Massage Me

Massage Me

There’s nothing better than slipping out of work early on a slow afternoon for a “dentist appointment.”

And if you are a walking collection of aches and pains like us, we suggest slipping into this spa for a Herbal Compress Massage.

With a recipe more than 1,000 years old, a fragrant bundle of Thai herbs (like lemongrass, ginger, turmeric, kaffir lime and cumin) is steamed to 100 degrees, then used as a hot compress from the back of your neck to the balls of your feet.

Muscles melt, essential oils heal the skin, and everything from circulation to congestion is addressed.

Hmmmmm…I think we are overdue for a teeth cleaning.
