For good measure, the aestheticians will reduce you to the consistency of microwaved butter by rubbing and wrapping your feet with a warm and steamy towel treatment.
Great Face & Body's community-minded, total-heath mission extends even into its profits: the spa donates 10% of its proceeds to international aid group CARE and 100% of its natural, sexy radiance to impoverished villages without electricity.
