Texans looking for an international spa experience needn't travel far, thanks to Carrollton's Spa Castle. And quite a castle it is, spanning 140,000 square feet of swimming pools, Asian-style saunas, European-style water spas, and treatment rooms—not to mention an onsite hotel. Like its sister location in Queens, New York, Spa Castle is loaded with luxurious amenities. Read on to learn about a few of the relaxing activities at the 24-hour (and kid-friendly) facility:
Sauna Valley: The second floor houses 10 toasty sauna rooms, each composed of different materials and set to temperatures ranging from 90 to 189 degrees. For example, the Charcoal Tower's activated charcoal is designed to remove toxins from the body, while the Color Therapy sauna room employs chromotherapy to balance the body, mind, and soul's energies.
Hydrotherapy: Spa Castle's indoor and outdoor bade pools feature strategically placed jets that massage different body areas. Aside from helping visitors unwind, the jets in these five pools aim to improve circulation, muscle tension, and digestion.
Lounges: Separated into men's and women's facilities, each of the spa's locker rooms are furnished with all your wellness needs. In addition to electronically operated lockers, the area features a lounge filled with plush couches and a flat-screen TV plus an ondol room with heated floors.
Bathing house: Modeled after traditional Asian and European bathhouses, Spa Castle's bathing house includes four heated mineral pools and a cold plunge pool, which can be used to perform contrast hydrotherapy. The area also features wet and dry saunas and seated showers.
Spa treatments: Like the structure itself, the spa's menu of services draw on global influences. Massages may employ Swedish, shiatsu, or reflexology techniques, and several types of traditional Korean body scrubs are available. Elsewhere, Lavender Beauty Spa offers indulgent caviar facials, nourishing body wraps, and rejuvenating mani-pedis.
Pain and tension can take many forms within the human body. The therapists at Intrinsic Touch and Bodyworks locate the root causes behind those aches and use specialized modalities to address those issues. Above all else, the therapists value their ability to personalize treatments, adopting the best possible approach depending on the client's situation. They offer a wide range of bodywork modalities, including everything from Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to craniosacral and trigger-point therapy. Some of the modalities—such as reflexology and acupressure—even promote holistic well-being by attempting to correct imbalances in the natural flow of the body's energies. Intrinsic Touch and Bodyworks can also turn its treatments into completely indulgent experiences by adding a rejuvenating body scrub or a quick game of Candy Land.
The practitioners at Shiatsu Reflex Spa, now under new ownership, know moves from so many different massage modalities, you'd swear they had different sets of hands for each one. Depending on your consultation, therapists might recommend a shiatsu session, which activates and relieves points of extreme tension with pressure from the fingertips. They might also go with ashiatsu, the "barefoot" technique that finds therapists actually walking on clients' backs. Those in need of simple relaxation would benefit from aromatherapy or Swedish massage, which was the only form of medical treatment covered under the Vikings' insurance plan.
The scents of lavender and citrus fill of the rooms of Experience the Felax. Tucked away in private corners, licensed therapists gently scrub, soak, and knead their clients' feet during a reflexology performed with aromatherapy oils. It may come as no surprise that the spa's main mission is to pamper feet—the name itself is a portmanteau of "feet" and "relax"—although the massage therapists incorporate holistic techniques into traditional massages as well. The spa's menu of Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue massages also includes a house back and neck massage that blends Eastern and Western techniques.
