One-hour Serenity massage: Using Swedish techniques, a massage therapist kneads, rolls, and strokes away tension and muscle stiffness or soreness to promote a serene, relaxed state of body and mind (a $49 value for new clients; $65 for returning customers).
One-hour Vitality massage: This sports massage soothes muscle soreness with stretching and various massage techniques to release tension and uncoil trouble spots (a $49 value for new clients; $65 for returning customers).
One-hour Skinny massage: A fitness-based massage that uses voodoo and special targeted techniques (mainly voodoo) to tighten and tone skin, promote weight loss, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks (a $49 value for new clients; $65 for returning customers).
30-minute hot-stone massage: The quick, smooth hot-stone-therapy massage is perfect for a less traditional, more igneous massage. The therapist warms flat, smooth stones and places them on mystical zones of convergence on the body, drawing out stress and deeply warming muscles (a $55 value).
Mona Lisa's Massage & Wellness
A few wisps of smoke from an extinguished candle hang in the air, along with the lingering fragrance of aromatic oils and the soft strains of jazz or nature sounds. One of the licensed massage therapists at Mona Lisa's Massage & Wellness has completed another relaxing session, easing muscle tension and stress with modalities such as hot-stone therapy, pregnancy or sports massage, or reflexology. The center's practitioners operate in an intimate and tranquil four-room suite complete with a mani-pedi station. In the couples room, pairs enjoying a Yin + Yang massage nosh on chocolate-covered strawberries and discuss how to install electric handlebar warmers on a tandem bike.
The crew exfoliates skin with coconut-lime-scented scrubs and detoxifies bodies with wraps that include a session in the steam sauna. They also aim to clear complexions with 10 different anti-aging facial treatments and peels.
