Licensed massage therapist Debra Fazio reduces tension and alleviates pain in a soothing spa environment marked by nature sounds and calming music. During the La Stone massage, Fazio places warm stones on muscles to release tension and morph hypercolor tattoos. Long, gliding Swedish strokes encourage circulation, and a final application of cold stones invigorates the skin. Designed to hydrate and smooth extremities, hand and foot treatments begin with an exfoliation, proceed with an aromatherapy massage, and conclude with a mineral-rich mud mask. By rubbing rough heels with sea salt and sand, Fazio evokes the calming feeling of strolling or crab walking along a beach.
At the outset of the 90-minute package, the fragrance of cinnamon, orange, clove, and sugar curls throughout the air, announcing the ingredients in the warm body scrub. Rubbed across the body, the fragrant abrasive leaves skin as smooth as a portrait of the Fonz embroidered on a silk pillow. Nourishing potassium and calcium in the rhassoul clay mask cleanse and tighten skin, and a thermal blanket seals in warmth. Follicles tingle under a soothing scalp massage that inspires guests to head home and craft hats out of ladyfingers.
Though BodyBliss Time Massage sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
