Acupressure treatments at The Spa at Reunion Resort range from simple to extreme. Either one will result in pure relaxation and relief of muscle tension. Reflexology is the most common type of acupressure and is offered here in 25-minute intervals. The spa therapist uses finger pressure on the reflex points on your feet to help improve circulation, reduce fatigue and invite a sense of calm into the body.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, our Forbes Travel Guide editors recommend Ashiatsu, which is a great option if you’re in need of some serious back work. Supported by wooden bars suspended from the ceiling, the spa therapist uses different foot strokes across your spine and back to help relieve tension. This treatment can be very effective if you’re suffering from chronic pain in the back, but it’s also very intense.
