Helmed by a husband and wife team of experienced massage therapists, The Healing Arts Day Spa tends to every ache level with 60- or 90-minute massages. Therapists mitigate muscular pains with an extensive repertoire of classic stress-relieving techniques, including Swedish, sport, deep tissue, and imagining stress being crushed by a boulder made of chocolate ice cream. Desert hot-rock massages strategically scatter hot basalt and cool marble stones across backs, whose aching surfaces are divested of tension by the stones’ smooth finish and alternating temperatures. DIY tranquility-seekers can opt for the 60-minute couples massage class, taking relaxation into their own hands as they learn from owner Terrell Lynn the strokes of four different massages, and experience a hot-stone massage first-hand.
The Healing Arts Day Spa
Both of The Healing Arts Day Spa’s two locations enhance the transporting effects of their services with decor that evokes a Tuscan-style villa. Vines crawl across shelves and along the backs of chairs, walls are painted to resemble lightly weathered stucco, and stone tiles create the feel of an airy courtyard. In softly lit rooms, the hands of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians deliver relaxation through massage, body wraps, and skin and hair treatments. Customers can even learn to pamper themselves: owner Terrell Lynn teaches a course in couples’ massage that helps forge closer bonds between spouses or strangers on a long bus ride.
