Soothe Your Senses follows in the footsteps of natural healer Lawrence Mathieu, using age-old plant poultices to calm aching backs, tired feet, and skin ailments. At each [massage appointment, a licensed massage therapist greets tight sinews using a choice of three kneading styles and knowledge gleaned from baking 6-foot-tall loaves of bread. The Swedish massage, composed of strokes as long and smooth as a buttered boa constrictor, can bolster circulation as it relaxes the body. The prenatal massage eases strain on weight-bearing joints and helps muscles shape up for childbirth. Clients who choose the therapeutic massage may release chronic tension and newly hatched butterflies as the therapist applies pressure to tendons, fascia, and deep layers of muscle tissue.
Soothe Your Senses Day Spa
The aestheticians at Soothe Your Senses Day Spa draw inspiration from two generations of Creole healing when doling out spa treatments infused with aromatherapy and healing herbs. Services catered toward men and women help banish impurities in muscles, pores, and spirit animals with Eastern healing traditions such as reiki massage and energy therapy. Three levels of spa membership offer discounts on services and workshops, and spa packages pamper clients with half- or full-day programs of massages, nailcare, and facials.
