The relaxation therapists at Meridian & Facial Spa call upon ancient Chinese remedies that attempt to rouse levels of qi, or energy, within the body to restore internal strength and optimal immunity. A 30-minute herbal foot sauna immerses paws in temperate mist imbued with Tibetan and Chinese herbs, which replenish depleted reserves of nutrients in the body. During the 20-minute reflexology massage, therapists stimulate pressure points in the feet that they believe correspond to organ systems throughout the body. Described as being akin to an internal body massage, the treatment can boost metabolism, spur detoxification, and alleviate joint pain acquired from a part-time job as a ball-and-chain model.
Meridian & Facial Spa
Much in the way that veins circulate blood throughout the body, meridians facilitate the flow of the bodies' electrical energy—or chi—from organ to organ. Armed with this understanding, the specialists at Meridian & Facial Spa aim to keep meridians flowing smoothly with a variety of Chinese practices performed inside vibrantly colored treatment rooms. The team members frequently perform the spa’s signature Meridian massage, which aids in the body’s natural detoxification process by targeting chi highways and breaking up traffic jams like a siren-blaring ambulance strapped to the top of a monster truck. And as the spa's name suggests, the staff performs more than just meridian-inspired services, including facials and peels administered by cosmetologists.
