Each one of its body wraps, whether a detoxifying seaweed wrap or milk-and-honey exfoliating wrap, begins with a complimentary dry-brush exfoliation.

The Four Hands of Heaven massage even uses four hands, usually attached to two separate therapists, but occasionally just the one, to deeply relax those who have a hard time letting go during a regular massage.
