Seaweed Body Mask
Highlights: Improves circulation, eliminates toxins
Along with the fun of being wrapped in seaweed like your favorite sushi roll, seaweed’s benefits are quintessential in your body’s restorative process. This mask stimulates your circulatory system, therefore, eliminates a buildup of toxins. It is a process of sensational application, followed by cozying up in a thermal blanket to further the mask’s effectiveness. Once the seaweed’s nutrients is absorbed by your skin, you’ll shower off to reveal immediately softer and smoother skin to be polished off with seaweed body cream, massaged in as the final step to the treatment.
Carib-Style Thai Massage

While Thai massage is a popular offering, none are as effective as this fusion of Caribbean influence to the traditional Thai style. The benefits of this massage are a list we all try to achieve daily, with the use of pills, medicines, exercise classes and relaxation techniques, but wrapped up into one 80-minute treatment that is more effective than any of our lists combined. Starting at the top of the list and going down the roster; Reduce stress, improve blood flow, increase energy and flexibility. If you’re a standard massage goer, this would be the time to switch to something a little more unique, yet just as effective.
Couples Moonlight Massage
Moonlight is one of the pristine imageries of seduction–add massage to the equation for the ideal experience of intimacy and rejuvenation.

The holistic treatment focuses on unclogging pores to prevent new pimples from forming, as well as reducing free-radical damage, and clearing dead cells from the skin’s surface.

As you lay in your wrap, the blue mountain mixture also targets trouble areas of cellulite–ultimately reducing it so you can feel your best in the moment, and even better in the long-term.
