TrackStar Wellness Spa's cadre of dedicated therapists sets clients afloat on a lazy river of relaxation, their soothing services bolstered by spa amenities such as on-site showers, complimentary water, and relaxing music. Strive to hydrate and rejuvenate dry, cracked skin with a full-body scrub. Epidermal deserts are first treated to a dry brush exfoliation that whisks away dead skin cells, as well as microscopic tumbleweeds and cartoon roadrunners. An organic body butter is then applied to the skin. Guests can choose from five different scents for their treatment, including ginger, lemongrass, and green tea. Following the scrub, bodies are kneaded with a Swedish massage that uses long, flowing strokes to relax exhausted muscles. Tired tootsies can opt for the Thai foot-reflexology option, which applies precise thumb and finger pressure to reflex points on the feet that may correspond to different parts of the body. Through these anatomical connections, foot reflexology can help improve circulation, stimulate toxin removal, and silence toes' incessant squeals for roast beef.
