(Peacefully) welcome the year of the dragon.
Celebrate Chinese New Year – today! – with the head-to-toe Tao of Detox treatment at the Langham, Boston's Chuan Body + Soul spa. Over two and a half hours, the treatment includes a full-body exfoliation and acupressure massage to stimulate circulation of blood, lymph and chi, the life force; a facial to target dehydration and a warm marine algae wrap to draw out toxins.
“Sea plants and algae have curative powers for arthritis, colds and influenza,” says spa director Maria She. “The electrolytic magnetic action releases excess fluids from congested cells and dissolves fatty wastes through the skin, replacing them with depleted minerals, particularly potassium and iodine.” The treatment is available for singles and couples, from $350.
