The Forbes Travel Guide Soon-To-Be-Rated spa offers a massage that uses warm river stones from a nearby nature preserve. Another way to get in touch with Mother Nature is the antioxidant Moor peat therapy wrap, which draws on the natural and healing benefits of Moor mud. If you prefer an invigorating deep tissue massage, opt for a Shiatsu or a Thai massage. The spa also has scented “rituals” that are meant to be “soul-enhancing” experiences.
