Callisto Therapeutic Spa
Before any treatments even begin at the eco-friendly, organic Callisto Therapeutic Spa, guests sip herbal tea and sample soothing thermal pillows filled with flax seeds. They then head into the warm, dimly lit treatment rooms for a tension-busting massage or rejuvenating facial.
Callisto’s therapists specialize in ashiatsu foot-pressure massage—their therapeutic massage even combines ashiatsu with customized pressure, essential oils, and hot and cold therapy—but they perform other massages, too. One is the thermal palms massage, which uses soft, heated hand-held pods filled with such natural ingredients as oatmeal to treat chronic tension, especially around the neck. The therapists also home in on specific parts of the body with reflexology and scalp massages.
During skincare treatments, aestheticians slough off dead skin cells and lipstick prints from overeager aunts with microdermabrasion and deeply exfoliate backs with back facials. Their customized Callisto Classic facial treats a variety of skin woes, including acne and fine lines with such ingredients as salicylic acid, witch hazel, vitamin E, and willow bark.
