What treatments can I get
Pamper yourself with a body wrap containing seaweed, herbs, clay, aloe and even tequila or mescal, all of which help heal skin problems, toning it, adjusting it and promoting good circulation. These wraps relieve muscle and joint pain, treat acne, detoxify pores and move the grease around in order to eliminate it.
Get a hot stone massage, an oriental therapy during which the stones are placed on the location of the seven chakras in the body, from where energy is distributed throughout the body via energy channels. Hot stone therapies help harden the tissues and get mental and physical fatigue to disappear; furthermore, they drain lactic and carbonic acid and activate blood circulation.
