Metropolitan Relaxation Studio's private, holistic-minded studio allows its spa specialists to place sole focus on each client, enhancing services such as body wraps and lymphatic-drainage massage with tailored aromatherapy. Compressing appendages and trunks in a fresh clay pack, customized body wraps with essential oils and herbs encourage detoxification and weight loss, ease sore muscles, or impart wisdom for an upcoming movie role as a half-buried treasure chest. The lymphatic-drainage massage draws on deep-tissue techniques combined with essential oils and hot towels, kneading the body to promote the purging of toxins that can lead to weight loss, while aiming to stimulate the immune system. In addition to aromatherapy and spa music chanted by house monks, the studio's bronze-coloured walls and velvet drapes plunge guests deeper into relaxation during each treatment. Though not included in today’s Groupon, clients who would like to add 30 minutes to their session may do so for an additional $20 on the day of service.
Metropolitan Aromatherapy and Relaxation Studio
Candlelight flickers inside a treatment room, where relaxing aromatherapy scents mingle in the air with the gentle strains of soothing music. This is the home of Metropolitan Aromatherapy and Relaxation Studio‘s holistic practitioners, who aim to balance minds and bodies with massages that de-stress and soothe aches with natural oils, varying pressures, and hot stones. The private rooms also host intuitive services such as chakra balancing, which combines essential oils, crystals, and massage.
Elsewhere in the spa, body-vibration platforms help clients shimmy their way to slimmer waists and toned muscles. Before departing, they can wander up to the rooftop to take in gorgeous views of towering mountains.
