The organic euphoria factory of Spa Jȧ is renowned for its natural treatments, healing hands, and unyielding focus on long-term wellness. For 60 blissful minutes, the stressed, sore, and internally flummoxed can shuck off their aches and escape under the talented digits of Spa Jȧ’s massage therapists. A Swedish massage opens up rich, internal bank accounts of elation, as soothing mitts go from head to toe, kneading specific areas of discomfort. A deep-tissue massage uses greater pressure to make mincemeat of deep-rooted tangles, particularly sports-induced muscle tension. A hot-stone massage soothes worries with warm disks of penetrating heat, restoring muscles to a relaxed state, while the Spa Jȧ original fusion massage combines the Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage for a trifecta of felicity. Both the shiatsu and reflexology massages rely on ancient Asian pressure-point manipulation, with the former focusing its energies along the length of the body, and the latter needling into hands and feet to treat bodily ailments ranging from neck pain to spaghetti elbows.
Spa Jȧ’s welcoming staffers greet clients at the jet-black front desk before guiding each solace seeker to a private treatment room. Clients looking to extend their time in massage bliss or partake in a prenatal massage can upgrade for an additional fee.
Visitors to Spa Ja pass beneath a black-and-red façade inspired by the wood-scrap decorations of favelas, or shanty towns, in founder Giovanna Kupfer’s native Brazil. Within the minimalist tiled interior, therapists wield exclusively organic products and natural treatments that can bolster whole-body wellness without invasive procedures such as force-feeding skin cells broccoli.
