Rose's resumé is as impressive as it is diverse: 15 years as a massage therapist, stints in both beauty school and the National Holistic Institute, and work at numerous hair salons, spas, and saunas. Now––from Thursday through Monday––The Healing Rose’s mastermind focuses her aesthetic energy on ridding bodies of aches, skin issues, and stress. Her specialties include therapeutic hot-stone massages, which harness the warmth of up to 60 stones to increase circulation and relieve tight tendons. To enhance the experience, an aromatherapy add-on releases the refreshing scents of flowers, lavender, or rosemary and mint. Rose also rejuvenates visages with a facial that forgoes extractions in favor of a scrub, a toning mask, and a hand and rhino-horn massage.
Also located inside the spa is fashion boutique 7 Red Rose, which stocks an eclectic range of jewelry, candles, gifts, and hair accessories, all handmade by local artists.
