Massages at the Aveda Dayspa
Last year I worked so hard that a stress-fix massage sounded exactly like the treatment I needed. A full body massage to loosen the muscles and to make you all relaxed again. All massages start with a foot bath and scrub. By the time your legs and feet are super soft again you will feel so relaxed that it’s time to get on the massage bed, close your eyes and give in to doing absolutely nothing.
The stress-fix massage is perfect for everyone who has a busy job and wants to give its full body the attention it deserves. During the stress-fix massage aroma’s are used to help relieve feelings of stress. Essential oils with a mix of Lavender and other herbs and the combination with a full body and deep tissue massage will give you the feeling being reborn. I wouldn’t mind to do a massage like that every 4-6 weeks. I felt so relaxed that I can highly recommend it to anyone with a busy job or life. It really works well for your mindfulness.
Beauty treatments at the Aveda Dayspa
