Upon entering the spa, youíll step inside a chic co-ed bathhouse (swimwear required), before escaping to an indulgent treatment. I received the Ancient Cane Ritual treatment, a 50-minute massage truly unlike anything else Iíve experienced before. It started out like a typical massage with some pressure point work and soothing relaxation before everything turned a bit more intense.
Bamboo reeds were then used as instruments to knead, roll and drum over my entire body. Sounds a little wacky but trust me when I say it worked wonders. The use of these clever tools worked deep into the muscles, easing away tension and tightness where I never knew existed. Bliss!
It took some getting used to, but it wasnít long before I was fully relaxed into oblivion as all of the stress and tension throughout my body was methodically rolled away by a diligent masseuse. Different reeds were used for different areas of the body and special attention was paid to trigger certain pressure points, as well. And while this particular treatment might not be for those who prefer complete silence (the masseuse checks in every so often to make sure the pressure of the varying reeds are still comfortable and effective); the overall result, in my opinion, is well worth the disturbance.
No stranger to luxurious, pampering massages, I speak from experience when I say this massage is a must-have for those who need a little extra oomph to unwind. It miraculously works deep into your muscles and makes a difference in how your body feels days later. I think itís safe to say that hidden inside this music mecca is a spa treatment worth seeking.
