Tucked inside the luxurious confines of a four-diamond hotel, Spa Botanica provides a lengthy list of services. Smash pockets of muscle pressure into smithereens with a 50-minute Swedish massage, which utilizes long, soothing strokes of light to medium pressure to wring out storm water from weathered bodies ($105). Maintain appearances with a 25-minute refresh treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates, and de-spackles skin ($55), or slough off lifeless layers of skin cells and accumulated parking tickets with a 50-minute aromatherapy exfoliation, which includes a restorative salt scrub ($105). Or, prepare finger shingles for grueling 12-round thumb wrestling bouts with an essential manicure ($40). Bask in the glow of friendly, humanity-affirming service inside an exceptionally indulgent facility that transports bodies to a dimension of unrivaled relaxation.
