Insider’s Tip: We always provide the following advice to our guests:
If they are in their first trimester of pregnancy, it is best to avoid getting a treatment.
Take a shower or bath before your treatment to help you relax.
Avoid rinsing off the oil from your massage for 60 minutes after your treatment. Let your skin soak it up for maximum hydration benefits.
Unique Treatment: Our Chi Balance Massage. Available in 60 and 90 minute treatments, it features a blend of Asian techniques personalized to suit your current yin-yang status. This service includes pressure work, energizing methods for yang stimulation, and relaxing body work for yin calm.
Splurge Treatment: The Authentic Tokyo Experience (150 minutes). Relax and rejuvenate your body and soul while experiencing the finest of Japan. After buffing your skin from head-to-toe and nourishing it with our seasonal Japanese scrub and wrap, complete your experience with a custom-tailored full-body massage.
Insider’s Favorite: Most our repeat guests love to book Your Customized Retreat, which is a custom-tailored spa journey with a selected therapist. Choose as many or as few different treatments as you would like to experience within the two/three hours. This is a great way to indulge yourself, and guests like to combine it with our enhancements:
