The experts also swaddle clients in body wraps chock-full of extracts, herbs, and botanicals with detoxifying elements.

At Massage Sanctuary, nationally certified massage therapist Brandon Woolard offers his clients the opportunity to relax and receive personalized massages in a soothing atmosphere. After initial consultations—complete with a box full of stress stones if customers need some preliminary unwinding—guests undress to their own comfort levels and fit between sheets, ready for calming massages. As he works, Brandon encourages his customers to speak up about comfort levels in case the heated table is too hot or the aromatherapy ostrich too pungent and squawking. Brandon soothes backs and muscles with a variety of modalities, incorporating Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, hot-stone, and aromatherapy methods into his massages. Afterward, complimentary mints and water rejuvenate the senses as customers, suspended in massage euphoria, go home, take hot baths or showers, and maintain relaxed states.
