Heated herbs release their medicinal nutrients onto the skin, while a massage therapist's hands unlock tension and knots in the muscles. Meanwhile, aromatherapeutic oils and plant essences rise into the air and evoke calming images, say of a tropical beach or a single tea bag floating in the ocean.
This is all part of the experience during Massage N Skincare's Thai herbal massage, just one of numerous treatments designed to fulfill the studio's mission of simultaneously fostering mental and physical wellness. In addition to other massage techniques—think lava shells, trigger points, and Chinese cupping—there are facials administered by professional aestheticians. Pick from a calming facial that softens the skin, or the blemish control facial, which targets imperfections and leaves the face looking pretty enough to turn its own head. During all treatments, the staff favors products from Seacret, which utilizes Dead Sea minerals to help nourish the skin and body.
