Green Stone Spa rejuvenates forms by pairing gentle waxing and relaxing massage treatments with organic productry. Wielding pink, hard wax, specially formulated to appease the skin's natural craving for cotton candy, a professional aesthetician de-fuzzes sunless spots with a 15- to 30-minute Brazilian bikini wax. After abducting unwanted follicles, the hair guru dollops on a layer of azulene soothing oil and swaddles each client with a warm towel in order to dash any lingering irritation. Clients will leave the spa with a smoothness normally found on Crisco-covered marbles, and bald beauty endures anywhere between three and five weeks.
A 60-minute deep-tissue massage wields precise kneading that aims past the skin's surface, instead tending to neglected muscles, connective tissue, and dreams of becoming the mayor of America. After an hour, once-strained tendons transform into loose, rejuvenated muscles with muted soreness and tension.
GreenStone Spa’s four therapists infuse organic products and Eastern therapies into treatments that yield whole-body rejuvenation. Calling upon the curative properties of copper and sulfur, aestheticians administer hydrating and deep-cleansing facials that balance skin tone. Massage therapists tackle the muscular system with 11 modalities including Swedish and deep tissue. During the Sticks and Stones massage, they heat muscles and soften areas of concentrated tension with warmed stones and bamboo sticks. In the spa's gift shop, beauty professionals equip patrons with aromatherapy gifts and body products to remind them of the chronic ache that got away.
