Tree of Life Wellness Center
In addition to the energy-balancing benefits of Japanese reiki treatments, massage therapists also evict bodily stress with Russian-style platza sessions. After reclining on a bench in the steamy comfort of the onsite sauna, clients submit skin to the gentle swirls of oak leaves infused with hot water and olive oil soap. The combination of heat and bodywork nourishes skin, exfoliating away grime and temporary tattoos that keep mysteriously reappearing. In private treatment rooms, therapists also practice traditional Western massage modalities, kneading muscles during Swedish and deep-tissue sessions illuminated by flickering candlelight.
