Aromatherapy wafts through the air during the body wrap, during which seaweed kelp and blue-green algae stimulate metabolism and detoxify the body. While cocooned, a hot towel infused with essential oils rests on the face before a cold-stone facial tightens and lifts the skin. A chamomile eye treatment deflates bags under the eyes with the healing power of tea, and a 90-minute massage follows the wrap with organic bamboo-silk lotions gliding over the skin via soothing strokes. Each pampering package is about two hours.
"Massage is my passion," says Nick West, a licensed massage therapist who channeled his interest in physiology and his desire to help people into a worthwhile career. Prior to each session, which takes place in a warm, private room filled with soft music and the purr of a thousand kittens, he chats with clients to get a sense of their emotional, mental, and physical needs. This allows him to custom tailor their treatment, whether incorporating soothing Swedish strokes or targeted deep-tissue kneads to achieve the most effective results. Though happy to assuage general aches, Nick finds the greatest reward in helping those suffering from chronic-pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and cancer.
