The morning meetings have been grueling, but your afternoon is wide open. The resort-casino where your group has convened is bustling and noisy. Your attendees need a break from the circus-like sounds emanating from slot machines. You’re ready to hit the spa.

Up for some light lymphatic stimulation? Need some impurities removed from your skin’s cellular tissue? How about an aromatherapy facial with soothing blue chamomile, nourishing wild honey, and clarifying French lavender? Or, maybe you’d prefer a soothing Swedish massage—good for increasing circulation, reducing stress, and improving muscle relaxation.
