Body Brush Exfoliation* – 4:30–6:30pm, Massage Room
Revive your skin and spirit by sampling our new exfoliation treatment. We begin by dry-brushing the skin to remove dead skin, increase circulation, and provide a feeling of invigoration, followed by an application of body lotion with your choice of essential oil.

Deluxe Hand Scrub* – 4:30–6:30pm, Massage Room
Be one of the first to sample our new spa hand scrub—a luxurious treatment using brown sugar to exfoliate and soften the skin. After the sugar is removed with refreshing hot towels, you will enjoy a soothing hand massage.

Chair Massage* – 5:00–6:30pm, Physical Therapy Lounge
Take a load off with a brief, stress-relieving massage that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. It is proven that even 10 minutes of massage can reduce blood pressure, heart rate, and soothe achy muscles.
