Licensed Massage Therapist Karen North’s desire to better bodies led her to shed corporate life and start A True North Massage, where she cossets frames with spa treatments and therapeutic massages. During the sea-salt body scrub, Karen scrubs skin with a blend of Dead Sea salt and organic, essential oils, removing dead cells, boosting circulation, and cleansing pores of milk-mustache remnants. The mélange’s minerals nourish dry skin, and buff and polish fine lines. The sugar-and-spice scrubs employ an aromatic citrus and spice-scented exfoliant to soften hides and protect against the aging effects of free radicals with an antioxidant-rich lather. Karen ends both scrubs with a massage, kneading muscles with organic jojoba and coconut oils to leave frames soft, hydrated, and properly greased for at-home waterslides.
Alternatively, body-contouring sessions begin with a 90-minute cupping massage, which uses glass cups and suction to stimulate circulation and help smooth cellulite by promoting drainage and loosening adhesions. Karen swathes guests in wraps imbued with organic oils that work to detoxify, tighten, and tone physiques. Her nimble fingers, experienced palms, and third thumb help tighten visages and stoke the lymphatic system to get fluids flowing.
