Choose Between Two Options
- $79 for a 90-minute tropical-themed spa package for one (a $180 value)
- $144 for a 90-minute tropical-themed spa package for two (a $360 value)<p>
Each package includes:
- An aromatherapy hot-stone massage on a heated massage table
- Cooling eye mask
- Exfoliating hand treatment
- Paraffin hand treatment<p>
The spa package begins in a darkened treatment room that’s scented with coconut and lime. As a heated table diffuses warmth into your body, a massage therapist kneads muscles with Swedish and lomi lomi techniques. The therapist enhances the massage with warm stones, and relaxes your eyes with a cool pack. Meanwhile, ocean waves undulate in the background. To mimic the feeling of sand, the therapist scrubs your hands with coconut-lime salt, sweeping away excess with steamy towels. Then, the therapist moisturizes your hands with oil and paraffin. Throughout the treatment, the practitioners use all-natural, organic products that are fair-trade certified.
Affordable Spa Services
Affordable Spa Services is located in the Scott's Addition Historic District and is home to 5 insured, nationally certified, and state licensed massage therapists, who have experience with different massage modalities and natural health techniques. During hot-stone massage, gentle hands soothe tense tissues with Swedish techniques while warm lava rocks loosen muscle fibers. Reflexology relieves tension and stimulates energy throughout the body by focusing on the head, ears, hands, and feet, and trigger-point therapy removes the toxins that can cause poor circulation and migraines. Guests can also enjoy a mineral bath in a cast-iron claw-foot tub, or get a massage with a significant other in the vineyard or Chesapeake Bay-themed couples rooms. Additionally, therapists slather backs with detoxifying mud, target dry skin and arthritis with vitamin-rich paraffin wax, and erase scowl lines.
