Customers receive a 60-minute sinew kneading under the deft hands of a Rometta Salon & Spa massage specialist, who adjusts stroke patterns and intensity in accordance with stated wishes and instructions tattooed on patients' backs. A combination of Swedish and deep-tissue techniques helps calmed the mind and release tension and lactic acid from the muscles.
Those who also opt for the 30-minute express facial receive a massage that loosens up smiles of contentment, arched eyebrows of surprise, and upside-down noses of confusion, and a cleansing, mask, and moisturizer then help replenish epidermal aquifers while sealing in luminescence. During the personalized 60-minute facial, a skincare technician adjusts the treatment to the particularities of the client’s face, extracting obstructions and extending the facial massage to the upper chest to soak up its puddles of stress.
Rometta Salon & Spa
In 1964, the Carusos decided to start a spa. They wanted to open it in a century-old Victorian house, but the fixer-upper definitely needed a few renovations first. For a year, the Carusos used their evenings and weekends to fashion a spa atmosphere reminiscent of ancient Roman baths. Amid chandeliers, corinthian columns, and engravings of ancient Olympic potato-sack races, stylists craft haircuts and therapists soothe muscles in private treatment rooms. Though stylists use nationally renowned products from Dermalogica and Redken during treatments, they also use styling tools patented by the Carusos themselves.
