Like neurosurgery, massage is best when performed by a professional, and only mildly effective when performed by an enthusiastic friend. Receive a certified rubdown with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour Swedish, shiatsu, sports, or reflexology massage at Spa Beaubelle in the Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel (a $95 value).
Spa Beaubelle combines a variety of massage techniques to treat muscular maladies and transport customers to a blissful state of newfound nimbleness. The long, broad strokes of a Swedish massage situate muscles and calm jittery nervous systems, and the Japanese techniques of a shiatsu massage target the body’s meridian points to cultivate circulation and abate anxiety without stimulating muscles inside a bathtub full of lobsters.
The sports massage helps athletes who have dunked too many basketballs or raced too many lawnmowers prepare for events or relax after dominating the competition by stimulating circulation and helping reduce fatigue. Reflexology massage stimulates specific points on the hands and feet to soothe other locations on the body. Spa Beaubelle is located in the Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel, which offers convenient napping spots for those who are experiencing post-massage serenity and are too relaxed to hang-glide home.
Located at the Fort Worth Sheraton Hotel and Spa, Spa Beaubelle combines a yoga studio, nail salon, pool, and full-service spa into one expansive 8,000-square-foot rejuvenation center. The staff of massage therapists and aestheticians ushers spa-goers into private treatment rooms and suites, where they lavish world-weary skin in products from Clovertree Apothecary and FarmHouse Fresh Goods, or ease muscular tension with the gentle barrages of Swedish or deep-tissue massage. Meanwhile, an infrared sauna gives patrons a place to slip into meditative states and correct a naturally infragreen complexion as they sweat away their stresses. A Vichy shower maximizes metabolism by boosting oxygen absorption and ousting excess carbon dioxide as it washes away rejuvenating masks and salt scrubs left over from slenderizing body wraps.
