The massage therapists and aestheticians at Tokyo Spa dole out stress-blasting services inside a modern, yet cozy studio. Slate tiles, rich purple linens, and floral accents set the tone for soothing treatments, such as mani-pedis and Swedish massages.
Because it's modeled after a Japanese spa, there are several foot-massage treatments, too. And there's even an ashiatsu massage table, where therapists kick entrenched knots to the curb—almost literally—using their feet and body weight. They rely on the parallel bars above the bed to steady themselves while they traipse across the client's back.
Heated stones can be especially beneficial during a massage. In addition to providing a warm, reassuring weight, their heat penetrates down to the muscles to quickly loosen them. At most salons and spas, adding hot stones costs extra. At Green Massage, it's complimentary.
Green massage's therapists customize their massages to the client, adding the hot stones upon request and performing deep-tissue work on areas that need extra attention. They also pay special attention to the feet during reflexology treatments.
When smooth river rocks are radiating heat through your muscles, loosening ligaments and untying knots, stress doesn't stand a chance.

That's why Green Massage makes it easy to squeeze in a session no matter what your time constraints, offering massages that range from 30 to 90 minutes.
