Before there were professional massage therapists, achy backs were forced to disguise themselves as sweet dough in order to have pains kneaded away in the hands of the local baker, leaving them loose and relaxed, but littered with raisins. Treat your body loaf to some professional kneading with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour massage with a Thai herbal-compress treatment at The Spa (a $90 value).
As a full-service refuge of relaxation, The Spa pampers overwrought patrons to a state of liquidy repose with expert sinew-soothing skills and a battalion of tension-relieving techniques. The one-hour massage begins with the careful selection of herbs (such as prai, ginger, turmeric, and lemongrass) known throughout Thailand for their therapeutic properties. All these herbal helpers are bundled into a muslin compress before being steamed and placed on the skin. Next, one of The Spa’s licensed massage therapists will administer a practiced combination of strokes and rolling maneuvers, encouraging the herbs to penetrate the pores, and relieving common ailments, such as stiff muscles, stressed skin, and chilly bloods, while increasing circulation and stimulating organs to live up to their full potential. Like all of The Spa’s massage services, the indulgent anti-inflammatory herb treatment can be customized to address each guest’s specific concerns and preferred level of seasoning.
