Licensed massage therapist and owner Jeannie Wilmot rids bodies of pent-up stress with souped-up massages and detoxifying mini facials. During hour-long, full-body Swedish kneads, Jeannie employs a series of long strokes and soothing aromatherapy oils to loosen and realign rebellious sinews. Then, using 100% pure Bokek salt harvested from the Southern Dead Sea, she scrubs physiques to speed healing and eliminate residue from recent Sharpie-jousting competitions. Facials bolster detoxifying spa sessions and begin with deep-cleansing and thorough exfoliation. After a complexion-customized serum sinks into pores, smooth, warm basalt stones find temporary homes along hands, arms, neck, and shoulders to flatten stress mounds built up from strain, anxiety, and gymnastic somnambulating. Stones then migrate to facial surfaces to boost circulation, transport serum nutrients deeper into the skin, and alleviate sinus pressure.
