[ 40 ] • # dayspamagazine • july 2017 spotlight by Tracy Morin Earthlite Multi-Purpose Massage Crème BCL Spa Massage Cream in Mandarin and Mango Dazzle Dry Mani Pedi Shea Butter Cream Bon Vital' Massage Gel HydroPeptide Stimulating Relief Balm Massage Biofreeze Professional Gel Spa pros reveal what makes their most requested rubdowns so relaxing and restorative. What is your most popular massage service? Doug Elman, director of massage therapist training at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, headquartered in Trevose, Pennsylvania: Our signature Hot Stone Massage (50 or 80 min./$79.95 or $99.95, depending on location) helps soften muscle tissue and offers deep relaxation. Clients say the service is a lot different from what they expected— they love that we actually massage with the stones, rather than just place them on the body. Daniel Finch-McCaffrey, director of spa and fi tness for Eforea Spa at Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock in Sedona, Arizona: The Signature Full Circle Massage (90 min./$223) is inspired by the four directions—considered sacred by many indigenous cultures—and focuses on addressing guests' emotional, spiritual, mental and physical conditions. It starts with gentle exfoliation, followed by a therapeutic massage and heated stones. Then, the guest is wrapped (loosely or more tightly, per their preference) after an application of one of our essential oil blends, and the service concludes with harmonizing healing energy work and chakra balancing. Malia Taylor, lead massage therapist at Spa del Rey at The Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey, California: Our Fountain of Youth full-body treatment (60 min./$185 or 90 min./$250) incorporates HydroPeptide's Invigorating Body Wash, Active Body Scrub and Blueberry Nourishing Body Wrap. Then, the brand's Stimulating Relief Balm, Power Lift and Firming Moisturizer are applied to comfort tired muscles, while tightening and rejuvenating the skin. Guests continue to feel the cooling effects of the products' peptides for hours after this service. © GETTY IMAGES MASSAGE PRODUCTS
