If your nose makes the decisions when it comes to massages, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York offers several aromatherapy options guaranteed to send your olfactory nerves into high gear. The streamlined menu was designed with ease in mind — forget complicated or ineffective treatments — and developed using traditional Chinese medicine techniques and master aromatherapist recommendations.
The three-part holistic Warmth & Wellness treatment begins with a sea salt and olive exfoliation, detoxifies with a clay body mask and soothes and nourishes with a fig and olive oil body butter. For a trip to the Far East, the Oriental Essence combines ginger, mandarin and frankincense in an oil massage that will boot out any neck and shoulder tension. Keeping with traditional Thai techniques, the Lanna Massage uses ginger and lemongrass, as well as a special tamarind wood mat to get you back in tip-top shape. Using these eco-sustainable products specially produced by Amala, and hard-core techniques, the aromatherapy treatments at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa will get your body and mind back to balance in no time.
