Inside the Asian-themed setting of Duke Morgan, The Spa, the eponymous owner leads a staff of gifted body glossers in performing treatments that have been inspired by techniques from around the world. The one-hour massage melds techniques from several massage styles into one ultimate treatment. Licensed therapists arrange hot stones alongside vertebrae to thaw the tension that freezes along the backbone tundra and to prepare pelts for a journey to the core of the Earth. Aromatherapy tickles olfactory outlets, and intense deep-tissue strokes create a therapeutic experience that can relieve chronic pain and injuries.
Clients can choose from seven different styles of one-hour Dermalogica facials, each of which specializes in treating a different skin woe. The skin-hydrating facial slathers a blend of green tea, rosemary, dog rose, and other natural ingredients onto mugs in order to flood them with moisture, and the Age Smart age-reversing facial summons the wrinkle-busting powers of hydroxy-acid exfoliation to firm up the skin the way. The facials can also ward off bacteria on acne-prone hides or renew the skin on the back and shoulders, which are so often ignored except to be slapped when their owners do a good job.
