Afternoon: Massage and Sauna and Sunless Tanning

Return to the Soakhouse & Soapery for a deep tissue or aromatherapy massage. Their skilled therapists use techniques that relieve tension, improve circulation and enhance overall well-being. Following your massage, visit the sauna to complete your therapeutic experience. The dry heat from the sauna helps to expel toxins, clear your pores and relax your muscles even further—an ideal way to cap off the spa treatments.

If you’re looking for a healthy glow, try the spa’s sunless tanning services. This safe and effective treatment provides a perfect, streak-free tan that looks natural and is tailored to your desired shade. It's a great way to boost your confidence and add a radiant touch to your rejuvenated self.
