Spa Exo'tique's experienced crew lavishes patrons with a relaxing afternoon of three stress-melting services and elegant refreshments in the spa's Serenity Relaxation room. In a serene private therapy room, a licensed massage therapist soothes muscles and stress with the gliding strokes of a Swedish massage and moist heat packs, unweaving tangled muscles french braided by bored fourth-grade girls. Staffers then relieve congestion and improve the body's circulation with a reflexology treatment, applying gentle pressure to energy points on hands and feet and smooth ped-appendages in a moisturizing and refreshing lotion. During the mini facial, aestheticians oust impurities and skin-dulling cells in a liberating cleansing revolution. Gentle hands coat skin in a customized Eminence mask, banishing ailments such as acne, signs of aging, or infestations of Groucho Marx glasses. A hydrating moisturizer massage then seals in skin's silkiness for refreshed and stress-free facial features.
Following the trifecta of spa treatments, patrons partake in the afternoon tea in the spa's Serenity Relaxation room, sampling edibles elegant enough to form a grocery monarchy, including herbal tea, a yogurt-drizzled fruit platter, and biscotti.
Upon entering Spa Exo'tique's 4,600-square-foot relaxation haven, clients head to their gender-appropriate changing facilities, dress themselves in comfortable garments, and unwind with a steamy cup of tea in the Serenity Room. Once ready, they meander into one of the 12 private treatment rooms, where experienced staffers skillfully relieve tension with massages, soften skin with body treatments, and purify pores with facials. Beyond the pampering techniques, the spa uplifts appearances with medical-grade services that range from chemical peels to the laser-powered removal of clients' unwanted fuzz, whether it's hair or simply a floor rug with separation anxiety.
