HEALING HERBAL HARMONY
Soothing tense muscles, detoxing and relaxation The 60-minute session starts off with an oil massage to relax tight muscles and get rid of knots. A heated herb poultice made of fresh ginger, lemongrass, jasmine and green tea – said to help your body get rid of toxins, boost lymphatic drainage and improve overall health – is then used to massage your back and tummy area.
My stiff neck and aching shoulders felt less sore and more at ease after the treatment. Plus, the poultice has a pleasantly zesty jasmine tea scent, so you don’t have to worry about leaving the spa smelling like a medical hall.
