Spa de la Vie’s licensed massage therapists personalize massage, face, and body treatments to relax and rejuvenate clients. Nimble fingers exorcise aches and pains with the characteristic long strokes and medium pressure of a Swedish massage. With the second option, guests can jump stress-first into a full-on day of pampering. Expose backs to an hour of Swedish massage, the intense pressure of deep-tissue massage, or a tri-phase hot-stone massage. Dead skin cells are evicted during an exfoliating brown-sugar scrub, and muscles melt or fight off advancing armadas of rubber duckies during a 20-minute tub soak. The moisturizing milk-and-honey shea-butter cocoon hydrates epidermises, and the pampering culminates with either a luxurious hot-oil treatment and scalp massage or a reflexology session.
Before their appointments, patrons can bulk up or calm down in Spa de la Vie’s fitness and sauna facilities. Although debates over the socioeconomic conditions leading to the rampant discontent of Angry Birds are permitted, cell-phone use is not allowed in the spa area. New clients should allow 20 extra minutes to fill out paperwork before their appointment begins.
Spa de la Vie
Mind, body, and soul merit equal attention at Spa de la Vie, where therapists pair a holistic approach with a meticulous eye for detail. In line with their focus on results, the spa’s certified consultants begin each massage, and body wrap with an in-depth analysis that helps them discern the most suitable treatment for each visitor.
While devising a treatment plan to complement skin type and beauty goals, the spa’s staff sets the stage for relaxation with complimentary slippers, robes, and herbal neck wraps. Technicians take care not to disturb burgeoning states of serenity as they gently slather skin with all-natural products during body wraps that exfoliate skin and highlight natural contours. Therapists employ a similarly tender touch as they treat backs and shoulders to massage techniques culled from eight modalities. Their menu of services includes prenatal massages for expectant mothers and the option to add a 20-minute reflexology session for feet prone to protesting their soreness by stomping on the surfaces of icy lakes.
