Tired and tense bodies will enjoy The Chopping Block's relaxing hour-long Swedish massage, with a licensed massage therapist. Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, is the most popular type of knead. It uses long, connective strokes and kneading to melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. Or, if long hours conducting commuter trains have left your skin sullied and sallow, opt for the European deep-pore-cleansing facial. One of The Chopping Block's licensed aestheticians will slough off dead skin cells with a thorough exfoliation, extract unsightly dermal invaders, and apply a specialized mask to the skin, all while your hands heat up in warming mitts. As the mask sets, your hands are removed from the mitts and joined with the décolleté area for a soothing massage, and when the treatment is complete, the aesthetician will provide you with a personalized skin analysis and tips on how to hold your head to more prominently feature your "best side."
