The trickling sounds of the lobby’s 7-foot waterfall filter into the private therapy rooms of The Rub Club Massage Studio, enhancing the relaxation of massages administered in a variety of soothing modalities. Chiropractor Jeremy Watson opened the studio in 2009 as an extension of his interest in holistic healing, and his whole-body approach is evident in beds that warm clients with inner heating mechanisms and soft music that plays throughout each treatment session. Although the spa’s music stations feature tunes handpicked to optimize relaxation, therapists encourage clients to plug their own iPods into the dock and play self-recorded soundtracks of doves cooing top 40 hits. While you tap your toes to the beat or lie perfectly still on the massage table, the therapist employs Biofreeze lotion to soothe painful points and Prossage products to further slacken stresses.
