Detox Enhancement, left & Valentine's Day Couple's Special, right.
When your traditional, default gifts of flowers and chocolate (god forbid, you made a last-ditch effort at gas station stale roses) go predictably pedestrian, charge up your love life by taking that special someone to a Burke Williams Spa, especially their Santa Monica location.
Or the very thought of Valentine's Day stresses you out, you can book this month's special of a Detox Enhancement. This aromatic aromatherapy sounds like it was tailor-made for the foodie in your life. An aromatherapy blend of juniper, cypress, ginger, fennel and lavender is incorporated into the de-knotting Pure Relaxation massage while the massage therapist rubs an heart-shaped Pink Himalayan salt exfoliating the skin as it detoxifies the body. All the savory sensation without the calories.
The massage/aromatherapist told this knotty, crooked, stressed-out scribe that there are ports or portals in the body that needs extra assistance in releasing the stress and the toxins out of the nerves and body. Applying the aromatherapy blend of juniper, cypress, ginger, fennel and lavender helps releases the toxins. The ginger provides the heat in releasing it while the lavender eases the body.
This month, February, just in time for "Heart's Day," Burke Williams is offering a special discount on the Detox Enhancement.
A 50 minutes session is $99 (regular price $130) while a 80 minutes session is $139 (regular price $180).
