This delightful Old City spa specializes in aromatherapy massage, wraps, and facials in an atmosphere that is sweet-smelling bliss. Gentle colors, the sounds of nature, soothing scents, and candlelight surround you from the moment you enter the lobby.
Have a cup of tea or juice in the cozy lounge before your treatment. Essential oils are chosen based on your preferences and what you hope to gain from your treatment—be it renewal and relaxation or headache and tension release. The facials are mostly gentle and relaxing, designed so you’ll enjoy the process as much as the outcome.
Prenatal massage, shiatsu, Reiki, reflexology, and educational seminars on feng shui are also offered, and prices are reasonable, especially considering the prime Old City location.
