in chinese and tibetan medicine seeps into the skin during footbaths that aim to detox from the inside, a process that can strengthen immune systems and increase energy.

Meanwhile, the center's massage therapist alleviates aches with reflexology techniques focused on the hands and feet, or she uses Thai massage to stretch muscles, which enhances flexibility more comfortably than sleeping in a pretzel-shaped bed.
