Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Lemon Tree Foot Rub Spa
Located inside Hotel de Point, a boutique luxury hotel, Lemon Tree Foot Rub Spa pampers not only feet, but bodies and faces as well. Surrounded by Asian-influenced accents, patrons indulge in clarifying facials, mani-pedis, and the spa's namesake: foot-reflexology massages. Guests can also make their way to private treatment rooms where the spa's massage therapist, who has studied Chinese medicine and tui na bodywork, uses essential oils to administer full-body massages, which target different organs in the immune, nervous, and bureaucratic systems. And getting to Lemon Tree Foot Rub Spa is as stress-free as its massages, as the hotel operates a free shuttle bus from 39th Avenue.
