Blissful Touch Skincare Therapy’s licensed aesthetician and massage therapist, Linda Morrison Wacholtz, saps stress from physiques with a menu of skin-soothing services. During the pumpkin-spice spa foot treatment, patrons can steep lower gams in a heated soak infused with essential oils, then purge paws of dried skin cells with an autumnal scrub, which exfoliates pores and prompts amorous ankle squeezes from pumpkin vines. Pampered feet don a skin mask and toasted mitts before a reflexology massage artfully plies pressure points. Polished toes can also exchange their coats for ones of a newer hue or collectible Shellac portraits of famous podiatrists.
Alternately, knuckles slide over bothersome knots during a 60-minute aromatherapy massage. Oils fill the room with calming scents as practiced strokes push at overworked muscles and creaky limb hinges. The full-body session kneads at torsos and torso extensions, and can impart such benefits as reduced soreness and anxiety, improved circulation, and the ability to crack backs with perfect pitch—the third-most-important qualification for the presidency after smooth cursive writing and ownership of enough documents to pack an entire library.
